Together we were explosive. Apart we were miserable.

I know he wants more, but he denies himself. His gaze burns with desire when he looks at me. But the wall he has built keeps me out.

I sense he’s hiding something.
But, then, so am I.

To guard our hearts, we’ve kept our secrets locked away. But secrets are like love—one way or another, they find a way.

"We were drawn to each other like magnets. When I was near him, I felt complete. The air changed when he neared, causing the sparks to almost be palpable."

Wow, just wow! I have no idea where to begin.
After reading the first two books of this series, waiting for this book was like sitting on hot coals. With the first book I fell in love with all characters attached and I couldn't be happier, that Sawyer and Kurt finally got their own book. I had high hopes and non of those got disappointed.

Wow.....superb....fantastic...the list goes on and on of words I could use to describe this latest novel by Kristin!!!! Tempting Perfection is told through the eyes of Kurt Hendrix and Sawyer Wade. And boy oh boy do these two lovers know how to tell their story!!!!!

They had a very brief fling in the past but when you know you had something good, it’s hard to let it go. Kurt’s past has made him a little shy to ever try at something “more” but Sawyer makes him realise what he’s been missing. As th

BAM!!!!! Best book that Kristin has written to date
I loved the "friends' to roomies to lovers. Sawyer and Kurt make the perfect combination one was neat, tidy and organized and the other was simply put a walking mess. I loved how totally perfect the two are for each other.
But the part that I really loved is how Kristin starts off with a really funny story, makes it beautiful then ZAP!!!! There a mystery. And trust me the lady is the new queen of mystery. I cany wait for everyone to read it

My heart is so very full after finishing this book!!! I haven’t been able to pick anything else up to read because I still have Sawyer and Kurt on my mind and in my head! Just gah!!! This book!!!!

Ok so we already know Sawyer and Kurt. And I’ve loved them since we’ve met them. But now we get more of just them!! Kurt, he’s unorganized and the opposite of Sawyer. But he’s a rockstar with the biggest heart and the kindest soul! And he’s just the sweetest! And Sawyer, she’s best and organized and kn

So I thought no love story could out do Knoah and Garrick...I was oh-so-wrong!!! Sawyer and Kurt have made my heart melt!
Friends turned lover can either go very wrong or very right; and Kristin Mayer did it very, very right. Not to mention that George, Kristin's beautiful dog, makes his appearance and has my favorite side-kick ever!

They couldn't be more different but they get along well yet they drive each other crazy. So imagine being on bus with someone you care for but doesn't feel the same

When reading a Kristen Mayer book, it's like reading the happily ever after first. I love that about Kristen's books. It's like they know they love each other, they know they want to be together, that gets sorted out quickly and the other stuff that life throughs at them, they work through together. That does not mean that there are no surprises, it just means the relationship between the characters are strong enough to endure the surprises.

I loved Tempting Perfection. Kurt is a Rockstar, that s
I always wondered when I was reading Flawless Perfection what kind of story would Sawyer and Kurt have to tell. Well let me tell you their story is one of raw beautiful emotion.

Kurt is tempting everything as he rooms with Sawyer. They had what she thought was a relationship blooming while preparing for his bands tour. Once they landed back in Orlando, things changed. As they prepare for the tour Sawyer yes is hurt by Kurt's actions, but still thinks of every little detail for all the band membe

I was completely blown away by this book.

I fell in love with the characters and their story. From the very first page you can feel a connection with them. I was surprised by Sawyer and her past. You can feel the heaviness of the guilt and sadness that surrounds her. But most important, you can also feel her daily fight to remain strong and continue to live her life and not just let it pass by.

I love how fierce she is. She is funny, smart, so strong and kind. And she's without a doubt the perfe

Once again Ms. Mayer had me on the edge of my seat with either a fan trying to cool myself down from the heat Kurt and Sawyer generated, laughing because of both of their snarkiness or the nail-biting suspense of this book and their story.

Both our H/h have a past that has deeply scarred them resulting in fears of truly finding and/or deserving a forever love. What they can't deny however, is the pull they have towards each other and the

Ok so this book was tooooooo long. I enjoyed the bad boy rockstar edge who doesn’t want to settle down. He’s roommates with sawyer his PA. They had amazing chemistry and were very close. So close they had a brief time together that changed everything. He doesn’t want to ruin their relationship but when her ex comes to town it makes edge realize he can’t lose her. Then just as they start trying to be something she finds out she’s pregnant and on top of that she’s now got a stalker! Someone is out ...more

You know, I thought Kristin Mayer had perfection with Knoah and Garrick, but she blew me away with Sawyer and Kurt. You could tell something was happening between the two of them in the prior books but you really get to see them sizzle here. This to me can be read as a standalone but I would recommend the Timeless Love series just so you know a little bit of the backstory as some of it makes an appearance in this one!
With every little passionate moment to every little twist, Mayer gives you a br

Tempting Perfection is Total Perfection!

Look. I know that this is a romance book. I KNOW THIS. And these books are all about the love between two main characters.

But I have to admit. My favorite character in this story is GEORGE THE DOG!!!

Ok. Now that I have said that...I LOVED THIS BOOK! It was everything I needed in a read. Full of angst is my favorite kind of read...but not only did Tempting Perfection tick off that must have for me, but I found myself laughing throughout this whole

What a great book! This is a wonderful love story. I felt so bad for Sawyer and her brother Cameron on how their parents treated them. It is so hard for me to understand how awful some parents can be. Kurt was a little luckier as his Mom was still in his life and loved him. His Dad was a real piece of work that should never have been a Dad. I could understand why Sawyer and Kurt had a hard time with a relationship. It is so nice to see how love can change people’s minds on how their life should ...more

This was the first book I read in the Timeless Love series and was easy to follow. Kurt and Sawyer are explosive. They had a fling , a night of hotness but Kurt cherishes their friendship and is afraid he would hurt sawyer in a way that would ruin what they have but staying away doesn't seem to be an option cause he wants her, but can he be all that she needs? Sawyer has loved Kurt forever and the back and forth isn't getting to much, but once he confesses his feelings will things move too fast? ...more

I really enjoyed this book by a new to me author. I liked the way the romance evolved throughout the book. This is a stand alone but ties with other books, you don't have to read the others but I feel like I would like to read them now to fill in some things I maybe didn't fully understand in this book. It was filled with not just steam but also plenty of 'corny cheesey' romance as well. A good amount of suspense thrown it too with a satisfying HEA that will leave you grinning and feeling genuin ...more

Tempting Perfection was a great rock star romance read that I absolutely enjoyed. This book gives us Saywer and Kurt's story and what a story it is. It's filled with romance, suspense, laughs, crazy moments and a great amount of steamy scenes between Sawyer and Kurt that will leave you wanting more. This book had it's fair share of crazy moments; including Sawyer's family. I think Sawyer and Cameron were the only sane ones. I didn't like their parents at all and there was no way for their parent ...more

5 TEMPTING PERFECTION STARS!! Wow, This book is phenomenal!! I could not put this book down. I have read the other two in the series and this one is my favorite. Kurt and Sawyer were perfection together and so fun to watch their story be told. Their story has all the feels with suspense that keeps you turning pages. Kristin Mayer is one of my favorite authors, her writing is flawless. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Tempting Perfection is the perfect name for Kurt and Sawyers story. This is the third book in the series, but can be read as a stand-alone. I could not put this book down!! It is full of twists and turns that I never saw coming! This is my first Kristin Mayer book and I look forward to reading more!!!

What a great title for a great book. It was perfection.
I loved the banter that Sawyer and Kurt spout back and forth between the two of them. At times I was crying cause I was laughing so hard . They were total opposites, one neat, organized with the sticky notes everywhere and one was ...well a hot mess.
This can be read as a standalone but why would ya??

Received in exchange for a honest review.

Kurt and Sawyer blew me away. It was an emotional roller coaster of the best kind that Kristin Mayer brings us on with these two wonderful characters.

Kurt has some serious fears that holds him back from letting anyone in. His past has caused him pain and fear. He is a sweet, caring, kind and gentle guy but is so afraid in one area that it cripples him. You can see his love for Sawyer from the beginning. His struggle and inner turmoil and it endears you m

Sawyer Wade is best friends with Knoah and the assistant to Kurt Hendrix, the lead singer of Reverence. The two got together one night but Kurt claimed it was a mistake and since then there has been a little sexual tension between the two.

Sawyer does not believe that she deserves to be happy as she blames herself for the death of her niece, Mattie and subsequent suicide of her sister, Adriana. Her relationship with her parents is tense but she remains close to her brother, Cameron.

This is my first book by Ms. Mayer so I went into the book blind. It didn’t take long to becomes fascinated with Kurt and Sawyer. I mean how could you not like a sexy, smokin super-hot rock-star? Not only did we get a smokin love story but TP was filled with drama and suspense that’s guaranteed to leave you on the edge of your seat!!

Kurt and Sawyer are so freaking perfect for each other! They are both practical jokers, but both have walls that they have built around themselves for protection. Each has a tragic story in their past that has helped to shape and define who they are in the present. And they are both so freaking stubborn!!! Sawyer’s past is heartbreakingly tragic, but she has been able to pick herself up time and again to move on with her life. And she is going to do the same with Kurt.

I absolutely LOVED Untouched Perfection & Flawless Perfection, Books 1-2 of the Timeless Love series, so I already knew that I was going to love Tempting Perfection, but I just didn't even comprehend how much, as the brilliant Kristin Mayer, a recent name on my go to addiction list, would blow me away with this FANTASTIC story!

First off, Sawyer and Kurt… Sigh!!! What the went thru to finally see what they mean to each other. BUT, I really have to say, I wanted to really hit Kurt at the beginning. Oh, know why he did it, but I still wanted to punch him. Sorry ladies, I am NOT going to give anything away. You have to read the book.
I was so happy when Kurt finally saw what he and Sawyer had, before he lost it. I have to say this was an emot
