4 1/2 stars.
The Temptation” by Cheyenne McCray is the exciting and sensual long-awaited sequel to the Lexi Steele series begun with “The First Sin” and continued with “The Second Betrayal”. The charismatic couple of Lexi Steele and Nick Donovan are reunited just as Lexi’s life is being threatened and the roller-coaster ride of danger and suspense takes off even as the two struggle with their intimacy issues. The passionate interludes combined with the tension that ratchets up as they get closer to their target makes this an intriguing read and makes one anxious to reach the end yet vaguely disappointed that this is a novella. The author does a nice job of drawing out the suspense as one wonders whether the corruption in the upper echelons will halt the investigation in its tracks and the horrendous parallels that result from Lexi’s sister being kidnapped conjure up the nightmares of past events. A great combination of spice and suspense that provides a very entertaining read.

Lexi Steele and Nick Donovan are part of the Recovery Enforcement Division and reunite after his six month absence in order to track down the evil mastermind who is responsible for traumatizing Nick’s sister and masterminding many heinous crimes. They have to find out whether they still have a relationship even though Nick has moved to another state for his sister’s recovery and Lexi must decide whether to persist in her rejection of Nick’s love or to accept that they make a great team in and out of the bedroom.
