This book sounds like an interesting one. It seems to have everything an adult would be intrigued by but I can't help but wonder what depth there is in here

"Temptation Trials Rebellion," by B. Truly is one book is the series and it is told in the male POV. It is about a nation ran under a dictatorship which controls who you love which is the most vital law, when you marry and who you marry. Every citizen has to get married when they turn twenty one years old to someone they are forced into by a arranged marriage regardless of who they may already be in love with and in a relationship with. You are not allowed to ever get a divorce and you get punished by the law if you commit adultery. You can enter into the Temptation Trials a reality TV game show sponsored by the government where couples loyalty is tempted but they are rigged. These trials are held at Oahu, Hawaii at a resort hotel where the only guests are the Temptresses: Catalina Diaz, Sahara Fenty, Iris Almeda, Kendra Reid, Shannon Winslet, Mariel Dizon, Airi Hastimoto, Isabella and Misha; six chosen males: Kincade Courcier, Travis Bitencourt, Diedrick Nilsson, Thomas Bosko, Tobias True and Roman West. These trials teach these individuals more than they ever thought when they signed up for them. I really enjoyed this romance novel . I did not want to put it down until the last page was read. It was professionally written, had twists and turns throughout, and was well edited. I only found one typo in the book and I would not recommend that anyone under eighteen read this book because of some of the content. I give this book 4*'s.

I'm sorry but this review is written on a general perspective without any character involvement. Just shows as if the reviewer hasn't read the book. Being familiar with this author's work this is the Temptation Trials written from the men's perspective, by means Cade and Tobias. I don't appreciate the dystopian genre but I wouldn't mind giving it a try being familiar with this author's work.

I understand your point about the plot moving fast. However, just one typo in the entire book seems great. Congrats to the author on the 3/4 rating.

This is like India arranged marriage. Our parents choose our partners and we have to live with that. If we have problems then we have to solve it on our own. Temptation Trials Rebellion by B. Truly is a fiction, but it has similarities with reality. I liked the whole idea. Thanks for the free copy.

'Official Review: Temptation Trials Rebellion by B. Truly' is the information that the readers generally look for to read a book. It is a critical analysis of the book and the negative points have been presented equally well. I like the little thesis on the book!

I’m on the fence as to whether or not I want to read this book. I do like books about Dystopian societies, but I don’t like when books have a lot of mature content. I’m very curious about the tournament so I might take a look at this book.

A dystopian romance novel seems like a new and interesting genre. Having no freedom to choose whom to love is a concept already there in many countries, where arranged marriages are the norm. But being in an island and performing various acts to win the right of choice is something these people don't get. So this dystopian future is in fact the past and present for many people. Thanks for the review!!

Thank you for the review. This sounds like a marriage version of the Hunger Games, honestly. I'm not sure how I'll follow it given that I haven't read the first book. I'm interested in how it all ends, though.

This review by B. Truly really intriguing. I was inspired to read the book. It seems to have a very dramatic plot similar to movies such as "The Hunger Games". It's not too far-fetched seeing how the government runs many countries. The United States has shown us that it's not exempt. I would like to read this book today.

A great review it is. One would imagine how the government would be a custodian of marital relationships. Well, it explains how insensitive culture can be to an individual. These are chains that have kept people in bondage. At least your review reveals this.

I like the concept the trials. They are reminiscent of The Hunger Games, or at least in my opinion they are.
