He was the stuff erotic dreams are made of
Salon owner Julie Stanford wanted Nathan Tucker ever since she gave him his first massage. Getting paid to feel every inch of his body, stripped, oiled, and spread out in front of her?

Unfortunately, he came around too late. Now Julie's moving on...
She was everything he'd dreamed of
The woman was driving him crazy. She lit fire to his insides then ran like a scalded cat. And now she's going to someone else to have all her fantasies fulfilled? Over his dead body... He's more than willing to give her what she wants, and as soon as he pins the little minx down, he'd show her his own brand of sweet seduction.

My Thoughts
Ok, so first off I'd like to say, I friggin love this series. Now that's off my chest lets get to the review. I figured I would just do these two together since I read them one right after the other. Sweet Seduction is Julie and Nathans book. Now, I've never had a role where the male lead was a smokin' hot bald guy, but hey there's a first for everything. I liked this book because it was different from the first two. Mastery didn't really play a role in this book. Julie doesn't have a submissive bone in her body, she goes after what she wants. And what she wants, or wanted was Nathan Tucker. But Nathan being of the male species doesn't quite get the smoke signals that Julie is waving in his direction. After Julie gives Nathan the best...ahem.. *massage* of his life he's determine to hunt her down and finish what she started. But Julie has moved on. Enlisting the help of Damon, the owner of The House from the previous two books, Julie is all set to indulge in her fantasy of having completely anonymous sex with not one, but two men. Of course Nathan finds out and worms his way into the equation with the ever-so-sexy Micah as the second man to Julies fantasy. Julie has no idea that she has been sleeping with the man of her dreams and Nathan decides it's time to come clean. Of course there are ups and downs to their relationship but finally Nathan takes matters into his own hands and decides that they tried it her way, now they are going to do it his way.

Sweet Temptation... ahhh. I LOVE this book. My favorite so far of the Sweet Series. There is such deep emotion through out the entire book and I'm glad that we caught a glimpse of it in the end of Sweet Seduction. Micah is a tortured man with a lot of pain in his past that he wants to keep buried. So he picked up and left his home town of Miami three years ago and moved to Houston where now he has a new set of friends and a job he loves. Angelina is the younger sister of Micah's dead best friend. She's loved Micah for as long as she's known him, but Micah was married and she loved Hannah, Micah's wife. But Micah and Hannah had a very different relationship. David, Angelina's older brother loved Hannah also, so David and Micah shared Hannah. It was a great life for them until a tragic accident left David and Hannah dead and Micah and Angelina alone. Angelina decided enough time has passed since the accident and she was going for what she wants most, Micah. After a rocky start where Micah tried his hardest to fight the attraction he felt towards Angelina, because "She is David's sister!" he finally gives in and makes her his. Then a stalker comes out of the woodwork. A man whose been after Angelina for a year now, one she thought she out smarted. Micah decides to do everything in his power to keep her safe. There is such emotion throughout this story it honestly made my chest hurt reading it. I really do love this series and I cant wait until Sweet Possession comes out next month. I've been waiting patiently for Connor to step outside his comfort zone. As I've stated before, I'm highly recommending this series.Pin It
