I liked Wicked - Tempt me Not.
It was a nice, short and sexy read i finished in less than 3 hours.

I would have given it 4 stars if not for the way it ended. Is that even called an 'ending'? Cause nothing was resolved. We still don't know if Holy is gonna cope with Devin being a famous, bad rockstar, and what the fans will do. If she will handle being on the newspapers, tv etc.

They haven't even said 'I love you' for christ sake!

I also lost count how many times Holy rolled her eyes at Devin. Ever

I’ve been looking forward to this read. I’m a huge rock star romance fan so as soon as I found this I wanted to get my hands on it. It is also the first time I have read anything by Lily Graison.

First of all, I read this book start to finish in a few hours – it was only 109 pages but I found myself devouring them with ease.

If you want to know what the book is about you will need to read the book info because I’m not going to rehash, but I will say that I really enjoyed the start to this series
Read this as part of the Erotica Group Book of the Week Challenge.

I would rate this as 2.5 stars and I think I'm being very generous. I didn't connect at all with Devin and Holly. The story felt rushed and totally implausible.

The sexual chemistry (or lack thereof) didn't do much for me at all.

I'll admit I went into this a little bias. Being a fan of Olivia Cunning's Sinners "band" books I was expecting a little more.. If I rate this strictly on a romance level the book was very good. I really liked the romance between Roxy and Devin who is the lead singer of the rock band Wicked.. This book takes place at a cabin in Tennessee where Holly goes thinking she is meeting her friend there for a 2 week relaxing vacation but the friend at the last minute calls once Holly is already there and ...more
Very sweet.

What a nice way to start a series. I can’t wait to read the next one. This is my first time reading this author.

So I have been in a bit of a can't-a-girl-get-a-hot-bad boy? funk lately. All I want is a little smexy num time with a bad boy rocker/tattoo'd play toy...yet I had seemed to be failing to find that. Really I have two ladies to blame for this...Ms. Olivia Cunning & Mrs. Cherrie Lynn.

How can I blame these two authors you may wonder? EASY! They spoiled me to no end, and now nothing else has been able to take me Backstage and Rock Me, if you will.....until now!!

This is my first book I've read by

So cute

I love the sexy attitude Devin gives Holly all the time. I thought it was funny that he had red blotches and kept asking Holly to bathe him. She knew bathing him would leave to hot sexy make out with a hot shot sex god!😋 so glad he was able to get in touch with Holly again!
I really enjoyed reading this, loved the storyline, loved Devin and Holly and look forward to reading the rest in this series :-)

Somehow a cabin in the woods was overbooked much to Holly and Devin's dismay. After her friend, Roxy, bailed on Holly last minute she was forced to spend their 2 week vacation alone. Or so she thought...

Devin, front man for Wicked, was forced to spend a month alone, free of all distraction. It was either that or his band falls apart. They didn't think they were going to be spending their supposedly stress free vacation with a complete stranger. With no way to contact anyone, and not in the mood

Basic thoughts on Tempt Me Not:
Within the first couple of chapters was I hooked on the story...Yes! Holly seems independant with not afraid of anything but is needing a break from her work and some alone time. Devin is having issues writing songs for the band and dealing with being a recovering alcoholic. Holly is suppose to be meeting her best friend at a cabin getaway for some R&R but her best friend ends up not being able to make the trip so Holly decides to take it on her own...enter Dev

I love Lily Graison’s Western Romance, Willow Creek Series and could not wait to see how she does in Contemporary Romance. Yeah baby she did not disappoint.

Tempt Me Not is a sassy, fun and sexy short novel. What I love most about Lily Graison is her beautiful writing voice. Tempt Me Not suck me right in from the beginning with her witty and fun characters that I could not help but fall in love with them.

Holly the heroine is a spitfire that goes head to head with Devin the hero. I love how she h

Tempt Me Not by Lily Graison
Wicked Series Book 1
Holly Baker has arrived up at a rented cabin in the hills of Tennessee. Nothing but nature around her. Her friend Roxy was suppose to be by her side but she called to say she couldn’t make it, after Holly already arrived. So here she was. Alone. Or so she thought. After returning from a nice rest in the hot springs pool she finds she is no longer alone.

Devin Shaw has had a rough two years. He single handedly messed up things for their band, Wicked

I really struggled, thinking on which rating to give this book. I feel terrible rating anything a two. There is potential in this author and this book. The story was cute, even. But I expect more in terms of editing and knowledge of English (example: the author incorrectly using "suppose" instead of the correct "supposed"). And the last couple lines of dialogue really read very cliche. I wanted to like this story so much more than I could.

Am I being picky? Yes. Am I a perfect writer, never makin

Recommends it for: Adults.
Ms. Graison has come a long way in her writing since this was penned. I prefer her Willow Creek books over this series. There isn't anything necessarily wrong with this particular story, but the language and sex was coarse compared to her other books. Take my words with a grain of salt. This just isn't my preferred material, but I can respect the author's ability to reach out to a variety of readers.

It WAS a fast read and a quick escape from the day to day humdrums. Devin, the stressed rock sta
Holly Baker and her friend are supposed be vacationing at a remote Tennessee mountain cabin, but her friend flakes at the last minute. Holly is resigned to spending the next two weeks alone. But surprise!! She finds a Devin Shaw in her cabin after coming back from a relaxing day in the pool. Rock star Devin has been sent to a remote cabin to work on his next album and give his manager time to clean up the mess he's made of his life and career. He's shocked when Holly comes back to the cabin, esp ...more
Holly Baker can't believe she is on vacation by herself, after her best friend cancels last minute. When Rocker Devin Shaw shows up while Holly is on a walk, she finds herself in an embarrasing situation and under the highly erotic watchful eye of Devin.

Devin has made his desire known, repeatedly but Holly is not the type of girl to be labeled a groupie. When the temptation becomes too much to resist, Holly decides that it may not be all that bad to get to know Devin on a more personal level, af

This was a quick read. I enjoyed it but I was left wanting more.

Holly is at a cabin secluded in the mountains of Tennessee where she planed to be on vacation with her friend Roxy but with a sudden change in plans Holly is left to vacation alone for the two weeks. Then walks in Devon the lead singer of the band Wicked. A mixup has both Holly and Devin staying at the same cabin.

I didn't feel the chemistry between Devin and Holly but there was a definite lust factor. I hope to see their relationsh
This was a freebie I picked up on Amazon and read as a Book of the Week challenge for the Erotic book group.

Last minute vacation disaster, no cell service, 10 miles from civilization, and Holly finds herself sharing space with a hot rocker named Devin.

There are some unbelievable parts (the the cabin not having some kind of emergency phone line or direct line to the office was a distraction for me, that could have been better written). The banter back and forth between Holly and Devin was entert

So I pretty much thought that Devin was a prick in the beginning, but overall I was glad things played out the way they did. The cabin mix up thing was fun and I enjoyed Devin and Holly 19s story. I really loved Devin 19s confession scene, but I wanted more from the reunion and gushing with Holly 19s best friend. While the ending was satisfying, I was just left wanting more.

Tempt Me Not is a fun, sexy story that will leave you wanting more. I look forward to checking out more in the series!

Devin is the lead guitarist of the famous band, Wicked, is supposed to be taking some time alone in a secluded cabin. Holly is supposed to be enjoying a women's only getaway with her best friend, who bales at the last minute due to work commitments; so Holly goes alone, looking forward to a quiet week. Imagine both of their surprises when they find themselves booked in the same cabin! Holly has a smart mouth which makes for a funny read. Devin is HOT which makes for great sex scenes and romance.
A pretty good quick read. I read it in a couple hours. My only issue is that since this was such a short story there was not a lot of character development. We do not know a lot about Holly or Devin. All we really know that Holly lives in LA and Devin is on a rock band and was in rehab for alcohol abuse. I wish we got to know about them. I think this story could have been better if it were longer.
Out of 5 star:
P.O.V. alternating between Hero and Heroine
Romance: 2.5
Sensuality: 2
Hero: Devin 4
Heroine: Holly
Enjoyable: 2
Secondary Characters: 2
Likely hood of reading the rest of the series: 2

This probably could have been good if it had been a full length novel. As it is i was left wanting. It just give me enough to earn more than 2.5 stars.

I am glad I got this one free off the authors website. If I had paid for it I would have been pissed.
