My Thoughts: First things first, the abs on that cover model are gorgeous.... *sigh*. Okay so we have another book from Nicole Edwards that I like so much better than all the others.
The Story: This book picks up right where Temptation left off, and overlaps a few events in Addicted. It follows Ashleigh, a friend of Samantha and Sierra from the previous books, and Alex, a friend of Logan, Luke, and Cole from the previous books. We saw him on the sidelines in the previous books, but never had much interaction with him. Now, he gets his own story.
Alex has been into Ashleigh for a long time, but as she is 12 years younger than him, he had stayed away for a while. Now though, they're both grown up, she's moved back to town, and he can't stay away. He has secrets though, ones that she may not like, and she has some as well, ones that may make him look differently at her if he knew. This story is so much better than all the others because there are more challenges to overcome, more storyline, and there's more buildup.
Narration: Ava Erickson and Patrick Leigh were the best narrators of this series so far. They seemed to get into the moods of the story, though I liked Patrick a bit more because Ava sounded a bit strange when she was trying to make the male voices. Still, the pacing was good, and I really liked them as narrators.
Verdict: I give this one 3.5 stars. I really liked that though it was definitely erotica, there was more to the story than just the sex, at least at the beginning, and all the side stories were actually needed for this storyline. I do believe the story itself was a bit too long. There was a point where practically all the challenges were overcome, but there was still a ton of story left, and it seemed the author couldn't help but give us more heated scenes. Then an issue came back around and it made the story seem a little unbalanced. Still, the story was good. I was thinking about stopping after the previous novella, but decided to give this one a chance. I liked this one more than all the others in the series, and it gave me more hope to continue the series.
