DRIVEN TO TEMPTATION by Melia Alexander
A Driven to Love Story
Aidan Ross might be an engineering genius, but people skills? Not this soldier’s forte. Thankfully, a trusted friend is accompanying him to a make-or-break tradeshow…but then a bubbly redhead hops into his truck, claiming to be his new road trip buddy. She’s a gorgeous distraction he can’t afford. Or ignore.
Delaney Harper comes from a family of engineers—male engineers. With several impressive projects under her belt, she’s on a mission to prove she can hang with the big boys, too. But cracking the sexy, closed-off CEO is tougher than she expects…and hotter than she could have imagined.
With the tempting woman disrupting his carefully planned schedule, Aidan can’t focus on the road, much less their upcoming presentation. The future of his company is riding on this trip, and if they’re to land a huge account, he has to keep his head—and his heart—in the game…
A romance involving two engineers… you know it peaked my interest. The field of engineering is definitely male dominated so any female engineer is going to be a strong character. She has to be in order to make it in this field. I know from personal experience the difficulties that are faced and I thought Melia Alexander did an excellent job portraying this.
Delaney is a strong heroine who jumps at the chance to show her boss what she is capable of. Aidan is the founder and CEO of the company she works for and like most engineers, his people skills are rather lacking. Delaney is glad to step in and help him out with a deal that he needs to make. Aidan just needs to remember to not drool over his hot employee in the process.
Delaney and Aidan had such great chemistry. It was a delight to read their story. I look forward to more from Ms. Alexander.

Melia Alexander is the author of sassy, sexy, fun contemporary romances, but is also fortunate to spend her week days at The Male Observation Lab (a.k.a. her job at a construction company) where she gets to observe guys in their natural habitat. Though they often behave like typical alpha males, in many instances she’s seen through their personas to the heart of who they really are – the heroes of their own stories. A native of Guam, Melia traded in warm, tropical breezes for the rainy Pacific Northwest. She’s an avid reader who also loves romantic comedies – preferably with a glass of CabSauv and a box of chocolates nearby. In her free time, she’s busy conquering her CrossFit fears: ring dips, muscle snatches, and the dreaded 800 meter run. Her family appreciates her attempts at cooking and cleaning, although she spends it mostly daydreaming about her characters, which sometimes results in a burnt meal and a half-cleaned house.
