My Review:
Tempting TatumTempting Tatum by Kaylee Ryan
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Tatum finds herself moving to Tennessee with her best friend when her life in Ohio suddenly falls apart. Her parents are killed in a tragic car accident and when she goes to seek comfort in her boyfriend, she finds him with another woman. Grief on top of grief leads Tatum to accept the offer to relocate and start a new life for herself with her close friends since she has no family left. She finds a job that utilizes her college degree and meets a very tempting man who she is strongly attracted to, but she doesn't know whether she has it in her to trust someone again. Blaise is a tattoo artist who spends his remaining time as a volunteer fire fighter. He is close with his family, but has not had a relationship with a woman that went beyond the physical since his last serious girlfriend betrayed him. He meets Tatum when she moves to his town and their lives intersect. He quickly realizes that it won't be an option for him not to be with her, but he knows that he is going to have to earn her trust.

This was a book that I read straight through once I started it. Besides the initial tragedies experienced by Tatum in the beginning of the story, there isn't really all that much in the way of conflict. Tatum is grieving and not in a place where she is ready to trust someone in a relationship, but Blaise is making that nearly impossible. He is beyond sexy, and he does nothing but try to make her feel safe and wanted until she gives in to him. His relationship with his family is endearing and watching Tatum find a support system in her new friends was wonderful. Blaise gets a bit hyperbolic in his speech, but if you can just accept that he is a perfect person, then everything goes smoothly. There is a lot of too-good-to-be-true going on in this book, but I also felt like Tatum deserved that after what she had been through, and it felt pretty great to fall in love with so many characters. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a touching and sexy romance.

Tatum POV   Blaise has stepped up his seduction tactics. He’s constantly touching me, giving me sweet gentle kisses. His attention has me on fire. I’m ready to take him to the nearest storage closet or bathroom and take full advantage of what he’s offering. He’s marking his claim for the night, and really, he doesn’t need to. I plan to allow him to seduce me. My earlier thoughts coming to mind. I know I shouldn’t since he is Ember’s brother, but I want him. I want to know what it feels like to feel his weight on top of me. To be able to trace his ink with my tongue. I can no longer resist his charms, or seduction techniques, whatever you want to call it. I just don’t want to resists him any longer. I want one night with him. One night of passion and no thoughts of what I lost. I just want him. With that thought, I relax against him. Blaise releases my hand and slips his arm around my waist to hold me against him. I need a drink!
