Tempo by Kelley Maestas

What happens when the tempo of your life is destroyed by circumstances out of your control? Do you give up and give in, or do you fight to get your life back?

Karlie McKenna is facing a dilemma, does she continue to follow her safe but celibate lifestyle or does she race toward a new beginning? Summoned to the boss’ office she has no option but to head to Las Vegas for the opportunity of a lifetime.

Vincent Scarpetti has been running from his own demons. Attempting to right the wrongs in his past, Scarpetti searches for his freedom in Tempo, the newest and most anticipated resort in Las Vegas.

Set on a collision course, can they survive the impact?

Tensions rise as the lines between conference room and bedroom blur. Will Vincent offer Karlie what she wants? Can Karlie give Vincent what he needs?

Find out what happens to them both as they adjust to the new tempo that will rule their world.

Karlie is one of those girls everyone knows, they live their lives in solitude because the world has dealt them heavy blows early in life. As soon as i started reading this book i already felt proud of her and wanted to befriend her to remind her what life is about. Though Karlie has been dealt some blows she's has successes in her career as an interior designer extraordinary  which lands her an opportunity in Vegas (with jazz fingers). 

Flight from Colorado to Vegas becomes the first step in Karlie coming into herself. 

I really enjoyed Tempo, even more the Tempo (see what i did there) of the story. Karlie is a small girl emotionally in a woman's body. As the story flows you see her break out of her shell. Her life is work and nothing more, with no friends or family she's a create of habit. Vincent becomes smitten with her immediately but his own demons can ruin the growing relationship. 

Tempo has great originality, character development and is one of the rare books these days that end. If Kelley wants to make this a series she can but the book has an introduction, body and conclusion. Don't let this review fool you, Tempo also has some HOT!!!! scenes that will make you need a cold shower or two! I enjoyed it and will def recommend Tempo.
