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.

Tempting Tristan is the story of two men who find that they have a wonderful connection the moment they meet and find that they are each other’s happily ever after. The book is a sweet love story with not much angst and two sexy men who will give you an enjoyable read.

The book tells the story of Alex and Tristan who finds that they have a wonderful chemistry the moment they meet. Alex just returned from war and is weary of hiding who he is and Tristan just got out of a relationship. They both have their own past and demons and have issues to resolve if they want a relationship. What I liked the most is that the author takes us through the progression of their relationship really well. Even though it is an almost insta-love the way they take their relationship forward is believable and endearing and sweet. You will believe in their love and want them to have their happily ever after. They both worked at their issues and tried to find common ground and sort them out. I liked that the author gave them their own trials to overcome before giving them their HEA. The author has done a wonderful job in exploring their sexual chemistry too. The sex scenes are steamy and really hot. The book is also filled with bevy of secondary characters who take the story forward in a completely engrossing manner.

Tempting Tristan is a sweet love story which will give you an enjoyable ride. If you don’t mind insta-love and wants a sweet love story this is your book..!!
