Overview

Independent, talented, and beautiful–inside and out–Haley Sloan knew exactly what she wanted out of life. With her designer lingerie business booming, her career was moving forward, but her heart stayed in the same place it had for four years...hopelessly in love with the single father across the street.

Former wild boy turned responsible adoring father, Eddie Thomas always made sure that the needs of his little girl Emily were his top priority. Being a single father meant sacrificing his wants and needs for that of his little girl and that meant sacrificing his want and need for Haley...no matter how tempting.

Will the oldest of the Sloan girls finally be able to break through to the heart of the man who has had hers prisoner for years? Will this single father finally realize that accepting his love for Haley may be just what his little girl needs to get the family they both deserve?

One choice. Three lives. All tempting.

This was by far my favorite - Eddie capture my heart back in Chelle and Riley's story. His protective and nurturing nature with his sister only carried over to his daughter. He takes his position as a single dad with so much dedication. He truly is selfless in putting his daughter Emily's care and needs above his own. It takes him a while to realize that the friendship he has shared with Haley is a relationship and well worth the time and effort he has put into it. When an accident helps him see the light and realize the importance of his happiness in making his daughter happy then all is right in the world. By far, my favorite of the series. You can read this book (or any in the series) alone without the others but why would you want to! Melanie Shawn makes each book a bit different - maybe it is because two minds are better than one, but although the storylines are similar the characters are so different. The stories vary from book to book which is refreshing. I want to keep reading but Crazy Love not yet available for the Nook

Copy received from Fire & Ice Book Tours for an honest review Tempting Love by Melaine Shawn was a great read. Books like this one are why I enjoy romance novels. Haley and Eddie were such a sweet couple. Both of them deserved true love and happiness. Because Eddie is dedicated to raising his daughter he has a very strict rule about getting involved with anyone even Haley. I loved that Haley and Eddie had a great friendship first before their relationship became more. I loved and enjoyed this sweet romance and highly recommend it!

A 215 page free story of a sweet, loyal lingerie designer and her unrequited 4 yr love crush on her hunky construction worker single dad neighbor. The first 110 pages of this story is foreplay, then the hot explicit sex scenes. Also, angst, drama, romance, and the forgone conclusion. An excerpt is provided for the next story in series.

Great story, chemistry between the characters is explosive. Kept me captivated page after page. You won't be disappointed with this book or any others in the series.

Haley is always trying to get Eddie to notice her, but for now she’s stuck babysitting his daughter. She’s about to open Tempting with her own line of sexy lingerie. That alone sets the sensual tone for the story. Being capable with one’s own hands and fix anything is very HOT. And that was Eddie. Too bad he’s only interested in no-strings affairs ever since his wife left him with a kid to raise. Still, there’s no denying the sexual tension between Haley and Eddie. Author knows how to write compatible characters with steamy love scenes. Her characters feel real. Although this is book 5 in the Harpers Crossing series, this is the second book I’ve read. These novels are good, but I wouldn’t read the entire series because even though each one features a different couple, they all pretty much follow the same pattern: boy and girl hot for each other but for some reason can’t be together, tension breaks with steamy sex, a misunderstanding, and then they live happily ever after. These stories are good to read once in a while though.

I've  read many, but not all, of the books in the Crossroads series and they never disappoint.  In Tempting Love Melanie Shawn shows us what true love really is.  Haley demonstrates throughout this book that the love you have for someone can be independent of circumstances or other relationships.  Haley's love for Emily and Haley's love for Eddie, each different but related, shows through in her words and her actions. Haley is a very likable character and it was easy to get to know and love her quickly in this book.  She stated her love for Eddie as a mere fact - not a huge declaration but a fact of life, like the sun rising and the sky being blue.  For her, it was as much as part of her life as the sun and the sky. Eddie is a tougher nut to crack.  I really wanted to pummel him early on when he went on a booty call while Haley babysat his daughter.  As Krista said later in the book, "Eddie needed to get his head out of his a$$".  He never saw what was in front of him. What Eddie thought was noble, "not having a relationship while Emily was young," was no such thing - he was in a relationship and he just didn't know it.  Thus the "head out of his a$$" comment.  I did appreciate, at the end, his realization of the relationship he'd been having all along, and acknowledged that to Haley.  I laughed when Eddie asked Haley what her answer was, like he was uncertain as to her feelings. She indicated she hadn't answered because she didn't realize it was a question - her love for him was never in doubt. Lacey is the woman you love to hate.  I really liked the dynamic that the author showed between Lacey and Emily.  It demonstrated that kids are more insightful than we give them credit for and many times, what they really need is just an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on.  All in all, another great installment in the "Crossroads" series and with Haley's sisters all back in town, I'm sure there are more great ones to come!

I love a story that mixes adult heat with a truly delightful story! Tempting Love by Melanie Shawn has its share of drama, tears and insecurity, as well as the evil ex making a most unwelcome reappearance. The best part? NO major ANGST and WHINING! Sure, Haley has been in love with Eddie forever, and of course, Eddie treats her like the best friend she is, the one person he can count on to take care of his young daughter. Haley wants more, she is no shrinking violet, just a warm-hearted and caring person who knows who she wants and will settle for nothing less. Eddie has a rep to maintain from his bad boy days, when not being the best father ever, he tends to sample half the female population, a one night stand at a time, after being burned by Emily’s mother, he has sworn off serious relationships until Emily is an adult. Suddenly, he sees Haley in a new light, as a woman, who is OFF LIMITS, or is she? Melanie Shawn, you can write! This light and airy romance is refreshing, a little spicy and full of the kind of emotion that doesn’t cause angst-filled depression. She cleverly details the joy of family through loyalty, humor and the day to day things small town families do. Never once did the story bog down with some massive info dump and never once was I lost because I hadn’t read the previous books, although I plan to rectify that soon! The journey to that last page was pure reading bliss thanks to a great plot, and amazing characters!
