Audiobook Review: Temptation (The Mate Games, #4). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Temptation by K. Loraine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Temptation, thy name is Sunday Fallon, and I am done resisting. Once upon a time I’d been a priest, but she’d made a sinner of me and now I welcomed damnation.

She’d always been my destiny. The woman whose life was tied to mine. I just hadn’t planned on falling in love and being forced to choose between my vows and my soul. 

No matter how deep my connection to her ran, I had a greater purpose I was meant to serve. And now that she was carrying the Harbinger of the Apocalypse–the result of our passion–I had to get her away from the rest of them.

Her god of mischief.
Her devoted wolf.
Her dark prince.

She belongs to me…Her twisted captor.

If she’ll let me, I’ll keep her. Hide her from everyone and everything that means to destroy her. Stop what’s coming and make her mine forever. Because Sunday Fallon is more than temptation. She’s my new religion. 

I’ve made my choice. This time I will not falter. I will worship at her altar and forsake all others. No matter the consequence.

The seals are broken.

Armageddon is coming.

And I’m ready for War.


The four horsemenwomen!

The heroine: Sunday – she is a wolf shifter whose mother may or may not be the devil. She is pregnant and her baby may or may not be prophesied to be the bringer of the apocalypse. She doesn’t know which of her men is the father. She has been attacked by the Fae, the vampire council and more. Neither she nor her baby is safe.

The Heroes: Noah, Caleb, Kingston & Alek – Noah Blackthorne (a vampire prince who wants nothing more than to keep Sunday safe), Caleb Gallagher (a vampire and former Priest who is working for the archangel Gabriel and has known about the prophecy all along), Kingston Farrell (Sunday’s werewolf mate who is snarky and grumpy but will stick by Sunday no matter what), Alek Nordson (a viking berserker demigod whose memories of his mate were taken from him, but has made every effort to get to know her again).

The Story: As you can probably tell by the title of this one, it starts out focusing mostly on Caleb Gallagher (The Priest). Who has been working with the Society, the heads of all the families and the angel Gabriel to prevent the apocalypse. He has been charged with keeping an eye on Sunday but has been attracted to her since the start. His guilt nearly kept him from her, but he couldn’t stay away.

Caleb was working with the group was in exchange for his soul. Gabriel promised the vampire priest that he could restore Caleb’s soul if Caleb prevented the apocalypse and he vowed to do so. I liked this book because Caleb was the most interesting of Sunday’s men. This book immediately went into his past in the eighteen hundreds when he was a priest and was turned into a vampire.

A lot of different things happened in this book. It got creepy and religious. Signs of the apocalypse like locusts and plague, four horsemen and more. Sunday and her guys were separated for much of the book after she was kidnapped. There was all sorts of mayhem, some of which I didn’t particularly like, but it did keep things interesting.

The book is told in multiple points of view via duet narration and narrated by a full cast. This series is narrated by Stella Hunter, Jason Clarke, JF Harding, James Joseph, Aaron Shedlock and a special appearance by Shane East. I am getting spoiled after listening to this entire series in one long binge. It will be hard to go back to solo and dual narrated audiobooks after this.
