Tempted by Ava Harrison is now live!
Zero prospects. Check.
An eviction notice in hand. Check.
Life in shambles? Check. Check. Check.
Desperate to avoid living on my sister’s couch, I took a job in the one place I shouldn’t.
That’s where I first saw him.
Elusive bad boy.
Owner of the hottest club in the city.
And apparently my new boss.
Temptation comes in many forms.
For me, it’s the way he looks at me.
The way he feels.
He’s my addiction.
I know I should keep my distance.
I could lose everything–even myself.
But I can’t.
And neither can he.
Tempted’s blurb attracted my attention due to the h being a recovering addict. I’ve never read this storyline before and was eager to dive right in. Bailey turned to drugs due to the loss of her best friend and father as well as not having a good relationship with her mother. She’s now two years sober and her financial situation is not good. About to be convicted, she takes her sister’s fiance up on a waitressing job at a high end club in NYC.
In my opinion, her new job is scary as it’s not the place for an addict. There’s temptation all around. Who knew her biggest temptation would be Drew, the club owner, rather than a substance. In return, Drew has his own issues, maybe even more deep-seated than hers.
What I liked most about this story is the realness of Bailey’s character. I know firsthand of loving a family member with addiction problems and watching them struggle day-to-day is hard. I thought Ms. Harrison tackled a sensitive issue with the right emotions. Bailey did struggle yet she had a positive outlook and I felt like i was experiencing all the lows and highs with her.
Drew was a bit harder for me to connect to, but I loved his character. He definitely has a hero complex and I’m not at all surprised he was attracted to Bailey both physically and bc of her background. Unfortunately, they don’t learn from their past and part of their journey together is painful until they get their HEA.
I loved the ending so much! I’m totally looking forward to more books and I really hope Carter gets a book. He is my favorite side character. Also, can’t wait to read Harper’s book too.
Congratulations, Ms. Harrison, on a wonderful book!
