[Review Tour] Tempting Tristan by Melissa Foster


Tempting Tristan is a stand-alone M/M romance featuring two sexy, lovable alpha heroes.


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.



4.5 Stars!

The story has laughs, pain, and heartbreak. I was pulled right into this story. This is a M/M story.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first...
Catching Cassidy (Harborside Nights #1; Love in Bloom #55)
Discovering Delilah (Harborside Nights #2; Love in Bloom #56)

This is Tristan and Alex’s story. Tristan is taking a break from relationships after a bad break up. Alex walks into his bar with his own demons. Alex has hidden his sexual identity for years. Now he does not want to continue that. The chemistry between these two is hot but will it last? At the first obstacle will Tristan find out that Alex does not want everyone to know they are together? Will Tristian be okay with Alex when he gets a different person when Alex returns to base? Or will Alex end up losing Tristian because of the scars he carries? Can these two make it work or will past hurts muddy the waters for them?

I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.

4.5 Stars!

Another hit from Melissa Foster! I find myself surprised and surprised again with how much I fall for this author's writing. Not sure why when each book I have read has been a hit but nonethless... it is always nice stepping back into her world of words.

Tempting Tristan was the perfect M/M romance full of steam, passion, intensity, and curiousity. This book spoke deep into my heart and soul... melting me into a puddle of happy goo by the end. I devoured this fast read... the words grabbing hold of me and not letting go until they were done with me.

Tristan and Alex....! What an amazing pair! They are going to make your breathing accelerate and heart beat faster. I swooned, smiled, laughed, got mad, shed a few tears, and eventually, fell head over heels in love. Their story... their passion.. everything just rolled right off of the pages. While it may not have always been easy, it was definitely worth it.

I highly recommend this book.
