Coming home to a quiet, dark house.Meals by myself, because she was already done. Excuses and apologies, they were never enough. But even with that, when I touched her—when she arched under me and pulled me deeper— we couldn’t get back to where we needed to be. Where we used to be. It was all frustration. Loneliness. Loss. Because even though she was no longer my student, the chemistry was always there. Adele and I loved each other. We thought we were unshakeable. But love isn’t always enough. It wasn’t enough when I constantly disappointed her. It wasn’t enough when loss cleaved us in two. And when she left me, love was not enough. She didn’t know yet that I’d never stop fighting for her. But she would. **Author’s note- Let’s be real clear that this is BOOK TWO of a duet, and you’re going to want to read Tempting before you read this one. Adele and Nathan started their story in that book, and you’ll get the same sex, fighting, and cursing that you did in the first. But if you want it to make sense, read Tempting first. If any of that offends you, please avoid them both.**

I didn't think Alex Lucian could top previous books, but Provocative proved different. I fell in love with Nathan and Adele in Tempting, which was a phenomenal debut novel hooking me from the start, so when I saw there was going to be a continuation of their story, I got giddy and knew I had to read it.
Provocative brings us to the current state of Adele and Nathan's relationship, they've settled more, they have fallen into daily patterns, routines, taking some of the bright spots out of their relationship and replacing them with different worries or problems you might say.
I love that this story takes us on a journey through their ups and downs, leaving us wondering what is coming next for this couple and if they can work through it or if they will find themselves drawn too far apart.
Provocative captures your attention and sucks you in, but this isn't just a love story, not just a romantic tale, instead it is a glimpse into the real life struggles couples face. It touches the heart, and wreaks out emotions, all while leaving the reader on the edge of their seat with the will they or won't they mind frame.
In Provocative, we are presented with two strong characters we know and love from a previous book, but nothing is as expected. The changes bring about a lot of growth for these two and prove that while love can last - it needs help here and there, and sometimes we do more harm by holding back our thoughts and feelings. That real life involves changes, scary and new changes or familiar ones. That real romance, relationships are not always smooth and easy and sunshine, but that they take work to make it through obstacles we find in our way. This book is full of happy moments, and some sad, some that may make you a little annoyed, but also beautifully written scenes of true depth of love. This book is also full of exploding chemistry, steam and HOT scenes. It's a great blend of all of the above and it is all woven together intricately delivering a powerful picture of a love that can last.
