Temptation Trials Part I
B. Truly
Publication date: June 3rd 2017
Genres: Adult, Dystopian, Post-Apocalyptic, Romance

Will you be Tempted? Will Love save your Soul?

One nation under his reign.

Cardinal sins of man caused humanity to pay the price. Cali Nasser grew up in a world succeeding World War III. The aftermath forced the world dictatorship that she must now live in. A new Regime arose from the ashes. They demanded obedience and cooperation from every citizen, even in matters of the heart.

One domain … One accord … One nation. That is the moral code. In Cali’s eyes, it all revolves around a twisted plot for control.

It used to sicken Cali how people would allow the Regime to test their love through the Temptation Trials. That is, until she met Kincade. Cali’s entire point of view changes when she falls for him. She struggles with herself, debating if she should challenge the government’s law of arranged marriage.

Cali’s childhood friend, Stefani, always kept a positive perspective about their lives until she was threatened with the same dilemma, at odds over the man she loves.

Now Cali and Stefani face a desperate choice—submit to the Regime’s will, or fight for what they value most—love. Although lust, mistaken for love, could lead to damnation. Do they give up on love or sign up for the Temptation Trials, a reality TV show where every temptation is laid before them?

The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Can love save their souls?

Rated Mature 18 +

Adult, Dystopian Romance with sensuality and sexual content.

My Review:

I’m reviewing the Temptation Trials by B Truly. Here are my thoughts:

^^ For their love to survive, Cali and Stefani, and their boyfriends, must sign up for the Temptation Trials, a reality TV show where every temptation is laid before them. If they don’t take this route, however, it’s fine. It just means they’ll just have to submit to the Regime’s will that rules all matters, including those of the heart, and the goverment will assign them a partner for life when they turn 21 years of age. When you’ve already found your true love, which choice would you prefer?

^^ This adult dystopian romance has a really great premise and I thoroughly enjoyed this stepping into the main characters shoes and seeing what this world threw at them. And I can tell you, it wasn’t as easy as they thought it would be, they were really pushed to their limits. Just imagine how it would feel to be forced to enter a reality TV show in order to prove your love.

^^ Having this set after World War III under a dictatorship, where control is their number one priority – especially over love – made this a real treat for me. This is just the sort of story I like to get my teeth stuck into.

^^ Each character has their own point of view in 1st person, and there are two main couples in this story. When they get to the island all the men are separated from the women and the fun (for the reader) begins. I found it to be a little on the slow side to begin with, but once you get to the action, you’ll not be able to stop reading until it’s finished!

^^ I enjoyed reading about the world B. Truly created for these characters. There’s love triangles, temptations galore and even an underground group of resistance fighters opposing the government regime. Very exciting.

^^ But when the show has been on for several seasons and no one has passed the trials yet, what chance have they got? Or is there something else going on?

^^ This reminded me of a mix of books, The Handmaids Tale, The Hunger Games and even a tad of Battle Royale, only a much sexier version.

^^ There are a few brilliant surprises along the way, but what an ending! Nooooooo! Don’t make me wait for another book! Now I have to add the next book to my TBR list, because I’ve got to know how it continues…

Overall: An entertaining, deliciously sexy read set in a controlling dystopian world I just loved.
