After last summer's failed attempt at romance, Gina is absolutely done with men. And especially with millionaires. She has a good job as a fashion editor and amazing friends, and she's decided she needs nothing else. All she really misses is the sex. But that rush just isn't worth the risk of being ensnared in another relationship. When the hot bartender at her best friend's Sonoma wedding suggests some harmless stress relief, she takes him up on the offer. When it's sufficiently satisfactory, she indulges in a repeat—for the road. When she learns he's actually the wealthy owner of the vineyard, the mix of fury and fear is damped only by the knowledge that she never has to see him again.
Hunter Cavaliere is determined to honor his grandfather's legacy, and so far, he's right on track. The vineyard is thriving, he has plans for expansion, and his wines speak for themselves. The only thing missing is the right woman to share it all. But through his grandparents' marriage, Hunter learned what true love is, and he's unwilling to settle for anything else. A woman who judges him because of his money definitely isn't high up on his list. Still, when circumstance unbelievably keeps bumping him into the intriguing brunette from Portland, he can't shake the feeling that she is someone he should pursue.
Gina's poised to run the other way, but one more taste of Hunter may just prove too tempting to resist.

I enjoyed this well-written, sweet book. Gina has had bad experiences with men, especially her wealthy ex-boyfriend, so now she just engages in no strings attached "stress relief" occasionally when she meets someone she won't encounter on a regular basis. While at a friend's wedding at a vineyard in Sonoma, she takes up the bartender, Hunter on his offer. Turns out Hunter is not just a bartender, he's the vineyard owner, and when circumstances cause them to bump into each other in Oregon, he follows his instincts that there is something special going on. This is a stand alone book, though it is also part of a series with related characters. I can't wait to read the other books in this series, as well as anything else this author has written!
If you are looking for a quick and easy book to read this is the one. Tasting Temptation is an enjoyable read with some very hot naughtiness thrown in to keep the reader involved in Gina and Hunter's "just one night" relationship that keeps becoming another night. The author does a phenomenal job of describing the wine country and all the scene details throughout the book. Her attention to detail shows throughout the book. And, of course there has to be someone to cause problems and honestly Gina's ex was extremely bad in my opinion with no redeeming qualities but he added more necessary meat to the plot. The reader will enjoy this read and I give it 3.5 STARS A copy was gifted for an honest review.
