No Strings Attached the first book in this series is one of those books in the Brazen series that I kept meaning to read but never got around to it. So I wasn't sure what to expect when I started Tempted by the Soldier.   I'm not sure I have the right words to explain how much I enjoyed this book. From the get go I was completely hooked and the fact that Ms Day was able to bring me to tears in a couple of sections just goes to show how real the emotions felt. There is also some very sexy moments in this book that will leave you a little hot under the collar. It's an excellent read and if I could give it 10 out of 5 I would. Oh and I may have bought No Strings Attached and read it the moment I finished Tempted by the Soldier. Definitely looking forward to more books in this series.

Tempted by the Soldier is the second book in author Nicolette Day’s Falling For You Series and holy hell….this book was drop dead delicious! Photographer Lilly Grayson had never hated Mother Nature more than she did right at this very moment.  She’s supposed to by flying to Vermont for her friend’s wedding but of course, a freaking hurricane has to be blowing through so now she’s sitting and waiting for the absolute last person on this earth she wants to see to come pick her up so they can drive the 15 hours together.  Oh, joy.  Nate Jennings.  Brother of the groom, smoking hot Marine and former one night stand….and now she can add tardy to that list since he was two hours late.  Luckily sitting, and stewing, gives her time to formulate a plan.   A plan to get back at him for leaving her feeling cold and cheap after their one and only night of hot and steamy sex.  She shouldn’t be bitter because they really only had one night together but the fact was she couldn’t stop thinking about him since that night.  So now she was planning on using her female wiles to get back at him during their 15 hour excursion and leave him wanting her as badly as he left her wanting him. But you know what they say about the best laid plans, right? Of all the dangerous missions Nate Jennings had been on, this was by far the most risky.  Why did he have to be stuck in the small confines of his truck’s cab with Lilly for a grueling 15 hours? It was bad enough he hadn’t been able to stop thinking about her since their one night together and now he had to deal with her animosity toward him.  Not that he could blame her.  She had every right to be pissed at him…but did she have to make pissed off so sexy?  There was no way he would be able to keep his hands off of her through this trip.  But he needed to stop thinking that way.  She deserved a man who was whole and not screwed up beyond repair…which is the exact opposite of what he was.  She wouldn’t want to be saddled with a Marine carrying more baggage than a department store.  The problem is, he wanted her with a desperation that defied logic.  It was going to be one hell of a roadtrip… With so much raw emotion and lust crammed into such close quarters for hours on end, it will be one hell of a ride for Nate and Lilly….and one that will change their lives forever. You know that one meme of the kids wearing their “time-out” shirt?  If you don’t, I’ll explain.  Two kids who love each other but fight like cats and dogs are forced to wear one extra-large shirt and work out their problems ultimately reminding them that they do, in fact, care for each other and that differences can always be figured out.  Well, Nate and Lilly’s situation reminds me so much of that shirt!  There is so much chemistry between them that it practically burns the pages but their differences are getting in the way.  Nate is delicious.  He’s smoking hot and is so alpha that I loved reading every man-handling and cave-man-like scene.  He’s also beyond stubborn.  He doesn’t see himself worthy of Lilly.  He’s got emotional scars that are in dire need of healing and if he could just take a step back and see that Lilly is willing to help him, he could have a chance at happiness.  Lilly is just as stubborn but in a different way.  She is trying so hard to deny her attraction to Nate and tries so hard to put up an angry front.  But in the end, they both let down their defenses and ultimately give in.  Dear God…when they give in it is pure passion.  Yum, yum, yum.  But there’s more than just smexy scenes to this story and the emotions run really high at times.  Hurt, loss, tragedy, and guilt all play a big roll and it made this story that much better. Oh, and the end?  Freaking BEYOND perfect! I finished this book after midnight and was so tempted to wake my husband up just to tell him how much I loved this ending.  Lucky for him, I refrained! I am really, really hoping we get more from this series because I absolutely loved these characters! Thank you, Nicolette, for one hell of a book!

I knew within the first couple pages that I'd stumbled upon an amazing book with Tempted by the Soldier. Of course, I knew of Lilly and Nate from reading No Strings Attached, but I had no idea how easily I would connect with them and how deeply their story would move me. Books like this one are why I love reading so much. This was nothing short of perfection. I loved Lilly. Her first scenes with her friend Paige grabbed me. I liked her attitude and her humor. I wanted to know more about her feud with Nate and their history. Nate was a complicated guy. His story isn't necessarily new. I've read many a book about a soldier who suffers with memories of things he saw overseas and the guilt that he made it home when so many didn't. But this is one of the best of the bunch. I felt everything he was dealing with and understood why it left him in the state that it did. I wanted to hug him. I wanted to make it better. I wanted to push him and Lilly together, lock them in a room and make them finally be honest with each other. I wanted it all.  I got the next best thing – them in a car during a road trip. (Have I mentioned I love road trip books? And antagonist relationships? I totally do.) No longer able to hide from the pull between them, walls came down and feelings were faced head on. I loved every single minute of it. It was sexy, sweet, the good kind of angsty and full of feels. Seriously, nothing I can say about Tempted by the Soldier will do it any kind of justice. This is one you just need to pick up and experience for yourself. It's easily one of my top five Brazens of all time – and one of the best books I've read so far this year. I hope this series continues. I'd love for Paige to get a book.

I loved the story of Nate and Lilly. Seeing them try to fight the love between them was great.

I did enjoy this story, but gotta admit, I'm personally feeling the soldier/marine aspect is getting over done. Now with that being said, it has a great story line, and very likable characters. The both have very similar "life issues", but it definitely worked for them. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Nate and Lilly are interesting characters to say the least. First introduced in No Strings Attached the duo end up in a one night stand after giving in to their mutual attraction. Nothing wrong with that. They both knew what they were getting into, right? Not so much. Before they ended up in his bed they spend the entire night talking, bonding. I think that’s great. If I’m attracted to someone I would at least like to get to know them a bit more before I up and sleep with them. But for Nate and Lilly, it just doesn’t work. Flash forward a year later and Lilly needs a ride to Vermont to photograph a wedding and her only hope to make it there on time is Nate. The two constantly bicker and press each buttons with no end in sight. It’s obvious to everyone but themselves that they are completely in love with each other. Is it their pride that blind them, or something else? I’m leaning towards pride. Neither wants the other to get the upper hand, to have the other get the better of them. As their journey to Vermont continues they ultimately give in to their attraction again, and again, and again. But as they spend more time together they finally realize their feelings and it scares them both senseless. Nate isn’t going to be around for long and Lilly cannot bear the thought of turning into her mother. They end up finding their peace but it definitely takes love, patience and care. Tempted By The Soldier is a great book if you love the “enemy-to-lover” trope. Nicollette Day got it down pat. She also give the right amount of humor to make a book just that much better. I don’t know what I would have done with this book if I didn’t get to look forward to the funny parts. I just had to know they were coming. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the book. But Lilly and Nate are completely frustrating throughout most of the book. Their constant back and forth of their feelings and how they treat each other? It’s exasperating after a while. I’m happy they got their happily ever after, but it was tough, for them and me as a reader, to get to that point. I also just need to put this out there, Nate is a Marine, not a solider. Soldiers are in the Army.

Nate and Lilly what a strong storyline. It's a must read can't put into words how much I loved this book.

After reading the first book in this series, I was thrilled to see this second installment. If you  like a book with a little of everything--humor, a damaged marine who can't keep his hands off of the girl who "tempts" him to the bone, letting go of guilt, a sexual chemistry that sizzles on a stormy road trip...this is the book for you. Looking forward to the next release in this series. A copy of this book was provided by the author in return for an honest review.

What an emotionally intense story!  I loved Lilly from No Strings Attached, the pushy fun friend.  In this book, when she hurt, I hurt.  It was so easy to connect with her, not from personal experience, but just the way she was written.  She was a tough mouthy woman but vulnerable when it came to Nate.  And Nate was a broken confusing man.  It was intense watching him fight his inner demons but still want the HEA.  I loved their connection and the way Lilly wanted to help him.  It was a great book and it truly touched me.

This was a steamy follow up to No Strings Attached, the authors first book. It involves Nate, an army helicopter pilot and Lilly, a photographer. They hook up at Jace and Hayden's bar and have since parted ways. They are in the same social group and interaction is at worst bickering/fighting and at best hilarious flirtation. They end up trapped in a car ride by rain, and begin to work things out. This book was a wonderful combination of steamy sex, quick dialogue, and fun supporting characters. I found Nate's secret/back story a limit cliche, but that didn't limit my enjoyment of the book.  I received an Arc copy for an honest review.

Reviewed by Kim for Read Your Writes Book Reviews It’s been a while since I’ve read a book featuring a truly, truly tormented hero. Nate Jennings is such a hero. Nate, a Marine Search and Rescue helicopter pilot, survived a crashed in which the seven people he was supposed to take to safety died. Ever since, he’s been living with survivors guilt. In fact, his guilt goes back to the day he enlisted, with him running away from his sick and dying mother, leaving his younger brother to handle everything. Lilly Grayson started out as NOT one of my favorite heroines. Initially, she comes across as being an ungrateful witch with a capital “B”. I mean, she has a good reason not to like Nate. She just takes her acts and outrage a little too far. But once she lets her walls down and sees Nate for someone other than the donkey’s behind she believes him to be, she’s not so bad. Tempted by the Soldier takes you on an emotional, heart-breaking roller coaster ride with as Nate deals with his past demons and his desire to have the future he wants but doesn’t feel he deserves.

Tempted by the Soldier is centered on Lilly and Nate's love/hate relationship with each other. After one night of curl your toes, unforgettably hot sex, Lilly wakes up alone with money left on the dresser for her. She vows then and there to never get involved  with him again.  After Lilly's flight to her friend's wedding (Hayden from 'No Strings Attached') is cancelled, she has no choice but to endure a long road trip with Nate. She can't leave Hayden without a photographer or her best friend. Though Lilly isn't sure whether she or Nate will survive the trip. The chemistry between Lilly and Nate is off the charts hot, hot, hot. I've always loved enemies to lovers book and Nicolette Day does a fantastic job showing that transition. From the beginning of the story, the banter between the two is absolutely hilarious. It's extremely witty and feels like something one would actually hear in real life. Here's an example:  Nate – “Could you get your feet off the dash?”… “I just waxed it” Lilly – “What a coincidence,”…”I just waxed too.” The one thing that I wasn't absolutely in love with was the pacing. It felt a little rushed to me. It may be that I just fell in love with the characters and their journey that I didn't want it to end. But it was a little to fast for me and I would have liked the story to have been a little less fast paced. Tempted by the Solider is overall a fantastic, sexy read. The Falling for You series and all other novels by Nicolette Day will on my automatic buy list for sure. *I received an ARC ebook of this title from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.*

*ARC Courtesy of Brazen/Entangled Publishing* I have to say one of the things I love most when reading a book by this publishing house, is that you know it is going to be by a great author and that the book is going to be one that leaves you with that goofy ass smile on your face when it is over. I loved Jace and Hayden's story in the first book (although it was far to short) but this one, man this one took the cake.... This is a beautiful story about Nate and Lilly. Nate is Jace's older brother who is also a former marine. He escaped a narrowing helicopter accident years before in which all of his team mates died. He carries their death around with him wherever he goes and is unable to forgive himself or let anyone get close to him as he does not think he deserves it. Lilly is a friend of Hayden's and a photographer. A year ago she spend a wonderful night with Nate until he hurt her by just walking away. Now a year later she has to hitch a ride with him to Jace and Hayden's wedding which is a long 15 hour car ride away.... Of course this is where all the fun begins for these 2 lovebirds.  A broken down car and a severe storm leaves them stranded together in a motel for a night where Nate decides he is done pushing Lilly away. The only problem is he is being re-deployed in 2 weeks time and he has not told Lilly. Will Nate be able to walk away from Lilly again when all is over and done, and will he finally forgive himself and commit to the one women who has a hold on his heart? Can Lilly forgive him for lying to her again and accept his decision to re-deploy?? Buy it and find out, you wont be sorry....trust me!!!

Having read No Strings Attached, the novella that prequels Tempted by the Soldier, I had absolutely no hesitation in reading this. Nicolette Day has written an amazing book which unleashed all my emotions. It could be read as a standalone, but personally I'd recommend NSA as there is character crossover. Fire meets fire where Nate and Lilly are concerned. They slept together once, he legged it afterwards and she's spent 12 months hating his guts. But his brother and her best friend are getting married and the only way Lilly can get to the wedding is by taking a road trip with Nate. A storm is brewing. And it's not just one of the weather variety... I fell completely in love with them both and their chemistry was sizzling perfection. Lilly is a firecracker, she can hold her own and has a smart mouth but realistic weaknesses. Nate, well there aren't enough adjectives to describe the man. Aside of the fact that he made my heart (& other places) flutter, he is the epitome of a tortured hero. I felt his pain and I wanted to delve into the book and take it all away from him. Tempted by the Soldier has catapulted itself up there as one of my favourite Brazen books and is the first to reduce me to actual tears. Most definitely a book I recommend. I received a copy of this as an ARC courtesy of Entangled Publishing for an honest and unbiased opinion.
