Callie Mahone and her husband Austin are in a marital rut. In an attempt to liven things up, they decide to take a road trip. The destination? Wherever the pin sticks into the map. They each hope that the excitement wrought from new surroundings and an enforced proximity will kick start their flagging marriage, but when their car breaks down at a questionable service station on the way to Bandit Creek, a new element is added that changes everything. Liam Fraser, a sexy stranger that they meet at the service station, patches up their car… and then is thrown together with the pair again in Bandit Creek. Over the course of the short trip, Callie and Austin are forced to decide whether the benefits of introducing another into their marriage bed outweigh the alternative…
Terms of Desire and Terms of Surrender are the first two installments of the Tempt Me Twice Series by Lauren Hawkeye. Having read two of her previous books, My Wicked Gladiator and Pick Me Up (from the Hot and Haunted) anthology, I was eager to read more.

The Tempt Me Twice series reads as a serial novella, and I love reading the story in installments. In the first part, Terms of Desire, we meet Callie and Austin. The couple are on the road, headed to a getaway spot unknown to Callie. Their marriage is in trouble. Conflicting personalities and closed off feelings have caused a rift between them that may prove to be irreperable. When they run into car trouble, Callie and Austin meet Liam, a sexy and very helpful stranger. Though she loves her husband and wants to remain true to him, she can't help but fall into lustful daydreams starring Liam. These dreams, which also involve her husband, offer a super sexy sneak peek of what's in store. With that kind of instant connection, it's a good thing they part ways and she'll never be tempted by his sexy body and face again....

I like Hawkeye's writing and knew I would end up enjoying Terms of Desire, but it took me a bit to really get what was going to happen in the series. This part is more about establishing characters and relationships. It did take a very nice turn towards the end and I was happy to already have part two on hand.

Favorite Quote:

  "When he leaned over to check the air in his tires I dropped my purse into the dirt. His ass was tight, tight and hard looking, and for the first time in a very long time I found myself wondering what it would be like to touch someone other than my husband."  (19%)

Liam offers to help Callie and Austin explore the side of their relationship that they have been hiding from... but first Callie must be convinced that a BDSM relationship is what she wants. Liam and Austin do their best to show her the pleasure that is within reach, and Callie wonders if what has always seemed forbidden can really be hers.

**This review contains spoilers for part one, Terms of Desire**
Emotionally Charged, Thoughtful, and Sexy

In part one of Tempt Me Twice, we meet Callie and the two men she desires, Austin and Liam. Now that the couple have reached their destination and Callie has discovered exactly why they're there, she must now decide if she is ready to submit to Austin and Liam's plan.

Callie is an unhappy chick at the beginning of Terms of Surrender. She's learned that Austin has brought her to the resort with a very specific, and naughty, plan in mind. To make matters worse, Liam is in on the plan. Callie, already feeling vulnerable, is understandably angry with the two men for making decisions on her behalf. But, she's also secretly intrigued. Once they finally get Callie on board, this trio start to rock.

The next step is to define their roles and learn to play by the rules...

Like part one, Terms of Surrender has a lot of emotional turmoil. Callie and Austin want to make their marriage work, and will work for that, but they each, particularly Austin, have some  issues they need to iron out. It's pretty cool that so many books these days deal with "roles" of dominance and submission. It's an interesting and valid topic and I can't get enough of it.

As for the sexy...Lauren Hawkeye definitely brought it in Terms of Surrender. It was a nice build-up, with enough reservations by Callie to make it ring true. The story definitely ends with a bang. A sexy bang that left me anxious for part three. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Favorite Quotes:

   " 'Is this what you want, Callie? Is this what will make you happy?' Austin nipped at my ear and I shivered. I couldn't pretend that I didn't know what he was referring to, and when I looked over his shoulder and locked stares with Liam, I certainly couldn't pretend that I didn't want it."  (80%)
