Publisher's Note: Eternal Temptations is volume six in The Tempted Series but it may be read and enjoyed as a standalone mafia-MC romance. This book has been revised and edited as of January 2021.
Janine Infante Bosco lives in New York City, she has always loved reading and writing. When she was thirteen, she began to write her own stories and her passion for writing took off as the years went on. At eighteen, she even wrote a full screenplay with dreams of one day becoming a member of the Screen Actors Guild.
Janine writes emotionally charged novels with an emphasis on family bonds, strong willed female characters, and alpha male men who will do anything for the women they love. She loves to interact with fans and fellow avid romance readers like herself.
She is proud of her success as an author and the friendships she's made in the book community but her greatest accomplishment to date would be her two sons Joseph and Paul.
This series has had me feeling many things from sorrow to elation and now, I feel as though as I’m mourning a member of my own family. I have loved the men and women of the Tempted Series through all of their troubles and Eternal Temptations was the perfect, bittersweet goodbye because I got to see them one final time.
This book was just… ugh. It’s hard to even put into words. It seems as though Bosco has taken every single emotion I had throughout this series, genetically mutated it, gave it steroids and then dumped it all out onto the pages of this book. I was crying and laughing and raging and screaming and I adored every single second.
Honestly, I didn’t even want to write this review. It only means that this wonderful journey that left me so affected is finally over. I could go on about Bosco’s brilliant writing, flow and pacing. I could tell you all how beautiful she makes a romance. I could tell you about the suspense and action. But the only thing that is really important is that you need to read this entire series and then read this wonderful, perfect ending to a fantastic series.

This was like an extended epilogue as we get the POV of all the characters of the series, including Vic and Grace Pastor
Vic is dying The mob continues with his nephew showing up to run things I didn't like that Anthony sounded like he missed his mob days It's so unfortunate that Riggs and Lauren's story was a buss for me, he was my favourite character here Pike's wife dies The retaliation of their enemies always endangers the families. I'm not a fan of that as I'd like these guys to just pack it in. I thought in mc business old ladies and kids were off limits? I admit to judging everybody for not leaving (which would basically end the books 😂but still) This leads to the start of the next series with the nomads who've recently joined the club and my reason for reading this series in the first place
*** This series and the Nomads series are interconnected and I wouldn't advise these books as standalones. I had to pause book 1 in the other series and read these just to understand what was happening
This book will consume you! I am utterly speechless at how outstanding this final book was. Tears are shed happy and sad, last hits are done, last rides are done, torn families come together, moments that will stay with me forever, characters that will stay with me forever. Janine poured every bit of heart and soul in this book. I will miss these characters deeply. I loved being reunited with my faves Anthony, Riggs and Blackie. Each character has a chapter throughout the book and you get a insight into their minds, it flows perfect and smoothly. This series was amazing and its one of my TOP faves and this final book was captivating and will leave you breathless. I'll miss these characters so much, I feel like I know them! I'll miss Mikey and his Princess, I'll miss Anthony and his Reese's, I'll miss Bulldog and his Reina, I'll really miss Riggs and his Kitten, I'll miss Blackie and his Lace and I can't forget Victor and Grace. I am forever tempted! (If I ever meet Janine I'll hug her so hard and thank her for giving me this fan-ducking-tactic series!!!)
DELICIOUS, AGGRAVATING , SWEET, RAW, ROUGH, SEXY, ANGRY....This book has many different facets, and characters that I love immensely. I fell in love with these characters and stayed in love with them to the end , after i cried, screamed , swore at this book!!!!! Action packed, heart wrenching at time, and heartwarming at others. I FRICKIN LOVE THIS BOOK. I went to bed with this book on my mind, and woke up thinking about it. EXCELLENT!!!!

I have been suffering from a book hangover for the past two days since I finished reading Eternal Temptations.
In a world where the mob and the MC come together to keep their enemies at bay, you would never expect for this story to come as far as it has.
I feel as if I've had front row seats on this crazy, wild ride with every single character that embodies, shaped and created the Tempted Series.
Every single character has a quality and a story about that puts you through a mental and emotional rollercoaster ride. I've laughed, I've cried, I've shuddered, I've tsked. I've been annoyed (yet always with redemption), I've been angered. I've wanted to dish out hugs & throw a few punches.
I have never regretted a single feeling or emotion that's been delivered.
Eternal Temptations gave us the good and the bad. We see our couples try to live a normal life, but we all know that is just not in their blood. Promises of forever, declarations of undying love, times to say goodbye & hello... I mean, this story encompassed it all. I am so happy with the way it all rolled out.
I was sad to see someone go (can't say who), but as they say, this too shall pass.
I am looking forward to ALL that is to follow. But while new beginnings will be made, I will never, ever forget my Tempted Series crew. I'm pretty sure I'll be seeing a few of the pop up in the next stories from time to time...
Thank you again, Janine, for creating these characters that I just can't help falling head over heels for....Keep 'em coming!!

I have loved every book in this series, and this one is my absolute favorite! From the first chapter, I was so consumed by this book that I could not put it down. I stayed up reading into the wee hours of the morning because I just had to know how it ended, and now, even hours later, I am suffering from a major book hangover! In my opinion, this final book in the Tempted series, is a gift from the author allowing her readers to reconnect with some of their favorite characters from the previous books and get a glimpse at how their lives are going. I know that I loved reading more about Jack aka "Bulldog", Blackie, and my all time favorite, Riggs!
Through her words, this author took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. There were tears shed -some happy and some sad. There were moments of laughter and moments of frustration where I found myself shouting at my kindle and having to resist the urge to throw it up against the wall, and, of course, there were moments filled with action and suspense. In fact, there were so many facets to this book that I just can't list them all. It is obvious that this author put her heart and soul into writing the final book of this series!
If you haven't read the books in the Tempted series, you need to one click them now. While each book can be read as a standalone, this is just one of those series you don't want to miss out on! Awesome job, Janine Infante Bosco!!
Where do I begin? Eternal Temptations totally blew me away. A book where every character comes together and their paths are revealed.
You don’t have to read the series to read Eternal Temptations. Janine Infante Bosco gives you a glimpse into the lives of every single character and how they got to where they are. It is truly fabulous.
Janine’s writing style is extraordinary. The way she adds emphasis behind every little line is something I adored. It strikes you right in the heart leaving you aching for more and totally connecting to each character.
Totally loved it.
The flow of the story, the characters and all their connections and how they all intertwine with one another is perfect. The story was flawless, the flow and pace was brilliant and the plot twists kept coming. It left me on the edge of my seat, biting my nails wanting to read faster and faster to find out what happens.
I’ve told Ms Infante Bosco many times that I think she was a biker or mob boss in her previous life. She truly brings these characters to life in this series.
This story has everything. It made me laugh, made me cry, it made me cringe and it made me bite my nails. It made me feel every emotion that these characters were going through. It’s gritty, raw, rough, sexy, emotional, and full of the unexpected.
Congratulations Ms Infante Bosco on an extraordinary ending to an awesome series. This is one that will stick with me for a long time.
Eternal Temptations by Janine Infante Bosco is a beautifully layered last hit & final ride for the tempted characters. Each book in the series has been written with the ability to be read as a standalone though Eternal really should be enjoyed after getting to know all the amazing characters Janine has brought to life. It is really hard to describe this novel without giving anything away but I will say this story blew my mind with how it weaved 12 characters stories together and brought us closure on some of our favorites and growth with others couples. I laughed, I cried (a lot) & needed a cold shower after a ton of scenes. Janine has a way of putting the reading right in the action and pull the rug right out of underneath us and we don't even see it coming. I'm really sad to see this series end but this was exactly what I wanted in a finale and like a fine wine I savored every word. 5 Massive Stars for Eternal Temptations!

Three times I cried. Bones. Nikki. Victor. Those moments made me love this book so much. Janine Infante Bosco wrote an ending to the series in the best way!
I loved that we got chapters from every character in this one. I loved reading the point of views from everyone so much. The author pulls you in with her words and makes you feel apart of the lives of the Pastore family and the Satan's Knights MC. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time reading this not knowing where Janine was going to take me next. She gives us a new plot with happy endings and then others are not happy. So much happens in this book that it couldn't of been written any other way. She sucks you in. I can't lie about this.
I started book one the end of June and continued to read them continuously. I'm sad to see this series end but it's one that I will always remember and will always be one of my favorites. I can't wait to see what is coming next by Janine because she now will always be an author that I'll read no matter what.
INCREDIBLE!!! The Last Hit! The Final Ride! Janine brings all of our favorite characters back one more time. I love how every chapter is a different character's POV. Each one flowing effortlessly into the next. I have laughed. I have cried. I have sobbed. I've wanted to throw my Kindle across the room. This book has brought out so many emotions. This has been an amazing series. I know Janine has poured her heart and soul into this one. It's reflected in each and every word she has written. These characters, these people come to life. You get to know them. You love them. You hate them. But they will forever be a part of you. Yea, Janine's that good! While this book can be read as a stand-alone, do yourself a favor and read all of the other books in this series. You don't want to miss a single thing. I'm sad to see this series end but I'm looking forward to reading what Janine has in store for us next.
“Eternal Temptations” is every mafia lovers dream come true! I couldn't help, but get lost in this modern day mafia savvy novel. Where loyalty, honor, magnetism and power is King! Throw in some yummy bikers in the mix and shit just got real! With a storyline exudes a lovely intensity and depth. That seems to flow throughout this crazy hectic journey! Holy Cow!!! I should have found this series earlier!

Did I like this book? No.....Did I love this book? Yes
What a book and one with a difference. This book was a mixture of Mafia and MC , both of which I really enjoy reading; different chapters were narrated by different characters from the story, not just the one or two, which I really enjoyed. Really enjoyable. Love, sex, blood was just a little of what this book contained. The story line was excellent , keeping me wanting more each chapter and the style of writing was easy to read. I don't want to say much about the story as I don't want to spoil the book for other readers. This author has become a favourite on my list and I'm looking forward to reading more from her.
What a final ride. Janine you really know how to draw your readers in the world of Temptations. It was the most emotionel book that I've read so fare. I had to stop many a times to get my emotions under control. I'm so glad that I took the journey with the men and women of the Tempted series and can't wait to see what else Janine has in store for us.

Eternal Temptations is the sixth and final book in the Tempted series by Janine Infante Bosco. It can be read as a standalone.
The men of the Pastore crime family and the Satan's Knights MC have been through a lot and think everything is going heir way for once. A new threat however is on the horizon. The men of the mob are resurrected and the boys in black are back. Five couples.. One threat. Who will survive the eternal temptation?
I was so excited to get my hands on this book and sad it was the last one. I've loved this series and have grown to love many of these couples. It's like sitting down with old friends and catching up with a side of violence. If you have a favorite couple I can guarantee they are in this book. If your a new reader to the series your going to close this book and immediately want to read the other five books to find out about everyone before this book. Janine Infante Bosco has created a world where you love members of a crime family and some pretty bad butt bikers. Eternal Temptations was a much more emotional book than I thought it would be for many reasons. It was the final ride, the last time I'd see some of these guys. I shed tears, cheered, my heart broke. I was all over the place.
It's an amazing book you do not want to miss. Fans of both MC and mob books will love this series. There is just no way there isn't something in this book for you. Janine Infante Bosco is an amazing author. One I will never miss a book she writes. She's done a fantastic job with the Tempted world and I can't wait to see what she does next. Just remember Blackie is mine!!!! Janine ever told me I could have him. Gotta love the book boyfriends.
I was provided with an arc in exchange for an honest review. I gave it 5 "eternal" stars.
It’s time for one final ride. And for you to ask yourself one last time… Are you tempted?
Hell yeah, I'm tempted! Are you? If you loved this series, believe me you're going to want to read it!
Now I will be the first to admit that when I heard there would be a sixth and final installment in this series, I was a tiny bit dubious. I knew Eternal Temptations would be nothing short of amazing but Lacey and Blackie's story was such a perfect fit for the end, I wasn't sure there was anymore room in my heart for more. On this occasion I was more than happy to be proven wrong. My heart swelled with more love for these characters than I could have imagined. This story was sensational from start to finish. The author has this uncanny ability to pull the readers in with her words and make them feel as though they are living every emotion these characters experience.
Each chapter is told from a different POV, sometimes two but these different POV help to build the story up until BOOM Janine throws you a loop, you do NOT see coming.
Yet another action packed, drama filled story that will have you reaching for the tissues before the end. It was sexy, passionate page turner that will keep you enthralled throughout!!
If you loved this series, then this is definitely worth picking up.
After reading all of the other books in the series, reading this one is kind of like packing family members up to move away, having to say good-bye. There have been a lot of gasps, sighs and tears while reading this series. I recommend that you start with the first book in this series and read them all. Each one is something different. Just when you think they can’t get any better this author threw another one out there to show that hell yeah they can get better. But you don’t have to read any of the others to love this one. Any one of them can be great if you just read one of them. This is one of the best developed series that I have read. The author gives just the right amount of everything you need to pull you in and make you not want to stop reading. She keeps them familiar yet they are all different. This is the final book in the series. This book comes with POVs from all of our favorite characters found in the first five books and a couple of new ones…not new characters, just one’s we haven’t heard too much from personally. I am a fan of MC romance as well as Mobster/Mafia romance books. This series of books has both. This book was a great end to the series. You know it was powerful when you are writing the review days after reading it and you still find tears in your eyes from thinking about it!
Its a bitter sweet to see the end of Janine Infante Bosco's Temptation Series. I'm sad to see any of her stories end, but then it makes me excited to see what she has in store for her readers! I've read every single book of hers, and I'll continue to be one of her top supporters!
I loved the way Eternal Temptations was written. I liked being able to get POV's from all the previous characters from the series in one book! It allows us to catch up on all of our favorite characters at once! After reading about all of them, I still can't pin point which couple is my favorite. At first I think it's Jack and Reina, but then I think about Anthony and Adrianna because they loved each other so fiercely that they fucking destroyed each other. Then there was also Riggs and Lauren, who definitely owned it! And of course, who can forget about Blackie and Lacey and how they were two imperfect people perfectly suited for one another."
Every couple had their "moments" that made me fall in love with them. I don't think there has been one book from Janine that I haven't loved. So Janine, I will continue to say...
The final ride left me in tears, but with a huge smile on my face! My love for this series is truly eternal! It was so amazing to be back in this world, with my favourite mobsters and those delicious bikers. Back with Blackie and Lacey, and of course Tiger and his Kitten! (My love for these two felines is truly endless, and eternal) It was amazing to see a glimpse of Victor and Grace's life.
It was amazing to see an end, with a new begining (YES! Give me my Striker baby, I knew I loved him, but after this book I want my broken soldier even more - also with that ending, I can't wait!)
Go read it now. Truly. If you like a good, addictive plot, action, sexiness and hottness level through the roof. With a bunch of wonderful, flawed and interesting characters You won't be dissapointed. Tho you can read it as a stand alone, read from the begining, because each story has its own value, and wonderful couple, that in the end will bring you joy!
Thank you Janine Infante Bosco for this amazing, and exciting ride, that I will definetly go back to, and re-read. And I can't wait for you to take me on another adventure!
I have loved every word of every book in this series. And book #6 Eternal Temptations did not disappoint. I loved this book; I just could not help loving this book. I felt like the Pastore family and the Satin’s Knights MC were not just characters in a book, but they were friends and family. Janine Infante Bosco has a way of writing that pulls you into the story line and makes you feel like you are a part of the fabulous but dangerous family. There were so many things that happened in this book I almost felt like I had whiplash going back and forth between the couples and characters and all of the action but it was need to finalize this series. I caught myself crying, laughing and yelling at my kindle with the emotions in this book. I was sad that this was the last book but I am so glad these characters will be part of the next series. I look forward to learning more about them. I highly recommend this book and series. You will want to read them in order to understand everything going on. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
When I started this book I was confused as to why each chapter was a different person’s point of view and why they shared so little about each characters back story and how they were connected. I then learned that this is the 6th book in a series and not a stand-alone. However, the book is very intriguing and keeps you on the end of your seat as to what is going to happen next. The story of Victor and Grace that is weaved throughout this story is one of true and everlasting love that I feel everyone hopes to have in their life. The memories that grace flashes back to throughout this book gives you a small glimpse of what it is like to be truly deeply loved and how heart-wrenching it can be to have to say goodbye to that person . So if you love mob stories, biker gangs, and true love always finding a way then you will love this book. Now I must go and read books 1-5 so I can really enjoy the journey of how they got to this book.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, I am so impressed with Janine Infante Bosco's growth from the first book of this series to this book. Once again, she managed to suck me into everything about this book. She writes with such depth, truth, and emotion that I can't help but love every single character and couple in this book (except for the enemies :P). So glad I found this series... I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. This series speaks the truth about the things we go through in life while making you fall in love with the characters that make up the story!
Hopefully we see more of these couples and the new faces very soon. I am so looking forward to the Nomad series and what Janine gives us next!
I received a copy of this book for my honest opinion and I have to say I have read the others before this one but OMG I Flove this book to me this is the best one I am a very emotional reader and this book brought out all of my emotions and I love this book from cover to cover Janine did not disappoint me at all with this book. I would love to thank her for giving me the opportunity to read and enjoy her writing and her books I will be reading more of her books. I gave this book five stars but I think it should have ten stars if you haven't read this series then you have missed out on some amazing books.
This was my favourite book of the series, we can see how much the author has progressed through all of her books.. This book has left me reeling, it made me laugh, it made me cry, I'm a mess! It's sweet, it's raw, it's original.. It's full of angst, heartache and love. I'm completely in a book funk, as this captivated me from the start, Grace and Victor kidnapped me until I had finished their story! The writing was brilliant, the plot line was phenomenal and the characters were my favourite! It hurts my heart that this is the last book... It just means I'll have to keep re reading them again and again! A worthy 5 stars, a must read!! #2OCCAB
I'm going to miss my alpha males and my take-no-shit girls, but what a way to end this series. I loved how we were able to catch a glimpse of everyone and see what they were up to. There were some stories that had me tearing up and screaming at my kindle, but the next had me laughing. Blackie and Lace are always going to hold a special spot in my heart and no one will replace that. The emotions were a roller coaster ride, and what can I say, Janine, I don't want this to end! You're just going to have to write more for me! ❤️
Not just another mob story, this book deals more with the fallout and impact on the family as The Boss get's a life sentence. We see the lives of loves and challenges faced by his daughters and the men they love as well as others bent on vengeance. But in the "family" isn't it all about loyalty. Not necessarily. Some spicy scenes and loads of chaos with a great story round out this book especially once the bikers show up the wrong one gets caught up. Great ending and worth a read.
Bah! Muthafrickin cliffhangers! What the hell am I supposed to read next? I'm going nuts not knowing the reading order. ....It can't be left like this or I'm going to go CRAZY! CRAZY I SAID! I don't expect a perfect HEA but this is like a Fuck-You-Ever-After.
With each end to a series we are given each and every emotion that we read throughout that series. Well, with Eternal Temptation you get those and more.
It was a perfect ending to this series. We got to see all of our favorite characters use their voices in this book. Each one had a very important part to play in the ending of this series. Not one beat was missed. Every page flowed from one to the next.
One last threat is thrown their way and as I said before each and every character played their parts well. You become involved in the fight because you have been on this journey with them. It is like watching a horror movie and you are biting your nails and yelling at them not to do it but you wanted them to because it needs to happen.
I cannot go into a lot of detail because even the slightest of hints would give a way what happens. You will just have to read this one and trust that you will be strapped in for one hell of a ride.
Where oh where do I begin with this review? I am still not sure myself how to put into words how amazing this series is. I will admit that I still have to go back and read the first two books in the series, which I will be doing very soon, but this series...this series is probably one of the best MC series out there. Bosco's writing just keeps getting better and better. She pulled out all the stops with this book and brought this series to an amazing end...an end I and I know so many others did not want to see. When I picked up the third book in this series to review for the blog tour, I devoured it! I have since devoured the rest of this series. Bosco's ability to weave a story full of suspense, lies, love, deceit and more is amazing. The character development, the flow and pace is spot on! Her writing skills suck the reader in and drag you on this roller coaster ride of emotions. I found myself laughing, getting angry, to the point I wanted to scream and throw my tablet across the room. I loved the fact that there were chapters devoted to Blackie, Jack and Riggs and that we got to see where they were at in their lives. What an epic series with an amazing delivery. Bosco wraps this unforgettable series up and leaves no strings, leaving the reader feeling satisfied with the entire build up and conclusion. Extremely well written and thought out, you feel like you are apart of the story, along for the last ride.
