I voluntarily read an ARC of this book in exchange for honest review.
Even though I had this book in my queue for a while, I couldn’t read it as my reading queue was overflowing and to be honest, I wanted all books together so that I feel actual depth of the series. Finally, I gave in to the urge and finished reading both Desperate to Touch and Tempted to kiss in one shot.
Seth and Laura’s story continues with all the elements you expect from a novel. Here we are several years after the events of Hard To Love, following on from the last chapter of Book 1. Laura ran from Seth and all the danger his lifestyle placed her in, but inevitably, years later, they reconnect. Seth’s current lifestyle is way more dangerous than before. Laura is yet to understand and accept it fully. Seth’s love and passion for her are all mixed up with his anger and hurt but he doesn’t intend to ever let her get away again. Despite their own insecurities, the chemistry between Laura and Seth is undeniable.
Marcus is still a mystery and causes trouble to Cross brothers. He seems to be all-knowing with endless reach. No one ever gets the best of him. No one knows who he is or what he looks like. With officer Walsh may be onside or he may not be—more to be discovered on that one.
It has action, danger and suspense and the book ends on quite the cliff-hanger. I am impatient for the final book to see how the story between these two conclude!
