The heir-apparent to Pure Talent, ex-playboy Xavier Starks had it all figured out. With an engagement to Hollywood’s hottest actress and his innovative expansion plans, he can finally prove to his dad, Jax, that he’s responsible enough to step into a leadership role at their company. Until a jilting-gone-viral puts Xavier back in the relentless social-media spotlight, out of the running for partner—and in competition with the last person he ever expected: his very-grown-up childhood friend and girl-next-door . . .
 
With her acclaimed sports talent roster and unparalleled instincts, agent Zara Reid knows she can take Pure Talent to the next level. To make the most of her mentor Jax’s faith in her, she’ll go head-to-head and scheme-to-scheme with Xavier to prove she’s got what it takes. But suddenly, long days working too close together turn into reckless, insatiable nights.

The Way You Tempt Me by Elle Wright deals with a steamy friends to lovers office romance between Zara Reid and Xavier Starks sparks a strong connection throughout this book.

Xavier Starks works at Pure Talent, an agency run by his father, Jax, but Xavier wants more. About to propose to Hollywood’s hottest actress, Xavier’s life suddenly goes abrupt and the media takes no survivors.

Zara Reid was ready for a promotion at her job, but when one of her friends and coworkers takes her ideas and gets her promotion, Zara quits, but not without a job opportunity from Jax, Xavier’s father.

When Zara and Xavier meet after a few years of not seeing each other, their attraction evident in each others’ eyes, unable to see the way they’ve grown and matured as if their hotness grew to the extremes. They are both close friends, but when Xavier discovers that his new competition for the Pure Talents Sports agency is Zara, they go head to head for the job, along the way, Jax slowly gets involved. But Xavier and Zara’s attraction continues to grow as they work together to see who can get the job first.

I gave The Way You Tempt Me four stars, absolutely enjoying my time reading this. There were so many moments that made me laugh and gush in awe. I was able to enjoy the slow process that Xavier and Zara went through when Zara continuously tried to deny her attraction toward Xavier.

But their tension between each other and their deep-rooted connection from being childhood friends brought them closer together, including the projects that they had to do with each other for work. Their office romance was steamy to read and the way they gravitated toward each other was something I thoroughly enjoyed.

Though sometimes they would lack communication, for the majority of the part they worked very well together and did not go through any misunderstanding. They were evidently in love and the way their romance was written made me fall in love with Zara and Xavier.

The story was strong and the office romance and friends to lovers throughout the book made me enjoy it very much and I’m so excited to read book #2 in the series.

I absolutely enjoyed reading The Way You Tempt Me and would recommend it.

Thank you again to NetGalley for providing me an ARC for an honest review.
