Kimball Lee has a direct and cut to the point type of writing style; she doesn't use "filler" sentences to get her descriptions across. I feel that this is the best approach to write a story meant to be short because you want to be able to squeeze your entire story into a set amount of pages. That being said however, sometimes I wish she would have elaborated more when it came to the paranormal and magical aspect in this book. (I honestly didn't realize this was meant to be a paranormal romance until I put together this post.) I like this type of writing but I can see why it would cause readers frustration... a type of balance needs to be practiced. Forgo details on things not so important but add in a bit more description with the crucial sections in the plot.
(PS: I would consider Temptation Road to be a novella series)
BEWARE for the dreaded cliff-hanger... it comes right when things start to get exciting. Needless to say, I was a bit bummed. It will however urge you to get the second book because you NEED to know what happens. So, great move Miss Lee... kudos to you!
I was a bit concerned I wouldn't enjoy this book because I saw so many reviews that stated this book was confusing or lacking something. I'm glad I chose to ignore those reviews and proceed to give it a go because I found it quite satisfying. I'm curious on if the second book will showcase the paranormal aspect a bit more, so I will be checking it out ASAP.
Side note: I don't feel that this cover really fits what this book is about. It does have some smokin' hot male specimens but doesn't have hardcore steamy scenes. If you're expecting in-your-face and down-and-dirty sex...you should look elsewhere.

Kimball Lee had break out success with Surrendering Charlotte Chronicles in the 2013 and hasn’t looked back. The topics of her novels and novella-series will vary, but her style of writing remains the same. Kimball doesn’t write 700 page books padded with useless words that take three pages to describe a doorknob. She does write funny, interesting, happy, sad, romantic, often titillating, and always thought provoking books that pack a lot good reading into just the right number of pages. Lee’s first novella, Legal Action, changed her life over night with more than 200,000 downloads in the first 90 days of publication. Kimball writes twelve to fifteen hours a day and she loves ALMOST every minute of it! Kimball Lee is represented by Joyce Holland at D4EO Literary Agency.
