Release Day Review: "Tempt Me Too" by Stacy Eaton


Sara Hawthorne is a dedicated attorney, a loyal wife, and the mother of two nineteen-year-old girls. When her husband succumbs to cancer, Sara has to battle the grief and also the addiction to which one of her daughters falls prey. 

Maximus Tempest is business driven—and family starved. Eager to get his estranged wife to sign the divorce papers so he can move on with his life, he is frustrated when she is taken to the hospital after overdosing and wants no part of her treatment. 

When Sara and Max see each other for the first time in twenty years, old feelings spring to life, but with the whirlwind of problems that surround them, how could it possibly work? Secrets are revealed from the grave that could threaten any future they might have, and it will be up to Sara and Max to see if they can overcome the lies—or if they must bury their dreams of a relationship forever.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

My Review:
Tempt Me Too is a wonderful second chance at first love story. The author had this reader reaching for the tissues early as I was fully invested with Sara's relationship with her husband early. After his death, the chapters alternate between Sara and Max, each time drawing them a bit closer together, making this reader turn the pages faster, wanting to find the time when they find each other again. Sara and Max's reunion is explosive but it takes no time before real life interrupts them and their potential future is threatened. How many challenges can one couple face and still find their happily-ever-after? Well, Sara and Max answer that question. 

I love the secondary characters the author introduces - Tina and George, their best friends, and Alexis and Kelsey, Sara's daughters. Each provides a unique role in Sara and Max's reunion and everything they navigate on the way to their happily-ever-after.

There are no open-door sex scenes but intimacy is definitely included. A must read and a great new addition from Stacy Eaton.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
