What is it all about?
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?
What I say
There is nothing quite like snuggling up on the couch on what may as well be a winters night with the fire blazing, something to much on and a good book. Even better when that book is from one of your absolute favourite authors and you have an advance copy. Yup thats right, ever since I read her first book, Caught Up In Us I just can’t get enough of Lauren Blakely and what have become known as ‘The Blakely Boys’.
This most recently Blakely Boy is no different, Matthew Harrigan is just as adorable and impossibly sexy, or should I say as ’eminently lickable’ as all those that came before him. Our leading lady is also just as fabulous. Jane Black, the woman who had her heart shredded and is fighting her way back.
As always I was totally hooked from the word go. Lauren Blakely always reels us in nice and quickly and we eat up the story. The only problem with that is that because we can’t get enough we read into the wee hours of the night, the story is over way too quickly and we are left with a book hangover. While that sucks as a reader I am sure it is music to an authors ears!
Far Too Tempting is also funny. While I always say I don’t ‘do’ comedy – this wasn’t comedy as such. It was witty. It was banter. It was very Lauren Blakely. If you have ever been lucky enough to have had interaction with Lauren you will know this book is all her. Even her emails are laced with it. It’s not forced humour or that she is trying to be funny, I’m guessing this is just Lauren’s personality and we are very lucky that it transpires into her books.
Basically what I am telling you is this book is awesome and you need to go and buy it.
And just for a little teaser
