What happens when the siren becomes the tempted?

College student Tess Burke is on the verge of eviction. Her life changed when her dad was in a bad car accident. He’s been in the hospital for months and making little progress. Desperation is setting in. They’re about to lose everything.

Successful architect Chase Carlisle has made a name for himself among the rich and famous. His work keeps him busy, leaving little time for a social life. When an old family friend contacts him and asks him to care for his vibrant, sassy daughter, Chase feels obligated to take her in; Patrick Burke had helped him when he was a troubled teenager, heading down a path of destruction. If not for Pat, Chase would have never become the man he is today.

The wild child turns Chase’s world upside down, tempting him in ways he can’t resist. The sexy younger woman shows him what he’s been missing the past few years. Their attraction is obvious from the beginning despite Chase’s apprehension to getting involved with Pat’s daughter. Tess wears him down but gets caught in her own trap when she becomes the object of his deepest, darkest desires.

Warning: once you get started reading you WILL NOT want to put it down…

Tessa is in a bad place. Her dad is in the hospital recovering, she’s a full time student and she’s about to be evicted from her apartment. One person from her past, one she doesn’t even remember, can turn her entire world on its head.

Chase has known Tessa’s dad for a long time. The man once helped him out of a bad time in his life. When asked to take care of the man’s daughter, he doesn’t hesitate to pay back the debt he feels he owes. Chase seems to have it all… money, his own company, and his own house.

The sexual tension between the two escalates quickly. They are attracted to each other, although neither act on it right off the bat. Tessa decides she is going to for the man she wants and she holds nothing back. She flirts, teases, and even tries to make him jealous. Little does she know, it’s working…

I really liked the fact that these characters seemed real to me. They were scared of their feelings and what others will think. It showed that once you set your eyes on a target – and go after what you want – things are not always perfect. Life is not all rainbows and butterflies and bad things happen, but we can overcome them and still get our happily ever after.

The characters have to learn to meld their lives together in a way that works for them. I loved how they grew with each other and decided that, even though they grew up differently, they liked each other enough to compromise. They were easy to relate to with their journey and struggles. Even if there are some parts that most of us will never face, they stayed true to themselves and did what they needed to do to get back to each other.

Ella Jade has been writing for as long as she can remember. As a child, she often had a notebook and pen with her, and now as an adult, the laptop is never far. The plots and dialogue have always played out in her head, but she never knew what to do with them. That all changed when she discovered the eBook industry. She started penning novels at a rapid pace and now she can't be stopped.
Ella resides in New Jersey with her husband and two young boys. When she's not chasing after her kids, she's busy writing, attending PTO meetings, kickboxing, and scrapbooking. She hopes you'll get lost in her words.
