Genre: New Adult Contemporary romance

Temptation Synopsis She needs to be good.
At sixteen, Kit ditched her crappy life and moved to Nashville with only $200, her guitar, and a notebook full of songs. She hit it big, but five years of living like a rock star plus a stint in rehab has killed any good will she had with her label. The suits have ordered Kit to shape up or ship out of the limelight. The last thing she needs is a hot, sexy distraction with a sinful smile.
He doesn’t know the meaning of the word.
Max Butler is as far from a celebrity as you can get and he likes it that way. A Nashville firefighter, he’s living the single life with a revolving door of parties, friends, and a different woman in his bed every night. When his normal life suddenly collides with the girl on his favorite Rolling Stone cover, he sees the perfect chance to fulfill his ultimate fantasy and see just how bad Kit can be.
Sometimes bad is so very good.
With three weeks until Kit leaves for her big tour, Max promises to give her a break from being the good girl–no strings attached. But when hot days lead to sultry nights, the lines get blurred and suddenly three weeks of bad might not be good enough.

My Thoughts

I think I have bagged myself a new Book Boyfriend with Temptation! Well Let me start with the beginning.

I really enjoyed this story about Kit and Max, Kit is the American sweetheart / country singer who has done some ‘bad’ things in the past and now needs to be ‘good’ to get back on track and to get into the good graces of the record label again. Max is a hunky and loveable firefighter who always gets himself into trouble at the station and only has women for the night. They are both in Nashville and that is the hometown of producers/singers and lots of media and the lot.
So the book starts off with how they meet each other – in a building on fire where Kit rather runs back into the flames then jumping out of a burning building, cue me laughing and already got captivated by this book for doing this.

Their relationship evolves from just being friends to having a fling for just 3 weeks before Kit’s tour start. This develops slowly into something more and something deeper, however both characters need to deal with their own past problems and their insecurities.

This book just whisked me away and I was daydreaming at work about Kit and Max, how I wanted to be a fly on the wall (thanks to this book you are a fly on the wall!) and how weird love can be, that not everything starts off with the ‘We are from going holding hands to living happily ever after’. The book, the characters and the record label all felt real with good character development – add a good mixture of sexy and funny scenes and Charlie is hooked forever.

I do have to admit that there were times that I really wanted to shake their heads together and to tell them to sort their shit out right this very minute add foot tapping to this scenario. But I guess that was all part of it as they had to find their own inner piece to be able to move ahead into the future. But once Max falls, he falls hard! He will do anything to protect that special person, he would hit someone and would give up everything to be with her. He is willing to keep doing what he’s doing (ie firefighting) but also lets her do her thing, her career and is patient and waiting for that special person to come home. le sigh I don’t think I’m doing Max justice – but move away Four – here is Max Butler!

I can highly recommend this book, I would keep re-reading this book especially when I’m in this kind of mood.
