Publisher's Summary

He's my best friend’s older brother, off limits and incredibly tempting.

I shouldn't peek into Brendon’s sketchbook, even if the tattoo artist is as brooding and stoic as the day is long.

I can't help myself. I peel it open, run my fingers along the paper, soak up every ounce of him. His drawings are as beautiful and bold as his dark eyes and his cocky smile. Only, there, on the third page - that’s no tattoo mockup.

That's me. Naked. Ready. Waiting in his bed. There's no denying it - those are my blue glasses, my green eyes, my flushed cheeks. Brendon wants me. The smoking hot, 10,000 miles out of my league bad boy wants me - a good girl v*rgin with thick glasses and no game. It's perfect. Only it's not. He's my best friend's older brother. He's off limits. But damn is he tempting. 

A complete stand-alone

Falling for the tattoo artist....

Kaylee is about to start college when her parents inform her that they’re moving to the east coast to be with her grandmother. They don’t go into detail about that but they have made arrangements for her to stay with her bff and her brother.
Brendan has a thing for Kaylee but he is mindful of the 8 yr age difference. Having Kaylee living with him and his sister will make it all that more difficult. Maybe buying the tattoo parlor, where he works will be the perfect distraction. That seems to be working until Kaylee reads his journal and sees erotic drawings of Brendan & herself. The pair embark on a secret affair...but will it last when it cones to light? Besides, Kaylee has a huge secret that keeps her from being all-in! Will there be an HEA for Kaylee and Brendan? Beautiful story, although some parts did drag a bit...still worth the read-listen.

Fantastic!

An amazing story of a broken woman told with emotion. Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross were the perfect narrators. They brought out each word with passion.

I liked it.

I’m a fan of best friend sibling romances. The 8 years age difference did not bother me. Brandon was responsible guy. He kept referring to Kay as he was supposed to be her guardian. What 18 year old high school graduate needs a guardian? Kay was very immature and that I believe is what put me off on the romance. Her and the best friend were obsessed with Disney movies. I skipped through a lot of the “best friend” talks. Em was annoying. I do not understand why Kay just didn’t say I don’t wanna to talk about my “sex” life with you right now. When I want to talk I’ll come to you but for now drop it. Don’t lie. Which also shows a bit of immaturity.
Some of the book repeat phrases and words KILLED me. “closer- closer- closer.” Over and over. “Yes we get it fingers are almost to that spot. Yes his tongue his almost to that spot. I think liked the story. I was the female was a tad more mature. I didn’t have to hear about an adult loving Disney movies while reading an adult book.
I think the narrators did a good job. I would listen to them again.

It's a loving story but also heartbreaking too

I could not stop listening it's story lines like this that draw me in and keeps me hooked it has its ups and downs and shows that even the sweet always smiling girl can feel broken inside just like I do i can really relate to her and her dark thoughts and that is what i loved most she found her other broken half and to me it shows me hope

Can Broken Souls Find Love?

Brendon & Kaylee are both broken in different ways. Brendon is 8 years older than Kaylee and is still dealing with all the harsh things his mom said to him & the way she made him feel worthless. She left him thinking he wasn't good enough for a girl like Kaylee or that he'd never amount to anything. Been a became legal guardian of his little sister Emma after their parents died. He was determined he would never great Emma the way his mom did him, but he did come to see some of his moms ways of thinking. Kaylee is Emma's best friend & has been around forever. Kaylee has been crazy about Brendon for a long time but she knows he only sees her as a kid, or does he?
The night of Kaylee's 18th birthday Brendon starts to struggle with feelings & thoughts he's been having of Kaylee. He wants her but he thinks she's too good for someone like him.
Kaylee's battling depression but no one knows this, and this makes her feel unworthy of being loved and she's afraid Brendon won't want someone who's broken. Kaylee is also dealing with the fact that her other best friend her grandmother is dying, which has forced her parents to move to where she lives to take care of her leaving Kaylee to live with Emma & Brendon since she's starting college in just a few weeks.
So much to overcome, can Brendon & Kaylee find happiness?
This is my first time to read/listen to one of Crystals Kaswell books and I really enjoyed it. I though the narrators did a wonderful job & I would listen to them again:)
I loved all the characters especially meeting the guys in the tattoo shop! Dean and Walker will keep you entertained & Emma is a spitfire! I can't wait to read their stories. But keep the tissues handy because you'll need them.

Wow

If you could sum up Tempting in three words, what would they be?

Wasn't sure about this book at first but I was surprised. What an amazing book couldn't stop listening.

weak story and robotic narration

I rarely give up part way through but the male narrator's voice was so robotic
