Simple
Tempt Me - Carly Phillips

This is book #3, in the Bodyguard Bad Boys series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Austin was not looking for anything at all.  He had a bad experience with his ex-wife, who still wants to extort him even now.  Having the hots for the nanny seems so cliche', but he cannot seem to keep hands or mouth off the amazing woman who watches his beloved daughter.

 

Mia has something haunting her from the past that is coming after her with a vengeance.  She feels safe with Austin, but to put his child in harms way is not acceptable.  Will love be the ingredient that makes this better?

 

Like all the books in this series, this one has hot hot hot sexy times.  The characters are amazing, and there are conflicts that make the solution feel worthwhile. I loved the pace, banter, and sparks that were a-flyin'!  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Tempt Me (Bodyguard Bad Boys Book 2) (Ba... Tempt Me (Bodyguard Bad Boys Book 2) (Bachelor Bad Boys) (Volume 2) - Carly Phillips

Austin Rhodes works at Alpha Security.  He is also a single dad to his six year old daughter, Bailey.  After being burned by his ex-wife, Austin has sworn off women in general.  Too bad his daughter's live-in nanny has caught his attention.  Austin knows that on paper, it's hands off of the nanny, too bad his brain keeps having other ideas.

Mia Atwood's life hasn't always been rosy.  She grew up in the foster care system but has never felt like part of a family.  The last employer she worked for was arrested for some shady business that Mia witnessed and then testified against him.  All Mia longs for is to be part of a loving family.

The more time Austin spends with Mia, the more he can't get her out of his mind.  The problem is, is that Mia is starting to feel the same way!  When danger from Mia's past comes back into her life, Austin steps up to protect her.  He also finds that he wants to have her in life in every way possible.

I really enjoyed these two characters.  Austin is just perfectly delicious!  He is an alpha, bad a$$ bodyguard, who is the perfect dad to Bailey.  Mia is a sweet, caring woman who just wants to belong somewhere and together these two are just wonderful.  When the two of them finally do get together, they are just explosive.  After having danced around each other for so long, you knew when they finally did get together that they were just going to ignite!  Overall, this was another great addition to the Bodyguard Bad Boys series.

Tempt Me - Carly Phillips

Tempt Me is a single dad/nanny story and Carly Phillips did an absolutely perfect job with it. This sexy stand alone romance, which is part of The Bachelor Bad Boys series pulled me in from the very first page.

Austin was burned badly by his ex-wife and has no plans to every have another long-term relationship with anyone other than his daughter Bailey. However, he didn't plan on Mia Atwood, his daughter's nanny entering his life. I loved that both Austin and Mia pretty much were attracted to one another from the moment she started working as Bailey's nanny, yet they both always put Bailey's needs first. Books with kids can sometimes take away from the romance, but Ms. Phillips did an amazing job establishing Bailey's character without over powering the romance between Austin and Mia. In fact I think part of what helped Austin to feel more comfortable with Mia was how she always put Bailey's needs first.

I thought the slow burn to Austin and Mia being together totally fit with his past and Mia working for Austin. I don't know if it would have been as believable to me if they both didn't delay getting together. I was so glad when they finally gave into their attraction and made love. They had seriously smoking hot chemistry and it only grew stronger the more time they spent together.

I have to say I absolutely loved how protective Austin was of Mia once they got together. He always was protective of his daughter and it just showed even before Austin was willing to admit his feelings for Mia, he had already fallen hard. I loved watching this strong and complex man fall so hard for the first time in his life. I loved seeing Austin, Mia, and Bailey become a real family.

Tempt Me is another winner in the Bachelor Bad Boys series. While it can totally be read as a stand alone story, I see no reason to skip out on Rock Me first to meet all the other characters in the series.

Extremely tempting
Tempt Me - Carly Phillips


Mia is a nanny that is a live in nanny taking care of Bailey, Austin little girl. Mia and Austin both agree that they need to keep the relationship professional even though they have chemistry. Austin’s ex wife shows ups trying to blackmail money from him even though he has sole custody. Mia also has her past employer making trouble for her because she helped put him in jail. Austin tries to protect everyone and the start a relationship for the time that they are holed up together but can it really work out there. These three people are great. Between the way they try to protect Bailey and each other is great. This was such a great read I could not put this book down. One of my favorites from Carly Phillips. This is a great series.
