REVIEW: Rayelle Keats and Barker Grant have been dancing around their feelings for each other for a year. Rayelle is under the impression that she is not good enough for Barker because of her poor and rather interesting background. Barker’s family is super rich and well-known, so Rayelle thinks Barker’s association with someone with her past will be harmful to his career and his reputation as a well-known journalist. Barker doesn’t care about any of those things. He wants Rayelle and intends to have her.  He pursues her relentlessly and shows her how good things can be between them despite her misgivings. Barker’s privileged upbringing is ever present in Rayelle mind so naturally, she resisted at first. But she soon realizes that when it comes to Barker Grant, her resistance is futile.

Because of her poor background, Rayelle is a young woman who doesn’t believe in her self-worth. Her unconventional upbringing gives her a jaded view of life.  But she still wants the things that others have. She has watched her friends find the loves of their lives. But Rayelle is convinced that no one could possibly love her with her background and give her the happily-ever-after she secretly desires.  As the saying goes, Barker Grant was born with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth. But he never let his vast wealth define who he is. He is a well-known journalist who believes in working hard for what he wants and not trade on his family’s name to get ahead.

SEDUCTIVE MOMENTS is a very good read. Ms. Washington does a great job as usual with her fascinating descriptive characters. Her attention to detail is one of the things that makes her stories a joy to read. You can image every nuance of the characters as you read the story. Each scene flows into the next with no lapse.  In this page-turner, Rayelle finally gets the love she deserves with Barker, a man who loves her despite her background. He has simply been biding his time until he can convince Rayelle that they belong together. Once their passion is released, there is no putting it back in the bottle. The secondary characters contributions are added validity to the main characters and the storyline.  Love this author’s writing style. You can always be assured that her stories will be well worth your time.

SEDUCTIVE MOMENTS a very romantic story from beginning to end. I recommend it for your reading pleasure.
