Review

I really love sherry woods novel i had read a few of her novel and love it including this novel temptation. Callie smith came from generation of family whom does farming so she eager to brake the family tradition by going away to continues study to the big city when the first chances arrive. But thing did not really go well with both her marriage and carrer at the wall street that she love very much but thing turn upside down for her when she was pursues by jason kane whom want her to be the leading role for a soap opera and it get even worse when her sister dump (that what it look to me) their mother at her doorstep after not getting respond by callie to chip-in helping to care for their. (Callie relationship with her mother is not very good since the day she left home).

When reading this novel i love callie character the most as it make realize i had the same problem as her communication wih my mum sometime and i sure alot more people does have the same problem to but running away from it does not really solve the problem but infect it will create more gap between you and ours parent. Some we often forget that we simply had to just communicate with them and listen to their need and concern.

Assistant D.A. Savannah Smith, her jealous sister Susan, and society wife Megan Vandermeer are old friends – and sometimes bitter rivals. Then one horrifying night, Megan is kidnapped. Now, Savannah and Susan must move beyond the secrets and mistrust that have stood between them for years and team up to find their friend.

While following a dangerous trail filled with lies and deception, the sisters find themselves mesmerized by two charismatic men. One is Jared Snow, the radio star with the voice Savannah cannot resist. The other is Sam Craig, the tough detective whose rugged sensuality Susan cannot deny.

Shocking revelations will force each woman to reassess her life…and how far she is willing to go for the man she loves.

Review by Me

The novel explored around sibling rivalry and friendship between savannah, susan, megan and how savannah tried to solve the mystery behind megan kidnapping whom also happen to society wife on one night when she was listening to the dj jared snow on country radio (his voice is soothing and sexy). Savannah on other hand had a very successful career D.A but always very busy (all the time busy), susan on the other hand had always been popular among the men but always comparing herself to her successful sibling sister of her.

I must admit when i first saw this book i first thought nothing of it and was thinking twice if i should take this book (the book don’t really provide the synopsis) but after reading it i quite like the book as it explore more deep relationship between sibling, best-friend and how successful people (women in this book) cope with their love life and how far would some people people go just to save themselves and their love even if it mean to betray your own friend or love one.

Sometime having someone beside you to just love and share all our sorrow it all that matter.
