Mr Temptation

Rachael Stewart

Contemporary Romance
Businesswoman Zara Anders always keeps it professional at work—until she meets sexy billionaire Daniel. But their scorching affair is threatened when Zara learns Daniel’s secret… Will his racy business proposal tempt her back to the bedroom? After a messy breakup with an unfaithful ex, Zara Anders swears off men, vowing to focus on her career running an estate agency for the elite. And then she meets Swedish billionaire Daniel Lazenby: strong, successful and sexually magnetic. Just the kind of man she should avoid. Daniel is helping his sister buy a house, and Zara finds him impossible to resist. Before long, the pair embark on a passionate fling, all the racier for its secrecy. When Zara discovers the truth about Daniel’s womanizing ways, she’s furious. She wants to end their affair immediately, knowing she’ll only get hurt otherwise. But Daniel isn’t going down without a fight. He hires Zara himself. He wants two houses—and a shot at proving to Zara that their red-hot chemistry is worth fighting for. Zara knows the deal might break her heart, but the business is too tempting to turn down…and the out-of-office thrills are an electrifying bonus!

Welcome back everyone, I feel like I’m flitting between various tours, NetGalley books and author requests and never quite working on my TBR pile. And this one is no different. Rachel has brought another Rachael Stewart novel to her tours so I just had to give it a go.

I don’t know what it is about Rachael’s writing that I enjoy. But whether it’s erotica, NA or straight up romance I find myself drawn into the stories and feeling like I’m right there with the characters.

In her latest novel (I got to read an ARC copy so I was super excited!) we moved into a straight up romance with Zara (BTW that’s the second book I’ve read this week with a main character called Zara) and Daniel.

In a way this was a fairly standard romance story in that Daniel is a bit of a playboy but ends up falling for the girl who’s just been heartbroken. Yet unlike a lot of these types of stories I felt really invested in what Daniel was going through emotionally.

This helped me go from “I’ll just read it for a bit before sleep and pace myself to make sure I don’t finish this before next week” on a Wednesday evening. To “O crap… I only have 2 chapters and an epilogue left… well so much for pacing myself with this one…” on the bus home on Thursday.

I did find myself throughout this book, especially towards the end, rooting for Daniel and subconsciously telling him what to do to win Zara back. And at the same time subconsciously telling Zara that she needs to get over it and just trust him!

I guess that tells you that I enjoyed the book. And that I apparently have no self-control when I should be studying…

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review, next week I will be reviewing The Baobab Beach Retreat by Kate Frost. Continue to read further down to find out about the author and any extra giveaways available.
