Lauren Blakely writes characters that get a reaction. A bad boy trying to make good, a woman trying to forget her past or a family searching for answers to an age old mystery. Ms. Blakely has written it all and thrown in some high octane sensuality for good measure.
“Far Too Tempting” is a little slower paced than some of her other romances, but it still has characters that are easy to identify with, emotions that are understandable and sex appeal that is off the charts.
In this story, Jane took a bad experience in her life and used it to make her a successful writer and artist, but she is still the insecure and heartbroken woman not many get to see. For me the focus was not on the love story as much as it was about a woman finding her way and learning to take chances. The sexy romance was a bonus.
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 breakup pen the perfect follow-up when she’s seriously in love?
