This story is AMAZING simply amazing and I couldn't get enough from this story. It had so much in it and I loved how the author weaved this story. It is an insta love so be forewarned but it so simple that it is not unreasonable. It isn't one of those things that the see each other fall in love and happily ever after.

Gabriel is a basketball God but he is injured and becomes a coach in hopes of living out his dream of coaching basketball instead of playing. He is a God in the coaching world as

Temptation was quite the short(ish) story that I really wish had been longer. It's the story of Desiree Spence, a good girl who just went through a bad breakup, so she's starting over with a new job, but she has some trust issues. She meets Gabriel McCollough the basketball coach at her new school, and he wants her badly, but she isn't down for it since she's 10 years older than he is, and she didn't even know that he was a pro basketball player before his injury when she turned him down.

This is a new author to me, and I will certainly be looking out for her work in the future. Gabriel is a basketball coach, and Desiree is a new teacher at the same school. The chemistry between these two is intense and undeniable. This is a well written story which is filled with drama, and is a sweet, humorous read. I was intrigued and hooked throughout, and I recommend for all lovers of an older woman / younger man scenario.

This wonderfully sweet book captured my attention from the very beginning with the well written storyline and well developed characters! I really liked the interaction and chemistry between Desiree and Gabriel which kept me glued to my kindle until the turn of the very last page!

The story of Gabriel and Desi is a sweet one. Personally, the character development wasnt as in depth as I would prefer but overall I did enjoy the book and if youre looking for a quick satisfying read, then this is for you.

I really wanted to enjoy this story.

I didn't connect to the hero of heroin. I never was invested or felt like I had a full understanding of their back stories. The sexual chemistry was good. I plan on reading another series by this author. This one was just okay for me.

This book is a sweet read. It’s between a older woman and a younger man and showed you the struggles between then because of family drama and society preconceptions. The writing flows, the story is solid and character development is there.

This a wellwritten and fastpaced story that captivated me from the start. The storyline is entertaining and actionpacked. The characters are wonderful. Can not wait for the next book in this series.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Desiree Spence just lost her job and the man she loved. With everything going on Desiree has decided she needs a fresh start, new town, new job and perhaps even a new man.

Gabriel McCullough, superstar NBA player injured after two seasons retires and becomes a coach to help with influencing the next generation.

The chemistry between Desiree and Gabriel is undeniable but Desiree is fresh out of a relationship where she was betrayed and she also has a problem with him being 10 years younger than
