Book Tour / Review: Tempting Tristian

Tempting Tristan By Melissa Foster

Harborside Nights Series #3
Releasing October 19, 2016
EverAfter Romance
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.

Alex was left scarred in more then one way when he was injured while on service and his loving grandmother died. He has been hiding his true self while on service and PDA isnt' his thing. On the advice of his grandmother he is now at Harborside. Meanwhile there is Tristan, he is out and proud and loves his life. Alex and Tristan got a lot to deal with before they can fully be together but will learn to deal with problems that come their way.

Loved this book, I don't come across LGBT books as often as i'd like and its pretty great to branch out when it comes to reading. I loved this book it was interesting getting Alex and Tristan's perspective. This book was pretty steamy and dirty so if that isn't for you you aren't going to want to pick this book up because this book was pretty hott sessions throughout. I loved the characters, getting to see Alex's POV as being a military man and gay and how conflicting that maybe to other at least. Then there is the Scars he has that left him feeling self conscious leaving him to push others away. I loved how accepting the characters were in this book in more then one way. I loved seeing Tristan give Alex the push he needs to challenge him. I enjoyed the book it was pretty great. 

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.
