Rachel Dennehy had a crazy thought. If she could just start over somewhere else, she could forget about her sad and tragic past and all the ghosts that chased her. When an email landed in her inbox, to tutor a difficult student whose father just happened to be the CEO of one of the biggest companies in the nation, the apple was a bit too enticing for Rachel to refuse. She moves from Texas to Beverly Hills, where she is tasked with turning around her wealthy pupil’s bad attitude. It is a bad attitude that stems almost entirely from his parents’ ugly divorce and even uglier custody battle.

That her new boss Andrew, or Drew, Fullerton is one of the handsomest and most eligible bachelors in the world means nothing to Rachel. She has absolutely no plans to ever marry or have kids of her own. Her priority is teaching nine-year-old Jonathan, who needs her guidance and her direction and... most importantly... her friendship.

Drew’s brother, Alex, however, assumes otherwise. He basically accuses her of being a gold-digging opportunist upon their first meeting. This sets the two immediately at odds, though they both have young Jonathan’s best interest at heart. Alex believes that Rachel is a “ringer,” a wholesome alternative to edge Jonathan’s socialite mother out of the running for custody, since she left Drew after her own salacious affair with a younger man. He wastes no time in telling Rachel that as long as she stays in her job, she will keep Jonathan from his real mother, and that is the driving force behind Drew's interest.

Unfortunately the more he tries to warn her away from Drew, the closer he ultimately propels her toward her charming boss. Drew never questions her motivation or her presence because Jonathan thrives under her tutelage, and Drew is beguiled by her no-nonsense attitude that challenges him from the start.

Rachel navigates these choppy waters solely to protect Jonathan. She sees the adults in the family as self-serving; most of whom are far more interested in hurting each other than taking care of this fragile, vulnerable boy. Her heart traps her into this sticky web, despite her own history of loss and betrayal. How long will she last? More importantly, what will she be required to give to save these Fullerton men who continually tug her in three different directions?

The saga begins with the first book, titled “Enticed,” due to release in early 2014. Author Ginger Voight returns to the dream-making landscape of Los Angeles, in a new tale that throws back the curtain on the dangerous power, appeal and excess of the privileged. Only by the time this tale is done, one principle character will pay the ultimate price as they all race toward that elusive happily ever after.




My Review
*****5 -Angst filled & Sexy as sin- Stars
~This review contains minor spoilers~
~I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review~


You certainly don't mind making a statement”
We weren't created to live small,” he responded with a confident smirk.
He truly was the master of his universe. He was a man without limitations thanks to his money and power.


That was flippin Ah-Mazing! It was like an adrenaline shot of angst straight to my heart with a heavy dose of deception and secrets layered with sexiness and insecurities in the adults all surrounding a sweet, kind, lost little boy. This was the first book I've ever read of Ginger Voight's, I've got all three of her Groupie books sitting on my kindle but like so many of my books they got lost somewhere in my TBR pile......That will be changing post-haste 'cause now I'm wondering what the hell I was waiting for?! This woman rocked my world with this book.


My entire life changed with an e-mail...

Maybe I was ready for a change... a really, really big one...

For once, though I had no reason whatsoever to trust good fortune, I'd give fate the benefit of the doubt.


Rachel Dennehy, seventh grade school teacher, just goes through the motions in life. Events from a tragic past has left her a lonely, emotionally scarred woman looking to possibly start over when one single email changes her life...A job offer from a well known CEO of one of the nations largest companies, Andrew Fullerton.


He had the whole world at his tiny fingertips and yet he still ached with an unfulfilled yearning. It just proved, once again, money could not fill the void of love and emotion security. The self-described prison in which he lived was just a helluva lot nicer.


She accepts the job hoping a change of scenery will turn her life around. So she moves from Texas to California to take on the position of home school teacher to Drew's son Jonathan. Drew wants her to not only teach his nine year old son, who has been kicked out of various private schools, but help bring his behavior under control. As a result of his parents bitter divorce & custody battle, Jonathan is acting out in a big way. It doesn't take Rachel long to realize how lost and lonely he is, she wants nothing more than to gain his trust and help him. What she wasn't prepared for was Drew Fullerton himself.


If I thought I was fully prepared to meet Drew Fullerton face to face, I was sorely mistaken. The minute his six-foot-two frame entered the magnificent dining room, he sucked the air right out of the joint with an aura so powerful I immediately felt a part of me wilt in response. I had never had this kind of reaction to anyone before...

Drew is definitely the master of his universe, a power to be reckoned with, and she can't deny his sex appeal. Lucky for her, she has no interest in getting involved with anyone let alone her boss, and she is sooo far from his normal type of woman it's not even funny, so she vows to not let him affect her.....good luck with that. She never expected that moving to the Fullerton estate would throw her head-first into a family war. If the nasty custody battle tearing Jonathan in two wasn't bad enough, she also has to contend with Drew's brother Alex who has her pegged as a gold-digging whore right from the start.


You might want to think carefully about the sides you choose, sweetheart. No amount of money can make up for your soul.”
My soul's just fine, Mr. Fullerton. That little boy you love so much? He's scared to death to go with his mother alone. And his feeling are the only ones that matter here. He needs adults who care for his welfare, not a bunch of bratty children fighting over one favorite toy.”
You think you know, but you know nothing.”
I know I'm not some dumb hick you can roll over just because your brother's out of town. Think about that next time you want to pull a stunt like this.”

And just when she thinks her hands are full enough, Drew's seductive charm starts to wear on her resolve. But will she survive the fallout when the Fullerton family skeletons come plowing out of the closet and straight into her? From start to finish this was one crazy, intense, emotional, smack you in the face with some dark and nasty secrets, thrill ride & that ending?! It's a very good thing we don't have too long to wait for the next book!!!

Tell me, Rachel, do you long to be held? To be kissed?” He bent his head toward me and whispered, “To be taken?”....
.“Tell me you want me, Rachel.”
Drew...”
Tell me,” he begged in a hoarse whisper as his hands slid down the arch of my back and over the curve of my hip.
My hands braced on his chest, but instead of pushing myself away, my palms delighted in how solid and real he felt. It sent a jolt through my entire body. “I don't want you,” I eked out in a pitiful whisper.
Liar” 


  





Ginger Voight is prolific author, freelance writer and optioned screenwriter. Her fiction is diverse, with novels like the edgy, coming-of-age drama DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS, and the fun family adventure for kids of all ages, COMIC SQUAD.
Having grown up reading different authors like Danielle Steel and Stephen King, Ginger has always been drawn more to story than to genre. This shows up in her various stories. Titles such as MY IMMORTAL and TASTE OF BLOOD are a delicious, heady mix of horror, suspense, and romance.
Genre romance, however, has held a special place in her heart, ever since she read her first Harlequin novel when she was only eleven. As a result, Ginger is making a name for herself writing romances of her own, starring women who look more like the average American woman rather than those traditionally represented in the size-biased American media. Her Rubenesque romances were created especially for those heroines with fuller figures, who can still get the man of their dreams if only they believe they can. Such titles include UNDER TEXAS SKIES, LOVE PLUS ONE, THE GROUPIE TRILOGY, THE FIERCE TRILOGY and PICTURE POSTCARDS.
Ginger was included in the best-selling book by Smith Magazine NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS PLANNING, featuring her six-word memoir.
