“Into Temptation” by Skyla Madi
Summary: I’m not a good Catholic girl.
A good Catholic girl would never use church on Sunday’s to lust over the Priest’s son.
A good Catholic girl would never pulse between her thighs and lose her breath over the boy who recites the closing prayer – even if his voice is low and sinful enough to make her toes curl in her shoes.
A good Catholic girl would never allow herself to be lead into temptation by dirty, blond hair and dark eyes…
And a good Catholic girl would never use bible study as an excuse to be used and abused.
But, like I said, I’m not a good Catholic girl…
And he’s FAR from a good Catholic boy.
Caleb Andrews is everything I don’t need, but he’s everything I want…
God help me.
Into Temptation gives us the story of Caleb and Cassia, both struggling with the people their parents expect them to be and the people they truly are, and want to be. They both see parts of themselves reflected in the other and are able to connect on a deeper “spiritual” level. This is the beauty of the story. Neither wants to give in, and try as they might, they cannot resist the pull of their attraction.
“Bitches love eggplant emojis.” ~ Caleb
For all the intensity this story held, it blended well with a mixture of comedic relief and heartwarming moments between the characters. One of my favorite scenes is where Caleb gets some poignant advice from Agnus, an older parishioner of his father’s church.
“These days, they say love knows no bounds, but then criticize those who dive in too early.”
The place that Cassia is in in her life during the story, God I ached for her character, she was under the thumb of her over-bearing parents (I feel like over-bearing isn’t a strong enough description because they were truly awful and blind to everything.) Thank God for the humor in this book, it keeps you from wanting to reach through your e-reader and throat punch her parents.
“Meanwhile, it’s assumed I’ll be whoring it out in a dirty back alley somewhere, spreading nothing but herpes.”~ Cassia
Into Temptation was a completely fantastic read!!! Skyla Madi, pulls you into her stories with descriptive details, incredible character development, fluid scene transitions, and witty dialogue. She is one of the best writers I have come across in the Contemporary Romance genre. A MUST READ! Five Sinfully Delicious Stars.
