Overview

Force of Temptation by Suzanne Wright

Harley Vincent is resigned to life in the human world. Sure, being a margay shifter is half her nature, but life among humans gives her the freedom to roam and do as she pleases. That is, until anti-shifter extremists target her, putting her life in immediate danger.

When an old acquaintance and onetime fling, Jesse Dalton, shows up to offer the protection of his pack, Harley hesitates. She may have feelings for Jesse that go beyond their one-night stand, but life among shifters means giving over her independence to the needs of pack. Plus Mercury Pack has its own threat to face: a rich half-shifter is determined to claim their territory at any cost.

Jesse, who lost his true mate as a child, has wanted Harley since their night together, and he’s not letting her go again. They may not be destined for each other, but he knows she belongs to him and with his pack. Even if he can convince her to join him now, can he convince her to stay?

I really love Ms. Wright's shifter romances but I could not finish the previous book she released before this one because for some reason, the characters felt like carbon copies of others from previous books. For that reason, I was kind of hesitant to read this one, too. But guess what? I had no such issues with this one and I really enjoyed it, so much that I'm now going to go back and finish the other book. FORCE OF TEMPTATION is classic Suzanne Wright - a really enjoyable story filled with humor, passion and great characters, and hard to put down until the end. I do recommend reading the Phoenix Pack series or at least the last two books in that series before starting this series, to get more background on most of the characters in this book. Harley Vincent is half-shifter, half-human, not completely comfortable in either world, but after growing up without any roots in the shifter world, she likes the freedom living among humans gives her. At least until she becomes a target of extremists out to destroy shifters and even more in her case, out for her because of her father's alleged role in the shifter group working against the extremists. Jesse Dalton was the brooding, quiet enforcer from previous books but wow, he was hiding a whole lot under that. He's totally over the top in every way- very blunt, possessive and protective and will go to great lengths for those he cares about. He claimed Harley for his own a long time ago and the threats against her mean that he can stop keeping an eye on her from afar and bring her into his life for good. Harley is just perfect for Jesse. She's fierce, independent, alpha in her own right and has a mouth that won't quit, but lacks the patience for drama or head games. Both Jesse and Harley come with baggage but I liked that they knew what they wanted and went for it sans the drama. The author has expanded with this book by introducing new elements to the story, which I was apprehensive about but ended up liking a lot. As usual, the secondary characters are just as much fun as the main characters and it was great to keep up with their lives here. This is one author's work I don't hesitate to recommend because there's always something to love.

4.5 “You were meant for the me I am now” Stars Every time I pick up a new Suzanne Wright book I’m afraid that it won’t have another unique, strong, kick-butt, independent and quirky heroine. There is no real basis for my fear because each time she proves me wrong. In fact, hot damn! She did it again. I think Force of Temptation is my new favorite, right behind Feral Sins. Harley is a half margay cat shifter (yes, I had to Google it too) living in the human world. Her experience with a pride and her family was not exactly exemplary. Her attitude along with the nature of her cat has made it easy for her to keep away from pack/pride life. That is until extremists plan to bomb her car and she is saved by Jesse and his pack. Although Jesse lost his true mate when they were kids, he is absolutely sure Harley is the mate for him. Now he has the perfect excuse to make her stay with him and finally convince her of what he’s known for a long time now, Harley is his. While they have The Movement and the extremist all up in their business, Harley and Jesse need to deal with issues from the past with his old pack and family regarding Harley. Not only that, but a wealthy half shifter is pushing the Mercury pack into selling their territory to him. With the usual action packed fights, intrigue, suspense and incredibly hot shenanigans going on, Force of Temptation was a fantastic read. “I don’t play games, Harley, so I’ll tell you straight. I want you. In my bed. In my life. Where you belong.” I loved both Harley and Jesse. They were both dealt a crappy hand early in life but became stronger because of it. Harley was totally bada*s, independent and just plain awesome. I adored her. Jesse was the perfect alpha wolf, obsessively possessive, bossy and he took brooding to a whole new level. I also loved how they were not true mates, but at the same time, they were perfect for each other. I believe Ms. Wright did a fantastic job with this latest installment and I can’t stop keep waiting for more. *I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book*

Aaaaand...she did it again! Suzanne Wright is simply amazing at what she does. Her stories are so much fun to read (also re-read), just pure joy. There's a reason Suzanne is one of my favourite authors and this book proves once again why. The story has all the elements that I would like in my book, from the sexy scenes to the mystery and action. We also can't forget her completely alpha heroes that would do for their women abslutely everything. And no matter how difficult the task, he will live up to it. We also can't forget the heroines, man, they are one crazy bunch but we simply can't help but love them. I adored Harley so much, she's such a strong and reasonable female that will protect her loved ones to her last breath. Totally enjoyed the story, the plot is awesome and the tension is perfect. All in all, I wish the next book will come soon. :)

Review: First, love the name Harley, wanted to name one of my girls that but my husband was a stick in the mud. So, I have a habit of picking up books and reading them out of series order, most of the time without realizing it. This time I did know, but I was so drawn in by the cover and blurb that made say screw it to order. At this point I do not know who the first book was about but I am waiting for Christmas break to get it and find out. I am a big paranormal and supernatural romance fan, so I loved this book about such a diverse group of shifters. I don't think I have ever read books that had margays, eagles and kestrels in them. I really enjoyed that it was not just the same old type of shifters. Another thing I love in books is a little snarky/witty dialog and this book is full of it. Another thing this story has got going for it, is a super hot couple who have issues but are better together even when they are disagreeing. The Author did a really great job writing the sexy scenes and writing an exciting and action packed story also. Overall, if you have not guessed I loved the story and this world. This Author is going on my auto-buy list! 4.5Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the publisher.*

I'm such a huge fan of Suzanne Wright's stories. She delivers the goods I'm looking for in my books. She provides the very Alpha Hero's, the mature, rational heroines and lots of hot scenes! In addition to this she has such great side characters. I loved Harley's cousins. Everything about them makes me hope they get a story of their own. It absolutely cracked me up that one of the young pups kept quoting lines from horror movies. I mean that's just funny stuff right there. And to top it all off, what I have read of her books, her Heros don't fight the attraction to their mates. There's nothing sexier than a man who knows what he wants and he goes for it full throttle. I want more, more and more from this author! ARC provided by NetGalley.

I received a copy of this story from NetGalley. I want to start this review by saying I am a big Suzanne Wright fan, I have followed her Phoenix pack series and I have read it and enjoyed it. Reading Force of Temptation was amazing from start to finish, Jesse and Harley have a history together. Jesse lost his true mate as a child, after overhearing Harley trying to pull his sister from a downward spiral of drug addiction, he falls for her. The story is action packed, romantic suspense with an intriguing storyline, complex characters that you'll love, hilarious banter, danger,violence, and twists. I recommend not only this book, but any and all of Suzanne Wrights stories.
