Ms Day I love love love all your books and cannot wait for the next one to be released...... but do you realise I can't get my work done properly, my family's living on take-outs and I've now become an insomniac. If you like sexy Georgian romance listens then my tale shows you just how addictive this series is as once you start listening you just won't want to stop.
This is another captivating story but this time it's about an evil villain, mistaken identity, three romances - one's heartbreaking, one's fiery and one's about forgiveness. They all have passion, tension, deception, danger, seduction, betrayal and lots and lots of sex by brilliant characters that you sympathise and empathise with. Not really a stand alone listen as most of the characters have parts in previous books.
Worth a credit? Yes, but as I've said before, they are all very reasonably priced so splash your cash sit back and enjoy. But a word of warning - get all your work done first and pre-prepare your meals!!

This book is fine if you don't mind the following:
1. A complicated storyline
2. A further complication of French names that are slightly similar (twins called Lynette and Lysette who get confused for each other and you as a listener get confused even though you never see them! also two important male characters De Garnier and De Jardin... these sound slightly similar to me)
3. A narrator who puts an inflection on every single sentence she says. Argh
4. Several romances going on at the same time, none of them fully developed in a convincing way.
I love Sylvia Day, but sometimes she does not develop the romance in a satisfying manner, and this was one of those cases where there was too much else going on in the story, and too many different romances... I would have loved to see what happened to both twin sisters in more detail, rather than hear all about the other elements of the plot in such detail.
I read all sorts of novels, not just romances, and it is my belief that very few romance authors do a good job of the "side story". Sylvia Day, Nora Roberts and Lisa Kleypas all SOMETIMES succeed - but this book was not an example of that.

What did you love best about Don't Tempt Me?
The multiple levels of intregue and numerous characters, interwoven to provide an absolutely wonderful plot.
What other book might you compare Don't Tempt Me to and why?
I have not found a romance/erotica that compares to Don't Tempt Me. Multiple plots and multiple couplings leave this book on a level of its own!
What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Justine Eyre's narration brought the characters to life. I could not have imagined such a varying of voices and accents.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The culmination of the drama had me on the edge of my (car) seat! I was thankful for traffic, so that I did not have to sit in the driveway to finish. My husband would have interupted and I would have been angry.

i enjoyed this series by Sylvia Day but i think i enjoyed the last book best, not near as much sex in it compared to the 3rd book but more normal or believable. i enjoyed following all the characters through out the series and all in all it was a good story from book to book once i got past the narrator but to be truthful by the end of the 4th book the narrator no longer annoyed me. don't know if it was because i was used to her by then but it kind of scared me, maybe i'm listening to too may audible books!

From the last few books, I have loved Simon Quinn. He is a good man and he is always willing to fight for what he believes in. Lysette is stuck in a situation that she has no control over and no memory past two years. This book has to be the best mystery/ adventure of the series. I was caught up in the espionage and wanted to know everything about the families and what was going to happen next. This book is work the listen too, but if you are only interested in the sex, this book carries more weight on the plot than the exploits. But there is the same chemistry and intense love affair that you would find in Sylvia's books.
I enjoyed every minute of this book. I have listened to it more than once now and is on my read again list. I have to say that Justine Eyre's ability to perform in many accents and provide such emotion through the words is truly a gift. She is one of my favorite narrator. Thanks to Sylvia Day and Justine Eyre for their brilliant collaboration.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Justine Eyre is a wonderful narrator and makes all the Georgian books come to life. I would defiantly recommend.
Would you be willing to try another book from Sylvia Day? Why or why not?
I enjoy all the Georgian series, I can't put them down. I need to pace myself, I have her last book to read and will be listening this weekend.

Justine Eyre perfect, the last installment as good as the first, loved it, very enjoyable!
I loved this book it was as fantastic as always the narrator did a brilliant job
I did not think I would be into Simon’s story from hearing a little about him and Maria in the previous book but boy was I wrong! I really loved this story and Simon. SD has got it and flaunts it all over the place with each and every novel she brings out.
This is without doubt one of my favourite Sylvia day novels. The whole Georgian collection has been brilliant, but this one is the best. I admit I was confused for the first hour not knowing how the first chapter was anything to do with Simon and the rest of the book. Just keep reading and all will be explained by the end. With great plot twists and the usual hot romance scenes, this book had me enthralled to the very end x
What would have made Don't Tempt Me better?
I didnt like the time it was set in and to obvious story that had some complicated twists put in that did enhance the story
Has Don't Tempt Me put you off other books in this genre?
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Justine Eyre?
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
I loved the cross fire stuff but this was disappointing
