My Review:
I enjoyed the underlying premise of Tempting Acquisitions.  I loved the three sisters, and what they do with the company they take over from their father. I love their spunk and their drive. I like Nathan Cooper.  I don't necessarily like what he does for a living, but that comes from not understanding what he does.  I do like him as a character though and I liked Kiera as well.

The book fell a little flat for me at first.  I just couldn't get that involved in the characters.  I didn't see much development at least at first.  It seemed the first third of the book was a bit disjointed at least in my opinion, which is just my opinion for what it's worth.  But then it seemed to come into it's own, the characters started to finally develop before my eyes.  I understood them more, I liked each of them more (though I always liked Kiera). And I started liking the book more.  So if you can stick out the first 1/3 or so of the book, I think this book is well worth the read and it's setting up the rest of the series as well.

After the characters started coming to life and I started to understand them, then I could understand the romance and all of the motivations in their life and then as things unfolded more and more things made even more sense.  By the end of the book I was in love with Kiera and Nathan and I think there was even a tear in my eye at the ending.

So while the beginning may feel just a little stiff to you I would dare you to keep reading, because I think it's worth the read.  As the book and the relationship heat up the storyline smooths out and the characters really start to make sense.  And then the real story is good, it then becomes a great romance that makes me look forward to the other two sisters' stories, especially since we have a peek who might be the love interest of one of the sisters.

My Rating: 4.0/5.0

About the Author (from 
Addison Fox can’t remember a time when words weren’t a part of her life. An avid reader, her love of the written word started at the tender age of 1 with The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear (a poem she could recite by heart to any family member who would listen). Dr. Seuss, C.S. Lewis, Judy Blume and a host of others quickly followed until she discovered THE CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR by Jean M. Auel while writing a paper at the library in the 7th grade. Although not a classic romance, Ayla and Jondalar’s love story moved her firmly to the romance section of the bookstore and she hasn’t looked back!

Her debut novel, WARRIOR ASCENDED will be published by NAL in March 2010. WARRIOR ASCENDED launches her series, The Sons of the Zodiac, about an immortal band of Warriors, granted the powers of their astrological signs and charged with protecting humanity. The series blends sizzling paranormal romance with the myths of the ancients.

Addison lives in New York. She loves to get email from fans.
