Release Day Blitz with Review: Beguiling (Tempting #2) by Alex Lucian

Posted on
Hate: to dislike intensely or passionately; feel extreme aversion for or extreme hostility toward.
Scarlet Jennings, the preacher’s daughter who lived across the street, was a royal, uptight pain in my ass. When she looked at me, she saw a college quarterback asshole with rocks for brains, but she didn’t have a single word for what was happening between us.
When we were forced to ride together every single day that summer, there was definitely some dislike going on. Extreme hostility was a given, considering that we were spending so much time together in close quarters.  
One night of bed-breaking, body-shattering, lose-your-voice-from-screaming passion had surprised us both, but it was only just the beginning…

My Review

Told from dual points of view, Beguiling follows the story of Scarlet and Leo. Scarlet is the girl next door. The preacher’s daughter and a pain in Leo’s ass. She only viewed Leo as a dumb football player, jerk and ladies man. However, when the two of them are forced to spend the summer together, Scarlet might just end up changing her tune… Scarlet thought she had everything under control. She was ready for summer and had a bucket list of items that she wanted to check off. The last thing she wanted was to be stuck with Leo for the summer. However, fate had other plans. And after one scorching, alcohol infused night, these two won’t be able to stay away from each other….

Beguiling was a quick and easy read for me. It captured my interest from the very first page.  I found the story-line to be fun and sexy. The characters were entertaining and intriguing. I loved the chemistry between Scarlet and Leo. It was scorching and completely off the charts. The moment these two got around each other, there was so much tension. You just couldn’t wait for them to give into the temptation.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It had just the right amount of sexy goodness, steam, and a little bit of drama. This is my first read by this author and I’m really looking forward to reading more from him in the future.
