Rating: 4.5 Stars A Touch of Temptation (The Sensational Stanton Sisters #2) by Tara Pammi, tells the story of the second Stanton sister Kimberly Stanton in The Sensational Stanton Sisters series. Cool, calm and collected CEO Kimberly Stanton is following her scandalous twin sister Olivia's footsteps by announcing her very sudden pregnancy and announcement of her secret marriage to rebel tycoon Diego Pereira. Just a few days ago she was all geared up to marry Alexander, who is now her sister's husband and now she is pregnant and married to the baby's father against her wishes. The scandal has affected both Kimberly's personal and professional life. With the loss of her credibility in business due to the scandal and her ever growing distance with her twin sister, the only person who can help her is her husband but only if she plays by his rules. A Touch of Temptation by Tara Pammi was an enjoyable read overall with the inclusion of loads of angst and non stop battles between the protagonists on pretty much everything. It was written well and delivered everything which Harlequin presents promises with a story which carries the standard elements. Diego was a self made man who had fought his way from the dirt poor dangerous areas of Rio to achieve unimaginable success. He was tortured from the demons his past and was hell bent in getting Kim back in his life after she walked away from their marriage. I liked that he was caring, protective and emotional at times. Though he irritated me at times with his irrational jealousy sometimes, I managed to love him by the end of the story. Kim was a very different heroine because she was logical, perfectionist, had a lot of emotional baggage and was not free with her emotions. Unlike typical harlequin heroines, she did not have any maternal feelings for her unborn twins and considered them to be an hindrance in her well planned out life but she did warm up to the feelings of motherhood. She was strong, independent and I liked that she matched Diego in every aspect but I would have preferred if she carried less baggage. The story was engaging and the characters had a solid background which explained their present actions. The angst just added to the emotional quotient of the story and although I got a little frustrated with the hide and seek the characters played with their emotions, it was a compelling read. The last two chapters just won me over and at the end I was rooting for the characters and the well deserved HEA they got. Overall, A Touch of Temptation is a well written good read with unconventional characters and loads of angst. If you liked the first book in the The Sensational Stanton Sisters series, then you will definitely love this even more.
The story of Diego and Kim would have been 5 stars if the characters where consistant. I would have preferred 30 less pages to the unnecessary angst. Diego was an ultra alpha who even when he realized the error of his way and chastised himself for it turns around and does something else. Kim starts off great she has some issues but at leadt she not being steam rolled. She morphs into a sex obsessed rug for Diego to walk over. (Spoiler) The man admits he was planning to dump to move in with his fallback girl when he gave into lust and knocked you up, and feel guilty and horny. Wrong! The other women angle in this story was too much for me, I just did not feel I could trust this man to not do whatever he felt like and then blame her. And by the way he didnt come after not one time, both times he tracked her down it was for a divorce and revenge he didnt start barely trying until he found out she was pregnant. This story only gave the illusion of Diego being nothing but loving toward, where in realty he was nothing but a jerk.
