Trish Henderson is a high-powered defense attorney practicing at a prestigious law firm in Indianapolis.   But once upon a time, she lived quite happily in small town Eden, Indiana.   Then again, once upon a time, 14 years ago, Trish had plans to marry her high school sweetheart.   That is, until he betrayed her by sleeping with someone else the night before she was to leave for college.

The biggest regret in Joe Ramsey’s life is his betrayal of the only woman he’s ever loved.   Knowing she never wanted to see or hear from him again, Joe has continued his life in Eden.   The owner of an automotive garage specializing in luxury imports, as well as the town’s renowned bad boy, it’s fairly common knowledge that Joe enjoys the company of lots of women.


For 14 years, Trish and Joe’s paths have never crossed, but that’s all about to change.   Returning to Eden to deal with some family business, Trish hopes to get in and get out as quickly as possible.   Fate, however, has another plan, and when Trish and Joe are thrown together, sparks, fireworks, atom bombs, heck, anything that goes “Boom!” are instantly set off.  When grown-up Trish lays some smoldering eyes on grown-up Joe, Trish discovers some new priorities, of which seducing Joe and casually walking away from him take precedence.   But when emotions start to come into play, can she really just walk away?


TEMPT ME TONIGHT is a blessed invitation to awaken every imaginable emotion associated with finding, losing, and rekindling your first true love.   Tony Blake cleverly blends those heartfelt pangs of first love’s sweetness, the longings of a forgotten love, and the sweltering breathlessness of some seriously high-voltage love scenes, wrapping it all up in a charming happy-ever-after that just screams, “Let’s do it again!”   Talk about a recipe for perfection.  


Trish and Joe’s chemistry is sizzling to say the least.   Every scene seethes with anticipation, excitement, and that instantaneous achy-type yearning that can only be described as that relishing melancholy that overcomes you when you’re given a gift that you really don’t deserve.   Whether you’re projecting yourself into Trish and Joe’s characters, or watching them ride the waves of their turbulent emotions, Trish and Joe’s story will more often than not hit closer to home than you think.   It will leave you recalling the last time you looked at someone or something and knew you could never have them, or remind you of those first wakeful moments after a wonderful dream that you don’t think will ever come true.  


The dialogue from each of Trish and Joe’s points of view, contrasted against the side comments of what’s actually going through their minds, are laugh-out-loud hilarious, and speaking from experience, blushingly true to life.  


Tony Blake’s TEMPT ME TONIGHT is an amazingly sweet and sentimental read that will leave you a little hot under the collar, but mostly replete with the joy that comes with a well-written and entertaining read.   This is a “can’t miss” read.
