Book Review: A Lesson in Temptation (Stanton Family, Book 4) by Audra North

About A Lesson in Temptation:

Adam Harkness pulled himself out of poverty to become one of the world's most respected Finance professors, but at the cost of his personal life. When a well-meaning friend gifts him with a dance course, Adam decides to attend one class out of courtesy, but no more than that. He has work to do, after all - or at least, that's what he tells himself.

After being bullied in high school, Julie Stanton took refuge in her studies. But now that her hard work has paid off and Julie has found success in her job, it's time to focus on finding the same happiness in the rest of her life.

When Adam walks into the same tango class that Julie signed up for, she recognizes him immediately as the professor whom she had a crush on in college. Both Adam and Julie have proven themselves to be excellent scholars. But when the attraction between them turns into something more, will they be able to open their hearts and learn a new lesson - how to love.

Each book in the Stanton Family series is a standalone, full-length novella that can be enjoyed out of order.

Book #4 A Lesson in Temptation

My Review:

What happens when Adam Harkness, a college TA-turned-Professor, comes face-to-face with his former student, Julie Stanton? They dance!!

Adam was given the gift of ballroom dancing lessons from his boss. Not one to take time away from his career, he decides to show up for one class and then call it a day. That is, until a breathtaking beauty from his past enters the room. The chemistry between Adam and Julie is undeniable from the start. The second she enters the dance class the room erupts in electricity. Yet, Adam is still unsure about allowing anymore interruptions to come into his life. He's been so focused on his career that he's forgotten how to have fun. Enter Julie Stanton. She also has a great career but is more social and does her best to draw Adam out of his routine.

The author did a great job making the scenes in A Lesson in Temptation very realistic and believable.  I enjoyed the plot and the reuniting of two people who were in no position to start a romance at the time being brought back together. The idea behind a dance class was unique and I enjoyed how Adam was able to look beyond his career and see that there is more to life.
