Bloggers say they haven't cried this hard since 'Taking Chances' By Molly McAdams and crushed so hard on a rocker since Kellan Kyle! This standalone is a must read! Brittan McKenna and Jordon Valentine are going to rock your world.

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?

Rosie's thoughts: Tempt my Heart by Danielle Jamie has taken me on a roller-coaster of emotions. I cried big ugly tears until about 50% of the way through the book.The tragic events of 9/11 changed the life of Brittan McKenna forever.

Her boyfriend and later her fiance, Cane, felt drawn to serve his country in its fight against terrorism. Sadly Brittan had the visit from men in uniform that no next of kin ever wants, giving her the news she never expected to hear. I could really tell that the author has had some personal experience of this as she wrote it with such raw emotion.

Brittan used this tragedy as a catalyst to give up school and take her band to stardom. Over the next 8 years the band goes from strength to strength whilst Brittan continues to grieve and gives in to drugs, ending up in rehab. Whilst there she cleans herself up ready to join her band on their next tour. At their pre-tour party Brittan finds herself in the arms of Jordan Valentine a member of the band who are supporting Brittan's band on tour. Over time Jordan becomes her rock and they become friends and lovers. The author develops this relationship in a really real manner showing the ups and downs of new love.

We see this relationship develop into happiness for Brittan.

I can't really put into words how great this book is. It is well researched, well written, real and captivating. This book has become my best read of 2014 so good that I read it in one sitting. Thank you Danielle Jamie your writing has amazed me and I certainly give it 5 hearts!
