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.

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. 

"Tempting Tristan" by Melissa Foster.  Well, what can I say?  Ms. Foster has once again written a tale that is emotionally gripping yet sweet and tender.   Our main characters, Tristan and Alex are about as swoon worthy as a male can get!  They are both now high up on my book boyfriend list! (yes, even though they are gay!)  Tristan, having gone through a recent breakup, is wary to give his heart away.  Alex, recently out of the military, is finally able to be his true self yet is fearful due to the scars that being in the military has caused - both physical and emotional.  What they cannot deny are the sparks flying and the connection that is astounding.  I adored how these two cherished each other and supported one another.  It was such a pleasure watching the love grow between them.  Of course, there are obstacles along the way, but such is life.  Ms. Foster has written a beautiful love story that encompasses the true meaning of a soul mate and true love.  The only small drawback I found was the switching between the two characters' POV.  While I do enjoy stories that use this technique, sometimes it was switched quite often and I would have to check to see which was speaking/thinking.  Despite that, "Tempting Tristan" has become one of my favorites that I will certainly re-read and recommend it over and over.  (received copy for honest review)
