CHRISTMAS SEDUCTION is the fourth book in Jessica Lemmon’s “Bachelor Pact” series. Although this is the fourth book in the series, I was able to follow along and enjoy this story without having read the previous ones. However, after reading CHRISTMAS SEDUCTION, I am eager to go back and read those earlier books. To many in Spright Wellness Community, Tate Duncan is not only the founder of the community, but a wealthy and attractive powerhouse whose life is as close to perfect as possible. What not many people know is that Tate’s world has been in chaos since learning about the circumstances of his adoption, and since discovering a twin brother he never knew about. It’s when he’s at this crossroads that he and local yoga instructor Hayden Green find each other.
This story is told from alternating perspectives, so you get a window into Tate’s inner turmoil as he tries to sort out his life. The passion between Hayden and Tate flares up suddenly but the relationship seems to develop very organically. Initially I thought Hayden’s emotional baggage from her dysfunctional family would act as an obstacle in their relationship, but it’s Tate’s issues that come between them. Jessica Lemmon always keeps things sexy and it balances the emotional drama. A lot of things are thrown at Tate in CHRISTMAS SEDUCTION, but he tries to not let everything rattle him, and to treat Hayden well. Unfortunately, Tate almost screws up epically. I like how Hayden is tough and sticks up for herself and her way of life. These two characters might have an unexpected romance, but they end up complementing each other very well.
CHRISTMAS SEDUCTION is full of Christmas fun, sexy shenanigans, and drama that pulls at your heartstrings. I love Hayden’s friends and would love to read stories about them in the future. Jessica Lemmon has a knack for weaving strong friendships into her stories. I look forward to reading Jessica Lemmon’s next book.
