What happens when the boy you've wanted your whole life finally wants you back?

I'm used to taking what I want, being the best at what I do. During the day, I make big bucks as New York's premiere consultant. At night, I can get any girl I lay my eyes on. I thought this life was what I wanted: working hard and playing harder--with penthouse apartments, luxury cars and bottle service every weekend. After six years in the city, I know I've been living like a monster for too long. I need to get my act together. I need to find something real. I need to come home.

LA means family and a fresh start. My parents and my friends who are close enough to be siblings.

And Melina.

Melina is nerdy smart, with a challenging sense of humor and legs for miles. It's so hard to describe her...enigmatically beautiful. I’m sure there’s a word for it in French. But I know there's a naughty girl hiding behind that shy smile that I'm dying to drag out.

There was always something between us. I never forgot her laugh, never could get her off my mind. Nobody ever seemed to notice how my body would react when I was near Melina, how much more focused I became—maybe not even Melina herself. But this time it’s different.

The more time we spend together, the more I wonder if there was something there all along. After so long in the fast lane, I don't know if I can handle settling down. But seeing Melina's passion, I'm tempted beyond belief.

I have to admit it: temptation is hard to resist.

I absolutely adored reading Temptation by J.D. Hawkins. A friends-to-lovers romance with all the right kind of feels. Friends for as long as they can remember, can Wyatt show Melina what they can have together? And is Wyatt ready for more?

After living the crazy life for years, Wyatt is ready for a change and maybe more. So, he decides to go home and home means seeing Melina again. I loved Melina! She was quiet, but also funny and smart. Wyatt was great at bringing her out and now that they are spending more time together, realize there is may be something more there. They had a great friendship and chemistry!

Their families have been life-long friends and they share a lot of memories but are Wyatt and Melina ready to share more?  Temptation was just such a sweet and charming story with great characters. J.D. Hawkins is definitely a must-read author for me and one I highly recommend reading. I devoured this story!

I go dizzy, feeling so faint I need to close my eyes for a minute before I can do anything but bask. Wyatt strokes my hair slowly, the rough-but-cool touch of his hands bringing me back to life, and when I open my eyes I see him lying there beside me.

Suddenly the haze clears and I feel my stomach sink like a stone. The full magnitude of what just happened forming like a beast on the horizon.

“Oh god…I can’t believe we just…” I mumble.

“Yeah…” Wyatt replies with a lazy grin. “We did.”

The anxiety comes fast, flooding into that empty space left by orgasm.

Wyatt. My childhood crush. A friend I share with our families, our entire group. My new, albeit temporary, boss. As amazing as it felt in the moment, the myriad ways in which this was a horrible idea come out from wherever they were hiding an hour ago.


How could I be so reckless?

And how the hell are we going to keep this a secret?
