Or was it?
Seduced begins almost two years after Ari starts her new life. She is teaching at a community college, and when she asks the class whether they have any questions for her, Rafe is there and has only one: Will you go on a date with me?
What is Ari’s answer? You’ll find out in the third installment of Melody Anne’s New York Times best-selling series, Surrender.
Along with Ari’s story, we will see what happens when Shane and Lia become trapped together on an island when a tropical storm hits, and how the sparks will fly again.
And we can’t forget about Rachel Palazzo, who isn’t looking for love, but finds it in a shocking way.
This story continues the lives of Ari, Lia and Rachel. These three women are resilient, determined, and worth loving. The question is, whether the men in their lives strong enough to keep them.
What I liked: The story progresses and the characters are the story. While Ari and Rafe's story continues, Seduced gets more in-depth with Rafe's sisters, Lia and and Rachel. There's a good twist with Rachel which I had hoped would come to pass. I like how Ms Anne portrays the strong, resilient side of her female characters.
What I didn't like: The men in this series can be complete jerks. I'm all for macho but not macho stupidity. Not my favorite in the series due to all the different points of view. I guess I got used to Ari and Rafe being the stars of the series.
It's a solid read and moves the story along. The next and final book in the series, Scorched, is due out 11 November 2013.
The Kindle price at $3.99 is solid but the paperback at $8.51 is just a tad high
