She needs to be good. At sixteen, Kit ditched her crappy life and moved to Nashville with only $200, her guitar, and a notebook full of songs. She hit it big, but five years of living like a rock star plus a stint in rehab has killed any good will she had with her label. The suits have ordered Kit to shape up or ship out of the limelight. The last thing she needs is a hot, sexy distraction with a sinful smile. He doesn’t know the meaning of the word. Max Butler is as far from a celebrity as you can get and he likes it that way. A Nashville firefighter, he’s living the single life with a revolving door of parties, friends, and a different woman in his bed every night. When his normal life suddenly collides with the girl on his favorite Rolling Stone cover, he sees the perfect chance to fulfill his ultimate fantasy and see just how bad Kit can be. Sometimes bad is so very good. With three weeks until Kit leaves for her big tour, Max promises to give her a break from being the good girl--no strings attached. But when hot days lead to sultry nights, the lines get blurred and suddenly three weeks of bad might not be good enough.
So funny story right, I see that Robin has a second book in this series coming out and I'm like yeah let me join that blog tour (it's coming up this month, heck I think it might have been yesterday, yep it was yesterday) but first let me read the first book in the series. One clicked it on amazon, no regrets because Robin always writes characters to steam up the sheets and make you love them (see her other book Sex and the Single Vamp that I reviewed last year).

Here's where the story gets funny, a few weeks ago I accidentally reset my kindle, so everything on it got wiped, all books, all the fun stuff that makes it mine, is gone, when I searched on my kindle before I purchased it didn't show this book so I bought it.  I go onto NetGalley to see if the second book is on there and up pops Temptation as a book I was approved for.. O_O yeah bad blogger. But hey at least I'm consistent right?? I bought the book I was going to read?? Right (yeah I'm just trying to make myself feel better about how unorganized I used to be, key words, used to).

Anyway onto the review.  I totally enjoyed reading this one.  Robin creates these characters that are wonderful to read and makes you get vested in the story. I read through this pretty quickly because I wanted to see what happened every time I clicked to the next page.
"I had thought the fire was dangerous, but I was wrong. Max was the thing I needed to worry about.
"You're no angel," I whispered.
"I'm glad you finally figured it out."
Max was a wonderful book boyfriend.  I really loved Kit because she was pretty boss, when she needed to be and was vulnerable when she needed to be.    Her with Max was awesome to read because unlike others even though he knew who she was he really just wanted Kit the woman.

I loved how things opened up between them both of them fighting their past experiences to accept the chance the other presented with loved that Kit was so adamant about taking care of her responsibilities.  I could understand her fears and why she didn't want to become involved.

I loved how Robin discussed the issues and didn't try to go all medical when needed to only share basic information.  ( As someone who is in the health care field, I despise when authors write story lines that are incorrect and share bad information, especially about medicine).  So to see her give basic information and not screw it up made my day. I loved their friends (the good ones, the ones that actually cared about them) and the good glimpses of the familial relationships.

Let's just say Robin writes some of the most sensual and sexy scenes between the characters that I have read in a long time without it being sleazy or over the top.  I loved every second of them coming together. and the way they dealt with their realities, especially when they realized they couldn't hide from it anymore.  I loved that Max was able to create a place in his life for Kit and that they both worked at being real with each other.

Of course this wouldn't be a romace, without some betrayal (not by the main characters), some sucking up (by the main characters), a few holy batman that's hot scenes and a few awww moments. Yeah Robin writes a good story and I can't wait to catch up on the second book.

Also there will be a soundtrack, because I'm a huge country music fan and as I was reading I kept thinking of songs that would be perfect and of course Robin mentions a few in the book. Be on the look out and I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Happy Reading
