Micah Hudson has painful secrets he's run hard from. He has new friends, a new life, but he's about to be confronted with the one person who reminds him of all he's tried to forget--Angelina, the sister of his oldest friend David. She knows everything about his past, including how he and David fell in love ...more
Well, sometimes I shock myself. I actually enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I loved the plot, the humor, and especially the heroine, Angelina. She had an inner strength that I admired tremendously. In fact, I liked her so much that she ended up on my favorite heroine shelf. I was a little disappointed with the hero, Micah, though. From the start of the series, his character was fun-loving, charming, and deliciously cocky. Unfortunately, in his own book he came ...more
This was 35-year-old former Miami cop and now Houston security expert Micah Hudson's story. Micah, everyone's sexual "third" from the previous books in the 'Sweet' series, finally gets a lady of his own. Well, not without a lot of dragging his feet/making excuses about why he'll never let himself fall in love again, but he does eventually give in to a ...more
- I find the love story very appealing and sweet.
- There are some BDSM sex scenes that are amazingly hot, I loved them. I actually thing that those kinky sex scenes are the main reason I keep rereading Sweet Temptation. Let me explain, it is not just for the sex, but also because how that sexual relationship is transmitted through the book. It could have come across as porn, ...more
Reason for Reading: Maya Banks is my crack
Plot: Angelina has been in love with Micah, her brother's best friend, for ever. However, things are complicated because Micah was in a three-way marriage with the brother and another woman. He still mourns their deaths 3 yrs later. Angelina has been keeping tabs on Micah and thinking that the time is finally right, she goes to him in Houston with a stalker (natch!) on her trail.
Ramblings: I'm gonna ...more
I've been in love with Micah ever since Sweet Surrender, and I'd imagined that his story would probably be the darkest of the series. Well, Micah really showed his tortured, brooding, cold side in this, and it definitely has some heavy and hardcore content. And in fact, there were times that Micah made Damon from Sweet Persuasion seem like a total pussycat. Despite a few moments here and there that stretched my comfort zone just a bit, especially ...more
I was really looking forward to Micahs story since he was so likeable in the other books. I wont say I didnt like him in this book because sometimes he was sweet and loving and sexy as hell but I also didnt like how he sometimes treated Angelina. It was a real contradiction.
There is no need to read any of the books in this series if you dont like BDSM and menage/group sex. I think they were all tastefully done but it isnt for everyone. None of that bothered me but there ...more
I think in Sweet series, Maya Banks only focus on the sex aspect. Not on story, not on character. I found this book OK. I am intrigue with Micah when I read the first book. But it runs out he is very confusing character. One minute he feels sorry for himself the next minute he is ...more
Sweet Temptation is a story about Micah and Angelina.
This book is filled with mystery. Despair. Doubt. Betrayal. And I loved every second of it.
Micah has been a free-spirited and sexual charged character in all of the prior books. He is funny, sexy, and adores the female body. A total man whore to say the least.
Micah has been running from the grief of his best friend, David and his ...more
Micah Hudson used to be a cop in Florida but for the last few years has worked for a family-run security company in Texas - becoming one of the family in the process. That's about all his friends know about him, ...more
I like to have some romance and love in my erotica and this one just didn't have it. Perhaps it's a matter of personal preference and lifestyle choices, but I just cannot see how love can exist with someone as dominant and messed up as Micah. I also think that Angelina nees to have her head examined as well.
The sex scenes were definitely very hot and well-written, but they still left a bad taste afterwards because the gangbang scene, while ...more
yes, I know its erotica and yes that means that there usually is little or no plot, but I was really disapointed in this book.
IT started off all well and good and I was really intrested in the motivation of the main heroines motivation for taking the choices she did, but near the end I just skipped most of it.
Yeah the sex scenes were rather steamy and not something I usually read, but then I just didn't care. The fact that the Heroine was ...more
The hero (Micah) and heroine (Angelina) both crave pain during sex--in a big way--but it was never explained why, or at least not in a satisfactory way that made ...more
As mentioned by many other reviewers the sex scenes/gang bangs were horrible and degrading, but while reading I was distracted by having to suspend my disbelief. Angelina endured an amazing ...more
This story was nastily unpleasant. Time and time again Micah abuses "Angel girl". Does she pop him upside the head and find someone else. Of course not. She simply takes humiliating abuse. I am a little new to reading BDSM and erotica; this was gross, not sexy.
Maya Banks is an edgy writer. This is a sad fail for me. , and it relates specifically to one particular scene. I can read menage as well as BDSM, but this was just too ...more
I found some parts hard to swallow (such as the quick transition from "I don't want to sleep/corrupt you, you are my best friend's little sister" to "Lets have a 30+ page 5-some"). But the characters, themselves, were interesting.
Micha, was interesting to me. As a man, him and I wouldn't work out (foreplay is important to me. I worry about Angel's inevitable friction burns and tearing, yow!) and I am not sure that I would choose Angelina as a friend. However, I ...more
Ive been expected Micah's story sinceALWAYS.kkkcuz, until this he was my kind of alpha male, my McDream Mankkkso sexy, funny, flirt charmingBut then he met Angeline (holy crappy) and lost all those specials qualities&skills sniff, snifI cannot help myselfI rested in my misery. Really disappointing
Let me explain why: Sure, I like both separately ,as a couplearghhhthey affected my nerves in a negative way. The sex scenes were hard and hot, no doubt about that (well, I prefer a little...more
This book does not disappoint, but it is not for the faint of heart. Micah is indeed the master at kink, but Angelina is his mirror image and if you note that fact when reading this book it will make much more sense.
Micah is hiding, Angelina comes to his doorstep ...more
