A stunning new novel featuring the characters from theTemptation books...
Have you ever thought you knew exactly where your life was headed?
Carly enjoys her carefree life — free from obstructions, free from drama, and free from anchors that tie her down to anyone or anything. She likes making her own decisions and not having to answer to anyone. Her life is good. Uncomplicated.
But Carly is set for a shake-up when she is introduced to Derek at her best friend’s birthday. Firefighter-Derek. Drop-dead-gorgeous-Derek. Brown-eyed-dirty-talking-cocky-as-hell-Derek. Their instant attraction has them both questioning their outlook on life, on relationships ... and on love.
Please note: Attraction can be read as a stand-alone novel. However, character development may be limited if you choose not to read the other books first.
Review by Brittany
Carly Henkley is Alexis Summers’ best friend. You can read all about Alexis and her adventures in the first four books in the Temptation series (Temptation, Satisfaction, Attainment, and Fulfillment). It’s not required that you read those before this, but you’ll love them. They are just fantastic.
Carly is one of those “I won’t ever be in a relationship because I will end up getting hurt” type of girls. So, she always keeps guys are arms length… or well, dick length. But when she meets Derek King, she realizes she has a deep attraction for him (hence the title).
Derek feels it too, and is determined to get Carly to realize that what is between them is more than attraction. That together, they just… “are”. Carly, of course, is fighting tooth and nail, not wanting to risk her heart breaking and never being able to be repaired.
Hesitantly, but knowingly, Carly pushes all that aside and agrees to just “be” with Derek. Of course there are ups and downs, but I can’t tell you what those are or what happens, just know that you will be reading this book from morning to night, not stopping for anything.
KM Golland is a fantastic writer, one of my favorite authors. I highly recommend her Temptation series and of course Attraction. She is hysterical as well. And philosophical too. Take a look.
Bryce, Derek and the other two hotty-hotcakes made their way over to where Lexi and I were standing. As they approached, I squeezed Alexis' arm tightly. "Quick! Quick! My vagina is burning, please come to my rescue," I say theatrically under my breath, clearly enunciating my double meaning of the word come.
Alexis laughed then added just as quietly, "Mr. Firefighter Derek, please douse my friends fiery hole with your fire hose. Nobody likes a burnt burger."
Then you have this:
“Love is uncontrollable. It’s chaotic and disorganized, but it is what everyone seeks in life. When you find it, you fucking grab it and you don’t let it go, no matter what or who gets in your way. Love is right there in front of you in the form of Derek, and I’ll be damned if I’ll stand by and let you close your eyes to it.”
It’s a two way street with KM. She combines all aspects of writing and presents it to you in one amazing book. The story is real, the characters are great, and the love is true. Give this five-star book a try.
