From New York Times and USA Today bestselling indie author Nicole Edwards comes the seventh book in her Alluring Indulgence series, erotic romances featuring the Walker brothers from Coyote Ridge, Texas, and their sizzling-hot love interests.

Sawyer Walker has never run into problems with women. The female population tends to swarm toward him, in fact, and he’s never had a complaint. 

But there’s one woman Sawyer has always had his eye on. A woman who won’t give him the time of day. In recent months, it would seem that Kennedy Endsley is opening up to Sawyer, but she’s got a few surprises in store for him. Because, as hard as she finds it to resist the handsome Walker brother, she won’t give in easily. Not when her heart is on the line.

I have been waiting for this book for what seems like forever.  I have been in love with Sawyer's antics since Kaleb when he was standing out on the side of the road with a sign exclaiming 'Will work for sex!'  Yep, Sawyer has been memorable in every book so far but we never knew much about him personally.  Three things we knew for sure, he was fiercely protective where his family was concerned, he was a comedian and he's been in love with Kennedy Endsley for an undetermined amount of time.

Where Sawyer starts, we get to see how Kennedy came to hate Sawyer and most of the boys in Coyote Ridge.  High School of all places where a book smart Kennedy couldn't escape the cruel jokes of Sawyer and his band of buddies.  Sawyer knew even then something was changing where his feeling were concerned for Kennedy but she was so hell bent on hating him and lumping him in with his friends that she never batted an eyelash in his direction.  Heading off to college, Kennedy made something of herself and vowed to return to her home to show up everyone who had ever made fun of her in school, including Sawyer.

Sawyer of course didn't rest on his laurels after High School either.  He started up Walker Demolition with his brothers and later designed and now partially owns and operates the Alluring Indulgence Resort with his family.  One night at Moonshiners, Sawyer makes a promise to Kennedy that he is done with their game of cat and mouse  He's going to pursue her publicly and in any embarrassing way he can to get her to pay attention to him and finally take him seriously enough to go out on a real date.

It's game on for these two and when the sparks finally fly you better have a couple sets of panties on hand cause these two are beyond hot.  I need an better adjective but can't come up with one right now.  The way Sawyer takes Kennedy for the first time is the kind of roaring fire we should all seek and find in our lives. You'll be sweating for sure as these two sort out their feelings for one another and explore the attraction they both obviously have toward the other.

The suspense of the story is paced well and done right as Nicole is known for.  The writing is spot on and delicious and will have you panting and once again begging for more.  I can't get enough of Nicole and the way she weaves these stories together so masterfully.  Seeing a little of Luke and Cole in Sawyer was a welcome surprise and you even get a little update on a few of our favorite couples from Club Destiny, you always get a glimpse of where your favorite characters lives have taken them.  I love seeing old friends and that's what makes these stories so incredible!  I can't wait for Brendon to see what happens next but I'm also sad knowing it will be the final Alluring Indulgence story.  Yes there will be follow on stories in a different series but I'm not ready to say goodbye!  Luckily with Nicole, you never really have to and if you do you can always come home, open up Book 1 and start from the very beginning!

Highly recommended!
