Babette Robinson has a problem with commitment. It doesn’t matter if it’s committing to one hair color, job, or man, she just doesn’t commit. After leaving yet another job, Babette decides to start her own business. She’s always had a talent for understanding people’s mannerisms and match making. So Babette decides to start a Love Doctor business where she helps put couples back together again after a break up. The business is doing great until a rich socialite named Kitty Carelle shows up needing Babette’s services.
Kitty is willing to pay Babette three times her normal fees if she could reconcile her relationship with a man named Jeff Eubanks. Babette has bills to pay and desperately needs this job but she has a conflict of interest. Jeff is Babette’s ex boyfriend, the one man she truly loved, the one who got away. How can Babette help Kitty get back together with Jeff when she still has feelings for him herself?
Babette decides to take the job, but she is worried her feelings for Jeff will cause problems. After arriving at the beach resort where Jeff lives, matters become even worse. Jeff has given Babette an ultimatum. If she can last one week without flirting with any guys, he will consider talking to Kitty. But if Babette even whistles at one man, then the deal is off. The reasoning behind this deal is that Jeff feels women can not commit to anything and if Babette, the ultimate non-committal person can commit, then there is hope for him and Kitty.
Will Babette make it through seven days of no flirting or will her close proximity to Jeff drive her truly insane with lust? Will Babette reconcile the relationship or will she steal Jeff for herself?
Flirting with Temptation is a romantic, funny, heart warming story by one of my favorite authors Kelley St. John. While the outcome of the story was kind of predictable, I still greatly enjoyed reading this contemporary romance. The side story of Babette’s grandmother searching for love again after losing her husband was very touching. Everything fit together nicely and I will definitely be on the look out for Kelley St. John’s next book. I highly recommend Flirting with Temptation to romance readers who enjoy a sweet romance that will make them smile.
