Book Overview

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.

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.


“Okay?” he pants out.


I nod, knowing if I open my mouth, I want to fuck you, is going to come out.

My Review


That was so sweet. Through out the whole book I felt giddy. To be honest it waa probably the simplest M/M romance I've ever read. Simplest but it made me feel like an little girl watching a romance movie, squealing and anticipating. Granted I haven't really read much M/M but I've had my fair share of those books and most are intense and really scorching. With this book I only felt all sweetness from both characters.

I wasn't very partial with Alex at first Because like most, I failed to understand what he is feeling but as I went on with the story it became more apparent to me how he is the type of man everyone would be lucky to have. With Tristan, everything was just easy. I loved his character. I love how easy it is for him to understand people even if it has a negative impact on him and I love how cute he acts sometimes in general.

I enjoyed the book. It actually got me through the few days. I've been busy the past weeks and I've read books a little later than the expected schedule but with this book I find myself wanting to have time to read. It was sweet and very very irresistible.
