Far Too Tempting by Lauren Blakely - Book Tour, Book Review, Giveaway

Lauren Blakely's FAR TOO TEMPTING is being released and we are so excited to join the blog tour for it. Don't miss out on this exciting tour and all the stops. Check out what we have for you today and then enter to win in the blog tour giveaway!

Jane Black has written the break-up 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?

It took one failed marriage, a broken heart and a heart-breaking album for indie singer Jane Black to make it and earn the Grammy. After her post win-euphoria, gaining a large number of fans and story-hungry press, she can already feel the pressure for her to make a next big-hit album. It may took only a few days to finish the last hit album inspired by her ex-husband’s abandonment, what will it take for her to make the next one? Her love life has been on hold, she hasn’t dated – no thanks to the self-esteem blow given by Aidan after he left. But when the British (I can totally hear his accent!) music journalist, Matthew Harrigan asks her for an interview, she agreed, provided her private life would be off limits.  
Who doesn’t want to hear the sexy accent coming from an English man? I totally understand Jane why she felt attracted to him. He’s sexy, handsome, smart – but one problem lies: he’s a journalist. What makes her so sure that he wasn’t using her to get a story?  
She wasn’t prepared for heartbreak, so no matter how tempting Matthew might be, she must tread carefully. But as they spend more time together, the chemistry is about to blow out of proportion and the attraction could no longer be denied. Did I mention she’s suffering from a writer’s block??? Just as when her love life is about to soar high, her career is about to plummet if she can’t make a song before the deadline hits.
Heartbreak is one of the most painful emotions people experience in life. One way to survive it (besides eating tons of ice cream) would be music. Jane Black had put all her emotions, frustrations, and anger in one album that instantly made wonders in the music industry. But what others don’t know, it is not just her heart that was broken – it was her self-esteem as well. For someone who is intelligent, she didn’t see that one coming. She felt embarrassed for being stupid, for not realizing things about Aidan earlier in their relationship. I understand her frustrations and her being careful in dealing with Matthew – he may be hot, but he’s a journalist, and it’s their work to dig up anything interesting about their subjects. Subject like her ex-husband is definitely interesting, but it was something she wouldn’t want to discuss with anyone. Trust is hard to give, most especially when the person you have trusted the most has already broken it. It took Matthew a lot of effort before she opened up, there were a lot of bumps and dramas in their relationship, a lot of misunderstanding because of the trust issues, but in the end, they both got what they wanted. I so love the changes that Matthew had done to her self-esteem - it wasn't an easy feat. But he had done it with flying colors. Indeed, love, whether it made or broke you, can make things possible.
I am powerful. I am sexy. I am beautiful. To a man. To the man I want. 
Let me start with the cover -  the red bra says it all!!! Sexy and captivating. The plot was great, the chemistry was overwhelming I think my Kindle would have combusted anytime, the steamy scenes were HOT and of course, the characters were likable, but wished I had Matthew’s POV too! (It would have been grand!!).  
I enjoyed reading the journey of a striving artist reaching the pinnacle of her career, and once again striving to maintain her momentum while balancing motherhood, a new-found love life and an ex-husband who’s trying to be a friend. It was an amazing story about trust, love, forgiveness and moving on.
