Recommended for ages 17+ due to sexual situations and language.
Sometimes being happily married and completely content is not at all what it seems.
That is what 35 year old, happily married mother of two, Alexis Summers finds out, when decides it is time to return to work. After being a stay-at-home Mum for the past nine years, Alexis now realises a complete career change is just what she needs.
She becomes a Concierge Attendant in a prestigious hotel in Melbourne working for the owner of the hotel, Bryce Clark. He resides in the penthouse, is extremely hot, and is a man who always gets what he wants, and what he wants is Alexis. She does a relatively good job resisting Bryce at first, but the undeniable chemistry, sexual tension and playfulness between the two of them is intense. He has copious amounts of money, sex appeal and above all, is a genuinely nice guy. Bryce has been waiting for his one true love to come along, and he is positive that one true love, is Alexis.
There is one problem, she is happily married to Rick, and no matter how strong her feelings are for Bryce, she is adamant she will not cheat. She draws a line in the sand, but finds it increasingly hard not to cross. Will she succumb to Temptation?

What a story! TEMPTATION is an intriguing novel with a lust-driven plot laced with a lot of humor. It's the first book in THE TEMPTATION series by new author K.M. Golland and I have to say that I was sucked into the story straight out of the gate!
At first glance, the decision Alexis Summers is faced with is simple, but as the story progresses, it is clear that things are not so "black and white." Alexis is totally content with her life as a 35 year old, happily married mother of two – well, she is until she encounters the charming and sexy hotel owner, Bryce Clark. When Alexis decides to return to work, her simple life suddenly becomes very complicated when faced with the ultimate temptation in the form of her very persuasive new boss – Mr. Clark.
I struggled with the overall plot of TEMPTATION and I had to keep reminding myself that this is a fictional book, but I couldn't help the stress I felt for Alexis. On one hand, I believe cheating is just wrong, no matter if we are talking about a test or a relationship, but the little devil inside my head really wanted Alexis to take the plunge and get down to business with the irresistible man who was not her husband.
Then, as I got to know her husband, Rick, I was screaming: "No! No! No! DON'T DO IT!" As a reader, I internalized the moral and ethical dilemma the very sweet and kind Alexis was faced with – it's easy to say what you would do when it's not happening to you. It's also much easier if one of the parties involved possesses traits undesirable to a mate, but none of these characters do! Alexis, Rick and Bryce, I loved them all!
So the BIG question is: What does she ultimately decide to do? TEMPTATION left me guessing until the very end. The wrap up left us with a very mild cliffhanger – not enough to entirely frustrate the reader, but just enough to make you want to dive into the next installment (tentatively set for an early March 2013 release).
