The Right Temptation by Diane Escalera

Kayla Martinez has recently landed an RN position at a prestigious hospital in her hometown. The new job is everything she’s hoped for, especially when one hot specimen shows up in the ER. She hasn’t seen her childhood crush in years, and considering how much hotter he’s gotten over time, she almost ends up needing resuscitation.

The last thing Nico LaCosta needs is a broken arm. Now his pal’s kid sister wants to soothe his pain, but he’d rather keep his distance so her big brother doesn’t break his other arm. Kayla’s no child anymore, though. She’s one hot-blooded woman, determined to remind him of a mind-blowing kiss back when they were teenagers. Leave it to Kayla to drop by his house unannounced and play Nurse Seductive. A guy has to follow the buddy code, or face the consequences. Still, sometimes giving in to temptation is worth it…

Review: Since the age of 13, no guy has ever measured up to Kayla’s idea of caliente like Nico La Costa. It’s hard to believe that she has held a candle for him practically her whole life. Well, who could blame her, right? Still, stalking the guy might be a little too extreme. There was no denying the instant physical attraction between the two right from the start; however, Nico was not seeking the complication of a relationship. He had to “[think] with the right head.” (13) The best part was when he tried to distract himself with an Xbox game until she came out in her skimpy outfit. Suddenly, it became a question of: what game? Told in the witty banter of Kayla and Nico, this story is a teeter-totter of lust and desire with very little resistance. There must something to the old adage: “Latin men had a reputation for being good lovers.” (23) I definitely agreed with Kayla about tattoos: “She didn’t mind a well-placed tattoo, but some men took it to the extreme. Not Nico.” (50) The whole thing seemed to take place in one sultry, provocative weekend as snippets of their shared history filtered through. One thing was clear: Kayla was determined to hook him—hook him in the saddle, hook him for life. My goodness! Of course, after their climactic evening, who ends up showing up? His mamá! Oh, snap! The writing was decent, but the story did not go beyond the wild passion, which consumed the entire length of the novel. A quick read for romance lovers.

3.5 stars:  3.5 stars THE RIGHT TEMPTATION is the most recent release in Diane Escalera's series of novellas featuring the friends and family of the LaCosta family. This is Nico LaCosta and Kayla Martinez's story. Like many novellas, this is a short story so there is very little time or space to build a relationship therefore our hero and heroine are known to each other, although it has been a number of years since they last had contact. Kayla Martinez is now a nurse, working at the local hospital and her newest patient is her teen crush Nico LaCosta. But Nico has always been off limits as he was and still is one of her brother's best friends. And on this night, Nico is so out of it he doesn't recognize Kayla. Kayla decides to put a plan into action and over the course of the storyline and 24 hours, Kayla will nurse, seduce and fall in love all over again. The Right Temptation is a quick read. There is a short introduction where Kayla and Nico are reunited, but Nico does not remember her or anything about his hospital stay. Three weeks later, Kayla is so obsessed and determined to see Nico, she stalks his place until she is able to build up the nerve to knock on his door. What ensues is a seduction straight out of play by play book. Diane Escalera has written a storyline of friendship to love. It was almost comical at times to watch Kayla seduce her way into Nico's life, especially when he was `almost' oblivious to Kayla's intent. The majority of the book focuses on Kayla's seduction of Nico and almost the entirety of the story takes place in Nico's house. There is some backstory and a few of the previous storyline characters make a cameo but the novel can be read as a stand alone. If you like a quick, short story with a little humor, plenty of seduction and just the right amount of sex, The Right Temptation is the perfect read on a lazy afternoon or just before bed ;) see all of my reviews at : thereadingcafe(dot)com

3.5 Stars ~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Escalera has a great voice for Contemporary Romance. It’s fun and flirty, sweeping you up in a romance that is thrilling and passionate. ~ Under the Covers Kayla Martinez is a saucy one, but she wants Nico LaCosta to discover that for himself. As a new RN at a hospital, Kayla is making big strides in her life, but her romantic life is lacking a little bit. So when she sees her childhood best friend again, Kayla plays the part of the siren and tries to make Nico realize just what he is missing out on. Nico has recently been injured. As he nurses his broken arm, he is glad to have the hot and sexy little Kayla around to help him. At times I thought Nico to be a mama’s boy. He really does have a young heart, so careless and free. However, his feelings for Kayla are of the adult nature. Escalera has a great voice for Contemporary Romance. It’s fun and flirty, sweeping you up in a romance that is thrilling and passionate. I loved Kayla’s game-for-anything attitude, it really kept the chemistry fun and exciting. The dialogue in this novella is tautly-written and witty. Escalera isn’t afraid to play around with her characters and bring out the flirty side and I admire that about her writing. For some hot latin love, be sure to check out this fun read, perfect for the summer season! *ARC provided by author

Diane pens "The Right Temptation" in a steamy hot plot set in a hospital where Kayla is working as an RN and her high school sweetheart happens to be a patient. Between the fantastic, hot story line and Diane's characters that have terrific chemistry, this novella will captivate you from the start. Another great book by Diane that I highly recommend for all adult readers. This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.
