Enticing Interlude by Micelle Mankin: Review and Blog Tour

Title: Enticing Interlude
Series: Tempest
Author: Michelle Mankin
Genre: Contemporary
Publication Date: Jan 22nd 2014

To the talented vocalist Justin Jones, love is merely a game that he plays by his own rules. But to Bridget Dubois, love and heartache are one and the same. Broken too many times before, the delicate beauty keeps her emotions carefully concealed. Bridget has her own set of rigid rules when it comes to men. She prefers to avoid them altogether, especially dangerously seductive auburn haired emerald eyed players like Justin. But the new lead singer of the rising rock band Tempest doesn't like to be ignored. Justin is used to getting what he wants, and now he’s set his sights on Bridget. Suddenly, it’s no longer a game. What do you do when the one you can’t have turns out to be the one you can’t live without? As the pressure builds, will it temper them or will it shatter them both like fragile crystal?

I will be honest, after reading the first book I wasn't quite sure how I would feel about this one. The first book left me feeling a little incomplete. But what the first book lacked with the couple the second book made up for times two. Not only did I get to know Bridget and Justin but I was able to see the continued relationship between Lace and Bryan. That makes LOVE where this series is headed.

In Enticing Interlude we meet two people who are emotionally broken. They had a hard time growing up and have hit some rough patches in life. Justin and his twin sister were forced to grow up fast because of issues with their father. Bridget has never felt worth anyone’s love until she really sees how much Justin cares about her. Watching them grow together is the perfect example of why I enjoy reading romance novels so much.

Because I LOVE Carter (Bridget’s 5 year old son) I cannot leave him out of my review. He is such a little sweetie and I really felt like he understood what was going on around him without making him sound like an adult. I really cannot stand books that make children more mature than they are naturally.

I am giving this book 4.5 stars. I can’t wait for the rest of the series to come out so I can see who captures the hearts of the remaining members of Tempest.

Michelle Mankin is a young/new adult romance writer as well as a self-proclaimed giant... inside of her own mind! 

For many years she worked in the insurance industry as an underwriter. Somehow, the boredom didn't kill her but the hour and hours of looking at facts and figures provided ample time for her mind to wander.

Black Cat Records in Vancouver provides the central backdrop for all of Michelle's current novels. Love Evolution, Love Revolution, and Love Resolution are a Brutal Strength centered trilogy, combining the plot underpinnings of Shakespeare with the drama, excitement, and indisputable sexiness of the rock 'n roll industry.
Things take a bit of a darker, edgier turn with the Tempest series.  These pierced, tatted, and troubled Seattle rockers are young and on the cusp of making it big, but with serious obstacles to overcome that may prevent them from ever getting there.

When Michelle is not prowling the streets of her Texas town listening to her rock music much too loud, she is putting her daydreams down on paper or traveling the world with her family and friends, sometimes for real, and sometimes just for pretend as she takes the children to school and back.
