4 Bad Boy Firefighter meets Country Singer Stars

I had thought the fire was dangerous, but I was wrong. Max was the thing I needed to worry about.
"You're no angel," I whispered.
"I'm glad you finally figured it out."

I have yet to read a Robin Covington book I didn't enjoy, and Temptation was no exception. Steamy, a little angsty, entertaining and satisfying; it was the perfect NA contemporary read.

My My MY I have never read a Robin Covington book before, where the HELL have I been? this book is all kinds of sexy with lots of chemistry and a good ole enjoyable heart felt moments in.

So what's it about

She has had a rough past, she was homeless and fought her way up though the rafters to be a singer. She is on the verge of losing her contract due to her stent in rehab.

Kit Landry is America’s country sweetheart. But after a painful break-up with her ex-boyfriend she was only interested in partying, drinking and men. And that led her straight into rehab.

She cost her label a lot of money and now she has to make up for her wild behavior. Her label requires her to be a good girl. But there is Max and Max wants her (rather) bad.

Max Butler is a firefighter from Nashville. He avoids serious relationships. But he enjoys women, drinking and fighting.

Kit Landry is a 21-year old country music star working hard to resuscitate her career following a personal meltdown and stint in rehab. Max Butler is the firefighter who rescues her when she's trapped in her record company's studio fire. To say they have an immediate connection is an understatement.

I enjoyed the story and liked that Kit was the celebrity, young but very mature in a lot of ways. However, both she and Max were very emotionally immature and their actions reflected as much. The fre

ARC provided via NetGalley in exchange for a review.

Kit Landry is America's Country sweetheart, or at least she was until 1,5 years ago when the shit hit the fan and she landed herself in rehab. Now she must strive to be a good girl in order to rebuild her image. No hard partying, no scandals, no bed hopping with the wrong guys. Kit is fine with that, she works too hard and she doesn't need to borrow trouble, until she meets Max and every hormone in her body goes into overdrive.

I wish I'd known about this book sooner, as I freaking loved it. The moment I finished it I went and bought the second one, despite having been sent a review copy of it. BECAUSE IT WAS THAT AWESOME. And I have the third pre-ordered.

I loved this book! You're going to see the story broken down in many reviews, so I'm going to skip that and tell you why I enjoyed it.

First of all, I love a bad boy with a heart of gold. Sure, Max gets into the occasional fight, drinks and chases tail--sometimes the wrong tail that gets him into trouble with a higher-up at the station--and we love him for it--but this hunky firefighter has a heart of pure gold. Second, the author has given us Kit, a young country singer who has fallen victim to

What do you get when you cross the tv show Chicago Fire with the TV show Nashville, you get Robin Covington's brand new book Temptation.

The characters of kit and max were explosive and tempting. The characters we're both struggling with in their own lives to get through their day to day. Being burned out with her singing career and max being a hot head in the fire department. Their chance meeting set off a string of events for the two. Their constant push pull was electrifying.
I highly recommend

I give this one a 3.5 stars to 4 stars. Overall, I really enjoyed the book but it didn't really grip me like some other rocker romances. A.M. Madden's Back-Up series comes to mind. However, I did like the dynamic between the two lead characters.

There were some sweet parts and a few angsty but nothing over the top. Some of my favorite lines are below.

I'm a huge fan of Robin Covington's adult contemporary romances so when I found out she was writing her first NA story and it was about a female country singer and a hot bad boy fireman I couldn't wait to read it. There is definitely a big trend for musicians in NA romances right now, it's obviously a big seller and I've read some really good stories but most of the time it's the guy who is a member of the hot rock band and the girl who is someone from out of the public eye so it made a nice cha ...more

I can’t express to you enough the amount of surprise I had upon finishing Temptation. I went in cold. I didn’t read much other than the write up. No author info, no previous book ratings, nothing. What did I find? Magic.

From page one, sentence one, you are invested. “I was going to die in a bathroom. Just like Elvis.” Even in her terror the humor is strong. Kit the recently reformed and rehabbed rocker is trying to change her life. Only a fire in the recording studio is about to end it. Enter i

Robin Covington brings us a sensual story about the relationship between a famous star and her every-man guy. Ms. Covington gives a nod to the movie Notting Hill (although this situation also certain applies to Julia Roberts’ real life as well) in sharing the need for people of fame to find people to ground them. “He made me feel normal and this was unfamiliar territory for me. I was both thrilled and terrified.” Kit Landry is a county singer superstar who is bouncing back after an almost career ...more

This novel starts with heart stopping terror. Kit Landry, country singing superstar was trapped in a burning building alone, and losing hope. She did all the things she remembered from grade school, staying low, wet towels over her face, she had reached a fire door, it was locked. Images passed before her eyes, not of her past life, but the one she wished she had lived. Married, children, a lovely home; even a mini-van! Suddenly, there is a firefighter shoving an oxygen mask over her face, whisp

So perhaps I was inspired by the 'live blogging' of the Romance Writers of America Awards tonight, but I keep feeling like I want to write about this book as I read, and since I don't use twitter, I just keep updating the review ...

Going back and forth between first person POV of heroine AND hero both is working for me, even though I'm not usually a first person POV reader. The book opened with a great scene (not a spoiler to say heroine is caught in a fire at her recording studio) so there was

Nashville music and heat – a sexy red-hot bad boy/fireman – and country music’s latest tainted sweetheart. What’s not to like? And it’s definitely enough temptation for me to hit one-click and start reading.

Both Kit Landry and Max Butler carry a bag load of angst – one a little more than the other. Their first encounter is literally fiery. Both are strong-willed and definitely have no desire for a permanent commitment. But the chemistry between them is strong and can't be denied. A short-term ar
ARC received via NetGalley

I really enjoyed this book. It was a sweet romance. I liked that it dived straight into their story with Max saving Kit from a fire, and from then it was their relationship developing-there wasn't any wasted bits leading up to them meeting but got to the point straight away. The characters, I thought, were very likeable. The book was very easy to read and I liked the authors style of writing, would like to read more of their work.

When reading this book I kept seeing a series of Nashville playing in my head. I love that show so I knew this book was going to be good.

I was fortunate to receive this book from Netgalley. This was my first read from this Author and it will not be my last The writing style and played out scenes made you feel like you were there in the story I could not flip the pages fast enough.

So, anyone that knows me will totally agree with the following statement …. I am addicted to baseball, country music and firefighters … hell, I married one and am raising one! So, write a story about both of these combined and you definitely have me as a reader. Have the author be Robin Covington and and this reviewer is extremely happy.

This is an all consuming and heated story that swept me away. The searing heat between Max and Kit was like a live wire, ready to spark at a moments notice. What starts as casual quickly spreads like wildfire, catching them both off guard and running for cover.

Max is a fuck ’em and leave ’em kind of guy. He makes sure that the girls know the score and every time he jumps into bed he knows that there’s an expiration date attached. Notwithstanding his flippant and unapologetic promiscuity, he’s ac

Well I have to say once I was fully seated into Robin's writing style I really enjoyed this book. Being very honest Temptation is a smidge on the wordy side, but I honestly will not slate the book for that at all because the whole bigger picture made this an enjoyable read.

When I finished it the first time, yes I have read it twice since I got my grubby hands on it, I fought the urge to pick it up and read it again. When I re-read it, I loved it even more and fell for the main characters of Kit and Max just that little bit more.

When a book starts with a memorable line you know it’s going to be good, “I was going to die in a bathroom. Just like Elvis”. This how we meet Kit and soon after Max. I knew fo

I really liked this book. It was sweet, funny, hot, sexy, and really unique. I loved the celebrity reversal where our heroine is the big name. This book captivated me from the very first page and I read this book in one sitting. This is not your typical romance.

This is the story of Kit and Max. Max is a firefighter. Kit is a singer who happens to be famous. After saving her from a fire, Max feels a connection to Kit. Yes, she is his celebrity crush and he doesn't do relationship

4 Steamy Stars. Told from dual POV's this was one sexy romance. The heroine, "Kit" is a country singer. She is funny, sarcastic, sweet, strong, vulnerable and tender.
She also has secrets from her past that she's forced to keep under wraps due to a contract with her label. Kit had a very public fall from grace after a break-up with her ex, that left her on shaky ground with her record label so she has to be a good girl now for the public.

I have read everything that Robin Covington has written...well published! I think this is her best work yet.

The story of two young people finding their way in life. He's a firefighter struggling to work up the ranks, she is a big time country star struggling to get back on her game. Both have lived through some of the most trying times and for their young ages, both have done extremely well, in my opinion.
