Peek Inside Tempting Adam

Christy Wallace is a buttoned-up Spanish teacher by day and a salsa dance instructor by night. When she promises one of her friends she’ll pose as his girlfriend, she doesn’t think a little game of pretend would be too complicated.

Adam Young is all cowboy. He’s also the owner of Adam’s Apples, the fastest-growing cider business in eastern Washington. But that’s something he doesn’t share with people he meets, including the hot dance instructor he’s been fantasizing about.

But he realizes he’s not the only one with a few secrets when Christy walks in to a family event on the arm of his brother.

This was a well-written book, with some hot moments between the H/H. I liked the hero, Adam, and for the most part I liked the heroine, Christy, but I really had a problem with Adam's brother (and Christy's best friend) Nate, and that really affected my enjoyment of this story.

Christy Wallace is a 2 ...more

This was a very easy and quick, very hot (not quite erotic), romance set in Seattle. It very loosely ties to the first in this series in that the coffee shop and owner were in this--briefly--for two coffee purchases. Other than that, this could be a stand-alone.

Some parts of the book frustrated me ...more

This is a spicy romance that I enjoyed reading. Christy's gay best friend, Nate, has begged her to pretend to be his girlfriend when his family comes to visit. As expected, the results are disastrous.

I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick read with sexy love scenes. The two main characters Adam and Christy complimented each other perfectly. I am looking forward to reading more from this author. I would recommend this book.

Tempting Adam by Shelli Stevens...Its the story of 2 best friends and what happens when one lies for the other but that causes a little bit of confusion and heartache.

3.75 Stars - I enjoyed this romance. The hero is great even though he’s fighting with himself for most of the story. The heroine is nice and beautiful and not conceited at all, but wimpy. More specifically, she is a doormat for her gay best friend, who also happens to be a selfish jerk. He takes ful ...more

This was a very enjoyable book with a sweet love story and hot sex. I liked both Adam and Christy. But his brother, her best friend, annoyed me! He was an incredibly selfish guy and it really bothered me that he put his own desires above his brother and friend's when he saw that his subte ...more
