What do you do when your whole life crashes and burns? How do you get through the flames?

Tatum Thompson is living the dream. Her life is perfect; with a loving boyfriend, loving parents and a soon to be college graduate how can life get better? Life is good until it isn't. When tragedy strikes Tatum runs to Josh only to find him in a compromising position with someone else. Turning away from the only life she knew, Tatum is forced to alter her life plan. 

Blaise Richards is a tattoo artist who moonlights as a volunteer fire fighter. Lies and deception leave his broken heart closed until the beautiful green eyed girl casts her spell over him. She’s making him feel things he’s never felt. Making him want things he thought he would never want. 

Tatum wants Mr. just for tonight. 

Blaise wants Tatum to be his forever.

Can Mr. Just for tonight convince Tatum that she’s the one? How long can Tatum resist Blaise’s determination to make her his?



Tempting Tatum was phenomenal! Once I started it I could not put it down. Literally, my kids almost didn’t get dinner because I was so absorbed in this book. Blaise is on the top of my book boyfriend list! Talk about HOT!!! Not only is he an inked up tattoo artist, but he is also a volunteer firefighter! He is a man who is not afraid to go after what he wants and he wants Tatum. Tatum has been through so much in such a short period of time and it is hard for her to open up and trust. But Blaise takes his time and slowly gets Tatum to open up.
Kaylee’s writing was awesome! I was sucked in and could feel all the emotions that both Tatum and Blaise felt. The lineup of secondary characters was amazing as well. I loved Ember, Blaise’s sister and Tatum’s roommate! Pick up this book and read it now!! You will not be disappointed!

There are times you need a break from reality and want something that will make you sigh and smile, well Tempting Tatum did just that for me. It was a sweet loving story allowing your self to have a second chance at love.
At the beginning of the book we get to see Tatum having to deal with not one but two horrible things in her life and it's heartbreaking. Due to the heartbreak Tate decides to make the move with her BF Leah & Leah's fiancee Brent to a new state. That was the best decision she could have made because that is where she finally gives her heart to someone that deserves it and she finally finds her HEA.
Blaise, a sexy, hunky, southern gentleman with ink on him that own his own tatoo shop with his brother ans is also a volunteer firefighter, can we say Blaising HOT...yes I went there :-) As we get to know him he's a southern gentleman, raised to be polite but also a fierce protector of those he loves. Blaise was betrayed by the one he loved so he wasn't looking for love, that is until he saw Tatum. 
When Tatum & Blaise see each other for the first time you see the sparks between them but for Tatum she is wary because she just had her heart stomped on and is afraid to give it away again. We get to see Blaise taking every opportunity to get to know all of Tatum and he wants her to trust him with her heart. Like I mentioned it was a sweet romantic story and the sex scenes where beautifully written. There is drama with both ex's and at one point I was talking to my kindle saying don't believe her, not after what he's proven to you!! I loved seeing their relationship blossom and seeing Tatum's walls around her heart finally breaking down and allowing Blaise to have her whole heart. Balise's family is awesome and so is Leah Tatum's BF. I am a big sucker for Epilogue's and boy did I have a Big O Smile on me :-) I'm a big sucker for HEA and this one did not disappoint! Thank you Kaylee Ryan and can't wait for what else you have in store for us.

Tempting Tatum is a standalone novel from Kaylee Ryan, and my what a novel it was.

I did dislike that this book was an insta-love book, but when you read it you understand why it was. The Richards men know when they meet 'the one' and it's instant love from that first look. They really do believe in love at first sight.

Blaise, the hot tattooed fireman, knows what he wants and he goes after it not stopping until he gets it. Blaise has dealt with unforeseen heartache in his time but Tate fixes that all up.

Tatum (Tate), hasn't had an easy life. After losing her parents she gets up the courage to move on to a new life in Tennessee where she meets Nancy Richards, the mother of Blaise. From that moment on, her life will never be the same.

Tempting Tatum was a four star book for me. The insta-love was a bit much for me but all the characters were great. I was glad to see that Kaylee included the other characters just as much as the main characters.

Tatum POV  

Blaise has stepped up his seduction tactics.  He’s constantly touching me, giving me sweet gentle kisses.  His attention has me on fire.  I’m ready to take him to the nearest storage closet or bathroom and take full advantage of what he’s offering.

He’s marking his claim for the night, and really, he doesn’t need to.  I plan to allow him to seduce me.  My earlier thoughts coming to mind.  I know I shouldn’t since he is Ember’s brother, but I want him.  I want to know what it feels like to feel his weight on top of me.  To be able to trace his ink with my tongue.  I can no longer resist his charms, or seduction techniques, whatever you want to call it.  I just don’t want to resists him any longer.  I want one night with him.  One night of passion and no thoughts of what I lost.  I just want him.  With that thought, I relax against him.  Blaise releases my hand and slips his arm around my waist to hold me against him.  I need a drink!  

Kaylee Ryan has had a passion for reading since she was a little girl. That passion has slowly led to spinning romantic tales, and a one-click addiction. When she doesn’t have her nose stuck in her kindle or fingers glued to the keyboard, you can find Kaylee hanging out with friends and family. She loves all genres of music, and enjoys scrapbooking. She lives in Ohio with her husband (her real life happily ever after) and their rambunctious little boy.
