Overview

For Vanessa Virtue, all work and no play leads straight to temptation, one that’s too hot to touch...or resist.

A well-deserved work promotion opens up a thrilling world that Vanessa could only long for until now: exotic travel, a corporate credit card, and the opportunity to ogle hunk-and-a-half Kyle Nettles. Unfortunately, their employer has a strict “no dating within the company” policy. So instead of succumbing to her feelings, Vanessa hones her flirtations on the competition: a rock star sales exec who works for their rival company.

Rory Ellery has dreamy blue eyes and a kiss that threatens to obliterate Vanessa's taboo crush on Kyle...and just might provide a great chance for spying on the competition. That is, unless Rory is actually spying on her. When Vanessa goes digging for dirt with Rory, what she uncovers is scandal—and risks losing her job completely. To make things right with her employer, she’ll have to enlist Kyle’s help. But to make things right with her soul, is she willing to risk her job and her security in order to open her heart to Kyle.

    Fantastic read!

    By far the best romance novel I've read in years. I can't wait for Ms. Gibson's next installment in the Resisting Temptation series.

    Hot guy on cover! Hot READ inside! 'Nuff said!

    The cover is what caught my eye, and for $3, I figured what the hell? But I quickly found myself immersed in this story! Vanessa is a great heroine and I laughed till my sides hurt reading this! This is an AWESOME first romance novel and I can't wait for the next romance novel from Ms. Gibson!

    Fun, sexy, funny, romantic!

    I downloaded this read for the cover alone. WOW! Hot guy at twelve o'clock! And I wasn't disappointed at all. Vanessa Virtue is a fun, flirty, goofy, friendly, adorable, identifiable heroine and I'm with her every step of the way. Kyle is yummy and delicious and I couldn't get enough of him. The story moved fast with each click of my Nook with a cast of entertaining characters and sidekicks. I hated to see the book end and I look forward to more books in this series!

    Love Marley's writing style...

    I love the storyline & the characters, they feel like your own circle of friends. Marley's way of writing makes you feel like you are right there with the characters. I can't wait for her next book, no matter what the genere.

    SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!

    I am a long time fan of reading, of all types! As for this romance novel, it's one of the top romance novels I've read in my life! This one does not disappoint! Marley, is one of the finest authors of our day! After reading this book, she leaves you wanting her to keep writing! The book is tantalizing, luscious, a red-hot romance to it's core! Great characters, great plot, a book you won't be able to put down!


    A prolific writer, she combines perfectly, the vivid scenes, and landscape, of the story! She captivates her audience so profoundly, you feel like you are there within the story, never wanting to leave! I have read literally, thousands of books, the only disappointment you will feel here, is waiting for her next book to be released! I would highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a great novel, of any kind! With the current economic climate, it makes an awesome, inexpensive gift, too! You won't regret it! Enjoy!

    A different twist from my favorite young adult author

    I'm a huge fan of Marley Gibson. She's best known for her YA series "The Ghost Huntress". I'm over 30, but thoroughly enjoyed it (do a search and check it out as well.) To read a title squarely aimed at adult readers was a welcome surprise from Marley! Most authors write for one genre of literature, because thats all they know. Marley has successfully crossed over into another genre I didn't expect! This story is fantastic. I LOVE Marley's wry sense of humor. You're going to love it as well! FIVE STARS

    What a treat! Great fun contemporary romance, my favorite kind!

    This book hit my eReader just in time for the holidays! Amidst all of the hustle and bustle I was looking for a relaxing escape and CAN'T TOUCH THIS nailed it for me! The writing was clean and polished and oh so charming. The characters sucked me in right from the opening pages and the plot was fun and entertaining until the last page. I'm familiar with Marley's Ghost Huntress series, as well as her Christmas Miracles books, but this was my first foray into her adult romance side. What a treat. She's a writer to watch as this is the first in the series. At this price you can't go wrong, you'll be impressed as this stands out among the competition!

    Entertaining story, easy to visualize, and an overall fun, easy

    Entertaining story, easy to visualize, and an overall fun, easy summer read. Marley develops her characters into people that you feel like you know and you can tell she's definitely pulling from her past corporate life. I am not normally a romance reader, but I did find this story comical and believable. Kudos for a fun story!!

    I have been shopping for a good read for weeks. I read the reviews on this book and cant wait to get tangled up in this book. Maybe i will be out of my rut of starting books and losing interest in them bc of the story lines. Can not wait!
