Review/Giveaway: Tempted by Trouble by Susan Arden

Tour Schedule

Tempted by Trouble
By: Susan Arden


When a woman is the magnet for the wrong man, it takes a bad boy to break old habits.

Carolina Rodriguez is a large animal veterinarian on a mission to escape South Florida and her overprotective family. Willing to do just about anything, she accepts a job in Annona, Texas over the Internet from a family connection.

At her cousin’s wedding, she runs into Matt, a handsome Texan in the church parking lot. Matthew McLemore is more than gorgeous, he’s Carolina’s new boss, and needs her help to determine why his cattle keep dying. Matt’s instantaneous attraction to Carolina sorely tempts him to push the boundaries of their work contract, but a roll in the hay may prove too volatile to handle. Until she arrives on his ranch and is too hot to resist.
Carolina refuses to admit Matt’s raw sexuality is more than overpowering or that she's the least bit tempted by this smooth-talking bad boy. But by the time the pathology lab reports comes back, they’ve explored every inch of each other. All of a sudden, this fiery affair is more than just a fling. And when a past flame threatens to overwhelm their new found romance, Matt must find a way to stake his claim to Carolina's heart before it's too late.

Warning: Contains a smoking mess of scorching love scenes.
Ice may be needed for blazing imaginations.

My Review:

Carolina Rodriguez and Matt McLemore get off on the wrong foot, and despite that the chemistry between these two, is melt your screen hot! I liked Carolina, she was just getting over a jerk that she dated for too long. She’s a large animal veterinarian who is hired by Matt to help figure out why his cattle is dying.

Matt was hot, smart and Carolina believes him to be a player. Despite all of that they can’t help but end up in bed together.  Matt is country cowboy mixed with big city executive, the image of him in a tuxedo and then him on horseback with cowboy hat and those boots, he’s my kind of hero.

I haven’t read Susan Arden before and she doesn’t disappoint, the story was entertaining and hot. I was looking to read a cowboy romance and this was a great read. I will definitely read more of her work in the future.

Author Info:

Susan grew up in Miami, Florida and spent summers with her father, a college philosophy professor. Surrounded by stacks of books, she voraciously read throughout her childhood. Her father gave her the Little Prince not once, but several times over the years and the ideas of heartfelt vision stuck. "What matters is beyond the tangible. I love the concept of falling in love. The type of romantic journey that is so intense, it borders on insanity."--Susan D. Taylor
Susan moved to Nashville where she taught biology and special education as well as coached girls' soccer. No longer a public school teacher, Susan now writes about consuming passion, how attraction plays out, and characters that are either going to incinerate or meld like ribbons of warm caramel. She lives in TN with her husband, two blue heelers, two cats, a gecko and a snake. An RYT 200 (Yoga Alliance) specializing in vinyasa flow when she's not writing her next hot romance.
