Kris Bryant has created something very special with her novel Temptation. She has written a beautiful romance filled with emotion. This story made me cry, and that doesn’t happen very often.
This is a tale of contradictions. The main characters are so different that it’s hard to see how they could end up together. There is an age gap. Brooke is fourteen years older than Cassie. There is a financial gap with Cassie a struggling college student while Brooke is the COO of her family’s multi-million-dollar shipping empire. There is also a class disparity, and even worse, Brooke is Cassie’s boss since she hires Cassie to be her six-year-old son’s nanny. All of these problems should have kept the two apart, but the attraction and chemistry between the two is very strong.
This is also a tale of love; love of family and friends, but most of all, a romantic love that can overcome all the hurdles the two main characters must endure, if they can find the courage to do so. The writing is excellent, as we expect from such a talented author. The characters are easy to connect with, and even fall in love with. The story is amazing, and it is a perfect book to read during this holiday season.
Temptation has my highest recommendation. Just be sure to have a box of tissue close by as you read.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
