Review & Giveaway: The Right Temptation by Diane Escalera

Format: mobi (provided by author in exchange for an honest review)
Release Date: June 3, 2013

Can a childhood crush mature into the real thing? Kayla Martinez has recently landed an RN position at a prestigious hospital in her hometown. The new job is everything she's hoped for, especially when one hot specimen shows up in the ER. She hasn't seen her childhood crush in years, and considering how much hotter he's gotten over time, she almost ends up needing resuscitation.

The last thing Nico LaCosta needs is a broken arm. Now his pal's kid sister wants to soothe his pain, but he'd rather keep his distance so her big brother doesn't break his other arm. Kayla's no child anymore, though. She's one hot-blooded woman, determined to remind him of a mind-blowing kiss back when they were teenagers. Leave it to Kayla to drop by his house unannounced and play Nurse Seductive.

A guy has to follow the buddy code, or face the consequences. Still, sometimes giving in to temptation is worth it...

The Right Temptation is a spicy novella that seems longer than it actually is. It's a flirty, light hearted story that will make you smile at some parts and fan yourself at others.

Kayla Martinez has almost everything she could ever dream of, she's an independent woman, she just landed a job as a Registered Nurse in a prominent hospital and is saving up to get her own place. The only thing she doesn't have is the man she's always loved. Her brother's friend Nico LaCosta. When Nico ends up as a patient at the hospital she works in, Kayla can't believe her luck. She decides then and there that she's going to go after what she wants. What ensues is a passionate weekend and a once in a lifetime chance to find love.

Go Kayla! So nice to see a woman be the pursuer without coming off as a stalker (though she does call herself one) or a ditzy bimbo. She seems to know what buttons to push on Nico, how far to take her teasing and how to get his attention and interest focused on her. I've got to admire a character like that. She isn't shallow or petty, she's smart, focused and determined.

Most of The Right Temptation takes place over one weekend but towards the end it fast forwards a few days and since it is a novella, the story is simple but steamy. While the sex scenes aren't explicit, they're still pretty hot. Most of the descriptions come from the sexual tension, the teasing, the almost-but-not-qute-ready-to-have-sex scenes. There's a pretty steamy makeout session that has me rethinking the benefits of a swing and a pool.

For a sexy read with a hot Latin lover, be sure to pick up a copy of The Right Temptation by Diane Escalera. I've added this author's books to my "Must Read Again" list.
