Last night I made out with a gorgeous, funny, quirky older woman. Today I learned she’s the new executive chef at my restaurant. AKA my new boss.

Yep, that’s the hot mess I’m in at the moment.
But the chemistry between Natalie and me is even hotter.
The problem? She’s a single mom focused on helping her little girl adjust to life in the big city. Dating right now—especially a co-worker—is asking for trouble.
So, what’s my next move? Seduce the hell out of the woman, of course.

I may still technically be hanging onto my V Card, but I know how to drive a woman wild in bed.
Even more importantly, I know I’m the kind of man Nat’s looking for. I love hard, keep my promises, and I’ll put her and her daughter first.

And then I learn the real reason she’s been holding me at a distance…

Most men would be scared away. Me?
I’m even more determined to prove I can make this wounded woman’s dreams come true.

Seduced is the third book in the V Card Diaries series by Lili Valente. You can read each book as standalone but I recommend reading the series since they are all so much fun. I have been waiting for Cameron’s story and the wait was totally worth it.
It all started with chocolate covered crickets…
Cameron knew the woman across the table was different. She was beautiful, witty, and mysterious. And she didn’t want to be his friend. That was clear when she kissed him. It was perfect. She was perfect. They make plans for a first date. Cameron is walking on the air the next morning on his way to work then he sees her. In the kitchen of Crave as the new owner and executive chef. And her number one rule… Zero-fraternization between employees. I guess it was time to up his seduction game. Except, this is no game, he knows she is the one he has been waiting for. But, what will happen when she finds out about his V status?
Natalie wasn’t looking for romance. She was new to New York, a single mom, and the new owner of Crave. She didn’t have time for a man especially one ten years younger. He definitely couldn’t be ready for the whole package. He was a hot chef in his twenties in NY. He probably just wanted in her pants and now as her new boss, he would just walk away. Except, he doesn’t. He is a surprise she didn’t expect and that makes him trouble.
I ♥️ Cam and Natalie!! And of course Crissy, that kid is adorable. This story is not only sexy AF but sweet and funny too! It’s also full of heat, friendships, and dinosaurs. I knew Cam was a sweetheart but I absolutely love his sexy side too. Hot damn. Natalie is a badass in and out of the kitchen. She is also a kickass mom and I loved meeting her and all of her side. And, Crissy, this kid is the best. So much fun and brave. I can’t wait to see them again in Sparked!
“You’re cocky.”
“Only when it comes to food.”
“I think you broke my vagina, and all my clothes are still on,” I say, fumbling for the buttons behind my neck.
“Somebody help! Mommy’s being attacked by a vampire!”

Seduced is the third book in the V Card Diaries series by Lili Valente. I am loving this series so much! Lili is giving us such fun characters with so much heart and they are making me swoon and laugh out loud. Oh Cameron, I knew I was going to freaking love you! You might be young, but you have your life together. You know what you want to do with your life, you know how to treat a woman and you know how to be a great friend. And you are sexy and fun and smart. Natalie is a business owner, chef and mother. She wasn’t expecting to meet a young, charming man who she connected with. And then when he turns out to work for her, she can’t go there. But really, she can and she does! I love that she is older and he’s the virgin. And just because he is, doesn’t mean he doesn’t know how to please her. I loved watching their love grow and how mature they are. I loved the way Cam is with Crissy, her daughter (swoon). I just loved everything about it. It made me laugh, cry, get hot and bothered and just smile. Everything I want from a romance!
