[Blog Tour + Giveaway] Temptation by Inara Scott

Review

Temptation by Inara Scott is about the friendship-slash-repressed attraction between Zoe Riva, a bold and smart lawyer who wants her rightful place in a world dominated by men, and Connor Ashton, a tall yet reserved tech guy who is also one of the founders of Livend Capital. This attraction grows into something explosive, and the next thing I know, I was going emotional over this book. Two broken and complicated souls who found themselves in love with each other sound cliche but if you give this one a chance, you definitely won’t regret it.

First of all, I loved that this book is feminist. From Zoe’s headstrong demeanor to the GPG’s (Geriatric Physicist Grannies) strong and caring nature. All of the male characters looked at Zoe as an equal, and they never did once doubt her ideas and skills. There were times when they warned her to not proceed with some endeavors, but not because they did not believe in her. Those warnings were out of concern.

Second, this book had a good mix of light and heavy matters. I wasn’t actually expecting anything from this one other than it being steamy, but it surprised me in a good way. Aside from the sexy scenes, things like running a business, motorcycles, cold fusion, whiskey, forgiving others as well as yourself, were also discussed and I learned a lot.

Lastly, I found it so easy to connect with the main characters. Their back stories made them more relatable and I loved how the plot developed though it did not get exciting until the middle part.

I’m giving it a rating of 3 out of 5 stars. It would have been a 4 if not for the occasional typos. I recommend this book to suckers for romance and a little bit of smut. This is the second installment for the Bad Angels series but it can be read as a standalone.

[Review] THE MCCOYS BEFORE THE FEUD by Thomas McCoy, 2/5

This review first appeared on and was written forย OnlineBookClub.org. It has been slightly edited here and the rating has been adjusted for a 5-star system, which is more common.

This book is about a family’s passion and cooperation. It was interesting at first, but when the outcome of the succeeding events turned out to be the same as the last ones, I knew this was something I won’t enjoy.

The McCoys were a group of kinfolk from the South who wanted to reclaim the riches stolen from them by the Northern soldiers during the war in the late 1800s. Tommy, together with his father, Thomas Sr., led the rest of the men in this pursuit. This book was written by a direct McCoy descendant and I think he has done well on his research. The names of the characters and the war itself were real, but the raids and the rest of the story, however, were fictional. 

To be honest, I was never a fan of historical fiction so I tried to pick this one for a change. I think I will be reading more historical fiction from now on but I hope the next ones I read would not be as predictable as this one. I would still recommend this book though, especially to those who like strategy and action. I believe others may find it more exciting than I did.

[Review] THE REEL SISTERS by Michelle Cummings, 5/5

This review first appeared on and was written forย OnlineBookClub.org. It has been slightly edited here and the rating has been adjusted for a 5-star system, which is more common.

Wow! After reading a 1-star book before this, I’m so happy that this is the exact opposite and is a whopping 5-star read. I’ve finished this book several hours ago but I’m still in awe right now, while writing this review.โฃโฃ โฃโฃ

The Reel Sisters is about five amazing women who do not give up on life no matter how awful it gets. Sure, they had their down times but they all took their time to get back up and showed life who’s boss. This book also teaches you about fly fishing, a catch-and-release kind of fishing, which I knew nothing about prior to reading this. This book will make you miss picking up a new hobby and hanging out with your dearest friends.โฃโฃ โฃ

While reading along, I couldn’t help but sort the five protagonists into Hogwarts houses. Is it weird or does anyone else do this? Please tell me I’m not alone.โฃโฃ โฃ

Sophie, the determined planner, who makes everyone else’s sake a priority, is definitely a Gryffindor. Veronica, the feisty CEO, is no doubt a Ravenclaw. Rose and Amanda who are both loyal, caring, and cheerful, are cute Hufflepuffs. Last but not the least, Melody, the angsty rebel, is of course, the Slytherin in the group.โฃโฃ

โฃโฃTW: death, stalking, depression
