Seduction by Lauren Smith – Review & Giveaway
Tristan is a man who knows what he wants. And he wants Kat in his bed. All he has to do is convince her they belong together . . .
Kat knows the connection she and Tristan share is special. Her British bad boy is too much of everything: too hot, too arrogant, too irresistible to stay away from. He’s her addiction and one night with him isn’t enough.
That’s what hurts the most. They can’t date, can’t be a normal couple, not when their parents are getting married. Because now that she knows he’s going to be her stepbrother, no one can ever find out what they’ve done . .
4.5 out of 5 for this reader folks!
I REALLY love a well written serial series. I have been fortunate in finding authors that are simply incredible at stuffing a whole lot of story in a small amount of pages. You can bet this is a hard thing for an author to do, and Lauren Smith make it look effortless. The way I see it .. they have to fit an intro, climax and either a cliffhanger and conclusion with each serial that is released, yet make it feel part of a huge story. Seduction is the second book of Lauren Smith‘s “Her British Stepbrother” series and it sure has it all!
This book picks up where the first book left off. Tristen (our yummy hot Brit) and Kat (our sweet American girl), have begun one hot romance only to discover that they are about to become step-siblings. Completely shocked and resigned to stay away from each other for the benefit of their families, each tries to carry on with their lives. Except, what do you do when your life was just jump started by someone who is likely “the one”? These two really try and stay away, but this magnetic pull is just impossible to ignore. So … do they carry on in a secret relationship of sorts (knowing full well that this could ruin many things for many people) until .. maybe … the inevitable happens?? You will have to read this serial to find out!
Lots of angst in this part of the serial. You really feel the sense of obligation by both main characters. I mentioned before in my previous review, that some people may find this kind of book taboo. It is not. They are not step-siblings yet, AND they met before they even knew of their parents relationship .. also they share no blood relation. I also made mention that this genre has been really hammered in the romance world, but once again, Lauren Smith delivers some class and maturity that sets her apart from other authors. The heat and steamy scenes intensifies and the story is absolutely believable,
You ABSOLUTELY must read the first serial to read this one. Another small cliffhanger with this one, and I am so anxious to read the conclusion! WRITE LAUREN WRITE! LOL
