I loved Sara Whitney's "Tempting Talk," a sweet, witty, and engaging story featuring likeable, complex characters. The main characters of this story, Jake and Mabel, were very well matched, and it was truly a pleasure to see them find happiness with each other after they had both been burned so badly by romantic partners in the past.

I was intrigued by Jake, the male lead, when he was introduced earlier in this series. He seemed so polished and sophisticated, and I never suspected how sensitive

I enjoyed this book a lot. I love Jake and was actually pretty surprised by that. When I first "met" him in Tempting Taste he did not leave that much of an impression but Jake is an incredible man whose only goal is to make sure his family is taken care of even if he has to work himself to the bone to do it. That is until he helps his old college roommate with the finances at the new radio station he purchased. There he meets the enticing dj Mabel, who finally makes him see that his life is ...more

Sara Whitney is a new to me author, and man was I was missing out on a lot since I came to the Tempt Me party late! It's the story of Mabel Bowen & Jake Carey, who never intended on being drawn to each other because of certain issues with each of their pasts. Jake is doing everything he can to take care of his family, leaving little time for finding his person, while Mabel definitely got burned when her last relationship went south which could have derailed her career, so her only focus is ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but I also found it to be an exercise in frustration. Jake is a total sweetheart. It took me longer than Id like to admit remembering who Jake was at first, but as wed seen in the previous books, he will move heaven and earth to make sure that his mother and sister are taken care of. (Even if they dont need that from him anymore.) Mabel was badly burned by a previous intraoffice relationship and thats made her extremely reluctant to trust, on a personal level, any ...more

Entertaining but also frustrating. We first meet Jake in Tempting Taste but we didnt learn much about him. In this book, the 3rd in the series, we find out Jake is an amazing man. His main goal is that of others to make sure his family is taken care of even if he has to work himself to the bone to do it. Mabel is an amazing DJ and when they meet, Jake soon realizes just how lonely his life is. Mabel and Jake both have pasts that have engineered them to be self sufficient. They both tend to push ...more

This is the story of Mabel Bowen, a gregarious early morning DJ, and Jake Carey, a workaholic accountant. They both have issues from their past that should keep them apart. But opposites attract, and no matter how hard they try to stay away from each other, they simply can't. Their interactions are hysterical, as they really are two entirely different personalities, and the secondary characters are hysterical as they try to convince these two that they shouldn't try so hard to stay apart.

This is book number 3 in this series. Mabel and Jake story is entertaining, and the banter between these two is great. Promises, secrets, betrayal will have Mabel and Jake running from there past and there future. Flirty office lunches to one night out will blur the lines between what is professional and personal. Will a little miss understanding ruin everything for these two. Can Jake convince Mabel to turn up the volume on their future, or will she decide that the numbers dont add up?

I had a great time with Mabel the sexy coed DJ and Jack the hot accountant. Mabel is leery about getting involved with Jake due to a past humiliation. Jake was not looking for a relationship but after meeting Mabel he decided she is worth the time. The characters are well developed and engaging and the chemistry between them is undeniable. The flow of the storyline flowed smoothly.

Tempting Talk is a fun, sexy & entertaining story. Jake & Mabel meet when he's hired to run an audit on the radio station where she's a DJ. While there's an immediate spark they each have reason to avoid mixing business with pleasure. Jake has had one goal for his entire adult life. Mabel is content to stay in her comfort zone. As they start to become friends & grow closer, they both begin to realize that what you think you want doesn't always bring you the happiness.

Pretty slow-burn romance with sweet, funny, serious and emotional characters. Mabel and Jake's relationship was sort of a yo-yo thing but at the end, they have a HEA/HFN.

I absolutely adored Tempting Talk by Sara Whitney; It had all the great ingredients that make a truly memorable story. Strong, well-developed main characters that are realistic and relatable, with deep and plausible chemistry. Three-dimensional friendships that both recognize the MC's flaws and help them rise above them. Past heartaches that stand in the way of finding one's 'forever' person, and growing, not just as people but together as a couple. This story made me laugh, sigh, shout in ...more
