Summary

Everyone wants to give in to temptation, but no one wants to pay the price.

I was a child when my father surrendered me to the Temple of All Gods. No one gave me a choice. No one even bothered to explain. I was simply tossed aside, unwanted.

That was the day the God of Temptation claimed me as his.

Now, I'm studying how to become the perfect priestess. Life in the temple means embracing my emotions and learning to harness each type of desire. Power, fear, lust, and rage are the most common, but not the only ones. Each has a power. Each has its place. I just have to figure out which kind of priestess I'll become.

Before I decide, I have questions, yet no one seems willing to give me answers. My only option is to leave it in my god's hands. This won't be easy, and my instructors think I'm a fool, but Temptation has been listening. Asking. Offering it all.

In exchange, he intends to use me.

I have demands. The priest and priestess who took me in have become my family. The guys? They taught me to love. How am I supposed to give this up? Why should I? Not even a god can make me walk away from them! All I have to do is stand my ground.

In this temple, there's always a temptation. The question is if I'm stubborn enough to resist...or brave enough to pay a god's price.

The Path of Temptation series features a strong woman and the men who love her. It's intended for a mature audience due to graphic language, adult situations, and potentially triggering violence.

Great story & great narration

This is one of my favourite series by Auryn Hadley, and I was delighted when it was announced it was being made into an audiobook. The wide variety of characters in these stories are complex, and the narrators bring them to life exceedingly well in this portrayal.

Set in the fictional city of Calseth, this book is the first in a series that follows one very special girl as she becomes a priestess and strives to save her god. It has some steamy moments, some funny moments, but is at it’s heart a story about love and the different kinds of love there are - sexual, familial, and romantic.

I look forward to the rest of the series coming out!

Exceeded expectations!!

As someone who has read this book multiple times- I had very high expectations for the audiobook. I was curious how the narrators would capture all of the emotion I felt while reading. It exceeded all of my expectations!!

This is an incredible first book in The Path of Temptation series! We get to meet Nari, and grow with her while she goes through all of her initial schooling in the temple of temptation. This story keeps you completely captivated while you go through all of the learning, growing, discovery, & struggles that are faced and handled along the way. The foundation that has been laid with Nari and her guys and her found family in this book leaves you excited and ready for book 2!

Great story, good spice

This first book of the series really draws the reader into this world. Wonderful character development. I'm hoping for more smut in subsequent titles.

Not the Reverse Harem I expected, but loved

I have read many reverse Harem stories and they are all the same. this is the second. I repeat, this is the second reverse Harem story that was completely different. I loved the uniqueness or the world created in this story.

I need the other books!

Excellent story and extremely original plot. For bibliophiles like me… that’s saying A LOT

The one and only drawback I had was the age of the characters and then describing their sexual exploits in detail. That rubbed me the wrong way. I understand it was needed to create context and background for the characters… but I still kind of felt like a pedophile.

Other than that (which was only a few times not the whole book) this book is phenomenal. Such depth behind each character and the storyline flows smoothly.

Love is love!

As someone who doesn't follow a typical path, I appreciate how this book approaches love and relationships! It took a bit to get use to the forward writing style but in the end it was one of my favorite aspects! The love shared between the main character and he guys is fascinating and encouraging for those who think what they feel is wrong. I hope they continue to do the other books in the series because I need to know more!
