Book Description

6 April 2010 Heat
FROM "NEW YORK TIMES" BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE BREATHLESS TRILOGY MAYA BANKS
He was a by-the-book cop who broke the rules in the bedroom...
Micah Hudson has painful secrets he's run hard from. He has new friends, a new life, but he's about to be confronted with the one person who reminds him of all he's tried to forget--Angelina, the sister of his oldest friend David. She knows everything about his past, including how he and David fell in love with the same woman, and how they decided the best way to prevent her from tearing them apart was to share her between them. But then a terrible accident left Micah alone...
She was willing to do anything to make him see the woman she'd become...
Micah lost the two people who meant the most in the world to him. Angelina lost her only family. And she kept her deepest secret close to her heart. Her love for Micah. No longer willing to wait, she decides it's time to go after him and bring him to his knees. She knows his secrets, his desires, his kinks and fetishes, and she'll use whatever it takes to reel him in. Behind the easygoing, loves women exterior lies a man with dark needs and passions. She can give him what he wants. But will he decide she's what he needs?

Warning: contains some small spoilers

"Sweet Temptation" by Maya Banks is an awesome book that combines great characters, a sweet love story and all kinds of hot and kinky sex.

When Angelina comes back into Micah's life to spend it with him forever he couldn't be more shocked. The last time he saw her was shortly after his beloved wife Hannah and his best friend David (Angel's brother) died in a car accident. Back then he decided to leave Miami and to build a new life in Houston. So when he sees Angel again he's shocked because she is no longer just a girl but one sexy and sensual woman. But he doesn't want anything beyond friendship with her because for him she's still the little sister of his best friend. Saying no to sexy Angel might be hard but Micah still manages it (mostly!).
However when Angel and people close to Micah are attacked and threatened by a dangerous stalker who followed Angel all the way from Miami he can't stand back any longer. He offers her security and a short sexual relationship in which he will fulfill all her dreams. Angel has a sexuality to match his own so she loves all Micah gives her (pleasure through pain, sex with Micah and some of his friends, total submission to him) but she still hopes that soon he will return her love. Because without his love all the pleasure feels meaningless. In the end it's up to Micah to realize that it's time to move on from the past and take a new chance to love.

I enjoyed reading "Sweet Temptation" by Maya Banks a lot. Like the other books in the series I couldn't lay it out of my hands until I finished it. To finally learn more about Micah and his past was awesome. Angel is just perfect for him even if it takes some time until he realizes it and is able to move on from his past with Hannah.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot, dark and sweaty - omg, a whole new level! 30 May 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"Sweet Temptation" took the alpha male thing to a whole new level. Angelina and Micah's love affair was very much based on the possessive - she belongs to him, she wants to make him proud, and she will do whatever it takes to make him feel that way.

In return, Micah pushes her further than she realised she could go, all whilst keeping her safe. This led to some seriously kinky sex scenes. This goes beyond menage a trois and a little spanking, and if that isn't your kind of thing I still think you should read it but be prepared to be a little out of your comfort zone.

we meet up with the lovely ladies - Serena, Faith and Julie - and of course, those incredibly gorgeous alpha males (plus the return of Cole from 'The House' in a more starring role) along with some new men.

Part of me would absolutely adore it if she did a set of novellas on what happens in 'The House' but that's just by the by. This story was hot, the back-story was very well handled, and I loved every single page. A keeper, along with the rest of her books, and of course now I can't wait for the next one!

I've read the the other books in this series and was really looking forward to this one, only because Micah always seemed to have a dark side to him that only we, the reader, were privvy to. However, I wasn't expecting this. It was quite disturbing, actually, but somehow it worked. Micah's discovery of Angelina's love for him and his 'rejection' of her because he sees her as his best friend's 'innocent' little sister (little does he know...), whilst struggling with his growing lust/love for her is heartbreaking. We see the lovely trio of Julie, Serena and Faith - along with all the other characters from the three previous books - all very heavily involved in the storyline without stealing any thunder from Micah and Angelina's story. It's good to see them because in life that's what would usually happen.

My reason for the 4 (well, if I could give it 4 and a half, I would) is because the sex, a lot of which is so hot but goes off the scale halfway through, was really disturbing for me. Micah took the dominant male role to a whole new level. The sharing I'm used to seeing was just crazy. And the whipping and spanking... But I have to say that somehow, Maya managed to keep Angelina's dignity. It was so weird in some places - but it worked! In one scene, Maya somehow managed to have our girl come out on top after being shared between a number of men 'to please her her man'. I didn't feel sorry for her because she didn't want me to. She was proud of what she did, she didn't feel used and felt stronger for the ezperience. And, as I said, it just worked. Maybe if I was heavily into BDSM erotica, I would have given it 5 stars. This is a good read. Lots of action towards the end, as the plot involves Angelina being threatened by a psychotic stalker.
