✪ Tempting Little Tease (Forbidden Desires #4) ✪ Kendall Ryan ✪

By Kendall Ryan
Release Day – March 20

She's the tutor I hired to teach me Italian.

She's way too young for me, but she's also gorgeous, bright and filled with a curiosity about life that I find incredibly refreshing.

It's fucking adorable.

I’m old enough to know better, but this pretty young thing tempts me beyond belief. And for the first time in my life, I can see myself falling.

Is this what it's like to be pursued by an older man? The complete confidence, the lack of expectations, the sincerity?

My God, it's exhilarating.

Quinn Kinglsey is totally unexpected. I'm moving to Italy in three weeks to teach English, and while I never expected something so real to develop between us so quickly, our chemistry is explosive.

There's something so sexy about this back and forth he and I share. Flirting with this man is like playing with fire, and I'm bound to get burned.

Io sono attratto da te I'm attracted to you, he tells me.

But is our attraction enough to get us through the complications of a massive age gap and an international love affair? Only one way to find out…

This is book 4 in the Forbidden Desires series, but it can be read as a complete standalone.

Tempting Little Tease was a tempting little tease of what a good book this might have been.

Unfortunately for me it fell flat. It was cliched, so full of eye roll worthy moments that I nearly did not finish it

I expected more of the MCs, particularly Quinn. He felt two dimensional and I didn't feel anything from him.

Is Alessandra didn't go the direction she did i would have jumped into the book and shaken some srnse into her. Though by the end I wanted to do that any way.

My past few Kendall books have been feeling like she is putting out a book because it is 5 weeks since the last one and one just has to be released, and quality is being compromised for quantity (this could just be me though)

Ive spent my life building my career, only to let it all slip through my hands. I should be sky high, but I couldnt have fallen any further. I have it all, but my vices are about to take it all away from me unless I change.

My two favourite worlds collide with Sky High - music world and book world!


I have read everything by Ms Traynor to date, and each and every time she gives us another enjoyable story.

Now, I am an old fart and still love 80's music, so the lyrics of Sky High by Jigsaw run through my head every time I think of this book. And they kind of fit at times.

I adore Lily and Baxter's story. From high school to present, we are taken on an often brutal story, but filled with so much hope, and love, and friendship.  With a dose of suspense thrown in for good measure.

I loved getting a snippet of Reece and Madelyn (from Rock Bottom).  It has been a couple of years and I still love me some Reece!

There are great secondary characters, however also some really crappy ones too - not the writing, just what they do!

Beautiful writing, the story flowed and it left me wanting more.

Please don't make me wait too long for  your next story Ms Traynor.



Josephine Traynor is very good at keeping secrets - she’s been a closeted writer for years, but only got brave enough last year to show her writer friend a small chunk of what she’d written. 

She’s a mother of two small boys and only told her husband about her book when it was completed. God knows what he thought she was doing on the computer for all those hours!

Josephine’s a lover of tea and has a thing for all things that smell like vanilla. She loves a good book that makes her laugh and has heaps of character growth. She aims to write books that inspire, cause sore stomach muscles and have memorable characters for all the right reasons. 

Josephine Traynor is not her real name. The pen name is derived from Josephine being her favorite girl's name, and Traynor is inspired by Will Traynor from Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. His message from that book was for everyone to be brave in this world and to make their mark. Josephine is now living her dream of bringing her imaginary friends to life and having readers fall in love with them. She’s doing this for her, her dream is to be a published author, what’s yours and go after it.

Jesse Ward is back in the newest novel in the Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling This Man series!

Life is good for Jesse 'The Lord' Ward. Perfect, actually. He still has the charm, he's in great shape, and he still reduces his wife, Ava, to a pool of desire with a mere look. He's in full control, just how he likes it.

But Jesse's perfect world falls apart when a terrible accident lands Ava in hospital with a life-threatening head injury. Devastated and angry, he feels like his entire existence hangs in the balance. He cannot survive without this woman's love. So when she finally comes around, his shaking world begins to level out. But his nightmare doesn't end there. It's only just begun. Because his wife can't remember the last sixteen years of her life. That's all of him. All of their time together. He is a stranger to her.

Now Jesse must do whatever it takes to find her memories . . . and help her fall madly, passionately in love with him all over again.

It's been 13 years since Jesse 'stalked' his way into Ava's life and heart. And he's just as crazy mad as he's always been! ☺

The Wards live a very happy life. Instead of a sex club they now run an elite gym!
Their twins Maddie and Jacob are twelve already!
Everything is perfect. Even though Jesse is a bit sad at the moment, because he's turning 50!!!

Then ... Ava has a serious car accident. She wakes up from her coma after a few days, but she's forgotten the last 16 years of her life. Jesse, the kids, everything.
She thinks she's a 22 year old single girl.
Poor Jesse. He's so sad and heartbroken. But he's not giving up. He needs to make Ava remember him and the kids.

Challenge accepted. He'll make her fall in love with him again - he did it once - he'll be able to do it again!



It's been such a long time since those first three books!
And now Jesse is back!

And I just loved this book. Even more than the first ones I think. It somehow has a completely different feel to it. As if it was written by someone else. Or there was an amazing editor involved ;)

The beginning of the book is so very Jesse. Fun and crazy mad and peanut butter and adorable and sexy.
And then the accident happens and it just breaks our hearts!
Poor Jesse.
But he's not giving up. He'll fight until his last breath to make sure that Ava remembers their life.

I just loved every minute of this story - even though I cried a LOT! ☺
AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL 4th book in this great series!

WITH THIS MAN was such a heartbreaking &  adorable & sexy & funny romance! Run to your nearest amazon for your own perfect addition to the THIS MAN series! But hurry, or Jesse will eat all the peanut butter by himself! ☺

This is a book that I didn't know I needed.

I was completely happy with the way Jesse Ward had trampled through my life and how the 3rd book ended.

However I had to read With This Man, just to find out where the Lord Of The Manor was today.

What a ride we were taken on with Jesse, Ava and their twins.  It was heartbreaking, hopeful, funny, sweet, sexy.

It was wonderful to get more of Sam, John and Drew also.

I loved how Jesse, older and (maybe, maybe not) wiser is still trampling Ava and now his kids.  I love how they don't take his crap, I love how they fight back (just like their mother!).   

I am not usually a fan of extra books thrown on to the end of a series, however With This Man is a wonderful exception.

if you haven't read the THIS MAN series yet - DO IT NOW!!!

we might meet the heroine of this book in Drew's novella ;)

Standalone Romantic Suspense!

‘A lingering idea that I just couldn’t ignore.’ – Jodi Ellen Malpas

Jodi Ellen Malpas wrote her debut series, The This Man Trilogy, in secret, worried about what people might think if they knew what her imagination was capable of. She was shocked herself. But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN - the first book of the This Man Trilogy - in October 2012. She took a chance on a story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters.

Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of women’s fiction. With so much love and enthusiasm from her readers, and a thirst for more of her words, Jodi suddenly wasn't afraid of her imagination anymore. She went on to write The One Night Trilogy with the delectable and mysterious Miller Hart, and stole the hearts of her readers once again. She’s now a proud #1 New York Times bestselling author – all six of her published novels having hit the New York Times best sellers list – as well as a Sunday Times bestseller and international best seller. Her work is published in over 20 languages across the world.

Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a Converse & mojito addict, and has a terrible weak spot for Alpha Males.

Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion – a passion she now shares with her devoted readers.
