Getting pregnant after a booze cruise hookup was not what any parent wanted to hear, so I picked up my entire life and moved to Paris to start over. Six years later, I was ready to go home. 

I was a single mom and the only thing I knew about my son's dad was his name—Luca. I didn't need to know anything else.

The universe had other ideas because on our second day back home, the man came crashing back into my life.

Attending a welcome back party for my boss's daughter wasn't how I wanted to spend my Sunday. But walking in and seeing my hookup from a cruise six years ago knocks me on my ass. 

It was a weekend of fun and now I'm seeing a pair of eyes, identical to mine, staring right at me. The boy standing next to her is my son. 

Now we're living next door to each other and attempting to co-parent something that would be easy to do if the pull that brought us together wasn't still there making things more complicated.

For six years she haunted my dreams, now she's haunting my every waking moment.
I let her get away once, now I want to make her mine. 

This time, permanently. 

Only one thing left to do. I have to tempt the hookup.

From start to finish Natasha Madison wove such an engaging story that I couldn’t help but be hooked. This is Eliahn and Luca’s story and oh what a fabulous story it is. Eliahn is a single mum to 6 year old Aiden, thanks to a wild and oh so spicy hookup on a cruise. Returning home after six years away, Eliahn is shocked to come face to face with Luca, Aiden’s father who is even more shocked to learn that he is a father. The chemistry between Eliahn and Luca was off the charts and so smoking hot, you could almost feel the air sizzling as you read their story. Eliahn and Luca are a great pairing and I really wanted them to get their happily ever after, although at times I feared they wouldn’t. Tempt The Hookup is a second chance at love story, which was well written and highly entertaining.

An easy read about a not so easy subject! This story was a surprisingly light read considering that Luca finds out about a kid he didn't know he has - 7 years after the fact. I liked that he took responsibility right away and that he was actually pleased about it. (Quite a difference from some other surprise baby books.) I liked both him and Eli and that they were never involved with anyone else during their years apart! Maybe not entirely realistic considering the circumstances but let me live in this make-believe world, okay?! Lots of humorous moments, as this author is known for. Definitely a great afternoon read.

Tempt The Hookup (Tempt #3) is a hilarious, light-hearted, sweet and sexy as hell romantic comedy which can be read as a stand-alone. Accidental pregnancy books are one of my favorite tropes and Natasha Madison did a wonderful job with this charming and cleverly written book. Luca and Eliahn met on a booze cruise and boy did they have some hot and steamy times together. Their connection was immediate, they were like magnets and just couldn’t stay away from each other. Imagine Eliahn’s surprise when she learns that she’s pregnant and given the fact that they only knew each other’s first names and never exchanged contact information, she was never able to tell Luca about their son, Aiden. Eliahn had been living in France for the past six years and has now returned home. Unbeknownst to her, Luca is an attorney who happened to work for her father’s law firm and considering they didn’t think they would ever see each again, both were shocked when they reunited, especially Luca. And once they were reacquainted, it was more than obvious that their connection never died. The sexy and flirty banter between them was a nice tease and quite entertaining. And trust me when I say, the fiery passion was even hotter this time around. The secondary characters were great and it was a treat revisiting some of the characters from the previous Tempt books. Of course it wouldn’t have been a Natasha Madison book without hysterical, laugh out loud moments not only from the adults but also from Aiden who was cute as ever and stole the show! I loved everything about Tempt The Hookup and the storyline had me smiling big the entire time. It’s the ultimate feel good read!!

Rating: 4.5/5 Having read and enjoyed other books by the author before, I couldn’t wait to read Madison’s latest release. Needless to say, Tempt the Hookup did not disappoint. It was a swoon worthy romance that will hook you from beginning to end. In this story we get to meet, Luca DiMarco, a lawyer who works at Coco and Associates ever since he got out of college having graduated first in his class. It’s his success that has made him an irreplaceable asset in the law firm and his boss really admires him. But no matter what his success brings, he still has a void in his heart. One that he can’t seem to fill no matter who he dates. His heart has alway belonged to one woman and ever since they met on a cruise while in college, he can’t seem to move on from her. Their arrangement was simple, no names during the four-day trip and they would go their separate ways. What he wasn’t expecting at the end of the trip was to really like her. Now it was been six years since the last time they saw each other and he still misses her. So when his boss calls for him to attend a welcoming part for his daughter, Luca agrees to go. Little did he know that his boss’s daughter would turn out to be the same woman he met at the cruise all those years ago and with her a kid that looks just like him. Luca might not know his son, but he is willing to do anything to catch up after all the years he didn’t have with him. Learning to co-parent would have been easy, but he still has feelings for Eli and will not stop until he wins her back. Eli Coco never expected to meet anyone at the cruise she went on, but after stumbling across Luca, everything changed. There was no need for any more information other than names only and after that they were supposed to go their separate ways. But after a couple of weeks back home, she discovered that she was pregnant. Without the support of her family, she accepted the admittance into design school and left for Paris two weeks later. She struggled without knowing anyone there, but she had her son, Aiden and he made everything worthwhile. Her return from Paris was supposed to symbolize a new beginning with her family close by, but she got more than she bargained for the minute she sees Luca at the welcoming party. Eli is scared of what he might think of their son and of the life that he might have with someone else. It’s these fears that has her building walls to protect herself, but at the end of the day she still loves him now she has to find a way to let him that she does. Tempt the Hookup was an overall sweet story about new beginnings. Luca is the sweetest when it comes to Aiden and Eli. He is protective over them right away and assumes responsibility of being a father. On the other hand, Eli has been through so much and she is happy to see that her son has a father figure to look up to. As the two get to know each other, the more they realize that they are meant to be together. As I mentioned before, the story is sweet and romantic. Yet, it lacked drama and I do wish the author could have extended some scenes between the characters. But the story does end nicely and everything comes full circle. I would still highly recommend it and I cannot wait to read more from the author in the future. :) **I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review**

This story was so good!!! Eli and Luca were amazing together. I loved that there was very little drama between the two of them in the circumstances, and how welcoming their families were. I enjoyed catching up with some of my favorite previous characters of Natasha’s, and seeing where they are now. An amazing must read that I would HIGHLY recommend!!

Another book by this author that I absolutely devoured. I never get sleep when I have a book by this author. This one was sweet and fun and would make anyone feel a little heartbeat in their ovaries. This was a second chance at the one that got away. This is the third book in the series but can be a complete stand-alone, but for a pee in your pants laugh I recommend the first two. Luca is an attorney that is just rocked by seeing his hookup again after 7 years at his boss's daughter's welcome home party. No other girl has lived up and made him feel like Eli did that week on the booze cruise. With no contact or last names given out he searched but never found her. Eli ran off to Paris to school and becomes a single Mom to Aiden As soon as Luca sees Eli holding Aiden's hand he knows he left more than Eli behind. Luca is so freaking yummy he never doubts and mans ups so hard. Luca and his friends are so funny you will crack up the entire read. Swooning so much for this couple.

Oh these two were super perfect for each other! Can we say sweet alpha-male? Can we say strong independent woman? How about a no-filter six year old? Grandparents who dote and are parents who may overshare a little bit? It is a tempt book, so there is that over the top wacky best friend, with his perfectly matched wife, and then a couple more zany friends for added hilarity. The root though, the base, is two people who connected on a physical, and emotional level, long ago. They held their agreement, and realized the second it was done, they were wrong. Nobody has compared since, and nobody measures up to them. No hesitation when they are finally reunited, just some misunderstandings to wade through first I laughed, I teared up, I cheered, I cringed, I squirmed, and I loved every single thing about Luca and Eli’s story!

This was a book that I have been waiting for ever since I found out about it. The first two books in this series are two of my favorite ROMCOMs. I just knew that this one was going to be just as funny, if not funnier than the first two. Yes Lauren and Austin's story had me from the chapter 1. And Noah and Kaleigh's story had me laughing from all the stuff Noah had to say. So I just couldn't wait to see what Luca an Eliahn had in store. Especially since there's a secret child. The wait for this book was well worth it. And I loved the laugh out loud moments that were from beginning to end. I cannot say one thing bad about this book. Especially since quite a lot of the funniest moments were ones that couples with kids either fear or have had it happen to them.

Tempt the Hookup was sweet, swoony, humorous and romantic as can be. I have to say that I read this book in one sitting as it just had me hooked throughout. This was a real feel good read that left me with a cheesy smile at the end. Lucas and Elihan had great chemistry and a couple you will really want to get behind. I loved that it was angst free and that Lucas was just a great guy. Natasha Madison once again delivers a really enjoyable romantic comedy and I for one would be happy to recommend this stand alone read.

I tell ya, Natasha Madison can do no wrong! She hasn’t written a single book that I haven’t enjoyed thoroughly. Tempt the Hookup was another delightful read. First, I love reading series. I know for people coming in and seeing 5 previous books in a series may seem daunting but there isn’t much better than getting to really know a group of characters and getting to revisit them throughout years of reading. Reading Tempt the Hookup was like getting to revisit a group of friends! All the characters are fun and so loyal to each other. I just adore the scene Madison has created. In Tempt the Hookup, we have Eli and Luca. They have a single parent, surprise baby, second chance thing going on. I couldn’t get enough of this story! They are insanely hot together! There’s this magnetic like pull for them to be together. And Good Lord, Luca, who knew he’d play my heart like a fiddle?! For a total workaholic he was incredible and sweet. So, the story itself might not feel totally believable or real, but if I wanted real life I wouldn’t be reading! Right? I read for the ability to transport and go wherever the author takes me. I love to visit Natasha Madison’s worlds! I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

This book is absolutely adorable! It’s such a sweet, romantic, funny and good for your heart and soul book! I enjoyed every word from beginning to end of Luca and Eli’s journey to their HEA! And what a sweet journey it is! Natasha Madison has once again given us a hero to love and admire in Luca. I fell in love with him so easily by the obvious strength of character and devotion he shows. And Eli is just as wonderful. In fact I really liked all the characters in this book. Two people could not be more perfect for each other as Eli and Luca though and I just adore that time didn’t change a thing for them. I truly loved this book! Those last couple of chapters and epilogue had me crying the happiest of tears!

Well, Natasha Madison has done it again! Tempt the Hookup is another book in the Tempt series that I devoured in record time! I just couldn't get enough of this sweet, steamy, hilarious at times standalone (but there IS some mild crossover of characters from the previous two Tempt books) that made my heart soar and gave me ALL the feels! This book ended waaaaaay too soon and I loved every second of it! I immersed myself in this one, completely wrapped up in Luca and Eliahn's story that starts with a four day college booze cruise where they meet, the chemistry is off-the-charts and they agree to just using first names only, not getting into anything personal, parting ways at the end of the cruise...except Eli gets a surprise a few weeks later when she discovers she's pregnant with no way to contact the father! Fast forward 7 years and Luca gets the surprise of his life when he meets his boss's daughter at her "homecoming" party and he realizes just WHO his boss's daughter IS...and meets the son, Aiden, that he never knew existed! Let the FUN begin!!! Ms. Madison has created this AWEMAZING, completely engaging, heart-felt, sweet and sexy read that is one of my favourite reads of hers! If's a definite MUST READ, in my opinion...Bravo, Natasha!!!

Much more than a hookup story. Tempt The HookUp is my first book in the Tempt Me series by Natasha Madison. It's sweet and funny, full of heart and flowers and no angst. It’s not quite a slow burner, but as a second chance romance, the two characters already know each other. As well as you can after four days anyway. Eli and Luca met on a booze cruise seven years ago. They hooked up for four days of fun and decided not to tell each other their full names. Neither wanted to leave the other at the end of the trip, but they did. They took each other’s hearts with them, but unbeknownst to Eli, she took something else as well. When they are accidentally reunited, Luca has a shock in store for him. Eli has a son… and he’s Luca’s. Luca is a sweet and sexy, protective alpha, but not in a beat his chest way, which is just as well. Eli has been on her own for over six years and in a foreign country to boot. It’s only because she missed home that they met again. So, Luca could have made her wary of him if he’d been a big. Broody grunting male. Thankfully he wasn’t. In most books, this scenario would be a cause for fights and recriminations, not to mention threats of custody battles. But, Eli and Luca just knew… they were meant to be. The book follows their sweet, somewhat sexy relationship. I say somewhat because they are seriously blocked from smexy times by their adorable son, Aiden. This little chap played a huge part in the story as did the parents of both Luca and Eli. Add in their crazy, sassy friends and you’ve got it all. It’s a truly family-orientated story and one I thoroughly loved. I read it in one sitting, it a quick read and un-put-downable. I could have read much more about them and was sad when it all ended. Still, I’m sure there’s more on the way, so for now, I’ll have to be satisfied with what I have.

Tempt the Hookup by Natasha Madison is more than a five star read. It’s an ALL THE STAR read. This book is filled with so much goodness. This story will put a smile on your face and a giggle to your day. Luca and Eli are two of my favorites couples I’ve read this year. I’m so happy that Natasha brought us back to the Tempt Series. A second chance romance that has a surprise. Luca and Eli meet on a booze cruise, but what happens seven years later is a surprise to Luca. He can’t believe what he finds out at his bosses cookout. We follow as these two re-connect. We follow as they begin their new “normal”. And what a sweet, sweet ride it is. I couldn’t put this book down. This book is another reason Natasha Madison will always be in my top five automatic one-click author list. *I was given a free advanced copy of this book by the author in exchange for my honest and voluntary review. All thoughts and opinions in this review are those of my own.*

It amazes me just how 'readable' everything that Natasha Madison writes, actually is! Not only does she give us kick a**, swoon worthy heroes and the sassy women who win their hearts but she also gives us a story worth reading. Although I loved Luca and Eli, Aiden stole the show! Alongside a pair of wonderfully supportive families who embrace additions to their family unconditionally, it makes my heart sing to believe there are good people like this in the world, even if they are fictional! Additional humour is of course provided by Luca's buddies. Who doesn't love a bit of college buddy style humour? All in all, another 'not to be missed' addition to the Natasha Madison catalogue.

On your march get set, romance. Tempt the Hookup is a barrel of laughs that borders on temptation and catalogs in at irresistible. Eli and Luca have history. One HOT fling leads to six years of radio silence that culminates into a shocking reveal. Prepare for the hookup that comes back and bites you in the heart.
