Summary

I romanced her for revenge...but what if she's not the enemy after all?

I'm Clint Holmes. I was an ambitious guy with a busy life and a growing business. Sure, North Dakota wasn't a tropical paradise, but I was happy enough - until tragedy struck. Now the only thing that matters is finding the person responsible and making her pay. But Bethany Banks is a Harvard-educated shark used to swallowing her enemies whole while playing dangerous corporate games. How can a blue-collar oil man like me possibly beat her?

The moment I lay eyes on my beautiful nemesis, the answer is obvious. I seduce her.

On Maui, where she's fled, I get to know the man-eater who caused my family so much pain...only to find she's not the brazen ballbuster I assumed. She's skittish, secretive, vulnerable. For some reason, my instinct is to protect her. I can't abandon my plan, but I can't stop wanting her. Night after night, I pry her open with my touch until I'm drowning in our passion. Soon, I'm questioning everything, especially the fine line between love and hate. But when the past comes back to wreak vengeance and the truth explodes, can I prove that I'm more than tempted to love her forever?

Contains mature themes.

Exhausting Hero and Heroine

Bethany was the worst character out of all the women in the series. And that's saying a lot since I couldn't finish More Than Love You. Harlow was so overbearing and annoying that I couldn't listen anymore. Clint needed to grow a pair. His constant need to have Bethany grew old. The woman was as exciting as making toast. Christian Fox was amazing and probably the only reason I finished the audiobook. I hope this was the last book in the series. Shayla wrapped up the siblings except for Evan. The reader is left wondering what his child was.

Did she or didn't she?

Another great read that I really enjoyed listening to! Clint is set on getting revenge for the death of his father and the lost money that his father had invested. He target is Beth, who was an investors at the company. Beth flees to Hawaii to regroup and spend some time with her half siblings. Clint is hot on her tail after hearing she was hiding there until everything blows over.
The author did a beautiful job of depicting the grief, I felt the characters were believable and I enjoyed listening to them fall in love. The only complaint is that I wish there was a female voice for the main character, all of the women sounded the same.
Overall a great read. really enjoyed and would still recommend!

Christian Fox never fails to deliver!!

Although the premise was predictable, I enjoyed the story between Clint and Bethany. You got glimpses of Bethany earlier in this series, but I was glad that she was able to evolve from who her siblings thought she was, without losing so much of what made her the woman is is today. She had many influences growing up, not just the horrible one her father forced on her.

Admittedly, I liked this story, but not as much as the previous ones in this series. For me it seemed to drag on a bit longer than it should have. Christian Fox does a wonderful job, as usual telling Clint and Bethany's story. It's always good to catch up with couples from previous books in this series.

More Angsty

This book had more angst than the rest of the book in this series. Although it's part of a series, you ain't have to read the rest of the books to enjoy this one.

Clint and Bethany’s story was a tough one from the start. After his dad loses all his money to Bethany’s dad’s Financial Investment firm Clint is out for revenge. After hearing from his buddy that Bethany is in Maui, he travels to Hawaii to get his pound of flesh. Expecting to find a cold-hearted bitch, he finds something completely different. Instead of finding revenge he finds his heart.
This was a book that had me holding my breath and then jumping for joy. Beautifully performed by Christian Fox.

Another great listen in this series

MORE THAN TEMPT YOU is the fifth book in the More Than Words series. This book can be read as a standalone although I recommend you read all the books in the series in order for some great story. Clint and Bethany story is a good story that makes since because when u lose a parent, especially unexpected you never know how someone will react. I absolutely love series so you can keep tabs on the other characters in the series. I can’t get enough of Harlow and Noah and you get some of them. Shayla Black never disappoints, and she didn’t here either.

My favorite in the series!!!

I have been enjoying this series and I keep thinking THIS is my favorite but then the next book in the series comes out and I think well THIS IS MY FAVORITE and that is what I am saying again because this book was AMAZING!

There is something about an enemy-to-lover romance that really calls to me but this was more than that because Bethany didn't know Clint, she knew his father, so the enemy part was one sided and that made it more intriguing.

There has been a common thread between all of the books, all of the Reed siblings dislike their father, Barclay Reed, but none more so than Bethany and believe me when I tell you she has every reason to not only dislike her father but to downright hate him.

Clint had my heart from the very beginning, anyone in his shoes would want revenge, it's a normal reaction and emotion but few people would actually go ahead and peruse it.

Clint and Beth had an instant chemistry one they both fought, although for different reasons, but it was stronger than either of them and they finally gave in to it and boy oh boy talk about overheating your kindle!

I listened to the AUDIOBOOK of this story and LOVED it. Narrator, Christian Fox, did a wonderful job bringing this story to life. You never had to guess who was talking during the dual POV because he had a different voice infliction for each so you knew exactly who's POV it was.

Each of the books in this series can be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading them in order that way you get the full impact of the running thread that connects each of the books and it will not spoil anything for you. Happy Reading!!!
