The moment I met him I knew I was screwed.It started with a sext.An extremely hot, highly inappropriate sext during the wake for my best friend’s dad. That didn’t stop me from replying. From sneaking off to the bathroom, secretly hoping he would follow me.And he did.He staked his claim on me against the bathroom wall. Captured my moans with his kisses. And when it was over, I walked away knowing two things.One – I wanted more.Two – I couldn’t get involved with him.He was dangerous to my heart. It was still healing from being destroyed two years earlier. And this man has the power to shatter it completely.Still, I couldn’t stop myself from playing the game he started. Every sext was hotter than the last, tempting me to act on my desires. The first time we were alone, clothes went flying. There was no denying our chemistry as we collided. And in the heat of the moment, nothing else mattered.Not my broken heart.Not his reputation as a player.Then the front door to my apartment opened… we were caught in the act. My roommate screamed. Her boyfriend growled. I cried. And he… he begged for more.We needed to stop. One of us was going to get hurt – me! I was going to get hurt.I should have known I couldn’t walk away from him. His promises sparked my curiosity. My body craved his attention.It was his words that held me captive. They had the power to not only break my heart, but destroy my soul if I let him in.

After reading the first book in the series, I was eager to read the sequel. Scenes involving Kendall and Declan from Dirty Little Secret piqued my curiosity. The need to know how their relationship would blossom  had me seizing the opportunity to read and review 📚Tempting Little Tease.

I enjoyed Declan and Kendall’s story. They made the perfect couple, although it took Kendall awhile to recognize this. She did not trust what Declan felt for her went beyond the physical. One could not fault her for her lack of trust after learning of the heartbreak she experienced in high school. Also, the initial stages of their relationship did not  make room for a personal connection. Declan, however, wanted more, and he knew he needed to pull out all the stops to convince Kendall they belonged together.

I loved how Declan made it his mission to make Kendall feel special. She erected a wall around her heart, but it never stood a chance against his charms. With each action, the walls came tumbling down brick by brick. Soon the woman who didn’t fear speaking her mind, and the one who felt the need to be in control, found herself speechless and breaking her own rules. I enjoyed seeing her move on from the heartbreak of her past and embracing love. With Declan, she learned what it meant to be loved and cherished.

When you have two characters with strong personalities who share an intense chemistry, one can expect some explosive moments. 📚Tempting Little Tease did not disappoint. The sexual tension was so thick, cutting through it with a knife would be impossible. They had such a wonderful connection. I loved how their relationship developed throughout the story, except for the snag near the end. 

I had a great time with the secondary characters. It was great reconnecting with the couple from the previous book and seeing how much their relationship has progressed. As for the other supporting characters, I look forward to them getting bit by the love bug, especially Declan’s brother who is anti-relationship.

Overall, đź“šTempting Little Tease delivered an entertaining, sexy and cosy new adult romance that will suck you in until the end.
