Julia needs to grow up. All that constant guilt and blushing..... it's annoying. Don't know why Angel hangs around such a 'Debbie Downer'!

An Excellent End to a Beautiful Beginning... Would you consider the audio edition of A Tempting Friendship to be better than the print version? I liked both, in fact, I read the print before listening to the audio. I enjoyed this book immensely both ways. What other book might you compare A Tempting Friendship to and why? Since I can't recall having read a book like this before, I can't really say off the cuff. I do know this though. This great friendship in the book gets better and better with each page you turn or listen to in this case. Have you listened to any of Charles Lawrence’s other performances before? How does this one compare? I have listened to Charles Lawrence through all of the Clover Park series, starting with The Opposite of Wild. All of these books are written by Kylie Gilmore, and they are all fantastic. I think that this book falls in line with all of the others and that Charles Lawrence did a fantastic job narrating. He pinned down all of the characters and their voices. Very well done all the way through. If you could rename A Tempting Friendship, what would you call it? Friends with Benefits...lol Really though, the title A Tempting Friendship is a perfect name for the book. I wouldn't change it at all. Any additional comments? I hope everyone enjoys this book as much as I did. You will laugh and cry at lots of different intervals through out the many scenes in this story. I know you will love it too. I didn't want to put it down.

I am sad that the Clover Park series is over but this was such a great book to end it with! Angel and Julia have been friends for a long time. When Julia decides to date again Angel makes sure that it's him who Julia dates. This book gave me all the feels. I love friends to lovers stories and Angel and Julia were such a great couple together. I would recommend this book!

I don't know how to describe this book, this author, and the way I felt while reading without gushing. I'm not a crazy gusher type person, but this book has pulled that out of me. A Tempting Friendship has been long awaited. Each of Ms. Gilmore's books in the Clover Park series can be read as a stand alone, but there are characters that show up in different books. Little hints dropped here and there for upcoming stories, and I've wanted to get my hands on Angel (Well, his story, hehe) for quite some time now. I've been lucky enough to follow this series from the beginning, and when I say each one gets better and better...well, I'm at the point where it's hard to pick a favorite. Each one is special for various reasons. I LOVE friends to lovers stories. Absolutely adore them! A Tempting Friendship is that and so much more. I laughed, I teared up, and I felt a LOT with this book. Julia and Angel are complex, flawed, and have a wildly tangled history. Years and years of guilt, feelings of desire that are plagued with forbidden love. These two went through hell and back to get to their HEA. Tons of feelings had to be laid on the line. Oh, and the humor! Never a dull moment in a Kylie Gilmore book. I also did NOT expect the twist that was thrown into this book. There were quite a few surprises. Clover Park has been a fantastic series to follow. Knowing that it's done and ended, I feel like a part of my own life has closed. But wait, are there more things in store? Whatever happens next from this author, I'll be sure to follow along. I'm a little too hooked on Kylie Gilmore not to! Absolutely beautiful story, And without further ado, I will stop gushing. There. Done. Do yourself a favor and read this book.

What a fabulous way to finish up the Clover Park series! I love Ms. Gilmore's writing style. Every story is an adventurous roller coaster ride of emotions taking the reader through the ups and downs, twists and turns to get to a HEA. This isn't your typical friends to lovers story. There is a whole lot more added to the mix. Julia and Angel are very well written and complex. Their chemistry is off the charts and leads to some very steamy encounters. A must read! ARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This book was a great ending to this series but I am so sorry to see it all end. Angel is the last unmarried brother and thru his brothers series he was called the “Angel” who avoided romance/sex because he was in love with a woman he could not have. In the last book we learned it was a widow named Julia and in this book we finally get to know Julia and Angel. Julia knows that Angel wants love and marriage and while he is her best friend she wants him to find someone so she decides to get out there and meet someone. She starts her adventure off at a singles book club and then online dating. Angel who is in love with her for the last ten years, feels if anyone is going to date her it is him. Angel I loved him. He is sweet and sexy and this book is really about him finally fighting for his Julia. As you read the book you will find that Julia and Angel were never just friends. They both had strong feelings for the other. But Angel never really fought for her. Julia on the other hand found out she was adopted at 18 and to some degree that really affected the choices she made over the last ten years. This was a fun story just like all the entire series with some really good laughs and tears. I hated saying good bye to the gang but we get the Clover Field Brides next so yay!!

This book in this series is sweet, sexy and intense with feelings. It was a fun ride reading this couples journey to love.

My favorite book of 2015 was Ms. Gilmore’s Not My Romeo mostly because of the hilariously witty banter between the hero and heroine. BUT … A Tempting Friendship offers even more. This story is emotional, indulging us with a wonderfully complex relationship and some utterly delightful surprises. And, oh yeah - it’s SEXY. Really, really sexy. This is one series that keeps reinventing itself. Bravo Ms. Gilmore! Highly recommended.

Angels' story is finally here! A Tempting Friendship, by Kylie Gilmore, is the story of longtime friends Angel Marino and Julia Turner. Since Julia's husband died, Angel has been there for Julia. He has honored his best friends request to take care of her. Now Julia is ready to move on and she feels that she needs to let Angel go, so that he can move on as well. Angel just needs to prove to Julia that he has no intention of moving on without her. A great story with some fun twists that I didn't see coming. It was nice to see Angel finally get his "happily ever after". Another great addition to the Clover Park series.

Finally the inside scoop on Angel and Julia. The back and forth as well as some of the side remarks from the previous brothers books had me on edge. I wanted to know the truth and how he Angel got himself in that predicament and oh I got an eye full. There were so many secrets that my head was spinning. I want to go into detail but there will be spoilers. I will just say that Kylie did Angel and Julia justice with the HOT and steamy as well as the clouded guilt that provoked all the push and pull and back and forth. Great conclusion to the hedgehogs and porcupines

Kylie Gilmore. 'Nuff said. When I think "contemporary romance," I think "Kylie Gilmore." This book is yet another example of how Kylie takes MAJOR sizzle, mild humor, and plot twists and mixes them all together to form a can't-turn-the-pages-fast-enough story. And speaking of twists, I did NOT see several of them coming. At all. (Believe me, when you've read as many romances as I have, truly unexpected twists are incredibly refreshing) I was introduced to Angel and Julia in previous books (not necessary to read them before reading this one), and I had formed certain opinions which were WAY off the mark. Their story was filled with some heavy issues, and provoked a lot of emotional responses from "awww!" to "oh, stop it" to "SERIOUSLY?!" Sadly, Angel was the last of the brothers to get married off, but I CANNOT WAIT to see what Kylie comes up with next! (I think she dropped some hints at the end of this book, and the next book is going to be AWESOME!!!) ***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

Love the way Kylie Gilmore tackles heartbreak with a warm hug and a smile. I always get that feeling from her stories and it brightens my day. Her stories impart tiny bits of wisdom hidden inside her captivating storytelling. I received an ARC of A Tempting Friendship in exchange for an honest review. The message behind this story is "listen to your heart." Angel and Julia share a strong friendship that has withstood, marriage, loss and heartbreak. Can it survive the bumpy road to love? Julia is a widow finally ready to move on and find someone new. Angel is the ever loyal friend that has helped her through her darkest days and brought hope and laughter back into her world. A Tempting Friendship is a tenderly charming friends to lovers story that has all the right ingredients to make it a sweet temptation.
