She’s the woman he loves to hate.
Penn Foster wants a lot of things. She wants a spot on the board of a charitable foundation. She wants to win the stupid, plastic family trophy. And more than anything, she wants her tall, hot, and brooding boss naked in her bed. Now, on a Hawaiian vacation with her family, she’s desperately trying not to think about how he’d sound whispering dirty things in her ear.
He’s the man she can’t have…or can she?
Cole Murphy keeps himself locked down, away from the press and out of the spotlight. Still haunted by a traumatic childhood, his ability to trust has been decimated. Penn, with her sexy body and confidence, is the only person able to drag him out of his shell. Which is why he crashes her vacation and accepts her proposition for no-strings sex. But is the inescapable heat building between them a delicious temptation, or will it end in total disaster?

Penn and Cole have worked together for 3 years. When Penn goes on her yearly family "vacation", Cole shows up to help her win the trophy but when he gets there, he sees a different version of Penn than he is use to. Normally, Penn is loud and a little wild but around her family, she is q... ...more
Recipe for Temptation is an enjoyable finale to Gina Gordon's Madewood Brothers series. It's not my favourite of the four, but she has brought us an endearing couple with a good chemistry, a fun and frustrating storyline and who don't scrimp on the sexy-time when they finally give in to one anoth... ...more
