Enticed by (Fullerton Family saga, #1) Ginger Voight
Rachel Dennehy had a crazy thought. If she could just start over somewhere else, she could forget about all the ghosts that chased her.
When an email landed in her inbox, to tutor a difficult student whose father just happened to be a prominent businessman, the apple was a bit too enticing for Rachel to refuse. She moves to Beverly Hills, where she is tasked with turning around young Jonathan Fullerton’s bad attitude, one that stems directly from his parents’ ugly divorce and even uglier custody battle. That Drew Fullerton is one of the handsomest and most eligible bachelors in the world means nothing to Rachel. Drew’s brother, Alex, however, assumes otherwise. This sets the two immediately at odds, though they both have young Jonathan’s best interest at heart.
Unfortunately the more he tries to warn her away from Drew, the closer he ultimately propels her toward her charming boss. Rachel stays solely to protect young Jonathan, trapping her into this sticky web despite her own history of loss and betrayal. How long will she last? More importantly, what will she be required to give to save these Fullerton men who continually tug her in three different directions?
The saga begins with the first book, titled “Enticed,” in a trilogy of three, full-length novels to be released over three months in early 2014.

Oh my goodness, what a deeply moving and captivating story. I loved the fact that the main focus here is a child, one who has captured my heart entirely. Twisted family feuds, love gone wrong and a broken boy left behind - the only salvation comes in a public school teacher as she accepts the offer of a lifetime, only to be encompassed in the drama of a corporate family falling apart. This story will keep you drilled to the page until the very final chapter.
Yes, please heed the advice on the synopsis and proceed with caution, because trust me when I say, this book is an emotional read that will trigger those nurturing instincts! This story focuses mainly on Jonathan, a nine-year-old little boy who is another fallen victim to the woes of a messy divorce.
Rachel Dennehy is a public school teacher with a tragic past. Only three years ago her world ground to a halt when she lost the light of her life. With the help of her best friend, Nancy, she gradually regained her footing and continued her career as a teacher in a run-of-the-mill public school.
When she receives an email offering her a six-figure salary to home school a disruptive nine-year-old boy, she believes it’s too good to be true. Uplifting her roots, she leaves behind her simple life and small apartment to jet set off to a $28m mansion in Beverly Hills, to work for non other than conglomerate king, Andrew ‘Drew’ Fullerton.
However, upon arrival, the boy in question is far from what she expected and it soon becomes clear that there is more to the Fullerton family than meets the eye.
This story tells of the trials and disastrous effects of family feuds that go right back to early childhood. It tells a story of two Brothers at war, a messy divorce and child custody battles. And, it tells the story of a plain, slightly overweight teacher who becomes so embroiled in the Fullerton family saga, that professional / personal lines become blurred and crossed. But one thing remains, her nurturing love for Jonathan shines through, as she stops at nothing to protect her student – this lost little boy, from further damage that this escalating dispute has caused.
It doesn’t help that Drew is strong, level-headed, dominant and impossibly sexy - the ultimate package, and although looks can be deceiving, one thing remains true… He doesn’t play fair, especially when it comes to getting what he wants!
I started this book one evening, quite late… and the next thing I knew the birds are chirping merrily and I had only a few hours left before I had to get ready for work. Yes, this is all-nighter material! I couldn’t drag myself away from this story if I tried!
What is it about adorable kids and sexy Fathers? When you fall in love with one, the other comes with the package, right? Only, Drew Fullerton is unpredictable and highly complex, but hot damn, he is the embodiment of professional suited and booted alpha, and I just wanted to take a bite. His arrogance appealed to me greatly, but the effort to connect more to his child when Rachel raises a few home truths are what really made this book for me.
That is until things get turned on their head... again, with the constant interference of Alex, Drew’s Brother. He knows how to throw a spanner in the works and I really despised him for a while, but like anything, Ginger Voight is a master at rug-pulling - you know the one… where she pulls it out from beneath your feet and knocks you flat on your plump derriere? Yeah… that one! Gifted I tell you!!
I loved this story. I loved the premise. I loved the pace. And, I loved this kid! This is a love story, but not in the traditional sense because ladies, the kid comes first! Daddy and his Brother, well… let's just say they are a complicated added bonus. ;)
Looking forward to book 2!
