Temptation’s Inferno, by Kat Mizera, is one of the hottest books I have ever read. That being said, it also has an extremely uplifting and positive message that was beautiful enough to bring me to tears.
Jamie Teller has had a rotten year, and it’s about to get worse as he was just traded to a new hockey team, far away from his friends and support system. With just a few days before his move, Jamie happens into a threesome with his roommate Viggo and his new wife. While Jamie is no stranger to this type of encounter, for the first time ever, he finds himself attracted to a man.
Viggo, openly bisexual and very comfortable in his own skin, finds himself married to a childhood friend after she becomes pregnant after their brief encounter. While Viggo is willing to do anything to make his new marriage work and be a great father, his wife is not the person he thought she was. On top of that, Viggo finds himself having feelings for the man he only thought of as a roommate until recently.
With new and confusing feelings plaguing him, Jamie finds himself thousands of miles from those he cares about trying to find his way on a new team. Coming to terms with his feelings for Viggo is not something that comes easy for Jamie. When tragedy strikes, however, Jamie realizes who he can truly count on and love is love regardless if that love is for a man or a woman.
Kat Mizera wrote some scorching hot scenes between Jamie and Viggo. However, these characters also have extreme depth to them. It is easy to get caught up in the struggle Jamie feels coming to terms with the fact that he finds himself in love with a man for the first time in his life. Readers also feel the frustrations Viggo faces waiting for Jamie to come to terms with his sexuality.
The true gem that this book is, however, comes to life when Jamie is outed in a tragic way. It is simply beautiful watching his old team-mates and friends rally around him as he faces his new reality. While the cause is nothing you ever want to see happen to someone, the result is something I wish I could see happening in real life.
Temptation’s Inferno is simply an amazing read. It’s so much more than a hockey romance. I also can’t wait to see where Kat takes us with the next book in the series.
About the Book:
Jamie Teller has had a rough year. After being blackmailed by a teammate, weathering a sex scandal, and being traded to a team on the other side of the continent, he’s overwhelmed and looking for a distraction. A sexy threesome with his burly roommate and his wife wasn’t expected–neither is his sudden attraction to a guy.
Viggo Sjoberg has been openly bisexual since he was 17, but always assumed he would settle down with a woman. When he’s surprised with news he has a child from a past fling, he jumps headfirst into marriage and fatherhood, but his new wife isn’t what she appeared to be. Adding to Viggo’s confusion are the feelings aroused by his seemingly straight roommate, Jamie.
When Jamie moves thousands of miles away, Viggo tells himself it’s over. Until a life-changing event puts the two men on a collision course. Suddenly, Jamie needs Viggo—badly—and Viggo is prepared to do whatever it takes to help. Even if it means he has to give up everything he always thought he wanted.
THIS BOOK IS A STANDALONE.
About the Author:
Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.
Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.
Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…
