Storyline

Workaholic Mike grudgingly minds the kids while his wife, legal assistant Emma Burke, flies to Hawai with ashes of Lily, the native who raised her and came to Boston with her. On the minor Hawaian island, Emma finally gets acquainted (again) with her family, and decides to stay, also to help with their flower nursery's legal problems. She also learns her biological mother is alive and well on the island, but refuses to talk to her now and starts an ill-considered affair with handsome cousin Kala. Mike flies in with the two children, complicating everything further. Written by KGF Vissers

This movie is quite good for spending an evening with it. Actually I caught it on Hallmark channel, so it means it' supposed to be made for the whole family. So the main lack of the movie is the ending, completely unreal. Probably it was dictated by that obvious rule - tell the moral at the end and praise the family values. What we got? Woman, that is every day tortured by the daughter, who complains that mom doesn't understand her, husband, that drawn in the routine of life and turned his family life into deadly boring thing. And when she met gorgeous guy who fall in love with her, what does she do after? Yeah according to these stupid family movies' rules - return to her family - back to her home hell. I mean she had chance to escape everything that burdened her in life before she came to Hawaii. This decision seems to me unreal. The end of "Tempted" is like banishing from Paradise. The heroine doesn't look like she's making the step to new or at least refreshed life. She's bravely returning to her family, but it does look like if she's making a DEED - not a joy or happiness. The views of Hawaii - beautiful nature and Jason Momoa will be a bonus:))while watching.
