★ SYNOPSIS ★
Stranded and alone with not one, but two wickedly enticing men.
Ava arrives at the airport, expecting to board a commercial flight to Puerto Rico. But a plane ticket isn’t waiting for her. Instead, she finds a guy with dark curly hair wearing seriously ratty jeans and holding a sign with her name on it.
He may not look like a pilot, but he is. And he’s her ride.
So now it’s just Nash and her on a tiny tin can of a plane flying over the Atlantic. When a thunderstorm comes out of nowhere, it proves to be too much for the little aircraft.
Ava and Nash plunge from the sky and end up on an uncharted deserted island.
As if that isn’t bad enough, Ava starts to desire more than just rescue—hunger for more than food. Nash is only too happy to oblige… but it seems they might not be as alone as they thought.
And Nash might have some competition in claiming Ava’s body… and her heart.

★ MY REVIEW ★
Yowza! What do you get when you strand two people on a supposedly deserted island? Two people with a ton of chemistry between them and they are forced to rely upon each other, trust each other? Well, you get a whole lot of temptation, is what you get. Tempt is the third book in Cambria Hebert’s Take it Off series. As per usual with Cambria’s books, I loved it. I loved the writing, the plot that had me second guessing myself constantly, the characters, even Ava’s dreams!
Going into this book I wasn’t actually sure I wanted to read it, even though it’s a CH book. Why? Because I don’t like love triangles at all. There are some situations where I will read them, but typically I’m just not for them. This book is a complete exception for me. So I’m going to clear things up and state that Tempt does have an HEA, and it’s written mainly from Ava’s point of view.
Ava is an interesting character to me. I enjoyed her personality, and her will to just not give up. She’s definitely a fighter. Right off the bat, the book starts out with you reading her dreams. It basically sets the book up and the plot line for what you think is going to happen or go down. Her first impression of Nash made me chuckle a fair bit because she was just like, “Wait, you’re joking right? You’re my pilot? You call that a plane!?”. She’s definitely amusing.
Nash is of course, the pilot who doesn’t look like a pilot. The guy that sprinkles his English with a faint Spanish accent and peppers it with Spanish. Enough to make you fan your face. He’s sure of himself, but not in a cocky way. Protective, charming, and somehow manages to keep a cool head and not kill them both. As a hero, I liked the guy and like Ava, he kept me on my toes.
These two have chemistry from the get go, but its not overt. It’s more of a “Oh, he’s good looking.” You know, as in, you notice it but you’re not falling over about it. There is no insta-love here or insta-lust. I’d call it more of a slow build and after their plane crashes and they are thrown together, they aren’t exactly thinking of romancing each other. It’s more how do we survive. What they go through on the island brings them closer though, and they find themselves falling for each other over shared protein bars.
All is not as it seems though, because they have to go through a whole many obstacles on the island before they are rescued.
Final thoughts on Tempt? I’d say read it, it’s a relatively short, fast read, but still with a good enough plot to keep you entertained. For me, it’s a five star! I loved the twists in it.
