Tempting Tristan Blog Tour +Review



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. *** "Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!" New York Times Bestseller Lauren Blakely "With her wonderful characters and resonating emotions, Melissa Foster is a must-read author!" New York Times Bestseller Julie Kenner HARBORSIDE NIGHTS is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real series of stand-alone romances that follows a group of friends who have known one another for years as "summer" friends, and now come together after college to build their lives. They're tough, edgy, and accepting--most of the time. This series is written in the same loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster with LGBT themes. 



“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.”

I have seen lots of Melissa’s books but this is the first one I have read and I loved it so much.  I will definitely be adding more of Melissa’s books to my TBR list.  This book is a M/M romance so if that is not your thing you don’t want to read this book.  Tristan is on a break from men after another bad relationship.  Alex has recently moved to Harborside after 8 years in the army.  Alex walks into the Taproom where Tristan works and that is all it takes.  Alex and Tristan both have their own issues.  Tristan from so many bad relationships where he was taken advantage of or mistreated.  Alex  from denying who he was for so long and from injuries sustained while in the military.  Tristan is weary of getting involved in another relationship and Alex is ready to take the step to having his first one.  After spending some time together Tristan knows Alex is different and he wants to try with Alex.  Will their insecurities and baggage get in the way?  Alex and Tristan help each other grow and overcome their baggage.  I feel for Alex so much.  He is dealing with guilt, anger, and so much more.  You may be able to be gay in the military but that doesn’t mean everyone accepts it.  Alex has lived the last eight years fighting who he really is and now he is finally free to be himself.  I really loved this book.  Tristan and Alex are such great characters.  Tristan’s friends are great and they have their own books in the Harborside series which I have added to my TBR list already and can’t wait to read them.  I can’t say enough about this book.  It’s a must read.  Fantastic job Melissa.
