Harley Stephens is ready to move forward in life. She has big plans and she cannot let TJ Wilder stop her. Harley has been half in love with TJ just about all her life but she knows he will never reciprocate. However, when TJ and Harley travel into the wilderness in order to protect a local coyote pack, things between them become even more complicated. Truths are revealed and feelings intensify. But are TJ and Harley ready for such a change?
INSTANT TEMPTATION is the final book in the Wilder family trilogy and it is simply marvelous! All the wonderful chemistry between Harley and TJ that was seen in the previous books definitely explodes with quick wit and burgeoning emotions. Jill Shalvis knows how to build sexual tension and in this book she does a bang up job. The repressed feelings between these two characters come to a boil at just the right moments in the plot, leading to not only relationship growth but some very sexy love scenes. Jill Shalvis takes full advantage of every moment of her story. From the very funny brotherly moments between the Wilder clan, to the true enjoyment of the outdoors, and of course, the romance itself, no scene is wasted. TJ and Harley both have some very strong defenses when it comes to love and relationships but they also really want each other and that longing plays out on the pages in a way that is true to their characters. There is no bickering; rather their repartee is sexy and fun, embarrassing and sweet.
INSTANT TEMPTATION shines from start to finish. This is a story that tackles the difficult facets of relationships but also wonderfully highlights how fun falling in love can be. And that, more than anything, is the reason to read INSTANT TEMTPTATION. Jill Shalvis has written a wonderful story chronicling the wonders and joys of falling in love.
