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?

This is a good book to read. It’s nice to see old characters from the other more than books make an appearance in this book. The love story is full of twists and turns but has a hea ending.
First Shayla Black read but won’t be my last!
While I was a little confused at the beginning of this story on what was going on, I quickly caught up and used context clues to figure it out, especially since I didn’t read the previous books in this series. While it’s not required, I feel that reading them probably would have given me better understanding into the characters and context surrounding the book and situation. Clint is reluctant to go home and is annoyed by his father’s persistence. Unfortunately, tragedy strikes in multiple ways, leaving Clint to pick up the pieces while figuring out what happened. Being scorned and out for revenge, he seeks justice by ruining what he thinks is the source of the tragedy – Bethany. After her father’s betrayal and manipulation, Bethany meets her siblings for the first time and attempts to bide her time and figure out her next move in life. When Clint finally finds Bethany, he exacts a plan to expose her and get the justice he so desperately needs, but as he gets to know Bethany and finds out bits and pieces of the situation that he was unaware of, he wonders if justice is being found in the correct place. When everyone’s truth is exposed, the big question is if Clint and Bethany come through it together. Overall, while I felt that the flow of the book dragged on and the climactic point was a bit sudden, it was a decent read. With that being said, I would definitely recommend reading the books prior in the series though.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
MORE THAN TEMPT YOU is the fifth book in the More Than Words series. This book can be read as a standalone although I recommend you read all the books in the series in order for some great story. Clint and Bethany story is a good story that makes since because when u lose a parent, especially unexpected you never know how someone will react. I absolutely love series so you can keep tabs on the other characters in the series. I can’t get enough of Harlow and Noah and you get some of them. Shayla Black never disappoints, and she didn’t here either.
