A Lesson in Temptation by Audra North
Stanton Family #4
Not a bad finish to the Stanton Family, but much like the first one, it doesn’t really offer anything that I haven’t read a hundred times. A quick and easy read but nothing special.
“Julie was a brilliant woman who drew him out of his shell and made him laugh.”
I liked Julie and her passion for life. She wasn’t afraid to go out there and try new things and to make herself vulnerable. She was a mature young woman who really had her life together. The romance isn’t too bad and I enjoyed the spice the tango lessons added, though I would have loved more from the lessons, page space is limited in a novella so you can only have so much. There wasn’t anything that made this novella stand out from everything else out there. It was pretty predictable and standard for a fling to love romance.
2 out of 5 stars
Adam Harkness pulled himself out of poverty to become one of the world’s most respected Finance professors, but at the cost of his personal life. When a well-meaning friend gifts him with a dance course, Adam decides to attend one class out of courtesy, but no more than that. He has work to do, after all – or at least, that’s what he tells himself.
After being bullied in high school, Julie Stanton took refuge in her studies. But now that her hard work has paid off and Julie has found success in her job, it’s time to focus on finding the same happiness in the rest of her life.
When Adam walks into the same tango class that Julie signed up for, she recognizes him immediately as the professor whom she had a crush on in college. Both Adam and Julie have proven themselves to be excellent scholars. But when the attraction between them turns into something more, will they be able to open their hearts and learn a new lesson – how to love.
