A hot new standalone romance from New York Times bestseller, Kendall Ryan.
She’s the tutor I hired to teach me Italian.
She’s way too young for me, but she’s also gorgeous, bright and filled with a curiosity about life that I find incredibly refreshing.
It’s fucking adorable.
I’m old enough to know better, but this pretty young thing tempts me beyond belief. And for the first time in my life, I can see myself falling.
Is this what it’s like to be pursued by an older man? The complete confidence, the lack of expectations, the sincerity?
My God, it’s exhilarating.
Quinn Kingsley is totally unexpected. I’m moving to Italy in three weeks to teach English, and while I never expected something so real to develop between us so quickly, our chemistry is undeniable.
There’s something so sexy about this back and forth he and I share. Flirting with this man is like playing with fire, and I’m bound to get burned.
Io sono attratto da te. I’m attracted to you, he tells me.
But is our attraction enough to get us through the complications of a massive age gap and an international love affair?
Only one way to find out…
From Quinn Kingsley’s perspective his new tutor is quite the tempting little tease, but the most time he spend with her, practicing his Italian, the more Quinn realizes that he wants Alessandra to be so much more than a temptress. He wants her to be his everything, but with their age difference and Alessandra’s plans to go to Italy in 3 weeks to teach English, Quinn doesn’t have much time to persuade Alessandra to take a chance on him and what they could be because even if he could, Quinn doesn’t want to be the man who stands in Alessandra’s way from living her dreams and accomplishing her goals, so in 21 days, he’ll have to let her go…the question is will he be worth coming back to….
Quinn is the Kingsley brother I was most intrigued by, partly because Kendall Ryan doesn’t shed much light on the kind of man he is in his younger brothers’ stories and partly because I’m always interested to see what the quiet ones are all about. And Quinn definitely doesn’t disappoint because he’s so much more than the grumpy elder brother who attempts to keep his brothers in line and their business on top. He’s sexy, smart, funny, and quite the dirty talker, and while he’s learned quite a bit in his 38 years, he knows that there’s always more knowledge to be acquired and a bevy of opportunities to take risks and pursuing a younger woman who makes him feel things he hasn’t felt in quite some time is probably the biggest risk of all.
Alessandra is definitely an old soul, so the fact that she’s only 22 to Quinn’s 38 doesn’t really seem forbidden or taboo. Where the age difference does become a factor is in how much Alessandra still wants to accomplish and experience in her life. Quinn’s a successful businessman living a great life, so it seems he might be at a different phase in his life than Alessandra, but that doesn’t mean them getting together is doomed due to their contrasting lifestyles.
Tempting Little Tease is a quick, insta-love story that illustrates what happens when two people are willing to risk everything for love and to obtain their goals/dreams, and while those two concepts seem contradictory at least when it comes to Quinn and Alessandra, it’s clear that what they feel for one another is something worth fighting for even if it’s only distance that they need to figure out how to work around.
