Title: Temptations of Desire (Desires Entwined #3)
Author Name: Tempeste O’Riley
Publication Date & Length: September 22, 2014 – 200pgs
Alexander James Noble is a gender fluid gay man who gave up on finding Mister Right a long time ago. He’s not asking for much, though. He just wants a guy who loves all of him and appreciates his feminine form too.
At the local LGBTQ center where Alex regularly volunteers, he meets Dal Sayer, an officer of the Milwaukee PD. Because he’s been rejected one too many times, Alex doesn’t trust the huge cop and the interest he shows in him, but once Dal sets his mind on something, he goes all out. Pushing aside his preconceived notions, Alex opens up just a little and soon caves.
From their first date—while dealing with his father’s failing health and his parents’ demands for him to settle down and have children—Dal never takes his eyes off his goal of making Alex his. But proving to Alex he isn’t like all the men who couldn’t see him for who he truly was and only wanted to hide him away is harder than he thought.
Alex and Dal were both in book 2 and this book I believe is just a follow through on their story.
Alex is genderfluid. And Dal is bi sexual. I think this makes it so much easier for the two men to be able to meet both of their needs.
There is a physical attraction they both feel for each other from the very moment they meet. And just like any mother couple they have things that they have to overcome in order to be together. One being the fact that Dals father is very insistent on Dal finding a nice girls and settling down and having a family.
That is not going to happen though and Dal is not going to let his fathers wants to persuade him. Alex is it for Dal and Dal is it for Alex.
Alex and Dals passion for one another is off the charts and I truly loved being along for the ride during their journey.
As always I look forward to reading more by Tempeste in the future.
