Los Angeles, California – Present Day

Adelaide Song and Michael Reynolds have been assigned the task of working together on a fashion show that will display the designs of her fledging company. When Adelaide was younger, she had a huge crush on Michael, but he never looked her way. Now that they're working closely together, the old feelings resurface for her, even though he has not given her any signs that he's interested. But after a few meetings, something clicks between them. Michael indicates that he is open to making love to her, though he can't promise her anything beyond a few nights of pleasure. Should Adelaide take what he's offering—or hold out for a declaration of love?

Michael is divorced and what happened during his failed marriage has left him ready to accept that he's not good marriage material. He respects Adelaide and her family and doesn't want to do anything to disrupt the longtime ties between his family and hers. Yet, he soon discovers that Adelaide is a beautiful and desirable woman—and one that he wants. Adelaide is hesitant at first about giving in to Michael. He's protective of her reputation (the family is well known in LA), so if anyone gets wind of their affair, including her family, there would be a huge scandal. Do they dare take the risk to finally experience the passion that sizzles between them?

There is a lot of back and forth between Adelaide and Michael in SECRET CRUSH SEDUCTION. After all, he wants her, but he doesn't want her to think there's a future between them. Is he only thinking of himself when he wants her in his bed? It isn't that Michael is a callous person because there is a reason that he feels why he can't promise her a future, one that I won't reveal to the reader for it might be a spoiler. But is he only thinking of himself by not letting Adelaide decide for herself? Is he cutting off happiness—and love—for what he feels is the right thing to do?

Passion fills the pages in SECRET CRUSH SEDUCTION by Jayci Lee, the second book in The Heirs of Hansol series. Even if you haven't read the first book, TEMPORARY WIFE TEMPTATION, about Adelaide's brother, you can easily read this tale as a standalone. The red-hot desire between Adelaide and Michael stand out in SECRET CRUSH SEDUCTION as they find their attraction nearly insatiable. Don't miss this riveting tale.
