Release Day Blitz & Review-- Be My Temptation by Rachel Brookes

Be My Banner

Title: Be My Temptation
Series: Book 2 of The Crawford Brothers (can be read as a standalone).
Author: Rachel Brookes
Release Date: June 29th 2015



One night connected them. 
One decision separated them. 
One craving tempted them. 

Ashlyn Hart was done with men, or at least those outside of her books. After stupidly falling for the charms of her cheating ex and having her heart broken yet again, she decided to create a new life. One that involved a career change, a new wardrobe, and the possibility of moving abroad. There was just one hurdle: the confident, stubborn and insanely-tempting Josh Crawford. 

Josh Crawford hid behind the cliché bachelor lifestyle and a never-ending parade of women. He knew the game and played it well, but the night he tasted perfection four years ago never left him. Back then, he made a spur of the moment decision, one that he has battled with ever since. But beneath the playboy façade was a yearning that wouldn’t disappear. A craving for the only woman who could bring him to his knees: Ashlyn Hart. 

Two weeks changes everything. 
One night unravels the deepest of desires. 
A simple taste unleashes memories that can’t be tamed. 

When the girl who dreams of a happily ever after collides with the guy who lives the ultimate cliffhanger, what ending awaits them? Will fear overshadow love? Will the past play hindrance to the future, or will temptation conquer it all?

My 5-Star Review

"She tempted from the very moment I laid eyes on her."

"He was my friend, my first, my torment, and my secret temptation."

I have been anticipating this book! I knew it would be amazing--and boy was it!!

Josh Crawford and Ashlyn Hart are a force to be reckoned with!! I'm a huge supporter of "friends-to-lovers" stories. This one has just became one of my absolute favorites!!

I love how Josh and Ashlyn played cat and mouse for so many years. Their bantor and how they play off each other makes you wish for that type of friendship. Even if they get on each others nerves...you can tell it's all because they fear getting too close.

"He was a walking, talking, breathing, annoyance to my libido, and that was where the problem lay."

"You have a body that makes men want to sin."

When they become temporary roommates, their desire--their secret Temptation--can't be kept secret for much longer. I can not tell you how much I enjoyed watching them fall for each other more and more!! 

"Let me go, Josh."
"Like hell, I'll let you go. I've done that once before, and I'm not doing it again."

Let me just tell you!! Joshy and Ashy are HOT together!! I'm not talking just simply fanning yourself hot. I'm talking about grab the fan, a gallon of water, and some ice to cool you down...SO...FREAKIN...HAWT!!!

Rachel Brookes!!! 
Three words...YOU *snap* GO *snap* GIRL *snap*!!! I bow down to you for those scenes. Lawd!

"All ability to breath was lost as he stole everything from me. His mouth owned me, claimed me, devoured me, and I couldn't think of anywhere else I'd rather be."

In true Rachel form, this book also had a serious undertone. There was heartbreak, scary situations, friendships that are tested, and heart stopping moments that left you breathless!

I really enjoyed the emotion that came through both Josh and Ashlyn in their POVs. You cheered them both on, wanted to smack them when they were being silly, and wanted to hold them when they needed it. They were each worth fighting for but the battle was not easy

This book was just purely wonderful! Not only were Josh and Ashlyn amazing, but seeing so many familiar characters made this story even better! The relationship between Ashlyn, Josh, Ky, and Eden was one for the books (See what I did there). I wanted to be in their world so much! In a way I actually was:)

Thank you, Rachel! You made me fall in love with your characters once again and I've fallen for you just a little bit more as an author! Well done! #TEAMJOSLYN

"Right now, I feel like I'm falling."
"Let me catch you, Ashy."
