What it’s about
She’s going to break all of his rules…
Tech Sergeant John O’Donnell was never fond of his hometown. Too many reminders of poverty, his rocky family life, and the girl he was never allowed to have. Now he has exactly two weeks to sort out his mother's finances before he heads back overseas. Two weeks that he's determined to spend as far from his best friend’s little sister as possible.
Alea Heling has a naughty streak a mile wide. Sweet and simple? Boring. She’s been craving a bad boy like John since their wild days together in high school, and this time, she’s not taking no for an answer. But with every panty-meltingly hot encounter, Alea forgets one hard, cold reality—this soldier won't let a fortnight turn into forever...and forever might be exactly what they both need.

Two Week Seduction is about an attraction that has been on hold for 10 years. John took off for the Air Force along with Sam, his best friend, who also happens to be Alea’s older protective brother. Before John and Sam joined the Air Force, Sam noticed John’s and Alea’s attraction. He had warned John to stay away from Alea, who at that time was only 16 years old and much too young for any relationship. While John was in the Air Force, he never forgot Alea and would fantasize about her all the time. Alea also held onto to her feelings for John while he was away. She had many day dreams of hooking up with John and she could hardly wait until the day he would finally come home.
It’s been 10 years and John is coming home on leave for 2 weeks. Alea is helping John’s mother plan his welcome home surprise party. She wants to make sure that she is there for his arrival. John, on the other hand, just wants to stay away from Alea because he feels he is not good enough for her. Well, Alea pulls out all the stops. She knows that John is attracted to her. She’s not going to stop until she’s had John hard and fast, wearing nothing but his boots.
I absolutely LOVED both Alea and John. They were perfect for each other and Alea knew it way back when she was just a teenager. John, on the other hand, had always thought that she was too good for the likes of him. She came from money after all, while his family just barely scraped by. It was wonderful experiencing the chemistry between these two. I also enjoyed reading how much John struggled with his true feelings for Alea. Another plus for this read was that there was plenty of humor added. The banter between them throughout was hysterical to read, I loved every moment.
The heat level was VERY high. OH YEAH! Alea did get to have John hard and fast with him wearing only his boots. As a matter of fact, she had him in all sorts of positions as this story continued. These scenes SCORCHED the pages and had me just as turned on as they were while reading them.
The one thing that bugged me a bit was the ending. I felt it should have continued on just a bit longer and once again, no epilogue! I have to add there is no need to fear, Two Week Seduction does end on a happy note, I just wanted more.
Overall, this was a fun sizzling read with great characters and a really good story line to boot. I most DEFINITELY plan on reading more of Kathy Lyon’s books in the future.
