Zero prospects. Check.
An eviction notice in hand. Check.
Life in shambles? Check. Check. Check.
Desperate to avoid living on my sister’s couch, I took a job in the one place I shouldn’t.
That's where I first saw him.
Elusive bad boy.
Owner of the hottest club in the city.
And apparently my new boss.
Temptation comes in many forms.
For me, it’s the way he looks at me.
The way he feels.
He’s my addiction.
I know I should keep my distance.
I could lose everything - even myself.
But I can’t.
And neither can he.
When faced with temptation or being evicted, Bailey chooses to work in the local night club. Two years sober, she does her best to do her job well and make it through another day clean. Drew, the owner of the club has his own demons. Fraternizing with the help is not on his agenda, but there is something about Bailey he cannot resist. Ava Harrison weaves a story emotionally driven with a few twists that keep us on the edge. Bailey is a phenomenal character. She is stronger than she thinks as she deals with her addiction and her budding relationship. Drew is complex and his past keeps him intriguing. The secondary characters add a lot of additional layers which add that bit of angst that I love about her books. It's gritty, real and the romance off the charts. Narrated by Andi Arndt and Joe Arden, the story flows with ease. This seasoned team knows how to make their characters bleed emotion and heal taking us with them on the journey. It was an emotionally charged listen and wonderful narration.
Learning to love yourself
Ava Harrison’s Tempted was exactly what I needed to listen to right now. The journey of love and healing these characters explored was uplifting. The chemistry and heat was ever present but the hope they shared from a past full of regrets was so inspiring. I stayed up most of the night to finish it. Do yourself a favor and listen to this now. Andi and Joe brought the story to life in a way that made you feel as if you were right there with them.
