Off-limits never looked so tempting...
Levi Cade—ex-firefighter and all-around man’s man—is thrust into the role of CEO of his family’s multi-million-dollar mountain resort, and he needs someone he can trust working at his side. When the perfect right-hand-man turns out to be the smart and hotter-than-molten Emily Wright, what’s a red-blooded bachelor to do?
Emily is a dream employee. But Levi’s dreams where she’s concerned are getting dirtier. And before Levi gets any ideas about seducing Emily, there’s one major dealbreaker: Emily is the little sister of Levi’s ex-girlfriend.
Hell no. Not happening.
The last thing Levi needs is another backstabbing Wright female in his life. But with her soft voice and smart business tactics, Emily is whipping the resort back in shape and charming everyone in the process—including Levi.
Levi shouldn’t touch Emily for any number of reasons. But he always did like playing with fire…

Jules Barnard puts the sparkle in this Lake Tahoe casino romance
Her 'Men of Lake Tahoe' series was my first introduction to Jules Barnard's perfectly pitched writer's voice. She has a warm and casually intimate style - a chat-over-coffee-on-a-rainy-morning-at-home style. Her characters in Tempting Levi are as real a the people you and your friends chat about, and she writes like she's one of them. Levi Cade may be the eldest and most angst-ridden son among the five Cade brothers, but Dad died and left him boss of the family casino business, and his brothers' futures. (Levi's a bit too into martyrdom for a genuine alpha, at first...). And MS. Emily Wright, his new Adm. Asst.- well she's his ex-fiancee's sister, and a player in a two-family brouhaha with history and hard feelings still intruding on the present. Plus, she's beautiful, and has all the right job qualifications, and she's so competent...and Levi's in trouble. This man sure can manufacture guilt, and Business-savvy-but-not-Man-savvy Emily sure knows how to misread the signs. Getting these two well-suited suits together in the bedroom as well as the boardroom is a considerable feat which the author pulls off with panache, and heat, and romantic tension in spades. Those familiar with the Early MoLT series will recognize cameo appearances from those stories (the novels share a close Lake Tahoe community setting), but Tempting Levi totally works as a standalone. Thank Hidden Gems for the ARC, and this is a voluntary and independent review.
