Micah Hudson has painful secrets he's run hard from. He has new friends, a new life, but he's about to be confronted with the one person who reminds him of all he's tried to forget - Angelina, the sister of his oldest friend David. She knows everything about his past, including how he and David fell in love with the same woman, and how they decided the best way to prevent her from tearing them apart was to share her between them. But then a terrible accident left Micah alone....
Micah lost the two people who meant the most in the world to him. Angelina lost her only family. And she kept her deepest secret close to her heart. Her love for Micah. No longer willing to wait, she decides it's time to go after him and bring him to his knees. She knows his secrets, his desires, his kinks and fetishes, and she'll use whatever it takes to reel him in. Behind the easygoing, loves-women exterior lies a man with dark needs and passions. She can give him what he wants. But will he decide she's what he needs?

"Banks continues her Sweet series with a book that can stand alone but brings back earlier characters." (Romantic Times)
I like some of the other series books that Maya Banks has done, this series is just too out there with the sex scenes. I guess if you like that kind of thing you'd enjoy this book, but I just don't see the romance in sharing your girl with a bunch of guys, and compound the weirdness by drawing the scene out for almost 3 chapters. I skipped the sex scenes and found the story pretty good, if I could have skipped the weird thing with the other guys I would have really liked it.
My namesake in a book, cool! NOT! His treatment of her was just disgusting to me and she should have kicked his @@@ rather than take it hoping he would love her back someday. Despite the fuzzy ending this one I could barely finish. I keep going back to it hoping there would be some amazing twist that would make it all seem alright but it never happened. HATED this one.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
These Sweets are my guilty secrets - when I'm fed up with my usual listens like Victorian, Regency, Vampires, Werewolves, Highlanders et etc etc then I find myself drifting to a Maya Banks book for a change and...... what a change it is.
They're all a very hot listen (including BDSM and MMMMF) but with an interesting storyline running through them and they're filled with great sexy,handsome, alpha characters that certainly know what, how and who they are doing.
Worth a credit? Yes, and keep em coming Maya - (figuratively speaking that is) (although the other way works as well).
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Oh yes!!! If you can handle the heat, then YES!!!
I just love how she can draw you into the story. She has a great voice.
I could not turn it off. Great story, off the charts sex. WOW. The very best of fantasy listening.
I would strongly advise not to get if you are offended by sexual content. I have loved all the books in this series and I think it's worth my credit or purchase price!!
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Micha and Angelina story is soooooo goood!!! Wow... I did not read this series in order, and let me tell you, I am soo glad I went back to Micha. Loved him. He is so smexy. Wow... i even loved him all the other books too. An I love how Angelina went and got her man. Awesome. This book proves that you can get out of the friendship/sister zone in a big way. Totally worth the credit... Loved it. Loved it...
I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.
Yes Caroline gives a lot of depth to the people in and around the main couple
Yes it was I love all the books in this series and will listen to them again.
I was a little sad that the entire series wasn't available when I downloaded this so I started here. I wasn't dissapointed but I was shocked! I immediately feel in love with all the characters. The way they all seemed to embrace someone new into their circle.
The hot parts were hot and pinkened my cheeks. I don't blush easily but there were parts that made me whisper, "Holy heck! They are doing what?"
Worth the credit and I can't wait to read the entire series!
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
This book had the most sex scenes in it which was good some of them seemed pointless it was still hot.
The story is actually more like a 2.68 for me, but that's not an option. So I rounded up. I was hoping for a Lora Leigh-like type of erotic book. And this story is more erotica than romance too. But it's more hardcore than I like. Meaning, sexual pleasure is based largely on giving and accepting physical pain. And, though I don't have a problem with that sexual taste, it's just not what I like to listen to. But if it's up your alley, then this story is for you. The story was not just junk used to make room for sex acts; the story was ok on its own. It passed the fast-forward test (fast-forwarding just to get through the book and not thinking I'm missing anything) until the last 2 hours or so of the story, which is not bad. Lastly, the story is believable, which is always a plus. No problems with the narrator at all.
Great Books Don't Promote Violence
While I can't pretend to understand the dom/sub lifestyle, I have totally enjoyed some of Maya's Banks books for the engrossing characters she creates. However, some of the scenes in Sweet Temptation were just horrific; it's not okay to treat another person worse than an animal. One minute the characters, an extended group of close friends who consider themselves family, are humorous and caring. Next minute a supposedly caring man tells his friends to inflict as much pain as possible on a woman who loves him. Not cool!!!
