Editorial Reviews

Goodreads 4 Star Review - McKenzie Templeton
Another stunning addition to the series, Tempted is an exciting sequel to Tethered, the original tempting novel that began my love for the series. Tempted is everything and so much more than I expected. It totally blew the first novel right out of the water! It was dramatic, steamy, and packed with so many plot twists you will never see coming.

The plot of this novel is spectacular. With the first novel, the story is just taking off.

Goodreads 5 Star Review - Estelle V
If you liked the first book, you are going to love this book! The writer really has a way to draw you into this story. There are moments in this book when I felt like I was the character in the book getting to experience what they are going through. I was so drawn into the story that I didn't realize that I had been reading for two hours and had half of the book read. For me there were moments in this book where I was shocked, surprised and even cried at some of the revelations that occurred.
Goodreads 5 Star Review - Melissa Bush
WOW! Brandi Leigh Hall has done it again! Once again you are sucked into Chloe Bishops world from the first pages. There are times you want to be Chloe (because who honestly doesn't want to make out with the sexy Hunter?) and there are time you just want to smack her and say "What the heck are you thinking?" There are numerous twist that I was not expecting. And a very interesting love triangle that has quite the unexpected ending...

Goodreads 5 Star Review - Chloe Z
This book was amazing! I loved it so much more than tethered. I like conflicts that involve love triangles even though they anger me. All of chapter 19 and 20 were some of the most intense chapters I have ever read! When I read them this morning, my mind was just completely blown from the plot twists.
Goodreads 5 Star Review - Karyn DeGiorgio
Be ready for an emotional roller coaster while reading this! I found myself laughing, crying, mad at characters, feeling bad for others, and anxious at times knowing something was going to happen. I couldn’t put this book down. I highly recommend this book because it has a unique story and written in a way that grabs all of your emotions. It is funny, sad, nerve-wracking, sweet, and interesting all at the same time...

To start, if you haven't read the first book, go buy it, read it and then immediately go get this one! You will thank me. This book really draws you in, the way Brandi writes makes you feel like you are there, experiencing what they are, and are part of the family. You really get to grow with the characters in this book, the first book it feels like they are all a little shy. This one however, they are much more relaxed around each other, which makes for more magic and more excitement. She also writes in a few different characters POVs in this book. I thought it made for a very interesting story since you get to hear from different characters. You will not be disappointed with this book, there will be lots of magic, twists you most definitely will not see coming, and it is written in a way that draws you in so much you won't want to put it down until you are done!

**I was given an ARC in exchange for my honest review of this book. Just as in the first novel, I finished this book within 24 hours of opening it!  It is a very easy read with a fantastic plot line!  Everyone's favorite characters are back in book 2, with a few wonderful new additions.  Tempted is definitely "darker" than its predecessor (a little grittier with a little more language), but it is still appropriate for a YA audience.  At first when I heard there were going to be shifts in point of view for different chapters, I was hesitant; this is not a writing style that I typically enjoy.  I must say, not only was it necessary for this novel, it actually enhanced the story!  There are aspects of the story line you would not be able to follow if the reader wasn’t given access to so many peoples’ heads at once!   If you like fantasy novels with witchcraft and wizardry, this YA novel series is for you!  The characters are so easy to fall in love with, you find yourself missing them when you close the book.

Tempted is the second book in Brandi Hall’s BirthRight Series. The first book is Tethered. You do not have to have read the first book to enjoy the second book but you’d been missing a great book if you don’t read it! Brandi does a wonderful job of backfilling the story to bring the readers up to speed from book 1. She does it in a way that it fits in with the story as opposed to feeling like explanations need to be written in order to understand the current story. Tempted begins a couple of months after the ending of book one and sets up the story right away. Like the first book, this captured my attention from page one. We see all the same great characters from the first book but they are more developed and many of the chapters are written from their points of view. This helps us to gain a greater insight into their thoughts and has us falling in love with them even more. There are also some new characters introduced this this book. Be ready for an emotional roller coaster while reading this! I found myself laughing, crying, mad at characters, feeling bad for others, and anxious at times knowing something was going to happen. I couldn’t put this book down! There were a few unexpected twists in the story and I found myself practically speed-reading trying to find out how the particular situation was going to play out. I highly recommend this book because it has a unique story and written in a way that grabs all of your emotions. It is funny, sad, nerve-wracking, sweet, and interesting all at the same time. Over the past 4 months, I have read 54 books of this same genre. This is one of the few that stuck with me and when I finished, I just kept thinking about the story and the characters. Some books I finish and think, OK, what next? This book I finish and think, I want to read that again!

Awesome job. Darlene Hahn

If you haven't read Tethered, then you should. It sets up the story nicely. I enjoyed Tempted even more than Tethered. There's more conflict in Tempted and things are slightly darker. We get to meet new characters; one in particular was mentioned in Tethered. I won't tell you who it is. Hopefully you'll be as blindsided as I was. I enjoyed Xander and how he challenges the status quo. With this book more of the prophecy is revealed. The family explores more of their magical abilities and their linked-in abilities. Some powers are enhanced and we get to see some future potential. They even start to explore the family history. We get to see the family pull together even more and the love and the lengths they'll go to when something goes wrong with a loved one. Ms. Hall introduces characters different points of view, which I thoroughly enjoy. I like experiencing things from different characters. I really liked this book and the series so far. I know it's one I'll read again. I look forward to the next book. Things are building and I can't wait to see how they'll be handled. The epilogue sets things up for the third book. I know it left me wanting to start the third book immediately.

Wow and Wowza! I absolutely loved this book and was floored when I finished it! Believe me, this is a book you will want to read--wonderful sequel to Tethered, Book 1. It felt like a family reunion to reconnect with the Family and there are some very interesting new characters that you'll adore....and it will keep you guessing until the end of the book. Lots of action and twists, and what's really interesting--several POVs! I HIGHLY recommend it!!!

Fresh and wonderful! Brandi has a way of making you feel like you are a part of the story. I was drawn in by the sweetness of the first book, Tethered, such a warm and loving family who happen to be magical! Tempted continues the strong family connections as the family struggles to protect one of their own from an evil adversary. The darker tone of the story is compelling and keeps you on the edge of your seat! The story being told from different members of the family offers the reader a perspective from each family member and really allows you to feel a loss of connection. We watch the characters grow and develop as the story unfolds catching glimpses of how they may play a part in the Prophecy. The battle between good and evil is ever present and will require each family member to do their part, even those from days long past! Loved it!

If you liked the first book, you are going to love this book! Chloe has a lot of obstacles to overcome. Some she is aware of, and some she has no idea of. The prophecy takes this family through more than they have ever expected. Through multiple points of view in this book you will feel more as a character in the story than a person just reading a book. I was so drawn into the story right from the first page that I didn't realize I had half of the book read within two hours. This book had moments where I was shocked, and even cried from some of the revelations that occurred. The author has really grown as a writer and you can tell by the differences from the first book to the second one. After reading this book, you are going to wish you could dive into the third book. It leaves you wanting more!! I know that I can't wait to see what she has in store for us in the next book.
