The ace photographer and the supermodel, they should have been a match made in heaven. Instead, they fought like the demons of hell.
Complicated, surly, and sexy, Manav Apte was probably the only photographer who resented his muse. From the day he’d seen her, there had been no other. Unfortunately, she was the one woman he could never have.
Passionate, talented, and gorgeous, Diana Severes refused to give the temperamental ass behind the camera the satisfaction of knowing he got under her skin. It was, however, impossible not to notice him or his glowering disapproval that trailed her everywhere she went.
Their dislike and distrust of each other is legendary in the fashion industry and yet, the sparks that fly when they come together for work are enough to light the sets on fire.
Will the Golden Girl of India’s fashion scene be able to see beyond his hatred to the love he’s desperately trying to mask? And will the country’s most talented photographer realise that his true talent lies not in what he views through his lens but what he sees through the filter of his heart?
My Review of Twilight’s Temptation
Twilight’s Temptation follows the drama-filled and heartwarming Midnight’s Star where we oohed and aahed over Dev and Avni’s instant attraction to each other.
On the other hand, Diana and Manav’s relationship can only be called explosive. They’re fiercely attracted to each other yet they stay apart for much of the story. Theirs is a story of much pain, too many misunderstandings, and plenty of ego trips.
The author has a humorous and sassy style of writing that I deeply enjoy. It feels contemporary and real. I could be reading about the girl and guy next door!
Manav’s painful past is carefully picked apart layer by layer until we understand much of what drives him. With his story, the author uncovers different personality types and family dynamics. The showdown between two family members at the end had me fearing the worst.
Diana could easily be the woman of my dreams – smart, diplomatic, and successful. She navigates social minefields with practiced ease. She’s in full control of her life, with the exception of her heartstrings. She’s an example of why we shouldn’t judge only by looks.
Twilight’s Temptation is a bittersweet story of two people deeply in love yet failing to find a middle ground because of their differences. Yet, as a reader, I held on to hope until the end.
Was I rewarded or disappointed? Why don’t you read the book to find out?
I’m sure you won’t be able to put it down because you’ll be pulled into the drama of it all.
