Far Too Tempting by Lauren Blakely



Jane Black has written the breakup album of the century, earning her a Grammy, a huge legion of new fans, and the pressure to repeat her success. Sure, the heartbreak from her husband’s unconventional abandonment might have been her inspiration, but it hasn’t done her any favors in the dating department. So when Matthew Harrigan, the toughest music journalist out there, asks for an interview, Jane agrees—as long as her personal life is completely off-limits.

British, gorgeous, and way too tempting, Matthew’s the first guy Jane’s been attracted to since her husband. As she spends more time with him and their relationship heats up, though, so does her writer’s block. How can the queen of the break up pen the perfect follow-up when she’s seriously in love?



4 out of 5 stars

I was immediately pulled into Jane’s story and liked her instantly. I liked that she was tough yet cautious. I really liked Matthew too, he’s British, extremely sweet, totally swoon worthy and definitely has a way with words. I loved that he was such an up front kind of guy. Together Jane and Matthew have great chemistry and really connected well. Their conversations are so easy and playful. I thought they were super sweet together.

There were emotional parts throughout the story, the recounting of Jane’s breakup was extremely heartfelt. There’s a bit towards the end too when she really has an ah-ha moment and I felt extremely connected and was caught up in the scene. I have to say, I loved Jane! I love that she was strong and really figured her stuff out by the end. It was a heartfelt, emotional story about moving on, accepting, trusting again, and falling in love. 

And may I just say – holy hell with the hotness! Lots of hotness. *whew* Lauren Blakely knows how to write the best steamy scenes. Wow… just saying… WOW.

I thought the story moved along at a good pace. At about the 60% mark I was ready for a bit more drama. When the drama did come back around it was just the right amount. I enjoyed the story line and there was a nice build up throughout.

I am so glad Jane found the closure she needed as well as inner strength to move on. She's a tough chic. Matthew was so sexy and heartfelt, add another British boyfriend to the list! Great love story!
