‘Tempt Me’ is a story about Rocki Monroe, young widow, designer of lingerie and owner of a lingerie shop. It has been five years since she lost her police officer husband and during all that time she’s never met a man who could interest her. That changes when Cole Stanton walks into her shop with his rather nasty fiancée Mara. One look at this man has Rocki unsettled, but he is not a free man and therefore out-of-bounds.
Cole Stanton knows his relationship with Mara is not what it used to be and

BOUND TEMPTATIONS is an enjoyable read, it's hot, sexy, emotional and relatively dirty on some parts. I like the abuse survivors angle of the stories because a lot of women go through this in one form or the other. It might be fanciful but every story resonate with us differently and hopefully this will give hope to those who have come from a similar background. This book is a good way to test drive Shiloh Walker's writing style if you haven't read any of her works yet, l

She’s a temptation he can’t resist…

Roxanne ‘Rocki’ Monroe’s life is full of secrets and hidden heartaches. Cole Stanton would love to heal her pain and chase away the ghosts of her past, but she’s just a complication he doesn’t have room for in his life.

Or so he thinks.

It doesn’t take Cole long to realize he’s more than willing to let temptation get the best of him, more than happy to deal with complications if that’s what it takes to get her.

What he has and what he needs
The Bound Temptations anthology contains two novellas (Tempt Me and Beg Me) by Shiloh Walker that have both been previously released as ebooks. I'm going to talk about each of these stories individually in this review. Overall though I'd have to say that I liked the anthology but I didn't enjoy it as much as I expected to. I quite liked Tempt Me but I'm afraid I wasn't a big fan of Beg Me.

Tempt Me - 3/5 Stars

My Review: TEMPT ME
Rating: A-
This is just one of those books that has a little bit of everything. Five years ago, Rocki's cop husband was shot in the line of duty. After lingering, he died and his absence has broken her heart. She's open to loving again, but has never even been tempted until she meets Cole. Instantly she feels an attraction to him....a connection, but Cole is engaged.

Rocki owns a lingerie shop and is a corset designer. She's passionate about making women of all shapes and sizes

Bound Temptations is an anthology made up of two previously published books by this author, Tempt Me and Beg Me. Both books deal with widows, but that's the extent of the similarities.

Tempt Me:

The better of the two, Tempt Me deals with Roxette "Rocki" Monroe, a corset designer and owner of a lingerie shop, and Cole Stanton, a lawyer. Their attraction is immediate upon first meeting. Cole unfortunately is engaged, and his fiancee is actually opening her o

Review bound temptations and beg for it.

To start, I have to say that when you write stories or a story of women that were stalked, attacked or walk a very fine line and you have to be sure you don't offend the reader. I think Ms. Walker did a good job of walking that fine line.

There are two stories within this book and both I enjoyed, but the second story I was in the fence with and I'll tell you why shortly. So....both stories have the same base, where both of the female leads have

“Tempt Me”
A quick read with a heroine that is sassy, intelligent, values herself and knows her worth. She is also secured in her looks and body. Loved that Shiloh wrote a heroine that is healthy and full figured. The book/story addressed the issue with society’s messed up view of what is beautiful and sexy. The truth is healthy is beautiful and everyone is different. Some of us have curves and are busty and that is sexy too!

This story isn’t just about the looks of the individual. It’s a romance

So this is a newly released anthology that contains previously released stories by Shiloh Walker.

The first story is Tempt Me and the characters are Rocki and Cole. This was a definite favorite of mine! Rocki is the owner of the lingerie shop Lush and is also a well known designer of corsets and other lingerie for her shop and others in the area. Cole is the D.A who is currently engaged to a bitch of a woman (Mara) and when they both stop into Lush he can't keep his eyes off Rocki. Cole and Mara

Wow. I have one thing to say about them both, and that is the writing is just freaking fabulous! After reading these two I have a sneaky suspicion I'd love to read pretty much everything by the same author. Spunky characters, charismatic, intriguing, very clear personalities, healthy sense of humor, clear and vibrant imagery in all scenes of any nature, beautiful flow of the plot.
All around fabulous writing, as far as I'm concerned! So, let's talk about them separately for a bit.

I've always been curious about Shiloh's work. When I started this blog I had bought The Missing but I never ended up reading it. I was surprised to see that Bound Temptations was a bind-up of two of Shiloh's books: Tempt Me and Beg Me.

Tempt Me starts off with Rocki, she owns this amazing shop where she makes and sells corsets. I don't know where I stand with corsets, I think they're amazing pieces of clothing but maybe I'm a little teeny bit bitter because I don't have the boobs to actually wear

Tempt Me

Ms. Walker never fails to move the heart with her characters. There are two stories in this book. The first one is Tempt Me which is the more sensual of the two. Beg me is a bit edgier with some dubious consensual elements. Tempt me is four stars. Beg me is three stars which gives this book an average of 3.5 stars.

In Tempt Me, readers meet and fall in love with Lush. She's strong, admirable and so sexy. The sensual lingerie store she opened was great and inspires one to find a place that

What I didn't realize when I started this book is that it was actually two books bound together. So, I began the first story. There was an intriguing setup involving a mysterious stalker. A heroine I could like, between her curvy figure and her confident manner and business sense. A hero with a really terrible fiancee, so terrible that the fact he chose her in the first place kind of made you wonder about him. I was also expecting an element of BDSM, based on the title, so perhaps its notable ab ...more

Review; I loved this short story. The ending came too soon for me though. I feel it should have been longer, but maybe that was just me enjoying the story so much. Who knows?
The characters for me were realistic. The romance was a bit too fast, but I could still believe it. The story was short, and there were only so many weeks within the story, but I still felt that enough happened. A lot happene

This book has two stories about widows in it. I loved one and hated one.
I loved this one. It was fantastic! Rocki is a big girl who lost her husband and rebuilt her life. She runs her own lingerie store and designs specialty corsets. When she first meets the handsome Cole he is in her shop with his fiancé. There is instant attraction but he is taken and so off limits.
I loved this story because of Rocki. She has overcome adversity. She has a sense of humor and an unconquerable sense of

Bound Temptations by Shiloh Walker contains two novellas previously released, TEMPT ME and BEG ME. Both are erotic romances and while they don’t contain the same characters, or even the same world, they work well together in this print copy.

With Tempt Me, which I rather liked, I had one big problem: why did Cole fall for Rocki? They see each other and BAM, insta-connection. And Cole is engaged to another person, so to me it felt really awkward for him to break his engagement and start falling i

4 out of 5
Out of the two, this one was my least favorite. The thing that really stood out about this story were the characters. Though the only one that was well-developed was Rocki, I enjoyed all of them. Her love interest, Cole, was a sexy, take control alpha male. My perfect guy. Normally, I despise the "villainy" characters. In fact, in almost every book I read, I find myself rooting for an untimely demise. That was not the case wi

So I have to state that this review is only for the first book Tempt Me that I read... the second one in here just wasn't for me, so I didn't continue it.

In Tempt Me, Rocki is the owner of Lush Lingerie Shop. The loss of her husband and a stalker play prominently in the plot of this novella as does Cole. Cole, when we first meet him is engaged to ... well there is no nice way to say it. She's a bitch. Mara and Cole attend a benefit that is being held at Lush where Mara hopes to run into a speci

I had a difficult time with this book.

Actually, that’s not entirely true. I didn’t enjoy this book at all. I can only comment on Tempt Me in this compilation, as I didn’t read it. I did read Beg Me, however. And it left a bad taste in my mouth.

The plot was beyond ridiculous. And not to mention how disturbing it was. I don’t mind BDSM. It’s not my favorite, but if it’s written well, and I like the story, I can get on board. But Beg Me was simply terrible.

I’m certain that others will disagree, a

This two little stories succeed in walking the fine line between a too much overstuffed story that could have been a better stand alone novel, and long enough. I say that because I found short stories, most of the times, too full of things to really appreciate them and too rushed. So Ms. Walker surprise me with her ability to describe and to develop a short story with the right length and the right "number" of things inside.

I didn't know this was two separate short stories (my fault, I didn't read the blurb) and was really enjoying the first. I was so disappointed that it cut off when I was completely sucked in! I probably would have liked the second story better had I been expecting it and not mad about the first one ending.
