Title: Tempting Levi

Series: Cade Brothers #1

Author: Jules Barnard

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: June 6, 2017




Off-limits never looked so tempting…problem is,

she’s my ex’s little sister.

Cade men are known for two things: arrogance and competitiveness. I grew up in

one of the wealthiest, most dysfunctional families in Lake Tahoe, and all I

wanted was to get the hell out. I thought I’d succeeded. Until an accident

burned up my firefighter ambitions. Then Dad died and left me in charge of the

family’s luxury resort.

Now I’ve got financially uptight advisors telling me what to do, and I need

someone I can trust working at my side. The perfect candidate walks through the

door in her pencil skirt, fitted white blouse, and that mass of wavy blond hair

she tries to contain.

The only problem? She’s my cheating ex’s younger sister.

Hell no. The last thing I need is another Wright female in my life.

But Emily’s good at the job, and she seems trustworthy. I should ignore the

desire I have for her. But after all I’ve lost, I’m tempted by what I can’t

have and ready to stoke the flame that smolders between us. As long as this

Wright sister doesn’t betray me the way the last one did.

Then again, I always liked playing with fire.

She climbed to her feet and leaned into him, tracing the

scar above his eye. “I like this scar.”

He chuckled and dropped his cheek into her hand. “Glad it

pleases someone. It didn’t feel too good when it happened.”

“I don’t like it because you were hurt. It’s just—it brought

you to me. And it reminds me that you’re not the same person I met years ago.

That we’ve both changed… However”—she grinned saucily—“scars are pretty


He tugged at her top and kissed her collarbone, tickling her

with his lips, because the naughty man had quickly discovered a sensitive spot.

“My scar looks hot, does it?”

She laughed as he continued to pepper her skin with light

kisses. She lifted her shoulder in defense. “Very sexy.” 

“Hmmm, don’t give me ideas, Emily, or I won’t let you go






Levi Cade just inherited the job of running his family’s resort along with the help of his brothers. He doesn’t know all the ins and outs of the business but his father assigned him some help before his passing. Unfortunately, the help is his cheating ex’s sister.

Even though there is every reason to not be together, the building sparks between these two will be difficult to ignore. Will Levi trust his heart to another Wright sister?

This book is a spin-off from the Men of Lake Tahoe series but even if you haven’t read that series, like me, you will still enjoy this book.  I really liked both characters and the chemistry between them was great. I loved all of the Cade brothers and look forward to reading more about them in the future.  I will definitely be reading more by Jules Barnard!
