She's the tutor I hired to teach me Italian.

She's way too young for me, but she's also gorgeous, bright and filled with a curiosity about life that I find incredibly refreshing.

It's fucking adorable.

I'm old enough to know better, but this pretty young thing tempts me beyond belief. And for the first time in my life, I can see myself falling.

Is this what it's like to be pursued by an older man? The complete confidence, the lack of expectations, the sincerity?

My God, it's exhilarating.

Quinn Kinglsey is totally unexpected. I'm moving to Italy in three weeks to teach English, and while I never expected something so real to develop between us so quickly, our chemistry is explosive.

There's something so sexy about this back and forth he and I share. Flirting with this man is like playing with fire, and I'm bound to get burned.

Io sono attratto da te I'm attracted to you, he tells me.

But is our attraction enough to get us through the complications of a massive age gap and an international love affair? Only one way to find out...

This is book 4 in the Forbidden Desires series, but it can be read as a complete standalone.

(4.5 stars) Quinn and Alessandra’s storyline worked perfectly for this sexy, past paced read. Quinn quickly falls for his new Italian tutor. Alessandra has plans to move to Italy in a few weeks, unbeknownst to Quinn. At times I was so frustrated with Quinn and all I could do is yell “ASK HER TO STAY!!!” Their ending was sweet and perfect.

TEMPTING LITTLE TEASE is the fourth instalment in J. Kenner’s contemporary,adult BLACKWELL-LYON erotic, romance series focusing on the men and women who work for Blackwell-Lyon Security. This is security specialist Leonardo ‘Leo’ Palermo, and technology developer Samantha Watson’s story line. TEMPTING LITTLE TEASE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalments is revealed where necessary. Told from first person perspective (Leo Palermo) TEMPTING LITTLE TEASE follows the best friend’s little sister/fake fiancé relationship between security specialist Leonardo ‘Leo’ Palermo, and Samantha Watson. With the approach of her best friend’s wedding Samantha Watson needs a date for the destination wedding, a wedding where her ex-boyfriend Reg is the cousin of the bride. Enter security specialist Leonardo ‘Leo’ Palermo, Samantha’s brother Brody’s best friend, and the man with whom Samantha has loved for most of her life. Hoping to distract her ex at the upcoming wedding, Samantha makes Leo an offer he cannot refuse. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Leo and Sam, and the potential fall-out as their time together comes with an expiry date. Samantha ‘Sam’ Watson has been in love with her brother’s best friend for most of her life but Leo only saw Sam as Brody’s little sister, a woman off limits in more ways than one. Leo knows that to get involved with Samantha Watson could ruin his friendship with Brody Carrington, a friendship he is willing to risk when he falls in love with our story line heroine. The $ex scenes are intimate and steamy, without the use of over the top,sexually graphic language and text. The colorful and energetic secondary and supporting characters include Sam’s step-brother Brody Carrington, Conor Lyon (Sexy Little Sinner), Cayden Lyon (Pretty Little Player), as well as Sam’s best friend Cherry (the bride), and Sam’s ex boyfriend Reg Thorne. TEMPTING LITTLE TEASE is a story of family, friendship, betrayal and revenge. The premise is engaging and light; the characters are colorful and energetic; the quick building romance is seductive and passionate.

Alessandra is a twenty-two year old nanny that dreams about going to Italy. She has a part time job teaching Italian, that way she makes sure to perfect her language and meet interesting people… such as Quinn Kingsley. She’s serious about her job and passions, and devoted to those she loves. Unfortunately when she happens to meet and older man that immediately takes her breath away (since he’s everything she has dreamed of), she’s about to move to the other side of the world. Quinn is the oldest of the Kingsley brothers. He’s the one everyone relies on, the one in charge of everything, the one that works hard to make sure his family (and business) are well. He’s the responsible one. Therefore he’s also accused of being grumpy, and of giving every one a hard time. But the moment he meet’s Alessandra, who covers his Italian teacher for a number of lessons, he realizes that there was something missing in his life. The relationship between this characters starts growing into love soon enough, but there’s a time limit for them being together, and they both now it. Alessandra doesn’t want everyone stopping her from following her dream, and Quinn knows that asking her to stay isn’t right for any of them. I really enjoyed Quinn and Alessandra’s story. Half the time while I read the book, I wanted to have them admit to themselves how in love they were. But Alessadra was set in fulfilling her dream and I just wanted Quinn to tell her that he would wait for her, go with her, or make her stay and take her there later. None of that happened, but they did get their HEA. Great romance!

## Just so-so for me. I liked the synopsis so much. It sounded so different from the usual 'billionaire king of one night stands falls for the poor waitress'. But it wasn't that different after all: 'Billionaire, owner of an escort service falls for poor nanny.' What I liked: The heroine was beautiful AND capable. The hero didn't say "I don't DO relationships" even once. Their chemistry was spot on. Stand alone. What I didn't like: Too short. Four bucks seems a tad high for 140 pages. No conflict, felt like it was missing something. Didn't like the secondary characters (hero's brothers). Middle of the road for me, 3 stars.

Kendall has done it again! She makes me smile and laugh and feel wistful when I read her story. This one was no different, but there was one thing that made me pause whilst I was reading this. The reason for the pause was because Alessandra just made me think. She had a dream, a dream she was on her way to pursuing and yet something else came into her life. Quinn came into her life. It seems like it was destiny and that it was a real life love story. That feeling when it comes to books for me personally is so very rare. I honestly felt like I was a real true to life love story. The actions, the dialogue, and the emotions were spot on. It was something that really surprised me but I loved feeling it, so I did read the book several times and even now as I’m writing this review, I’m re reading it. This book has had a profound effect on me, so much so that I can’t seem to put this book down, and I don’t think I’d ever want to put this book down. I’m genuinely shocked by the ending of this story though and it just makes me want to read the next book in this series right now! For all Kendall fans, I’m convinced you’re going to love this story just as much as I did! 5 stars!

Be ready to be swept away by another Kingsley brother. Quinn is so romantic and makes you love him from the very beginning of this book. Alessandra is young and has a bright future ahead of her. She has no idea that Quinn is about to turn her life around, in the best possible way. Their chemistry is instant. They are meant to be and this book is so good. I devoured it in one day. Kendall did a great job with Quinn's story. I only wish I could have another book for Quinn and Alessandra, and the other Kingsley brothers. Maybe a book about all three couples and traveling to Rome together... Great job Kendall. I loved it. Enjoy!!!

Tempting Little Tease was a short and romantic read. It is the fourth book in the Forbidden Desires series and the story follows a forbidden romance that will leave you wanting for more. In the story we get to meet Alessandra, a twenty-two year old nanny who happens to be fluent in Italian. One of her dreams is to move to Italy and start a new life there, so she gets as many shifts possible in order to make that happen. Although she is a nanny full-time, she also manages to get a job as an Italian tutor and when one of the tutors falls ill she is called to step in to tutor Quinn Kingsley. She only had three weeks before she was set to leave for Italy, but as soon as she stepped into his office all bets were off and their chemistry was instant. Alessandra knows that she has very limited time with him and when he starts to flirt with her in Italian and doing sweet things for her, she can’t deny him any longer. As co-owner of Forbidden Desires and eldest in the family, Quinn Kingsley knows that he has to take care of his family and all the responsibilities that involve having a successful company. Though he works day and night, he doesn’t have a lot of time to do anything else. He doesn’t know much of his family history other than the fact that his mother was Italian, and that makes him want to learn the language. When his tutor falls ill he is surprised to see Alessandra walk into his office full of energy and beauty. Quinn knows that he is older than her and he should keeps things professional, but he can’t do that when Alessandra agrees to go out with him. Now as the two start to get to know each other, the more he wants to keep her for himself. Yet, there are things that could hurt their relationship and it’ll be up to them to decide if they want to move forward or not. I absolutely loved this story, Kendall Ryan has done an amazing job with the rest of the series and this was no different. I liked the taboo aspect of the book as well, Quinn is relatively older than Alessandra but that is no issue with them when they’re together. I think the fact that he is older makes her feel safer and cherished. On the other hand, Alessandra is full of energy and dreams. She knows what she wants, and she is willing to explore a whole new country on her own. Even though the story was short, it was full of steamy and romantic scenes. I liked how Kendall Ryan described the Italy and how she included Italian phrases throughout the book. We do get to read both perspectives in the story which made it that much more enjoyable and the ending was really sweet. I do wish the author could have of made the story a bit longer, but it still worked out in the end. I would highly recommend reading this book and the others in the series, you will absolutely loved them. :) ***ARC provided in return for an honest review as part of the blog tour.***

Kendall Ryan continues her Forbidden Desires series with Tempting Little Tease a sexy venture between the oldest Kinglsey brother Quinn and the gorgeous and lively Italian tutor who temps him like no other. Quinn Kinglsey’s intention of learning Italian was to feel closer to his roots, he never intended to fall for his much younger substitute tutor, but he finds her interest and vivaciousness refreshing and intoxicating. Despite the age difference, Alessandra is a spitfire more than capable of dealing with the older, confident and mature man. She is a strong, independent young woman whose dreams of living abroad are finally coming true in less than a month but finds the attraction between herself and Quinn equally exhilarating and inescapable. Will it be one last hurrah before she leaves or will their budding relationship be strong enough to overcome the distance? Ryan is an expert at writing fun, sexy and easy to read stories that leave the reader smiling and Tempting Little Tease is no exception. The balance between the forbidden because of the age difference, the romance and relationship is spot on. The lightheartedness because of Quinn’s clumsy attempts at seducing Alessandra in Italian is endearing, the relationship is handled with maturity on both ends, the romantic grand gesture is swoony and the steam between them is sweltering hot. I only with I’d gotten a bit more of these characters, including Quinn’s brothers and their significant others who we get updates on. I honestly thought Ryan would be wrapping up the series with the book, but fans will be delighted that with the ends which leaves the series open to at least one more installment. Tempting Little Tease is book #4 of the Forbidden Desires series by Kendall Ryan. It is a standalone contemporary romance. Told from both points of view with a happily ending, no cliffhanger.

I'm not going to lie. In all of the books in the Forbidden Desires series by author Kendall Ryan, it was Quinn Kingsley that caught my eye. Quinn, the eldest brother, Quinn the somewhat mysterious one that keeps things close to the vest, Quinn, the brother that doesn't have a revolving door of women at the ready. So, color me excited when TEMPTING LITTLE TEASE came along, the book that would finally give some insight into this man. Now, let me begin by saying that, while I'm sure that love at virtually first sight exists, I'm not the biggest fan of insta-anything. You know, I like the build, the slow burn, the finessing of the relationship. But, this is Quinn. And because it's Quinn, and because Kendall Ryan saved the best for last, well, this story works just wonderfully for me. When the disparity in age between Quinn and Alessandra was made clear, I'm pretty sure that my eyebrows reached my hairline. I mean, come on, Kendall, were you really going to play that card? But, the more I read, and the more I got to know both of these characters, well, it just worked. These two are truly an example of age only being a number, because they are just perfect for each other, and their story just made me happy. It was a pleasure, as always, to see grumpy Gavin, snarky Cooper, and their lovely wives, because these brothers together are what make this series such a fun one. They are great foils for each other, and I really hope that we haven't seen the last of them. Kendall, if you're seeing this, take note. ;-) TEMPTING LITTLE TEASE is a spontaneous, fun, full-of-life little read, and it more than earns an easy 4 stars. While you don't have to read these books in order, it helps to know the personalities at play, but TLT and the others can be read as standalones. With just the right mix of steam and sweetness, this is a book that belongs on romance TBRs. Grab it and divertiti!

I love forbidden stories, and this one, with the hero a lot older than the heroine was a lot of fun. When a forbidden romance works, they are some of my favorite romances, as there is just something so interesting about a relationship that society also frowns on. Quinn is 38, Alessandra is 22. And, from the moment they meet there is an attraction between them. Quinn recognizes this, and pursues her anyway, as this woman makes him feel a way that no other woman has. The relationship, the sex and the romance, were compelling. You are engaged with them, and you believe their attraction. His attempts to seduce her in Italian, and the wrong words he adorably uses, are perfect. And, it lets you know who he is, that he is willing to make himself vulnerable if he cares about the person he is talking to, or interacting with. I loved that Quinn allows Alessandra to be who she is, he doesn't try to stop her from following her dreams. And, I love that, at the end of the book, the reason that they work and that you believe they will last, is because they handle the relationship in a mature adult way that makes you forget that she is young, and that he is a lot older than her. The end of this book is wonderful. I love that Quin knows Alessandra well enough to care about her dream, and to make sure that he finds a way for them to be together and for her to still have her dream of Italy. I enjoyed this title, and I recommend it.

Finally, Quinn is here and he is just as amazing and I thought he would be. This story pulled at my heart strings so much! I'm not huge on insta-love situations, but it was so fitting and perfect for this book. I mean, Quinn was always the mystery in with the family! Having this book in your hands is bittersweet with knowing all their stories are now told! You will want to grab this book and never put it down!

have been waiting impatiently for Quinn’s story, and it didn’t disappoint. It was wonderful to meet the real Quinn, as the older brother he has always been the steady one that puts his brothers first. Let’s face it, who would be good enough to bring his lighter side to fore. Kendall Ryan is a genius, Alessandra was perfect so full of life, the perfect balance to Quinn. This a wonderful light romance brimming with love, and delightful to read. Still incredibly hot and definitely a sexy tempting little tease. So Grap a copy and enjoy a SEXY Little tease I loved it and It left my with a large smile on my face. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A cute, quick, full of humor and sexy romantic read to this series. Alessandra and Quinn had me smiling like a goober with their funny interactions. Their chemistry was sexy and sweet. They both came together and brought out the qualities that had them shining. Great Love story to start off the Spring season right!

Forbidden temptation! We've been enjoying him from afar for awhile now, and finally we get to get Quinn's story! The beginning of this Forbidden Desires series was super intense, a little seedy and secretive. With the last couple of brother's stories, it's mellowed out some and while they are still super alpha and sexy, they are more laid back and the story stays calmer. I have enjoyed the entire series! The characters of this one are really easy to like and the story flows quickly. There isn't a lot of strife, but the love story is sweet and sexy. I really enjoyed it! The bad boys of Forbidden Desires return with Quinn Kingsley's story. He knows she's way too young for the likes of him, but he simply cannot resist his sweet little Italian tutor. He has to make her his! Alessandra is planning the move of a lifetime, but she never expected to meet a man like Quinn just beforehand. He's successful, he's sexy as all get out, and he really, really wants to be with HER! What's a girl to do??

So how stuffy is Quinn? When his tutor in Italian shows up as beautiful Alessandra, it seems he’s not stuffy at all. As the oldest Kingsley brother, he seems to keep himself in check more with a reserved persona. But Alessandra sparks a light in him as he is surprised by her intelligence and the immediate comfort he has conversing with her in Italian. Alessandra doesn’t expect the sexy businessman she is sent to tutor and struggles to keep her attraction to him hidden. The chemistry is wonderful between Quinn and Alessandra as they turn tutoring lessons into a few dates. The biggest challenge for Quinn is that Alessandra is headed to Italy to live and work in a few weeks. Can he let her go? Will Alessandra follow her dream and leave Quinn? There are so many fun, sexy moments with this couple, including the family dinner. I loved being swept away in their romantic journey.

4.5 STARS! This story made my heart so happy! Quinn & Alessandra have not only an undeniable burning chemistry, but a beautiful and heartfelt intimacy that made me warm all over! A beautiful story with a reminder that every journey in life is sweeter with someone you love at your side.

Tempting Little Tease is my favorite of the Forbidden Desires series. I love Quinn, he's the best. He's the sweetest, most caring, and nicest of the Kingsley brothers and therefore my favorite. I loved being in his head and seeing things from his perspective. I enjoyed the storyline and how Quinn and Alessandra meet and just click. Even though they have a big age gap, they have a lot in common and just make sense for one another. The book is fast paced with their relationship growing quickly. The end was just a little too fast paced. I would have liked a little more on what exactly they have planned for the future. Other than that it was a very good read!

Alessandra and Quinn kicked a$% in their romance and I am still swooning over them! Tempting Little Tease brings us Quinn's story. I always thought that because he kept to himself and was broody, he had a big bad secret behind his eyes. Nope, he was just working a lot and living minute by minute in the world. I loved Alessandra instantly! She was sweet as pie being a Nanny and having huge dreams of wanting more. When she is unexpectedly meeting Quinn, you could feel the chemistry. I was all smiles with their interaction. My cheeks burned when their sexy moments came across the pages, and hot dayum were they off the charts! Tempting Little Tease is a great story for Quinn! I loved him and saw that he was caring, smart, and sexy! A great package if you ask me. Alessandra was ready to take on the world and never saw Quinn coming. Together they are perfect!

From start to finish, this book was the perfect telling of Quinn’s story that readers eagerly craved! Tempting Little Tease is a delicious, enticing, and enjoyable quick read! This is book 4 in the Forbidden Desires series, but can be read as a complete standalone, although I HIGHLY RECOMMEND reading the previous books as they are utterly fantastic! Up until now, we’ve known very little about Quinn Kingsley. This book dives right into the heart of his character and shows readers a deeper and entirely more emotional side to Quinn that we never knew he possessed. And when he meets the vivacious and mature Alessandra, we get to enjoy the flirtatious and joyous qualities that we haven’t seen from him. Both characters bring out the very best in each other. Their dynamic and chemistry cause sparks to fly immediately, and to see their characteristics grow not just together, but individually as well, was a strength to the storyline. But what I really enjoyed was Alessandra’s drive to pursue her dreams and ambitions. Even at the cost of letting the love of her life go, she was willing to take a chance on the unknown. And for Quinn to realize how important her goals were to her, he sacrifices his own love and happiness for her. Tempting Little Tease is a sweet, heartwarming, and heat-blazing love story with an entertaining storyline. If you liked the previous books in the series, then you definitely don’t want to pass up this book! 5 Stars!

What an enjoyable and loving story. It was told with both pov's but for the first time in a long time I actually felt for the male POV Quinn .is much older than Alessandra but he doesn't let that stop him from getting close to her. In the back of his mind he only has a short amount of time until she leaves for Italy. He is such an amazing character and one you will fall for instantly. No wonder Alessandra fell for him. They fit together despite their age difference. It never really becomes a factor in their relationship. Of course he gets teased by his brothers but it is done with love but also lets him know that they are there for him especially knowing that she is leaving in a short time. They treat each other as equals. Even when he takes her to one of the galas he has to attend she is able to hold her own. You would never think that she is only 22 years old. She may be young but she is a mature 22 year old. Whether it is with his clients or his brothers and their wives you would never think she was so young and they had such a large age gap between them. Their relationship grows in such a short time but love doesn't follow a time clock. The heart wants what the heart wants. And Quinn's heart wants Alessandra. But will he expect her to give up her dreams and stay for him. Alessandra too has developed feelings for Quinn but are they enough to give up her dream. Will she regret it if she gives up her dream of going to Italy and stays with Quinn. She is beyond happy now but will that fade over time and make her regret her decision. Or will this be the start of their forever.

4.5 Stars! “I’m hungry, starving, and I didn’t know it until it was right in front of me. Until he was right in front of me. “ Tempting Little Tease is a story that is impossible to not fall in love with. From the moment you meet Quinn and Alessandra, they will consume and captivate you. They will suck you into their story and have you falling hopelessly in love… Tempting Little Tease is a fabulous addition to the Forbidden Desires Series. I loved getting to know more about Quinn and seeing this high powered, overworked CEO, fall. He was sweet and sexy and just everything that I wanted him to be. I loved Alessandra as a match for him. She was young, beautiful and had the world at her feet. Together, they couldn’t be more opposite, but somehow these two just clicked. And I couldn’t wait to devour their story. It’s no surprise that I fell for Quinn and Alessandra quickly. These two had amazing chemistry and I loved their banter. I loved their exchanges in Italian and I just loved how effortless these two were. There wasn’t any over the top, crazy drama. They just fell in love when they weren’t looking for it and that made me a total gonner. Tempting Little Tease is a beautiful love story about two people who fell in love when they least expected it. It is a story about the plans you make and the differences in reality. It is a story about being open to change and taking a chance on that epic, once in a lifetime love. I loved every moment of this book from beginning to end and fell head over heels for Alessandra and Quinn….

Loved, loved, loved this book. From the first page when we meet Alessandra I was hooked. Even though she is quite a bit younger than Quinn they were perfect for each other. Alessandra never came across as too young or immature so that made her a perfect match for Quinn. And I was taken with Quinn from book one when we met him, the silent workaholic older brother. I liked both Gavin and Cooper but Quinn’s story, I think, was my favorite. This was another great book about the Kingsley brothers and hope to read more about them.
