"This series just gets better with each book."

Jakes life as he knew it ended a year ago when he was accidentally nicked by a werewolf. He had been rock climbing when he fell and was badly injured. A pack of werewolves found him and dragged him to safety, but in the process, one of them accidentally grazed him with his teeth. Now, he doesn't know if he should love them for saving his life, or hate them for taking his humanity. When he goes back to the ranch to learn more about his pack and who and what he is, he finds so much more than he thought possible. During a pack hunting trip, they find Allison, who fell from a cliff and is in need of help. Jake rescues her and takes her back to his cabin at the ranch. Now, his beast is chomping at the bit, wanting out to claim Allison, but Jake has to hold back. Until they are threatened by an enemy, then he has no choice. In order to save them all, he must unleash his beast, even if it means losing Allison.

The Temptation is the fourth book in the Forbidden series. If it is even possible, each book has been better and better. I fell in love with Jake quickly. He is a young college boy from Texas and has the southern charm to go with it. He is at war with himself and his inner beast, and I was rooting for him to come to terms with the wolf, so he can become what he is destined to become.

Allison is a strong lady, just coming out of a very bad marriage. She is the perfect match for Jake and I very much enjoyed watching these two meet in passion, butting heads all the way.

The Temptation brings back a couple of the people from past books, tying them all in. Samantha Somersby is doing a superb job, starting out with Ren and Violet in the first two books, and building upon them, their family, and their circle of friends. I can't wait until the fifth book and hate that it will be fall before I can reconnect with all of these people that I have come to think of as friends.

Sometimes…temptation can be a good thing

A year ago, Jacob Madison got more than he bargained for during a rock-climbing trip to Yosemite. A freak accident left him badly injured, at the mercy of the elements—and the wolves who rescued him. If it hadn’t been for them, he’d be dead. He’d also still be human. Now he’s back, hoping to find out who he is and what he’s become. Instead, he finds smart, sexy Allison Connelly.

A forensic psychologist, Allison is newly divorced and proudly standing on her own two feet…until an unexpected storm shears off the snow bank she’s standing on. She plunges down an icy ravine, thinking she’s heading for oblivion. Then she lands in the arms of a tall, dark Texan. Jake.

Brought together by circumstance and bound by passion, secrets from their past threaten their future before it can begin. And somewhere in the mountains lurks a rogue Were turned serial killer. Whatever the danger Jake’s inner beast poses to Allison, there’s only one way to protect her—unleash it. Even if it costs him her love.

Warning: This book contains raging winter storms, truly inspiring sex, a kick-butt heroine, and one very hot, dirty-talking cowboy…who’s sometimes furry.

Genre:Paranormal Romance; Erotic; Shapeshifters; Urban Fantasy
