I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Can a woman actually make you feel like you’re losing your damn mind?
If she is Corina Miller.
The only woman who has ever made me long for something more, and let me tell you, that has me all kinds of messed up. After months of ignoring my feelings, it’s clear to me I’ve fallen for those piercing blue eyes and sexy smile.
But is it too late?
Have I pushed her into the arms of someone else?
Hell no am I letting that happen.
I’m on a mission to win the heart of the only woman I’ve ever cared about—and the only thing standing in my way is one stubborn and pissed off Corina.
I always did like a challenge.
I’ve been a fan of Kelly Elliott’s “Cowboys and Angels” series ever since reading the first—and still my favorite—Lost Love. The setting of small town Texas where everyone knows everyone is charming and picturesque. Tempting Love has the ingredients for an amazing love story, one right up my alley—the sweet, dirty talking hero, the sassy heroine, and a build-up to some great drama.
Mitchell and Corina’s story has been with us since the very first novel—so has their tumultuous relationship. Ever since we witnessed them spending an unforgettable night together, I’ve been rooting for them to get their act together. Throughout the series, their book has been set up perfectly to give us the angst I’ve come to expect from Kelly Elliott.
And there is plenty of angst, in the beginning. I immensely enjoyed the push and pull in the beginning of seeing if they get together or not. However, once the two of them managed to find their way back to each other, the story turned sweet—a little too sweet form me. That is not to say the story wasn’t good, it was! I love how Mitch and Corina didn’t let anyone ruin their happily ever after; I guess I was just hoping for something more to pull on my heartstrings.
I enjoyed this story a lot overall. It’s sweet and entertaining and I absolutely loved the scenes with Mitch’s other siblings. The Parker family makes for some hilarious situations, especially Amelia and Chloe. I love them all—and I can’t wait for Waylynn’s book, I have a feeling my emotions will be put through the ringer with that one.
Ultimately, Tempting Love is a great story about letting love in and not let fear take over. It has made me like the whole Parker family a lot more and I’ll be waiting with bated breath for the next installment. I do enjoy visiting Oak Springs and see what these characters have been up to. If you are in need of a sweet love story with a swoon-worthy hero and a sassy heroine Tempting Love is the book for you!
~Review by Anja
I followed him, my hands shaking as I grew angrier by the second. “That’s it? You’re going to let me move out?”
Mitchell reached for his keys, then turned to me. “I can’t force you to stay here, Corina. If you’re unhappy, then yes, you should leave. Do I want you to? No, I don’t. I know I fucked up, but if you’re going to throw it in my face every goddamn chance you get, then you’re right, this won’t work.”
He headed to the stairs that led down to his front door. My heart raced, and I knew I couldn’t leave it like this. Closing my eyes, I called out to him. “Mitch! You never asked me to the Pecan Street Honky Tonk.”
Stopping, he looked back up at me. “What?”
I swallowed hard and took in a quick breath. “The dance, you never asked me. And well, Lane asked me.”
Sadness swept over his face. “What did you tell him?”
Wringing my hands together, I answered, “I haven’t responded…yet. I was waiting for you.”
Mitchell rushed back up the steps and stopped in front of me. I don’t think I’d ever felt my stomach dip like it did when he raced toward me. He cupped my face and leaned in. My chest rose and fell with each breath as I waited for him to speak. His touch sent a flurry of butterflies through my chest.
“Corina, will you go with me to the street dance next weekend?”
My teeth sank into my lip, and I watched as his eyes filled with lust.
“Yes.” I smiled and added, “But only as friends.”
The corner of his mouth rose into a sexy smirk. God, how I loved that smile of his. “It’s a date, then.”
“As friends,” I added.
He leaned down and pressed his lips to mine. Before I could even process his lips, they were gone and he was stepping back. “I’ll take it. For now.”
