This ARC was given to me for my honest review. Talk about your family drama. This book as it all. Rachel: A single school teacher from Texas who receives an email which she feels is to good to be true. The email is from Drew Fullerton, a prominent business man located in California He has made an offer that is pretty hard to refuse. He has offered her a teaching position, for his son Jonathan. She thinks this position is to good to be true so she brushes it off at first. Her friend Nancy continues to try to fix her up on dates with her friends. Finally Rachel gets sick of it and takes her spring vacation and heads to California to check out this new position. Jonathan: I felt really bad for him because he his torn between his mother and his father. This is what happens with divorce. When Rachel enters the picture as his school teacher, he falls in love with her. He picks up on her teaching style right away. He completely makes a 180 in regards to his behavior. Rachel’s teaching style challenges him and he starts to grow attached to her before she knows if she has the job. Drew: Divorced father of Jonathan, who has recommend Rachel come to California to be his sons personal tutor. Once he sees how she has changed his son for the better, in such a short period of time, he offers her the position. Alex: Drews brother who thinks Rachel is a gold digger since she has accepted the position of Jonathan’s tutor. He tries everything possible to get her to go bak to Texas. He feels that Drew has hired her so Drew can continue to have sole custody of Jonathan. He is in her ear at every turn. He feels Jonathan should be with his mother. He feels the only reason why he hired Rachel was to get back at his ex-wife. He warns her that she doesn’t want to get involved with the Fullerton family chaos. Elise: Drew’s ex-wife who lives with her tennis instructor boyfriend. She continues to seek custody of her son. Based on her actions, she gets 1 supervised visit per day. As the story unfolds, will she get full custody of her son? I loved Rachel and Jonathan’s chemistry from the first time they met. Within the first week she didn’t want to leave him. She accepts the position and then all the family drama unfolds. Even with all the drama, she continues to stand her ground and always has Jonathan’s best interest at heart. She is a very strong individual even though she has a troubled past. What is Drew’s motives for hiring Rachel? Is Alex being sincere when he feels Rachel is being used? How does all of this affect poor Jonathan? I gave this book 4 stars. I couldn’t put the book down. I was always wondering what was going to happen next. I can’t wait to read book 2.

Wow When you get the opportunity to help a young man who needs comes up & the money is great you think about it & jump. But there are a lot of underlying things going on also.

I received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review. This book was fantastic! Ginger Voight does such a fantastic job connecting you to the characters, and creating a great story plot! The last 3 years for Rachel have been absolutely horrible, after a horrific incident, she hasn't been the same. She's very closed off to the world except for her friends and to the kids she teaches. The male population has absolutely no chance with her. She's been burned and has absolutely no desire to go through that again. One day she gets an email from Drew Fullerton. He's a famous business man, known for having no mercy when buying out companies, but for some reason he wants her to home-school his son. This makes no sense to her since she is an average public school teacher, he could afford the best of the best, but instead he chooses her. At first she doesn't think anything of it, but after a very emotional conversation with her best friend, Rachel has decided it's time for a change. After Rachel accepts the job, her life doesn't get any easier. He falls in love with young Jonathan and is willing to do anything for him, especially become the buffer during a very ugly divorce Drew and his wife are going through. Rachel has to be the man in the middle so to speak with Drew's brother Alex starts to intervene. Alex thinks she's just a gold digger only pretending to care what's going on with Jonathan, if only he knew that Jonathan was the only reason why she stuck around. Throughout the story Rachel’s having to deal with all these accusations, and then also with her growing feelings for Drew. Ones she doesn't ever want to act upon, he's her employer and she is done with men. However, the more time she spends with Drew and Jonathan, the hard she falls for them both. After a shocking revelation, what will Rachel do? Will she stick around like she promised for the sake of Jonathan, or will she drop everything and leave and never look back? This book ends with a cliff hanger that leaves you begging for more. I can't wait to see what happens next with this hot mess of a family.

Enticed is a beautifully written story you should not miss out on! *I was given an ARC for an honest review. My fan gurl love affair with Ginger Voight’s writing all started with her Groupie Trilogy. I’m a huge rock star romance lover and I found Groupie in a Goodreads rock star read list. I devoured this book in one sitting, then quickly one-clicked Rock Star. After suffering a 3 day book hangover, I one-clicked a few other of her other books. I really enjoyed those reads, too! Ginger’s writing just pushes all the right emotional buttons in me. So when I got the opportunity to read an ARC of her latest book Enticed, I jumped at the chance! Enticed begins with Rachel Dennehy, a teacher living a solitary life in Texas. Rachel is haunted by ghosts of her past and dealing with a pushy best friend who wants her help her move forward. After getting a once in a lifetime offer to privately tutor the son of a very influential and rich businessman Drew Fullerton, Rachel accepts a week long interview for the job. Los Angeles and all the trappings of a wealthy lifestyle couldn’t be more foreign to Rachel. She is a down-to-earth, independent, and effusive. After meeting both Drew and his difficult to deal with brother Alex Fullerton, Rachel is not sure if this is the right job for her. But she immediately connects with Jonathan Fuller, Drew’s rebellious and wayward son. Jonathan resonates with something deep in Rachel and she will do anything to protect him. Even if it means breaking her own heart. If you’re read any of my past reviews, you’ll know I love a very strong heroine character. Rachel embodies all the qualities I love–smart, independent, fiercely loyal, and kind-hearted. She’s suffered a great deal in her past, but doesn’t allow it to stop her from living her life. Rachel also doesn’t allow people to speak down to her, rebutting any wrong assumptions about her immediately. But she doesn’t do it in a way that’s hateful. She’s matter-of-fact in her actions and words. I like that A LOT! I would befriend a person like Rachel in real life. Drew Fullerton is frustratingly formal, detached, and gorgeous. He is one of those people who you look at from afar, knowing that you’ll never have a man like is as your own. Drew is jaded after a disastrous marriage and doesn’t expect a plain Texas teacher to flip his world on it’s side. And because no Ginger Voight book is complete without a love triangle, Alex Fullerton unexpected interference in Rachel’s life creates another sexual distraction for her. Eventually this triangle comes to a head and the aftermath is devastating for everyone involved, including Jonathan. It’s this type of drama and angst that Ginger conjures up in her books that I live for! The romance and sex scenes in Enticed are great. Ginger doesn’t just throw her characters in the sack. She lets the connections grow, sexual tension simmers, and feelings get deeper. When Rachel and Drew finally make love, you are so damn happy for them. They’ve both suffered at the hand of love and you root for them to overcome all their baggage. As much as I love the actual sex scenes, which Ginger describes with gusto, it’s the way she lets Rachel and Drew’s relationship flourish. I was not disappointed by Enticed. I loved Ginger’s beautiful story of love, responsibility and acceptance. Ginger’s writing is addicting, drawing you into her world and not letting you go. I especially loved her message about divorce. Ginger delivers some serious verbal slap downs to her characters when they behave like idiots. Ginger would be a great family counselor if this writing thing doesn’t pan out. This book does end with a cliffhanger, but the next book Entangled is scheduled to be released January 28th! I give Enticed by Ginger Voight 4.5 out of 5 stars! Written by Dee McGee - Booze, Bookz, and Bad Boyz

**4.5 Stars** Ms. Voight had delivered another compelling read. Enticed has an engaging story and complex characters. And I thoroughly enjoyed my introduction to the Fullerton family. Rachel Dennehy is an extremely likable character. She's a teacher who gives her all to her students. She's warm and aaring. Rachel has suffered tremendous loss as well. And despite looking like a timid wallflower, this girl has some pluck. She's strong, independent, and opinionated. Drew Fullerton is the head of Fullerton Enterprises. He's the type of guy who sucks all the air out of a room upon entering. He's handsome, commanding, and about to become one of California's most-eligible bachelors. And he has a young son suffering in the fallout of a messy divorce. Jonathan is Drew's 9 year old son. He's intelligent, mature, sweet and he won my heart as well as Rachel's. As a child of divorce myself, I empathized with much of what Jonathan was feeling in regards to his parents' divorce. He broke my heart at times. I loved watching hi come to life with Rachel.  Rachel and Drew meet when Drew offers Rachel the position of private tutor to Jonathan. Rachel, being from small-town Texas, gets quite an education in living among the wealthy. She and Jonathan quickly attach to one another. It also seems that Drew becomes attached to Rachel as well. And although she has misgivings and all her internal alarms are blaring, she can't seem to fight the intense attraction she has to him. Adding tension to the story is Drew's brother, Alex. The brothers do not get a long as Alex has shunned the family business for what he feels is it's soul-corrupting tendencies. These men are like oil and water when mixed. Alex tries his darnedest to run Rachel off. He feels Drew is using her to win sole custody of Jonathan and that Rachel is a gold-digger. His intentions seem less than altruistic where Rachel is concerned. But when the bombshell is dropped, I was certainly reconsidering. Enticed is, of course, well-written and nicely paced. Ms. Voight didn't let me down as she's once again delivered an engaging story with well-developed characters. I'm most impressed with Rachel - a heroine who's remained strong despite her circumstances. And her bond with Jonathan was heartwarming. Enticed also illustrates the suffering children can go through when a divorce occurs. And Ms. Voight did a fine job portraying the Fullerton family dynamics. I'm anxious to learn more. I can't wait to finish book 2, Entangled. **I received an eARC of the book in exchange for an honest review.**
