A stunning new novel featuring the characters from Temptation …
Have you ever thought you knew exactly where your life was headed?
Carly enjoys her carefree life — free from obstructions, free from drama, and free from anchors that tie her down to anyone or anything. She likes making her own decisions and not having to answer to anyone. Her life is good. Uncomplicated.
But Carly is set for a shake-up when she is introduced to Derek at her best friend’s birthday. Firefighter-Derek. Drop-dead-gorgeous-Derek. Blue-eyed-dirty-talking-cocky-as-hell-Derek. Their instant attraction has them both questioning their outlook on life, on relationships … and on love.
Attraction can be read as a stand-alone or after Attainment if reading in series order.
There is no doubt in my mind that KM Golland knows how to write. After reading my fifth book by her, there is now no doubt in my mind that KM Golland knows how to write amazing books!
Attraction is the fourth full length book in the Temptation series but can be read as a standalone as the book truly is all about Carly and Derek. Yes, Alexis and Bryce (*swoon*) make appearances but the sole focus is on our new hot couple in Melbourne.
By 20% in I was in love. And I told KM as much. Carly has such a unique way with words and I would quite happily just read a book full of her inner monologue and views on life.
Derek isn’t half bad either!
Oh, who am I kidding! I would slide down his pole any time. And up. And down. And up. And you get the picture. A singing, tattooed, buff fireman with an Australian accent. SIGN ME UP!!
The story isn’t something new but the way the story is told with these two characters is different. I loved that through all of her bravado and confidence, Carly was as girly and insecure as anyone and although Derek has an arrogant air about him (which, trust me, is oh so hot!) he has problems. We all do. And he doesn’t deal with them in the best ways. Well, what man does? Oh, and there is one heck of a pre-Carly tale. But still, it all made for a fantastic read.
Whenever they reached a stalemate in their relationship I read faster to find out what happens next, each chapter held promise for them but yet another roadblock popped up. By 80% when the bomb hit *BOOM* I was desperate for them to find their HEA but I was doubtful it would happen. It was a shattering bomb. But, Carly and Mr DIK came through but the joy was reading about how that came about. There may even be a mention or two of mint sauce!
Their interactions, their chemistry, their pure sexual lust for one another sizzled page after page making it such an enjoyable read despite the hardships they faced. The epilogue and then the extended epilogue were just the two luscious cherries on the top of this caramel infused ice cream sundae.
Thank you, KM, I’m thrilled you listened to your readers and wrote Carly and Derek’s story. Now. Please can we get Will and ‘Labia’s’ story next? Pretty pleeeaaase!
