Overview

This book is for mature audiences 18+ It contains explicit language and sexual content.

Sometimes being happily married and completely content is not at all what it seems.

That is what 35 year-old, happily married, mother of two, Alexis Summers finds out when she decides it is time to return to work. After being a stay-at-home mum for the past nine years, Alexis now realises a complete career change is just what she needs.
She becomes a Concierge Attendant in a prestigious hotel in Melbourne, working for the owner of the hotel, Bryce Clark. He resides in the penthouse, is extremely hot, and is a man who always gets what he wants. And what he wants is Alexis. She does a relatively good job resisting Bryce at first, but the undeniable chemistry, sexual tension and playfulness between the two of them is intense. He has copious amounts of money, sex appeal and above all else, is a genuinely nice guy. Bryce has been waiting for his one true love to come along, and he is positive that one true love is Alexis.
There is one problem; she is happily married to Rick, and no matter how strong her feelings are for Bryce, she is adamant she will not cheat. She draws a line in the sand, but finds it increasingly hard not to cross. Will she succumb to Temptation?

3.5 stars, Well written Ms Golland, you kept me reading all the way to the end!, The Prologue to this book had me in stitches, and also remembering back to when my kids were that young and how harassed I was at times, l started this book with trepidation as I didn't like that the story is based around Alexis cheating on her husband to whom Alexis has been happily married to for 12 years, the man she's only ever loved or been with and her two children. She takes a job at a hotel as concierge assistant (CA) at a local hotel, excited to be part of the workforce after nine years of not working. Now this I could relate to, and I must say that even though I was feeling slightly squiffy at her thoughts and reactions to her new boss, Bryce Clark, whom she accidentally spills her drink over before shes even started her first day! Bryce is a man who goes after what he wants and gets whatever he wants or needs. He's sexy and confidant and he takes charge and whisks Alexis off to the designer store to get them a change of clothes... Now here is another bit I had difficulty with, Bryce knows everything about her, as if he's stalking her. By the end of the first week she is promoted to replace his PA who is heavily pregnant, without fully being trained on what to do, on a side note... boy I wish I got paid that wage as a PA Bryce wants Alexis in his bed, but Alexis is married and it's not going to happen. But she's attracted to him, and as time goes by she can't help but feel like she is falling for him while still being in love with her husband Rick. There are some very hot sexual fantasy scenes! *fanning face* This story It pulls you right in from the beginning and keeps you on your toes until the very end of the book. Bryce is caring, compassionate, charming, and fun loving and single, but why he is hell bent on getting a married woman had me a bit confused, and contradicts his other qualities, but I still warmed up to him, Rick sounds like a typical Aussie husband, but he has a secret... There was a lot of of tension in this book which makes you keep turning the page to find out what happens next. Things I liked... Relatable main character. Characters were described well and you could easily imagine them as the plot unfolds. Humour, Alex's inner monologue was awesome. Rick (the husband) wasn't made to be an out and out villain. Alexis wasn't a young, naive virgin, but a 35 yr old mum who isn't a size 8! What I didn't like... There is a cliffhanger, but book 2 is out already. There is a third book. The infidelity, I kept thinking what about the kids, and although I still feel a bit uncomfortable about the way the story is going, but I will read the other two books and see what happens to Alexis, Bryce, Rick, and the two kids that are also going to be in the cross hairs to the decision that Alexis has taken... Well written Ms Golland, you kept me reading all the way to the end!

I have been married for over 33 years, so for me to be able to read this, I had to become Alexis to get into her mindset. What a great life she has.  But I know what she means when she says she needs something more in her life.  She needs to have an identity that is her own and a life with friends that can make her feel more whole. After returning to work after a long absence, having a hunky and rich boss is the greatest.  Having a hunky and rich boss who adores, worships and wants you for his own is just soo flattering and complimentary and just so validating her existence. Having to fight the feelings to want him and having to fight to stay in her marriage is so extremely and emotionally draining,. All I can say is bring on the next part because I want so much more to know where they go from here!!

I highly recommend Golland's Temptation series. The first book really only introduces the characters, it's the following three books that that dive into their love story. Yoy can't help but to love Bryce. Book 3.5 (Attainment) was just self-published and I'm dying for B&N to pick it up!

Temptation is a emotional rollercoaster ride sparked by lust and temptation. Alexis has decided to go back work after being a stay at home mom for nine years. It feels really good to her to be back in the workforce and being able to contribute to a company. When she meets her boss he is just delicious. Alexis is a flesh and blood woman and would be dead not to drool over Bryce Clark. She is happily married to Rick and there is nothing wrong with their relationship. Rick is an honest to God nice guy that worships the ground that Alexis walks on. The more time that Alexis spends with Bryce, the more she leans toward giving into him. He has wanted her from day one and her being married does not deter him. This story will keep you on the edge of your seat because you will like all of the characters. On one hand your like hell yeah Alexis get you some of that! On the other hand your like, do not cheat on Rick! My stomach was literally in knots. What do you do when faced with this? Well….you will just have to read Alexis’s story to find out if she gave in…or if she stayed true to the yummy Rick. This is a must read that you will devour and then say OMG I have to read book two! I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
