Tempted by Trouble, is from the RIVA line, which has been refurbished into the Kiss line Shoot me if I m wrong.We meet Elle Amery, whose real name is Lovage, and her sisters Sorrel and Angelica, and yes her mother was Lavender There is a herbal theme happening here that makes me think of Scarborough Fair.Which is kind of appropriate when we find out the history of the sisters and the link to the annual Fair that Elle reveals in the story.Elle is the responsible one of the family, holding things together after the death of her mother when the other girls were still young She s been the one to make the sacrifices, the only other family being a wandering grandmother.So when a super hot guy turns up at her door she just knows it s going to be trouble with a capital T Especially when he dumps an Ice cream van called Rosie in the driveway claiming it s from an uncle she didn t know existed.In her world, the only thing that counts is family and the only person you can trust to get things right is yourself.The advent of Rosie, and along with the van Sean, is about to put all her beliefs to the test.Sean is an outsider and has no intention of coming in out of the cold He s poured his love into the land and the creatures, experience telling him that people are unsafe to trust your emotions with.They both have a lot to learn and a lot to teach each other The journey we go on with Sean and Elle Lovage is full of humour and sweetness and some sizzle that is downright dangerous with all that Ice cream around.I found the book a little slow to start with There was quite a bit of set up and a lot of characters introduced along with the background This is a first of a series with Sorrel s story coming out in Kiss in April May this year However once it got going it went with a bang, sort of like Rosie, and romped home with all the emotional satisfaction you could want Rating 8 out of 10 GREAT READ First line Life is like ice cream you have to take it one lick at a time Rosie s DiaryMemorable Scene Sean removing a ladybug from Elle s hair sweetness Elle Amery is a responsible young woman who puts others needs and wellbeing before her own She s determined not to

of 10 GREAT READ First line Life is like ice cream you have to take it one lick at a time Rosie s DiaryMemorable Scene Sean removing a ladybug from Elle s hair sweetness Elle Amery is a responsible young woman who puts others needs and wellbeing before her own She s determined not to follow in her mother s promiscuous footsteps She s also independent and sensible and self sufficient Sean McElroy is an illegitimate son who bares the emotional scars of being unwanted He sees himself as an outsider and though he s very direct and blunt, he s guarded when it comes to showing emotions.Without any explicitness but with plenty of sizzle I was pulled into the chemistry between Elle and Sean The attraction between them was palpable throughout the book They meet and are thrown together through unusual circumstances and the undeniable chemistry is what draws them towards each other constantly This built up the kind of sensual tension I love to read in my romance novels I really liked how the back story and characterization was slowly given form by giving little tidbits at a time This made it very intriguing and kept me reading, just to find out what the deal was with Sean, Elle and their families And also after finishing the book I really had the feeling I knew Elle and Sean.Though the story is very character driven, the plot of the ice cream van and the mystery surrounding Elle s great uncle formed a very nice change to the emotional and romantic focus throughout the book.Liz Fielding s writing is such a joy to read Fluent, easy and clean it made me fly through this book There s a subtle humorous undertone throughout the entire story, despite the emotional stuff going on, that makes you smile without even knowing you re doing it TEMPTED BY TROUBLE is a cute story that s filled with emotional depth and sizzling chemistry Excellently written it held my attention from start to finish and every time I had to stop reading I didn t want to I really loved the quotes at the start of every chapter They were funny and spot on If you re an ice cream lover, you should read this book for these quotes alone Even I, a non lover of ice cream loved them Favorite Quotes Who wants to know she asked.Her hormones might be ready to throw caution to the wind they were Amery hormones after all but while they might have escaped into the yard for a little exercise , she wasn t about to let them go walkies Sean McElroy His voice matched the looks Low, sexy, soft as Irish mist And her hormones flung themselves at the gate like a half grown puppy in a let me at him response as he offered his hand She should object Tell him to keep his hands to himself Except for that she d have to be able to get her lips, tongue and teeth in a row to form the words And then make her mouth say them.Falling in love wasn t hard Compared to not falling in love it was a piece of cake That required concentration Lose it for a moment and love slipped unnoticed under your defenses as sweetly, as effortlessly as an ice cream sliding down a parched throat on a summer s day No drama or noise Just a smile, a touch, a kiss was all it took to bring down even the most powerful fortifications, so that without warning you were falling, with nothing to grasp hold of.

of parent for her two younger half sisters and carer for her grandmother So they should be totally incompatible But Cupid doesn t match people up like a dating agency, so naturally these two people have to be together despite their very different outlook on life They re brought together by the sudden disappearance of an uncle Elle never knew she had Sean delivers the uncle s vintage ice cream van to her, along with a diary full of bookings for events to attend As if she wasn t busy enough But Elle meets the challenge, endearing her to the reader with her determination Sean meanwhile keeps on helping out, even though he s done his part by delivering the van, because he just can t stay away He even goes driving off on a wild goose chase to try to find the vanished uncle Sean and Elle are both very likeable I liked Sean in particular, and especially the way he cooled down after a stimulating phone conversation with Elle I like how he often calls her Lovage, a name she s always tried to avoid people even knowing about, but never to make fun of her He finds it all part of her allure Elle s caring for her family is shown not only in her care of her sisters and grandmother, but the fact she s worried about her missing uncle, even though she s never met him and is prepared to take on his ice cream van just because he s family Neither of them are perfect Elle has a touch of the control freak combined with martyr about her, insisting on being the one to do everything for her sisters, to the point she realises she s maybe done too much for them, and isn t preparing them to be independent Sean makes a serious mistake in a pivotal scene So the characters had that depth and layers that makes me sometimes impatient or annoyed with them, just like real people In the UK this is in the new Riva line and it seems like the sexual content of that line is pretty variable I ve read two others which had on page sex This one on the other hand, doesn t, which was the case when Liz Fielding s books were in the Romance line But though there s no on page sex or indeed off page it does have that characteristic sexual tension that I expect in a Liz Fielding book Maybe not quite as strongly as some other ones I ve read, there s a feel of agradual building of the romance after the initial strong attraction But there s definitely chemistry between the characters.I have to put a word in about the cover too I like the new Riva covers and this one is especially good, with the warm red contrasting with the acid yellow of the ice lolly and the model s eyeshadow It s modern and saucy and just all around delicious Very appropriate for the book in fact T is forTrouble Elle Amery knows her late mother s bad boy loving reputation was not the best inheritance Tempted So when

then, with some education I soon was dreaming about creamy ice cream by the sea When Liz told me she was writing a book with an ice cream van, I thought how typically Liz Liz does such a brilliant job of adding a touch of whimsy to her books, and a heroine in charge of an ice cream van named Rosie sounded just perfect.I ll confess I had moments of confusion at the beginning of the book there is a rather lot of characters, a missing great uncle, and a family secret But once I got into it.and especially once we figure out Uncle Basil s part of the story, it all clicks together Sean is sexy and farstable and dependable than he perhaps thinks he is He s also capable ofemotionally than he believes himself to be Elle is perenially optimistic, but she s also tiredtired of holding the family together for the past several years At some point she was bound to break and there s a scene with her sisters that I loved For once Elle valued herself and what she d given and given up for her family and all she wants is a little help There are some lovely scenes with Sean he s really quite swoonworthy but I have to admit my favourite scene is with Sean and Elle s sisters, Sorrel and Geli and the dog Mabel It s a turning point for Sean, and it s the kind of scene that really, in a very short space, says so very much about the characters.I really hope Liz writes both Sorrel s story AND Geli s they re fab characters all on their own, each very individual and deserving of a HEA.Whimsical and romantic yep, that just about sums it up And I loved the ending Rosie at a wedding and the story of the chocolate flake, and then Sean s birthday at the very endI just feel bad that we didn t get to see the chocolate sauce. What I think is, I wish I could write like Liz Fielding This is a great Mills Boon with a delightful idea centring around how wonderful it would be to find love and laughter through owning an old fashioned ice cream van you know the sort that used to make your mouth water when you were a schoolkid and you heard those chimes ringing out through the streets We used to have one turn up outside the back gates of our school every summer s day and reading Liz s book reminded me of sprinkles and What I think is, I wish I could write like Liz Fielding This is a great Mills Boon with a delightful idea centring around how wonderful it would be to find love and laughter through owning an old fashioned ice cream van you know the sort that used to make your mouth water when you were a schoolkid and you heard those chimes ringing out through the streets We used to have one turn up outside the back gates of our school every summer s day and reading Liz s book reminded me of sprinkles and raspberry sauce, chocolate flakes and chopped nuts and biscuit cones and hot, hot sun It s a beautifully constructed book where things just fall nicely into place although not without trials and tribulations along the way The heroine, Lovage comes from a family who are all named after herbs and all have very distinctive personalities There s the worrisome teenager Angelica, the dippy grandmother, the wayward Basil who gives Lovage the ice cream van and all the way through you are wondering why, and Lovage herself who is hard working and whose main aim in life is to keep her wayward family ticking along The hero Sean who has experienced rejection Big Time and has athan difficult family means you can perfectly well see why the last thing he would want to do would be to become entangled with Lovage and her brood This is a confection of a read, as sweet and satisfying as vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce trickling down a cone I ve become a big fan of Liz Fielding s writing over the past year, and she never disappoints I ve said it before and I ll say it again, Liz has a way of making her two characters sizzle on the page with sexual and sensual tension.There are great amounts of flirting in this book Who doesn t love flirting Being a Riva, I did wonder how far the sex would go This again is very much a Liz Fielding style book it sa Cherish Romance rather than a modern heat, but if you like Liz s style, y I ve become a big fan of Liz Fielding s writing over the past year, and she never disappoints I ve said it before and I ll say it again, Liz has a way of making her two characters sizzle on the page with sexual and sensual tension.There are great amounts of flirting in this book Who doesn t love flirting Being a Riva, I did wonder how far the sex would go This again is very much a Liz Fielding style book it sa Cherish Romance rather than a modern heat, but if you like Liz s style, you ll love this book in fact this could be her hottest one I ve read so far Where the book lacks sex , it still has its sizzle It does not disappoint There was so much tension, these two characters needed the ice cream to cool down and so did I I loved both characters with their flaws, and how Liz got them together with a wonderful, unique third character Rosie the vintage ice cream van Tempted by Trouble is a witty, sexy and fun read, with moments of effective emotion And as a friend Becky Black has commented, I am just LOVING the Riva book covers On a side note, I went to a wedding recently which had an ice cream van there and I thought of Liz and Tempted By Trouble as I ordered my ice cream This is the second book of Liz Fielding s that I have read and I am rapidly becoming a great fan of her work Her writing is engaging, romantic, and well paced with likeable characters, and realistic situations This book is about Elle, a girl who is a bit downtrodden and totally depended upon by her family, who meets Rosie my favourite character the ice cream van and Sean, the hunky delivery guy of said Rosie The book is will they, won t they, will she slap him, will he leave a great book This is the second book of Liz Fielding s that I have read and I am rapidly becoming a great fan of her work Her writing is engaging, romantic, and well paced with likeable characters, and realistic situations This book is about Elle, a girl who is a bit downtrodden and totally depended upon by her family, who meets Rosie my favourite character the ice cream van and Sean, the hunky delivery guy of said Rosie The book is will they, won t they, will she slap him, will he leave a great book that I pretty much devoured in the course of one evening A brilliant addition to any reader s collection I love Liz Fieldings books and this was no exception I did struggle in a few places however with this one The first three pages were very descriptive and at times the narrative became choppy and hard to follow but it had a guarenteed to make me cry and then be happy ending.
