Shakara Jones has done what she had to, be it stripping or working at a restaurant in skimpy clothes and for the most part, has managed to stay strong throughout whatever life threw at her. That is other than her messed up attraction to Cade, her best friend’s much older brother. She can see him judging her as not fit to be the friend of his sister, Julie. But instead of making her angry, this has helped to fuel an attraction she cannot control.
Cade Parker is successful at business and at taking care of his little sister, Julie. He has maintained a place in society for them and walks a fine line of propriety to keep them in it. But he has not been able to deny his burning need for Shakara. He keeps telling himself she is too young, too wild, too questionable in her life choices for a man like him…
But chemistry has other plans. He needs her, and when he finally gives into his body’s raging demands and finds Shakara as innocent as she is beautiful, will he manage to treasure the gift she has shared with him? Or will his strict notions of proper behavior make him lose the one woman he hasn’t been able to forget?
Temptation goes up against willpower in this erotic short story. From the lush curves of an innocent tempting a strict suit, this playful romp has the recipe for lust tempered with the dynamics of reality crashing down in an emotional storm. I felt that portions of this plot dragged a little and the lead male was frustratingly arrogant, but these might not sway every reader from this delicious little tale of passion.
