Title: Tempting Taylor
Taylor's dating life is a train wreck. It always starts off well enough, but by date five the first rush of hormones disappears and all that's left is a man who is, in a word, disappointing. Forget dating, what Taylor needs is a no-strings-attached bed buddy she can ditch when she finally finds a man who measures up. Cooper is handsome, intelligent and anything but disappointing. Best of all, he'd be more than happy to apply for the job of Taylor's bed buddy. Too bad he's got the one strike against him Taylor can't overlook-she's so attracted to the man she can't see straight. The way Cooper touches her, kisses her, is sexy as hell. Their chemistry is nothing short of incendiary. Taylor knows she'd better run, not walk, from his firm hands and hot promises because if there's one thing she's learned about Cooper, it's that what the man wants, he gets. A Romantica(r) contemporary erotic romance from Ellora's Cave

Tempting Taylor by Beverly Havlir was a fun, quirky romance that delivered promises of a wonderful future as Taylor Sanders waded her way through the throes of dating in order to find ‘the one’.
Taylor Sanders sincerely wants to settle down, much like her best friend is about to do, but according to Taylor and her five-date rule, no man holds her attention long enough to make it to relationship status. Cooper Hathaway is a very rich and private person and has been the object of Taylor’s fantasies for the past year.
In order to get past the relationship slump and satisfy her sexual needs, Taylor decided she needs a no-strings, friends with benefits man. Someone to scratch the itch and nothing more. In perfect fashion, Cooper becomes Taylor’s scratch, but as expected complications arise. Both Cooper and Taylor realize that friends with benefits can only work if the two parties involved don’t want the benefits to turn to permanency.
Ms. Havlir delivered enjoyable banter between two very strong and bold characters, each with their own relationship phobia. The author characterized Cooper as resilient and dominant, yet gentle in his love for Taylor. Taylor too was strong-minded and bold in her demeanor. The sex was steamy and the tale gratifying. A fast read with a delightful HEA.
