To the talented vocalist Justin Jones, love is merely a game that he plays by his own rules.
But to Bridget Dubois, love and heartache are one and the same.
Broken too many times before, the delicate beauty keeps her emotions carefully concealed. Bridget has her own set of rigid rules when it comes to men. She prefers to avoid them altogether, especially dangerously seductive auburn haired emerald eyed players like Justin.
But the new lead singer of the rising rock band Tempest doesn't like to be ignored. Justin is used to getting what he wants, and now he’s set his sights on Bridget.
Suddenly, it’s no longer a game.
What do you do when the one you can’t have turns out to be the one you can’t live without?
As the pressure builds, will it temper them or will it shatter them both like fragile crystal?

REVIEW: When I was given the opportunity to read Enticing Interlude (Tempest #2) I was thrilled. My adventure with Tempest started when I read Irresistible Refrain which was fantastic and hot. Now that I read Enticing Interlude I concluded that I am for the most part in-love with every member of Tempest.

Enticing Interlude is the story of Justin & Bridget. We were introduced to Justin on Irresistible Refrain and was also there where we met Bridget. Both characters have had their share of trouble and drama. Neither have had it easy, both had to fight demons and mistakes that have cost them much. Both have suffered loss, and each have been given a second chance.

Their story is one of redemption, second chances and found love. The many things these two characters went through are things many can relate to. Their poor choices and decisions drove them both to less than desirable situations which in terms marked their future. Justin is everything I expected him to be, sexy, sincere and understanding. His struggles with drugs and the bad company he once kept brought  consequences that forced him to mature. Bridget’s  innocence was stolen from her in more than one way, the man she once thought to love robbed her of ability to trust and love. The love story between these two characters is sweet, mature and sexy. Their sexual chemistry makes it exciting and enticing. Justin’s need for Bridget is undeniably steamy and Bridget’s hunger for Justin is sexy.

Though at times Bridget comes across as a damsel in distress, her background story justified her actions or lack thereof. Justin may seem perfect, but he has had his share of bad boy. His life before Bridget is that of a playboy, sleep with women and dispatch them as soon as the sex is finished. Both characters have flaws, both characters have learn from their mistakes and that’s exactly what makes them likeable. I enjoyed their connection, their dialog and the sex. This is not a complex story filled with angst or raw drama. It is the story of two young people who find in each other the support, the patient and the love they each crave and need.

If you are looking for young romance, steamy sex, sexual awakening with a hot and sweet rock star then read Enticing Interlude, Justin has it all. The Tempest series is one you want to keep an eye on.
