Jane Black has written the break-up 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?

I’m starting to really like books that take what’s becoming the norm, and switch it up. Far Too Tempting does just that. Our heroine, Jane is an up and coming rock star and the hero, Mathew a hot English music journalist.
I liked this book. It was just enough angst with equal parts of sweet and sexy. It made for a quick read. It made for a contented read. I was left satisfied and isn’t that the point of reading?
The ‘unconventional’ break-up for her marriage is not one you see in many books. At least not that I’ve read. It was a different take on being dumped. I couldn’t sympathize, not really except for maybe the emotions she felt. She was happy, thought they were happy and was blindsided. I totally understood why she felt rejected. She was rejected. They have a little boy together and that just made it harder. No one want to break up their family.
As ‘unconventional’ as it was, it did lead to Jane’s best album ever and came with the title Queen of Break-Ups. As she’s faced with having to write a new album she struggles to figure out what that’s going to be. She’s alone and not quite over her broken marriage. How does she write anything exciting? In comes Mathew the hot journalist who wants to write a story about her.
As they heat up so does the book. There were some great lines.
“Forget liquid heat. This is molten lava. My hair even feels hot.”
Now that’s some good sexy times. I mean her hair felt hot! I want hot hair!
Mathew is sweet. He’s sexy, he’s kind, he’s taken with Jane. Oh and he’s English! Even better right? But Jane’s not sure she can trust him. Does he just shower her with attention because he was a story. Or will he dump her too like her ex? She has to learn to trust and that’s really hard. Especially, when she wants to be love, wants to me in love. Especially when she needs to write another album.
I enjoyed the side characters, especially the relationship with her brother Owen. It was nice to see a brother/sister bond like they had.
I think all in all this book is about learning to trust again. Learning to trust yourself and allowing yourself to trust others.
