Another winner by Ms Gilmore

If you could sum up A Tempting Friendship in three words, what would they be?

Friendship, Lovers, Guilt

Who was your favorite character and why?

Love BOTH Angel and Julia. Their relationship, and friendship transcended 10 intense years of their lives.

Have you listened to any of Charles Lawrence’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to other performances by Mr Lawrence and continue to be impressed by his narration.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Would have wanted but not able due to commitments

Any additional comments?

Wow, was I in for a huge surprise with this audiobook, 10th in the series by Ms Gilmore, Clover Park. All good!!
Totally not what I expected of Angel’s and Julia’s story. Though part of a series, it is truly a stand alone.

That said, if you have listened/read the previous books, you will get to visit with the those characters as well and find out how they are doing .

Angel is the last single/unattached brother of the Marino/Reynolds clan. He and Julia have a history that extends from their meeting in college to the present as co-workers in the school where she teaches and he is a social worker. It’s a friends to lovers story, full of twists and turns, surprises, roll player and LOTS of heat.

A truly complex plot that will keep you on your toes.
That said, while others will give you more on the storyline, I want to add that it made me think about how one incident that can occur in someone’s life 10 years before, can really affect how the lives of multiple individuals are affected. Sometimes causing hurts , misunderstandings, longing and guilt. Thought provoking for sure.

I do want to say that Mr Lawerence’s narration of the audiobook was excellent and will not hesitate to pick up an audiobook narrated by him, or a book written by this talented author.

I was gifted this audiobook. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Angelo & Julia

Any additional comments?

Angelo loved Julia from the moment he met her and loved spending time with her. His friend Brad knew how he felt about her and jumped in front of Angelo and went after her. Brad was Julia's first in everything. She was attracted to both Angelo and Brad, but felt she needed to stay with Brad because he was adopted like she was. Julia has spent many years mourning his death and feels ready to move on, but she wants Angelo to move on. Brad hid many things from Julia and Angelo. Julia has problems knowing what she wants and acting on them. She hurts herself as often as she hurts Angelo.
