Mallory Grant and Nixon Scott met purely by chance. With an instant attraction between them, the pair was easily tempted to give in to their desires.
Despite the fact that Mallory wants more with Nixon, she’s willing to settle for what he is prepared to offer: a physical relationship with no strings.
But when Mallory gets robbed at gunpoint, Nixon starts paying more attention.
She assumed the robber was a man looking for some quick cash. Nixon wondered if that was all there was to it. After all, the thief’s words to her left him feeling unsettled.
And when Mallory gets kidnapped, Nixon realizes his instincts were right all along. Only now he’s worried that he might lose the woman who means more to him than he’s ever shared.
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
I was so excited to get Tempted. A.K. Evans took the events of one series and brought it into this one seamlessly (and no you don't have to read the other book for this one to make sense).
I liked Mallory. She was strong and sassy. A loyal friend and hard worker. She found herself in the middle of a mess and lusting after someone she knew she shouldn't. Heck, he told her so. That didn't stop her from wanting Nixon. Didn't stop him from wanting her right back. If only he could let his hangups about being in a relationship go.
But when a string of events targeted Mallory, it was all Nixon could do to ensure her safety. I loved his protective side. How he pulled out all the stops to ensure her safety. How he only let his guard down and opened up to her.
While I loved the danger and drama as Mallory and Nixon took their friendship someplace neither of them expected, I wanted a touch more romance. More of those stolen moments getting to know each other. That being said I can't wait to get back to Steel Ridge and see what is in store for the Harper Security Ops team next.

That might have something to do with the fact that she, along with her husband and two sons, can’t get enough of extreme sports.
Before becoming a writer, Andrea did a brief stint in the insurance and financial services industry and managed her husband’s performance automotive business. That love of extreme sports? She used to drive race cars!
