Tempts Me: Every Part of You #1 by Megan Hart

The first installment of this serialized romance provided a nice introduction to the characters, and brings a sense of the story direction.  The story will be comprised of 5 releases, every 2 weeks until it completes in mid-March.  While I am not always a fan of cliffhangers, I really do like the serials: they are bite sized pieces that I can fit in when I have time, and then either read as a whole, or follow along as each is released.

We meet Simone, a woman with a bit of an edge and not a whole lot of shame.  She has been playing the voyeur and watching Elliot with his dates.  Intrigued but not wholly impressed, until one of his dates reacts negatively to a spanking.  This sparks a yearning in Simone that is far different from the quick hit of adrenaline she is getting from watching his dating activities.

Elliot is a bit too buttoned up: a germaphobe, even though he has little to no interest in a relationship, he’s cut quite a swath through the women of his acquaintance, finding many all too willing to consummate their relationship early on.  And while he is more curious about breaking the bonds of his more vanilla sex life with a lean into the world of BDSM, he’s not yet met the woman who will comply.

Simone is so unlike his usual type, far more forward and controlled, yet wholly aware of her sexuality and desires: her plotting to have him escort her home and the seduction that ensues is quick and hot, although it leaves Elliot confused and unsteady.  He isn’t used to women who not only deal with his more aggressive acts, but enjoy and seem to spur him on.  In short, he’s having a lapse of man-ego, and not sure how to deal with it all.

Perfectly setting the scene for more, while leaving far more unanswered questions for the reader, this is a story that is intriguing and worth investing time in.  And yes, Ms. Hart, I do want to know more.

She likes to watch. He likes to keep hidden. Total opposites on a collision course to a relationship neither can deny.

Simone Kahan's been watching Elliott Anderson through her office window for months. He likes to bring women back to his office for late-night trysts, and Simone enjoys her voyeurism until one night, Elliott appears to go too far with his date. The other woman might not be into spanking, but Simone is, and when she meets Elliott in the elevator later that night, she makes sure he’s intrigued enough by her to ask her to go with him to the party he no longer has a date for.

Thrown together by circumstances he’d never have imagined, Elliott isn’t sure what to think about Simone. She’s nothing like the women he normally dates, but something about her draws him in until he can’t stop himself from wanting her…She likes to watch. He likes to keep hidden. Total opposites on a collision course to a relationship neither can deny.

Harsher.  Simone responds to his rough hands as no woman ever has, and Elliott’s not ready to pursue what he’s always told himself is wrong.
