Product Description

Product Description

You met Josh Crawford and Ashlyn Hart in Be My December, now its time to read their story.

One night connected them.
One decision separated them.
One craving tempted them.

Ashlyn Hart was done with men, or at least those outside of her books. After stupidly falling for the charms of her cheating ex and having her heart broken yet again, she decided to create a new life. One that involved a career change, a new wardrobe, and the possibility of moving abroad. There was just one hurdle: the confident, stubborn and insanely-tempting Josh Crawford.

Josh Crawford hid behind the cliché bachelor lifestyle and a never-ending parade of women. He knew the game and played it well, but the night he tasted perfection four years ago never left him. Back then, he made a spur of the moment decision, one that he has battled with ever since. But beneath the playboy façade was a yearning that wouldn’t disappear. A craving for the only woman who could bring him to his knees: Ashlyn Hart.

Two weeks changes everything.
One night unravels the deepest of desires.
A simple taste unleashes memories that can’t be tamed.

When the girl who dreams of a happily ever after collides with the guy who lives the ultimate cliffhanger, what ending awaits them? Will fear overshadow love? Will the past play hindrance to the future, or will temptation conquer it all?

**Received this book from the author in exchange for a review**
5/5 Stars

You know when a book makes you cry (happy tears I mean), it really means that you just read an amazing novel. I really don't need to tell you this book is phenomenal because those of you who have read Be My December know how amazing Rachel's writing is.

"He remembered everything, he digested everything I said, and could read me like an open book. No one could do that but him.
That was Josh Crawford."

The ending chapters made me cry. I really felt what the characters felt. While the first book dealt with main characters on a heavy emotional level, this book was more...the temptation (ha ha) of having two very alike characters and how they deal with their emotions flying all over the place. When they meet, sparks shoot out, and they have a bond, dare I say, stronger than the first book's couples.

Josh is not what you expect him to be.
Neither is Ashlyn.

#TeamJoslyn <3

"Are we seriously reading a book together?" I asked in disbelief.
"Yep. I need to see what all the fuss is about with these so-called book boyfriends you have. You never know, I might find myself a book girlfriend if I'm lucky."

HASH(0xa22075d0) out of 5 stars 5++++ Steaming hot stars!! June 28 2015
By Leeann Wright - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Josh Crawford is a ladies man. He will even admit to it. But he has 1 weak spot.. Ashlyn Hart.
Ashlyn has always had a thing for Josh. But these 2 just keep missing their chance to be together time and time again.

Now they have 1 more shot at their happy ever after, can they break down their defences or with they not just miss this chance
but throw it away?

Rachel Brookes must had had that song “Let’s make it hot hot hot!!” playing while she wrote this book because let me tell you, if that’s what
she was going for, she has hit the nail on the head with this one!! If you have read Be My December, you will know who Josh Crawford is & know what he is about.. Or think you do anyway, because let me tell you, any preconceived ideas you may have about him are about to be blown out of the water.

And Ashlyn, oh my god I love a strong female character with a sense of humour!! She comes out with some one liners that had me laughing out loud
quite a lot!

What I love about Rachel Brookes is that when she writes a book, underneath all the hot lustful sex is a story to be told & she has the ability to reach right into your soul with her characters & form a deep connection that ensures you will always remember not just that she wrote a book, but who her characters were and exactly what their story was about. Not many writers can do this, but she is one of the rare ones that can & does. She makes you laugh, makes you cry & you can guarantee she will make you swoon with her words.

I absolutely loved Josh & Ashlyn’s story. I can honestly say I have read all of the books Rachel Brookes has released so far & I will continue to read whatever she puts on the market because I honestly believe she is that good.

5 steaming hot stars for this baby!!

HASH(0xa2207648) out of 5 stars Team Joslyn for the win! Rachel Brookes has done it again!! June 28 2015

"She tempted from the very moment I laid eyes on her."

"He was my friend, my first, my torment, and my secret temptation."

I have been anticipating this book! I knew it would be amazing--and boy was it!!

Josh Crawford and Ashlyn Hart are a force to be reckoned with!! I'm a huge supporter of "friends-to-lovers" stories. This one has just became one of my absolute favorites!!

I love how Josh and Ashlyn played cat and mouse for so many years. Their bantor and how they play off each other makes you wish for that type of friendship. Even if they get on each others can tell it's all because they fear getting too close.

"He was a walking, talking, breathing, annoyance to my libido, and that was where the problem lay."

"You have a body that makes men want to sin."

When they become temporary roommates, their desire--their secret Temptation--can't be kept secret for much longer. I can not tell you how much I enjoyed watching them fall for each other more and more!!

"Let me go, Josh."
"Like hell, I'll let you go. I've done that once before, and I'm not doing it again."

Let me just tell you!! Joshy and Ashy are HOT together!! I'm not talking just simply fanning yourself hot. I'm talking about grab the fan, a gallon of water, and some ice to cool you down...SO...FREAKIN...HAWT!!!

Rachel Brookes!!!
Three words...YOU *snap* GO *snap* GIRL *snap*!!! I bow down to you for those scenes. Lawd!

"All ability to breath was lost as he stole everything from me. His mouth owned me, claimed me, devoured me, and I couldn't think of anywhere else I'd rather be."

In true Rachel form, this book also had a serious undertone. There was heartbreak, scary situations, friendships that are tested, and heart stopping moments that left you breathless!

I really enjoyed the emotion that came through both Josh and Ashlyn in their POVs. You cheered them both on, wanted to smack them when they were being silly, and wanted to hold them when they needed it. They were each worth fighting for but the battle was not easy.

This book was just purely wonderful! Not only were Josh and Ashlyn amazing, but seeing so many familiar characters made this story even better! The relationship between Ashlyn, Josh, Ky, and Eden was one for the books (See what I did there). I wanted to be in their world so much! In a way I actually was:)

Thank you, Rachel! You made me fall in love with your characters once again and I've fallen for you just a little bit more as an author! Well done! #TEAMJOSLYN

"Right now, I feel like I'm falling."
"Let me catch you, Ashy."

There are not enough words in the world to describe my love for this author, her talent and the characters she brings to life. Rachel Brookes is one of those authors who pushes herself to bring something bigger and better every single time. This book has been written from her heart and soul and delivered in such a spectacular way. She writes with passion and depth that is completely unique to her. Personally, I read for feels, and being on this journey with her, it had been nothing short of AMAZING. Following Rachel from the very beginning of her writing journey has brought such happiness into my life, allowing me freedom from daily struggles and personal demons. She has grown so much as a writer since the Breathe Series, and following her journey has been amazing.

From the very first page of Be My Temptation, I fell deeply into Josh Crawford and Ashlyn Hart's journey. This is one of those books that pulls you in, body, mind and soul, consuming you and engages you into devouring every single word.
Ashlyn Hart is sassy, funny, with buckets full of sex appeal. But the side of her that made her such a perfect heroine is her vulnerability. This was expressed through every single chapter. She also holds so much strength and even though situations have made her doubt herself and her worth, she always conquers through without the bitterness and instead focuses on hope. She is such a beautiful character with a huge heart that you want her to find her happily ever after she craves.
Josh Crawford aka brother of Ky Crawford is the be all and end all of book boyfriends. He is the epitome of man. If you look the word man up in the dictionary, I'd bet you will find his name scripted as the definition. He is without a doubt the sexiest book boyfriend I have encountered since Mr Max Stella. YEP I SAID IT! You want a charming, hilarious, sexual, kind, delicious, alpha when he needs to be who wants Ashlyn wholeheartedly, he is the guy! And his inner monologue wrecked me.
Ashlyn and Josh are friends first. I think this is why they have this incredible connection and chemistry that has left me with one helluva book hangover. They just get along so well, and when things do heat up, the sexual tension is may need a bucket of ice or twelve!!
Each and every scene played out in my head so vividly, and the rollercoaster of emotions I experienced has made this book one of the best romance novels I have read EVER! I laughed out loud, my heart was beating out of my chest, and I found myself shouting at my kindle when reading certain scenes like the characters could hear man thought I was absolutely INSANE, "it's just a book" he said..."why are you shouting #teamjoshlyn" he said... "Why are you high fiving your kindle?" He said..... Three weeks on and he's still in the dog house!
Rachel Brooke's has created this outstanding fictional world that you can lose yourself in for hours and will capture your soul. You will be thinking about this book days, weeks, months after you finish and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I am not going to spoil anything, because this book deserves to be read and experienced personally by each and every reader. But I can assure you, it is one outstanding journey you want to be a part of, experience and feel.
Rachel Brookes, you have completely blown me away with this breathtaking story. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to hold your hand through your journey, for writing words that devastate me, and for just upping your writing game each and every time. You have written something so perfect and so beautiful that every person who reads this will tell you nothing less! Believe in yourself lady! You are PHENOMENAL.

5++ STARS. So

By Kristine: Glass Paper Ink Bookblog - Published on

There are some books you want long before they are ever written, some stories you beg the author for, some that you believe in so fully long before pen has even touched paper, such was the case with Be My Temptation, back during the beta reading stage of Be My December, before the ink was even dry on the first book in the series, as I was giving the author my feedback and thoughts I started championing for Josh and Ashy's book, I believed in these two, I sensed there was a bigger story for them and I was desperate for it. When Rachel Brookes announced that she would be writing Be My Temptation I was overjoyed, I had HUGE expectations for this book to be everything I imagined and more.

Josh Crawford has had a line of beautiful women move through his life for as long as anyone can remember, he's gorgeous, successful and had a reputation that confirms he knows how to keep the ladies satisfied, he's also got a heart bigger than Texas and is the kind of friend that you can always count on, he's the kind of dirty talking alpha male you can't help falling for, and I did, wholeheartedly, before I'd even finished the first page.

Ash is blessed with great friends, a good job, a fantastic apartment close to her friends, and a boyfriend she cares for deeply, on the surface life couldn't be better, she's watched as her best friend found the love of his life, she's seen two people who deserve nothing but happiness draw strength from one another, be the light in each others darkness, and Ash wants that soul deep connection herself, she dreams of the fairy tale, the happily ever after, the man to love her for all her faults and fears not in spite of them, she wants romance, and lust, and intimacy and a connection that transcends time and space, she wants it all. She even thinks she might have found him only to be let down once again by someone who was supposed to love her.

Josh and Ash have both known pain and suffering, they've both known the hurt of sinking in the feelings of inadequacy, in the fear that you're not enough, and they've both sacrificed their own wants and needs for those they love, they've become master actors in their own lives, hiding the parts of themselves they don't think they can let the world see, but when a chain of events leads them to sharing a home, the tiny cracks will start to show, and everything they've kept hidden will finally play out in technicolour.

There is so much beauty in this story, there's a elegance to Brookes words, and raw and unyielding quality that draws you in, and demands your attention. There's a relatable feel to Be My Temptation, this story about a woman who has spent so much time feeling like she's not quite enough, that she doesn't deserve as much as those around her, that it's her lot in life to be walked over and mistreated, there's a rawness to her pain, and a beautiful fragility to Ash, and it spoke to me on a visceral level, because I've felt that, and I felt it in waves, emanating through the pages, I simultaneously wanted to hug her tight to make everything ok and slap her silly to tell her she's enough all on her own.

For me this was such a departure from Brookes previous work, BMT is a stripped down story, her past novels have touched on abuse, neglect, rape and death elicit an immediate emotional response from the reader, but Temptation's strength is based solely on the reverence of her words, it's the way Brookes weaves the story, it's the characters she creates, it's two people who haven't had the worst nor the greatest of lives, it's about first loves, and second chances, it's about life and love and the family you create, it's about accepting the person you are, and finding the person who will weather the storms with you, it's about finding beauty in the simplest moments with the people you love.

HASH(0xa2207c0c) out of 5 stars Team Joslyn always & forever! Oct. 14 2015
By Selma - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I want to shout it from the rooftops how brilliant this lovers-to-friends-to-lovers story is. It was unique, exceptionally beautiful and refreshing. This is a romantic, sexy and funny must-read which is absolutely worth your time and money! I can't emphasize enough how much I loved and enjoyed this book!

At the age of nineteen Ashlyn Hart gave her most prized possession to her college crush Joshua Crawford in exchange for his heart. What seemed like a one-night stand at the beginning turned out to be more to both of them. But Josh made the ultimate sacrifice by denying himself a future with Ash in order to save his older brother Ky who desperately needed a friend like her in his life at that time.

Four years later Ashlyn Hart breaks up with her boyfriend Lachlan after catching him in flagrante with another woman. She comes back from Australia broken-hearted and embarrassed hiding for days from her friends. Ash can't face them and admit that she did a huge mistake by giving Lachlan a second chance. She decides to change her life by quitting her job, starting an own fashion blog and renouncing of men. What is the point if they only ever wanted her just for sex?

Joshua Crawford, being secretly in love with Ashlyn since their first night together, is very worried about her. Seeing his beautiful and sassy Ashy losing her self-confidence and questioning her worth because of her cheating ex-boyfriend makes him angry and sad. With Lachlan not posing an obstacle any longer and his brother Ky having a happy relationship he finally decides to claim his girl. Gone are his days as a manwhoring bachelor. Josh is ready to change his life and become the man Ashlyn deserves. This time he will do everything to keep her and convince her that they are not only each others temptation but also one anothers happily ever after. Will Ash believe Josh's feelings and understand his motives? Can she trust her heart? Is it possible for Joshua to become Ashlyn's real life hero?

This couple had great chemistry from page one. Their mutual attraction and deep feelings for each other were absolutely palpable. When these two come together, you can literally see the sparks flying everywhere. Holy cow! Make sure to have a bucket full of ice when you read their love scenes. Their were HOT!!!

Josh Crawford is a book hero you will not be able to forget - mark my words! I have completely underestimated him while reading Be My December. The real Josh is so much more than meets the eye. He is sexy, stubborn, caring and protective. Josh has a heart of gold and is the best brother and boyfriend you can ask for. I admired his persistence and applaud his decisiveness to make Ashy his forever.

I had a big girl-crush on Ashlyn Hart since reading the first book in this series. She has an attitude and is flirty and funny. Ash is a loyal friend and loving girlfriend. There were moments when her sad childhood and her bad relationship with Lachlan made her doubt herself and her worth. But her Joshy always made sure to make her feel beautiful and precious by worshipping her with his body and words.

After reading the epilogue, you will cry tears of happiness and sob "Team Joslyn always and forever"! (*EPIC SIGH*) I have devoured this book in a few hours because I simply couldn't put it down. I recommend it wholeheartedly! Rachel Brookes did an amazing job and I can't wait to see what she has in tow for us.
