The Men of CCD: Tempting Turner, by Marie Rochelle, is a re-release of a book originally published in 2010. Even though the content of the book has not changed, I felt like I was reading the book for the first time.
Dave Turner is a former competitive body builder that has met who he feels is his “one”. He watched his friends, Hayward and Clinton, fall in love and he wants that for himself. We meet him as he is completing his degree in computers and business administration so that he can further himself. He meets Charisma Miles, a friend of his best friends, and knew he had to do all he could to make her his. As fate would have it, they end up on vacation at the same place and the same time and begin a relationship. The relationship is wrought with ups and downs, mainly because of Charisma’s fear that Dave will be like all the other men she has dated.
It was great to see how Ms. Rochelle brought this couple full circle. Even to the end the reader wasn’t assured the happily ever after. Ms. Rochelle left us in suspense about some things in Dave’s past and whether or not Charisma would accept that part of his life. The addition of Dave’s sister Brittney and Charisma’s best friend Kiera was definitely comic relief. Those two always had a smart comment or quip that gave us a chuckle.
I not only recommend this book, but the entire series to all.
