THE RIGHT TEMPTATION by Diane Escalera-a review
Release Date: June 3, 2013
Can a childhood crush mature into the real thing?
Kayla Martinez has recently landed an RN position at a prestigious hospital in her hometown. The new job is everything she’s hoped for, especially when one hot specimen shows up in the ER. She hasn’t seen her childhood crush in years, and considering how much hotter he’s gotten over time, she almost ends up needing resuscitation.
The last thing Nico LaCosta needs is a broken arm. Now his pal’s kid sister wants to soothe his pain, but he’d rather keep his distance so her big brother doesn’t break his other arm. Kayla’s no child anymore, though. She’s one hot-blooded woman, determined to remind him of a mind-blowing kiss back when they were teenagers. Leave it to Kayla to drop by his house unannounced and play Nurse Seductive. A guy has to follow the buddy code, or face the consequences. Still, sometimes giving in to temptation is worth it…

THE RIGHT TEMPTATION is the second release in Diane Escalera’s ‘Latin Heat’ trilogy of novellas featuring the friends and loves of the LaCosta family. This is Nico LaCosta and Kayla Martinez’s story.
Like many novellas, this is a short story so there is very little time or space to build a relationship therefore our hero and heroine are known to each other, although it has been a number of years since they last had contact.
Kayla Martinez is now a nurse, working at the local hospital and her newest patient is her teen crush Nico LaCosta. But Nico has always been off limits as he was and still is one of her brother’s best friends. And on this night, Nico is so out of it he doesn’t recognize Kayla. Kayla decides to put a plan into action and over the course of the storyline and 24 hours, Kayla will nurse, seduce and fall in love all over again.
The Right Temptation is a quick read. There is a short introduction where Kayla and Nico are reunited, but Nico does not remember her or anything about his hospital stay. Three weeks later, Kayla is so obsessed and determined to see Nico, she stalks his place until she is able to build up the nerve to knock on his door. What ensues is a seduction straight out of play by play book.
Diane Escalera has written a storyline of friendship to love. It was almost comical at times to watch Kayla seduce her way into Nico’s life, especially when he was ‘almost’ oblivious to Kayla’s intent.The majority of the book focuses on Kayla’s seduction of Nico and almost the entirety of the story takes place in Nico’s house. There is some backstory and a few of the previous storyline characters make a cameo but the novel can be read as a stand alone.
If you like a quick, short story with a little humor, plenty of seduction and just the right amount of sex, The Right Temptation is the perfect read on a lazy afternoon or just before bed 😉
