THE SWEETEST TEMPTATION is a cleverly written, well paced story with a hint of humor that makes the character gleam with polished perfection! ~ Under the Covers

Lion shifter Andrew Paige wakes up in a motel room with no memory of how he got there. What’s even more frightening is the fact that the police are blaming him for the kidnapping of a woman he has never even heard of.

Erica Ware is a wood nymph and on a full moon, she and her sister must troll the area looking for someone to mate with if only to hold back the madness that occurs when the moon is big and bright. Erica is desperate to find her sister, Keira and when she is faced with Drew, the man whom the state police suspect is the kidnapper, she uses her unique abilities to obtain the truth.

I was very impressed by the way Bonilla tackled this shifter short. I was immediately drawn in by the mystery and confusion Drew felt in the opening scene. It hooks the reader right in and draws them deeper and deeper.

Bonilla also nicely gives her characters enough depth that they seem genuine and real. This is a tough feat especially in such a tight word count. I loved Drew and Erica as individuals, but loved them more together as a couple. They had such potent chemistry that I wouldn’t mind seeing further explored in a full length book!

As the second book in the series, I would highly suggest readers start with the first book in the series, THE SWEETEST TORTURE. The stories connect and would greatly benefit the reader if read in the order they are released in.

THE SWEETEST TEMPTATION is a cleverly written, well paced story with a hint of humor that makes the character gleam with polished perfection!

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 ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

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!
