From Temptation - Lynn Kelling This is basically a continuation of Delvier Us and really cannot be read as a standalone. As dark as the first installment was, this one is even more so.

Going into this I had no idea what to expect, but was hoping to see a continuation of Darrek and Gabe building their relationship and working through Gabe's horrific past and it's effect on them as a couple. That being said, this book just devastated me. What comes out between the two main couples, D & G and Ben and Kyle, is even more horrifying than what came out in the first. We know from Deliver Us that Kyle is deeply troubled. Here we find out why and it affects not only his relationship with Ben, but with Gabe and best friend Darrek, and it turns everything they were trying to work out in the first book upside down.

This book is dark and not for the faint of heart (especially if you are sensitive to themes of child abuse). There is no HEA and there will be a 3rd book coming.
