#BlogTour~~Justified Temptation by Erin Lockwood
Sandy’s 4 Blush Review
Naomi Deveraux is a woman born with a silver spoon in her mouth. A philanthropist that feels the need to give back instead of eating bon-bons all day. Her husband, Charles is kind and dotes on her. Their marriage loving and solid.
Guy Harrington is soon to be divorced from his beautiful supermodel wife. Theirs was a marriage for appearances and not a love match. He’s an adventurer that enjoys climbing famous mountain peaks.
A citywide school crisis means Naomi must leave the family vacation and go back to New York. Her time management issue keeps the private plane and it’s one other passenger (Guy) waiting for her. Needless to say it starts things off on the wrong foot and these two won’t soon become friends. Until their plane falls out of the sky and these two strangers must now fight to survive. I thought I’ll read a few chapters and go to bed. Nope! I read the whole thing!
Justified Temptation is told from Naomi’s POV. Her love and commitment to her husband, their plans for a baby, her work, it was everything to her. Now all that seems really far away. Guy has a duality to his personality. Jerk one second and fierce protector the next. All bets are off – the bonds of civility do not apply in this situation.
How to manage this passion between Naomi and Guy despite her love for Charles? It was inevitable that after such high stress events and faced with maybe never going home these two people would draw closer to each other.
As an aside – what are the chances that both engines would fail on a private plane that only expected to carry two passengers?
This was an angsty, sexy, well written story with just enough twist thrown in to keep it interesting throughout.
Erin Lockwood grew up in Castro Valley, California and attended the University of Oregon, where she graduated in 2003 with a degree in journalism. From there she moved to Denver and spent the next seven years searching for the love of her life and building the family of her dreams.
It wasn’t long until, with children starting preschool and more time on her hands, Erin refocused on her career, beginning with a successful entry into the world of residential real estate as a Realtor. Free time was spent reading book after book (and binge-watching the subsequent films) in the New Adult genre. Feeling hopelessly in love with her husband, she wrote him a short story leading up to their fifth wedding anniversary. That’s when she discovered her tireless passion to share her experience of falling in love through fictional characters. That story evolved into the first novel in the Angles trilogy.
Erin still lives in Denver, Colorado with her husband, Phil, and their three children.
