Holy Hannah!! That was freaking hot. Going into Total Temptation, I knew it was a novella. And I know that in the last couple of reviews I said that if I love a novella, I'll typically wish it was longer. Well, I loved Total Temptation and it was the perfect length for the type of story it is. Warning, it is not a HEA for Cassandra and Bobby as a couple. For both, it is more of an eye-opening experience. Through her sexual experience with Bobby, Cassandra has learned to stand up for herself and be more assertive. She can now grab life by the balls and kick some ass. Bobby's transformation is much more subtle. I got the feeling that this was the first time a woman wanted more than sex from him. Cassandra wanted to know his story. She wanted to know what made him tick. Bobby has plans for himself and I think he felt closer to Cassandra than any of the other women he serviced. 

Total Temptation was fabulous. Not just for the sizzling hot sex, but because I also loved the characters. I loved the chemistry that ignited instantly. It was an amazing exploration into the life of a woman that although she's was happily married to a much older man, she never experienced all sex had to offer. Not just the pleasure, but also how empowering and freeing sex can be. I freaking love that this is the theme of the series and I cannot wait to devour books two and three. Bring on the next two couples!
