Tempt Me is Gabriel’s story. I’ll admit, he can be such a jerk sometimes. In fact, I didn’t like him at first. He was standoff-ish, clearly distressed and tortured about something, but I didn’t know why. Alexander crafts an intriguing hero in Gabriel. There’s a big mystery surrounding him and I was dying to know what it was. In the end, I found that I loved his dark possessiveness. Loved his barely contained demeanour and loved him during the sex scenes.
Angelique was a little harder for me to like. I didn’t hate her, but just thought that she was an okay heroine. It wasn’t until the end of the book that I thought, hey this chick is cool. I loved the fact that she wasn’t resistant to Gabriel’s demands. Whatever he wanted, she gave. And it takes a strong person to give so willingly. I had to admire that in Angelique.
And there’s also Emmanuel, Gabe’s “friend” who always seems to be there in the most heated of times. I loved him and thought his restraint was endearing. Untouched and unable to act, he was an interesting character to put into the mix with Angelique and Gabriel. I very much enjoyed his presence in the book.
Familiar faces return and I loved reading about BD once again. He has some inspiring quotes in this one which only makes me love him more!
If you liked Possess Me, then you’ll love Tempt Me. With Alexander’s ability to write sinfully decadent scenes, I devoured this book a little too quickly.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
