RELEASE BLITZ AND REVIEW: Tempt the Hookup by Natasha Madison


Tempt Series Book 3

By Natasha Madison

Release Day: October 22


Getting pregnant after a booze cruise hookup was not what any parent wanted to hear, so I picked up my entire life and moved to Paris to start over. Six years later, I was ready to go home.

I was a single mom and the only thing I knew about my son’s dad was his name—Luca. I didn’t need to know anything else.

The universe had other ideas because on our second day back home, the man came crashing back into my life.


Attending a welcome back party for my boss’s daughter wasn’t how I wanted to spend my Sunday. But walking in and seeing my hookup from a cruise six years ago knocks me on my ass.

It was a weekend of fun and now I’m seeing a pair of eyes, identical to mine, staring right at me. The boy standing next to her is my son.

Now we’re living next door to each other and attempting to co-parent something that would be easy to do if the pull that brought us together wasn’t still there making things more complicated.

For six years she haunted my dreams, now she’s haunting my every waking moment.
I let her get away once, now I want to make her mine.

This time, permanently.

Only one thing left to do. I have to tempt the hookup.

My Review

It’s amazing how much a hook up/one-night stand with a stranger can alter someone’s life with just two little pink lines, but for Eliahn and Luca, the hero and heroine in Natasha Madison’s newest release, Tempt the Hook Up, what complicates things further is they have no way of communicating with each other about the bundle of joy headed their way in 9 months, which means that Eliahn will have to raise their baby on their own and Luca will never know he has a child.

But it seems fate has more in store for these two because 7 years later, Luca and Eliahn come face-to-face during an unexpected reunion and if the situation wasn’t already uncomfortable enough, the fact that they have a child together and Luca’s just finding out means these three will have to figure out this whole co-parenting thing while getting to know each other and doing what’s best for their son.

Tempt the Hook Up has a fast moving plot, and while some readers might find the pacing a bit too fast given the dynamics of the situation, to me, the timeline makes sense. Eliahn and Luca didn’t part on bad terms and they even tried looking for one another because they were constantly on each other’s minds, which means that the chemistry they felt on the cruise ship is only amplified once they start spending time together with their son.

It’s been awhile since I’ve read a romance with an accidental pregnancy, especially like the one in Tempt the Hook Up since Luca doesn’t meet his son until he’s 7. Because of that timeframe, Madison could have drawn things out and made anger and frustration the overwhelming emotions in the story line, but she doesn’t and it’s actually refreshing to read a story of this type where the hero and heroine act like the adults they are and put their child first.

I’ve read several of Natasha Madison’s books – some that have a more serious tone and address relatable and difficult topics and some that are more light-hearted and drama free. Regardless of the type of story, Madison illustrates her talent as a writer in being able to craft both kinds of books, and that’s what keeps her readers coming back for more.

About the Author

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…
