Summary

Widowed at thirty-three with two small kids, Beverly Simpson wants someone to blame. Angry, hurt, and full of regret for what she's lost, she rails against a once trusted God and hides her loneliness behind a sassy exterior.

Joe Clark, intrigued by Bev’s irreverent approach to life, stubbornly pursues her. However, the pair have two very different outlooks on life. Joe is a dedicated preacher, while Bev insists she no longer believes in God. Despite being polar opposites, they can’t hide their attraction to each other, but reconciling their beliefs may be harder than they imagined. Will faith and love be enough to mend a damaged heart?

Originally published in 1987, Tempted is an inspiring story of betrayal and trust that will refresh listeners.

Glad I listen to this Robyn Carr book Last

I've now listened to every Robyn Carr book available on audio and give all the previous ones 5 stars. This one however is painful to listen to because of the narration. The story is good but honestly the narrator was horrible. If I would have listened to this one first i fear I would have been so turned off I wouldn't of listened to here others. Therese Plummer should do an update on this one!

Mt least favorite Robyn Carr book ever

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, I found the book to be tedious. Too many words to express simple thoughts, unlikable character (Bev), sappy character (joe). I found it difficult to listen to him basically begging her to love him throughout the story.

Do you think Tempted needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Oh no!

Any additional comments?

By the way I love Robyn Carr books...this is the first of all that I have read that I didn't like.

An insipid Sunday church sermon

A waste of time. It felt like a clerical uninspired tv show. Like no other book of Robyn Carr I've been listening to. The narrator has no talent in reading different voices. It's easy just to listen to Therese Plummer, for example. I did struggle to finish it.

Not great

Had some funny moments but many awful moments. Spoiler...

He thinks about hitting her to shut her up. It is supposed to be funny but no. Hitting your partner to shut them up is never funny. He does tell her to shut up. He doesn't show her any respect. She is not a likable character. She needs to grow up, stop wallowing. The fact that she allows her boys to go off alone with him before she really knows him is scary. I have enjoyed all of Robyn Carrs books. Not this one.

Awful narration

The narrator makes this story be bad( even though is not that bad, no the best either).
