Review: Temptation by Karen Ann Hopkins

Posted August 6, 2012 by Christy / 0 Comments

Format: E-ARC from Netgalley Pages: 383 Publisher: Harlequin Teen Buy this Book: Amazon From Goodreads: Your heart misleads you. That’s what my friends and family say. But I love Noah. And he loves me. We met and fell in love in the sleepy farming community of Meadowview, while we rode our horses together through the grassy fields and in those moments in each other’s arms. It should be ROSE & NOAH forever, easy. But it won’t be. Because he’s Amish. And I’m not. Review: When I first started reading Temptation I honestly didn’t know what to expect, I had never read a book with Amish people in it before and really didn’t know anything about them, but I’m happy to […]
