3.5 ★★★

I loved Exquisite so I had very high hopes for Entice. I enjoy this author’s writing style, story development and detail. I was really feeling this one for the first 50 plus % and then not so much.

Josh was portrayed as just a bit too sweet even though he stood firm in what he wanted, and he did want the ‘Man-Eater’ Monroe. Shelly was portrayed as an alpha female; upfront and direct in what she wanted sexually. Although afraid to let herself fall for Josh even though she wanted him badly.

“Because I gave a guy like him a chance once, and he used it all up for every other guy like him.”

So… they struck up a deal for a sex only relationship and that worked fine until things changed under the dreaming tree…
“I called this my dreaming tree. I would come down here and dream of where I wanted to escape to and who I wanted to meet.”

This is where the story started to drag for me. Months and months go by, nothing is resolved. Josh moves away (even though I knew exactly what he was doing.)

The marriage between Lena and Mason occurs which was beautiful and a highlight in the second half of the book. And then Shelly finally comes to terms with her feelings and … you need to read the book to find out what happens.

I will say I am quite excited for book 3. I believe Rachel and Cole’s story will have some kink to it!

Me too Lise, me too. It was GREAT in the beginning and middle, but just totally didn't like the ending. Oh well :D
