It was a sweet story. A little predictable, but still good. I actually listened to it on audible instead of read it and the male narrators voice was a little irritating, especially when he fake laughed. I love second chance romances and this was great.

"Tempt Me Too" by Stacy Eaton

What a truly enjoyable, fun and sweet read that also delves into some major issues in regard to addiction and other life altering situations you won't see coming.

Stacy Eaton really uses her characters well as they are the story. They bring the book to life along many different lines and concepts. They are so strong yet flawed in ways the reader can relate to and empathize with.

The author has a knack for writing in multiple genres, and has proven, once again, that s

This book is a fantastic read. It's about a couple who dated in high school, went their own way, met again a few years later...and then don't see each other for twenty odd years.
The blurb explains the outline, and I don't want to give away any spoilers, but if you enjoy a book about first loves reuniting then you need to read this.
There are secrets from the grave, addictions, jealousy, strained friendships, unrequited love, shocks...this book has it all.

I received this in exchange for an honest review because I wanted to listen to this book.

This book is just great! The name of the book threw me off a bit because I had no idea what it meant. If I want to be honest I still don't know what it means but that's okay because the book itself is simply smazing. This book is about two people who have had a journey of love and separation over a 25-year span. I do enjoy childhood love stories and I do enjoy second xhances stories so this was just up my al

Second chance romance with a few surprise twists sets up for an extraordinary listen. A true to life story , Stacy Eaton has taken the concepts of addiction and finding your future and given them authenticity. Rebuilding your life after the death of a spouse and father is always a hard things to come to terms with and each character in the story has their own way of negotiating their pain. Divorce is another subject approached as Max is divorcing his wife,and it's messy. When Max and Sara finall ...more

This is not the first book by Stacy Eaton that I've read and it won't be the last either.

Max and Sara's story is so emotionally engaging that I could not stop listening. There is so much that happen in this book, just when I thought things were going smoothly something will happen to turn it all on it's head.

Sara is an amazing character, her strength is impressive as is her ability to care.
Max is stubborn and reactive and reminds me way too much of myself (not to self: work on that), but he's al

**reviewed from audiobook**

I really enjoyed this story and the theme of beginning and loving again. This book deals with strong themes like addiction, divorce, and death, but the story doesn't feel depressing or negative. Stacy Easton does a great job of making the reader an emotionally active participant in the story. I could feel Sara and Max's pains and struggles and their joy and excitement. The connection with the story and characters helped see me through the difficult subject matter and h

Emotional and heartfelt with an almost real life feel to it, this story deals with many things like young love lost, second chances, addiction, infidelity, and secrets that can have life altering consequences. Loosing her husband, dealing with her twins, then finding her long lost love again, Sara has a lot on her plate. The secrets that her husband kept drops like a bomb and almost destroys the family, but they recover. While Max is dealing with his own problems, his ex is a pi

A free copy of the audiobook was given to me in exchange for an honest review!!!

This is a beautiful story of a second chance of first love. At the same time, it looks into addiction, drunk driving and infidelity without telling all the warnings. Instead, you get a real life story with all its consequences but not told with a lot of drama - it's told in a very calm and clear way focusing on the second chance of the first love of Sara and Max.

I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook even though

This is my first book from Stacy.
If you’re looking for a real hearted story this is great.
Although a very emocional one, that deals with alcohol, drugs, infidelity and what can you ask more, life changing secrets...

Just a few chapters in, you already care about what happens to the characters. It is very real.
It can be your neighbor story, it can be yours.

It seems to concentrate on second chances, after tragedies, after wrong that seemed right then decisions.

First love, true love and tough lov

: Stacy Eaton

This second chance romance deals with many issues. Some of them are death, addiction, unknown family and others I won't mention because of spoilers. The listener will get to know the characters and their particular issues. You will either love them or want to slap some sense into them. I was held captive as I listened.

The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. The team of Marie Rose and Chris Chamberlain were very enjoyable to hear. Plenty of emoti

Now, several years later, they each have to deal w tragedy and drama. When they meet again, the chemistry between them resurfaces...will they grab this second chance?

This book has waaay too much going on. Spoilers, Spoilers, Spoilers

Her husband dies and we find out her first true love (Max) was her husband's brother and the wife had a one night stand with Max after she was married. And, of course, Max is really the father of her twins. Too much. Pick one story line - death of her husband, drug addiction, unknown adoption, unknown baby daddy - or even pick two but it was ridiculous the amount of stuff thrown together in this book.

I'm a sucker for a good second chance romance, but this one was so much more. The characters were flawed and real, the plot drew me in from the beginning and I loved how fate kept bringing Max and Sara back together.

The story has you feeling all the emotions, going from laughing to crying to anger and back again. I really enjoyed this story.

Tempt Me Too was another great read by Stacy Eaton. When Sara's husband dies she thinks that everything has changed and she will never be happy again. That is until a love from her past has come back. I loved reading Sara and Maximus' story. I can't wait to read more by Stacy Eaton.

Tempt Me Too is a wonderful second chance at first love story. The author had this reader reaching for the tissues early as I was fully invested with Sara's relationship with her husband early. After his death, the chapters alternate between Sara and Max, each time drawing them a bit closer together, making this reader turn the pages faster, wanting to find the time when they find each other again. Sara and Max's reunion is explosive but it takes no time before real life interrupts them and thei ...more

This book has everyting that you look for in a romance. Second chance love of first loves meeting after 20 years, secrets and suprises that are unexpected. Teen age daughters in real life situations, a touch of plolice procedures and a family pulling together after a loved one dies from cancer. Stacy writes from the heart and you can feel it in her stories.

This is a heart-warming, romantic story about a childhood sweetheart who was separated due to some circumstances but somehow fate brought them back together. The story begins with Sara Hawthorne’s husband on his deathbed due to cancer. He made her promise to find love again when he’s gone. When Sara said yes, Chester slept and never woke up.

Sara and Maximus met when they were young and encountered each other several times as they grew older. Their love was always instantaneous and hot, but they were young. By the time Maximus realized his love for Sara, she had married another man. Twenty years later, Maximus and Sara meet again and their circumstances are very different. Maximus still wants Sara and is determined to not let her get away a third time. Many twists in this second chance love and life story.

I was given a copy of book for an honest review but bought a copy also to reread. What a story - this is a book with a good pace with real people as characters and real situations. I really like this author's style. I like that it is a contemporary story with characters who are real and flawed and far from perfect. I like that it is a story with passion, excitement, angst, drama and it is all in real life. Real life is an adventure and this story reminds you of this fact. If you want a book that ...more

I really enjoyed this story of first loves reunited. A story that will tug at the heart strings from the off but has a number of twists and turns to keep you on your toes. Some of these twists you will see coming, others will catch you completely off guard.

The story also tackles a number of issues like addiction and grief in a realistic and sensitive manner that everyone will be able to relate to.

Another great read from Stacy Eaton.

A love story made up of the rollercoaster called life. Fate has a way of playing it's hand over and over until we get it right and Sara and Max sure take the long way round. Stacey always has a way to tell some hard realities in life that we need to face up to. Enjoy the rollercoaster - you won't want to put this book down.
