“Although they move along pretty quick, Rocki and Cole have great chemistry, and of course all the lingerie makes this a fun story!” ~ Under the Covers
Rocki is a lingerie store owner. She designs corsets, she has a success business, she owns her sexuality and has a ton of personality and confidence. She’s also been living a life without the love of a man since her husband, a cop, was killed in the line of duty 5 years ago.
I’m a fan of the strong, independent heroines, and Rocki has that in spades. She’s faced some ugly things in her past and pushed through. She was happy with the man of her dreams until life had other plans and dealt her another tough hand. But she emerged from that even stronger. She built her career from that, she gives back to the community. Definitely a great example of a woman. And one you want to see get an HEA and a break.
Cole on the other hand I didn’t think we got to know too well. He’s sweet and caring, and then he has a whole new authoritative side of him later on in the story. I just had issues with how his previous relationship was ending so easily after one quick realization and then jumping right into a new one head first. Time would’ve been of the essence here for me.
TEMPT ME is a bit of an insta-lust story. And while that is probably just fine for a short novella like this, I usually want more page count to get me to the feelings side of things. That’s just a me thing, I guess. I wish this would’ve been longer to give them both the time to get there in my mind. Especially him. Although they move along pretty quick, Rocki and Cole have great chemistry, and of course all the lingerie makes this a fun story!
