THE TEMPTATION OF LILA AND ETHAN
On the surface, Lila Summers is flawless: good looks, expensive clothes, and a big, beautiful smile. But a dark past and even darker secrets are threatening to bubble over her perfect façade. She'll do anything to keep the emptiness inside hidden-which leads her into situations that always end badly. Whenever she hits bottom, there's only one person who's there to pull her out: Ethan Gregory.
Ethan set the rules a long time ago: he and Lila are just friends. He doesn't do relationships. Although his tattooed, bad boy exterior is a far cry from Lila's pretty princess image, Ethan can't deny they have a deeper connection than he's used to. If he's not careful, he could be in serious danger of becoming attached-and he's learned the hard way that attachment only leads to heartbreak.
When Lila falls farther than she ever has before, can Ethan continue to help as a friend? Or is he also getting close to falling . . . for her?
The whole time I was reading Ella & Micah's story I was wanting to know more about Lila and Ethan, so when I found out they were gonna have their own story I was VERY excited! I loved this book!!! It made me smile, laugh and even get a little watery eyed at times. Lila's story just punches you in the chest sometimes and the sexual tension between her and Ethan....WOW!!! Who wouldn't love Ethan after reading this book lol A great addition to the secret series! Cheers to Jessica Sorensen 😊
Hair pulling, teeth grinding, hand rubbing up and down the face was a constant for me. I should have read the synopsis before reading the book. That was my fault. It gave a slight hint at what to expect... Well kinda. I always liked Lila and her character. She was the sweet on,the good girl and Ella was the disturbed one. A see learn that was so not the case. Little did we know all that sweetness was just a front. A front that was covered by an prescription pill addiction. We literally watched her spiral out of control. And then there is Ethan. He has his issues of not wanting to be in a relationship because of his ex-girlfriend who all through out the book I couldn't figure out if she was dead or not? Thanks Jessica for that one. It wasn't until later when when we learned the truth. The same with the scars on Lila's body. I more or less figured that one out in my own from putting some of the pieces together and filling in the blanks. But was mortified by the actual story. The same feeling I had for Ethan's story of guilt with London. Ethan's role in the story with Lila was just how much does he want to be a friend. We all knew there was chemistry from the start with these two but the sexual tension was off the charts. There were so many times I just wanted to wring Lila's neck and scream at her for her behavior.
When this book came in through my preorder I was so excited. I knew it would be the next book I read. I was hoping (really hoping) for a feel good book. One not so depressing. It was a good story and Jessica as always writes a fantastic story. Still gave it 5 stars but really wished the plot was different. Then again I guess real life is not all rainbows and unicorns.
Good but not a day read
This one was good but a little long in parts. If you enjoyed Micah's story you will enjoy this one as well - the only exception is the push to read to the end is not near as needed as the others. Enjoy- worth the read if your reading Micah and Ella's story!
