Ms Day I love love love all your books and cannot wait for the next one to be released...... but do you realise I can't get my work done properly, my family's living on take-outs and I've now become an insomniac. If you like sexy Georgian romance listens then my tale shows you just how addictive this series is as once you start listening you just won't want to stop.
This is another captivating story but this time it's about an evil villain, mistaken identity, three romances - one's heartbreaking, one's fiery and one's about forgiveness. They all have passion, tension, deception, danger, seduction, betrayal and lots and lots of sex by brilliant characters that you sympathise and empathise with. Not really a stand alone listen as most of the characters have parts in previous books.
Worth a credit? Yes, but as I've said before, they are all very reasonably priced so splash your cash sit back and enjoy. But a word of warning - get all your work done first and pre-prepare your meals!!

This book is fine if you don't mind the following:
1. A complicated storyline
2. A further complication of French names that are slightly similar (twins called Lynette and Lysette who get confused for each other and you as a listener get confused even though you never see them! also two important male characters De Garnier and De Jardin... these sound slightly similar to me)
3. A narrator who puts an inflection on every single sentence she says. Argh
4. Several romances going on at the same time, none of them fully developed in a convincing way.
I love Sylvia Day, but sometimes she does not develop the romance in a satisfying manner, and this was one of those cases where there was too much else going on in the story, and too many different romances... I would have loved to see what happened to both twin sisters in more detail, rather than hear all about the other elements of the plot in such detail.
I read all sorts of novels, not just romances, and it is my belief that very few romance authors do a good job of the "side story". Sylvia Day, Nora Roberts and Lisa Kleypas all SOMETIMES succeed - but this book was not an example of that.

This is without doubt one of my favourite Sylvia day novels. The whole Georgian collection has been brilliant, but this one is the best. I admit I was confused for the first hour not knowing how the first chapter was anything to do with Simon and the rest of the book. Just keep reading and all will be explained by the end. With great plot twists and the usual hot romance scenes, this book had me enthralled to the very end x
What would have made Don't Tempt Me better?
I didnt like the time it was set in and to obvious story that had some complicated twists put in that did enhance the story
Has Don't Tempt Me put you off other books in this genre?
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Justine Eyre?
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
I loved the cross fire stuff but this was disappointing
