Book Three in the Amazon Best Selling Evolve Series by S.E.Hall, Entice can be read following Emerge, Embrace and Entangled (novella) or as a stand-alone.
Sawyer Beckett does everything full throttle— he’s fiercely loyal to his friends, always the life of the party and impossible for the parade of women in and out of his bedroom to forget.
Surrounded by true love and happily ever afters, Sawyer's not sure if he's enhancing the what-ifs in his head, or if the goddess on stage that night really is worth the search and nagging in his chest.
At the most inopportune moment possible, Emmett Young comes "skipping" back into his life...and for the first time, Sawyer is the one left wanting more. But Emmett can't give her heart; it's already committed—for life.
The only one strong enough to bring the elusive playboy to his knees is the one he can't have. Luckily, Sawyer Beckett doesn't give up easily.
Mature subject matter and strong sexual content- mature audiences only recommended.
Sighing, I wrap a towel around my waist and open the door, ready to try and be at least a level of cordial I know is only right. “Listen, can I-“ “She’s gone.” I look up, startled by Laney’s voice and shocked to see her sitting on my bed. Thank God I put on a towel. “Where’d she go?” “Home I guess,” she shrugs, “I didn’t ask. I heard the front door slam and got up to see what the hell. Since you’re here and she’s not, I’m assuming it was her.” How did I not hear the door slam? Not that I would have chased her. “Alright, she left. But what’re you doing in here?” She stands, grabbing some shorts off my floor and throwing them at me. “Go put those on and we’ll talk. Since I’m up,” she shoots me an evil glare. I head back in the bathroom to change, and stay in there, locking the door. I am over six feet tall and lift almost every day, and yes, I’m scared to face Laney. Not only is she a hellcat when she wants to be, but I don’t want to see the disgust or disappointment in her eyes. She’s one of my best friends, even more so after becoming roommates, and her opinion means a lot to me. “Get out here,” she yells when she finally realizes I must be stalling. “Take it like a man.” Well, I might as well go out or she’ll undoubtedly come in here, kicking in the door or taking if off the hinges in what I have no doubt would take her less than five minutes. I open it and she pats the bed beside her. “Come sit down. We’re doing this now.” I hesitantly take a seat beside her, my knee bouncing as I wait for her to speak. “First, and of the upmost importance, you know I call my father ‘daddy.’ So hearing your visitors scream it repeatedly in the middle of the night freaks me out. I wake up thinking I’m in some bad Lifetime movie.” Fighting my smirk I agree. "Okay, got it." "Second," she stands and tucks a pillow between my headboard and the wall, "leave that there." She once again sits down beside me. "School and game nights, booty call curfew is eleven. That work for you?" "Yeah," I sigh and run my hands along my head, wishing I had some hair to pull. "It won't happen again Gidge, I'm sorry." She places a hand on my shoulder with a small smile. "Don't be sorry, this is your house too and we hadn't talked about it. Now we have, so we're all good. Any rules you want to put in place?" "Nah, I'm easy." "Made crystal clear by the parade of women coming in and out of here." She laughs and scoots away quickly, ducking the pillow I grab and swing at her head. “Speaking of which, been busier than usual lately. You trying for Guiness or Gonorrhea?" Here we go - what she really wants to talk about.

Every time I read a book by S.E. Hall I fall in love *that* much more. Entice was absolutely no different-it had everything I love and need from a great series.
Throughout the Evolve series we've seen a little bit of Sawyer and his full of life attitude. He's always been loyal to his friends but refused to settle down with any one woman. When all of his friends suddenly start falling in love and settling down he sees a mysterious girl he just knows is going to be a game changer. Problem is-he has no clue where to find her again.
When Emmett Young is struggling to find a steady job she just happens to find one where Sawyer Bennett is the manager. The chemistry between the two is instant, but the problems that lie ahead could prevent them from ever being more then friends. When Emmett reveals her secrets Sawyer has a choice to make and it's not just about him and Emmett anymore.
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Sawyer. He is Mr. Cocky, Mr. Hilarious, Mr. Hot, and Mr. Sweet all wrapped in one.
"Not to mention, I've never gone so long without sex in my life and I'm a little worried backed up cum may start seeping out my eyeballs any second"
I love how fiercely Sawyer loves. He does it without reservation and without consequence. If you're his friend then you're his family which means he does any and everything he can for you.
Emmett is sweet as can be and loves just as strongly. Only difference is that she has another obstacle that can hold her back from having the one person in her life that wants her.
This book was an amazing addition to the Evolve series. All of the characters are people I wish I could be friends with and know they have my back. Hot sex, sarcasm, and loyal friendships are always a recipe for WIN! If you haven't read this series yet, make sure you do-you won't regret it!
