Release Blitz & Review: Tempt by Melanie Harlow


You’ve heard the story about the wedding planner who falls for the groom?
Well, this is the one where she falls for his father.
And that groom? He’s my ex.

TEMPT, an all-new scorching hot age gap, forbidden, small town romance, featuring a plus-sized heroine and her ex’s irresistible dad from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is now available!


I didn’t realize who the gruff, gorgeous older man was the night he rescued me from a creep in a Manhattan hotel bar. All I knew was that a hot, bearded stranger with a protective streak showed up right when I needed a reminder that real gentlemen still exist.

(Although he left his manners behind after asking me up to his room.)

It was the hottest night of my life, but I never thought I’d see the former Navy SEAL again.

Imagine my surprise at the rehearsal dinner one week later, when my sexy one-night stand is introduced as the father of the groom. Even more surprising? That temptation we felt in New York was no fluke.

In public, we pretend there’s nothing between us.

In private, we can’t keep our hands off each other.

The situation is beyond complicated. Zach never even knew he’d fathered a child until recently, and he wants to earn his son’s trust and respect. As for me, I’m looking for a man who wants to start a family, and Zach has made it clear he’s not that man. He’s fifteen years older, newly divorced, and he lives across the country.

But no matter how many times we draw the line, we keep crossing it.

Nothing so wrong should ever feel so right.

I AM OBSESSED! Exes Dad is one of my all time fave tropes and I don’t see it enough so when I saw Melanie was writing this trope, I freaked out and it didn’t disappoint! 

I love the Cloverleigh Farms world so much and I’m so happy that Melanie has continued with the second generation. 

Millie is Melanie’s first plus size main character and I loved her! We see a bit of background of how she hasn’t always loved her body but now she’s confident and loves her body. Size isn’t mentioned much in this story which I love, I didn’t want it to become a big thing. As someone who is plus size myself, I really related to her story. 

Now let’s talk about Zach…. Zach is amazing! I fell in love with Zach. His dirty talk is top tier and his confidence is super sexy. The moment he sees Millie, he’s a goner and has to have her. 

Millie never thought she’d find her prince charming and when she sees Zach across the bar, she can’t look away. Neither of them realise that Zach is Millie’s exes father until their paths cross once again. 

Their push and pull were great, their chemistry was off the charts and the spice was incredible. Their relationship felt so mature and realising and I really loved it. I really couldn’t put this book down, all I wanted to do was read their story and continue swooning over Zach! 

This was such a delicious story and I didn’t want it to end.
