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.

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.
I'm not really sure how to explain how I feel after reading Enticed by Ginger Voight. I love her writing--it makes you sit up and take notice. She has a way of pulling out emotions and making you think.
But the hero ???? of the story, Drew Fullerton, was someone who not only confused me, but was someone I didn't really like.
Let me back up a bit...
Rachel Dennehy is a secondary teacher in a small town located in Texas. She receives a strange email from a rather prominent billionaire, Drew Fullerton. Drew is looking for someone to home school his troubled son. Since his parents divorce, Jonathan has been acting out and Mr. Fullerton is at a loss on how to reach out to him.
Rachel has a mysterious past that the reader is not privy to at this point. But she is looking for a fresh start and decides to take this opportunity. It involves a lot of money and her relocating to Los Angeles.
Rachel is described as a passionate teacher with plain looks and a fuller figure--someone not used to the limelight and has a deep moral code. She loves the simple things in life. But upon her arrival at the Fullerton mansion, her world is turned upside down. She struggles to keep the boundaries clearly defined with Drew Fullerton. She is keenly aware she is not the type of woman Drew Fullerton gets involved with, sexually, but that doesn't stop Rachel from feeling the strong connection to the very handsome man.
However strong the attraction is, Rachel fights it. And she puts Jonathon first in her decisions. He has already been disappointed by the adults in his life.
Drew Fullerton comes across as very driven. And although he loves his son, his company seems to come first. He has said he does whatever it takes to win. He plays dirty. And he wants his son. This is the part of the story that made it difficult to like Drew. He seemed to view "winning" Rachel as some kind of competition. That didn't go over very well with me. At. All. But as I know Ginger is wont to do with her stories, I am sure she has some twists planned along the way.
Drew's ex-wife, Elise, and Drew's brother, Alex, are just as determined to get Jonathan away from Drew's influence. Alex confronts Rachel as tries to get her to return to Texas. He goes further and says that Drew is not the man he seems. The animosity between the siblings is glaringly obvious.
And poor Jonathan is always caught in the middle.
But a terrible secret is revealed at the climactic end--and the truth pushes Rachel right out of Drew's arms. No longer able to tell his lies from the truth, Rachel leaves Los Angeles and ends up breaking her promise to Jonathan.
ARGH! Cliffies. As great as they are at getting the reader to continue the story, they still make me want to throw my kindle across the room.
At least, with this trilogy, the wait won't be too long. Entangled was released January 28th. Thank God.
