Seducing the Girl Next Door
The Bencher Family Series # 3.5
By Inara Scott
When Jenna Kellington was fourteen, her first high school boyfriend—her first love—moved away. Now the years have passed. Jenna has been married, a mother of three, and divorced. But it took a business trip to Beijing, China where Jenna finally reunites with Simon Hastings...finding a pleasure she never dreamed existed.
Billionaire venture capitalist Simon Hastings swore he would never be like his father, moving from place to place and never settling down. Still, he's never forgotten Jenna, or that spark they once had that's grown into very adult desire. With every touch, every caress, Simon shows Jenna how to let go. How to feel pleasure. How to own her own sensuality. But Simon will never settle down, or take the risk of love.
And now it's too late. For Jenna has broken her own rule, and fallen fast—and hard—for the man she can never have...
Mel's Quickie Review-
Seducing the Girl Next Door is a novella in the Bencher Family Series and tells the story of Ross Bencher's ex-wife, Jenna and her surprise reunion with her first love, Simon. I loved getting to know Jenna, and Simon was just as swoon-worthy as the rest of Inara's fictional men are. This was a quick read for me and I loved every moment of it.
Inara Scott writes my kind of romance and I just adore her; the characters are always real, flawed and fleshed out (and sexy as hell), the story is always interesting and heartfelt and the heat is always sizzling. I can't wait to see what she releases next!
My Rating:I wrote my first book when I was in high school--a romance called "A Wild and Stormy Passion," which featured swordplay, kidnapping, a pirate heroine, and lots of naughty bits (that came entirely from my adolescent imagination!). Since then, I've written young adult novels and adult romances of the category, contemporary, and fantasy varieties. My books are romantic, sensual, and unconventional.
I am a dabbler and an emotional sponge. I can't read scary books or anything with an unhappy ending. I reserve the right to enjoy country music, puppies, true love, and happily ever after.
If you're perusing my Goodreads shelves, you should know I only review books I want to share the word about. If you ask me, life's too short to read something you don't enjoy.
