Review: Because You Tempt Me
Because You Tempt Me by Beth Kery
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
GoodReads Synopsis: Francesca Arno has been commissioned to create a grand centerpiece painting for the lobby of Ian Noble’s new skyscraper. It’s at a cocktail party in her honor that she first meets him—and the attraction is immediate for Francesca. It’s also bewildering. She’s not used to such a wholesale sexual response to a stranger. Enigmatic, darkly intense, with a commanding presence, Ian completely unnerves her. And she likes it.
For Ian, she’s the kind of woman he can’t resist—one that comes all too rarely: a true innocent. But he can sense in her a desire to open up, to experiment, to give herself to the fantasies of a man in control. The first kiss, the first caress, the first challenge for a woman who craves what she’s never had—a man who gets what he wants
My Thoughts: For some reason this was written in 8 installments and each installment is listed as an individual book in GoodReads. I did read all 8 installment but am only going to post on the first one.
Honestly, this book seemed like a copy of 50 Shades of Grey. The names, jobs, and ages were changed, but not a whole lot else. Now Beth Kery is a much better writer with a whole lot more books under her belt, but I just couldn’t shake how much this reminded me of 50 Shades.
I don’t know if this is going to be a series or if this was a stand alone book. Regardless, if you liked 50 Shades and want more just like it, here is one to add to your reading list.
