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 . . . 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?
If you've read the first 2 books - you'll know all about Ethan and Lila - if you haven't read the two before- you may get a little confused -
Lila comes across as a rich spoiled brat, but she's far from it - she's just trying to find the one thing she never got from the 2 people who should have given it to her unconditionally. Instead she seeked out love and craved attention - but always finding it in the wrong places. When she was 14, she grew up in a way that no 14 year old should have, and her mother did what she does best - pins the negitive on Lila and gives her some pills to get over it.
In the first two books with Ella and Micha, you see that Lila is struggling with finding out who she is - wanting to be more like Ella and less like her mother - and Ethan seems to be helping her with that.
Ethan is a sweet guy, but he refuses to get tied down like his parents - what is Love? it doesn't look like a very good thing from his position.
A few years back, Ethan meets a girl, and they fall into an easy relationship - his first relationship. But things don't end well and Ethan struggles to let go of his first love.
When Lila hits rock bottom, Ethan helps her pick up the pieces - being her friend is easy, and even with her spoiled rich bitch attitude, he still wants to help her. but he feels that it could easily become more with Lila - and he's not ready to give up his feelings for his old girlfriend just yet......
Really a cute story with these two - it has their HEA - but leaves us screaming at the end with Ella and Micha - now I"m off to hurry and start book 4 - The Forever of Ella and Micha - because that ending was not cool!!!! lol
