Story 1: Tempting Witness
When Madison Dubois witnesses a terrible crime, she goes to the only place she knows she’ll be safe, Detective Rafe Jackson’s house. Rafe has been in love with Madison Dubois for longer than he cares to admit. Unfortunately for him, she views him as a big brother. Or so he thinks. When she shows up on his doorstep terrified for her life, he has no choice but to keep her safe. Undeniable sparks fly when they’re forced to share a roof but unless he can keep her alive, their relationship might not have a chance to even start.
Story 2: Better Late Than Never (bonus short story)
For the past year Randall Phillips has kept his distance from sexy Lindsay Taylor. When she’s in a car accident, everything is put into perspective and he throws all his rules out the window. They share a heated kiss but for the weeks she’s on temporary leave she ignores his calls. Now that it’s her first day back at work, he plans to convince her they’re meant to be together. When he finally gets her alone he shows her all the physical pleasures she’s been missing out on. Can he convince her he’s playing for keeps?
Review: Tempting Trouble is a quick read with a fun heroine and a sexy leading alpha. I really enjoyed Tempting Trouble. I connected to the characters almost immediately. The attraction between Madison and Rafe was a pretty quick build, but Stuart does a good job at building the relationship between the two characters. While I definitely enjoyed the erotic scenes between the characters, I do wish more time would've been spent on the suspense and danger that Madison found herself in, and the actual chase between Rafe and Madison. I loved seeing them together, but I felt like the two characters gave in far too quickly considering they've known each other so long. I was honestly expecting there to be more of an internal struggle between them.
Overall, I immensely enjoy the novella, I just couldn't get into it the short story that came along with Madison & Rafe's story.
Rating: 3.5/5 DIAMONDS
