[KINDLE] ❅ Temptation ❥ Ivy Smoak – Linkadvantage.info
This book gives new meaning to the phrase Hot for teacher I was really torn with rating this book Even while writing this review, I m torn I enjoyed this book and it proved to be a fast read I have also read some of the later books in the series and finally got the chance to read the book which started the series I can see where the Author has grown as a writer For me this was fun, escapism reading Penny is a nineteen year old college student who bumps into a man in a coffee shop Her coffee spills on her and he offers her his sweater to wear as an apology She accepts while noticing how good looking the man is What could have been an innocent encounter turns serious when she shows up for her first class and is shocked to see that the man who gave her his sweater is her professor, James Hunter Lust and longing enter stage leftThey have instantaneous lust and longing for each other which is complicated by him being her professor and also because of a fellow student who wants to be than friends with Penny as well Both throw caution to the wind and enter into a relationship.Forbidden romance full of angst, secrets, and false assumptions Some of the characters are immature and I wanted to take and shake them I wasn t a big fan of her roommate and at times, Penny s immaturity was annoying At times, I wondered what a twenty seven year old professor who once had his own company would see in her Having read some of the later books, I can say that she does mature and shows growth in later books Plus, he is her professor I kept thinking of all the legal, ethical and moral issues that would come into play of a professor becoming involved intimately romantically with a student I would imagine that all universities would frown down upon that and have strict rules code of conduct guidelines But then again, wasn t that the point That their relationship is naughty and forbidden That they are throwing caution to the wind and going for it, it is a forbidden romance after all I did enjoy learning how the Penny and James I met in latter books, met in this book This is definitely not your mother s harlequin romance There are some hot scenes so if you don t like sex scenes in your romance books this wont be for you If you are willing to overlook the issues surrounding the forbidden romance, you might just enjoy these characters and their story So even with some of the issues I had with the book, I enjoyed it It was a fast steamy read. Let me tell you guys and gals that this lady right here is NOT a fan of serials NOPE Not me I thought that I would pick up this parts 1 3 bit and get my full story but Nooooo and what pisses me off the most is that I was absolutely flipping hooked and definitely want Why, oh why could you have not left me in my serial hating blissful ignorance Seriously though, that Professor Hunter is one smexy dude and GO PENNY for fulfilling your naughty Professor fantasies lol I obviously enjoyed the story but there WAS one thing that pissed me off to the moon and back and that was the reason behind the temporary end there PENNY IS THE ONE THAT SHOULD BE MAD HERE, FOLKS rantoverARC received in exchange for an honest review. 4 Forbidden stars from meI love forbidden romances novels but I m not a great fan of student teacher relationshipMaybe because they are making me nervous, I m always on the edge of what will happen when somebody will catch them And yep, i was feeling this nervousness while i was reading this story, but i was catching myself to enjoy it very much It was an intense, seductive, steamy and very intoxicating story And i loved it, even though in some points i want to hit Penny very much But let me take the things from the beginning First of all, this book was seperated in three parts Part 1 Penny and James accidentally met each other and instantly they got under each others skin But soon they discovered that they are connected somehow.He was her professor in Comm class and she was his student But fate always got them to each others way and they tried really hard to resist to the temptationIn that part, i loved so much all the flirting between the two of them It was weird and uncommon and that s why i liked it so muchProfessor Hunter was using the method of teaching to pass hot and delicious messages to Penny and Penny in her own way she was doing the same while she was answering some of his question in the classroom God I enjoyed so much those moments in the classroom I was smiling so muchExcept for that, i really loved James Hunter He was such a hottie Yummy Part 2 James gave in the temptation and they started an onorthodox secret relationship Here we were having the honeymoon phase until some hidden secrets were starting to be revealed and turned everything upside down.You know, here there was all those sexy scenes and the builting of beautiful memories that they will be their companion for after Part 3 Penny found out a major secret for James and she got a little bit wild and crazyOkay, she was right in an aspect but still she was acting a little bit irrational And she forgot that she was keeping also something from him Her attitude was making me crazy I wanted to slap her so badly So, Penny and James gave in the temptation Is it only lust that they are feeling for each other Or there is something , something solid that it will keep them together Is it possible for those two to overcome all those secrets that are standing between them Can they have a true relationship when for all the others their status are making them forbidden to each other Is it possible for them to find their safe haven in each other s embraceI have to warn you The obstacles are too manyJames Hunter was a sexy, handsome, intelligent and very bold man In the most part of the book, he was having this mysterious aura to surround him From the first moment, he caught me on his seductive web Okay, Penny also LOL He was such a gentleman and he knew how to treat a woman And as i found out later, he was like a wild beast on sex He was so controling and demanding some times, but he was also kind and caring Well, until the last page, i was questioning his motives I really didn t know if he was telling the truth even though that he was sounding really sincere and I m so fuckin sure that there are many secrets in his life that we haven t discover yet He had an ugly past and in some phases, he was letting his guard down and we could see a vulnerable man baneath the hard and sure exterior He really liked Penny and he was determined to have her even though that he was putting his carreer at stake.I really liked him and i think that i am a little bit infatuated by him He is still a mystery, but a mystery that i would love to solveThe realization hit me hard This wasn t a game Flirting with him wasn t the same as it was with guys my own age Professor Hunter had an air of danger around him He was intriguing because he terrified meThe only thing that it was making me much nervous was his boldness He was acting like he didn t care if somebody will catch them He was showing up on her dorm room, they were fucking in public places and things like that they were making my heart to beat like crazy from my fear, but i have the impression that i was the only person that i was felt like that Oh I forgot to tell you that he was insanely wealthy and i couldn t understand why the hell he was teaching But okay, i think i understand now And now, my lovely Penny I have to admit that my most objections were about her and her attitude.I liked her very much in the beginning, She was nice and cute and a little bit sassy But it turned out that she was a little bit stubborn and she was acting irrational I would call her a little bit of immature too, but maybe i can blame her age Well, Penny was presented as a girl not too bold, with just one relationship The kind and sweet girl that is staying at home and doesn t want to go out to party all the time But in this story, she became a little bit wild Maybe her lust over professor Hunter turned her to a bold woman, but i think that it was a little bit wrong She was a little bit confusing in many matters Her raging hormones were driving me crazyThe hunger in his eyes was a temptation I could no longer resist I had been lying to myself this whole time.I wasn t a good girl I was bad And boldness suddenly came easily to meYep, she was madly in love with James, but when she was mad with him she was acting so irrational, and she was doing big mistakes.I didn t like the fact that when she learned James secret, she preferred to act like stupid that sit down and talk to him And i have to remind her that she was keeping a secret too A secret that was seemed minus but it could destroyed them once for all I also didn t like how she played Tyler He didn t deserved this kind of treatment.And for God s sake Why in the hell this girl was calling her lover Professor Hunter even in their most intimate moments I will never get oner this shit I also want to tell that i really liked Tyler and that wasn t so good I preffered that in the beginning appeared as the villain, but damn it He turned out to be such a wonderfull guy and i really got confused I truly liked him, but not for Penny Right I still preffer James As for her best friend, Melissa I liked her and i didn t liked her I liked that she was such a good friend for Penny and she was taking care after her, but i didn t liked that she was so insisted in other matters I think that her insistence was complicating the things for Penny even Well, the end was ugly There were so many hidden truths beside James and Penny and i want so badly for those two to find their HEA together Ivy Smoak, i hate you No, i don tWhy you had to write another three parts I m dying here from the agony I want the next chapters in this forbidden loveARC kindly provided via NetGalley for the exchange of an honest review I loved this story I m a big fan of teacher student affair novels and on the whole I did enjoy it I found myself hopelessly in love with Professor Hunter from the moment he enters the story.Penny meets a sexy, handsome man in a coffee shop and they have an instant chemistry On the first day of her public speaking course at college, the man is revealed as her new professor of communication Will they be able to keep their hands to themselves when they see each other so often Will their forbidden love flourish Professor Hunter was such an alpha, dominant man, so confident and strong He has such a filthy, dirty mouth that just makes you all hot and bothered and I abso freaking lutely love that The only thing that annoyed me was Penny s best friend and roommate s character, Melissa I found her silly and light headed I loved Tyler, Penny s classmate and friend who was in love with her and was pursuing her with all his heart He was sweet, kind and sooo lovable I don t know if guys like him exist but I hope so The storyline, although not original, was interesting I loved this couple and I rooted for them the whole way through Their imperfections made them perfect Their connection and the tension radiated off the pages This book is seriously scorching hot If you enjoy

I m a sucker for sexy, broody professors, and Professor James Hunter is mouth wateringThis installment represents the very start of our adventure with Penny and her whirlwind affair with her Communications Professor The majority of the text laid the groundwork for the series We get to know Penny who has the sole, 1st person POV as well as her friends and suitors.Penny falls into the pseudo tropey shy bookish college student category She s not a virgin, but she s fairly inexperienced Her previous romantic encounters have been pretty disastrous.She s been dating boys.Professor James Hunter is a Man.Ah yes, forbidden fruit I wasn t a bad girl, but I wanted to be bad for him Doesn t that make me badI wanted to do things with him that would surely get him fired. The story had a steady pace to it, and I was enjoying myself The tension was building between Penny and Professor Hunter, and just when I though I would pass out from all the UST The two had their moment.AND IT WAS HOT.Sweet Baby Jesus, it was phenomenal I had already determined that the series was worth exploring, but once we hit that glorious moment of sexiness, I was hooked THE HUNTED TEMPTATION PART TWODelicious I wasn t just fucking my professor I was in deep I loved him. I m in clove with my Comm professor I d like to start by saying that this little story contains one the the most jaw dropping first dates I ve read in a while It might just melt your Kindle, so beware of the hotness Penny and her Professor have given in to temptation their illicit affair is in full swing Penny s feelings for James Hunter are growing, but we re no closer to unraveling the mystery which surrounds the man.This episode picked up right where part one left off The couple s hot and heavy desk top romp was supposed to be the only moment of weakness.Yeah Right The Professor wants , Penny needs , and I can t help but crave of them both Penny and her professor are doing a bit of dating in this installment of the series, which allows for glimpses into the mysterious Professor Hunter, but it also increases the tension a bit Because their relationship must stay a secret.There s the whole student professor dynamic,The inexperienced and naive heartthrob sex god balance,and a fairly sizable age gap Speaking of which, Penny has allowed her professor to assume she s a senior, and two years older than she actually isWe left off with a cliffhanger at the end of this story, so I ll be jumping right into the next book.The odds are definitely stacked against this couple, so I m eager to see how it all plays out THE HUNTED TEMPTATION PART THREEPenny Taylor, step forward to receive your Hot Mess award Brownies were second only to condoms on my list of favorite things that come in foil. A lot that went down in Part 3 of Temptation, so let s get goingPenny left Professor Hunter s Apartment at the end of the last episode convinced that James Hunter is a married man It was a thoughtless tantrum that makes me want to shake the crap out of this girl Penny Taylor has a habit of making childish shortsighted decisions She loudly proclaims the moral high ground from deep within the hole she s digging herself.In short, Penny Taylor is an obnoxious hot mess of a little girl And for some unknown reason, I was glued to her story Drama, drama, drama. I m pretty sure I even yelled at my book a few times.I m a total sucker for the seduction of hot, brooding professors That type of forbidden romance gets my smutty stamp of approval every single time.The student professor dynamic is plenty to work with in the angst department, but this story is determined to stack the odds against our MCs as high as humanly possible.We ve got a forbidden romance,Obsessed professors,Childish meltdowns,Meddling friends, before this story concludes, we ll be laying in a good ol fashioned love triangle.HOT.MESS.and I can t seem to look away I can t even fully articulate what has me so hypnotized by this overly angsty New Adult Romance Penny Taylor is the kind of character that I want to rail against She consistently makes wrong decisions It s pretty impressive, actually.Of course, it helps that Professor Hunter is a total heartthrob Wealthy, mysterious, gorgeous, and utterly unobtainable I can understand how a girl might lose her senses in the face of all that perfection.The Hunted series might be a case ofThe Right Book at the Right TimeI enjoyed the story despite the fact that it s outside of my usual tastes.Ivy Smoak is a new to me author, and I m enjoying what she has to offer. Shy Student Penny Taylor Always Follows The Rules At Least, That S How It Appears To Her Classmates But She Has One Illicit Secret She S Fallen Hard For Her Professor And She S Pretty Sure He S Fallen For Her TooEveryone Loves Professor Hunter He S Tall, Dark, And Handsome And Completely Unobtainable But It S The Secrets Hiding Behind His Deep Brown Eyes That Allures Penny Secrets Darker Than She Could Ever ImagineJames Hunter Gave Up His Billionaire Lifestyle In NYC Last Year To Become A Professor The Easiest New Rule To Follow Don T Fraternize With The Students It S Easy To Follow Because He S Become Quite The Recluse In His New Town The Only Way He Knows How To Keep His Secrets BuriedBut He Never Expected To Be Teaching Such A Beautiful Student He Has To Resist Her He Needs To Walk Away Penny Deserves Better Than A Man With His Demons But She S Daring Him To Cross The Line And He S Never Been One To Resist Temptation 2 stars the author has the ability to craft and structure a story albeit in need of some editing , but I was disappointed with the characters and the ending My first impression of Penny was that she had to be a high school girl Her immaturity continued to show throughout the rest of the book I was especially disappointed when she ran from James without questioning what she found in his bedroom to Tyler and used him Good for Tyler for walking away He deserved better.I was often thrown out of the plot Penny was supposed to be a sexual novice Austin had been her only partner and presumably for a short period of time , yet she gave James head like she was Linda Lovelace What the heck was up with her constantly calling him Professor Hunter even while they were intimate In those moments, Penny seemed like a 12 year old who wasn t allowed to address an adult by his first name I kept thinking that James would turn out to be the villain Why would a 27 year old handsome, rich, Harvard graduate who could easily find a woman who was his intellectual equal be interested in awkward and insecure and sometimes not very smart Penny unless there was something wrong with him I was waiting to see if he got off on dominating young girls who wouldn t fight back.If it wasn t for the hot sex, this book would be tagged YA due to Penny s angst and the inability to understand what was up with James his POV would have been helpful.The COMM classroom scenes felt like grade 9 The speeches were simple and the professor s directions lame Each of the classes felt like they lasted about 10 minutes after he talked, handed out papers, then dismissed everyone.Lastly, I didn t appreciate the lack of resolution at the end of the book In any romance, the hero and heroine have to end up in a good place even if it s not a HEA Ms Smoak should have placed the ending where James and Penny want to be together regardless of the complications and hinted at subplots that could unravel everything in book 2 I have no doubt that the ending of Temptation would have been rejected by a traditional publishing house because readers hate to be tricked and conned into buying book 2.This reader is done with James and Penny. Meh Temptation seemed like an interesting new series to dive into Yet, being knee deep in book 2 I m just not feeling it Maybe they will get better or become likable No idea though Should I continue torturing myself Probably not but there s like 2 books right I can do this.In it, you will meet Penny and James Of course things started off hot and heavy but these two definitely had their secrets Sooner, rather than later, they all start to come out Most come out towards the end of the book but they were all rather predictable.Turns out that Penny is a lot younger than James thought oh no Then James was hiding an ex wife details Other than that, I just ugh can t stand Penny She is just extremely needy and annoys the living shit out of me Then there s James who semi decent but still weird and mysterious.Hoping they will get better SO MUCH CRINGE.1 I had an actual negative physical reaction every single time I had to read Yes she screamed Oh my God, who writes that 2 Dialogue in generally was awkward and unnaturally verbose.3 Instalove.4 Main character is a total idiot.5 The roommate best friend is such a jerk Why would you be friends with this person This thing, though, the main thing it needs to not have a number.Throughout the book our main character struggles with whether or not to date a guy that sexually assaults her at the beginning of the book There is no question of if they should be friends, they re instantly best friends after he apologizes and continues to try to get into her pants I found this so distasteful and egregious that throughout the entire book I kept waiting for the punchline.
