She needs to be good.

Five years ago, Kit Landry was homeless and alone at sixteen. Determined to ditch her crappy life, she moved to Nashville with only $200, her guitar, and a notebook full of songs. She hit it big as America’s country sweetheart, but a year of living like a rock star plus a stint in rehab has killed any good will she had with her label. The suits have ordered Kit to shape up or ship out of the limelight. The last thing she needs is a hot, sexy distraction with a sinful smile.

He doesn’t know the meaning of the word.

Max Butler is as far from a celebrity as you can get and he likes it that way. A Nashville firefighter, he’s living the single life with a revolving door of parties, friends, and a different woman in his bed every night. When his normal life suddenly collides with the girl on his favorite Rolling Stone cover, he sees the perfect chance to fulfill his ultimate fantasy and see just how bad Kit can be.

Sometimes bad is so very good.
With three weeks until Kit leaves for her big tour, Max promises to give her a break from being the good girl--no strings attached. But when hot days lead to sultry nights, the lines get blurred and suddenly three weeks of bad might not be good enough.
Great Job Robin!! This was a wonderful story. Max and Kit are stumbling through life. Both scarred from their past readers will be rooting for them a happy ending. I love the spotlight landing on a female lead. With all of the Rock-star romances; finding one with a female lead is few and far between. Kit's character was perfect for this. She was the perfect amount of hard and determined, but yet soft and sweet adding to the perfection that these characters offer together. Max is a strong and devoted lead, and proves the perfect compliment to Kit's persona. Both determined to keep this a touch, but no feeling relationship they are in a whirlwind of desires threatening to suck them under. The friction this induces is an amazing roller coaster of love. Needing nothing but one another readers will frustratingly follow this story hoping for the light at the end of the tunnel. At the very ending I unfortunately found one complaint about this story. After Max's initial break down, and determined resistance to allow a future with Kit. I was expecting breakthrough that would allow our character a cookie cutter ending, but what I was not expecting was yet another break down. I feel that this made the story appear a bit wishy washy with the back and forth between the on again off again feel. Overall the entire story was wonderful, but I think readers will find that to make them question the strength of the characters. Even with that said, Temptation was a wonderfully entertaining read.
