Coming home to a quiet, dark house.

Meals by myself, because she was already done.

Excuses and apologies, they were never enough.

But even with that, when I touched her—when she arched under me and pulled me deeper— we couldn’t get back to where we needed to be.

Where we used to be.

It was all frustration.



Because even though she was no longer my student, the chemistry was always there.

Adele and I loved each other.

We thought we were unshakeable.

But love isn’t always enough.

It wasn’t enough when I constantly disappointed her.

It wasn’t enough when loss cleaved us in two.

And when she left me, love was not enough.

She didn’t know yet that I’d never stop fighting for her.

But she would.

**Author’s note- Let’s be real clear that this is BOOK TWO of a duet, and you’re going to want to read Tempting before you read this one. Adele and Nathan started their story in that book, and you’ll get the same sex, fighting, and cursing that you did in the first. But if you want it to make sense, read Tempting first. If any of that offends you, please avoid them both.**

Adele is my favorite kind of woman. She's bold, feisty, and ballsy. She goes after what she wants unapologetically. But never forget, a lot of that is armor protecting her from the hurt of abandonment. Her monologue in book 1, Tempting, still haunts me.

They say fools rush in.

Nathan doesn't strike me as a fool, though some of his behavior is certainly questionable. Cautious, calculating, and closed off-certainly, but not a fool. Well, until Adele.

A fairly new relationship is hard but a new job and unforseen pressure are pushing at the cracks in their happy bubble. Cracks become chasms, if you're not careful.

Unfortunately, neither Adele nor Nathan are for using on the important things. Will they realize? Will it matter?

In my zeal to find out more, I skipped over book 2 in the series, though it casually waits for me. I had to know what happens. If you sheltered yourself from Book 1, shame on you. Go get it, devour it, and report back for Provocative.

It's sexy with the steamy student teacher dynamic. Throw in a few surprises and you are wondering what more can possibly happen.

Don't forget a true writer will make you feel... just ignore the tear tracks on my cheeks.
