Title: Tempting Sophia
Author: Jessica Prince
Release Date: November 2, 2017
Having my heart broken once was enough to make me give up on the idea of love all together. Instead of searching for The One I decided to embrace variety and turn my back on monogamy. I made a living convincing women they didn’t need a man to feel complete.
And I totally rocked at it.
Until the man who shattered my happily ever after came waltzing back into my life, determined to make me fall for him all over again.
He claims that I’m the love of his life. He wants a second chance, and it seems like he’ll stop at nothing to tempt the hell out of me. But if Dominic Abbatelli thinks he can win me back with his puppy dog eyes, heartfelt apologies, and declarations of love then he’s…probably right.
Jessica Prince returns with more from the ladies of Girl Talk in her hilarious and sweet new novel, Tempting Sophia. After getting glimpses of Sophia and Dominic in Seducing Lola, I was utterly intrigued. Jessica Prince hinted at some serious history and undeniable chemistry between these two and I was anxious to get my hands on the rest of their story. Tempting Sophia definitely delivered. Sophia and Dominic’s journey was funny, heartfelt, and absolutely sizzling. I fell hard and fast for their colorful banter, adorable sweetness, and all the ways in which they made me swoon. There was something magnetic about this couple and I adored experiencing the push and pull between them as they tried to find their way back to each other.
“I told you I’d make you crave me until you forgot how to live without me, and I meant it. Because in ten years, I’ve never learned how to live without you.”
Sophia was feisty, strong, and wonderfully outspoken. However, there was also a vulnerability and measure of insecurity about her that just felt so entirely genuine. I enjoyed getting to know this character, watching her grow and evolve over the course of the story. Sophia was easily relatable in a way that had me wholly invested in her happily after ever. Dominic was just as captivating. I enjoyed his confident and charming personality, but even more so, I loved the way he came undone around Sophia. Unafraid to fight hard and love harder, Dominic and Sophia brought out the best in one another. This couple had me falling hard and fast for their unique and beautiful love story.
“And I’ll wait for as long as it takes for you to forgive me and let me back in, because not only do I not know how to live without you in my life, I don’t even want to try.”
Tempting Sophia was the perfect blend of sweet romance, heart-wrenching emotion, and scorching hot encounters. Throw in plenty of humor and some hilarious secondary characters and Jessica Prince has you ready to devour this story. There were so many of my favorite elements in this storyline. It was a heartfelt-second-chance-best-friend’s-sibling-romantic-comedy and it just felt good all the way through. I laughed. I cried. And I swooned. Jessica Prince’s writing truly sparkles and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for Daphne and Caleb next. Witty, heartfelt, and completely enchanting, Tempting Sophia is a must read from this incredibly talented author!

Don’t miss the companion novel:
Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.
Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.
In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.
Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.
