By Natasha Madison
a wealthy man who spends his time enjoying himself, especially one who behaves irresponsibly or is sexually promiscuous.
Synonyms: socialite, pleasure seeker.
I have it all, money, looks, and any woman I want.
Till I meet her and my universe is knocked on its ass and she wants nothing to do with me.
My motto: never date the same man twice. I have less chance of breaking my heart that way.
Till my eyes land on the only man I’ll break my rule for.
She thinks she can run. That I’ll let her get away.
He thinks he can handle a woman like me.
He has no idea.
A man who has it all needs one thing and one thing only. A temptress.
Watch me Tempt the Playboy.
After reading and enjoying TEMPT THE BOSS, I was really looking forward to reading TEMPT THE PLAYBOY, but sadly I didn’t enjoy this one anywhere near as much as I did the previous book.
The first 75% of this book takes place in the same timeline as the first book, so when the scenes from the first book also included Noah and/or Kaleigh, we see those scenes duplicated in this book. If I had bought this book, I’d be very angry at paying for a story that, for the most part, is a replica of the first book just told in different POVs.
I also noticed a few mistakes throughout the story that really bugged me, because they’re all simple mistakes that should have been caught. Noah tells his assistant to take the next day off because he’ll be in court all day, but then he spends the entire next day in his office. Noah invites himself to one of Kaleigh’s yoga sessions, and the next day he’s telling his friends that he’s going to be joining her for goat yoga, but Kaleigh never mentioned that it was goat yoga. At the beginning of the book, Noah is talking about how excited he is that Luca will be starting at the firm, but several weeks later and towards the end of the book, Luca speaks up in a meeting and Noah has no idea who he is and asks him for his name.
Finally, I didn’t like Noah much at all. I think he was written to be funny, but I thought he was nothing more than a pig. He talks about women and his conquests in a way that I found absolutely disgusting. The final straw was when he was complaining about how he was once tied to a chair and couldn’t masturbate while watching two women have sex…in front of Kaleigh and her parents. He could be sweet at times, and I loved how eager he was to impress Kaleigh, but he annoyed me for most of the story.
So what did I like about it? I liked Kaleigh and her quirky ways. I laughed out loud at the scene where she was trying to cook for Noah for the first time. She failed spectacularly and it was hilarious. I also loved the proposal while they visited New York, which was beautiful and very well done.
TEMPT THE PLAYBOY is told in dual POVs, and as with the previous book, there was a lot of unnecessary repetition with the POV switches, which I found irritating. TEMPT THE NEIGHBOR is the next book in the series and will be about Luca, the new associate at Noah’s firm, but at this stage I’m not sure if I’ll read it.
