    3 1/2 to 4 Stars Well, sometimes I shock myself. I actually enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I loved the plot, the humor, and especially the heroine, Angelina. She had an inner strength that I admired tremendously. In fact, I liked her so much that she ended up on my favorite heroine shelf. I was a little disappointed with the hero, Micah, though. From the start of the series, his character was fun-loving, charming, and deliciously cocky. Unfortunately, in his own book he came 3 1/2 to 4 Stars Well, sometimes I shock myself.

From the start of the series, his character was fun-loving, charming, and deliciously cocky. Unfortunately, in his own book he came across as broody, stubborn, and a complete jerk. I understood his issues, and he did redeem himself in the end, but I missed the Micah I fell in love with during the previous books. I'll admit the reason WHY I enjoyed this book so much was because I SKIPPED the FIVE CHAPTER GROUP SEX SCENE and the TWO CHAPTER MÉNAGE SCENE. Yep, I had no desire to read those scenes. I'm a VANILLA GIRL who likes a SIDE HELPING of kink NOT a heap load of kink, thank you very much. I bet you're wondering why I keep reading a series that obviously isn't really my cup of tea. Well, my answer is simple. Maya Banks is one of my all-time favorite authors and I will sample anything she writes.

This was 35-year-old former Miami cop and now Houston security expert Micah Hudson's story. Micah, everyone's sexual "third" from the previous books in the 'Sweet' series, finally gets a lady of his own. Well, not without a lot of dragging his feet/making excuses about why he'll never let himself fall in love again, but he does eventually give in to a very strong-willed Angelina Moyano. Angelina, 23, is a young woman from Micah's mysterious past, a woman who he left behind when he left Miami. "Angel" was the younger sister of his best friend and cop partner, David. Micah and David fell for the same woman, Hannah, and decided the best thing for all would be to become a permanent threesome. They were a happy trio, until a terrible accident took the lives of the two people who meant the most to him. Desperate to escape the memories of what he lost, Micah packed his bags, headed west, and never looked back. Except for his yearly visits to Miami, where Angelina is an active participant (unbeknownst to him) in his 'penance'. Angelina has always had special feelings for Micah, even though Micah always treated her like a kid sister. But after three long years of grieving, is Micah ready for a serious relationship? Angelina knows all about Micah's unusual sexual proclivities (they match up well with hers), and her feelings for him have only grown stronger. Now might be the perfect time to make her move. She needs to get out of Miami--fast--because she has a stalker after her, and no one to help her. Would Micah want to see her if she turned up on his doorstep? Or would that just dredge up old memories? When Micah first sees "Angel" after three years, he can't believe his eyes--is that beautiful, sexy woman 'servicing' two men at "The House" David's kid sister? What is she doing in Houston, and more importantly, what is she doing at "The House" (a private sex club catering to BDSM)? Well, well, well, this was quite the little scorcher! Both Micah and Angelina indulged in some serious kink. At first things were going along pretty much normally sexually between them. Micah told Angelina that he had nothing to offer her except sex (she was cool with that, yet held out hope that she could change his mind and get his heart involved). They were living at friend Damon's sex club while they tried to figure out who was Angelina's stalker, and then Micah made the declaration of "We have company coming over tonight." and then all sexual hell broke loose! OMG, Angel, Micah, and his well-endowed friends Chris, Rick, and Cole had various combos of twosomes, threesomes, foursomes, fivesomes, oral, anal, oral and anal, oral, anal, vaginal, over and over again (at least it seemed that way) with Angelina. And what a trouper she was. Little Angelina would've made a porn star proud. But then the flogging began, the welts appeared, and I really started to cringe. But wait, there's more! Micah's friend Cole is an expert with hot wax--drip, drip, drip...ouch! But Angelina loves the pain, so it was all good. Sheesh. How this woman could even move the next day was beyond me. So if any of that creeps you out or turns you off, I'm here to tell you that you can easily skip those chapters, and it won't make a bit of difference in the story. All those 50 pages devoted to that one night of sexual excess just demonstrate how far Angelina will go for Micah. The girl was nuts about him. That's not to say that she didn't love doing that, because she was a sub into the whole pleasure/pain thing, but I think she would've done anything, Micah asked her to do. There are a few more scenes in the book where Micah uses the flogger on Angel and vice versa (these two are pain junkies), but there were some scenes of real emotional and sexual tenderness too (thank God). While a lot of the book dealt with Micah and Angel's sexual "journey" and if Micah could ever forgive himself over his wife and friend's death and really start to live again, there was that little plot point about Angelina's stalker. I was happy to see that Angelina became sort of a kick-ass heroine in the end, and was able to stand up for herself. So yes, I was expecting the worst with this book, knowing it was going to include some things that I hate to read about (sexual pain), but it wasn't too bad, And dare I say some of it was darn HOT! I liked Angelina, I liked Micah for the most part, I loved seeing all the characters from the other Sweet books and how they treated Angelina like one of their own, and I liked the suspense part of the book. I generally like Maya Banks's writing style, and even when she goes overboard with the kink, I can forgive her. She writes a pretty decent, fast-paced story. So for this one, a solid 4 stars. Warning: This book contains explicit language and sex, including oral and anal, m/f/m ménage, m/f/m/m? ménage (no m/m interaction), flogging to the point of welts and pain, the use of some sex toys, and...gee, am I forgetting anything? Oh yeah, some bondage. And a little violence. Obviously not for the faint of heart. Micah...

    I am upgrading the book to 4 stars instead of the 3 I originally gave it because I keep coming back to reread it. PROS: - I find the love story very appealing and sweet. - There are some BDSM sex scenes that are amazingly hot, I loved them. I actually thing that those kinky sex scenes are the main reason I keep rereading Sweet Temptation. Let me explain, it is not just for the sex, but also because how that sexual relationship is transmitted through the book. It could have come across as porn, I am upgrading the book to 4 stars instead of the 3 I originally gave it because I keep coming back to reread it. PROS: - I find the love story very appealing and sweet. - There are some BDSM sex scenes that are amazingly hot, I loved them.

Let me explain, it is not just for the sex, but also because how that sexual relationship is transmitted through the book. It could have come across as porn, but it doesn't; it’s about their sexual needs, about who they are. I found it beautiful. “How do you know what I want? You've never asked.” - The group of friends on these books is really incredible, the camaraderie, friendship and loyalty between all of them is truly enviable and it gives this series an underlying felling of love, family and safety. It wouldn’t be the same without them and I appreciate immensely that they are always present in each book. CONS: - I would have liked more insight into Micah’s mind, and I really disliked the part where he went all drama-queen talking about rape after having sex with Angelina, I get the self-loathing but the rest was completely unnecessary in my opinion. “Guilt is bullshit. I don't want it. Don't need it.” - The subplot was cliche and predictable. It would have been nice something more original and unexpected. Audiobook: I enjoyed the audiobook. I think that the narrator (Caroline Wintour) did a great job transmitting the emotions of each character. The first time I read the book I actually READ it, the rest of the times I listened to the audiobook. If I come back to this book I will listen to the audiobook again, but I do believe that it can be better enjoyed if it is read instead of listen (at least for the first time). “I love you Micah. You may not want it. You may not need it. But you'll always have it. It doesn't come with any strings or expectations. It's given freely.” I would recommend reading this series from the beginning. Micah’s personality can be better understood that way, as well as his friends’ behavior. I am confused right now as why I didn't give these books more stars back when I read them first, I absolutely enjoy this series. “I never want you to know another day without my love, Angel girl.” P.S.: If you don’t enjoy reading about BDSM relationships I wouldn't recommend this book. There is “pain” and shared sex in it, so be warned. Books 1 and 3 are lighter. “You make me want. You make me want things I've never wanted.” Sweet Persuasion (Sweet #2) Sweet Addiction Temptation (Sweet #6)

Ramblings: I'm gonna Series: 4th in the Sweet Series (ongoing) Sensuality: XXX Reason for Reading: Maya Banks is my crack Plot: Angelina has been in love with Micah, her brother's best friend, for ever. However, things are complicated because Micah was in a three-way marriage with the brother and another woman. He still mourns their deaths 3 yrs later. Angelina has been keeping tabs on Micah and thinking that the time is finally right, she goes to him in Houston with a stalker (natch!) on her trail. Ramblings: I'm gonna get to the smex later because there sure is a lot of it. Micah was introduced in the very first book of this series and I know that his story has been greatly anticipated. I personally didn't have any high expectations because that almost always leads to disappointment and this kept me in good stead because I did like this book. Readers of my reviews know that I do wubs me some good smut. However, I can easily see other readers complaining that the development of the actual romance is weak and they would be right. Micah DOES have a tragic past but he is basically another Rome from Linda Howard's Sarah's Child . If you haven't read this infamous book (HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING UNDER A ROCK?), it's basically the story of one of those alpha males who can never, ever risk themselves emotionally because they are such delicate little flowers. And they tell this to the heroine over and over again (well, maybe not in those exact words). After a while, I usually starts barking "Suck it up, Princess!"at the hero. To be fair, Micah isn't nearly as whiny as Linda Howard's Rome because Micah & Angelina don't talk much until the Big Talk at the end. Instead, every time a conversation starts, Little Micah usually takes over and its wham-bam-thank-you-maam. But without the thank-you. Maya Banks (MB) has mentioned in her tweets that this story is the "kinkiest" of the series and I would say that it's true. The level of BDSM in this series has not been consistent. It was lighter in books 1 and 3, heavier in book 2 - Sweet Persuasion (with its controversial public whipping and humiliation.) In ST, there was more emphasis on the SM part of the BDSM. Angelina got off on pain and Micah liked doling it. Altho, I don't care for BDSM in my romantica, I can bear reading it as long as long as none of the following is shown: pissing/marking, lots of bloodletting, branding, or impaling any body part to wood. There is no urine or cruxifcation in the book but I definitely think MB glossed over the description of the bloodletting since Angelina is whipped so often. Another Ewwww moment glossed over - but one that came to my mind anyway - is all that funky tasting going on with so many different semen squirting & mixing during a five-some sex episode. Oh, did I forget to mention the five-some sex? Micah is a sharer and he gets off on sharing Angelina with other men. One of the men is Cole, who will probably get his own story in this series one of these days, and I gotta say that he is a lot kinkier than I was led to believe from his gentleman act in book 3: Sweet Seduction . I know that I should be more agog than I was by this five-some but I already went thru it all in Qwillia Rain's Meeting a Neighbor's Needs . BTW, I recommend the Qwillia ebook if you like sharing stories and can't find your copy of Shel Silverstein's The Giving Tree at the moment. Grade: B- Content warning: well, let's see . . . -lots, and I mean, LOTS of flogging/whipping/paddling -lots, and I mean, LOTS of rough forceful fellatio -lots, and I mean, LOTS of rough sex with NO foreplay -lots, and I mean, LOTS of semen spraying -Candle wax burning -Anal Sex -Double Penetration -Fur-lined stocks and other BDSM furniture -Menage sex -Foursome sexual encounter - M/F/M/M + Dildo -M/F/M/M/M sex - this episode was 36 pages long!

    There were maybe 50-80 pages of an actuall story here, and that part I really liked, after the big action after they got the bad guy, the ending vas very nice. Everything else in this book was sex. And I didn't like it much. Threesomes can be hot, I've read a few and liked them, but here... oh boy, there was a fivesome in here lol I don't even know what's it really called, but it was just awfull to read, Micah shared her with some guys, and when I say shared, I don't mean then had sex together, There were maybe 50-80 pages of an actuall story here, and that part I really liked, after the big action after they got the bad guy, the ending vas very nice.

Here, I didn't get that, Micah just got off on the fact that she is "his" and he can do whatever he wants with her. Didn't like it at all.

    WOW, I had liked Micah so much in the other books and I still liked him and could sympathize with him until the half way point of the book. After that, I lost all respect for him. What he put Angelina through crossed the line for me to cowardly, cruel and self centered. Time after time he told her he would only give her sex and it would be for his pleasure only and boy howdy it was. The way he had her be involved in a gang bang and numerous whippings made me sick.

At first I thought Angelina was strong but I hated that she allowed Micah to treat her like she was less than a sex toy with no feelings all in the name of love. Bullshit! I like BDSM as well as the next person, but this crossed the line into torture and I don't care that "she wanted it". Micah was an uncaring Dom and Angelina was an immature ninny. What a disappointment. The only thing I liked was seeing past characters.

    3.75 Angel Girl Stars! I was really looking forward to Micahs story since he was so likeable in the other books. I wont say I didnt like him in this book because sometimes he was sweet and loving and sexy as hell but I also didnt like how he sometimes treated Angelina. It was a real contradiction. There is no need to read any of the books in this series if you dont like BDSM and menage/group sex. I think they were all tastefully done but it isnt for everyone.

I want to always see the guy taking complete care of the female and not mistreating her (unless it is clear that it is that type of book, ie: sex slave/human trafficking). You know in those types of books what you are getting into but otherwise gentlemen, take care of your women!!! There was quite a bit of suspense in this book which is what made it such an interesting story.

    Cheesy and cheesy. Too much sex. Although the sex is very very steamy and alluring, but the formula of the story is the same. Damsel in distress, pathetic plot of stalker or ex boyfriend/ fan, alpha male dominant hero. I think in Sweet series, Maya Banks only focus on the sex aspect. Not on story, not on character. I found this book OK. I am intrigue with Micah when I read the first book. But it runs out he is very confusing character. One minute he feels sorry for himself the next minute he is Cheesy and cheesy. Too much sex. Although the sex is very very steamy and alluring, but the formula of the story is the same.

The entire book was heart shattering, blood gushing, skin tingling erotic. Sweet Temptation is a story about Micah and Angelina. This book is filled with mystery. Despair. Doubt. Betrayal. And I loved every second of it. Micah has been a free-spirited and sexual charged character in all of the prior books. He is funny, sexy, and adores the female body. A total man whore to say the least. Micah has been running from the grief of his best friend, David and his wife, Hannah’s deaths. Fighting against his attraction (notice a pattern here? heh) for Angelina, a tempting and lust filled sexual deviant like himself, he offers her the only thing he can control. Sex. No strings. No feelings. Nothing but sex to be used and abused. Angelina, David’s little sister, not so little now, throws herself into Micah’s life. She’s not the only one running from demons. Angelina runs away, hidden, trying to free herself from a dangerous stalker. The House is her playground and the moment Micah sees her, he wanted her with all the throbbing blood rushing to his groin. As they both share similar kinks, Micah shares her with his friends. The relationships are pretty damned brutal, actually. There were times when I would stop reading and just stare at my kindle in awe. Like .. “Seriously? Holy fkn shit! I can’t even imagine…” but then again .. One must persevere heh She turned to look over her shoulder. “I don’t get to make the choices,” she said quietly. “I belong to Micah. He gave me to you for the night. If I disobey you, if I challenge you, if I tell you no, then I tell him all those things. I disrespect him. And I love him more than life.” I recommend this book to people who .. well I do NOT recommend this book to people who are closed-minded with their eyes so tightly shut that they can’t see the clouds above them. I do recommend this book to anyone that has appreciated the books in this series prior to this one. This book is for ADULTS ONLY! Extremely brutal sexual content. Like .. WHOA worthy. Whoa doesn’t even cover it. Most of the violence in this book is consensual, but that doesn’t make it any less thrilling. Line of the book: “It’s generally known that men are worthless human beings around female tears,” Gray said from across the room. ~Happy reading! http://facebook.com/authortillyslaton

    It's taken four books for me to see the pattern going on here: books 1 and 3 were relatively sweet and tame in their depictions of desire and passion, while books 2 and 4 are hedonistic and intense and not for the sexually timid. So that should give you some idea of what to expect here. Micah Hudson used to be a cop in Florida but for the last few years has worked for a family-run security company in Texas - becoming one of the family in the process. That's about all his friends know about him, It's taken four books for me to see the pattern going on here: books 1 and 3 were relatively sweet and tame in their depictions of desire and passion, while books 2 and 4 are hedonistic and intense and not for the sexually timid. So that should give you some idea of what to expect here. Micah Hudson used to be a cop in Florida but for the last few years has worked for a family-run security company in Texas - becoming one of the family in the process. That's about all his friends know about him, that and that he likes women, likes to share them and enjoy them to the fullest, as long as that doesn't involve a real relationship or revealing anything of his past. Until the day the past finally arrives in Micah's town in the form of Angelina, the younger sister of his best friend David with whom he lived in a blissful, happy ménage à trois with Micah's wife Hannah, a domestic and pleasurable arrangement that ended abruptly when David and Hannah were killed in a car accident. Despite promising David to look out for Angelina should anything happen to him, Micah's grief is such that he desires nothing more than to escape the memories of what he had, and what he lost. When Angelina turns up in his life again, he sees her as David's little sister - and that's the last thing Angelina wants him to see her as. Angelina has always loved Micah, since she was sixteen and living with him and Hannah and David. And she knows him better than anyone: she knows his past, and she knows how he's been dealing with his grief. Feeling responsible for her, and strangely possessive, Micah takes Angelina in and learns in no uncertain terms that she hopes for something more intimate. Micah's tastes in bed sport run to the extreme, but Angelina is more than Micah's match: she can take anything he cares to give. When Micah learns that one of the reasons Angelina left her home was to escape an increasingly threatening stalker, he realises he'll do anything to protect her - and not just because she was David's sister. I enjoy Banks' stories, but I have to leave a great chunk of my own personality at the door when I delve into one. The good news is that I don't mind. It took me four books to really appreciate their Southern American flavour, that they really couldn't be set anywhere else and be plausible. It's not that they're full of Southern "culture", whatever that may be (well, they have their own style of food and way of talking etc., don't they); it's in the characters: the men are big, muscular, domineering, over-protective, gentlemanly but also "manly" - masculine in the cliched sense of beer-swigging, footy-watching, ute-driving machismo. The women are a mix of sassy and sweet, brazen and genteel, "well-bred" and classy or slightly trashy but "good at heart". Ugh I'm degenerating into pathetic stereotype as I write this - such is what happens when you start talking about something, let's face it, inherently cheesy. I am quite impressed, actually, in how Banks manages to avoid ruffling my feminist sensibilities: which is quite the achievement when you think about it. From the first book, actually, she's had that "agenda" of creating female characters who are confident enough to own up to their sexuality, and own up to their needs in having a Big Strong Man take care of them. I am a feminist myself, but that means I can understand that there's nothing really wrong in this. I wouldn't want it for myself, it's not in my nature or in the way I was raised, but that doesn't mean it's wrong for other women to need what balances themselves. What's "empowering" (and I shudder to use the word, as grossly co-opted by management-speak and the self-esteem movement as it is) is having these very different women (different in personality, but very similar because of their nationality, culture, upbringing etc.) embrace their own sexuality. And I'm all for that. Angelina is a case in point. She comes into the story fully in charge of her own needs and desires - it's Micah who can't handle the thought of his best friend's little sister enjoying the kind of BDSM he does. (For the uninitiated, "BDSM" simply stands for "bondage, discipline, dominance, submission, Sadism, Masochism" rather like how GBLT stands for gay-bi-lesbian-transgendered: a handy list to capture variance.) Angelina and Micah both enjoy the kind of pleasure it's possible to get from pain, but that's only part of it. There's a rather beautiful and surprisingly gentle exploration of their sexuality, something that could just as easily be taudry, grotesque and obscene. I didn't find Angelina to be as confused and like a doormat at some other readers - she did not strike me as desperate, not in the derogatory sense they meant. Perhaps it helped having read Sweet Persuasion, the story of Serena and Damon, in which Serena hesitantly faces her needs and desires and Damon teaches her how a woman comfortable in being submissive is stronger than the man who dominates her. It seems like a contradiction in terms, but when you're reading it it makes sense. It becomes romantic. (And you're wondering how I could call myself a feminist, I bet! You'd have to be inside my head, or wait patiently till I can articulate myself better. :) ) For sure the plot can make me roll my eyes - it seems convenient that there would be something putting Angelina's life in danger, because we all know it's not until they think they're going to lose a woman that they realise how much they love her - it's a time-honoured cliche and still highly effective. But that and other cliches aside, Micah and Angelina are believable and plausible because these books are all about character development; plot is just a structure, a frame, on which to bring them together and get them to work through their issues. Because they will certainly have issues - in this case, Micah is privately, emotionally repressed. There's definitely some sweetness here too, alongside the hero's angst, but the story wasn't as intense as book 2, which dealt with a similar intensity. It's predictable - there weren't even any red herrings regarding the identity of Angelina's stalker - but her resilience and strength gives it fresh life. There's plenty more goodness to come, too. Following the pattern I mentioned at the start, I can say with confidence that the next book will be a sweet one dealing with Connor, while book 6 will be another wicked instalment detailing Cole's story. Yeah I got it all figured out. ;) The Sweet Series: Sweet Surrender (Faith and Gray) Sweet Persuasion (Serena and Damon) Sweet Seduction (Julie and Nathan)

    Hated this book. Nothing sweet or tempting about it. I like to have some romance and love in my erotica and this one just didn't have it. Perhaps it's a matter of personal preference and lifestyle choices, but I just cannot see how love can exist with someone as dominant and messed up as Micah. I also think that Angelina nees to have her head examined as well.

The sex scenes were definitely very hot and well-written, but they still left a bad taste afterwards because the gangbang scene, while hot, was also very cold in terms of emotions. My honest reaction while reading it was that Angelina was some very high-priced and hard-core porn star or hooker in training. There was no concern shown for her well-being and they treated her as simply an orifice--or three orifices. Yes, the writing was hot, but there was nothing "sweet" about it and quite frankly, nothing very "tempt"ing either. Micah needs therapy to get over his guilt issues, not sex therapy. Micah seriously needs therapy if he likes to watch the woman he is in love and obsessed with be gangbanged roughly. And Angelina just comes across like someone who was sexually and emotionally abused as a child. I don't understand how else you would get off and think that you enjoy having 4 or 5 guys take turns fucking you, pouring wax on you, whipping you while in between watching football?

    Ok I finished this book, but really it was a struggle. yes, I know its erotica and yes that means that there usually is little or no plot, but I was really disapointed in this book. IT started off all well and good and I was really intrested in the motivation of the main heroines motivation for taking the choices she did, but near the end I just skipped most of it. Yeah the sex scenes were rather steamy and not something I usually read, but then I just didn't care.

The fact that the Heroine was willing to be used as nothing more than a play thing for the hero and his mates really began to bug me. OK so it was a bit of S and M and dom and submissive, but I just ended up not respecting the female at all, which is a shame really because she started off really intresting and strong, but as soon as the hero became possessive she melted like butter. NEedless to say, this book isn't on my to keep pile and I'm not in a rush to read any more by this author.

    I can't carry on with this, I am only a quarter of the way through and am abandoning it! I am seriously beginning to wonder if I want to continue on with this series but I am interested in Connor so will look for his story and I hope (and pray) that is not hard core.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I knew Micah's story would be the most emotional of the four books and my gut was right on the money. It's also the most difficult to review. It was obvious to me from the first book, Sweet Surrender, that under all the charm Micah oozed with the women, it was a mask from a past he wanted to forget. Now it's easy to see how and why he didn't form strong, emotional relationships with women and that it was just about sex.

It's also the most difficult to review. It was obvious to me from the first book, Sweet Surrender, that under all the charm Micah oozed with the women, it was a mask from a past he wanted to forget. Now it's easy to see how and why he didn't form strong, emotional relationships with women and that it was just about sex. In a fatal car accident, Micah lost his wife (Hannah) and best friend (David). How do you overcome such loss? For Micah, it was moving to a new state, forming a new life with new friends and mindless kinky sex. And let me say for the record that out of all of the men, Micah is the one that brought with the kinkfest! Meet Angelina (David's little sister)who arrives back in Micah's life, all grown up. Angelina is now a beautiful, voluptuous woman who by the way has loved Micah for years and is determined to make him her's in any capacity. Once Micah gets through the initial shock, and boy is it a shocking moment when they meet again, he is in a battle with himself being aroused and disgusted over his attraction to "David's little sister". Angelina is a strong woman. She became my favorite of all the women in the series. She knows exactly what she wants and has no fear going after it. Angelina and Micah both "own" their eccentric sexual nature. Angelina longed to submit to Micah in every way and when the sexual relationship began with the two, Micah made it clear to her that sex was all he could give her. Micah was a "taker". He took and he pushed Angelina to the absolute extreme, emotionally and physically and gave nothing in return. The only part that I didn't care for in the story was the 5-way that was 36 freakin pages long! It was hardcore SM/BDSM and it was a little hard to swallow (pun intended)all that Angelina submitted to physically/mentally from that encounter. She didn't waver or complain because her mindset was pleasing Micah but it was a little extreme for me. I was wore out for her and felt like she needed a hell of a lot of alcohol and muscle relaxers to get over that kinkfest! (And let's just say that Micah made Damon look like a kitty cat!) The story, beyond the kink, was very well engaging with a twist from Angelina's past that comes to haunt her. In the end Micah was able to let his strong guard down, put his demons to rest and love again. Micah's epiphany: "He stared back down at her face. This....this was what love looked like. Vulnerable, yet strong. Constant, unwavering. She'd fought her way back to him. She was beautiful inside and out. She was his and only his." PS-Damon still owns me! ;)

    I had a few issues with this one, most notably, the D/s relationship. There didn't seem to be a give and take. Micah didn't appear to be having sex or dominating for anything other than his own pleasure (including bringing in multiple partners for Angel without any seeming reason for it). He never said anything along the lines of "This makes me happy to see you pleasured". Nope, just ordered Angelina around and treated her awfully.

Note that there are several scenes w/multiple partners, including a m/f/m/m/m scene. Where I found, once again, no reason explained for it. It's always been my understanding that a true D/s relationship works because the Dom truly cares for making the experience on that the sub loves. This seemed to be all about Micah taking and giving nothing back. And although Angelina notes to herself that she's enjoying it, I just didn't buy it. Three stars because I like Banks' voice, and enjoy the secondary characters (although Julie almost seemed to be a caricature of herself). Also, Micah does admit his mixed up feelings and does his share of groveling at the end. It just wasn't soon enough and enough quantity for me. I was disappointed in this one and saddened because of it. I really like the other books in this series.

    Since this is labelled as an erotic romance, I actually found this book very disturbing. It was way, way too harsh for me. In my opinion there was no romance between the characters. Only a blind, raging lust on the hero's part, and the heroine's willingness to do anything to satisfy him. Just to fulfil him so he'll keep her in his life.

If it had been, maybe that could have made a difference for me. But I couldn't stand Micah. He was flat out mean and selfish with Angelina, both emotionally and sexually, pretty much right until the end of the book. Most of the menage scenes made me cringe so badly (because I was sure Angelina had to be in absolute agony) that I had to skim over them just to get through it. I found the men's actions cruel and sadistic to the point that I couldn't forgive Micah for allowing it to continue. Actually, I thought the brief scenes between her and Cole were much more romantic and tender than anything that happened between her and Micah. Not exactly what I had hoped for when I bought the book. This is the first Maya Banks book I've ever read, so it's possible this one was just happened to be particularly hard core and I might like some of her others better. But I'm not sure I want to find out.

    The sadomasochism in this one is way too extreme and requires a lot of suspension of disbelief, but I could appreciate the classic clichéd he-treats-her-like-shit-for-the- whole- book-until-the-last-page- when-he-figures-out-he-loves-her-and-grovels-a-bit storyline.

As mentioned by many other reviewers the sex scenes/gang bangs were horrible and degrading, but while reading I was distracted by having to suspend my disbelief. Angelina endured an amazing amount of pain and sexual use (and I do mean USE, Holy shit!) over a short period of time. No rest or healing time. I was mostly keeping track of her injuries and thinking things like OMG! how is she still conscious, her back must be a bloody mess, do they have a medic waiting or something? *SPOILERS* The only mildly hot kink scene was the one where Angelina dominates Micah. Mostly because she was very loving and caring; it really illustrated how she was a much better dominant than him. Micah was a sadistic selfish jerk, plain and simple. Nothing lovable about him. He wasn’t complex, just whiny about his past. Get over it, asshole, people die. There was no reason for him to treat Angelina as horrible as he did. The groveling at the end was too little too late. Angelina was a rather pathetic, desperate for love kind of character, I couldn’t respect her at all, but I do feel she kind of got her own back in the end, by kicking her stalkers ass and by having her “I choose me and my baby”- moment later in the hospital.

    This book in the Sweet Series was so incredibly disappointing. I had been looking forward to hearing Micah's story ever since he was mentioned in the other books. Banks' Sweet series is an interesting series since the books intertwine so much. You have a large set of main characters that are used in all the books, and she ties up the loose ends of the relationships in earlier books in the next one.

So I already knew a lot about Micah, and was really excited to hear more about his past, and to see him find love. Unfortunately, this book was a big disappointment for many, many reasons. For one, I thought the sex scenes were terrible. I want to go on record by saying that I have no problem at all with BDSM or really explicit sex. I read lots of erotic romance, along with quite a bit of menage and BDSM (along with mainstream romance!). In this particular book, the sex scenes seemed to get close to what I'd consider pornography. Not because they were explicit or about BDSM, but because they seemed to go on and on and have little to do with the core romance. The sex didn't really contribute to the story, and I actually found myself skimming pages and pages of sexual description. And what could have been hot, had Banks included more of the emotions involved, was not much of a turn-on. Plus, this particular BDSM was very degrading. In most of the BDSM I've read, the submissive individual has lots of power in his/her own right. In this one, the character of Micah becomes almost distasteful, which is not a good thing in a romance, erotic or not. You have many sex scenes that all about hurting the main female character, or simply about satisfying the male. How is that about the romantic relationship? [A few spoilers coming next.] I have a feeling I know what Banks was trying to do. I *think* she was trying to set Micah apart from a previous character in the Sweet series, named Damon, who also likes BDSM. Perhaps she wanted to underline his deep turmoil by making the sex especially harsh. Unfortunately, I think she ended up turning the reader away from the hero. While all heroes have flaws, Micahs became much to overwhelming. You can't forgive the kind of flaws she created by dedicating a short number of pages at the end to an apology. Note to Ms. Banks: Learn the definition of the word "rape". At one point Micah goes on and on about how he "raped" or practically raped the main character. Really annoying. There is no such thing as a "sorta rape". There were no rape scenes in this story, so why is the character going on and on about rape? I'm a stickler for using that term appropriately, and it made me very angry at the writer that she used the term the way she did. Simply put, much of this book is bad BDSM porn. Which is unfortunate, since Banks did a wonderful job with BDSM in Sweet Persuasion, which tells the story of Damon and Serena. Clearly, Banks can do a good job with BDSM. But I think in this case, she tried to step it up a notch and failed miserably. Since I've already read Sweet #5, I'm looking forward to Sweet #6 and hoping that Banks gets back on track and makes things work again. Why is this series so uneven?

    Did not like this one at all! Although the last 2 chapters it got a whole lot better, there still was not enough time for Micah and Angelina to redeem themselves. IMO. But I would still like to read the others in this series because there were a few characters in this one that I was intrigued by. Wondering how they got together and their stories in general. But this story, I would not recommend.

    This book is hot stuff. Lots of bdsm action, multiple sex partners. This is a dominant/submissive type of story, so be sure this is your cup of tea. Very good story, good suspense. The guys in this series are smokin' hot and extremely alpha. The women are smart and sexy and very independent.

But the characters, themselves, were interesting. Micha, was interesting to me. As a man, him and I wouldn't work out (foreplay is important to me.

Still like Selina's story best, even though it deeply disturbed me when I first read it. Something I really didn't like was our glimpses of the other couples. Could the men be any more protective to the point of annoying? And the women seemed a little less likable than they were in their own stories (other than Faith, she is so sweet, but Julie, yeesh). Not that I didn't appreciate the completion to Nathan and Julie's love story, but I really didn't find that I liked Julie at all or even Selina when we see them interacting with Angelina.

If this was not fiction she would not have been able to walk for days. The whippings were just as bad. I am going to mark you, Angelina. Not just red welts here and there. It will hurt.

I imagine her skin coming off. The aftercare is a warm bath. The next day Micah uses the whip on Angelina. No rest or healing for the poor girl. The day after that she gets whipped again. Micah stood and walked around the desk. She glanced up and saw him removing his belt. Now she get beaten with a belt until she sucks off his friend. I get that she is into pain but there is no way she can move around like nothing happend. She would be more then sore. So again it's good that this is only fiction. I just did not feel any love or affection fromn Micah for Angel until the end. Despite all this I did enjoy the book. It did push the envelope but the writing was excellent.

    I have to say that Sweet Temptation, out of all the books in this series, was the one that I had looked forward to the most. I love Micah; he is the main charcter in this entire series and there was something about him that I loved. This book does not disappoint, but it is not for the faint of heart. Micah is indeed the master at kink, but Angelina is his mirror image and if you note that fact when reading this book it will make much more sense.

Angelina takes him on like a bull by by the horns, and does not give up until she gets what she wants. Him. Lots of great, smoking hot love scenes in this one. We get to see what everyone else that we have come to know is up to as well. Faith/Gray, Damon/ Serena, Nathan/ Julie and also Connor, who plays a much more active role in this, most likely setting up his own book next. We see more of Cole too, which tells me we might get a book for him too. Some suspense in this one as well in the end and then a great shocker that you will have to read to believe. Wonderful book about being able to have a 2nd chance at love and finding out that it is OK to love again when you have been burned once. 5 stars!! Conner next; April 2011.

    I have to say first that I thoroughly enjoyed this entire series! EXCELLENT! Now, in regards to Micah's story, I knew that is was going to be a little bit more rough than the previous books, yes even Damon's, because I knew that Micah was a tortured soul. That said, I had no idea just how tortured. At times even I cringed at the hardcore BDSM in this book, it was VERY intense at times and tended to raise my feminine hackles.
