Everything with Jade began at Club Temptation, so it makes sense fate would bring us back together here. She looks so incredibly beautiful it takes my breath. So insanely sexy. And from the look in her eyes…she still hates me.

I thought leaving Jade behind six years ago was my only option. I didn’t want to admit how much she meant to me, and I definitely didn’t want to fac

S.A. Clayton knows how to write them steamy, short and sweet but packing a serious punch to the heart and her addition to the new, irresistible Club Temptation series had all of that and some y'all. Jade and Gage's second chance romance (looooooved these two!!) in Tempting Fate heated me up, had me squirming in my seat, and left me with a big ol'smile on my face.

I am a huge, huge fan of the With Me in Seattle series so to see this spin off from Tied With Me (loooooved Matt!) was everythi

Once again I was sucked in for the very first page. Jade and Gage have so much chemistry it was too great to be ignored. It has taken them a few years since they've seen each other but the love they felt did not disappear but only got stronger no matter how much they both wanted it not to.

The second chance didn't felt rushed even though this was a short story. I wanted them and this to be a full length novel because I fell that this was not nearly enough for me.

Jade has loved her brother’s best friend Gage since she was a teenager. Six years ago the chemistry between them ignited and a relationship ensued however rather than Gage telling her brother like she wanted he left town with no further contact.

Six years later Jade is back at Club Temptation when Gage comes back into her life. Will he be able to convince her to give him a second chance or if the pain of the past too much to overcome?

Talk about fast and hot!!! PHEW!!!!

This is a story about second chances and best friends' little sister.

Part of the Club Temptation Collection, this novella is a quick steamy read about Gage and Jade. When they reunite, Gage is now working for the club. What happens next is a whirlwind of reuniting and reconnecting on all levels.

SA Clayton took a story that could been all about the sex and made it all about the love.

ARC received and I decided to leave an honest review.

Jade's dreams finally became reality when Gage noticed her as more than just his best friend's little sister. But Gage got cold feet and picked his friendship with Parker over his relationship with Jade. They run into each other again after six long years in the same place where it all started. Will they make it this time?

It's a quick and very steamy romance that packs quite a punch. Their pain and loss came through clearly on every page. It's all intense emotion from start to finish.

Tempting Fate is a combination of second changes and best friends brothers little sister romances. This was a quick steamy read that you won’t want to put down. The character chemistry is amazing. A total must read!

Jade and Gage had a secret romance that turned into something more 6years ago. But 6 years ago Gage wasn’t ready to tell his bestfriend, who also happened to Jade’s older brother, that he was in love with his little sister. Instead of sticking around Gage ran.

Jade had been in love with her brother's best friend, Gage, for years when they began a secret relationship. However, rather than admit to her brother how he felt about her, he ran. Now a second chance stares them in the face. IF the same problem that broke them the first time does not repeat itself. IF Gage can be the man Jade deserves. IF Jade can find it in her heart to let Gage back in.

Tempting Fate is a best friends sibling second chance erotic romance in the Club Temptation world.

Sexy, steamy, erotic and oh so tempting. I devoured this book so quickly. The tension between Gage and Jade was so thick that you almost thought they would not be able to move past their past. This was my first book from this author an

Tempting Fate by S.A. Clayton was a steamy short read packed with passion, romance, and angst. A Forbidden BDSM romance from old lovers that will make you fan and swoon!

Jade's and Gage's story is complicated. It is also very steamy, very passionate and very emotional. The path they set started to be a little wonky, but they found their way back to one another, and boy did it happen with a bang!

This novella packs a punch. Based on a BDSM relationship, it is intense and very passionate. Gage as

OMG Jade and Gage are the perfect pair. Jade has no idea Gage is back, and Gage has no idea that Jade will be back where they met, and where they spent most of their time together as a couple.

Jade is against them getting back together, but will the pull of what they share r

Tempting Fate is deliciously HAWT!!!

is the latest instalment in the Club Temptation Collection and it is HAWT!! Having previously read other books from Ms. Clayton, I can see she has definitely stepped away from her usual comfort zone ... and she has successfully knocked it out of the ball park. Gage and Jade were divine.

This is the first book I have read by S.A. Clayton and what a great introduction to this very talented author, after reading Tempting Fate I’m left wondering why she hasn’t crossed my radar before now because if this book is anything to go by I need read more of her previous and future stories.

This was a perfect blend of heat and sweet. Jade and Gage had the chance to be something great, but he threw it away as he ran from the need to be honest with two of the most important people in his life. Now, he’s back. And once he sees Jade again, he realizes that he never truly moved on or forgot. He’s older now. He’s braver now. And he’s not letting Jade go again.

As for Jade, she put her heart on the line and had it crushed. She’s not up for the same heartbreak by the one man she loved. So

Jade and Gage had a spark which ignited years ago so they moved into a secret relationship. However, Gage was best friends with Jade's brother, so instead of fessing up that they were together, he left her breaking her heart. Now 6 years later, she's finally planning to move on when she runs into Gage at Club Temptation so her life is thrown into turmoil once again since all the old feelings came rushing back.

Although this is a short book, S.A. Clayton has certainly packed a lot in to it. Tempting Fate is a second chance at love, extremely steamy and hot story about Jade and Gage.

These two have a complicated history. Six years ago Gage chose to leave Jade rather than have her brother, his best friend find out about the feelings he had for Jade. Now he has returned and Jade is not happy to see him.

So Gage did take it a little far by bailing on Jade for years because he didn't know how to tell his best friend about them but he did introduce Jade to the delights of a Sex Club but his back now and the minute he catches sight of his 'Little Bug' again he kn

Don’t you just love a forbidden romance? It’s taboo, naughty and the fear of getting caught just heightens the moment making the scare even more fun.

There is a whole lot of steam packed into this wee gem! BDSM romance mixes with old love, brother-best-friend, and is just busting at the seam with passion.

Jade's and Gage's may have all the passion but they also have some deep-seated emotions that are going to make their new relationship all the more combustive. They may have taken the long way round but they are off to a magnificent start for their HEA!

It was a great read, 4.5 stars! Short, well crafted with likeable characters, Gage and Jade are our main couple and the action between them is hot and steamy with just a mild amount of kink.
This is the first Club Temptation novel I have read and because of the name of the universe it is set in I was expecting straight BDSM action; it’s not over the top, just moderate and very approachable.
Grab a cocktail and enjoy!!

This is one hot and steamy novella. Even though it's a novella, it's still packed with emotional moments.

But then one day when things got a little bit rough, he left her. 6 years pass, Gage's back because he felt like he's missing something in his life. And he doesn't doubt it but it's Jade that's missing in his life.

This was a quick and steamy read. I enjoyed Jade and Gage's journey. She was the sister of his best friend and off limits. When they finally got to know each other, they found out that they had more in common, and he taught her true passion. Then fear led to broken hearts. Jade was a determined young woman, ready to go for what she really wanted. Gage was more hesitant until he realized what was important.

I always love a good steamy read. "Tempting Fate" did not disappoint and burns up the page with each steamy erotic page. The structure of the storyline threw me off a little at the beginning, but I quickly caught up to the intent and pace of the story.
If you are looking for an entertaining and HOT steamy erotic read -look no further. This author did an excellent job delivering all that and more.
Happy Reading...enjoy!

Second Chance – 6 Years in the Making!!!

Jade fell in love with her brothers’ best friend Gage. Knowing the brother-sister relationship would be damaged if the relationship were revealed, Gage joins the military and is gone for 6 years.

Jade is not impressed when Gage returns and admits he made a mistake. A rocky re-start as the main issue still remains and poor decisions in the past must be faced

Jade and Gage’s story had me hooked after the first few pages. I have to say I side with Jade on how she felt. I would be a woman after blood if Gage did to me what he did to her. Regardless of his reasons why.

Gage screwed up and now sees a chance to get his forever back. He’ll just have to man up and not be afraid to stand up for him and Jade like he was last time.

The scenes with them were hot! I would love to see more from this author.

Jade and Gage's chemistry was OFF THE CHARTS! I haven't read the other books in this series yet, but you best believe they are currently on my wish list! Jade and Gage seem to find the best connection at the Club--where they can be free to explore their feelings without reservations. But beyond the doors of the Club, can their love survive?

This was a quick but thoroughly enjoyable read for me!
