Perfect for readers of Abbi Glines, Seduction returns to the Devil’s Den, a Texas strip club where hearts can’t hide when the chemistry is right.
The night Marisela Gonzalez rides up to the Devil’s Den on her motorcycle, running from trouble and looking for her sister, she finds more than a place to hide out and work her red-hot body. She meets a guy brave enough to stand by a tough, terrified nineteen-year-old girl who’s been in the wrong place with the wrong jerk one too many times. And he’s ready to show Marisela how a real man treats the woman he desires.
An ex-cop taking over as the club’s head of security, Craig Hanson can handle anything—except the urgent need he suddenly feels to hold Marisela tight. Commitment has never been his thing, but all that changes when Craig finds something too real to deny between them. Sensual and vulnerable, Marisela’s got a scary past. And when it comes knocking, Craig goes all in to protect her—because seduction is the ultimate game changer.
We met both Marisela and Craig in Surrender. Marisela is Robyn’s leather-wearing, bike-riding younger sister, back in town with trouble on her heels. Craig is a former cop, now the head of security at The Den and a ladies man. In the previous book, he was interested in Robyn and now he sees Marisela after almost two years, he finds himself attracted to her. He is hesitant to pursue his attraction to her because of Robyn and also because she is much younger.
Seduction was more intense because of the issues in the story. Marisela is on the run from an abusive ex-boyfriend and returns to Corpus where she takes a job at The Den as a stripper, with Craig appointing himself as her protector. Soon they begin a relationship that is filled with passion, secrets and tons of drama. On the outside, Marisela appears to be a sexy leather-clad vixen, but on the inside she is a scared and scarred young woman who is afraid to admit her mistakes and seek help. Craig shows a warm, protective and possessive side to him and I really liked that he was willing to go to any lengths to keep her safe. The story was filled with angst, with the psycho ex taking center-stage.
As with Surrender, there were a few things that were off, but at the heart of Seduction is a story of two very imperfect people being drawn together by a powerful force – love.
