She's the tutor I hired to teach me Italian.

She's way too young for me, but she's also gorgeous, bright and filled with a curiosity about life that I find incredibly refreshing.

It's fucking adorable.

I’m old enough to know better, but this pretty young thing tempts me beyond belief. And for the first time in my life, I can see myself falling.

Is this what it's like to

Hey you guys! Are you ready to fall in love with Quinn? My next book is LIVE!

Quinn is the oldest of the Kingsley brothers and I have a feeling you're going to love him as much as I do!

Thank you Maayan for the rec.

Wow I can say I was pleasantly surprised about this book. I mean just look at this hero's brothers books, they are STD ridden dicks, they were crude how they treated women, I was half expecting that this hero would come out and say that he was adopted or maybe the brothers were the ones adopted.
Hero was celibate for a long time, and I'm happy to report that the heroine was not a virgin. The hero's brothers were a judgmental assholes, I don't know how they had the ne

Good read.
Too insta, but thanks to the great hero quite enjoyable 
I must admit their age gap bugged me a bit, he was 16 years older!
Fortunately the heroine wasn’t a shy wallflower! Yay!

H’s brothers… I have no words… Horrible…
They almost ruined the book for me, a couple of their abhorrent comments and I wanted to throw my Kindle against the wall.
Lucky me never read and never ever will read their books. Argh!

This book was in a word sweet... and according to my vast knowledge of the Italian language(A.k.a. Siri)dolce means sweet in Italian..... not sure if it has the same meaning, maybe this is in reference to food? But I digress.....

this was a low angst instalove romance.... The only forbidden/taboo part of this was the 17 year age gap between Alessandra and Quinn.... The only problem I have with this is that I don’t believe a 22-year-old girl has enough life experience to commit h

Tempting Little Tease is a standalone and is part of the Forbidden Desires series. If you want something super sweet, sassy and steamy then this series is for you. I was in a book funk and Tempting Little Tease totally took me out of it. I wanted to get swept away and what better way to do it but with a plate of pasta and a fun read.

This is Alessandra and Quinn’s story. Each book is about the brothers that run Forbidden Desires escort agency.

Maybe I’m in a mood, but I couldn’t take this book seriously. The hero is 38 and has been with many women, but not in awhile. The heroine is 22 and not a virgin. The hero owns the building that houses his company. He and his brothers run an escort service. Does an escort service make enough money for 3 men to live like millionaires? Maybe it does. There are mentions of business trips- why would there be business trips? Nothing was mentioned about having any escorts in other cities. Also they go ...more

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.

Oh, Quinn Kingsley, how you take my breath away! This book was such a beautiful and sexy romantic treat. I couldn’t put it down! And when I did finally put it down, I wanted to read it all over again! It was a quick read, but it was packed with this emotional and sensual pull that you just couldn’t deny. I adored Quinn and Alessandra. I crave that forbidden angle with the heavy age diff
Sweet and super sexy! I love the chemistry between these characters! I'm a sucker for books with an older man/younger woman and this one was done perfectly. Audio book narration was really well done.

This may have been my favorite book in this series. And that's saying something because I loved Cooper. But Quinn. Oh, man. Quinn. He's that smart, sophisticated, gorgeous, older man that you only see in movies or read about in books. He knows what he wants and he isn't afraid to go after it.

And he wants Alessandra.

Quinn's new Italian tutor is a twenty-two year old who has her life mapped out. The plan is to spend three more weeks Stateside and then move to Italy. It's the dream. The ul

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 entir

Kendall Ryan is killing it with this series and this is the best one yet. Sexy. Sweet. Tempting. Oh so forbidden. Tempting Little Tease steamed up my kindle screen and had my heart about to beat out of my chest. I love love love a good age gap romance and Kendall delivered the perfect one.

What a great addition to this series! This can be read as a stand-alone but it is way more fun if you have already gotten to meet the two younger Kingsley brothers.

Quinn is the eldest brother. Serious, business minded, and doesn't have time nor really the interest in looking for someone for himself. And then walks in his new tutor. Alessandra is about to embark on her dreams of Italy. She has always dreamed of living there, taking in the sights, and enjoying the culture. And then she meets Quin

Sweet, fun, flirty, and sexy! Tempting Little Tease was a low-angst storyline and easy read. Hot older man hires young college grad student to tutor him Italian. Hot chemistry and romance...seriously what else can you ask for. This book was just downright fun especially when we got to fall for a swooony hero.

Tempting Little Tease was a great ending the trio of Kingsley's brother stories, but not the end of this series. Oh no, no, no. Kendall threw us a little surprise in this book which will continue the Forbidden Desires series. YAY!!

I had been looking forward to Quinn's book since this series started. He is the eldest of the Kingsley brothers and the one that seems to have his shit together. He's never been one for relationships and he is quite ok with that. There isn't anything in his past that h

Tempting Little Tease is the fourth book in the Forbidden Desires series and I honestly can say that it has been my favorite. I think I was in the mood for a dose of Ms. Ryan’s writing when I grab this one because I did not want to put it down at all. It was sexy as all hell and I probably could have attacked my husband had he been near while I was reading it. It had the perfect balance of emotional moments as well as that feeling of contentment.

This book is part of a series of interconnected standalones about three brothers who own an escort sevice. Not as seedy as it sounds. This is simply classy dates for visiting wealthy businessmen, etc. This is oldest brother, Quinn's book. I have not read the others in this series which did not prevent me from enjoying this one. Although I must confess that having read this one, I do want to go back and read Gavin and Cooper's books.

It's a quick, well written and steamy read that held my interest from start to end.

Quinn and Alessandra are likable, passionate characters and I loved them together.
I enjoyed watching their interactions, they made me smile and swoon and the pull they both felt from the first meeting was totally believable. I had no issue with the age difference, if anything it added to my enjoyment watching this older well established man find his s

Tempting Little Tease was a tempting little tease of what a good book this might have been.

Unfortunately for me it fell flat. It was cliched, so full of eye roll worthy moments that I nearly did not finish it

I expected more of the MCs, particularly Quinn. He felt two dimensional and I didn't feel anything from him.

Is Alessandra didn't go the direction she did i would have jumped into the book and shaken some srnse into her. Though by the end I wanted to do that a

This book!! It was so good! I hadn't read a Kendall Ryan that made me this elated in a while. This is the kind of Kendall Ryan book that first made me fall in love with her writing and her books. So I'm truly happy, after so long of loving her latest releases, but feeling that little flair that was typical of her, missing, I finally read a book that HAD THE FREAKING FLAIR.

I loved everything about this one. It was a super fast read, even more than usual for me with her books.

This was a lighthearted easy read that left me smiling and swooning. Minimal conflict, maximum sweetness.

It was a little insta-love....when Alessandra meets Quinn she only has 3 weeks left before she leaves for her dream life in Italy. They fall fast and it was a lot of steamy fun.

Alessandra is 22, a nanny, and fluent in Italian so she tutors on the side. Quinn, 38, co-owns a successful business with his brothers and has been learning Italian. From their very first meeting they're attracted to

This was a book from the Forbidden Desire’s series that I was completely ecstatic about! I’ve been crushing on Quinn since the very beginning. He was everything I knew he was going to be. He was amazing, so big hearted and kind. He’s super playful and so incredibly sweet. Alessandra is just perfect for him! She’s so alive, so full of life and love. Sweet and sassy and just full of beautifulness! Quinn and Alessandra are so fun together and their banter of back and forth was just so darn fun.

This was a sweet and sexy story featuring the oldest Kingsley brother, Quinn. Tempting Little Tease is book 4 in the Forbidden Desires series, but can be read as a stand alone. Characters from the previous books do appear, however, and that is where our hero is initially introduced. The book is both an age gap romance as well as teacher and student taboo.

Quinn is definitely my favorite Kingsley brother. He is sexy and pure alpha male, but also tender, sweet, and thoughtful to those he loves. He

A lot promised here but all in all rather tame.

From the blurb and title, I was expecting a thrilling story about temptation and confliction, about an older man and younger tease lusting after each other but one of them resists and resists until everything explodes...

What I got instead was a rather tame contemporary romance, there was no real confliction, the sexual chemistry never really got beyond a slow burn, but there were plenty of funny moments with mispronounced Italian and sexual proposit
