The Temptation: A Kindred Novel

The Temptation - Alisa Valdes Once again I find myself frustrated because I really wanted to like this book but I didn't. :( The cover is cool and the summary intriguing but the story itself was lacking for me. The romance felt like it happened too quickly and was silly at times. Travis' secret is revealed too soon and isn't nearly as suspenseful or creepy (in a cool way) as it should've been. I found Shane to be overly dramatic and annoying and while I'm all for Team Soul-Mate, there needed to be more conflict for me between her, Logan and Travis to make it "believable". Kelsey is a strong female character but unfortunately, we don't get to appreciate her very much until last part of the book. Logan was all over the place as a character and seemed cartoonish to me. Travis was the most believable out of all of them which is ironic when you think about it but even he was overboard a lot of the time in "cowboyness". The spirituality in here is a mixed bag with elements of Christianity, mysticism and the occult which can be confusing and hard to keep track of. The ending certainly leaves it open for the next book in the series but it seems predictable to me. Time will tell though.
