Whether I knew it then or not, I’ve been a writer since the second grade, when I wrote a short story about a girl and her horse. My grandmother typed it out for me and said she’d never seen so many quotation marks from a seven-year-old before. I took that as a challenge and have tried to break that record in all the stories I’ve taken on since then. It’s good to have goals, right?

I live in Toronto with my very patient husband and the world’s neediest cat. They both listen attentively when I talk about my characters like they’re real people. I try to split my free time between writing, community theater stage management, and traveling anywhere that has good wine. Tragically, this leaves no time to clean the house.

I love this high school reunion story. It's sharp and sweet and will have you rushing for more books by Allison Temple.

Irina Christmann

I really enjoyed this short story about Lucas and Ben, really could see them stock in the elevator and then at the hotel floor <3

Liv Rancourt

Allison has a knack for crafting realistic small-town romance with heart and heat and laugh-out-loud dialogue. Highly recommend!

The Hook Up

Prequel to The Pick Up! Kyle is a mild mannered personal assistant who just wants to get through this charity event in one piece. The angry vegan artist currently looking at him like he's gum on her boot is going to change his night...and his life.


The Wake Up

There's is only one man Jackson would get out of bed for . . . or invite to his bed, if he got that lucky. Unfortunately, Matt Kingston only has eyes for Jackson's buns, which would be great . . . if Jackson weren't a baker. A year of pining and wooing with sprouted wheat has been fruitless, and Jackson is ready to give up, but it turns out Matt has a secret of his own. If only he were better rising to the occasion.


Toy Story

Tyler's got a box of sex toys and a hopeless crush on his upstairs neighbour, Gray, but ne'er the twain shall meet. Or will they? What starts as an awkward mailroom mix up turns into a weekend neither Tyler or Gray are soon to forget.



Going Down

The last place that Lucas Sanderson wants to be is his ten-year high school reunion. Nothing has changed. The bullies are still bullies. The headmaster is still stuck in the last century. And Bentley 'Call me Ben' Hammersmith IV is still so charming Lucas can't even be mad at him for forgetting Lucas's name.
All he has to do is give a speech, have a few drinks, and then he can get the hell out one last time.
Of course, what happens next involves beautiful Ben, an elevator with no power, a call center with no clue, and a game of Truth or Dare not even Lucas could see coming. Never has he ever had a night like this one.
