Be My Temptation By Rachel Brookes ~ RELEASE DAY BLITZ & REVIEW

Be My Banner

Title: Be My Temptation
Series: Book 2 of The Crawford Brothers (can be read as a standalone).
Author: Rachel Brookes
Release Date: June 29th 2015



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?

Review by: SAM

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 EXPLOSIVE....you 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 mychest, and I found myself shouting at my kindle when reading certain scenes as though  the characters could hear me.....my 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! 

Review by: LEEANN

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!!

Review by: ROSE 

Jump on board with a read you wish could come true. well I would love to have Josh true to life!!! 

I loved every little bit of this story, no words can describe the feels you get when reading about Josh and Ashlyn story. Each detail is etched in my mind, even the SMOKIN SEXY Scenes. 

Josh and Ashlyn have been friends for a years and this just makes their story so much more. You have laughter, tears, Sexy times and a bond so strong nothing will break it. Josh knows what he wants and just goes for it.....Now that is a MAN. 

If you love a story filled with all the feels then BE MY TEMPTATION is for you. Top read for 2015. 

#TeamJOSLYN all the way baby!!
