A bittersweet romance about feelings, second chances, and finding yourself, Vital Temptations: A Heart's Betrayal proves the perfect choice for adults who are interested in a mature romance. With a narrative that moves steadily forward, gathering momentum, substance and intensity, author K. L. Lewis isn’t one to settle for easy answers or clichéd plot conventions. Her characters are delightfully interesting, believable, flawed and above all remind us how rare it is to meet someone we feel an instinctive connection with. On this level it proves welcome relief from the dearth of dumbed-down romances that populate the genre, but it’s not without a few favoured tropes. There’s no getting away from the fact that Bethany is beautiful and successful or Brent is charismatic and devilishly handsome, but Lewis wields a deft pen that keeps it real and when the sparks finally start flying you can be assured she pitches it perfectly, keeping us on tenterhooks as to whether Bethanys head or heart will ultimately decide the choice she seems fated to make.
Fun and intelligent throughout, Vital Temptations: A Heart's Betrayal is one of those novels that quickly consumes you, getting more and more exciting with each minute passing page. A great choice for a lazy weekend, it is highly recommended.
