Welcome to the Blog tour for Lethal Temptations (Tempted #5) by Janine Infante Bosco hosted by Indie Sage PR ❤
Ever since I first read Uncontrollable Temptations (Tempted #3), I have been DYING to read about Leather and Lace! And I FINALLY GOT THEM BOTH IN MY HANDS and I adored it!
And if you have been following this series like I have, you would have been as excited as I am
My name is Blackie, I’m the vice president of the Satan’s Knights MC and I’m an addict.
I’ve been trading one addiction for another for as long as I can remember.
I make no apologies for my addictions, nor do I try to hide them.
Until my latest addiction threatens to destroy not just me but her.
For the first time I want to fight the need and not gravitate towards it. I try to deny it and not succumb to it but I’m a prisoner to her purity.
I’m Satan’s soldier, a demon dressed in leather.
She’s an angel, innocent and full of light, she’s my lace.
A temptation so lethal neither of us may survive but, every demon craves an angel.
Guide me to the light.
Take me from the dark.
Give me back my life.
Let me share yours.
They are the selfish words of an addict and they are my truth.
My name is Lacey Parrish and I have a secret, one I’ve tried to deny for a long time, one I’ve tried to spare the world from.
I am a manic-depressive.
Just like my dad.
Some days I’m high on life.
Most days I try to escape it.
People think they know me, they think they see me but the truth is no one knows who I really am. No one sees the real me… a broken girl with a mind that betrays her.
He’s my savior, the man who silences my maker.
He’s my knight in shining armor, the man who puts my life before his.
He’s my leather and I’m his lace.
Two broken souls that have the power to heal one another.
This is our story, an unapologetic tale full of temptations.
A love story called Leather and Lace.
Disclaimer: This the fifth book in the Tempted Series but can be read as a standalone.
WARNING: This book contains themes of drug abuse and mental illness that could be a trigger for some. Proceed with caution.
Leather and Lace.
Ever since I heard (read!) these words from the mouth of Blackie in Uncontrollable Temptations, I have been waiting to get my hands on his story – and I JUST KNEW that it would be explosive – but I didn’t know that it would also break my heart.
While this is a standalone book – it takes almost after Uncontrollable Temptations and side by side during the Reckless Temptations – FYI.
Blackie is the VP of Satan’s Knights MC – and the best of the President, Jack Parish. He has been by Jack’s side through all the rough tumbles the MC faced, but he also lost enough for him to slowly side down the path of addiction – be it alcohol or heroin.
Lacey Parish, on the other hand, is a woman battling demons – demons that she has seen her father battle – but has never really understood in herself. She fell for Blackie, when she was a teenager, and even though he was happily married at that time, kept a torch lit for him.
Yes, I have purposefully made sure that I don’t give away a lot of the plot – it’s mostly because me even giving you the barest hint gives away the whole freaking plot.
The lot is quite simple – a girl meets an older man, falls for him – the man falls back, but believes that doing anything will jeopardize his relationship not only with his best friend but also with his club.
Yes, the plot is simple – but the emotions, the emotions felt, definitely aren’t!
This book is raw – everything in it – from the drug abuse to the mental illness, to the old/young pairing is handled with utmost honesty and rawness that literally takes your breath away and you just can’t help but feel and admire the inner strength of the characters.
And the wait for Leather and Lace was over. And it was pure perfection.
She would be my death. But I’d remember her in the depths of hell. The innocent girl with the sad eyes that begged me to take her pain away.

A LETTER FROM THE AUTHOR
Blackie and Lacey’s love is not an easy story. It’s not about fluff and if you’re looking to escape the reality of the world, this book is not for you. Lethal Temptations is true to its title and while there is a love story between the hero and heroine there is an individual story being told about each character.
Blackie is a drug addict.
Lacey is mentally ill.
They each suffer with the demons that haunt them.
Both issues are very much alive in our world and most of us will experience the torment of addiction and, or, mental illness. If not in ourselves than possibly through the people we love.
The smiling person beside you who appears perfect may be suffering in silence, afraid of what society will say or more than that, afraid of admitting their truth.
If you or someone you love suffers from addiction or mental illness, it’s never too late to find your voice and seek help.
My wish for those in need is that they find hope within the pages of Lethal Temptations because, you’re temptations are only lethal if you allow them to be.
Your voice is your weapon against the things that drag you down.
May is mental health awareness month, let’s turn society around and make it our bitch and save the fractured souls that struggle on a daily basis.
Below you will find links on both addiction and mental health.
Thank you for reading,
The Keith Milano Memorial Fund was established to help raise awareness about the devastating and deadly disease that is mental illness. Keith’s spirit and laughter is kept alive through our efforts to increase awareness about mental illness and to raise money for education and imperative research. Keith often struggled with society’s perception of mental illness. Our hope is that by having the strength to say that Keith was “Bipolar” we can strip away the stigma and help others to be more open about their disease.
