Review of Sweet Temptation (Players #3) by Jaine Diamond

“Did you see his butt?”


Genre: Contemporary Romance, Rock Star Romance

Length: 557 Pages

POV: Alternating First Person


Bodyguards don’t fall in love.

This job comes with benefits.
I knew that from the moment I laid eyes on her.
Summer Sorensen, party queen. Super-hot DJ and soon-to-be-rockstar.

She’s sexy, sassy, strong…
But she’s in danger.

I know she doesn’t want to hire me.
She doesn’t want to need me, but she does.
And this job is getting more complicated by the hour.

Damsel in distress? Yeah, right.
Try ball breaker. Seductress.

I never mess around with my clients.
But I’ve never been so tempted before.

They call me alpha… boss… hero… because I’m always in control.
It’s my job to protect her, and I do my job well.

But how the hell do I resist her?

Sweet Temptation is a smoking-hot, suspenseful bodyguard romance, with a badass protective alpha hero and the sassy, irresistible heroine who melts his icy heart. It is the third full-length novel in the Players rockstar romance series, and can be read as a standalone or as part of the series.

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

If you’ve read the Dirty series or the first two books in the Players series then you already know who Summer is. She’s DJ Summer, life of the party, always ready for a good time, but in Sweet Temptation we get to delve deeper into the woman behind the music. She’s a strong woman with a heart. And an eye for her new bodyguard’s butt.

“Did you seriously just pour a drink on a man to get him to stop talking to me?”

Ronan was done taking assignments, he was going to work strictly in the office, but that plan didn’t even last twenty-four hours. He knew from the second he saw her that he wasn’t walking away. Of course, he wouldn’t exactly look deeper as to why.

Two strong personalities clashing together for the sake of a single outcome adds to the tension between Summer and Ronan, but whether she wants to admit it or not, she is in danger, and she does need Ronan. However, once he gets her to finally understand that fact, they’re already on their way to being in over their heads.

“This is Ronan. He’s a superhero. Super Ronan.”

Summer is a fun, energetic, overall happy person and it sucks seeing some of that leaver her, even if only temporary. Ronan, on the other hand, is always stoic. It’s business, business, business with him…until Summer cracks his hard exterior.

Like all of the Jaine Diamond books I’ve read this one is no different when it comes to having the perfect mixture of heart, sass, suspense, and delectable ravishings. With a creepy stalker just out of grasp, blurred professional lines, and the possibility of a little MC drama this book does not disappoint.
