An exciting, intellectually stimulating science-fiction thriller Burgauer has again delivered a genuine page-turner!
Can Michael fully let go of his trust issues and fall in love? Or will his past leave Natalie on the edge of pain?
He didn’t think he was capable of love; she thought she had everything she ever needed. But when former ballet dancer and entrepreneur Natalie Smith and environmentalist Michael Black meet, they are thrust into a headlong relationship that may devastate them both.
Falling almost too fast for this enigmatic, controlling man, Natalie is both excited and terrified by the fine line Michael walks between his dark and light side, as he introduces her to a world of games, bondage, and punishments. And to her surprise, she likes her submission. She likes the control he wields. And he cannot have it any other way. He likes to bring Natalie to the edge, and she likes the edge he brings her to. Pleasure has never felt so good.
A clever exploration of innermost desires, Temptation is the new novel from author R B O'Brien and it’s destined to set temperatures soaring with its pulse pounding storyline! Raw, sexy and compelling it’s hard to believe there could still be unexplored dark desires the genre hasn’t brought to the fore, yet O’Brien confidently manages to deliver an original storyline without resorting to trite clichés. Yes, you could draw spurious comparisons to Fifty Shades Of Grey and others of note, but in a genre that far too often favours graphic detail over the elements of good writing it’s nice to see that O’Brien delivers on both counts. Playing to the most popular devices of the genre to meet expectations with a narrative that nicely contrasts the personas of Natalie and Michael, whilst weaving suspense and eroticism in equal measure. It’s certainly intense at times and there’s no saccharin coating, but this brings depth to the characters and makes for a far more engrossing storyline.
A tantalising and shrewd read with a cracking denouement, Temptation should prove highly satisfying with fans of the genre and certainly raises expectations of future releases from author R B O’Brien. It is definitely recommended.
