I romanced her for revenge…but what if she’s not the enemy after all?
I’m Clint Holmes. I was an ambitious guy with a busy life and a growing business. Sure North Dakota wasn’t a tropical paradise, but I was happy enough—until tragedy struck. Now the only thing that matters is finding the person responsible and making her pay. But Bethany Banks is a Harvard-educated shark used to swallowing her enemies whole while playing dangerous corporate games. How can a blue-collar oil man like me possibly beat her?
The moment I lay eyes on my beautiful nemesis, the answer is obvious. I seduce her.
On Maui, where she’s fled, I get to know the man-eater who caused my family so much pain…only to find she’s not the brazen ballbuster I assumed. She’s skittish, secretive, vulnerable. For some reason, my instinct is to protect her. I can’t abandon my plan…but I can’t stop wanting her. Night after night, I pry her open with my touch until I’m drowning in our passion. Soon, I’m questioning everything, especially the fine line between love and hate. But when the past comes back to wreak vengeance and the truth explodes, can I prove that I’m more than tempted to love her forever?

More Than Tempt You is a standalone in the More Than Words series. Each book focuses on one of the Barclay siblings, 3 brothers and 2 sisters. While this series has an overall theme of one father who has ruined their worlds in a different way, you do not have to read in order. You learn real quick in the beginning what Beth is dealing with.
If you have read any of the previous books, you do get a small introduction to Beth and it wasn't a flattering picture for her. After learning what kind of man their father was, it was no surprise he had at least one of the siblings fooled. What you learn in this book was just how he fooled her and how truly horrible this man is. I knew he was bad when the other siblings talked about him but in Beth's story, you get the worst of it.
Honestly it's surprising how Beth still has a good side to her after what her father forced her into over the years. You get a whole new Beth in this book. Her blindfold was ripped off and truths were revealed that left her reeling in the aftermath.
Clint wants revenge and he believes Beth deserves everything that's coming to her. He wants answers and he wants her to pay but that's hard to do when you can't find her. He gets a lucky break when a friend of his tells him he found her in Maui. Coming at her for answers hasn't worked so he has to devise a plan to sneak into her life to find the answers.
I'm usually on edge when one of the couple's is deceiving the other cause you know the truth will all come out in a disastrous way. That does happen, but it was also done in a way that made me love how they got to know each other. I don't see how it could have happened any other way with the situation they were in. It still took me a long time to like Beth but I loved Clint. Even with him being the deceiver, he was honorable and protected her even in the face of his anger.
This has been a really enjoyable series. I've loved getting to know all of these siblings and their journey to finding love in the face of the bitterness they all felt due to their father. It was great to see all of them and their significant others come together for Beth in this book. Great series!
