What happens when the boy you’ve wanted your whole life finally wants you back?
I’m used to taking what I want, being the best at what I do. During the day, I make big bucks as New York’s premiere consultant. At night, I can get any girl I lay my eyes on. I thought this life was what I wanted: working hard and playing harder–with penthouse apartments, luxury cars and bottle service every weekend. After six years in the city, I know I’ve been living like a monster for too long. I need to get my act together. I need to find something real. I need to come home.
LA means family and a fresh start. My parents and my friends who are close enough to be siblings.
Melina is nerdy smart, with a challenging sense of humor and legs for miles. It’s so hard to describe her…enigmatically beautiful. I’m sure there’s a word for it in French. But I know there’s a naughty girl hiding behind that shy smile that I’m dying to drag out.
There was always something between us. I never forgot her laugh, never could get her off my mind. Nobody ever seemed to notice how my body would react when I was near Melina, how much more focused I became—maybe not even Melina herself. But this time it’s different.
The more time we spend together, the more I wonder if there was something there all along. After so long in the fast lane, I don’t know if I can handle settling down. But seeing Melina’s passion, I’m tempted beyond belief.
I have to admit it: temptation is hard to resist.
I go dizzy, feeling so faint I need to close my eyes for a minute before I can do anything but bask. Wyatt strokes my hair slowly, the rough-but-cool touch of his hands bringing me back to life, and when I open my eyes I see him lying there beside me.
Suddenly the haze clears and I feel my stomach sink like a stone. The full magnitude of what just happened forming like a beast on the horizon.
“Oh god…I can’t believe we just…” I mumble.
“Yeah…” Wyatt replies with a lazy grin. “We did.”
The anxiety comes fast, flooding into that empty space left by orgasm.
Wyatt. My childhood crush. A friend I share with our families, our entire group. My new, albeit temporary, boss. As amazing as it felt in the moment, the myriad ways in which this was a horrible idea come out from wherever they were hiding an hour ago.
How could I be so reckless?
And how the hell are we going to keep this a secret?

Another new author for me! I have had some of his previous books on my TBR list and now I really have to catch up!
Temptation is the story of Wyatt and Melina. Childhood friends, girlfriend’s little sister. School age unrequited love. It’s all that and so much more.
This story starts with chaos, of families intermingling, laughter and love. Sometimes it’s just too much for Melina, she longs for the quiet.
Wyatt has always understood this and his uncanny ability to bring Melina out of her shell is beautiful.
I devoured this book overnight, I couldn’t put it down. I was charmed, I laughed at the secondary characters and I absolutely swooned over the romance between Wyatt and Melina.
I have a great respect for the male romance author! They are boldly going into a realm that is female driven and can be a bit biased. Which I think is a shame. I loved the alternate POV’s in this story with Mr. Hawkins really bring Melina to life in an absolutely perfect way!
Well done Mr. Hawkins, you have yourself another fan! I cannot wait to read what you come out with next and I will be moving your previous books to the front of my TBR list!
