. 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.

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 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 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!

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.
