The Way You Tempt Me by Elle Wright

Elle Wright‘s new series Pure Talent hit center stage with its first book, The Way You Tempt Me.

Xavier Starks, heir to the Pure Talent Agency, thought he had his life all mapped out. He’d retired the games he used to play intent on settling down with Hollywood’s hottest actress and focusing on expanding his family’s business. Xavier traded playboy status to boss up and convince his father he had the level head, maturity, and responsibility to take a leadership role in the agency.

But when his fiancée breaks up with him publicly and it goes viral, Xavier’s carefully laid plans fall to piece. Suddenly, partner is off the table and he’s thrown into competition with Zara Reid, his childhood friend and his father’s mentee.

Zara has impeccable taste and incredible instincts. She’s a sports agent with a talent roster that’s no joke and her work ethic is what’s made her a star in her own right. Xavier isn’t the only one who has plans to take the agency to the next level, and she’s not about to let him get in her way.

Competition, however, can lead to sparks and when the heat is up, Zara and Xavier find that work isn’t the only thing on their minds. Elevating the game just may turn into love if these two are willing to drop their guard long enough to trust in how they feel.

The Way You Tempt Me will be available July 28 in print and e-book format.
