***Sandy B's Review of Far Too Tempting by Lauren Blakely***

Jane Black has written the breakup album of the century, earning her a Grammy, a huge legion of new fans, and the pressure to repeat her success. Sure, the heartbreak from her husband’s unconventional abandonment might have been her inspiration, but it hasn’t done her any favors in the dating department. So when Matthew Harrigan, the toughest music journalist out there, asks for an interview, Jane agrees—as long as her personal life is completely off-limits. 

British, gorgeous, and way too tempting, Matthew’s the first guy Jane’s been attracted to since her husband. As she spends more time with him and their relationship heats up, though, so does her writer’s block. How can the queen of the break up pen the perfect follow-up when she’s seriously in love?

Sandy B's Review
Jane Black’s husband has come to the realization that he’s gay! He drops this bomb and then walks out on her and their son.  This life altering event gives Jane exactly what she needs to do an Adele.  Her 4th album turns out to be the charm – a runaway hit – full of songs of heartache, broken dreams and her angst.  This is what brings Matthew Harrigan into her orbit.  He’s a reporter and Jane is the hottest thing to hit the music scene.  The newly minted Grammy Award winner is feeling the pressure to deliver the next big hit.  Matthew is English, handsome, charming and will have you looking at peaches in a whole new different way. 
I confess that I own and have enjoyed all of Lauren Blakely’s books.  They are enjoyable reads that are smexy, angsty, funny and hot without walking on the dark side.  This week it was exactly what I needed.
Without giving anything away, I will say that in my eyes, Far too Tempting is not just the story of a man and a woman trying everything they can do deny the fireworks going off between them.  It’s about letting go of the past and moving forward.  It’s about the love of friends and family.  It’s about digging deep, even though it might hurt, to discover that you are stronger than you thought you were.  It’s about realizing that your biggest tragedy can turn out to be your greatest blessing.  It’s about all those things tied up in a sexy awesome big fat bow.  Jane is spirited and just adorable.  Matthew is totally swoon worthy.  If you haven’t read anything by Lauren Blakely before – please give this one a try.  I think you’re gonna like it!
