HEChapter -Tina J
The shadowy black and white composition and dual font title provided very little visual appeal to me. It was not eye-catching at all. I discovered this book when it was mentioned by another reader & opted to read the synopsis, which interested me for the whole “wounded warrior” trope alone.

POV ~> alternating first-person

The concept was strong and the blurb really pulled me to read it, enough so that I bought it and bumped it to the top of my TBR list. Sadly, I was not as impressed with it as I

"Patrick Connors is nothing but trouble, and that's the last thing I need in my life"
You can't get any better than that. He has nimble fingers, playful lips and mad skills in the bedroom. Well....outside too, in the kitchen table, in the club-temptations, against the wall.... you get what I mean😜

Hot Emotional Read With A Ton Of Heart!!

Tempting Tricks is book #2 in what is becoming my new favorite series! It can definitely be read as a standalone but I guarantee that after you read it, you'll go get book #1 to meet Trey. Lol!

Trick aka Patrick is suffering from PTSD and is transferred to a new therapist, Annabelle. In an attempt to figure out Trick and his demons, Annabelle goes under cover at The Den. Will she be able to help Trick or will he end up saving her? One click and see for yo

This is book #2, in the series. However, it can be read as a standalone. The characters are explained very well.

I was really curious to see how the author would take this from a doctor/patient relationship to something more, especially given I've worked as a therapist in the past. The author did a great job with it, though there's more than just transferring the patient to another doctor according to the ethics board, but I think the way it was done in the book is realistic.

I appreciated the very real PTSD symptoms that Trick had and the reason why. I liked that Bella had her own issues and that the autho

Fall in love with Patrick!! This is an easy to get lost in novel that has you flipping pages and it's over before you realize it.
Patrick aka Trick suffers from PTSD. Enter therapist Annabelle.
She's like a siren for him. She craves the knowledge that will help him but knows she's not able to help him with the intense chemistry they have.
Darkened meetings in The Den and surprised Trick kicks the story up a notch.
If you thought Charlotte and Trey were made for each other, you haven't met Patrick
Overall this was a good read. Annabelle is psychiatrist and this is how she meets Patrick. He is having a hard time adjusting after being the only survivor which is why he is sent to her. They start spending time outside of the office and of course they start falling for each other. After some drama near the end they get their HEA.

OMG! I knew I was going to love this broken hero, but I mean I absolutely adore Patrick "Trick" Connors! Michelle sure gave us a hero we could feel everything for and easily fall in love with. I love everything this story has to tell, even some of the more difficult painful things, because it all adds to the understanding of the inner workings of Patrick's mind and why he feels he only deserves pain.
I love how deeply healing it turns out to be for his heart, soul and mind to finally have someon

Patrick oh Patrick he will make you swoon so hard and melt ya at the same time! Annabelle helps post-traumatic stress disorders in soldiers. Meeting Patrick is a instant connection but Annabelle is trying so hard to put her feelings aside but when she notices blood on Patrick and he’s still going to the club she wants to know why. This book is hot, sexy, intense at moments but a page turner that makes you not want the book to end. 5/5 stars

I couldn't wait to see Trick get his perfect ending. Trick was so haunted by a scene from his past that he was unable to control. Trick was living in the shadows of darkness til he met Belle. Belle had some stuff in her own closet she was still dealing with. Trick and Belle together was utter perfection , they both complimented one another with there personalities. Trick is more gruff than Belle is used to ,but that is part of the appeal for her. Look forward to the next book in the series.

Tempting Secrets is the next installment in The Tempting Nights Romance Series, but can easily be read as a stand-alone. Trey & Charlie from Tempting Secrets are here but not in a way that had you not read their story you couldn’t follow along. If anything, the author writes this as a true stand alone & them being friends of Patrick “Trick”, yet if you have read their story, you see their lives evolve to the next level.

Michelle blew me away with this story and once I started it was hard to put down. Annabelle (Belle) is a psychiatrist who specializes in post-traumatic stress disorder. One night she goes to a BDSM club with her friend in disguise and she immediately feels an attraction to Patrick (Trick) when he shows up at the same club. He feels like he knows her from somewhere but he can't put his finger on it. She knows she shouldn't encourage him since he is her patient. When he shows up at their next appo ...more

Wow, this is the first time I have read this author and I am hooked. I have found out that this is book two in the Tempting series but I found that I was okay reading them out of order. I am sure by reading these in order you will get more of the hidden ques that the author may leave but I did not feel like I missed a thing. I loved the characters and the story that they told. PTSD is not a topic that is to be taken lightly and thankfully it is getting more widely accepted and treated. This is s ...more
Nicki - The Overflowing Bookcase
Have you ever read a book that you become so invested in the characters need for a HEA you cannot put it down until you finish the book? This is the one for me. Patrick a/k/a Trick is emotionally not available. Working as a male escort and having sex with any woman who asks, is only one small part of the man who is hiding his inner turmoil and PTSD. As a military helicopter pilot who lost all of the men on his team in a crash, he places blame on himself and uses the pain of being whipped and can ...more

Annabelle (Bella) is a psychiatrist who helps people deal with the struggles life throws at us every day. She's had some doozies of her own to face. Patrick (Trick) is a former military pilot who was shot down in Afghanistan and saw his crew blown up. He suffers from PTSD and survivor's guilt. He comes to Bella for therapy but can't open up to her. He seems only to find relief at a sex club enduring BDSM pain.

A compelling story of pain and suffering but also of love and new beginnings.
by sewsummore

The pain and the suffering experienced by our servicemen returning from war with PTSD is exposed in this story. Patrick found a way that silenced his anguish by submitting himself to pain, something his shrink failed to understand. When she experienced it herself she knew why he went back time after time but knew there had to be a better way. By reading this story I came to understand their pain and rejoice

Tempting Tricks was the first book I've read by this author. It's a fairly quick read, but full of secrets and demons for the hero.

Patrick, aka Trick, is suffering from PTSD ever since returning from war. The only thing that quiets the voices in his head is him taking the pain handed out by the dommes at the club he frequents. Even though he kind of crushes on his shrink, he'd never let her really see his true self.

Except that Annabelle knows there is more to her client than he's letting on, esp

Steamy somewhat taboo love story with a message

Trick is a veteran with severe PTSD. Guilt and loss rule his world and, when the memories come knocking, the only place he finds relief is at “the club”.

Annabelle “Belle” is his therapist. After weeks of sessions filled with silence and sexual tension, she has more questions than answers about this man and her feelings towards him.

While they can’t deny the heat between them, each have their own demons to work through before they can give in to what

I wasn't sure about this story at first, but the more I read the more I enjoyed it. Patrick or "Tricks" was a pilot in the military and is now suffering from PTSD. Annabelle is his therapist; however, their strong attraction is making it difficult for her to continue his treatment. Add in some friends who are a bad influence, a forgotten jacket and a little snooping and you get a huge ethics violation and the beginning of a quick and steamy romance!! I liked the characters and even though I'm sk ...more

This is a gem of a story. It deals with something a lot of people are affected by PTSD and is still not fully understood, but there is not one fix all for this. The main male character has decided that to deal with his PTSD he’ll go to a place where people shall willing cause him pain if he asks for it. His therapist, the main female character has never been to a BDSM club before and so has no real insight in to whether it is helping her patient or harming him. The story and the romance moves on ...more

I've already fallen

I knew Trick was a kinky mofo. But I didn't know how sweet he would be after he fell in love. When he tells Belle "I've already fallen" SWOON.
They both have so much emotional trauma. It was so heartbreaking to hear their grief over their losses.
And Gabby made me so mad...... gah cant wait for her book to see what happened.
And Charlie and Trey naming the sweet❤
Their chemistry was explosive and so steamy. Loved everything about Trick and Belle.

Will Annabelle be tempted by what Trick has to offer?
This is my 2nd book by Michelle and I love an author who writes in dual point of view. Trick is seeing Annabelle for his PTSD as the soul survivor of his helicopter crash from an RPG. There is electricity between them, but Annabelle remains professional. But when Annabelle discovers Trick’s membership card to the Den, all bets are off. Will Annabelle realize that she wants what Trick can offer? You have to read to find out and won’t want to pu

Trick (Patrick) is suffering from PTSD and pain is the only way he has to deal with the guilt and pain. Annabella is his PTSD therapist.

Trick's story is here in Tempting Tricks. He is a hot and sexy veteran that has his own demons from his time in the service and tries to deal with them in his own manner. Annabelle is his doctor that has been trying to help with his PTSD but ends up learning new things about herself from Patrick, and eventually realizes that there is more than just being his doctor. This is a very sexy read but also has it fair share of characters dealing with their own inner turmoil, and it all comes together i ...more

Tempting Trick - Michelle Windsor

My first Michelle Windsor novel but definitely won’t be my last.

A PTSD therapist, Annabelle must help Patrick (Trick) try to overcome his demons.
With the element of BDSM interwoven into the story, it kept me reading and I could feel the emotion and turmoil Belle and Trick we’re trying to push through.
Great premise and a well crafted story with beautifully broken characters. I look forward to more in this series.

Uplifting with a lot of spice

Just as hot and steamy as Trey and Charlotte with a twist of vulnerability. You start reading and will not want to stop because you become so enthralled in the words and characters lives. Patrick's story with Annabelle is well written and takes you on a journey that will have your emotions in overdrive. You want these feelings and to hear what they have to say with the added bonus of sexual chemistry that is off the charts.

This story was not so over the top with sexuality but it had enough that it entices you into the story. That being said, the story was fantastic. Trick and Annabelle learned and became aware and you did not know if they could make it. Isn’t that how stories are supposed to leave us - wanting, waiting, expecting, anticipating? A great read from a new to me author.

I received a complimentary copy from Booksprout.

You can’t go wrong with this author and with this series. My heart bleeds for Patrick. Belle, who looks collected on the outside is hiding some pain too. The attraction and chemistry between them is undeniable. Their story is heartfelt. Their characters will make you empathize. The steamy sex is a bonus. This book is lovingly-written and very much a pleasure to read. [I received an advanced copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.]
