What happens when the boy you've wanted your whole life finally wants you back?
I'm used to taking what I want, being the best at what I do. During the day, I make big bucks as New York's premiere consultant. At night, I can get any girl I lay my eyes on. I thought this life was what I wanted: working hard and playing harder--with penthouse apartments, luxury cars and bottle service every weekend. After six years in the city, I know I've been living like a monster for too long. I need to get my act together. I need to find something real. I need to come home.
LA means family and a fresh start. My parents and my friends who are close enough to be siblings.
And Melina.
Melina is nerdy smart, with a challenging sense of humor and legs for miles. It's so hard to describe her...enigmatically beautiful. I’m sure there’s a word for it in French. But I know there's a naughty girl hiding behind that shy smile that I'm dying to drag out.
There was always something between us. I never forgot her laugh, never could get her off my mind. Nobody ever seemed to notice how my body would react when I was near Melina, how much more focused I became—maybe not even Melina herself. But this time it’s different.
The more time we spend together, the more I wonder if there was something there all along. After so long in the fast lane, I don't know if I can handle settling down. But seeing Melina's passion, I'm tempted beyond belief.
I have to admit it: temptation is hard to resist.


I go dizzy, feeling so faint I need to close my eyes for a minute before I can do anything but bask. Wyatt strokes my hair slowly, the rough-but-cool touch of his hands bringing me back to life, and when I open my eyes I see him lying there beside me.
Suddenly the haze clears and I feel my stomach sink like a stone. The full magnitude of what just happened forming like a beast on the horizon.
“Oh god…I can’t believe we just…” I mumble.
“Yeah…” Wyatt replies with a lazy grin. “We did.”
The anxiety comes fast, flooding into that empty space left by orgasm.
Wyatt. My childhood crush. A friend I share with our families, our entire group. My new, albeit temporary, boss. As amazing as it felt in the moment, the myriad ways in which this was a horrible idea come out from wherever they were hiding an hour ago.

How could I be so reckless?
And how the hell are we going to keep this a secret?

I think I'll mark this one down as my favorite book from J.D. Hawkins yet! Temptation was an entertaining and sexy friends-to-lovers story with likeable characters and heartwarming romance. Wyatt left the glitz and the glamour of New York to return home to L.A. in order to find the spark that was missing in his life. He instantly found it in Melina, his childhood friend. Never in a million years did Melina think that the man she crushed on for her whole life would return her affections. However, when he became her new boss, it gave them the chance to reconnect, to relearn each other, and to discover that everything that was good and right could be found in the other.

J.D. Hawkins has a knack for writing stories that I can't find much wrong with. The characters are realistic, the dynamic between them is all too normal, and the chemistry is always sizzling hot. I will say that this particular book felt different from its predecessors. Like Lays Wavy chips rather than Lays Original. Still just as good, only different.
