It’s not just a love story, it’s an obsession...


Every time my neighbor jogs past my house, I do my best to tempt him. Washing my car, watering my lawn, doing yoga in the grass with all my assets in the air. I’m not sure if he notices me, but I sure can’t miss him.

Then one day he falls... into my arms and into my bed. Surprisingly, we’re better matched than I woul

Tempting Him
An Obsessed Novella, Book 5
By: Jeanne St. James
Narrated by: Ava Lucas, Aaron Shedlock

Jeanne St. James pens another wonderful, smoking hot novella in her “Obsessed” series. She has a great writing style, I love how much story she fits into her novellas. The interesting storylines are original and captivating from story to end, as well as super hot. This is Skylar & Cade’s story, Skylar has had her eye on her new neighbor,

I absolutely love Jeanne St. James' Obsessed series! First, they're just the right "bite" size read. Long enough for James to create characters you'll fall in love with, but short enough to be read in a single sitting without staying up past your bedtime - not that's ever stopped me before, but you know!

I think what I love the most about this series is it's just a slice. You usually get to be a voyeur to get a peek at a pivotal moment. These stories are normally less than 24 hours in her charact

I see people jog by my house all the time, but I have never had an occurrence like this! Cade passes by Skylar's house the same time everyday and she has a fascination with him. When they finally bump into each other, she finds out the obsession is mutual. But as usual, Jeanne St James doesn't just stop there. In her stories, there is always more than just the erotic, steamy scenes, and let me tell you, this one is hot! In this one she gives a back story that will tear your heart open and seal i ...more

Loved this novella!!! A secret service agent and a neighbor have a little fun, without realizing a secret lies between them. They get caught up in their passion, and the fire is intense!!! I love books written by Jeanne St James because you never really know what to expect. Sky and Cade are very likeable characters, and the story that is between the pages is phenomenal. The ending came up on me suddenly, and I'm still begging Jeanne St James to write a follow-up on all her Obsessed couples to se ...more

Another fabulously hot and sexy story from Jeanne St James.
Skyler finds reasons to be outside when the hot guy runs by three days a week and does her best to be noticed by him.
Cade doesn't like to run but he likes what he sees when he runs past Skylar's house. He is too busy day dreaming about her to pay attention and literally falls at her feet. What happens next you simply have to read for yourself.
This is a fast paced, hot and sexy novella with some drama and personal baggage included that w

WOW!! For a couple months now Skylar has made sure she is outside Monday, Wednesday and Friday when he runs by. This Friday she gave him a view of her rear in her yoga pants causing him to trip and fall into her arms. They find they are not only close neighbors but kindred souls in BDSM . She asks if he likes 'ass play' before she gets his name, Kincade. This book has hot sex with the ageing bachelor thinking of moving in before he has asked all the questions a Secret Service Agent should and wo ...more

I love Jeanne St James books. Even though this is a quick read, this book hits the ground running and doesn't stop until the very last word.
Skylar and Kincaid have a special connection, something that they both know they need and have been happy to wait until they found it.
This is an extremely sexy book, and as much as I loved that part, Jeanne left me absolutely stunned with that twist at the end!!
Absolutely brilliant.

Another beautiful, hot and quick read from Jeanne St. James.
I loved Skylar and Cade's story, their games and their connection, but the end was wow and honestly I didn't expect something like that.
If Jeanne want to start new series than that should be a Secret Service Series, so we can read more about Cade and Sky.
So I truly want to recommend this hot novella, buy it and I hope you'll enjoy reading it as much as I did.

Can you fall in love with a man you have never really met? For Skylar the answer is yes and the man in her sight is Cade her neighbor. When the two finally meet there are more sparks than the Forth of July and the passion turns so steamy you have the need for a cigarette when you finish the book. This might be a short story but Jeanne St. James packs so much into it that you cannot help but fall in love with the characters and you will not want to put it down.

Skylar is always keyping an eye out for her HOT neighbor Cade as. he goes running three days a week. She always makes sure to be outside doing something wearing skimpy clothing. One day, he literally trips and falls into her arms. She brings him into her house, cleans his wounds and then brings him to her bed. Little does she know that he is in law enforcement and she has a huge secret to hide... Iread this book as an ARC and this is my honest review.

I enjoyed Skylar & Cade’s story but is there more?!? The ending came too fast! Cade is a secret service agent and Skylar is a widow. They noticed each other and have been doing things to catch each others attention which is too cute. Cade falls and Skylar comes to his rescue and then it’s “do you like ass play?”😂😂 I loved how direct Skylar was. They had great chemistry and the sex scenes were hot!

This novella is a very enjoyable blend of cuteness, steam and drama. I loved Skylar and Cade and how their story gets its start. These are both very likable characters and the attraction and chemistry they share is explosive. Unfortunately, they both have secrets that could end their relationship before it really gets started. A very entertaining read. I'm voluntarily posting an honest review. ...more

Wow! The story was well written, the well planned plot flowed smoothly from page to page and the explosive chemistry between Skylar and Cade kept me totally captivated! As I turned each page the characters seemed to jump from the page and pulled me right into their story as it effortlessly unfolded! This book is an absolute must read, I wish I could give it more than 5 stars!

He jogs by her house 3 times a week and she’s noticed. She’s been doing everything to get him to notice in return. A yoga move finally makes him trip. She “ saves” him and cleans him up.

Skylar is a bit obsessed with a handsome runner. He jogs by her house on certain days. She does everything to allure him until one day he falls on her lap. They are explosive together but they have their secrets. Cade and Sky are one hot couple though!
