REVIEWS - The Temptations Series by Janine Infante Bosco

This is one series I absolutely adored.  Janine Infante Bosco really brings this series to life with her writing style and her wonderfully mafioso and biker characters.  Each story gets better and better.

Illicit Temptations (Tempted Series, #1)
5 Passionate and Intense Mafia Stars

Janine Infante Bosco really brings Mafia to the forefront. Believable and intense, you think you know these characters … but do you? I loved the way Janine always kept me hanging and captivated as to what was going to happen next.

Michael and Nikki’s story is one of passion and electricity.

Michael has had it rough ever since his father died. Being the underboss to one of the mob’s biggest gangsters will do that to you.

His circumstances are not good and he is forced to move back with the Pastore Mob family.

Nikki Pastore is the mob boss’s youngest daughter who remembers Michael as her idol. Things haven’t changed much – only that they have both grown into adults. And once they reunite – the passion and the lust they feel towards each other is on fire.

There is so much drama filled within these pages, not to mention excitement, sexy hot scenes and characters you will want to love and hate.

I recommend you read it yourself to understand the intensity, history and the emotion behind Michael and Nikki’s story.

It was an amazing mafia romance which was filled with so much more than blood and death.

What happens to Michael and Nikki? Will they get a HEA?

Janine’s writing style will draw you in from the first word and leave you wanting more at the end.

A deliciously sexy and suspenseful mafia romance not to be missed.

Forbidden Temptations (Tempted, #2)
5 Amazing ‘It’s Only Me, Baby Stars

Congratulations Janine Infante Bosco for pulling out Anthony and Adrianna’s story. What a beautiful, sexy and emotional mafia romance it was.

I loved how these characters loved each other. So fierce. Never giving up on one another, even though they may have thought that was the best way forward.

This story was full of emotion for both Anthony and Adrianna (not to mention the other characters as well). I was pulled into this world of ‘The Mob’ and didn’t want it to end. The push and pull of power was a destroying factor in everyone’s lives. So courageous were Anthony and Adrianna to fight for what they believed in.

Anthony and Adrianna’s journey throughout this romance was not an easy one. It was full of secrets, heartbreak and struggles which you would not want to encounter yourself.

But what do Anthony and Adrianna endure to reach a HEA? Will they get a HEA?

It was intense and mysterious always holding me captivated as to what would happen next.

I love Janine’s writing style. It is addictive and it brings out the characters emotions and all their best and worst qualities allowing you to feel what they feel.

A deliciously sexy and suspenseful mafia romance not to be missed.

Uncontrollable Temptations (Tempted, #3)
5 Bulldog Stars

Wow, Janine Infante Bosco really pulled out all the bikers with this story. An MC combined Mafia story with a plot that tempts you for more.

If you haven’t met Jack ‘Bulldog’ Parish, then I recommend you do. He is one wild character full of so many layers that you will grow to love.

Reina took a little while to grow on me, but when she came out of her shell, she was a woman to admire for her dedication to Jack.

The fact that Jack and Reina each found their ‘sunshine’ in each other was perfect. How they get there is a total ride and you have to read it to experience it.

They both have their demons, and they both have pasts they would rather forget – but they find good in each other. It really is touching.

All the characters within this story were extremely well placed and well developed. They each had a part to play and it was fun at times as well as brutal. I have to say, I loved the dialogue between the bikers. I really think Janine may have been a biker in her former life. :)

I especially enjoyed seeing all the other characters from book #1 and book #2 intertwined into this story as well. Janine did a great job combining the relationship of these characters together. It added so much depth to the story line and plot.

The plot turns fierce midway through when it thickens and heads roll. All in the name of family and love. I love it when a story can keep me entertained and enthralled at the same time.

If you like MC/Mafia romance, then this is definitely a book you should read and experience yourself.

Well done Janine Infante Bosco on a #tempting story.

Reckless Temptations (Temptations #4)
5 Tempting Stars

Janine Infante Bosco never ceases to amaze me.

Book 4 in the Temptation Series, Janine truly knows how to entertain her reader.

She weaved this story so well with the other stories in this series. The characters and timing of events was perfectly placed. Absolutely loved Riggs and Lauren’s story. Tiger and Kitten were made for each other.

Riggs is such a character. He is a one of my favorite biker bad boys to date. He is entertaining as well as a badass. Lauren plays a great heroine in this story. She is every bit the girl next door looking for the one – feisty and strong - looking for her place in life. Who knew she would find it in a biker.

Every secondary character in this story has a place and they are all so much a part of this story. I love the way the author brings the whole story together with every character from the past and the present.

I adore the way the author brings so much realness to her stories. Especially throughout this series and the Knights MC. The biker dialogue is just brilliant. I felt like I was actually in between amongst them all listening to them talk. Brilliant.

Congratulations Janine Infante Bosco on another entertaining and page turning story full of twists, turns and suspense.

A must read.

Lethal Temptations (Tempted Series, #5)
5 Lethal Stars

I can’t express enough how much Janine Infante Bosco has me hooked on the Temptation Series, from Illicit Temptations to Lethal Temptations. She has so wonderfully woven these stories together and they fit so flawlessly. The intensity, the drama, the plot is perfect.

Each layer in this story will surprise you. All the characters are back and they are just so much a part of this story as Blackie and Lacey are.


Blackie and Lacey’s story is so raw and sensitive that you can’t not feel for them both.

How they heal each other is beautiful and how they get there is an emotionally charged journey for both of them.

I’m so glad Blackie got his story and that this forbidden love was something that healed him.

I would definitely suggest reading this as a series because it gives you so much more as each has their own story that coincides with the other. It will blow you away. In saying that you can definitely be read as a standalone.

Absolutely loved it. A definite must read.

Congratulations Janine Infante Bosco.
