Book Review: Recipe for Temptation by Gina Gordon


Book Description

She’s the woman he loves to hate.
Penn Foster wants a lot of things. She wants a spot on the board of a charitable foundation. She wants to win the stupid, plastic family trophy. And more than anything, she wants her tall, hot, and brooding boss naked in her bed. Now, on a Hawaiian vacation with her family, she’s desperately trying not to think about how he’d sound whispering dirty things in her ear.
He’s the man she can’t have…or can she?
Cole Murphy keeps himself locked down, away from the press and out of the spotlight. Still haunted by a traumatic childhood, his ability to trust has been decimated. Penn, with her sexy body and confidence, is the only person able to drag him out of his shell. Which is why he crashes her vacation and accepts her proposition for no-strings sex. But is the inescapable heat building between them a delicious temptation, or will it end in total disaster?

**I received an ARC from NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review**

This was my first book that I've read by Gina Gordon and this most definitely won't be my last.  Recipe for Temptation was a great, sexy day read.  I really enjoyed reading about Penn and Cole, and how their relationship shifted from harmless flirting at work by Penn to a really intense sexual relationship that pushed Cole's boundaries (in a good way).  

I ABSOLUTELY loved Penn.  She was a woman who knew what she wanted (in and out of bed) and wasn't afraid to say it... except to her family.  She hid her true self from her family for fear of disappointing them. Cole pushed Penn to show them her true, wonderful self.

And Cole... man.  He is a guy that had a pretty crappy childhood that left him a very private and shy (for a lack of a better word) man.  But being with Penn is showing him that it is okay to dirty talk and voice what he wants.  

Recipe for Temptation is a perfect opposites attract story!!
