Review by Erin
Brittan McKenna meets the love of her life, Cane Allen, at 16 years old. After September 11, 2001, Cane decides he wants to serve our country and join the Army to help fight the war on terror. After proposing, Cane is deployed for the second time. While Cane is away, Brittan gets a chance to sing with her favorite local band in Miami. One fateful day, Brittan's worst fears come true, Cane was killed in action in Iraq. After eight years, a downfall with drugs, and six months in rehab, can Brittan find the strength to stay sober, keep her dreams on track to becoming a world famous rock star, and most of all, find love again? On the eight year anniversary of Cane's death, Brittan's record label is throwing a tour launch party for her band, where she meets Jordon Valentine. Jordon awakens feelings in Brittan that she thought were buried with Cane. Can Jordon break down her walls? Can Brittan overcome her inner demons and let someone new in?
WOW, is all can ever say about anything Danielle Jamie ever writes! You always feel every single emotion at every point in her books. This is no exception! Going into this book knowing that Brittan doesn't get her happily ever after with Cane, is upsetting once you read how amazing they are together. Their chemistry is magic. This only makes you cry harder when the tragic news comes. I cried right along with Brittan, feeling like I lost a loved one. This story really hits home. I'm sure we all know at least one or two people who served for our country in the war on terror, or any war for that matter. I for one know quite a few, some close, and some not. I'm very thankful for all who serve, past and present, and always pray for their safety. I found myself hoping and wishing Cane would return home unharmed, even knowing it wouldn't happen.
When Brittan meets Jordon, the sparks go wild! I loved seeing Jordon stay by Brittan's side no matter what she did or said. Even at her worst, he helped her through. Danielle really knows how to connect to her readers. You literally feel like you are living the life of these characters. I love an amazing read with so much connection. Brittan and Jordon's journey is obviously not easy, but they do get the happily ever after they both so much deserve. What a roller coaster ride it was, and I loved every second of it. I will rave about this book for as long as I can, and recommend it to everyone. Tempt My Heart is an absolute MUST READ! Five amazing stars from me.
