After last summer’s failed attempt at romance, Gina is absolutely done with men. And especially with millionaires. She has a good job as a fashion editor and amazing friends, and she’s decided she needs nothing else. All she really misses is the sex. But that rush just isn’t worth the risk of being ensnared in another relationship. When the hot bartender at her best friend ...more

I love the pretty cover for Tasting Temptation by Aria Glazki. It is simple, yet hints at more than meets the eye. I think it perfectly portrays Gina, who is broken, and I want her whole again. Will she meet the man who can help her?

Tasting Temptation is Book II in the Foraging Forever series. I have read Mending Heartstrings, Book I, and wonder why I only gave it three stars after reading Gina’s story. I think because the characters are polar opposites and I can relate to Gina better than Sabel

As much as I loved Mending Heartstrings (and it is very good), this book is even better. Gina's ill-fated relationship is portrayed in the background of the first book, setting the stage for her to have her own story. Her confidence shattered, Gina's coping mechanism of choice is to avoid all emotional entanglements with men in order to avoid any risk of another abusive relationship. She tells herself she's happy with just meaningless sex when she needs it, and nothing more. Then she meets Hunte ...more

Gina is getting over a bad breakup and as she takes her journey back into the life of being single again, she is guarded in whom she trusts and makes some decisions that at the beginning stunt her way to healing by refusing to date millionaires. In the end her journey leads her to the one man who also has a idea of the woman he wants. He wants a relationship like his grandparents and his journey keeps leading him back in the direction of the same woman. Will Gina and Hunter arrive at the same de ...more

Gina has been single since she got out of her abusive relationship to a wealthy man a year previous.
When she finds out that Hunter was more than the bartender at her best friends wedding she runs away. Turns out he is the owner of the vineyard that her friends wedding was at, and she certainly does not want another wealthy man. Hunter convinces her to give him a try by pretty much letting her lead the way. When her ex starts to meddle in her lif

I wasn't sure what to expect when I began this book, but its characters grew on me--not just the wealthy winery owner, Hunter Cavaliere, but also the jaded Gina, whose past relationship has turned her off controlling rich men.

How Hunter works his way into her heart was endearing, not just for his patience, but also his intuitive understanding of what Gina needed. How her past has affected her is doled out in tiny snippets that kept me wanting more, the better to understand her.

An affecting story

OMG. I think I might've forgotten to breathe while reading this! I liked this one even better than Mending Heartstrings -- MH is really sweet, much more romance-with-a-capital-R, but TT felt so real, with real doubts and heartache and traumas. Also, this book had way more sex in it, which is always a plus in my book.

"Tasting Temptation" is a wonderfully Sexy Romance with a Swoon-worthy Hero and an Intriguing Heroine who is a Beautiful yet Fragile Survivor. Aria Glazki has continued her Forging Forever series focusing on Gina, the fashion editor, who got involved with a emotionally and physically abusive wealthy Financier, Alistair, in the previous novel. Although she has made tremendous strides reclaiming her life, she is wary of wealthy men and relationships and avoids them at all costs. The terrible words ...more

Wow, wow and once again wow. This is one of the best contemporary romance books I have read all year. READ IT NOW!!!

Although this is the second book in the series, and I haven't read the first, there was enough background info given by the author to allow me to pick up the background story (this is about another couple) without giving away too many spoilers. In fact I am now desperate to read book 1.

The book is written mainly from Gina's POV, and she is a strong, determined but very human charac

If you are looking for a quick and easy book to read this is the one. Tasting Temptation is an enjoyable read with some very hot naughtiness thrown in to keep the reader involved in Gina and Hunter's "just one night" relationship that keeps becoming another night.

The author does a phenomenal job of describing the wine country and all the scene details throughout the book. Her attention to detail shows throughout the book.

And, of course there has to be someone to cause problems and honestly Gi

I enjoyed this well-written, sweet book. Gina has had bad experiences with men, especially her wealthy ex-boyfriend, so now she just engages in no strings attached "stress relief" occasionally when she meets someone she won't encounter on a regular basis. While at a friend's wedding at a vineyard in Sonoma, she takes up the bartender, Hunter on his offer. Turns out Hunter is not just a bartender, he's the vineyard owner, and when circumstances cause them to bump into each other in Oregon, he fol ...more

Aria Glazki warned me: this would be an explicit romance. Well, there was indeed a lot of sex involved, almost from the start.
The sort of sex you dream of, and do not always want to happen in real life.
But, the book is not just about sex. It is also the story of a woman who has been abused, has freed herself and now is facing abuse again. But she fights back.
Because of her personal history she is scared of permanent relationships.
The story has it all, the strength, weakness, lust and love. I lik

I received a copy for an honest review. The story revolves around Gina's wish to remain emotionally disattached to men, especially rich men. When she meets Hunter, she has to fight against all the emotional and physical scars from her past relationship. As the story evolves, you understand her hesitation but as it gets more complicated with her ex, I was rooting for Hunter and fell in love with his character. I also admired her determination to recapture her life. My only critique was that altho ...more

2.5 stars. For me I just couldn't get into the characters. Most characters all had rather unique names and it took me several chapters before I got straight who was who. I also couldn't get into the two main characters. To me, a man who would have a quickie with a random customer in his place of business after exchanging a dozen words is undesirable.

I was really disappointed. As a wino I was really excited for a romance involving a vineyard. I just never connected with any of the characters. I

Hunter and Gina were fun together. I loved that she assumed he was a bartender and didn't care to get any information about him...and then was made he didn't tell her. I thought it was so funny. I liked how they kept ending up together. Hunter believed in the HEA after watching his grandparents love, but Gina wasn't too convinced it existed. I liked the patience he showed in wooing her into believing it. He had a lot to overcome after that disaster with Allistair she had endured. I was pleased w ...more

I was intrigued with the blurb right off bat. This book was good and I enjoyed the characters but I hated the way it ended. I thought it needed more. I felt like there was more questions that needed to be answered. I loved Gina and Hunter together. They have an fun and flirty relationship. They are able to be themselves and live life. I also loved all her friends and Hunter's family as well. It was great book to read!

A sweet and spicy romance about a woman overcoming the emotional scarring of of an abusive relationship. Gina was my favorite character from Mending Heartstrings, so naturally, I was excited to read about what happens to her after her bad breakup at the end of the previous book. Glazki does not disappoint in telling a compelling story about the long, hard process of learning to trust again. A satisfying, quick read.

I enjoyed this book a lot. I loved all the characters and the realness they brought to the story. They didn't seem over the top, and i enjoyed the friendship aspect as well as the romance of the book.
