Your review,as well as others on Amazon, was very insightful. After reading the sample, and learning more, I can tell that it's not for me, either. The Temptation Trials did remind me of the Hunger Games, which I thought was fascinating on TV. However, with too much crude language and sexual content, I've got to decline receiving the book. It was good to read,though, that there was only one typo throughout the whole book, and it was well edited. Thanks for your review.

Actually, I did have the same remark about how things are going so quickly which I find a bit unusual for a romance & Family Novels but only one thing I can proudly confess that i fell in love with these characters .thanks for the Review, we do appreciate your efforts...

Thanks for the review. The storyline sounds interesting. Dystopian romance is something that I have never read before. Will definitely add this to my to be read list.

This sounds utterly excruciating to me. Good thing it was written well. I guess dystopian themes don't resonate with me, especially an arranged marriage one. Thanks for the review.

The idea of a dystopian society filled with forced marriages sounds very similar to many societies that still exist today. Despite that, I would still like to read this story for the mature content you mentioned. Thanks!

The concept seems like a unique spin on the idea of a dystopian society where your spouse is chosen for you.Matched by Ally Condie comes to mind for me. It seems very interesting, even with the fast pacing that you mentioned. I look forward to checking it out. Thanks for the review!

Good job summarizing the premise of the book without giving too much away, sounds like an interesting concept. I may just have to read it myself to see what plot twist you're referring to.

I enjoyed this review and look forward to reading the book. I usually get frustrated by storylines like this but I guess that means I get sucked in to the plot so maybe that's not a bad thing. I am looking forward to the plot twist that you mentioned and discovering if and how the main characters overcome their dilemma! Thank you for the review!

"Temptation Trials Rebellion" is a dystopian fiction by Brandy Truly about a young couple forced to go through a reality show to prove their love while the system is insistent on them accepting arranged marriages. Not so much hunger games, but, definitely an interesting read! Congratulations on BOTD!!

A group of young people having a contest to choose who to marry? Sounds like a compelling plot to me. Thanks for the insightful review.

This sounds like an interesting book. I am not into reality show type books but I might give this one a try. I would be curious to see how the contest goes. I think the reviewer did a good job on reviewing the book.

The premise of the plot seems very interesting although I don't usually enjoy dystopian novels, I might give this one a chance. Thanks for the review

I am not particularly fond of dystopian fiction, so I don't feel this would be the right fit for me, but it does seem to be well written.
