Review: SWEET TEMPTATION (Players #3) by Jaine Diamond


Bodyguards don’t fall in love.

This job comes with benefits.
I knew that from the moment I laid eyes on her.
Summer Sorensen, party queen. Super-hot DJ and soon-to-be-rockstar. 

She’s sexy, sassy, strong… 
But she’s in danger.

I know she doesn’t want to hire me.
She doesn’t want to need me, but she does.
And this job is getting more complicated by the hour.

Damsel in distress? Yeah, right.
Try ball breaker. Seductress.

I never mess around with my clients.
But I’ve never been so tempted before.

They call me alpha… boss… hero… because I’m always in control.
It’s my job to protect her, and I do my job well.

But how the hell do I resist her?

Sweet Temptation is a smoking-hot, suspenseful bodyguard romance, with a badass protective alpha hero and the sassy, irresistible heroine who melts his icy heart. It is the third full-length novel in the Players rockstar romance series, and can be read as a standalone or as part of the series.

Sweet Temptation is another brilliant and entertaining installment in this author’s rockstar series, Players! To say that I devoured this book is an understatement. I was immediately immersed within the story from the first page and I found myself enthralled until the very end.  This book has something for everyone with a swoon worthy hero & a strong heroine, an underlying mystery with a thread of suspense, a smattering of humor, and some steamy, kindle melting moments.

Ronan manages his own security company and had plans to assign another bodyguard to Summer’s case, but the moment he lays eyes on her, he just knows he needs to protect her himself. He takes his role as bodyguard very seriously and grapples with his attraction towards Summer. I positively adored Ronan.  I wouldn’t minding have this scrumptious man  with a protective nature as my book boyfriend. While he is commanding, he also possesses a calming presence. He can be serious, but he occasionally responds with dry wit which I found humorous and made him even more desirable.

Summer is an absolute breathe of fresh air.  She has a vibrant, flirty personality that I loved and she is like a magnetic force of energy that draws everyone into her orbit.  I found her character to be rather interesting.  She loves to throw parties, but I wouldn’t call her a party girl.  Her heart is huge and her sassiness are what endeared her to me. I am not one for dance music nor do I know much about DJs, but  I now consider myself enlightened. The author highlights just how complex her career is  and I loved discovering the inner workings surrounding her profession. 

Now let’s talk about these two together because the chemistry was off the charts!  There was so much palpable tension during the first half of the book that I just knew when they finally came together it would be explosive.  Holy hotness!  I thought my kindle would spontaneously combust.  

This book has a lot going on in it and it flows together perfectly.  There is an intriguing, underlying mystery that creates an interesting dynamic between some of the characters whiles also lending itself to moments of suspense and action. There is also some rather hilarious one-liners and scenes interspersed throughout the book.  I nearly snorted coffee out of my nose during one such scene.  

While Sweet Temptation is book 3 in this author’s Players series, I do believe you could read it as a standalone.  However, I highly recommend reading the previous two books for the ultimate experience and also because there is some character overlap.  In terms of secondary characters, it was great fun to catch up with Ash, Xander, and their significant others as well as the multiple scenes with Elle from the Dirty series.  

In case you can’t tell, I loved this book. I found the storyline to be interesting & engaging and the characters were captivating and well developed.  If you have enjoyed any of this author’s previous works or you are looking for a unique, rockstar romantic suspense, then you’ll want to check out Sweet Temptation!
