I'm so gosh darn happy that I this book was finally released. I read book one in March of 2009, book 2, in August of 2009 and have been left totally hanging until now. I just about gave up hope on book 3 becoming a reality. These book's must be read in order since it is a continuing story so you see this book was very important to me because I absolutely LOVED book on

A quick read with lots of action and good steamy parts. I was so happy to see Lexi get her HEA with Nick AND see Bacchmann get what was coming to him!

Awesome addition to the Lexi Steele series. This booked covered it all. Hot and sexy scenes, action from beginning to the end, bad people posing as good and government twists throughout. I highly recommend.

Third in the Lexi Steele romantic suspense series revolving around Lexi Steele, a guilt-ridden Special Agent in Boston.

My Take
I had been looking forward to reading this, but it didn't take long before I just wanted to gag. It started with that too-easy dramatic bit and how annoying Lexi was with her overweening guilt about the men she killed as a sniper. Oh, woe, I don't deserve to be happy..., but McCray simply didn't want to work on this story, evident with every additional lame cliché from th

4 1/2 stars.
The Temptation” by Cheyenne McCray is the exciting and sensual long-awaited sequel to the Lexi Steele series begun with “The First Sin” and continued with “The Second Betrayal”. The charismatic couple of Lexi Steele and Nick Donovan are reunited just as Lexi’s life is being threatened and the roller-coaster ride of danger and suspense takes off even as the two struggle with their intimacy issues. The passionate interludes combined with the tension that ratchets up as they get closer

I enjoyed this series a lot and was saddened to reach the last book. I was hoping to read more of Lexi and his sexy brothers especially the new RED agent Ryan. But is it me or did anyone realized that Georgina seems to be missing the action of actually rescuing Rori? She's part of the group that planned the rescue right? And she's the one who discovered that their boss Carter is involved. But how come she did not participate in the actual rescue? She's even missing during Lexi's wedding, to thin ...more

Even though Nick and Lexi were the main characters of the book, the shining star of this installment had to be Rory, Steele's sister. That girl went from a mouse to a lioness in two seconds flat. Way to go!

I liked the brief moments when Ryan, Lexi's brother, and Georgina were near each other. There was a noticeable connection between them so I'm hoping Cheyenne writes their story next. I'm dying to know why Georgina's eyes were so haunted after she delivered vital intel to the team. Yup, there'

Well this was an utter disappointment. After anxiously waiting to see what happened to Lexi and Nick after the conclusion of the second novel, I could not wait to get my hands on this one. Yet everything felt rushed and weak; I found myself not carrying at all about the characters that I had been so fond of in earlier books, and just trying to reach the end without any enjoyment, just so I could say I finished the series.
Abby Fick
I'm assuming this is the conclusion to the series. I'm disappointed in that I really liked these characters, and the story felt short and rushed. Seemed like McCray was trying to tie everything up so she doesn't have to revisit this series and can concentrate on her other projects. Which is fine, and I will read her other stuff but I felt Lexi Steele deserved a little bit better.

What a fantastic ending to the Lexi Steele series!!! I really loved Lexi and Nick. So happy they got the HEA! I am a huge fan of romance suspense. This series definitely had dark edge to it but I loved every minute of it. It was intense from page one until the end. Loved all 3 books!!
