I love the title for the book and I love stories about men and women who are trying really hard to resist the person they really love/lust for one reason or another. I love the push and pull of it and the long-lusty looks. The clenched fists and the even more clenched jaws. I love how it builds the tension to screaming point all leading to that one moment, that one amazing moment, when one or both of them decide screw it and succumb to temptation.
This is why this clip from Grey’s Anatomy is one of my fav scenes ever. Mark Sloane has been trying really hard to stay away from/keep his mitts off “little Grey”. Until finally she pushes him too far…
In How To Resist Temptation, Cade is trying really hard to stay away from Callie but Callie is always there – pushing and pushing. She’s not afraid to go after what she wants and she has Cade in her sights. And she knows he wants her as badly as she wants him.
Do you like this kind of scenario as much as me or does it just not do it for you – maybe you prefer things up front? Got any favourite books/movies/tv series where this theme is done really well? Bones comes to mind and, a little further back, Moonlighting.
How To Resist Temptation is out now!
