Review of The Temptation of Lila and Ethan by Jessica Sorenson

The Temptation of Lila and Ethan
Jessica Sorensen

Groupie Rating: 4.5 Stars

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Ella and Micha series comes a gripping story of passion, pain, and the courage to love . . .


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?

This is easily my favorite book by Jessica Sorensen and by far one of my favorite reads of 2013. This is part of The Secret Series but can easily be read as a standalone. After reading both of Ella and Micha's books I already had developed strong feelings and opinions about both Lila and Ethan. They were both great friends to Ella and Micha, but both had secrets of their own. However I wasn't  expecting what their actually secrets turned out to be.

 Both are broken and have disturbing pasts.  They had horrible parents who were exactly what they don't want to turn out to be like. They also had past relationships that have scarred them deeply. Can two broken people come together to make each other whole again? 

I was deeply involved in the main characters. I felt all the emotions they were going through. Their story was so well written and draws you in and doesn't spit you out until the end. I am so glad that I got to read Lila and Ethan's story. They are now one of my favorite fictional couples and Ethan is definitely one of my new book boyfriends. I would and will highly recommend this book and the rest of The Secret Series. 

Author Bio: The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jessica Sorensen, lives in the snowy mountains of Wyoming. When she’s not writing, she spends her time reading and hanging out with her family.
