Review Surrounded by Temptation by Mandy Harbin

Title: Surrounded by Temptation (Woods Family # 3)  
Source: Author request
Genre: Paranormal romance- shifters
Length: Novella
Reviewed by Laurie 

When Krista needs Ariel’s biochemical expertise because her new boyfriend can turn into a mountain lion, Ariel thinks her sister has lost her mind. But the possibility of a major discovery like this is too much of a temptation to ignore. Create a drug to stop a shifter from forcing a mating? Only if she got to test his sexual limits herself.

Rob thinks Ariel is an angel in disguise, and he immediately knows she’s the one for him. But is he strong enough to resist his animal’s need to claim her once the temptation begins?

This is a great series and I have enjoyed reading each book. This series should be read in order because as you read each book you find out more about how and why this family came into existence, it’s like unwrapping a surprise in each time. I love how each brother is different with their own unique personality, and sometimes they do clash with one another, so it really makes the story feel more realistic.

 If they mate with someone that they are not destined to be with the prospective mate may turn on them and end up killing each other because they are not each others' true mate. So, they end up living a very lonely existence as they are each in need to being mated. Each heroine that comes to the house has to be married or well, you can get the picture of what happens if they are not mated it can get ugly.

This story focuses on one brother in particular, Rob. Rob is very strong and willing to do anything when it comes to getting a mate. Krista is in need of some true love because her husband left her, but she isn’t just quite ready yet to being with another man so Rob has to fight to win her over.

Mandy keeps things fast paced and hot with a great storyline, as she does with the rest of her books in this series. She is also able to convey lots of emotions and questions in the story that leaves your mind wondering what’s happening to the father and what’s he really not telling everyone. I think it all turned out great in the end. I would recommend series to anyone who likes their shifters'.
