Zoe and Connor are two people who should not be together, and they both know this. A lot is at stake, like careers and hearts. Zoe has a bit of an accident and a subsequent concussion. Connor tends to her during this time. They are obviously attracted to each other, but a relationship is a stupid idea, unless it's a no strings attached kind of thing. Those always work out so well. Seriously? It's obvious where this is headed. The question is whether or not Zoe and Connor will survive the head on ...more

Inara Scott is a new to me author, and I didn't read the first book in this series, but I feel like you didn't really need to. The couple in that book do appear in this one, so I might go back and read their book at a later date. This book focuses on Zoe and Connor, good friends who have hidden how they feel about each other because of the complicated nature of Zoe being one of lawyers for his company. If you like both friend

This is a sweet love story that begins with a scooter accident that throws Zoe and Conner together. They're attracted to each other, but have a bit of a forbidden issue as well as a lifetime's worth of fears that interfere with them developing a relationship.

I enjoyed the characters and especially loved the author creating strong female characters that are able to find a way to be successful in both a STEM career and relationships. A female engineer turned lawyer is a great example for young wom

4.5 stars

Inara Scott's Temptation is the second in her Bad Angels series and I liked it even better than the first. Connor’s had secret feelings for Zoe since they met, so when he bears witness to her fall, he insists on taking care of her. They’ve always been friends, but they grow closer, close enough that Zoe asks for his help and he asks a favour in return

Temptation indeed! Did I ever love Zoe in this book and I learned a lot about whiskey drinking, thank you Connor very much! Come in and enjoy Connor and Zoe's story, it's a little forbidden, a little klutzy, a splash of curmudgeon, a shot of lust and some super swirl romantic moments. Toss in Connor's wacky mom's bridge club and it's the perfect foil for Zoe and Connor's tale.
Zoe is an attorney with the group that works with Connor's company. He and his two partners have taken Livend into the pu

Title: Temptation

Author: Inara Scott

Length: 400 pages

Publisher: Entangled Publishing

Genre: Romance, Fiction

My rating: 4/5


The story is about Zoe, a lawyer by profession and Connor whose company happens be to a client of Zoe’s company. As per law, they cannot have a relationship due to professional relationship. However, they still go ahead and have flings without any expectations. Their relation becomes complicated when they both start feeling more for each other

My Take:

The second book in Inara Scott's Bad Angels series sadly didn't feature any lovable pets like the first one (at least not until late in the book), but was a solid romance between Connor, a tech genius angel investor and Zoe, the patent attorney for his firm. Connor and Zoe are good friends through their mutual work together. Connor's been mooning over Zoe for 3 yrs, but afraid to make a move because he's known for self-sabotaging all of his potential relationships. Due to an incident as a child, ...more

Temptation by Inara Scott is the second book in her Bad Angels series. Ms. Scott is a new author for me so I'm reading this as a stand alone without any problem. Although I now need to read Heartbreaker which is Tess and Mason's story.

When I started this book I was in need of something that would lift my spirits and remind me why I enjoy escaping into a book so much. Fortunately, Temptation was just what I was looking for. The book tells the story of Connor, who has been in love with Zoe since he first met her. The only problem is that he's rubbish with relationships and she is a lawyer with the company that deals with his company, which means that she's off-limits. After an accident on an e-scooter Connor and Zoe find themse ...more

Zoe is a partner in a law firm together with 2 other male partners. Their biggest client Livend Capital also happens to be also headed by 3 partners. The 6 have grown to firm friends and interact both socially and professionally.
When Zoe tries out a scooter as a favour to one of her client’s who wanted her to try out their product, she quite literally bumps into Connor, and ends of spectacularly crashing head first. As a precaution for concussion, Connor is adamant in taking Zoe home with him so

What happens when a shy, introverted, super-smart rich guy, who happens to be an off-limits client, suddenly gets noticed by a smart, sexy, attorney who is just a little bit uncoordinated and in need of a helping hand. It ends up being an explosive mix and a fun book to get lost in.

Zoe has made a habit of keeping herself just a little bit separated from even her closest friends and Connor tends to get hidden in his work when he doesn't want to deal with situations around him, but he's been secre

This is such an incredible series. I fell in love with this group of characters in the first book but in the second book I fell in love with them even more. Inara Scott has done such a wonderful job of making you feel so much a part of what is going on in the story line. I picked up this book yesterday and started reading it and I honestly could not put it down. I was reading it everywhere and even when I should have been doing something else.

Lawyer Zoe Riva and venture capitalist Connor Ashton are friends and her law firm works for his company. But when Zoe was injured falling off an electric scooter, things started getting complicated after Connor volunteered to keep an eye on Zoe after she hit her head. Zoe had been engaged once during high school but she ended it to go to college. Ashton wasn’t the most social person and when he had enough of social situations, he just wouldn’t show up for things.

Conner has had a "thing" for Zoe for quite some time. Zoe is a partner in the law firm that represents Conner's company and that means that it would be a bad idea to get involved withher...especially given his track record!

Temptation by Inara Scott a five-star read that will tempt you out and go down like a fine whisky. This is the second story in the Bad Angels series, but they can be read as stand-alone as they each deal with a different set of characters from the same group of friends. I have been dying to get to know Zoe Riva better as she is a firecracker through and through, I imagine if you cut her in half, she would have firecracker wrote through her like a stick of Blackpool rock.

Zoe is an attorney and works mostly with patents. Connor is a tech genius and he and two friends own a company. Zoe works for the law firm that represents them. Connor is introvert, works a lot, and forgets special days. He has liked Zoe for years but never thought he was good enough for her. When Zoe wrecks a scooter, Connor sees it and takes her to the hospital. She stays with him because she has a concussion and needs to be woken up every so many hours. They decide to have a ‘secret’ fling an ...more

Temptation was an engaging, easy to read, light story. That had little in the way of angst and likable characters. Who although didn't overly excite me, did have a spark and their romance was sweet and pleasing to read. And with plenty of likable secondary characters, including the GPGs I was easily entertained throughout.

However, I did find it quite slow paced and felt at times the story lagged a little and could of maybe benefited from being shorter. But saying that I did enjoy it and I w

Another fun book from Inara Scott's Bad Angels series!

Connor and Zoe were both easy characters to like and their chemistry is evident from the very beginning. The scooter accident and Connor caring for her in the beginning were adorable, and their friendship and relationship grew naturally from there. The change from friends to more didn't feel rushed at all.

There are appearances by their coworkers and friends and I liked getting a little update on Tess and Mason who were the couple from the fir

Conner is an introvert and a genius. Zoe is fierce and determined. These two have been dancing around each other for years. Now they have crossed the line and have to try and work at a relationship. This is a wonderful love story. Two people who have scars that they need to shed to experience a full life. The characters are wonderful and realistic. The series is filled with great guys and girls as well as pooches. The elderly group is divine and will give you plenty of opportunities to smile.

A romance about two troubled souls, both nerdy and brilliant but wit troubled backgrounds and difficult family relationships. She is an engineer and a lawyer, (girls please note this possibility), and he is an IT engineer.
They work together and office rules say no romances with co-workers but.. a nice story with good characterisation.

I’m loving these Bad Angels, who are the so bad at all. Connor and Zoe both had pasts they were letting define their present, and it took a lot of love to heal and move forward. Romantic love, friendship love, and some family love too. Just a really great book!

I think I just fell in love. No, wait. I KNOW that I fell in love with this story!! I'm still kind of reeling from how much I enjoyed it! It's a keeper! It was quirky and yet so much deeper and different than I was even expecting it to be. Oh and I don't want to forget to mention that it was also funny at times. And that picture on the front of the eBook was kind of misleading but in a good way. Here I was thinking that from the picture Connor was going to be a bad boy biker and possibly a playe ...more

I was looking forward to this book. I thoroughly liked the first one and I adored this one. It manages to be fun, angsty, sexy and heartfelt at the same time.
Zoe Riva is a great lawyer with a sad past that is constantly struggling to be seen as an equal in her field. Her story resonates a lot because it's not about the big things women might encounter in their work spaces, like harassment or plain discrimination, but about the little subtle things that are there and not even the best partners re
