Shelly’s inability to truly trust someone is written beautifully to draw readers into her pain and uncertainty. The compassionate moments that Guy provides Shelly are romantic and tantalizing.

Tempting Escape by Heather McVey is a HOT read! From the first page to the last, the author’s descriptive sexual feelings and emotions displayed an arousing forthright element to the story. This is truly an erotic romance for those who like a scorching read. I enjoyed the manner in which Ms. McVey carefully detailed her characters and their personalities. Guy and Shelly were fascinating in their interactions and kept me wondering what their next moves would be. I enjoyed watching the tension build between the two. From playful to intense, they work towards their love despite both internal and external forces. This is an enjoyable story that I recommend for those who enjoy the complicated elements of the erotic mixed with their romance.

Wow, is this hot; sex galore, and an interesting story. A young woman deciding almost too late to grab the reins as the saying goes and experience what her imagination has been fuelling in her life. As the reader I was happy to see her blossom and realize that her fiancée was the wrong man before it was too late; cheering all the way. The overwhelming, almost unshakable love that Guy endures for Shelley is so wonderful, so romantic. The emotional boundaries both Guy and Shelley must overcome in order to achieve what they each need finally crumble. And Ted is the picture of a pain in the gizzard, if you ever needed one….
