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?

Five Stars

Music, romance and a yummy British sweet talker!

I knew the moment when I read the synopsis for this book that I had to read it. Far Too Tempting was my first time reading anything from the lovely Lauren Blakely, and I am thoroughly impressed!

I found Blakely to write incredibly likeable characters. Jane is a rock star who hit success big time with her breakup album. She's also under a lot of pressure to write her next album. When Matthew Harrigan enters the picture wanting to write a story on Jane, oh boy! This British, dark-haired, blue-eyed music critic is such a sweet talker right from the start. As Jane and Matthew spend time together, her shredded heart begins to heal. On one hand that is good, but on the other hand her creative juices just aren't flowing leaving her with an extreme case of writer's block.

I truly enjoyed every single page of this romantic comedy. Yes, Jane is a rock star, but she's written to be so down-to-earth. You get to see her being a mother to her adorable, young son. You get to see her interact a lot with her family and friends. You also get to see her struggle to move on with her life and learn to trust again. I adored her inner dialogue and how she gets inspired to write music. In the beginning, Matthew is a little relentless seeking out Jane's attention, but he does it in such a smooth way. Both Jane and Matthew are two passionate people. Their emails to each other made me grin. Their banter was often playful and flirty. I just loved them together!

Set against a New York City backdrop, Far Too Tempting is overall fun and romantic. If you like reads with musicians and sexy British guys, then definitely check this one out. Also, Matthew loves to read! What is it about men who love to read? Reading is sexy, you know!!!

  1. I haven't heard about this one before. Thanks for sharing, Grace.:)
    I love books about musicians, but I'm more inclined to the books about bad boy rock stars.:)
    Great review.

  2. Glass, I love those bad boy rock star stories too! This one was a really cute story. I sort of found it refreshing that she was the musician. Thanks for stopping by! :)
