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…
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
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.
I have been looking forward to reading Tempting Tristan, the newest Harborside Nights book by Melissa Foster, for some time now. I knew it was going to be a fun spicy book, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was so much more! Now don’t get me wrong… this book was incredibly hot, but it also had an amazing story line. Sometimes it is hard to find both aspects in one book.
Tempting Tristan is the 3rd book in the Harborside Nights series, and a complete standalone. I have not read the first two books and was able to follow the story with no issues. I will definitely be going back and reading the other books in the series since I loved this one so much! Tempting Tristan tells the story of two men who have both been scarred, one internally and the other externally. It describes the struggles, the passion, the frustration, the friendship and so much more. For those who have not read a MM story yet, I recommend you give this book a shot before passing on it. 5+ stars!
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.
“Okay?” he pants out.
I nod, knowing if I open my mouth, I want to fuck you, is going to come out.
