Welcome to Temptation
A bit old-fashioned in a sweet, rather than dated, way though the love scenes are wonderfully steamy without ever being crude. Nice and long and full, with an incredibly satisfying ending, which still managed to make me want to pick up the next book right away something I almost never do.
Sophie and Phin are a wonderful pair, Phin is a to-die-for lover with tons of class and integrity yet he has his issues. Sophie is intelligent, hard-working, and such a good person, but she makes mistakes too.
Their conflicts are totally believable. I never once shook my head or rolled my eyes. The rest of quite large cast is fully drawn and includes more than one additional romance. The mystery is a good one, including, you-guessed-it, more than one whodunit. Book heaven. I discovered Jennifer Crusie years ago and decided to listen to this audiobook, which I've had forever. I remembered vague plot points, but quickly became engrossed and obsessed with finding out the story all over again.
I actually bought the site version! Crusie has a way of describing the ludicrous and sometimes monotonous into something fascinating. I love the way she does her sex scenes. They're super realistic and raw. I didn't know what to think of Phin in the beginning. He kind of came off as a pushover and I was thrown off because I didn't remember that he had a kid. I mean, who would want a guy who doesn't get emotional over anything??
But, of course, Phin ends up drool worthy and I laughed myself silly when she hustled him at pool. Very much looking forward to delving into her work again!
Mass Market Paperback Verified download. I am constantly amazed by Jennifer Crusie's writing talent. Although I have long known that she produces some of the greatest dialogue around - such as in "Bet Me," I wasn't yet aware of her range in characterization and plots. Sophie Dempsey is the eldest daughter in a family of "gypsies. Sophie is the one member of the Dempsey family that does not have a police record.
As the eldest, she has spent a lifetime of sacrificing her needs to look after her siblings - Amy and Dave. They are a close family who believe that "family comes first. She has met the sexy new mayor, Phineas Tucker, but for the first time is torn between loyalties. When she meets his beguiling daughter, Dillie, Sophie doesn't stand a chance. Like all small towns, Temptation is not one to easily embrace new comers.
It is a town where gossip travels like the wind and tradition is to be carried on at all costs. However, Temptation has never met a woman like Sophie, a dichotomy of innocence and predator.
I loved Sophie's "Five-Step Program: Make the Mark smile. Get the Mark to agree with you. Make the Mark feel superior. Give the Mark something.
Get what you want and get out. The characterizations in this book were magnificent. I loved the ending to this book with Sophie's thoughts on the political posters. It was just hilarious and hopeful and you truly got the sense that this could work I made the mistake of reading "Faking It" first. That one took so long to get into, that I was not sure I wanted to invest any time in "Welcome to Temptation," which intorduces readers to the Dempsey family. I am sure glad I decided to throw caution to the wind.
I just loved this book! It is the story of two sisters who come to town to make a documentary, and end up unwittingly making a porno film and falling for upstanding pillars of the community.
The characters of Sophie and Phin are so well drawn out and sexy, that they jump from the page. There's also a lot of attention to detail for the secondary characters - they are all so well fleshed out. The initial "romantic" encounter between Sophie and Phin is the stuff that romance dramas thrive on, and I had misgivings at first I thought I was reading a Harlequin romance novel , but then Crusie hooked me in with her inventive prose and more inventive imagination.
And she has a great knack for Dusty Springfield and goofy movie quotes I found myself trying to guess the movie too! Crusie brings a mixture of romance, emotion, mystery and plotting to tell an engaging story of how two lost people manage to find each other in a storm of controversy. And let's face it, porn, pool, phallic symbols, and politics make for good storytelling.
I don't understand why Hollywood has not discovered her stories instead of churning out remake after remake of really bad television shows. Paperback Verified download. I discovered Jennifer Crusie books about 6 or 7 months ago I have now downloadd from site read about 6 of her books I have written "no spoilers" here Just my 2 cents worth of my opinion about this book.
There are at least three chapters where I laughed so hard, I had tears in my eyes. One in particular was so funny I had to stop reading Other chapters, I had a lot of laughs and smiles. Jennifer Crusie also writes "great hot sex" chapters I have read dozens of "funny romance" novels by other authors.
But, Jennifer Crusie is my favorite. Besides the great humor, and steamy sex I love how she makes each character so unique from each other. If you've never read one of Jennifer Crusie books One person found this helpful. See all reviews.

This item: But Phin never does. So you know he's going to get the BJ sometime in the future and Sophie's going to lose her mind about it.
It's kind of a whole cast of crappy characters. The only nice person in the whole novel seems to be the cop. More than half the people are semi-cheating on everyone else, in public, just to get back at their significant other.
Sophie's sister is leaving her high and dry to go to L.

But Amy doesn't care where that leaves Sophie. Parents are busy manipulating their children into unwanted relationships like their kids are their own personal chess pawns. There aren't a lot of characters to like here. Meanwhile, back in Temptation, Sophie takes Phin home to have sex and ends up having to break up with her boyfriend's answering machine because he won't pick up the phone to let her dump him properly. Once that pesky task is done Phin's all for the 'cheap sex' as he calls it.
But he should have called it 'boring sex', because it was. No really.
That's not just me talking. They have to stop going at it because in the middle Sophie was so bored she was counting the cracks in the ceiling tiles and even Phin, who'd hump a granny's leg, thought that was just a little too awkward. Speaking of awkward, they wait til Sophie's sister Amy comes back from the bar and Phin pins down Sophie and starts doing her while simultaneously throwing around lamps in order to get Amy to walk in on them having sex.
And here's where it totally collapsed for me. But then again he lives with his mommy, so maybe he's acting out. Here's the thing. I like kinky sex as much as the next girl.
More than the next girl. You'll just have to trust me on this. But it's jarring when it's a grown father who's acting a fool in his very, very small town.
What's going to happen when his 9 year old daughter is told by other kids at school "I saw your daddy having sex with some skank"? You can't keep your exhibitionist tendencies under wraps for the sake of your kid? A lot of the dialogue is movie quotes, which seem cute at first, but then you realize this is a substitute for REAL dialogue and it becomes annoying.
There are far too many movie references in general especially since I have seen some of them and the point the author is trying to make by drawing parallels to these movies is lost on me. I don't want to have to watch a dozen movies to understand the book I'm reading. This happened in "Agnes", too, the male lead sometimes referencing classic movies, but it wasn't quite as pervasive in that book.
Also, the plot itself is pretty damn stupid because, look, I'm all for women being empowered at any age and "I am woman, hear me roar" and all that, but the reality is NO ONE wants to see a fifty year old porn star.
NO ONE. And the plot is mostly about a fifty year old ex porn star trying to make soft core porn for a comeback and her old hardcore porn producer is trying to get her to scrap the soft porn and come to the dark side for one last romp. Again, NO producer is going to make a deal with a fifty year old to do porn.Embarrassing to say, I've read it three times, each time straight through. Well sort of Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.
I had to keep reminding myself to concentrate to stay interested. Oral sex isn't sex anyway.
