Seductive Kiss is part of Francis Ray's Grayson Friends series. The author does such a great job on background information that readers do not need to read a previous book in order to enjoy this one. I rated this as a 3.5 because the others in this series are just to die for and I found that while I enjoyed SK, not as much as the others.
Alex is an awesome hero, he has been friends with the heroine much of their lives due to her friendship with his sister. It isn’t until they spend time together at a wedding that Dianna realizes she is lusting after her good friend.
Dianna annoyed me. She was very naive when it came to her role in her family's business and despite sound advice from Alex, allows herself to be in a position that literally leaves her broken. Dependable as always Alex is there to help with the pieces and support whatever direction she chooses. Dianna however wants to do things her way and almost puts her relationship with Alex on hold for something as small as her pride. Despite this quirk in the heroine’s personality I still read with greed, smiled and groaned throughout the book because Ray has a way of making you fall for her characters and root for them through the upheavals of a new relationship.
YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON FRIENDS
Dianna Harrington is known throughout the world as "The Face"-the stunningly beautiful spokesmodel for her family's fashion empire. She could probably have her pick of any man she wants. But Dianna would rather kick back and relax with a good friend-namely Alex Stewart, who she's known, and harbored a crush on, her whole life...
BUT CAN YOU TRUST YOUR HEART?
Ever since they were kids, Alex has been Dianna's protector and pal, a shoulder to cry on. But as the brother of her best friend, Alex always seemed untouchable. Now a handsome, successful New York lawyer, Alex never realized how lonely Dianna's life has been-or how innocent she is in the ways of love. Alex wants more than anything to reach out to her, to heal her heart. But is his desire worth the risk? After a lifetime of longing building up between them, somethings gotta give. Maybe all it takes is just one kiss...
