Review Submitted By: Korena for Alpha Book 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.
(Received ARC in exchange for our honest review.)
Let me start by saying I don’t care to read M/M romance. This is an incredibly written story with just as much emotions as any romance can have.
Tristan has issues with self-esteem because of his past relationship with Ian. Alex has issues from the military and not able to express himself.
This is an amazing story of two individuals learning to trust and love and conquer life’s obstacles.
Melissa Foster writes with feelings and articulates with beautiful words. It is a sappy love story.
