Temptation trials, is an adult romance fiction written by B. Truly. It is the first book in the “temptation trials” series
After World War III, a new dictatorship regime arose that ruled over the whole world. In order to have law abiding citizens, they demanded obedience and cooperation from every citizen. The regime dictated the kind of music you could listen to, what programs to watch and whom to love. Infact they dictated on every aspect of a person’s life. Crime was not tolerated. Shindigs, dancing, drinking and such like activities could have a person imprisoned. The regime chose who you should marry and citizens were allowed to date until the age of twenty one, after which you are married off to your matched partner.
Cali Nasser and Stefani, the protagonists in the story, are living during this period. They fall in love with Kincade and Tobias respectively. This is after the two men save them from the regime enforcers who busted them at an illegal party. They try to supress their feelings of love for each other, to no avail. In order for the couples to have a chance of staying with each other, they decide to join the ‘temptation trials’, which is the only option available to them. If they manage to go through all the temptations presented to them, they get to marry their soul mates.
I absolutely loved the story. It is quite intriguing. I could barely put it down, but it unfortunately ends abruptly without any kind of closure. I also had a problem with how the story started. It was kind of weird how Kincade and Tobias meet Cali and Stefani in a party and within few hours of meeting, they tell them all about their secret resistance organization and take them to their headquarters, which is supposed to be a top secret.
Errors in this book are minimal. For instance, “He was ripped from me with nothing I could do”, “Are you mad me?” and such grammatical errors that can be solved with another round of proofreading. There is also use of so much American slang which might make it hard for people who aren’t familiar with them to read. But personally I had no problem with it.
I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars, because of the reasons I have mentioned above. I recommend this book for those who love a good romance story with love triangles and are into politics. The book is also purely for adults only because of the intense sexual content.
