Lucy Score accomplishes what she set out to achieve in Fall Into Temptation - a contemporary romance with a story set in a quaint, small town (and the town is just as important to the storyline as the characters and plot). While not a serial (thankfully), the books are best read in order as there are connections. However, each book is a complete story, which is good to know. The tone of this book takes us deeper into the importance of family and community. Blue Moon Bend's second Pierce bachelor succumbs to love in book 2 when he meets a gorgeous yoga instructor (Gianna) who is warm, loyal, hardworking, honest and a real woman with deeply held family values. Beckett is the town’s lawyer-come-mayor whose motivation is to emulate his father, a generous, but simple man of integrity. Beckett comes across as conservative, but there is a lot more to the real man than meets the eye. The attraction between Gianna and Beckett is immediate and powerful, but of course there are several complications to forming a relationship and there are many differences in their approaches to life. Both are reluctant to complicate things further by getting involved but, oh the temptation! Some of the things I loved about Falling Into Temptation are: The writing, plot and pace were very good and the characters were relatable and well-developed. It was good to catch-up with The Pierce family and regulars from Blue Moon Bend as well as meet Gianna's two children who were very important to the plot (Evan's circumstances were heartbreaking and Aurora couldn't have been cuter.) I also loved the sassy, funny and honest dialogue between Gianna and Beckett. In addition, Lucy used normal people in normal situations to highlight each of her characters' personal journey through life, what makes them tick, how they handle challenges and how they grow as people. It was remiss of me not to continue the series earlier (not sure how i missed it??) So, now it's on to Jax and Joey's story.
