♦♦♦ MY REVIEW ♦♦♦
What is a girl to do when she finds out that her Communications professor is also her new crush?
Let me say first that I’m glad that I read Parts 1-3 of this serial together and not as individual installments because serials are not my cuppa. Part 1 sets the foundation between Penny and Professor Hunter. There’s lots of hungry looks and sexual tension as both Penny and Professor Hunter try their best not to succumb to their attraction. Admittedly I became a bit bored with Penny’s “I’m a good girl, but I want to be bad” teenaged angst. Professor Hunter’s flirting when he’s trying not to lead Penny on – ARGH, make up your mind, man! Once they throw caution to the wind…
Part 2 picks up right after their first rendezvous and that’s when I couldn’t put this book down. Although Penny and Professor Hunter decided to embark on a relationship at this point, the tension continues to grow between them. The elusive Professor Hunter has secrets that he holds very close. Penny can’t seem to resist Professor Hunter’s sexiness long enough to ask the hard questions and when she finds out what his secret is, she does what any 19 year old does! She runs away without confronting Professor Hunter and asking him for an explanation.
Then there’s a cliffhanger ending…
Overall, Temptation, Parts 1-3 is not what I’d call romantic — I had trouble believing what made either Penny or Professor Hunter fall in love with each other beyond their carnal attraction. Yet the tension, angst and suspense surrounding Professor Hunter kept me fully engaged in this wild ride!! For that, I will continue with this serial to find out what happens next for Penny and Professor Hunter.
