What happens when you’re forced to seduce the one person you vowed never to love?
You get screwed … in more than one way.
I walked out of Tucker Middleton’s bedroom seven years ago, leaving him hurt and angry. Now I need his help; the only way I can get it, is to make him think I want him back.
The only problem is we have silently vowed to hate one another for the rest of our lives. In order to get Tucker to help me—I have to seduce him.
Hell yes! I’m the CEO of CMI Consulting. If I set my mind to something, I make it happen.
Charleston Monroe is playing me for a fool. If she believes for one second I’m going to let her walk into my life to help her save the very job that ripped her away from me, she’s got another thing coming.
She thinks she can seduce me, and I let her believe she can. After all, I’m getting what I’ve always wanted.

I love the idea of the hero and heroine working their own agendas against one another because those kind of battles usually end up blowing up in one or both of their faces, especially when business and pleasure are mixed, creating one doozy of a showdown – one that’s outcome is bound to stir up past heartbreak and mistakes but also offer the couple an opportunity to make amends and move forward, hopefully together, despite the amount of time they’ve been apart and ill feelings that have remained.
Charleston ‘Charlie’ Monroe and Tucker Middleton definitely have unfinished business to contend with, and this is made clearer when these two lay eyes on one another for the first time in 7 years, and to complicate things even more, Charlie desperately needs Tucker’s help, which means that if she wants to accomplish what she needs to in order to keep her father’s company, she’ll have to seduce the only man she’s every truly loved despite the fact that he can’t stand her for what happened between them all those years ago.
What I found most entertaining about Charlie and Tucker’s story is that at some points in the book, it’s unclear who is seducing whom, but that’s what makes the plot that much more exciting and entertaining because readers get to watch everything play out right in front of them, amusing ourselves by the push and pull as well as the back and forth that exist between the hero and heroine and waiting for the time when they both lay themselves bare and work through everything that still seems to be holding them back from fully giving into the feelings that they have never truly given up.
There’s so much to love about Seduce Me, book one in Kelly Elliott’s Austin Singles series, and it’s not just the fact that there’s a caution after the blurb that talks of ‘crazy hot sex’ and ‘one shaved pussy.’ Both Charlie and Tucker are dynamic characters who show all sides of themselves as their story progresses, and despite our potential frustration with them due to their choices and their apparent dishonest as readers continue to get to know and understand everything that makes them who they are, it’s not a matter of if but when these two will give into the sexual tension that surrounds them, knowing that it’s always been Charlie for Tucker and Tucker for Charlie.
Second chance romances are definitely one of my favorite romance tropes and and even though Charlie’s and Tucker’s history has to be dealt with, amongst the hurt feelings, broken hearts, and conflicted emotions, is a love that will be doing the seducing because as much as Charlie and Tucker want to think that they’re in control of their feelings and actions, they lost that power a weekend over 7 years ago, and even if it takes them time to accept that truth, when they do, the steam, sass, and angst will explode into a passionate connection – one that they’ll never stop wanting.
