The Temptation Trials Part II by B. Truly is full of excitement, suspense, drama, romance, mystery, and paranormal. This book is rated for 18 and over. There is not much foul language but strong sexual scenes.

It starts in the reality hit show Temptation Trials the two couples Cali, Cade, Stefani and Tobias are participating in. The Regime in their time arranges the marriages when turning 21. So the two couples felt that being on the show might be the last chance to save their relationship from being destroyed by the Regime. The two couples finally reunite after being away from each other for weeks with no contact and only seeing each other on t.v.

However, it was not pleasant because both couples surprised themselves by getting into deeper situations then they wanted to. They knew that being on the show was not going to be easy. What they didn't know is what was making them cheat. One of the individuals knew what was going on behind the scenes after exploring with a guy she met on the t.v. show. The couples figured out how the Regime came to terms of arranged marriages. A plan was formed to hopefully stop the Regime from the power of controlling lives. It came to be more complicated than expected and left with a shocking twist of a death. Can the couples stop the Regime from the power they have to continue on with the rule of marriage?

The author did a very good job in the first book of making it easy to understand each character. I appreciated the fact the same characters were kept in the second book. The storyline was easy to pick up and remember where it left off in the first book. I enjoyed this romance story because the ending was not what I expected. I've said before that I have a hard time reading romance novels where I know what is going to happen at the end. In this book, I was shocked with part of the ending. There isn't anything in the story I found that I did not like.

The two books are a quick and easy read. This second book is hard to put down. The author did a very good job making it exciting with a twist to keep a person interested. There were no misspelled words and no mistakes. This is not something I would normally read, but I am glad that I took the chance to read it. I am going to rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. I look forward to reading more books by this author.

I agree with you! I am currently reading that book and it is a great book! Temptation trials is my first romance book. What interest me is that this book taught me more than I expected and it did creat a impact in my life.

Thank you for your review

I hated this book and gave it a pretty bad review. Is the second book that much better? Even with the cliffhanger I had no desire to pick up Part 2.

I didn't like how portrayed the characters to be super flirts with zero sense of maturity, as there were cases of love triangles. While at the same time the people involved in the love triangles were seemingly struggling for a normal married life. I mean it doesn't make sense. I thought you wash your clothes to get clean and not, you dirt your clothes to get clean.

I understand where the both of you are coming from with this series. Normally this isn't something I would probably read. However, what I did enjoy about it is the fact that I didn't know exactly what was going to happen in the end except for maybe with one couple. The twist of it kept me going. I agree though with the married thing. However, it is not a true story and based in WWIII era which does not exist.

I felt like the plot of this book was as subtle as getting smacked in the face. At no point was I surprised by a single plot twist.
