One more night…For almost a year, Madison has been Adam’s hook-up every time his band, Sole Regret, tours through Dallas. But in spite of the way he sets her body ablaze with passion, the occasional night of rock-her-world sex isn’t enough anymore. She needs a commitment and knows that won’t fit into Adam’s rock-star lifestyle. Madison will take one more hot-and-heavy night with the sexy musician before she cuts all ties with him for good. Even if she must break her own heart to do it.
To tempt him…Life isn’t all bright lights and fan adulation for the lead guitarist for Sole Regret. Madison has seen Adam at his worst and still managed to bring out the best in him. Her cleverly concealed naughty side also brings out the beast in him. He’s never met a more tempting woman in his life.
Madison has no problem tempting Adam into her bed, but can she tempt his heart into taking a chance on love?My Thoughts
A sequel to “Try Me,” “Tempt Me” is Olivia Cunning’s newest novel in the Sole Regret series. If you’ve read her other series, The Sinners, Sole Regret is almost a carbon copy just with different names. Still fun though and definitely something I wait impatiently on when I know there is a new one coming.
“Tempt Me” tells the story of Madison and Adam, a guitarist for the up and coming rock group, Sole Regret. Every time Adam goes through town, he calls Madison, his drug therapist from a past stint in rehab and they meetup. Adam has a past filled with drugs and women but with Madison he sees the sun. He sees the future. But Madison feels like he’s only using her and doesn’t understand what he sees in her.
Definitely a short novel, ringing it at a tad over 100 pages, there is a whole lot of story here. A past for both Adam and Madison, some pretty hilarious band member interactions and a romance that keeps you rooting. I enjoyed it, I sincerely did, yet I can’t help but feel the story left me hanging. The story had tons of potential, a bad boy rocker with a drug past and a small town therapist enthralled with a rock star. Suddenly it just stops and left me confused. A great buildup, and a fairly good execution yet the finale just plain stunk. Since this was the same complaint I had for “Try Me,” I was too surprised but still a bit disappointed.
When I finished “Tempt Me” I went to Olivia Cunning’s website to find out what’s coming up next for Sole Regret. From what I read, it looks like Adam and Madison will have another short story and perhaps finish the conflicts that are left hanging at the end. It appeased me and now I’m just counting down the days until the next Sole Regret novel. Try it to whet your appetite, just prepare to leave a wee bit hungry for dessert!
