Sweetest Temptations (Blue Collar #1) by J.C. Valentine
Abby is determined to make her new bakery shop a success. She is following her dreams and has everything she could ever want. Her sister thinks her life is lacking in the love department so she uses weekly dinners to try to set Abby up with a string of losers, men that Abby just does not feel a connection. Then she meets Kennedy, a hunky firefighter with a killer smile and captivating charm that makes her weak in the knees. One of her sister’s set ups has finally paid off. The more she tries to stop herself from falling for him the faster she seems to be going down.
When a series of mysterious incidents begin to occur in Abby’s life, Kennedy shows his alpha male protective side and will do anything to keep her safe. It is clear someone is out to get her and ruin her business. Kennedy vows to find out who is trying to hurt the girl he can’t stop wanting to be with, he will protect her no matter how stubborn she tries to be.
The title of this book describes it perfectly for me. Yes, it is the sweetest at times, when Kennedy gets down on one knee to ask Abby to be his girlfriend I just about died. Kennedy is also very tempting like a devilish dessert you shouldn’t eat. From the start I could feel the sexual tension between these two. However, it was not about just lust and desire, it felt like a connection that would mean so much more. I loved Abby she was quirky and fun like a girl I would be friends with I completely got her from the first chapter. Her relationship with her sister was so real. Her friendships with Hope and Dex are great; they were fun characters to read. Kennedy’s firefighter friends were totally swoon worthy. The sex scenes were steamy and sensual. All in all it was a very enjoyable story, I could not put it down. I loved J.C. Valentine’s, Knockout and Tapout, Sweetest Temptations does not disappoint. I am hoping that Jack and Hope’s story is next there was a hint of these two getting together. Highly recommend.
