Bloggers say they haven't cried this hard since 'Taking Chances' By Molly McAdams and crushed so hard on a rocker since Kellan Kyle! This standalone is a must read! Brittan McKenna and Jordon Valentine are going to rock your world.

BLURB!

Brittan McKenna’s life was perfect. After getting engaged to her high school sweetheart her happily ever after seemed to be all planned out. However after 9/11 her fianc√© drops out of college to enlist; Brittan’s life takes a swift turn. During his tour she tried to stay strong and hold onto the hope that he'd soon return to her, but then the unthinkable happens and she gets the news every military spouse prays they never have to hear.

On the day Cane died, Brittan believed her heart had died along with him...or so she thought until her passion for music causes her to blaze a new trail testing fate and “tempting tomorrow”.

Eight years marks the anniversary of Cane’s death when Brittan sets eyes upon Jordon; a guitarist whose shrouded in mystery and a world class bad boy for her bands opening act, Tempting Tomorrow. Will he have that spark to set Brittan’s heart a light? After swearing off love will Brittan allow herself to feel again after years of trying anything to numb her pain and heartache? 
Does Jordon have what it takes to win her heart and make Brittan love again?

Falling for a rock star is a dangerous game, but it’s a hopeless task when you both have hidden demons.

For Jordon love does not exist... not until he meets the lovely Brittan who has the power to tame the untameable beast inside of him.

Will Brittan open her heart to love or will she sabotage the relationship before it even has a chance?





My Review

After reading Tempt My Heart by Danielle Jamie, I seriously needed a few days to process what I had just read. I finished this book in honestly 2 sittings, which tells you something when it’s a 400 page read!

Not since reading My Skylar by Penelope Ward has a book left me feeling Verklempt and honestly a bit speechless! Here goes, I hope I can do this book justice with my review!

I FUCKING LOVED THIS BOOK!!! That being said, I need to note that this book comes with a WARNING that you honestly need to heed.

THIS BOOK IS…

A seriously CRAZY EMOTIONAL ride…YOU WILL UGLY CRY…
REMOVE MASCARA BEFORE READING!!!
    and finally…
A BOX OF KLEENEX IS MANDATORY!

God this Prologue… as soon as I read it, I knew this book was going to consume me. I’m a sucker for the prologue, I honestly feel that a great prologue is what sets the tone and mood for the book, if it doesn’t grab my attention from the get go, then I tend to loose interest fast.

This prologue had me tearing up, but not just a little tear, nope full on tears along with those annoying nose twitches and burning sensations all by the third paragraph!
(See sucker for a good prologue!)

The story is told in the reflective voice of Brittan for the first 15 chapters and let me tell you there were times when I wasn’t sure I could keep on reading. But at the same time, there was no friggin’ way I was voluntarily putting my Kindle down either!

The writing is perfect! Ms. Jamie, has a immense talent for writing so descriptively that I honestly felt like I was a part of the book. I was totally wrapped up in this story like a blanket on a cold day! LOL! There were never times where I felt it lagged or skipped ahead, the story just flows from start to finish. Did I mention it’s 400 pages? That is talent my friend!

The story begins with Brittan sharing her past with us; a past so filled with love and promise with the amazing man that is Cane. God, reading about Cane and Brittan and how they fell in love, his alpha-ness, their ups and downs all the while getting to relish in the hotness of their relationship was incredible!

Then it happens!!!!!!! The part that breaks Brittan’s heart into a billion pieces, along with  honestly every woman’s who reads this book’s heart too.
While deployed over seas Cane is killed. HOLLY SHIT the ugly crying that ensues in the chapters following seriously had me beyond ugly crying. It was so bad that both my son and husband asked me if I was okay! You know when you cry and you kind of hyperventilate?? Well that’s exactly what I sounded like.

I’m not going to get into what happens to Brittan after Cane’s death because YOU NEED TO READ IT, to experience her journey. And I hate spoilers!

But don’t worry because there is light…Light in the name of Jordon Valentine!
Best last name ever for him, as he is a heart healer!

Jordon is part of the band that will be touring with Brittan and her band Beyond Redemption. I know I didn’t mention that she was in a famous band but to me it wasn’t important, until now.

From the moment these to meet the chemistry and sexual compatibility is palpable and dripping from the pages. Despite neither looking for any time of relationship, they give us one of the hottest and sexiest journeys into love that I have read in a long time.

Jordon ends up being all the things Brittan needs but hasn’t let her walls down to accept until now. Reading about how these to come together was redemption for al the tears I shed in the first half of the book. Brittan and Jordon are perfect for each other, not only are they supportive of one another, they help each other to heal. Not to mention together these two have some really smoking hot hot scenes! Jordon will leave you panting and waiting for more! Again the writing is so vivid that there were times when I felt like I was intruding!

I know I need to wrap this up as its getting long, but again I need to say YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK!  This is once again one of the few stories that I will giving a spot to in m book loving heart! I won’t soon forget Brittan and Cane or Brittan and Jordon!
