Coming home to a quiet, dark house.
Meals by myself, because she was already done. Excuses and apologies, they were never enough. But even with that, when I touched her—when she arched under me and pulled me deeper— we couldn’t get back to where we needed to be. Where we used to be. It was all frustration. Loneliness. Loss. Because even though she was no longer my student, the chemistry was always there. Adele and I loved each other. We thought we were unshakeable. But love isn’t always enough. It wasn’t enough when I constantly disappointed her. It wasn’t enough when loss cleaved us in two. And when she left me, love was not enough. She didn’t know yet that I’d never stop fighting for her. But she would.

**Author’s note- Let’s be real clear that this is BOOK TWO of a duet, and you’re going to want to read Tempting before you read this one. Adele and Nathan started their story in that book, and you’ll get the same sex, fighting, and cursing that you did in the first. But if you want it to make sense, read Tempting first. If any of that offends you, please avoid them both.**

I could not wait to get my greedy little hands on Provocative.  I fell in love with Nathan and Adele in Tempting and was exciting to see where their journey would continue to take them.  And I was blown away by the story that unfolded before me as I read tonight.  Yes tonight.  I could not put this book down.  I read it within less than three hours.  I devoured it.

Their story while in some circumstances unusual is also in some circumstances, so completely relatable.  I have been down the path that they are treading and know the grief they share.  And it is so devastating.  I cried for them while I read.  But it isn’t all gut wrenching pain; there is still serious spontaneous combusting heat between these two.  I was half expecting my kindle to short out from it.  And the anger…usually I find fights in books too fake.  Not here, Alex Lucian does a good job at making them seem so real.  This adds to the relatability of the characters as well.  Plus it makes everything rawer.

If you haven’t had a chance to pick up the Tempting series, I highly recommend it.  The feels will have you reeling in all the best ways.   I can’t wait to dive into more of Alex’s work.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J
