ARC Review of Sasha's Temptation by Silke Ming


Sasha Santorelli’s wealthy friends take her to a swanky bar to celebrate her 46th birthday. There she meets Jack Hammer, a twenty-five-year-old dancer who performs for her, and it is clear that they are taken with each other. As a prank, the friends pay Jack to spend a week with her in her waterfront condo, and although it is clear that they are both interested in each other, there is no sex, but she finds Jack loving and caring.
On day seven of Jack’s visit, she comes down with a horrible migraine, and he has just the remedy for it. Hot, hot sex! This begins their full-fledged relationship, but Sasha is insecure because of their age difference. Jack tells her age is only a number, and she becomes more confident. Jack receives a position at a prestigious accounting firm and moves in with Sasha, much to the chagrin of her wealthy friends. 


Even though Silke Ming has written several stories through Bookstrand, Sasha's Temptation is the first one I have read of her work.  This isn't the first romance I read featuring an older woman and a younger man, but it is the first one I actually enjoyed. I liked the chemistry between Jack and Sasha, and I enjoyed watching a younger man be more in control of a older woman in the bedroom. The story is unique, charming, with some wonderfully humorous friends, and some seriously sexy scenes. The characters were well-defined and some were downright fun.

Sasha just turned 46 and her friends decided to take her out for her birthday to a bar where she meets the hot young dancer, Jack. He is 25 and is a gorgeous young male specimen, that seems to be instantly attracted to the older, yet VERY sexy woman that is Sasha Santorelli. We got to meet some of the other Widows of "The Five Widows", and they are just as fun, and snarky, and just care about each other. The best friends take it upon themselves to set up Jack and Sasha for a week together and boy, what a week it was!

My only real complaint about this story was I felt like there was a few repetitive motions in the book that was used quite a bit in the book. Like Jack calling Sasha, then him going to Sasha at night and leaving in the morning and repeat. I  felt the general story was great and it was both sensual and delightful. There was LOTS of great sex scenes but I would of liked to have seen the couple together more outside of Sasha's place and the bedroom.

After some contemplation, I rated Sasha's Temptation a THREE OUT OF FIVE STARS. I liked the characters, the HOT sex, and the chemistry and dynamic of the story. After reading this book, I am definitely interested in other books by Silke Ming and am looking forward to exploring her romances.
