Description (from Goodreads):

What do you do when your whole life crashes and burns? How do you get through the flames?

Tatum Thompson is living the dream. Her life is perfect; with a loving boyfriend, loving parents and a soon to be college graduate how can life get better? Life is good until it isn’t. When tragedy strikes Tatum runs to Josh only to find him in a compromising position with someone else. Turning away from the only life she knew, Tatum is forced to alter her life plan. 

Blaise Richards is a tattoo artist who moonlights as a volunteer fire fighter. Lies and deception leave his broken heart closed until the beautiful green eyed girl casts her spell over him. She’s making him feel things he’s never felt. Making him want things he thought he would never want. 

Tatum wants Mr. just for tonight. 

Blaise wants Tatum to be his forever.

Can Mr. Just for tonight convince Tatum that she’s the one? How long can Tatum resist Blaise’s determination to make her his?


I read this book as a beta reader.

I don’t read a lot of contemporary romance, and I often have a difficult time getting through them, but this was a quick and enjoyable read. Kaylee Ryan’s style of writing is easy to follow and flows well.

The characters and their feelings are described well. Tatum doesn’t want to be in a relationship at this point because of all she has been through which I thought was realistic and smart. Blaise is every woman’s dream. He’s not only sexy but he’s patient, grounded and knows that Tatum is “the one.” He’s not very realistic (at least not in my world) but he is fun to read about.

I definitely recommend Tempting Tatum to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance.
