Synopsis


Tempting Tristan is a stand-alone M/M romance featuring two sexy, hot alphas. Fresh off the heels of yet another bad relationship, Tristan Brewer is taking a break from men to try and figure out where he keeps going wrong. He knows his biggest fault--he leads with his heart, not his head--and that's never going to change. But after several introspective weeks, he's beginning to get a handle on things. That is, until badass heartthrob Alex Wells walks into his bar... Alex has spent eight years in the Army, months in a hospital bed, and far too long hiding his sexual identity. He's guilt-ridden, damaged, pissed off, and up for a Silver Star--for the incident that nearly cost him his life, and kept him from his grandmother's funeral. But all he wants to do is forget his stint with the institution that allows but doesn't necessarily accept, and live the life he's always dreamed of. The chemistry between Tristan and Alex ignites from the moment they meet, and the more time they spend together the hotter the flames become. But the closer Tristan gets, the more Alex's walls go up, and when the two walk onto a military base, Tristan finds out Alex's physical scars aren't the ones that run the deepest. *** "Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!"

Excerpt
We step forward at the same time, and he presses his rough hand to my cheek. “I don’t know what kind of pussies you went out with before, but I wanted to fucking claim you in there.” He slides a hand around my waist, tugging our bodies together. I feel every hard inch of him, and he’s got me so hot I’m sure we’re going to combust. “I’ve spent almost nine years hiding who I am, and I’m not willing to do it anymore,” he says through clenched teeth. “Not here, where I came to start over. Where I came to live on my terms without the goddamn military hanging over my head.” “I have no interest in hiding,” I assure him. “You’re sure? Because I really want to kiss you right now, and I don’t care who sees us.” I respond by pulling his mouth to mine, my break from men long forgotten. We stumble backward, crashing into the railing, fighting for dominance as we did yesterday morning. The passion between us has a life of its own. My hands claw over his ass, up his back. I want to strip him down and take all of him. I want to discover why he’s so rough and learn what about those shadows that are lurking behind his gorgeous eyes. Instead I take, and give, and take more of the angry kisses. When we finally tear our mouths apart, my body’s still reeling, and we both curse under our breaths.
                           

Review





Tempting Tristian is book 3 in the Harborside Nights series, however I have not read the other 2 books. I was a little lost on some of the secondary characters because i didn't really know their backstories and I really don't know exactly what happened to have Tristan swear off men. With that being said, I really don't think that it makes that big of  difference in this being read as a stand alone.

Tristan has sworn off men, well until a big alpha biker comes into his life. Alex is a disabled Army Vet, who has decided that it's time to be true to himself and he wants to do that with Tristian. These two hit it off right away! Tristian wants to take it slow, but he doesn't seem to have the willpower to do that.

Alex has a lot of demons to fight, from the injury he sustained in combat, to the loss of his Grandmother, and to be able to be out around other members of the military. Tristian is right by his side and even encouraging him to fight the demons that haunt him the most.

After all the problems with men in his past, Tristian is not the most trusting of Alex. He tries to doubt him and his feelings towards him many times. Each time Alex is there to remind him that he is not one of the men that he's been with in the past, that he is the man that he deserves to have now.

The sexy time between these two is super HOT!!! I will say I kept waiting for some serious angst to be in this book, but I was very surprised that wasn't the case. I am not a huge fan of inst-love and I felt like this book had it. All in all I did enjoy this book.


I give this book ***3.75** super sweet, sexy stars!!!
