Ahhh, Jax. Tall, dark and delicious? What more can a girl ask for? This was a nice, quick read involving entertaining banter, lots of sexual innuendo, with heart warming moments. Sydney is an entertaining woman with quirks I'd probably scratch my head at (forks and chocolate...) while Jax works to break her out of her controlled shell. I enjoyed this latest book from Angela Corbett. I'm also hopeful that we'll see a story featuring Brynn and her research ;-)

Angela does a great job mixing a budding romance with a fulfilling story. Sydney is easy to relate to and lose yourself in. I didn't want to put it down!

There were times when it felt the pace of the characters relationship was a little odd. But the chemistry was hot throughout and it was hard to put the book down!

I thought that the plot of this book seemed interesting. What I expected was the oft-told tale of an innocent woman tempted out of her cocoon by a bad boy. What I got was a lot more. Sydney is a level-headed and studious woman. She is on a path, in her own mind, to greatness through law school. She has given up on men, or dating anyway. Until she meets Jax. He is the mechanic working on her car and she is seduced by his body and his eyes. He tempts her to step outside of her rigidly constructed world. And Sydney is beyond tempted, but she feels like her goals and relationship are mutually exclusive…one cannot exist with the other. Can Jax show her differently? First of all, the best thing about this book is the characters. I was SO glad to read about a female heroine who was not an innocent virgin with no clue about the world. Sydney knows about the world, which has led her to make the choices that she does. She was a refreshing character and a great female lead. And Jax….oh lawdy. Jax is a freakin’ dream. I doubt that a man like that actually exists in the world, if I’m being honest. And if he does, the woman who has him (because he’s undoubtedly taken) is one lucky ho. Seriously…Jax is awesome. He is everything that you could ever want in a book boyfriend. He’s introverted, but has a lot of depth. Discovering him, and his secrets, right along with Sydney was quite a journey and more than I expected when I opened up this book. I also really liked the connection between Sydney and Jax. There was a great build up between them and the scenes between them were hot. It really left the voyeuristic pervert in me satisfied. Overall, this was a great book. It had a lot more depth than I expected, and it ran me through the whole gamut of emotions. I seriously could not put it down. 4.5 stars.

Tempting Sydney is a very good story, filled with playful banter, friendship and helping one another discover who they are and helping overcome the past. I was skeptical about reading this story but I am glad I did. It’s very interesting and entertaining. I love Jax’s character, primarily because I could relate to him being closed off and not letting people in. He’s a very fun person, very caring, even when he didn’t know much about Sydney. Sydney is an organized and controlled woman. She eats chocolate with fork and knife! Yes, people, it goes to that extreme. But Jax enters this woman’s life and starts “tempting” her to get out of her comfort zone and try new things, to really get herself out there. The conversations these two characters would have had smiling all the time I would read about them. And don’t even get me started with Brynn. She is my favorite character of this story. I really love her and I hope the second book tells her story because it will be FUN to read.

Tempting Sydney (Tempting #1) by Angela Corbett 5 of 5 Stars Corbett had me nearly in tears with laughter from the very first page!!!!! Not the entire book is comedic but it is definitely quite humorous at times. Tempting Sydney is a beautiful tale of two young, very different, individuals who find something that neither had immediate plans to include in their lives- love. Sydney is an extremely focused and bright young law student who is determined to put her future career ahead of everything, including forming any new relationships or inviting anyone new into her heart. Jax is a brilliant, hunky mechanic who's been put through the wringer at a young age, causing him to shut off his emotions and refusing to allow anyone to see the real "him." Thanks to She-Ra, Sydney's '69 Camaro and her tendency to need a mechanic at least once a week, Jax was thrown into Sydney's world and made her rethink everything that she thought was normal in her safe and predictable life. Give me a beautiful, yet undependable classic car and see if I don't start cruising to look for hot mechanics to fix it....... I cannot imagine how frustrating Jax's personality is to Syd. She takes a risk by allowing him into her life and he continues to shut down when anything deeper than a "surface" conversation arises. This man makes me want to slap him silly because he is so DIFFICULT!!!!! Sexy, yes. But infinitely more difficult than any human being should have a right to be. Every time Sydney tries to get him to open up and share more with her, he pushes her farther away. Regardless of how much she reaches out to him, he refuses to open his heart and mind to her.  However infuriating this may be, Sydney continues to reach out to Jax and even, for the first time in a long time, considers a relationship with him. I can't say that I blame her..... Jax is delicious!! Seriously, this fella is sex on legs with an amazing sense of humor to put the cherry on top of the whole great big sexy package that is Jackson West. I love this tale because of the determination of these two people and the paths that their lives took them down to get to the emotional states in which they are now. I love that everything, no matter how small, plays into the development of the characters and their growth as individuals and as a couple.  I love books in which our new friends are from a normal walk of life instead of something outlandish such as a CEO or a rich girl who came into money at a young age. It's definitely refreshing to be able to relate to them instead of being in awe of their lifestyles and possessions. I think that the hilarity of She-Ra and her repeated mishaps are some of my favorite things about Tempting Sydney. Will she ever get fixed?!?!? *A complimentary copy was received in exchange for an honest review.* Meagan, My Secret Book Spot

This was the first book I read by Angela Corbett.  I found it refreshing and funny.  Sydney and Jax have an undeniable connection. Living vicariously through her bestie Brynn just isn't going to cut it anymore.  She needed to experience life on her own & then there is Jax.  I loved the way this story developed and the dynamic between the characters kept you wanting to know more. Who doesn't just want to let go sometimes and when there is a smokin hot guy around ~ why not! I look forward to reading more from Ms. Corbett! Again, another great book to curl up with! Pick up now & experience Sydney &  Jax ~ they do not disappoint! ~Shauna~ Daydream Believer Book Blog
