Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author W Winters comes an emotionally-gripping, romantic suspense.
 

I fell for someone I shouldn’t have.
I’m not the only person to ever do such a thing. I know that. And I’m not an awful person for desiring his touch, his kiss, his everything...but I knew I shouldn’t have indulged.
There’s something about knowing it’s wrong that tempts me that much more. The seduction became a game with higher stakes than any before him. In fact, it was only ever him.
The thing is, I knew I shouldn’t. Now that the game is over and the pieces have fallen...I know I should have just walked away.
There’s no way out of the wreckage.
That doesn’t change the fact, that I wanted him more than anything. I still want him more than anything. 

Tempted to Kiss is book three in a series. Hard to Love (book one) and Desperate to Touch (book two) must be listened to first.

I need more!!

This is the third book in the Hard to Love Series, a romantic suspense. This series is addictive!! Seth and Laura's story continues where the last book ended. The storyline is filled with suspense, mystery and intrigue. And that ending!! Now, I need the next and last book in the series, Easy to Fall, to know what happens next! Joe Arden and Samatha Cook did an amazing job with the narration.

Amazing Story! Willow Is A Gifted Author!

Really Willow what are you doing to me? How much more can Seth and Laura's relationship take? All the things that have happened to them along the way. All heartache and emotions they have gone trough at times have me drained by the time I get through the book. Don't get me wrong I love every part of it! The connection and devotion these two have is wonderful. Laura can't stay away even knowing who Seth is deep down and what he has done. Seth will do anything he can to keep Laura safe and with him. As always Willow has to leave us with our minds blown, wanting to know how did we not see that coming at the end of the book. Begging for more of Seth and Laura's story and praying that they can finally find their HEA in this Merciless World. Waiting on pins and needles for Easy To Fall.

Joe Arden and Samantha Cook are wonderful as Seth and Laura.

WOW what a Phenomenal Ride

This series is one of Willows BEST. Seth & Laura's love has been a rollercoaster that just doesn't let up.
The deep soul loving they share is one you want to grab and never let go of.
There's suspense, love and yes even hate at times, but no matter what they atick it out cause of the true love they share.
I can't wait to read more this year on Seth & Laura..
Just a note that the narrators on audio bring you in so deep it feels like you have a front row seat.

What in the world....

Holy mother of cliffhangers. I’m speechless. I was finally happy with the progression of Seth and Laura’s, like super ecstatic and then BOOM!! Curve ball. Willow is amazing at cliffhangers and keeps readers/listeners on the edge of their seats!! All I can say is I am drawing some conclusions and can’t wait to see if I’m close when the next book comes out and puts me out misery.

Oh. My. Goodness.

I can’t even begin to describe my feelings over Tempted to Kiss. I’m in love yet heartbroken all at the same time; both Seth & Laura have me all in the feels. I can’t say I’ve ever loved characters in a book more than I do these two. I definitely took an emotional roller coaster with reading this, March cannot come quick enough.

Seth & Laura

Just when I thought things were going to wind down and I was going to be satisfied with my happily ever after, Willow Winters sucked me in on an action packed, angsty, dark listen and left me wanting . We pick up where book two left off, and begin to see the possibilities of Seth and Laura. There are a multitude of secrets, and difficulties that lie ahead, but we are rooting for these two! And then, in true Winters's fashion, she hits us with an unknown that left me speechless. It's so dark and delicious, and has left me unfulfilled needing to know the outcome! This is another incredible segment of their story.

Narration continues by Joe Arden and Samantha Cook as we delve deeper into the lives of Seth and Laura. I love the continuity of their voices, letting us know our characters intimately.

I got Willow’d!

Firstly I am absolutely loving Joe as Seth and Sam as Laura. At first I wasn’t sure but as I get further into the series the more I see what these two narrators bring to each character and secondary characters.


Willow Winters throws me through a tunnel of emotions and plot twists I didn't see coming.

I'm still reeling from everything that transpired throughout this book. One thing I can say is that this author never disappoints... And as much as I want to curse her out right now, I also want to bow down to her. She is a genius and a master at her craft and she has mastered this world and continues to blow me away with each book that releases.

I was a mess... Especially that ending. It cut like a damn knife and now,... Now we wait... But I know one thing for sure! She will make the wait worth it.

I'm going in for round two, but I knew the moment I closed the book on the first round that I wouldn't be able to keep away... and well to be fair. It was a given I was going in for a second hit when it comes to anything Willow Winters.



AND Willow, Why? WHAT THE HELL, WILLOW!?.... You know what you did... You broke my heart!


Gahh...I honestly don't know where to begin with this. I want to scream but cry, and curl up into a sobbing ball... I was not prepared for what I got. In no way was I. I knew this was going to knee me in the gut but Jesus Christ... the emotions that surround this entire book were pulling hard on my heartstrings.

Tempted to Kiss picks up where Desperate to Touch left off and Seth and Laura are trying to work out where they are going in this relationship, and it seeming to be harder than expected. Nothing about the world they both live in is easy and this relationship isn't about to be either. Seth has started to open up on how he feels about Laura and admit and realizing what his feelings for this girl are and what they mean. Laura is keeping secrets, which could ultimately mean game over for them... Seth is doing what he can to keep Laura, and to keep her from leaving him...


AND THAT ENDING... Yeah, I'm back to that... Ms. Winters, are you trying to kill me?
My heart... My heart is hurting and I don't know how I am meant to be feeling right now...
I did not expect that ending... And I feel like I have been throat and gut-punched so damn hard and this is days after reading it.


I want to dive deeper but I also believe you need to go through each and every emotion when you read this. This is a continuation from Desperate to Touch and you do have to read this series from the start.

You all think you are ready for this..... YOU ARE NOT!!!


I can't recommend this enough.

Willow Winters has a way with her words that completely pull me in from the start and keep me locked in till long after I've finished the book. Her words are those that stay with you. Whether it is a sentence or an entire scene. It's hard to forget this author's words and Tempted to Kiss is no different. It was addictive, all-consuming, enticing, intense and unpredictable and I just don't think 5 stars is enough!

Can I breathe yet?

Seth and Laura have been through so much already. I just keep hoping for their happy ending, but I will be waiting even longer. WIllow once again leaves us hanging on the edge as we wait for the next installment. There was so much going on in this installment, I was not able to put it down. But that twist will hit you like a brick wall and make you question everything you thought you may have figured out. WIllow has such a way with words to drag her readers into a story and not let them go. Tempted to Kiss is one intense ride for Seth and Laura, and the readers. I just hope we all catch our breathe with the next book.

It was like this book was written for Joe Arden and Samantha Cook to narrate. They bring out the best and the very worst of each character. It is their narration that brings this story to life. Mr. Arden is an amazing Seth. Rugged and strong, Mr. Arden makes Seth everything I imagined him to be. Ms. Cook brings out the strong qualities in Laura. These are so important in this story. Ms. Cook truly captured the unique character that Laura is.
