TEMPTED was originally published as Tempted by Her Innocent Ki 45 starsI was excited to be able to preview this third installment in Maya Banks’ Pregnancy and Passion series The first two installments were solid 4 star reads for me but this is my favorite so farAshley has a pure sweet vivacious personality and her excitement in finding her dream man was a joy to experience Of course there would not a story if everything stayed on that path Devon courts and proposes to her in order to seal a lucrative deal with her father’s corporation The world is all roses until Ashley accidentally discovers his deceit on their wedding nightIt’s a story that’s been done before but her decision to stay with him and try to make the marriage work gave the story that angsty goodness that I like She loves him despite his deceit and revelation that he considers her flighty and frivolous She decides to make herself over into a woman that he could loveThe real Ashley begins to disappear along with her zest for life Devon seems oblivious to the changes in her With the discovery of her pregnancy comes the revelation that she deserves to be loved for herselfWhen she leaves Devon and moves in with her friend he suddenly realizes that he had lost what he needed to make his life complete I deducted5 stars because I just wanted a bit anguish from Devon before the HEAAnxiously awaiting the fourth bookThis e book ARC was graciously provided by NetGalley Jan 2016 Update Audiobook 4 stars
