2.5 So much drama!!!

About 70% of this book was boring, so, of course, I ended up skimming a lot.
And the action was stalled. Probably trying to create a chemistry between the characters but well, it didn't really work out.

There were some stuff I enjoyed, I admit. It was a pretty steamy novel and it had its fun moments.
If you like this kind of stuff, it's worth a try. You shouldn't have extremely high hopes for it, but it's really skimmable (is that a word?) (nothing really happens for about 75% o

Temptation is the first book in the Club X series. Club X is a club where you can go to have a drink and dance, but you can also go there if you want to have your sexual fantasies made come true. The club has three owners: Cash, Stefan and Kane. Cash and Stefan are brothers, and Kane is their half-brother. This book is about Cash. Cash does the general managing of the club.

Olivia desperately needs a new job, because she doesn’t have much money anymore. She wants to be Cash’s new assistant and sh

Good start to a new series ***3.5 STARS***

First off I received an ARC copy of Temptation (Club X Book 1) in exchange for a honest .

I love KM Scott and her wonderful writing ability. The Heart of Stone series of Tristan and Nina is/was, in baseball terms, a grand slam and I think that is going to be hard to top and may always be used as a base for comparing future works no matter the genre.
I do understand that Temptation (Club X - Book 1) is a new starting point / beginning for this mild (sof

Oh. I had such hope. First half of the book was a solid 4 stars. Last half was painful to read. Every single cliche you could think of - check!

Words can’t even begin to express just how PHENOMENAL Temptation Club X1 is!! K.M. Scott has hit this one out of the ballpark yet again and she definitely has me chomping at the bit to get to know and spend time with the rest of the Club X brothers.

Cassian and Olivia’s story touched and affected me to the core. The emotion and chemistry between these characters were extremely palpable. The angst, the build-up and anticipation between these two, made their story even much more intriguing and defi

I just couldn’t feel the connection between these two. I probably gave up too soon, but i just wasn’t feeling it. I have read similar storyline’s and I just was not in the mood to continue with this. It was just starting to heat up too! Oh well, better luck next time.

I was so excited to get my hands on this book. I am a huge fan of K.M. Scott's work. I feel in love with her writing while reading the Heart of Stone series and this book did not let me down. It had all the elements that I love in a book, realistic characters, interesting plot, hot and steamy sex and a little mystery.

The book is told in a dual POV, which at times doesn't work but here it did. It starts with Olivia, going in for a job interview with the owners of Club X. This is where she meets t

First book in a new series, three sexy brothers Cash, Stefan and Kane joint owners of Club X where all your fantasies can come true, for a price. Cash is responsible for the business side of things, he needs a new personal assistant. Olivia college graduate and all round good girl gets the job. She's attracted to Cash but he's way out of her league or so she thinks. In actual fact he might be out of hers.

I really liked this story, it's well written. The c

I really need to stop getting my hopes up when it comes to freebies. I thought this book would be right up my alley. The whole hot and rich alpha and the slightly innocent woman (Yeah i know cliche, but i love it) and yet i was disappointed. Sure Olivia was a bit shy and innocent, but i didn't like her personality. As for Cassian? Just no. I didn't like him at all. He came across as pathetic in my opinion. The plot was boring and dragged. The sex almost caused me to fall asleep. So yeah. No go f ...more

I found this book to be really enjoyable. It had romance, drama/angst and a few WTF moments. I liked Cash and Olivia together and thought they had some great chemistry. My only complaint was the pacing of the story. It was fine until I got to the last few chapters. It felt like the end was really rushed. But, other than that, I did enjoy it and look forward to reading the other brothers stories when they come out.

Not so great writing and a pretty weak story. Not sure why this book was so high on the Kindle bestselling list, but it was only $1.99. I feel no desire to continue reading the series.

Temptation by K M Scott was an awesome read. I have read her Heart Of Stone Trilogy and so I knew it was going to be good and she did not disappoint me! This book is the first of a trilogy, and it was a great start! There is a lot of emotional angst in this book, as well as a few twists and turns to the plot I really did not see coming. Ms Scott's writing style is really impeccable, and it makes it a pleasure to read her books. I have read everything by her, and I know no matter how many books s ...more

It wasn’t awful.
Ok, I am going to do my best on my review. But I just don't think I could ever do justice to how amazing Temptation really is. I loved this book so much and it kinda sucks. Because here I am trying to find myself leaving a good enough review to match how great Temptation really was. But I know I could never do it justice, so I am just going to try.

Okay, so three brothers own and run a completely illegal club in Florida. Downstairs and the next couple floors up are perfectly normal: dance floor, alcohol, a party every night of the week. But on the top floor, that's where all the real fun happens. That's where these brothers ensure the club's members' fantasies come to life. For some, that's a simple as a chat with an attractive partner. For others... well, a birthday party with a Roman orgy theme is mentioned in the book.

Cassian 'Cash' March is gorgeous, sexy and restrained. Olivia is honest and sweet, and pushes herself out of her comfort zone.

The story moved along quite well, however, I found that, mainly towards the end, the story skipped parts in the timeline that could have been detailed in and, hence, felt a bit rushed. I can't quite explain it but, by the time I finished the book, I just felt a little bit dissatisfied.

Olivia is supposed to be inhibited and comes across as being quite straight and serious

*Fans self* Oh my lord, extra panties are totally needed. All I want for Christmas is a March man. Olivia that girl may come off shy and timid but you get her pi**ed you're gonna know it, "you're an a**hole, you know that? You knew I liked you, and still you left me sitting there tonight and had your brother tell me you were showing up." Cash, there are no words to describe that hunk of a man, (except I think I just did), he gets my blood pumping in areas you do not want to know about ladies, "g ...more

I loved this book!!! Great start to what appears to be a promising and very sexy and hot series!!!!!! I loved Cassian aka Cash.....Olivia, I liked a lot just not loved her as much as him. Her character was not the best for me and certainly was not the worst but I think that with a few tweaks she could have been better for me to love but that's just my take on her, very good just not great. By the end of the book I did borderline love her, lol! I truly loved, loved, loved this couple by

Rating: 3.5

Review: The story is told from both P.O.V.s in first person. (I'm getting a lot of those.) I didn't fall in love with Cassian but I did fall in lust. (I did fall for Kane. Can't wait to read his book.) It wasn't as serious as some books have been but it wasn't totally uplifting either. Just another one of "Hey, You two. Yeah you! Just fuck each other already." But still I loved it. I

For a book that sounds as if it was going to be filled with kinky BDSM, and 50 Shades of Gray puke rip off - I was rather disappointed this book's sex is so vanilla. I expected a lot kinkier and varied sex than what this book delivers. Some good, very light submissive sex at the beginning of the courtship between the two main characters. Great characters that I could empathize with, and obviously set up for easy follow on stories with the romantic interests of the other brothers. Some light cock ...more

Kindle Freebie that’s seriously boring. Skipped a lot pages. Seemed like every page was the same thing over and over again.
Olivia was the self-conscious. good girl loaded with insecurities who always had her defensiveness walls up. She starts working at a sex club and gets involved with her boss Cash. Typical player who was constantly making comments or comparing Olivia to his ex Rachel.
Lost interest when he hooked up with that Trina chick the night before his first encounter with the Olivia.
