Eight years marks the anniversary of Cane’s death when Brittan sets eyes upon Jordon; a guitarist whose shrouded in mystery and a world class bad boy for her bands opening act, Tempting Tomorrow. Will he have that spark to set Brittan’s heart a light? Does he have what it takes to win her heart and to make her love again?

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?
As tears begin to fall again, I laugh nervously, “Who are you and what did you do with the cocky asshole I met in Miami? He was easier to hate.”
A killer grin spreads across Jordon’s face, as his eyes twinkle in the lights above us. They are hypnotizing and causing me to fall deeper under his spell, “Ahh, so you admit my irresistible rock god looks and my magic fingers are winning you over?”
The thought of what those fingers have done to me sends a shiver of desire coursing through my body and stopping between my thighs, only to intensify.
He teasingly slides his fingers ever so slowly down my arm, causing goose bumps to blanket every inch of me.
Trying to act like he isn’t getting to me, I toss my head back and purse my lips, “I never said that…I just said I don’t hate you as much as I did a few weeks ago.”
Pinning me on my back, Jordon stares down at me with a glimmer of desire in his eyes that takes my breath away. His lips curl up into a cocky grin, “Oh, baby. There’s no denying it, you like me. I can see it in those gorgeous brown eyes of yours.” Leaning down he presses a soft kiss to the tip of my nose causing me to suck in a sharp breath of air. Pulling back he watches me, as he waits for me to try and deny it some more.
He gets a rise out of our back and forth bantering, but I’m going to surprise him by admitting what he already knows to be true. He deserves a little ego boost after the fantastic day he’s given me.
“Okay…maybe a little.” I say breathlessly, as my chest rises and falls at a rapid pace. I melt under Jordon’s intense gaze.
“Holy shit! She finally admits it! She likes me!” Jordon shouts, shooting up and raising his hands in the air.
This is my 5+ star review for Tempt My Heart by Danielle Jamie for Eskimo Princess Book Reviews.
Tempt My Heart was absolutely amazing. Brittan McKenna had it all, a loving fiancé’, Cane, a promising music career, and had beauty on the inside as well as the outside. One fateful day in January she had her life jerked out from under her. No one could have prepared her for the loss of Cane. For the next eight years she would wonder the earth; lost, broken and completely shattered. Stuck with her heart and thoughts in the past she refuses to move on with her future, not even her friends truly see her pain. Will a new tour with a hot new band be what pulls her heart from under the water? Will one chance meeting bring her heart out of the dark and into the light?
Jordon Valentine is walking on top of the world. He is also walking sex on a stick. He is getting ready for the biggest adventure of his life. He is headed out on the road with his band, Tempting Tomorrow. This is the big break he has been waiting for. Will he be able to resist the beautiful Brittan? Will he be able to help Brittan fight for herself? Will fame and fortune change who he is?
Holy Moly, what a book!!!! I absolutely LOVED it. Danielle Jamie has the ability to break me. The raw emotions I felt while reading this book shook me to my core. She brings hope from loss so devastating and brings love to a soul everyone thought was lost. The pain I felt was deep and debilitating but it is so WORTH IT!!! I found myself shedding so many tears but they weren’t all from sadness. There were tears of joy as well. I should have my husband buy stock in Kleenex!
On the other side of the spectrum I found the need for cold showers. The sex is HOT, HOT, HOT!!! Jordon and his magic fingers can strum his songs for me anytime! : ) He blows my mind at his ability to take Brittan’s mind and heart off of Cane. When so many had tried and failed. He sure does rank up there with Kellan Kyle on my list of favorite Rock God’s!! Sweet Cane, well I am so glad I got to meet him if only for a little while. He was handsome, sweet, and pure of heart. I can see why Brittan had such a hard time dealing with losing him. I fell in love with him and Danielle sure made him hard to get past.The writing was excellent. The plot was FANTASTIC. The editing was perfect. This one will be going on my list of favorites to reread that is for sure. If you love Kellan Kyle from the Thoughtless series by SC Stephens or Jack Lair from the Back-Up Series by AM Madden then you will LOVE Jordon Valentine from Tempt My Heart by Danielle Jamie!!! I believe that Danielle has made me a fan for life!
