Sandy’s Review January 25, 2014
4 of 5 stars
Author: Ginger Voight
Rachel Dennehy had a crazy thought. If she could just start over somewhere else, she could forget about all the ghosts that chased her. When an email landed in her inbox, to tutor a difficult student whose father just happened to be a prominent businessman, the apple was a bit too enticing for Rachel to refuse. She moves to Beverly Hills, where she is tasked with turning around young Jonathan Fullerton’s bad attitude, one that stems directly from his parents’ ugly divorce and even uglier custody battle.
That Drew Fullerton is one of the handsomest and most eligible bachelors in the world means nothing to Rachel. Drew’s brother, Alex, however, assumes otherwise. This sets the two immediately at odds, though they both have young Jonathan’s best interest at heart. Unfortunately the more he tries to warn her away from Drew, the closer he ultimately propels her toward her charming boss.
Rachel stays solely to protect young Jonathan, trapping her into this sticky web despite her own history of loss and betrayal. How long will she last? More importantly, what will she be required to give to save these Fullerton men who continually tug her in three different directions?
The saga begins with the first book, titled “Enticed,” in a trilogy of three, full-length novels to be released over three months in early 2014.
Ginger Voight turns up the angst in this series with a hot triangle between two very different and very appealing brothers. Who will get their HEA? And which one will pay the ultimate price for love?
Those who can’t abide triangles, cheaters, cliffhangers or tragedies, are encouraged to proceed with caution.

Talk about your family drama. This book as it all.

The email is from Drew Fullerton, a prominent business man located in California He has made an offer that is pretty hard to refuse. He has offered her a teaching position, for his son Jonathan. She thinks this position is to good to be true so she brushes it off at first. Her friend Nancy continues to try to fix her up on dates with her friends. Finally Rachel gets sick of it and takes her spring vacation and heads to California to check out this new position.
Jonathan: I felt really bad for him because he his torn between his mother and his father. This is what happens with divorce.

Elise: Drew’s ex-wife who lives with her tennis instructor boyfriend. She continues to seek custody of her son. Based on her actions, she gets 1 supervised visit per day. As the story unfolds, will she get full custody of her son?
I loved Rachel and Jonathan’s chemistry from the first time they met. Within the first week she didn’t want to leave him. She accepts the position and then all the family drama unfolds. Even with all the drama, she continues to stand her ground and always has Jonathan’s best interest at heart. She is a very strong individual even though she has a troubled past.
What is Drew’s motives for hiring Rachel? Is Alex being sincere when he feels Rachel is being used? How does all of this affect poor Jonathan?
I gave this book 4 stars. I couldn’t put the book down. I was always wondering what was going to happen next. I can’t wait to read book 2.
