Review by Kristi Lynn

This is the story Jessica Blake and Adam Maxwell and the first in the Vegas Edge Series. Jessica works for a newspaper and is looking for her big break. She wants to write a story on the BDSM scene and decides to visit a club and try to get the inside details on the lifestyle. Adam is a Vegas mogul and is drop dead gorgeous and Jessica is shocked to find him at the club. She is even more shocked when she finds out he will be the dominant in charge of introducing her to lifestyle. They have an immediate chemistry, however Jessica’s cover as a reporter is discovered, and Adam is furious. Will Jess lose her big story and possibly even her career? Will Adam look past this initial transgression and move forward with Jessica and her curious nature?

What I Loved About This Book
Rosemary did a fantastic job with this story. I loved the character development and the chemistry between the main characters and the sub characters in this story. One of my favorites was Harley the dog! How can a dog be a favorite character? In all honesty it was the interaction with him and all of the other characters in this story. Jessica is strong female lead which I love in a book. Her spunk and sass truly made this story a great one! I laughed out loud at several points in the book with her narrative and dialogue. Adam or Sir Dude was a fantastic male lead. He was alpha but not over bearing and obnoxious. He was sexy, sensual, seductive and overall a delicious male character. I thought the overall story was well written. Along with some heat and love, Rosemary through in some suspense and angst. There is a bit of mystery in the story that I was not expecting which was a nice touch. This was not a typical BDSM story and I think that is a good thing. It was fresh and new.

What I Did Not Love About This Book
I felt like the ending was rushed or lost me a bit for some reason. It may be because I figured out the mystery sooner than I would have liked, but it did not take away from my enjoyment of the overall story.

I would definitely recommend this book to others and I give it 4 ½ stars!!!

Author Bio

I’m an actress, turned fitness instructor, turned author, with a degree in Theater Arts. “Temptation” is my first BDSM romance, but I also have another contemporary, erotic romance series out called “Swept Away.”

I grew up in Pennsylvania, one of six children. Yes, we are Catholic! My parents, Charles and Dorothy, always supported all of my creative endeavors, from acting to singing, and dancing. However, becoming an erotic novelist, was a bit of a shock to the system.

I’ve been living in Las Vegas for over eighteen years with my husband, Bill Johnson, and our adopted pooch, Harley. We originally moved here to work at Caesars Magical Empire. My husband and I were performers in show. But, I’ve also played Betty Boop at the MGM, and acted in musicals, plays, and commercials.

In addition to writing I teach four fitness classes a week. My limited spare time is usually spent at home with my hubby. We love to cook healthy meals together, drink wine together, and, clears throat, conduct extension “research” for my books. If I do venture out to a restaurant I splurge on my favorite dish, Mac and Cheese. I suppose you could say I’m a little like Jessica Blake. I give into, “Temptation.”
