Looking for your next sexy M/M romance?

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.

Alex Wells has spent 8 years in the Army, to finally have some stability in his life, but that means hiding who he truly is! But after loosing his grandmother and nearly dying while deployed and then spending 8 months in hospital, Alex was determined to start his life again, in the place that felt most like home…Harborside.

The only person Alex wants to contact, is the one person his Grandmother  constantly talked about and and person he has never met…Tristan Brewer.

When a devastatingly handsome man struts into the bar that Tristan works at, he is second guessing his self-imposed ban of another relationship. But from the moment Alex and Tristan spoke, sparks flew between them; but with them both dealing with demons in their past, will they ever be able to move past it to explore what they have together? Or will it crash and burn.

Now I have not really revealed too much about this book, and that is for a very good reason! It so freaking amazing! I don't want to spoil it for you. I'm telling you Melissa Foster has knocked it out of the park with this M/M book. But I will pre-war you…if you can't handle hit sex between 2 men! This ain't the book for you!

I cannot even explain just how freaking hot this book is! I have read a lot of M/M books recently, but this book blows all the others out of the water! The plot is simply delicious! And the ending, so freaking beautiful, that I cried.

When it comes to the character, you cant help but love both Tristan and Alex! They are both strong, loving but essentially insecure people, whom have suffered so much is the past, and are trying to work towards a better life, which they manage to find with each other! And their story truly pulls your heartstrings.

When it comes to the writing and plot; it is clear that it's is a Melissa Foster masterpiece! Well researched, written at a steady pace, without overdone fluff! It is simply another divine Melissa Foster story, to fall in love with!

I give Tempting Tristan 5 stars!

“Can I ask you something? You don’t have to answer.”

Tristan shrugs. “Have at it.”

“Why were you taking a break? I get that your ex was a prick, but is there more to it?”

He looks down the street, across the street, and then his hand cruises through his hair as it has so often that I’ve already come to expect it when he’s nervous.

“Ian was a prick, but the rest is going to make me sound like a pussy,” he admits.

“I’ve only known you a day, and I already know nothing can make you sound like a pussy.”

He meets my gaze, and his jaw tightens. He lifts his chin and I recognize the struggle between feeling proud and worrying about looking weak. I fight that battle on a daily basis.

“I give away my heart too easily, and I end up getting hurt.”

His eyes never leave mine, and that trust, that confidence, is the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen.

“I was right. Nothing can make you sound like a pussy.” I slide my hand to the hard ridge of his jaw and lean in closer. “I’ve never given my heart away. That makes you braver than me.”
