"Lead us not into temptation..." Matthew 6:13
What happens when you fall in love with your best friend's father?
Leah is a good, Catholic girl, and she and Erica have been best friends since their first communion. Sure, Erica's father is handsome and charming, but Leah spends so much time at the Nolan's - just Erica and her famous, photographer father now, since Erica's mother died - that she's practically part of the family.
Both girls have led privileged, sheltered lives and are on the "good girl" track at St. Mary Magdalene's Preparatory College, Leah pursuing her love of dance and Erica sating her endless curiosity as editor of the newspaper. Neither of them could have ever imagined that one fateful discovery will not only push the boundaries of their strict, repressive upbringing, but the bonds of their friendship as well.
Leah certainly never could have imagined finding herself torn between her best friend and her best friend's father. Sure, Leah's mother had always talked about Mr. Nolan as "a catch," but Leah herself had never thought of him as anything other than just Erica's dad - until the girls discover something darkly erotic under Mr. Nolan's bed, a deep, shameful secret that will not only lead them into temptation, but will deliver them into a far greater revelation than any of them could ever have imagined.

I enjoyed the naughtiness of the book, but there's just something really skeevy about including the church and the friend of the dead wife. And to top it off the daughter is screwing her dad, and neither knew. Sex lies and videotape abound in this book. I need some holy water.
I love to read. Always have & always will. Audible makes it possible when I can't sit and read. Audio brings great stories to life!!!!
3.5 stars is what I would give this one. Temptation is definitely erotic and the chemistry between Leah and Mr Nolan is downright off the chains and so very hot that it's scorching. But the overall storyline in my opinion, dragged at times. Not enough to turn me off the series but just enough that I thought about not finishing the book, which as it turns out, would have been a mistake because it ended with a BANG!!!!
This could go down in history as a classic, like Flowers in the Attic. Amazing story, almost gothic, even though it's set in the 1950s. Forbidden love, intrigue, shock and awe, this is a twist and turn of a listen! Love this series!
