  2. The Amish fascinate me Really, they do Their rules, their beliefs, their antifeminist ways a lot of if it actually seems kind of ridiculous, but regardless if you consider them as a cult, or counterculture religion, I can t see anyone not being intrigued by their ways This is a novel about love Forbidden love A love so authentic that I found myself at the mercy of a burning restlessness at thoughts of their relationship s imminent unraveling and collapse.The relationship that Rose and Noah have [...]

  3. I have always been curious when it comes to Amish romances I think a part of it is that their lives seems so much followed by strict rules and in my mind what an exciting story to have a couple fall in love when it is totally forbidden Yes, I am a bit of a rebel Anything that is forbidden tends to excite me Temptation is a Young Adult book, and I could very much tell It wasn t as in depth as I prefer my romances to be but it was able to keep my attention through the story I would have liked to l [...]

  5. That was the problem with English girls they did what they wanted.But then again, maybe that was one of the things that made Rose so intriguingd dangerous to me.3.5 stars I was interested in this story because I d read a few of my mom s Amish romances in the past, and I ve also watched several television documentaries and shows on the Amish There s something about the way these hardworking, family communities live that fascinates me I couldn t imagine living in their world, where just about anyt [...]

  6. My review of Temptation on my blogI had Temptation only for 2 hours before I started reading it The description, cover, and the premise were just screaming at me, READ ME This is the type of book you want to read right now My brain was telling me to just read this one and not wait, so I did.I fell in love with the first 2 3rds of Temptation I was so wrapped up in Rose and Noah s story I just wanted to read, read, read even though I was going on vacation the next day and had important items to t [...]

  7. If you think Edward is controlling and Bella is weak they look like completely self actualized, feminist, independent, individuals compared to Noah and Rose Noah and Rose instantly fall in love, for no apparent reason other than that they are both hot Their relationship consists of a few stolen kisses, and a couple of horse rides but he demands she becomes Amish so he can officially court and marry her ASAP or they are over Based on the apparent 3 or 4 hours they have spent alone over a few mont [...]

  8. Imagine if Mr Right couldn t be any right, but wrong in every sense of the word because of the world he lived in When Rose and her family move to the quiet town of Meadowview, they are all still grieving from the death of her mother The move was suppose to bring closure and give the kids a fresh start, nobody could have guessed the changes that would tear them apart.Since the death, no one has made Rose feel alive than Noah, the Amish boy who lives down the road For Rose, Noah is perfect and be [...]

  9. I can t take any of this barf worthy mess First of all, the main girl is an annoying wench who is dumber than anything and so ignorant Seriously You are interacting with an AMISH family Of course their actions and beliefs are going to be a lot different than yours Try to be a little open minded will you Maybe she tries to understand them better and grows as a character but I m not willing to tough it out.This romance Ridiculous They haven t actually gotten together yet but at first glance they [...]

  10. Okay I finally get me, I am a huge sucker for the intense male who is so into the girl he would do about anything for her, or to keep her Didn t say it was healthy just I really like stories that are like that Temptation is that kind of story and Rose and her family move next door to the Miller family who happen to be Amish They have a beautiful son named Noah Rose and Noah are instantly attracted to each other upon their first meeting Both try to avoid there attraction to one another but it do [...]

  11. I just re read this and this time around, there were a few things that bothered me just a little Yes, it is full of chemistry and attraction, but it seems like all the kissing is a little of the French variety Noah also came across as quite possessive and not willing to give an inch.However, I still really enjoyed it Is it just me or is there an obsession with all things Amish lately I can t decide if it s the thoughts of a simpler life or like looking into a secret ish society, but I find it qu [...]

  12. You can find this any many other review on my blog Ja itam, a ti I guess that I can t stand those crying teen girls any Don t get me wrong, I do understand that some people are emotional than others but for Christ s sake everything has its limits But well let s talk about the story.So as you probably know from the blurb here we have typical teen love story in not so typical environment This whole story is such a cliche except that part about Amish society I find them interesing as majority of p [...]

Read reviews at What Danielle Did Next Wow This is the reason I love Young Adult so much The Butterflies How much do I love the Butterflies That feeling of unbridled joy, untainted by adult sensibilities that captures the brilliance and purity of youth and young love This book enveloped me in that feeling and I was than happy to curl up in it I couldn t put it down all evening and it was only when fatigue finally overcame me that I gave in and put the Kindle down I find the whole subject of th [...]

  15. Note I didn t know whether to give this book one star or five stars so I decided to go with the average and settled on three I don t know how to feel about this book I don t know whether to say it s really great because it elicited really strong reactions from me and made me want to continue reading, or say it s terrible because most of my reactions were negative Temptation deals with Rose, an English girl and Noah, an Amish boy They fall in love, and well, the road to true love is never smooth [...]

  16.

  17. Here s the thing I am not a fan of romance novels Romance as a secondary focus to the main plot is fine by me, but romance as the main story of a novel bores me to tears The only reason I picked up Temptation was because Harlequin Teen sent me an ARC of its sequel and I felt as if I had to know the story before I delved into Belonging I regret that decision The ONLY reason this book got two stars was because of the author s obvious talent for writing Her talent for storytelling on the other hand [...]

  23. THIS REVIEW ON B S BOOK BLOG I received a digital copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher for review First of all, gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous book cover I fell in love immediately with this book just by looking at it But of course, looks can be deceiving, and that what looks pretty on the outside just might be rotten on the inside Like this book, for instance.Temptation is a story about Rose and Noah, two love birds who can t be together After her mother died, Rose and her family mo [...]

  24. Review Posted on Reading Lark 5 26 12 readinglark 2012 I have always been a big fan of forbidden romance since that first moment I read Romeo and Juliet as a kid There is just something compelling about watching a couple struggle to be together in spite of impossible odds Not all of these starcrossed lovers end up with happy endings, but I do enjoy rooting for that Never have I read a forbidden romance like this one though typical American teenage girl meets typical Amish teenage guy It s love a [...]

  27. Definitely not something I ve seen before Temptation was a different YA romance and I really liked that about it I really enjoyed reading this book.What first drew me into this book was that it was based in an Amish society with and Amish hero I ve always been curious about how their lifestyle works, particularly because the media paints a rather nasty picture that I ve never been inclined to believe So, that was a huge draw for this book And I really liked how the author portrayed it She explai [...]
