I received Tempting Trouble by Savannah Stuart from NetGalley as an ARC for my honest review.

Tempting Trouble is a two short stories. Story One is Tempting Witness. Tempting Witness is the story of long time friends, Rafe and Madison. Rafe is Madison's brother Andre's Best Friend. He has always been there for Madison and her family. Over the recent years Rafe has found himself having feeling for Madison that are not brotherly. Rafe's question is how does Madison feel about him?

When Madison finds herself in danger she runs to Rafe for help. He is a detective and has always made her feel safe. Will she be able to hide her growing feelings for him? Will he protect her body as well as her heart?

I really liked this short story. It was short and to the point but it was HOTTTT!!! The Sex scenes were scorching! Just what I needed when I was in between novels. There was a sweet epilogue so we know where the couple ended up.

Better Late than Never was the second short story. Short being the key word. This story was about Randy and Lindsay. Lindsay is a receptionist for Randy's father. There is not much backstory or follow up for this one. You basically get one night of passion and that is it.

I received this book as an ARC for my honest review.
