Fun Rom-Com!
Finn and Tom had been friends in high school until distrust and betrayal turned them against each other. Now, years later, the two meet again during a snow blizzard, their hearts as cold as the ice on the street. When old feelings heat up, the terrible rift in their friendship is driven to the surface and it's time to come clean.

Funny, touching, and just the right amount of snark to lose yourself for a weekend. And for those who like a little groveling, it has that too!

This book came to my attention via Giselle at Xpresso Book Tours, I was already posting a Book Blitz and when I saw the Blurb and then read the Excerpt, I wanted to read the whole novella! I had also recently read an anthology of “Halloween themed” novellas called Trick Or Treat Me and Sara Whitney had a novella that I loved in there too.

I love the cover with the kissing couple depicting the characters in the book. I don't read lots of the lighter contemporary genres, I tend to read a lot more

I really enjoyed this simple story about Finn and Tom who get snowed in at Finn's apartment during a blizzard. During high school they used to be closer, but a unfortunate event ruined that and now they hate each other. This is a great story about miscommunication and harbouring a grudge and how it can have an effect on your life. Tom and Finn are a great couple, and this is a simple story short and sweet. The author's writing style is very easy read, interesting and fast paced. It's a truly ...more

I am such a sucker for a second chance romance. Finn and Tom are relatable and quickly became characters that I wanted to know more about. Tom is accidentally stranded in Finn’s apartment during a snowstorm and their awkward past makes things interesting.

I loved getting an inside peek at these characters and enjoyed my first Sara Whitney novel. I am definitely looking forward to seeing where this series takes us.

I really enjoyed Tempting Heat. Sara Whitney's sweet and sexy story about forgiveness and second chances is a fun read. A misunderstanding from their youth leaves Fiona (Finn) Carey feeling hurt & humiliated and Tom Castle feeling lost & angry. A twist of fate and vicious snowstorm leave Tom and Finn trapped in her apartment where they eventually confront each other about what really happened and their true feelings for each other.

Tempting Heat is the first book in the Tempt Me series and is a great start to a new series. Tom and Finn (Fiona) are good characters who have a bad history due to a misunderstanding in the past. The storyline is well written, with a snowstorm, secrets revealed, and a second chance for romance.

I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

I kind of really really loved this novella. It made my heart squeeze and my cheeks flush. It was sexy and comforting and lovely. I absolutely adore a second chance romance, and even more so a friends to lovers. Wrap yourself in a cozy blanket, cuddle up, and devour this story. Finn and Tom are 100% guaranteed to make. you. swoon.

Ugh, my heart.

A short and sweet second chance love story about Finn (Fiona) and Tom who used to be closed until a misunderstanding in high school drove them apart.
It's great to see how the author webbed the miscommunication and grudges they harbor into an introduction for something more.

Caution: Don’t start reading this book at bedtime unless you want to stay up half the night and need a gallon of coffee the next morning.

I literally read it in one sitting. Sara Whitney had me cheering for Finn and Tom from the beginning. Witty dialogue and sexy tension made it hard to put down. Loved it!
