*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
Well, let me tell you now if you loved Ky the first Crawford Brother then you are going to LOVE his little brother Josh that man is just so lush!! I like Ky but Josh I loved him. Be My Temptation by Rachel Brookes is the second in The Crawford Brothers series and is Josh and Ashlyn story. Two people shared a night one that five years later they have never forgotten; especially Josh Ashlyn was that one Temptation, who he just couldn’t forget.
“After all, no one knew it, Ashlyn didn’t even know it, but Ashlyn Hart was and would always be my forever girl”
From very early on I soon realised that there is more to Josh than meets the eye. He may have seemed like a ladies man, but he was selfless, had a big heart, and sexy alpha with all the right words. Ashlyn Hart was strong, sassy, funny, and independent, but an ex-boyfriend had broken her heart, and that make her cautious with her feelings. I like her, but once or twice I did want to give her a little shake and say just listen to what your heart is telling you.
“There was something different about Josh Crawford's attention. It made me feel like the world was spinning out of control around us but all he focused on was me”
I loved Josh and Ashlyn together and individually. The connection was high between them as was sexual tension. Their friendship/relationship was fun, flirty, sexy, cute, passionate and intense. They had to not let fear and the past stand in their way of what they want, especially Ashlyn as Josh deep down always knew what he wanted.
“Be mine today, tomorrow and forever, because we both know that we are the only ones for each other”
With Be, My Temptation Rachel has written a story about soul mates, true love, second chances, friendships and taking chances. And what you will do for that person who you know took your heart from the very first time you saw them. The one person who no matter what happens you will always want, them be your forever person. I adored this one, which wasn’t a surprise and loved being on Josh and Ashlyn journey.
“A risk is worth taking if it leads to a happily ever after”
Loved the way Rachel writes with such passion, she is such a talented writer. I just can’t help but love her characters and have great empathy for them. She never fails to pull on all my emotions I swooned, laugh, cried, got anxious, and wanted to punch someone while reading this one and those sexy scenes were hot!! Love the epilogue it left me with a grin on my face. It was the perfect ending for Josh and Ashlyn.
"You hold my heart in those pretty little hands of yours Ashy, I can’t survive without you.
It was good to see that all was well in the world of Ky & Eden, love that Rachel give us a different side of Eden. Rachel also introduces two hot sexy characters that will be getting books in the future Ashlyn’s brother Austin and his friend Ben Hunt. Let me just take a moment to talk about Ben Hunt from the snippet that we get of him, it was just enough to leave a lasting impression. I know that I’m going to love him and has alpha ways. I can’t wait for his book.
Fans of Rachel’s will love this one, and I suggest you one click today and meet the gorgeous Josh Crawford. I would also suggest that if you haven’t read Be My December then you should one click and read that one first. If you have not read one of Rachel’s books before, then I suggest you start today, and one click the Breathe series as you won’t be disappointed.

Read the first book in the series Be My December
I knew the exact moment I’d become a ‘yes’ girl.
December 16th, a cold winter’s night, four years ago.
The night my innocence was stolen, the night I made the mistake of saying no—a mistake I’d never make again.
The dream of a ‘happily ever after' was now a locked away myth. I promised myself that I’d never return to the place of my worst nightmare, that I’d never let anyone get close, but then again, I never thought I’d meet someone like him.
The intense, confident and beautiful Ky Crawford.
I had no plans to become someone’s Prince Charming.
I couldn’t be. I refused to be. My plan was simple—do whatever it takes to correct my biggest mistake, my one regret that now controlled my life.
I was on track. I had plans, but then everything changed when I saw her—the girl in the red jacket, the girl who I was told couldn’t say no.
The reserved yet stunning Eden Rivers.
A girl who can’t say no.
A guy who craves redemption.
A chance encounter?
It all comes down to this.
Be My December?
Rachel Brookes lives on the east coast of Australia where beaches, kangaroos and surfers roam free. Writing angst ridden love stories with a pinch of craziness, a dash of drama, a cup of romance, a spoonful of sexiness and delicious men to season is what she loves to do. Rachel sometimes forgets to eat, sometimes forgets to sleep and sometimes can’t remember the last time she cleaned her apartment but that’s because she is in a long term relationship with her laptop. When she does step away from her laptop, she spends her time with her amazing family or attached to her kindle catching up with all of her favorite book boyfriends. Books currently available include The Breathe Series – Just Breathe, Breathless and Breathe Again. The standalone, Be My December, will be released August 2014.
