The author generously gave me an ARC of TEMPTED in exchange for an honest review.

I read the first book, TETHERED, for the first time in January 2014, and then a second time in April 2014. I really enjoyed the first book, so I didn't hesitate to read the second when it was offered.

The second book didn't disappoint. In fact, I would say I enjoyed it more than book 1.

If you haven't read book 1, don't continue with this review. I urge you to pick up book 1, though. It's turning out to be a great se

I would first like to thank Brandi Leigh Hall for sending me a free copy of this book it was very kind of her. This book was very well written and the characters in this book are very unique. This is one of the best love stories that I have ever read.This book is a must read for people who love to read books that have a love story.

Tempted is the second book in Brandi Hall’s BirthRight Series. The first book is Tethered. You do not have to have read the first book to enjoy the second book but you’d been missing a great book if you don’t read it!

Brandi does a wonderful job of backfilling the story to bring the readers up to speed from book 1. She does it in a way that it fits in with the story as opposed to feeling like explanations need to be written in order to understand the current story.

Tempted is the 2nd book in the Birthright series. It follows the lives of Chloe Bishop and her family - all witches. Chloe is a Seer, and each member of her family has a different magical ability.
In Tethered, the first book of the series, we are introduced to some of Chloe's visions, but we don't know what they mean. We also learn a little about the Gemini Prophecy, which the family is bound to fulfill.

I was very kindly given an ARC copy of Tempted in exchange for an honest review. If you haven't read Tethered, then you should. It sets up the story nicely.

I enjoyed Tempted even more than Tethered. There's more conflict in Tempted and things are slightly darker. We get to meet new characters; one in particular was mentioned in Tethered. I won't tell you who it is. Hopefully you'll be as blindsided as I was. I enjoyed Xander and how he challenges the status quo.

If you liked the first book, you are going to love this book! The writer really has a way to draw you into this story. There are moments in this book when I felt like I was the character in the book getting to experience what they are going through. I was so drawn into the story that I didn't realize that I had been reading for two hours and had half of the book read. For me there were moments in this book where I was shocked, surprised and even cried at some of the revelations that occurred.

Wow and Wowza! I absolutely loved this book and was floored when I finished it! Believe me, this is a book you will want to read--wonderful sequel to Tethered, Book 1. It felt like a family reunion to reconnect with the Family and there are some very interesting new characters that you'll adore....and it will keep you guessing until the end of the book. Lots of action and twists, and what's really interesting--several POVs! I HIGHLY recommend it!!!

I've got some GREAT news for fans of The Birthright Series! Since I finished the book ahead of schedule for you guys, I've decided to NOT make you wait until December to read the final installment, TANGLED. The new release date is Halloween! And what's even better, the kindle version is now available for pre-order, with a special (temporary) discounted price ($2 off). I'll keep you post
This was a good sequel. We get to find out some very important stuff. It will make you feel better about some stuff. That ending was surprising but I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not yet. I won't find out until the next book.

Tempted is the second installment in the BirthRight series, a fun, magical paranormal romance series that will appeal to both upper YA and NA readers who are something a little less racy than a lot of the typical NA fare.

This second book in the series finds Chloe working in the governor's mansion, preparing for a New Year's Eve party. But, when her visions disappear and Chloe's family can no longer reach her magical

First of all I want to thank the author for the ARC! I had mixed feelings about this story to be honest. I don't like home wreckers so the beginning getting into things had me a little on edge BUT I have to say I'm a sucker for the bad boy the underdog so I'm all giddy about how the book ended because I want Xander to get the girl I'm all for more Xander. I can't believe I was so set on Hunter then a whole change happened for me. I am honestly so shocked that I'm now fed up with Hunter like out ...more

* I received a ARC of Tempted for an Honest review*

WOW! Brandi Leigh Hall has done it again! Once again you are sucked into Chloe Bishops world from the first pages. There are times you want to be Chloe (because who honestly doesn't want to make out with the sexy Hunter?) and there are time you just want to smack her and say "What the heck are you thinking?" There are numerous twist that I was not expecting. And a very interesting love triangle, that has quiet the unexpected ending. I won't say

When a job in the governors office means Chloe has to work at his home over the Christmas/new year’s period, she is excited yet knows she is going to miss her family and Hunter.
When she gets there she finds out that one of the men she works with (Xander) is also there to help oversee the party on New Year’s eve (which is why Chloe is there). She has a vision before she meets the family and asks her brother for help. Once the connection between brother and sister is cut he knows he has to tell hi

I was lucky to be a beta reader for Tempted. I loved Tethered when I read it back in January. If you loved the first book, you will love this novel. It was great to see Chloe and her family closer than ever falling the events in Tethered. As a reader, it is great to see relationships change and grow. We witness this in all of Chloe's relationships. At the heart of this novel is love and family. There are no limitations to what Chloe's family will do to aid one another. At this point, Hunter is v ...more

**I was given an ARC in exchange for my honest review of this book.

Just as in the first novel, I finished this book within 24 hours of opening it! It is a very easy read with a fantastic plot line! Everyone's favorite characters are back in book 2, with a few wonderful new additions. Tempted is definitely "darker" than its predecessor (a little grittier with a little more language), but it is still appropriate for a YA audience. At first when I heard there were going to be shifts in point of vie

I had the honor of being part of the beta group for this book and now I am awaiting the next.

this book was an easy read that captivated you pulling you into each character with changes is point of view. I've read other books that change pov and sometimes they come off as cumbersome or chaotic, this was just the opposite reading the storyline through the different characters personalized them and kept you involved in all of the characters as the story unfolded.

To start, if you haven't read the first book, go buy it, read it and then immediately go get this one! You will thank me.

This book really draws you in, the way Brandi writes makes you feel like you are there, experiencing what they are, and are part of the family. You really get to grow with the characters in this book, the first book it feels like they are all a little shy. This one however, they are much more relaxed around each other, which makes for more magic and more excitement. She also w

Intriguing! I am hooked! The sweet love story and strong family values continue in Tempted with the addition of a sinister force trying to bring it all down! Add a sexy bad boy who interrupts the family connection and threatens to steal away a very important part of this family! The author draws you in and makes you feel like one of the family, you share in their happiness, laugh at their jokes, feel their fear, and celebrate in their successes. They are the family next door ... and so much more ...more

Tempted is written very well.It had me reading the whole book in one sitting.I did find some of the language not appropriate.But I can't wait for book three and even more sequels.This author has a lot of potential and can take her writing to very high places.Like I said it is written very well,it flows like magic and even doing different views of people talking,she did an excellent job. You go girl!

Chloe is now well on her way into her internship at the Governors Office. Things are great between her and Hunter. This story is told thru many POV's but you do not get lost. Something happens to Chloe and she has 'went blind.' A series of events happen that you don't see coming and an ending that puts a smile on your face. Anxiously awaiting book 3.

Another stunning addition to the series, Tempted is an exciting sequel to Tethered, the original tempting novel that began my love for the series. Tempted is everything and so much more than I expected. It totally blew the first novel right out of the water! It was dramatic, steamy, and packed with so many plot twists you will never see coming.

The plot of this novel is spectacular. With the first novel, the story is just taking off. You meet all the characters, get introduced to the dramatic plo

I had the pleasure to once again beta read for this author, in exchange for an honest review.

I ABSOLUTELY loved this book even more than book one, and I didn't think that was possible. I loved the surprises in the book. Hall has a way of throwing you curveballs you NEVER saw coming.

I've never read many books with multiple points of view before, mainly because I was never a fan. But Hall has a way of truly making you feel like you're in the mind of each and every one of them. She captured their

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. I have read both of the books in the BirthRight series, and have enjoyed them both equally. We get to see the prophecy in it's entirety, which immediately gives Tempted a much darker feel than Tethered had.

Tempted begins with the appearance of some new characters, and gives you the same romantic and sweet feeling that Tethered did. Hunter and Chloe's relationship still thrives and, of course, makes you wish you were as lucky as

I wanted to love this novel really bad but I just couldn’t. I read the first one and I loved it but there were a few things that got to me. This book was no different except it was a bit worse. The characters became unlikeable and there were moments I was just too confused to care.

Overall, I still love the plot and the story but this novel just didn’t do it for me. In fact the second in the series might have permanently driven me away from reading the rest of the series. Which is disappointing t

Tempted by Brandi Leigh Hall is book 2 in the BirthRight Novel series and it still amazes me that the author can take incidents that would normally feel heavy with depressing emotions and yet dish them up with such a light-hearted, feel good, everything will turn out just right, kind of atmosphere to the novel. Bad things happen, but as long as you have family around you, everything will be well. That is the feeling throughout both the first and second books of this novel. The family is invincib ...more

Brandi lives in central Pennsylvania with her fur-ball cats (Onyx and Klepto), where she spends most of her time attached to her laptops, reading books, appeasing her sweet tooth, and watching TV for motivation.

Growing up in a haunted house inspired Brandi’s fascination with the paranormal, so it only made sense that she’d write Urban Fantasy books for both teens and adults.
