Shocking discoveries rock the Adairs…and a determined librarian can't help falling for one of this dynasty's rugged heroes!
It's true that money can't buy happiness. Librarian Georgia Mason has seen one wealthy Adair ruin her stepmother's life and swears she won't get involved with his son Carson. So what if he's a hot former special ops soldier who showers her with extravagant gifts? But he is the sexiest man she's ever met and it's hard to hate him for searching for his long-lost stepbrother, or tracking down the traitor behind his botched mission. And when Georgia faces life-threatening danger, Carson protects her, igniting their scorching passion. Maybe love of money isn't the root of all evil. Maybe there's more to Carson to trust, respect…and love.
I could not put The Marine’s Temptation down. Why have I not been reading The Adair Affairs Series?
Georgia Mason knows the Adair’s are trouble. She’s see the damage they’ve caused firsthand and has guarded herself against them. Although she’s not prepared for Carson Adair, the sexy ex-special ops marine who seems to fancy gifting her with extravagant things. She knows she shouldn’t get involved with him but when they danger threatens during the search for his missing brother, she finds herself falling in love with an Adair.
Carson isn’t the typical Adair. Rather than rolling in his family’s wealth and opulence, he joined the Marines, although a botched mission has left his wounded with a traitor trailing after him.
There’s an edge to Carson that I loved. He’s conflicted about joining the family business and also a bit confused about the fact his father kept quiet about his missing brother. It wasn’t until his death that he started to get to know the man his father had been so there’s a lot going on in Carson’s life at the moment.
Georgia was such a fun heroine to read. She knows what the Adair’s are capable of so she’s determined to put up walls when Carson’s around and it made for some interest moments throughout the book. She also has a few secrets she’s carrying around that also has her on edge around Carson, so it was nice to see that he took the time to break through her defenses.
They also had amazing chemistry that leapt off the pages, which was good because this book—although romantic suspense—was heavy on the romance.
The suspense aspect of the book was on the light side although it held my attention. While I wasn’t shocked to discover who the baddie was, I was shocked to see some of the twists and it was interesting to see the both characters facing something.
Overall, I loved this book. At the start, the plot ebbed and flowed but it evened out in the middle and stayed strong to the end. I’m looking forward to catching up with this series and seeing the outcome.
