Wow! I was given this book by the author for an honest review. And I honestly LOVE LOVE LOVED it. It was cute, sexy, heart pounding, sad, emotional. It was a great story, with believable characters. Real life situation, and a true ending. The ONLY downside to this was it wasn't long enough. I didn't want it to end. I wanted more. Another slam dunk for Lisa Carlisle.

Enjoyable Read!
Great book by Lisa Carlisle. Antonio returns home from Afghanistan and is ready to start a new life.

I loved this book but who doesn't love a Marine. Gotta say A Marine in anything is awesome. Gotta read this because it is riveting and you won't be able to quit once you start....

Temptation Returns is the first novella in the Recalled to Love series, and we meet Antonio and Lina. This couple were together, but when Antonio joined the military he pushed Lina away as he didn't think it was right to keep her waiting for him. Lina eventually got over him, and found someone new. Unfortunately, Brad was 'safe' and there were no real sparks or passion between them. A couple of weeks before the wedding, and Antonio is back in town and sees Lina in a nightclub. The passion betwee ...more

Antonio, a SEAL, returns from Afghanistan after his service is done.  He's ready to begin his new life, with one caveat. He's never stopped loving his one and only true love, Lina.  He broke up with her not wanting her to worry about him in the service. 

At the local carnival, a tarot card reader reads his cards for him.  He doesn't believe her until he receives a ticket in the mail for a club just as she said he would. He goes to the club and finds Lina there.  Seeing her again brings up old mem

Copy provided by the author in return for an honest review.

If you're looking for a quick, easy and thoroughly enjoyable read then this book is definitely for you. Add in the delights of an ex marine reconnecting with the love of his life then you will see why the story captured my attention. As soon as I see a synopsis about a book involving a military alpha I prick my each ears up and this certainly didn't disappoint.

Antonio Moretti has just returned from Afghanistan and having finis

I was given an ARC by the author for an honest review.


I love the way Lisa writes and though i do not have that sense of graditute over the marines and soldiers that people abroad have,(its something here in Greece we lack of), beta reading and hanging out with all the authors and fellow reviewers have made me grow fond of anything military related and come to realise why there is such big feelings and sense of graditute over those people that have been in that place.

What i love most in those kin

Synopsis: "Antonio returns from the Marine Corps to begin a new life as a civilian. While visiting Cape Cod, he meets a strange woman who reads his Tarot cards. He doesn't believe in such nonsense; after all, he's a Marine. When he returns to Boston, he receives a ticket to a rock club where he runs into the one woman he never forgot.

Lina can’t believe Antonio is back in town, right before her wedding. Being around him again resurrects long-buried feelings. Will she be able to resist temptation

My Rating:

4.5

Favorite Quotes:

“She was a woman in the twenty-first century with a degree. She didn’t need a damn man to mess with her head.”

“When she saw Antonio wearing a black suit, leaning over a guardrail looking out to the harbor, heated sensations fluttered through her, like fireflies lighting her up as they flew through her body.”

My Review:

A well-written, quick, entertaining, and satisfying read. Sometimes picking up a novella is just what I need to cleanse my brain between reading heavier

I love the respect the author gives to the military right off the top. Antonio is ready to move on with his life, or so he thinks, having recently been discharged. On a whim or call it divine intervention, he runs into a gypsy at a carnival and she reads his cards. True to form our hero says" Ma'am, Im a Marine, we don't believe in tarot readings. But he allows her his time, and discovers he will get something in the mail :)Fate can't be denied, and she may even have plans for these two. Can the ...more

This is a great short read that I loved! It's about an sexy strong Marine, Antonio, who is in love with Lena! But when he's called to duty he breaks up with her to try to give her a happy life so that she's not worrying about him. But when he comes home a few years later and sees her things haven't changed much! Can they jump back into a relationship, has she moved on or can he be the man she needs? A great read!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I absolutely love this book. Lisa shows how a soldier comes back and reconnects with his soul mate. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to reading more of the authors work.
