Awww so sweet and sexy. 4.5 stars
There’s nothing better than the feeling an illicit romance. The Excitement, sneaking around, secret glances, and little touches. It’s so sexy.

It’s exactly the feeling that Robin Bielman gives us in this sweet romance story. A part of a series but definitely a story that can be read on its own, Too Hard to Resist is a steamy novel that makes your heart pitter patter. Elliot is so Flippin hot and his connection with Maddie is blazing hot too.

The medium of gif is the best way to sum up my reaction whenever Robin Bielman releases a new book.


I think the fact this is my seventeenth read by Robin speaks for itself—I make no secret that she is one of my favourite authors—and it matters not the genre, trope or setting, she’s never yet failed me. And the third book in her Wherever You Go series continues that trend, bringing us Elliot Sax and Madison Hastings, the singletons amongst their loved-up group of friends, and co-workers in a comp

4.5 - "You're great is all..." Stars!

The third book in Robin Bielman’s Wherever You Go series definitely lived up to its title, because Elliot Sax, was definitely Too Hard to Resist for this reader.

Hands down the best book of the series so far, I absolutely adored the ‘forbidden’ romance between Madison and Elliot.

She’s in the friends-and-coworkers zone and that zone is banned from your pleasure…

You could feel the chemistry between them from their first meeting, the sexy banter and the bubb

My laptop bit the dust, so I'm way late in posting my review!
I really enjoyed this book. I think that this is my first Robin Bielman book. It certainly won't be my last. I found her writing style a little different than I normally read. This is dual 1st person POV.
A slow burn romance. I requested & received this ARC without realizing that it's the 3rd in a series.
I had no trouble following. The main characters from the first 2 books are supporting characters in this one.

I dived into Robin Bielman’s ‘Too Hard to Resist’ without having read the other books in this series, happy to say that this works perfectly as a standalone. And the pages do turn quickly, with the gradual upping of sexual tension until it eventually breaks.

A friends-to-lovers romance isn’t my favourite though the forbidden workplace one is one that I was eager to delve into. But ‘Too Hard to Resist’ is a hard one to write about, not because it wasn’t an easy read (it was) but because the to-an

Wow Wow Wow!!! This book! Holy nuts this book! I did not put it down, and couldn't until I finished it. This is my favorite book from Robin to date. I was just speechless when I finished it. I still don't know how to even review this because it was that good. Not just good fantastic!
I'm going to try to be brief for several reasons, you need to read this one, you don't need me telling you all the yummy details because you're going to want to melt in your seat all by yourself and you're going to

This is the first book I've read by this author and if her others are anything like this one I'm hooked! This is not your typical office romance between the boss and his assistant. It is so different from anything I've read before.

What makes it unique, is that Elliot and Maddy knew each other before they started working together. Not only do they have mutual friends, but her best friend is dating his best friend/roommate. So they see each other often at social events. But whe

The Wherever You Go series has been my introduction to Robin Bielman and I swear each new book in the series has me wondering why it took me so long to find her. I have loved each of these books for different reasons and in different ways, and Madison and Elliot’s story is no exception.

There’s something about the writing in these books that is irresistible to me. It’s engaging, flirty and fun without sacrificing any emotion. There was a bit of a taboo vibe to this one – which ratcheted up the ex

Too Hard to Resist is the third book in Robin Bielman’s Wherever You Go series. This standalone read features a to die for hero and a charming heroine. In fact, the book emcompasses everything I love about Robin’s writing. You have a hero who says the right things, does the right things, and has a great sense of humor. The heroine is funny, resourceful, and sweet as can be. Not to mention, Robin’s writing allows you to visualize all the scenes.

Book Gannet
There are a lot of tropes mixing in this book – an office romance combined with friends-to-lovers, while throwing in plenty of forbidden romance and even a hint of best-friend’s sister (although not quite, because Madeline is only like a sister to Elliot’s best friend), which all come together to make a surprisingly slow burn romance that has plenty of lustful looks and thoughts and much dithering and vowing to forget for the good of both their jobs. It makes for a fairly good read, if not my fa ...more

Fraternizing in the workplace may be against work protocol, but Elliot Sax and Madison Hastings cannot seem to resist the pull they feel towards each other, which means secret encounters and forbidden rendezvous are risks they’re both willing to take once they realize that their mutual attraction refuses to dissipate.

But to get to that point in their relationship, Elliot and Madison, as well as readers, must endure mixed signals, frustrating interactions, and missed opportunities that will have
Robin Bielman's TOO HARD TO RESIST lived up to it's title. It is catchy and the cover is so gorgeous. This, aside from the fact that I've heard good reviews for the author's previous work, is what made me grab this to read and review.


Let us also add to the fact that Bielman's writing is very engaging and fluid. Office romances probably sounds common to most. Add to the fact that this is a slow-burn romance too? It gets tricky right there.

But the author has a way in portraying her characters

Too Hard to Resist is completely IRRESISTIBLE! Prepare for the funniest, sexiest, most heart-stoppingly romantic read of the year! If you loved Simon Parker from Wallbanger or Bennett Ryan from Beautiful Bastard, buckle up because you’re going to adore Elliot Sax. He’s smart, ambitious, and utterly hot. And Madison is just the girl to match wits and wiles with him. The chemistry between them is absolutely explosive, but I’d be selling this story short by focusing solely on the banter and attract ...more

Let's start like we always do, with the cover - or why I picked the book. I liked the model, he looks a bit like my hubby, if I have a couple drinks and squint really hard.

Actually, the real reason I picked the book was the title. Too Hard to Resist as soon as I read it I thought there had to be a dirty joke somewhere. I mean, we all know at least a couple things that are hard and well hard to resist...

Robin Bielman is an author that makes you have fun with her books. Too Hard to Resist is no exception as it's a  light, quick read that will make you smile. It's a slow burn office romance that will leave you hot but satisfied with its sexual tension.

Madison is ready to move on with her life and that means succeeding in her new job. She has all that she needs but she cannot have what she wants; her boss.

Elliot has met his assistant before but for the first

Too Hard to Resist by Robin Bielman is a beautifully written and heartwarming read.

I loved reading Elliott and Madison's story, they made me laugh, they made me swoon and they entertained me watching them fall in love.
Elliott and Madison were likable, passionate characters that I easily connected with and totally understood their dilemma with working together and struggling to keep their attraction at bay.

Meh, this was just an okay read. I had a hard time liking Elliot oftentimes since he seemed too selfish and career-focused. There's nothing wrong with being focused on your career, but to assume the girl you're in love with will just give up her career since you're a man and you're in a higher ranking position was just wrong in so many ways (and I'm in no way close to a feminist). I did like Elliot at first though, he just ruined it for me when he made that rash decision for Maddie.

Loved this slow burn, forbidden, office romance.

"Even if he weren't my boss...he's a million times out of my comfort zone. I'd never be enough for someone like him."

Madison Hastings desperately needs this job so she can save enough money to move out of her parents' home. She can finally put her college degree to good use, too. The fact that her new boss is also from her social circle shouldn't be a problem. However, she wasn't prepared for the sexual attraction that blooms between them.

This is a brilliant, steamy, contemporary romance with plenty of humour that had me laughing out loud. With mutual friends who have become couples, it would be great if Elliot and Madison actually got together - or would it? Actually the other couples aren't keen, she's just got a new job and he's her boss and, to top it all, their work place has a no work romances policy, so no, they shouldn't get together. However, that attraction between them is so hot it is so difficult for them to resist . ...more

the third book in the wherever you go series, too hard to resist, has elliot and madison finally hooking up, but its complicated by the fact that elliot has become her boss. when she accepted a temp-to-hire job she never imagined that her boss would be the guy she couldn't stop noticing.

Quite possibly my favourite of the series so far, I adored Elliott and Madison from the get-go and reading their story left me with a complete feel good vibe. Friends to lovers and forbidden love are two of my favourite genres and Too Hard to Resist was perfect on both counts. Both Elliott and Madison are career driven and when they end up working for the same company (a company with a strict no fraternisation policy) things start to get complicated.

When I got the chance to read an early copy of Too Hard to Resist, I was so happy! This series has been so enjoyable to read and what made Robin Bielman a must-read author for me. I highly recommend it! While this is the 3rd book in her Wherever You Go series, it can be read as a standalone.

The chemistry between Elliott and Madison is smokin’ but they know they have to try and keep their hands off each other, no matter how hard it is. Workplace romance could get them both fired. They work reall

Elliot is quite blunt, sometimes the man just blurts things out, “eff, Madison. The very last thing I ever want to do is hurt you. Ever. I’m saying that because I’m jealous. I’m jealous, okay? I want you, and I don’t want anyone else to have you.” ****. I can’t believe that all came tumbling out of my mouth." Elliot's questions are basically statements, “I’m going to eff you now. Is that okay?” He stalks toward me, blue eyes piercing and powerful." Elliot wants his woman in a lot of places, “My ...more

Loved, loved, loved!! I laughed, I swooned, and I cheered as Elliott and Madison worked through the slow build of their relationship. Sure there was immediate attraction but since any type of relationship is strictly prohibited in the workplace they try to fight it! Some things are just too intense to ignore and eventually they give in to the flame burning between them. Where do they go from here? You will definitely want to grab a copy of this one and find out! I highly recommend it.

The first two books in this series were so much fun, and I was thrilled to be able to read TOO HARD TO RESIST early. I stayed up well past my bedtime reading this romantic page-turner. Robin Bielman knows how to draw the reader in with her likable characters and witty banter. This book will leave you smiling!
