The Marine's Temptation

The Marine’s Temptation (The Adair Affairs) by Jennifer Morey

Publisher: Harlequin

March 2015

ISBN: 978-0-373-27910-4

Pages: 284

Contemporary, Romantic Suspense

Georgia Mason is a librarian that has seen what money can do to people.  She has seen a wealthy Adair ruin her stepmother’s life.  She is also determined not to get involved with his son, Carson. Carson might be a former special ops soldier who showers her with gifts and he might be hot but she isn’t going to let that change her mind. As Carson searches for his long-lost stepbrother and also searches for the traitor behind his last mission that was botched, it makes it very hard for Georgia to hate him especially when he is the sexiest man she has ever met. Carson protects Georgia when her life is threatened and by doing so it ignites the passion between them.  Georgia is finding that just maybe the love of money isn’t the root of all evil.  There might be more to Carson to respect, trust and love.

The story plot starts with a good idea but doesn’t quite reach its potential. While the story isn’t bad at times the way it jumps between scenes makes it a little confusing to follow. The characters are a little too one dimensional, specifically, the book would have made for a great read if the characters feelings and thoughts would have been explored a little more. For example, Georgia’s reaction to different situations makes it difficult to connect with her. For readers looking to read a book for light reading this one would work.  Sadly the potential was there but didn’t quite deliver.  Some readers might find it still worth checking out as things work out in the end, but it could have much better if the characters were developed a bit more.

Received a review copy
