BOOK REVIEW...[ARC] Dare to Be Tempted by Eden Davis

After reading her journal of erotic fantasies, a husband gives his loving wife the ultimate gift—a forty-eight-hour pass to fulfill the desire of her choosing.>/b>

Aleesa Avis is happily married and deeply in love with her husband, a Special Forces officer serving in Afghanistan. But when Wade returns home from the war, he is psychologically injured, impotent, and struggling with the idea that he can’t satisfy the woman he loves. Aleesa still loves her husband, but she’s struggling with the loss of their once-great sex life.

While Wade was at war, Aleesa kept a journal of her secret fantasies, all featuring her husband, that she planned to give him as a gift when he returned. But since his return, their sex life has been nonexistent and Aleesa puts the journal away, hoping their marriage will go back to normal at some point.

When Aleesa heads off on a spa weekend, Wade finds the hidden diary and spends two days reading it, lost in his wife’s fantasies. His emotions run the gamut from hurt and anger to gratitude and love. To show her his love, Wade decides to give Aleesa the ultimate gift: a weekend pass for her forty-fifth birthday. She has forty-eight hours to fulfill any sexual fantasy of her choosing, outside of their marriage, no questions asked. Will Aleesa accept the gift? What would a weekend pass do to their troubled marriage?

Featuring stories for the grown and sexy, the Eden Davis series novels feature dynamic women in their forties and fifties, each dealing with life, love, and sex, working to become the confident, empowered women they were born to be.
Expected publication: June 25th 2013 by Strebor Books 
"Dare to be Tempted" was a touching novel.

The synopsis wasn't anything I haven't heard of before, but I'd be lying if I said that it didn't keep me interested.

Theoretically speaking, I could feel for both characters and their predicaments. Sexually depraved Aleesa loves her husband Wade with all her heart and can't wait for him to return home from Afghanistan. When he does come home he's a changed man and they're sex life is nonexistent and she's devastated. To give her some leverage, he makes a deal with her that allows her a 48 hour period to fulfill her greatest desires.ONLY, WILL THIS BE ENOUGH OR WILL THIS BACKFIRE AND BREAK THEM APART?

My thoughts:
So like I mentioned before, I felt for Aleesa and Wade's characters. Aleesa is just your typical wifey who can't wait for her hubby to come home but because of the war he's mentally obscured and has a hard time readjusting to normal life.

I've never been in a relationship with a guy in the military but I know a couple of girls who have and it's not an easy life. Some have had their guy's return with mental disorders like PTSD and such and so I could really sympathize with how broken and hurt Wade felt after he returned home and the predicament he finds himself when he comes home to his wife.

"Dare to be Tempted" is a heartwarming and heart-wrenching read that truly shows the testament of trust and true love. Pick it up when it comes out. :)

My Rating:

-Overall : 8.5
-Plot : 8
-Writing : 8
-Characters : 9
-Cover : 6
