Brittan McKenna’s life was perfect. After getting engaged to her high school sweetheart her happily ever after seemed to be all planned out. However after 9/11 her fiancée drops out of college to enlist; Brittan’s life takes a swift turn. After enjoying a heartfelt reunion with Cane when he returned from his first tour, her joy was short lived as tragedy struck. Cane was killed in the line of duty during his second tour in Iraq. However after years of longing and pining for her dearly deceased, will her heart be able to beat again for another? Will she be able to take a leap of faith?
On the day Cane died, Brittan believed her heart had died along with him.......or so she thought until her passion for music causes her to blaze a new trail testing fate and “tempting tomorrow”.
Eight years marks the anniversary of Cane’s death when Brittan sets eyes upon Jordon; a guitarist whose shrouded in mystery and a world class bad boy for her bands opening act, Tempting Tomorrow. Will he have that spark to set Brittan’s heart a light? Does he have what it takes to win her heart and to make her love again?
Falling for a rock star is a dangerous game, but it’s a hopeless task when you both have hidden demons.
For Jordon love does not exist... not until he meets the lovely Brittan who has the power to tame the untameable beast inside of him.
Will Brittan open her heart to love or will she sabotage the relationship before it even has a chance?
As tears begin to fall again, I laugh nervously, “Who are you and what did you do with the cocky asshole I met in Miami? He was easier to hate.”
A killer grin spreads across Jordon’s face, as his eyes twinkle in the lights above us. They are hypnotizing and causing me to fall deeper under his spell, “Ahh, so you admit my irresistible rock god looks and my magic fingers are winning you over?”
The thought of what those fingers have done to me sends a shiver of desire coursing through my body and stopping between my thighs, only to intensify.
He teasingly slides his fingers ever so slowly down my arm, causing goose bumps to blanket every inch of me.
Trying to act like he isn’t getting to me, I toss my head back and purse my lips, “I never said that…I just said I don’t hate you as much as I did a few weeks ago.”
Pinning me on my back, Jordon stares down at me with a glimmer of desire in his eyes that takes my breath away. His lips curl up into a cocky grin, “Oh, baby. There’s no denying it, you like me. I can see it in those gorgeous brown eyes of yours.” Leaning down he presses a soft kiss to the tip of my nose causing me to suck in a sharp breath of air. Pulling back he watches me, as he waits for me to try and deny it some more.
He gets a rise out of our back and forth bantering, but I’m going to surprise him by admitting what he already knows to be true. He deserves a little ego boost after the fantastic day he’s given me.
“Okay…maybe a little.” I say breathlessly, as my chest rises and falls at a rapid pace. I melt under Jordon’s intense gaze.
“Holy shit! She finally admits it! She likes me!” Jordon shouts, shooting up and raising his hands in the air.
I HEART BOOKS REVIEW
Review by Theresa Esterline
OMG! I knew I wanted to read this as I loved Danielle's Savannah series and I couldn't resist Storm Bailey on the cover - he has the most beautiful blue eyes, just like our Rock Star, Jordan Valentine! This is a stand alone new book just released! It will have you bawling your eyes out, falling for the cocky rock star, and cheering our heroine, Brittan, onto victory and happiness. And now a bit about the story...
The prologue starts off a little in the past and tells us Brittan has lost the love of her life, Cane. Then as part of her therapy she goes back and remembers all their good times and bad from the time they meet until he dies. Now remember back on page one, Danielle tells us Cane is going to die. Still, I cried myself to sleep ~ I was so hooked on Cane even though I knew what was coming it still ripped my heart out. But don't despair, it isn't all sad ... as we come back to present day we meet the cocky guitar playing Jordan who will be touring with Brittan and her bandmates. The attraction is instant, though they fight it ... watch them battle their wills and see if temptation can bring Brittan the happiness she deserves and that Cane wants her to have.
Favorite passages:- He took my breath away with just one look and stole my heart all at the same time.
- "I love you too. I want nothing more than to take your hand and walk you to the other side, but baby, it’s not your time. I didn’t put my life on the line and die just so you could throw your life away."
- "For right now, we’re just having fun, and I guess we’ll see where things go. But I hope that it will lead to more." I can’t believe I actually said that out loud at a concert.
- "Like I told Roxie earlier, baby I’ll take you any way I can have you. If that means I only get a piece of your heart, then I’ll cherish that one piece as if it is the most priceless item on the god damn planet."
