Mike Murphy is the new cop in Town.

He makes me crazy in all the right ways.

So crazy that I lose my filter around him, not to mention my ability to function like a normal person.

The attraction between us is undeniable and something we can't ignore.

But there's a secret that threatens to come between us. When we uncover more than we should, things become dangerous.

Will we be

This is the first book that I have read from the writing duo of Kelly Elliott and Kristin Mayer. I am happy that I was able to read this book. Kelly Elliott never ceases to amaze me and now I have a new author to read and love in Kristin Mayer. Loved Mike and Sydney so much. They were such a great couple. The chemistry between them was so intoxicating. I couldn’t put this book down. I was on the edge of my seat while reading it. With each page of this book you will have humor, romance, mystery, ...more

I loved everything until the end came.
Well, I wish he had a different name. It was icky hearing my uncle’s full name when they were in the heat of the moment...

But anyways. I loved it. I thought it was great but then I was just kind of let down at the end.
I was just expecting something different...

Dangerous Temptations was so different from anything I have read by these authors before, but what a fabulous read!

After the death of her grandfather, Sydney returns home to Salem, Massachusetts to run the veterinarian clinic that has been passed down to her. She receives a mysterious letter that sends her on a scavenger hunt uncovering clue after clue. I loved how these authors write together. They keep you engaged and guessing on how the mystery will unfold and how the past connects to the pr

Sydney has no problem throwing sass when she thinks it's needed, "I stopped with my hand on the door. “Yes, Officer Murphy?” It was a b***h move, and I saw his eyes widen infinitesimally at my switch in tone." Mike tends to make valuable arguements, “why not? They had *** in my house! Besides, they’re downstairs on the other side of the house. They’ll never hear us.” I liked this book, I loved Mike.

Not what I expected at all, not from the blurb, not from the cover, I was surprised.

The main characters meet fairly early on in the book and there's instant chemistry.

Sydney is moving back to her childhood town of Salem following her Grandfathers death and intends on taking over his practice as a vet. On her first night home Sydney meets Mike who is the town cop. Mike is keeping an eye out on her Grandfathers place while it's empty.

There's a rom-com feel at this point in the story and I loved

🖤⭐☠Heated romantic suspense set in Salem, Massachusetts☠⭐🖤

While I have read Kelly Elliott’s books before, and it was based on her previous books that I read this one, Kristen Mayer is a new to me author. Wow, just wow, there was so much more to the story than the blurb let on, and I absolutely loved it. This is more of a romantic suspense than was first hinted at.

Kelly Elliott and Kristin Mayer have written romance gold yet again with Dangerous Temptations. The story has everything from humor to suspense with passion and romance to round out this exciting new story from the authors who last wrote the best selling "Play Me".
Sydney returns home to Salem, Massachusetts to run the veterinarian clinic which was left to her after her grandfather passed away suddenly. It's upon first arriving back in town that she meets the hero of this read- Mike. He is the n

Wow. Dangerous Temptations took me by surprise, and I couldn’t put it down. It’s a fun, sexy and sweet romance with an absolutely fascinating mystery that leans on real life history. Sidney returns to Salem, Massachusetts, to take over her grandfather’s veterinary practice, and she meets the devastatingly attractive local police officer, Mike. They have an easy, flirtatious dynamic with combustible chemistry, and when things start to get a little weird in Salem, they make a great team. Sidney is ...more

Love me a Romantic Mystery

These two authors together are great!!! I really enjoyed the premise of this story, I loved how the authors combined the past and the present, the overall history of it all was super interesting and really had me guessing.

Throwing Mike and Sydney into this mysterious story was just an added bonus. These two were stinking adorable together. I loved how they were so into the scavenger hunt but still found time for each other and fell in love. They totally came into their

Dangerous Temptations is a romantic mystery you won’t want to miss !!!
Sydney and Mike’s story is set in Salem MA and what starts as just a scavenger hunt turns into so much more when this couple find love. I fell big time for Sydney and Mike and I really didn’t want their story to end because this writing duo made this love story a true magical experience when they gave us a romantic mystery with plenty of twists and turns.
These two authors work so well together and it’s impossible to tell who

This straddled the line for me. I absolutely love this duo and their writing, I love when they do a collaboration together, unfortunately this was a little miss for me. I loved the two main characters, Mike's parents and the town they are in. I enjoyed reading their banter, her clumsiness when he was around, their chemistry, how much they were starting to fall for each other, but the other stuff that was suspensy, it just went over my head, if I'm being honest. That aside, this was a really swee ...more

Omg!!! I love when these two authors write together!!! It’s how I first found Ms. Mayer a couple years ago. I gobble everything up either of them writes but when it’s then writing together I’m super excited!! This book had it all. Some mystery, history, love, and so much more. Sydney and Mike, what can I even say about them. They are everything. I seriously love them. Like, seriously!!! I could sit and gush for the rest of time but this book guys, just I loved it!!!!

Pairing Kelly and Kristin together to write a book is one of the best things to happen to the book world. They literally make magic when they write together

5 LOVING MYSTERY STARS!! OMG....I was on the edge of my seat with this phenomenal story. These authors had me playing the guessing game and saying oh my goodness moments. Mike is a hot cop and Sydney is a beautiful vet that will blow your kindles up with sexiness and you will be laughing at their banter. These two authors write so well together, they definitely compliment each other's style. Looking for a fabulous mystery with lots of hotness....this should be your pick.

‘Dangerous Temptations’ is the latest co-write between the dream team that is Kelly Elliott & Kristin Mayer, who were responsible for the outstanding previous co-write ‘Play Me’. We’ve been itching to read another novel by these two lovely ladies, and at last our prayers have been answered with this enchanting and enthralling read.

Thank you to HEA PR team & Kelly Elliott for the ARC, which has enabled me to write this pre-release, spoiler-free review for you all.

The dynamic writing duo of Kelly Elliott and Kristin Mayer does it once again! I am a long time fan of Kelly Elliott and was introduced to Author Kristin Mayer and her amazing books after their first writing collaboration. Oh My Word......when I read they were releasing another, I was beyond ready to get my hands on it! As always, they made this book fan very happy! Dangerous Temptations is a standalone and is told in dual POV. The flow of their collaborative writing was spot on!

I'm a HUGE fan of Krisin Mayer, but Kelly Elliot is a new to me author, so Dangerous Temptations is the first book that she's written with Kristin Mayer, and I found them to a perfect duo. Sydney is our heroine, and boy did I love her so much, as her sass was one of my favorite parts, especially when it showed up in her first meeting with our hero, Mike. She came back home to Salem, Massachusetts, after her grandfather passed away, so she's also decided to run the vet clinic that passed down to ...more
Reviews from the Heart (Kimberly Anne)
Dangerous Temptations was such a different kind of intriguing read. Mysterious in more ways than one. Dangerous Temptations was most certainly not your ' Average ' romance story. This was like reading two different stories in one. The twists and the turns, the past and the present, literally kept me on the edge of my seat. Kelly and Kirsten's writing is profoundly magical. They just took a story-line and made it their *****. The story developed in a timely matter, and the whole scavenger hunt wi ...more

Dangerous Temptations is my first time reading a book co-written by these Kelly Elliott and Kristin Mayer. I couldn't tell where one Author began and another finished, which was great. I've enjoyed books from Kelly Elliott in the past and will be checking out books from Kristin Mayer after reading this book. This book isn't your average romance, there's an underlying mystery element that was just interesting to read.

I have to admit Sydney had me laughing when I first started the book. I mean, I

5 Quite the Odd Couple Stars!!!

They’ve done it again…the writing duo of Kelly Elliott and Kristin Mayer have written a story that is both laugh out loud funny and suspenseful at the same time!! Mike is new to Salem and he first meets Sydney when she returns home to take over her Grandfather’s veterinary practice and to say their first meeting brought a huge smile to my face is putting it mildly…and it just gets better from there.

What’s great about this town is that even with all the history su

What a different yet highly enjoyable read! Going into this storyline with no expectations other than loving both authors, I came out so obsessed with this book! After losing the final member of her family, Sydney returns to her grandfather’s town to fulfill the plan they both originally intended before his passing. Meeting Mike, the new cop in town, Sydney is immediately attracted (as is Mike), and it’s so comical how they continue to run into each other in the funniest situations and say the f ...more

Sprinkle in - National Treasure, Da Vinci Code (Romance+Comedy) and you get another 5* winning book from the collaboration of two great authors, Kelly Elliott and Kristin Mayers! Writing on your our own is challenging but writing together can be even harder; but these two seem to pull it off with ease. And how they have managed it this time with a book so different from their usually outings is quite extraordinary.

It was pretty easy to pulled into this book right from the start, and I had a hard time putting it down; a Cirque du Soleil ticket was the only reason why I put this down, but you can best believe I was right back into the story during intermission lol.

There's so much chemistry between Sydney and Mike right from the start, and I laughed frequently at Sydney's lack of filter, which mainly served to be several embarrassing scenes right in front of Mike; it didn't take him long to begin to understa

Dangerous Temptations was my first time reading a book by these authors, but believe me, it will not be my last! This book has everything! Amazing characters, a mysterious story line and some hot off the charts chemistry!

I loved these characters and was hooked from the moment I started reading. My heart broke for Sydney with everything she was going through. After losing her Grandfather unexpectedly and having no other family left she was still such a strong character who tried to move forward

If you're looking for something new and refreshing in the contemporary romance department, dangerous temptations is the book for you. A swoon-worthy romance with a touch of mystery and and a whole lot of fun made this story absolutely phenomenal.

Let me start by saying Kelly and Kristin work extremely well with each other. Their writing is seamless and you can't tell who wrote what. The characters are well developed and it is evident they did their fair share of research before writing this book

I don’t even know where to begin with this review. I can’t form how much I love this book into words, so this will probably be pretty short and sweet. I have a serious book hangover. I would rate this book A MILLION STARS if I could. I am that in love with it!

I loved Sydney, plain and simple, I just loved her. She had some sassiness to her and she was an adventurer at heart. Mike, well who doesn’t love cop!? The two of them together were perfect. They hit it off from the very first meeting and t
