    . could not wait to read this story by Kaylee Ryan Author. She writes amazing stories, but TEMPTING TATUM by far is my favorite one. I fell I Love with all the Characters from the start. Tatum had it all Loving parents and Josh he boyfriend. Getting ready to graduate from College she gets the worst news ever. In one day she looses not only both parents to a tragic accident, but the guy she thought was her future. Having nothing left in her life but her Best Friend which she is like a sister. Convinces her to move to Tennessee with her and her Fiancee. New life in TN she is ready to live again. Blaine has what he thinks is a good life, great family, dream job of owning his own business with his Twin brother Asher a Tattoo Shop and he volunteers as a firefighter at his father's station. He can have any women he wants when he wants. Having had a bad relationship he doesn't and isn't looking for a relationship ever again. The day Blaise sees Tatum he doesn't understand it he can't get her out of his mind. He is convinced she put a spell on him. Funny how things and life are when you are not looking, you find the Love of your life but can you convince the girl you are not like her jerk of an Ex that you can give your heart to another and they will protect it. But what Tatum doesn't know is Blaise is ready to show her just what Real Love is and he is in this for the Long haul. I say to anyone get ready to fall in Love with Blaise and the story. I would get to 1-clicking Now.

    Great Read

    I love this story. The characters are well developed and Tatum and Blaise are so good together. The love that Blaise felt for Tatum was so sweet. He knew what he wanted and wasn't afraid to show his affectione towards her. It so refreshing to read a story with a man that is ready to commit to the woman he loves.

    This is a story of overcoming tragedy and finding the love of a good man to bring healing.

    Good job Kaylee Ryan.

    Tempting Tatum is a truly inspirational story of rebuilding your life and moving on.

    Kaylee does it again in her stand alone novel. From the very first page I was hooked. Tempting Tatum took me on an emotional roller coaster that I just didn't want to get off of.  I loved Tatum. I loved how even after her world collapsed around her she found the strength to pick up the pieces and move on. I LOVE strong female characters. Blaise....what's there to say about Blaise that hasn't been said already? I love him and his persistence in making Tatum his. I love that even though Tatum had emotional baggage he still wanted her instead of running.

    Mrs. Ryan did it again in this standalone novel and I can't win to see what else you have in store for us.

    I started reading Tempting Tatum last night and finished it arou

    I started reading Tempting Tatum last night and finished it around 1 a.m.. I could NOT put this book down. Kaylee Ryan has done it again. I love all her books, but I think she has topped herself with this one. I didn't think she could ever do better than Anywhere With You, but I now have a new favorite from her.

    The story never lags, the flow is amazing and keeps your interest. The plot is a fairly typical one, but with a few of Kaylee's twist and personality in it. TT was pretty much drama free, which I love. There is a tiny bit at the end, but nothing that made you wish the characters would grow up and wonder if they really love each other.

    The characters, Tatum and Blaise, had a wonderful relationship. Tatum had a hard time at the beginning of the book, first her parents and then finding her boyfriend cheating, but she was a fighter and tried to get through it. You still see she was grieving, didn't get over it after 1 chapter, but she still put her big girl panties on and lived her life. Blaise is the ultimate book boyfriend. He is what every girl wants in a guy and wishes for in their own significant other. He is strong, but gentle, kind, passionate, loving, and patient. He knew he loved Tatum right off the bat, but patiently waited for Tatum to be ready for their relationship. I swear he had me swooning and grinning through the whole book, wishing my husband was exactly like him! The supporting characters were great too! I wish I had a story on Grace and Asher!! I would LOVE to see how they came together (HINT HINT). Tatum's friends Brent and Leah were always there for her, but you could see their love for each other. Loved getting a glimpse of Ember and Jackson's relationship, she didn't really go into it, but you did get a glimpse, (Maybe a book on them also???)

    I LOVED this book though, I enjoyed every single word and SOOO glad that Kaylee decided to write it. I have always loved her work and this book out-did everything she has written so far. I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us next. I can't say I will be patiently waiting for her next book, but I will be stalking her until she get's me the next one!

    I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this amazing book! Tempting

    I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this amazing book! Tempting Tatum pulled me in from the first page. Tatum had to go thru more than any one person should endure. She is an only child and her loving parents were killed by a drunk driver on their way home from taking care of her grandmothers estate. Devastated, Tatum wanted nothing more than to be held in the arms of her boyfriend Josh. Tatum goes to him only to find him having sex with another girl. Tatum's world completely falls apart.

    Tatum's best friends Leah and Brent convince her to move with them to Tennessee to start over. Brent gets her a job interview at the Mayor's office. While waiting for her interview, she meets the most beautiful man she has ever seen. He was tall, dark and handsome and covered in colorful tattoos.

    Blaise was at the Mayor's office to help his mother. He wasn't expecting to be knocked off his feet by Tatum. Blaise was not looking for a relationship. He gave his heart away once and was burned. Blaise was happy to have one night stands. That was until he met Tatum. There was just something about Tatum that drew him in. She had him in a trance that he could not shake. He realizes that she is his "one" and will do anything to prove it.

    Tatum is finding it hard to trust after Josh, but can't resist the larger than life firefighter, bad boy tattoo artist. She can't believe he'd like her, but she gets drunk and wants a one night stand. She thinks it will get him out of her system. Blaise refuses to have sex with her until she agrees to be his.

    You must read this touching book that shows the bonds of family and friends and how it's ok to learn to love again. I cried happy tears at the end of this book!

    Sweet love story

    If you are looking for a love story where the hero is not a man whore and constantly pushes his lady away because he is confused. This is your book. Refreshing to finally get stong male characters that don't screw up all the time and actually romance the girl they want. Only complaint about is this book is that "hey you" is used waaaayyyyy tooo much by the hero.....In fact if someone says hey you to me anytime soon....I might punch them in the throat.

    Tempting Tatum by Kaylee Ryan Review by Jen (BestSellers &

    Tempting Tatum by Kaylee Ryan

    Review by Jen (BestSellers & BestStellars)

    Tempting Tatum was amazing!  I have read every book by Kaylee Ryan and loved each one, but Tempting Tatum is definitely my all-time favorite!  I really felt connected to these characters, going through all the obstacles they had to face.  There were times I was laughing, crying, or just happy.  Kaylee Ryan did another great job. 

    I loved Tatum.  She’s strong, brave, beautiful, and smart.  She had a perfect life with amazing, loving parents and a caring boyfriend.  That is until one day, she gets some devastating news.  Going to the one person that’s supposed to be there for her, Tatum finds Josh in a bad situation, one that has her feeling alone.  Forgetting the life she had, Tatum is forced to change her life plan.  Luckily for her, Tatum has Leah, her awesome best friend, and decides to move with her and her husband, Brent.  Landing a job because of Brent’s recommendation, Tatum slowly starts to begin living her life.  That is until sexy, tatted, Blaise Richards pushes his way into her life.  

    Tatum is extremely attracted to Blaise, but she knows she can’t be with someone else after the heartache she has suffered.

    “No matter how damn tempting Blaise Richards is, I will resist him.  Josh was not even in the same caliber as Blaise and he hurt me.  I can only imagine my shredded heart after a guy like Blaise is through with it.  Must. Resist. Temptation.”

    The more time Tatum spends with Blaise, she finds herself falling for him.  Although his reputation isn’t the best, she likes spending time with him, and there’s just something about him that feels right.

    “You’re changing me.  We seem to have this connection I can’t explain.  I wake up excited to see if I’ll run into you.  The future doesn’t look as lonely and scary as it did before.  You make me feel better about life.  You make life better.”

    Then we have Blaise.  Wow, I love him.  He’s a hot, tattoo artist, and a volunteer firefighter.  I mean, does it get any better than that?  He has his own past issues that he’s dealing with and he doesn’t do relationships.  He’s fine with hooking up and moving on.  Until he sees Tatum, and he’s convinced that this beautiful green-eyed girl casted a spell on him because he now wants things that he never thought he would.

    “As soon as I see her, I stop dead in my tracks.  Tatum is sitting on the porch swing, legs propped up, with her kindle in her hand.  The gentle breeze is blowing her hair.  I have to adjust myself.  My reaction to her is surprising.  It’s been a long time since a woman has held my interest like this.  I’m not sure it’s ever been like this.”

    Blaise knows that Tatum is special, and he’s willing to do anything to be with her.  He knows that she’s dealing with a lot, and he wants to be there for her.  

    “I want you, Tatum.  You have consumed my thoughts since the day I met you.  The more time I spend with you, the more I want.  I swear you’ve cast some kind of spell on me.  I just want you to let me in.  Let me be a part of your life.  Give me the chance to show you what you mean to me.  I know it’s fast, but I feel it in here.”

    Blaise also knows that Tatum needs time to heal before she can move on with him.  He knows she’s not ready for that type of commitment, and he’s willing to wait for her.

    “I’m in this, Tatum.  I will wait for you to catch up to what I’m feeling.  Nothing is going to change my mind or my heart.  The sweaty palms, the giddy excitement, the rapid beat in my chest, all caused by you.  You’re it for me.”

    Then we have Leah.  She’s the best friend anyone can ask for.  She’s been friends with Tatum forever and she has stuck by her side through everything Tatum has gone through.  I was happy to see that because Tatum really needed Leah.  Leah knows Tatum so well, and she’s brutally honest with her when she needs to be, especially when it concerns Tatum’s future with Blaise.

    “Tatum Marie Thompson.  Life is filled with heartbreak.  You have lived through more than most, but you survived.  You’re strong and you have to open yourself up to the possibility of pain to find the true happiness.  They would want you to find love, a love like they shared.  I have a good feeling about Blaise.  He could be the one your mom was always talking about.”

    I loved this book.  I loved watching the connection and attraction between Tatum and Blaise.  I really liked that they started off as friends and then worked their way into being more.  I also loved all of the supporting characters.  I hope to see more from them in the future.  I was happy that this story was told in dual point of view, that’s my favorite.  It was such a sweet story and I loved being able to watch two characters come together so beautifully.

    The quality of writing was great.  The story was well-written and very enjoyable to read.  This was such a sweet romance between two characters that had such an intense attraction and connection to each other.  The story kept me interested and I could not put the book down!

    5 Diamonds for this wonderful story!!

    Kaylee Ryan has done it again! I absolutely loved this book and devoured it in just hours. The characters were wonderful.
    Blaise and Tatum have an instant connection. They are drawn to each other even though they try to fight it. Blaise has been burned in the past and so has Tatum but she’s also dealing with a major loss. These are two great characters and I loved their personalities. Blaise tattoo artist and volunteer firefighter. He’s sweet and protective of Tatum. Tatum is nice to everyone and such a strong person. I really liked both characters and easily fell into their world.
    This book was fun, emotional, sad at times, and also full of friendship, family, love, and support. I absolutely adored all of the characters. Even the supporting ones were great. I highly recommend reading this book. 5 out of 5 stars!
