TEMPTATION BLOG TOUR FROM STEVE GENIS


TEMPTATION BY STEVE GENIS BLOG TOUR 22nd October to 31st October 

                                 Hosted By Fallen For Books

SYNOPSIS

Temptation (Book 2)

Life couldn’t get any more complicated for Rick. He’s going through adolescence and coming to terms with his sexuality, which he hides from his parents.


Meet Mr Devereaux, Rick’s PE and French teacher who Rick can’t stop thinking about. To complicate matters even more, Mr Devereaux is married to the principal of the same school.


As Rick comes to terms with being a young homosexual man, he fantasises about what it would be like to be with an older man. After sneaking into his teacher’s office and almost getting caught out, Rick realises that his fantasies and urges are beginning to take over his life.


One night, at dinner, Rick’s father comes home and reveals some news that sends shockwaves through Rick. His father has just received a promotion at work and has been offered to relocate to London, England for one year, with all expenses paid.


Moving to London would mean that Rick would be away from his friends and Mr Devereaux and ultimately, he tries to convince his father to allow him to stay in Australia and live with relatives while he and his mother move to London. His father refuses, leaving Rick no choice but to pack up his life and go with them.


When they arrive in London things are far from easy for Rick. After finally settling into a new English school, Rick makes some new friends including Nate, who is openly gay.


Together Nate and his friends convince Rick to go to a local bar. There he meets Jared, the owner of the bar, who is drop dead gorgeous, gay and he happens to be an older man.


Rick starts spending a lot of time at the bar on weekends with his new friends, and soon, sparks fly between Jared and Rick.


With Mr Devereaux on the other side of the world, Rick has finally found another older man who happens to be gay, but is he the older man that he wants?


Rick’s temporary liing to fe in London is cut short when he suddenly becomes seriously ill and must return to Australia to make a full recovery before he can return back to school. However, it takes Rick longer than anticipated to recover from his illness and unfortunately, having missed out on too much school, he must repeat the school year when he fully recovers, making him the oldest student in his class.


Will Rick finally have a chance with Mr Devereaux?


Temptation is the second book in The Obsession Series, and a prequel to Obsession.

 

MY REVIEW

I fell absolutely head over heels for this book.  The writing is so good and spoke to me so eloquently that it felt as if i were living this book through Rick.  All  of his feelings and emotions were palpable.  Imagine being an 18 year old and not only trying to come to terms with your sexuality  while at the same time obsessing over the man who has stolen your heart.  Rick’s life is hidden from everyone- his parents, his classmates, friends and especially his teacher, Mr. Devereaux who consumes his every thought.  I can’t imagine being Rick and living in constant fear of someone finding out your hidden secrets.  When Rick’s father is temporarily transferred to England, Rick realizes he must put his feelings for his teacher aside and begin to live his life.  One night at a bar, Rick meets the older and deliciously sexy Jared, who in turn rocks Rick’s world.  This pair have a dynamic chemistry.  Their relationship is sexy, funny, sweet and dramatic.  Despite everything, Mr. Devereaux always remains in the back of Rick’s mind.  Rick is conflicted about his new feelings for Jared and his feelings for his teacher.  When a sudden illness forces Rick to leave England, everything in his life, once again, turns topsy turvy.

This book was smart, emotional and addictive.  Temptation totally surprised me in the best possible way.  I loved living vicariously through Rick as he struggles with growing up and trying to find himself.  This journey will make you laugh and cry.  After all, who doesn’t remember the awkwardness and passion  of your first true love.  Kudos to the author for creating a character that you will fall in love.  For creating a character that remains true to his convictions even as everything around him changes and life is flying by at a hundred miles an hour.  I adored this read and highly recommend it.  I can’t wait to read more from this extremely talented author.

5 out of 5 stars.

EXCERPTS 

 

EXCERTS FROM OBSESSION

 

‘What’s your first name, Sir?’ I asked.

He looked at me and smiled.

‘It’s Jacques,’ he said in that accent of his.

‘Jacques,’ I repeated.

‘I hope you don’t mind me asking sir, but do you have any children?’

 

‘Well, there is nothing for me back in London so I thought maybe I’d start a new life here in Australia, you know, make a fresh start and all that jazz.’

My heartbeat was racing, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. ‘Are you serious?’ I asked him, horrified.

‘Yes.’

‘Jared you’re a fucking idiot.’ That’s all I could say.

‘Excuse me?’ he replied, completely flabbergasted.

‘Sorry, but you are, you gave up a perfectly good life in London for what? Why, Jared, why would you do something like that?’

 

‘What ze fuck are you doing, Rick?’ he asked me, obviously shocked.

‘I’m sorry, I really am. I don’t know what came over me,’ I said as I leant forward and kissed him again.

 

‘I’ve been wanting to this body for the past five years and now I finally get the chance.’ I started sucking again.

‘You know you were right about one zing.’

‘What’s that?’

‘You definitely can give a better blow job ‘zan my wife,’ he said as I placed his cock in my mouth and started sucking again. ‘Now I know what you’ve really been doing all ‘zose times you missed class,’ he continued.

 

‘Hey Kyle,’ I heard one of them ask. It was Josh’s voice,

‘Yeah?’ replied Kyle.

‘Do you reckon Rick’s gay?’

I froze as I sat there with my pants still down to my ankles listening to what they were saying. I suddenly looked down and realised I had left my bag on the seat outside. My heart sunk.

‘What?’ I heard Kyle reply.

‘Why would you say something like that?’

‘Well, just something I saw the other day at camp, that’s all,’ Josh said, as the two of them continued to urinate at the urinal.

‘What did you see?’

‘Well, while we were all in the main hall playing pool, I walked outside to go and use the toilets. I looked over and saw, Rick looking through the door to the bathroom in the cabin.’

‘So?’ Kyle replied as I heard him zip up his pants and flush the urinal.

‘He had his pants down to his ankles and he was jerking off.’ Josh finished and he, too, zipped up his pants and flushed the urinal.

AUTHOR BIO

 am an indie author from Melbourne, Australia. I never had a desire to be a writer, but after going through a major body transformation in late 2012 I decided to write an Autobiography about my struggles with bullying, self-esteem, and body image. After sharing my experiences with the world I set out on a journey and became a qualified Personal Trainer. After losing 35kgs I had a passion and thrive to help others achieve, it was then that I decided to write a book.

After writing my Autobiography One Step Further I had an idea for a story and set out on a difficult and daunting task to write my first novel Obsession which is part of the Obsession Series. I am currently in the process of writing the next 2 books in the trilogy Temptation (a prequel to Obsession) and the final installment Resignation.

In the very little spare time that I do have, when I am not writing, I work a regular Full Time job in retail. I’m also a Personal Trainer and motivational speaker, helping others reach their weight loss goals and defeat their personal and difficult struggles. I come from a European background and I am the oldest of three brothers.
