Tempting Tristan:Tristan Brewer Harborside Nights #3 by Melissa Foster
Date of Publication: October 19, 2016
Tempting Tristan is a stand-alone M/M romance featuring two sexy, lovable alpha heroes.
TRISTAN AND ALEX
Fresh off the heels of yet another bad relationship, Tristan Brewer is taking a break from men to try to 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 live the life he’s always dreamed of and forget his stint with the institution that allows but doesn’t necessarily accept.
The chemistry between Tristan and Alex ignites from the moment they meet, and the more time they spend together, the hotter the flames burn. But the closer they become, 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.

My Review –
4.5 Look at my Heart Stars!!
*I volunteered to review a Copy of this book from Rock Star PR*
Thank you so very much Rock Star PR!! I am extremely honored and grateful!! 😀
This was my second time reading Ms.Foster’s work and I enjoyed every second of this emotional and hot as sin Romance!! I knew from the last book I read by this author that she knows how to create a story with a lot of heart and boy did this book have that!! Tempting Tristan is about Tristan Brewer who is trying his best to get over a bad breakup and when Alex Wells walks into the bar he works at he begins feeling like himself again but not everything is easy nor a quick fix.
I liked the fact that both Alex and Tristan were two kindred spirits in the sense that they’d went through some tough things in their lives. Even though the attraction was quick I loved how they wanted to do things right in their own way and get to not only know more about each other but to bond as well. Their pain became my own and my heart hurt for both of them.
Ms.Foster created a novel that shows how hard it is to pick up the pieces and keep going after you experience something so painful such a loss or heartbreak. It also shows that digging beyond the surface of what someone else shows you can not only connect you in such an amazing way but understand that person more clearly. This book shows that no life is perfect but how the things you’ve been through build you into the person that you are today.
I found this book to be sexy, heartbreaking, sweet, fascinating, intense, and thought provoking! I’m looking forward to picking up more of her work as soon as possible especially the rest of The Harborside Nights books because I’ve got to know more about those secondly character’s!! 🙂
Will they fight to stay together no matter the obstacles? Or Will the pain of the past be too much for them to handle? It’s up to them to decide and things are bound to get a lil messy. One-Click Today to find out!! You dont want to miss these two sizzling and fantastic men!! Be prepared to have your heart beating crazily fast and for your cheeks to be as red as a sunburn you get from laying out on the beach!! I hope you adore this tale!! 4.5 Stars all around!! 🙂
