Another lovely read from the incredible Kendall Ryan! Quinn and Alessandra are just the sweetest couple! I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the age difference but it turned out to not be that big of a deal.
I’ve read all the books in the series but this one was just ok. We don’t hear much of the older brother in the previous books but it’s clear he’s the leader of the family. In this book he’s made to look like a lonely old man with to much time on his hands. I believe he deserved a better storyline and Alessandra well she got on my nerves...
I was so excited to finally get Quinn’s story, and Kendall Ryan didn’t disappoint!
I would say his personality is a good mix of broody and fun, which really makes him the perfect hero. I love that he goes for what he wants, and isn’t intimidated by cliches such as age differences and what not. Alessandra is PERFECT for him. She’s sweet. She’s sexy. And while she may seem to come off as shy at the start, she is anything but. She doesn’t drop everything because a man has come in to her life, but she doesn’t completely blow off the chance of love either.
There was one item in the book that wasn’t resolved, so I hope that means there will be another book in this series, because I’m not quite ready to let this family go yet!!
A fantastic read that I would definitely recommend!!!
I'm not going to lie. In all of the books in the Forbidden Desires series by author Kendall Ryan, it was Quinn Kingsley that caught my eye. Quinn, the eldest brother, Quinn the somewhat mysterious one that keeps things close to the vest, Quinn, the brother that doesn't have a revolving door of women at the ready. So, color me excited when TEMPTING LITTLE TEASE came along, the book that would finally give some insight into this man.
Now, let me begin by saying that, while I'm sure that love at virtually first sight exists, I'm not the biggest fan of insta-anything. You know, I like the build, the slow burn, the finessing of the relationship. But, this is Quinn. And because it's Quinn, and because Kendall Ryan saved the best for last, well, this story works just wonderfully for me.
When the disparity in age between Quinn and Alessandra was made clear, I'm pretty sure that my eyebrows reached my hairline. I mean, come on, Kendall, were you really going to play that card? But, the more I read, and the more I got to know both of these characters, well, it just worked. These two are truly an example of age only being a number, because they are just perfect for each other, and their story just made me happy.
It was a pleasure, as always, to see grumpy Gavin, snarky Cooper, and their lovely wives, because these brothers together are what make this series such a fun one. They are great foils for each other, and I really hope that we haven't seen the last of them. Kendall, if you're seeing this, take note. ;-)
TEMPTING LITTLE TEASE is a spontaneous, fun, full-of-life little read, and it more than earns an easy 4 stars. While you don't have to read these books in order, it helps to know the personalities at play, but TLT and the others can be read as standalones. With just the right mix of steam and sweetness, this is a book that belongs on romance TBRs. Grab it and divertiti!
Short, sweet, and romantic! From the very first book, Quinn caught my attention. Being the oldest brother and the person each brother counted on really endeared him to me. I'm so happy he got his very own HEA!
The title here, is very apt. This book is short, fast-paced, and sexy. A true tempting little tease.
Here are the highlights:
It's a quick and satisfying read.
The characters are both interesting and the storyline is awesome.
Quinn meets Alessandra when his regular Italian tutor falls ill. Sparks fly immediately between these two! She's a nanny by trade, but is also fluent in Italian. She supplements her income by tutoring and plans to move to Italy soon. Her plans to move out of the country coupled with the difference in their ages make this an in an more AWESOME read. I love the tropes.
Overall, another fantastic additional to this series! I really enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone looking for a quick, light, engaging read. I enjoyed it immensely, though I do wish it had been longer.
Sweet and charming! Really enjoyed this one so cute.
Tempting Little Tease is my favorite of the Forbidden Desires series. I love Quinn, he's the best. He's the sweetest, most caring, and nicest of the Kingsley brothers and therefore my favorite. I loved being in his head and seeing things from his perspective. I enjoyed the storyline and how Quinn and Alessandra meet and just click. Even though they have a big age gap, they have a lot in common and just make sense for one another. The book is fast paced with their relationship growing quickly. The end was just a little too fast paced. I would have liked a little more on what exactly they have planned for the future. Other than that it was a very good read!
Kendall Ryan has done it again. I have loved each of the books in the Forbidden Desires series and Tempting Little Tease was no different. I read this in one sitting and enjoyed every moment of it.
I've wanted Quinn's story since first meeting him in Dirty Little Secret. I just wanted to know more of him. I feel like this book tells his story just so perfectly. I loved seeing inside of Quinn, seeing who he really was and watching him fall. He had me smiling and swooning for sure-he was a fabulous book boyfriend.
I really enjoyed Alessandra too. I liked that there was an age gap between her and Quinn. Personally, I think the author did a great job at allowing this character to be young. She wasn't trying to be anything but herself and that just worked so beautifully. I enjoyed seeing things through her eyes at times.
There was an instant chemistry with these characters and it worked. It worked so very well. The sex was hot and steamy-I expect no less from this author-but the moments outside of the sex between them? They were wonderful. I loved their banter and I truly just enjoyed THEM as a whole.
The pacing of this book just flowed. It was a fast read for me-especially because once I started I truly didn't want to stop. As I mentioned I have been waiting for Quinn's story since first meeting him and I certainly wasn't disappointed. I loved this book and absolutely recommend it.
This is my favorite book of the Forbidden Desires series! I think I knew Quinn's book was going to be something special and I was not disappointed!
This book is different from the others in the series. There is no real drama. No trying too hard. This is a romance plain and simple. Of course, there is a bit of a forbidden romance vibe as Alessandra is quite a bit younger than Quinn. Alessandra is twenty-two and Quinn is in his late thirties (his actual age is never stated that I know of). Alessandra is rather mature. She is sweet, honest and hard-working. Quinn is not gruff and abrupt like his brother, Gavin. He is also not a lighthearted joker like his other brother, Cooper. Quinn is steady, hard-working and does not have a drama-filled history. Family and the business are his top priorities.
This is most definitely an insta-love story. Their relationship progresses quickly over three weeks and culminates at five weeks. There is a plot driver that qualifies the need for the quick progression of their relationship and, even then, Quinn is wooing Alessandra and not seducing her. It's kind of sweet. I enjoyed the ending and the HEA. It was a nice wrap up to the book and the series.
Loved, loved, loved this book. From the first page when we meet Alessandra I was hooked. Even though she is quite a bit younger than Quinn they were perfect for each other. Alessandra never came across as too young or immature so that made her a perfect match for Quinn. And I was taken with Quinn from book one when we met him, the silent workaholic older brother. I liked both Gavin and Cooper but Quinn’s story, I think, was my favorite. This was another great book about the Kingsley brothers and hope to read more about them.
From start to finish, this book was the perfect telling of Quinn’s story that readers eagerly craved!
Tempting Little Tease is a delicious, enticing, and enjoyable quick read! This is book 4 in the Forbidden Desires series, but can be read as a complete standalone, although I HIGHLY RECOMMEND reading the previous books as they are utterly fantastic!
Up until now, we’ve known very little about Quinn Kingsley. This book dives right into the heart of his character and shows readers a deeper and entirely more emotional side to Quinn that we never knew he possessed. And when he meets the vivacious and mature Alessandra, we get to enjoy the flirtatious and joyous qualities that we haven’t seen from him. Both characters bring out the very best in each other. Their dynamic and chemistry cause sparks to fly immediate, and to see their characteristics grow not just together, but individually as well, was a strength to the storyline.
But what I really enjoyed was Alessandra’s drive to pursue her dreams and ambitions. Even at the cost of letting the love of her life go, she was willing to take a chance on the unknown. And for Quinn to realize how important her goals were to her, he sacrifices his own love and happiness for her.
Tempting Little Tease is a sweet, heartwarming, and heat-blazing love story with an entertaining storyline. If you liked the previous books in the series, then you definitely don’t want to pass up this book!
