Blurb:

Tempting Tristan is a stand-alone M/M romance featuring two sexy, hot alphas.

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.

Excerpt from Tempting Tristan (A sexy standalone M/M romance)
© Melissa Foster 2016

She rolls her pretty green eyes. “No, Tristan. Because the hottest man on the planet just parked his motorcycle and he’s heading in here. All of my female customers are drooling, and I’m sure you’ll see a flock of them coming in any minute now. Meanwhile, I’m stuck outside and soon I’ll have a pier full of empty tables.” She grabs a handful of napkins and waves them at me with a smirk. “Drool rags.”

“Dibs,” Charley says as she whips up a cocktail.

I laugh and hold my hands up. “I’m on a hiatus from all things male, so be my guest.” My ex, Ian, is a self-absorbed ass, and I was an idiot for letting him treat me like shit. Which is why I’m taking a break from men—even if it kills me. It’s been weeks since we broke up and I moved into my buddy Wyatt’s house. Wyatt and his twin sister, Delilah, own the Taproom. They inherited it when their parents were killed in a car accident a little more than a year ago.

“I’m sure he’s straight anyway,” Livi says. “The guy swaggers like a stud.”

“Hey, gay guys can swagger like studs,” I tease.

“I know that.” Livi peers out the pass-through window to the outside seating area and tosses her blond hair over her shoulder. “You’ll see what I mean. He’s a total badass.”

I tend to my customers as the girls discuss the badass hot guy, and when the front door opens, I can’t help but let my eyes drift over. Livi and Charley fall silent, ogling what truly might be the hottest guy on the planet. Linebacker shoulders fill the doorframe. The godlike creature is carrying a shiny black motorcycle helmet in one very large hand. His white T-shirt is stretched so tight across his chest I can see every ripple of his shredded abs, and his deliciously defined biceps are seriously struggling to be set free from his short sleeves.Tear, baby, tear.

He steps inside and runs a hand through his dirty-blond hair. Deep-set, brooding eyes slide over the customers sitting at the bar, sweep over Charley and Livi, and finally land on me. Charley whimpers, and Livi makes a sound in the back of her throat, both mimicking what I’m feeling, though my mouth is too dry to make a sound.


Absolutely adored this story by Melissa Foster!

When Alex comes back to Harborside, he's still fresh from the war. Dealing with his own demons-adapting to his new normal, and dealing with the loss of his grandmother to boot. He's got a lot of baggage.

Tristan knows of Alex thank's to his sweet friend who passed away. Alex's grandmother talked about Alex to Tristan, all the time. But Tristan isn't sure that Alex swings his way.

What starts as a casual friendship with sparks, turns into a love for the ages.

Get caught up in this sweet, yet raw and real romance. One Click this 4 star read today!

Tempting Tristan by Melissa Foster is a great love story about battling ghosts and becoming something more.

Tristan has always known who he was, but he hasn't found the right guy yet. That is until Alex walks into the bar he works at. Alex is hot, but Tristan isn't 100% sure what to think of him.

Alex heard all about Tristan from his grandmother and always wanted to meet him. After missing her funeral because he was in the hospital due to an injury sustained in Afghanistan, he seeks Tristan out...and falls for him almost immediately.

PTSD and the army mentality about gay men keep coming between them. Can they overcome? Can Alex get over everything that was ingrained during his time in the army?

While it did have factors of instalove, it worked in this story because of how it was handled. The two men knew of each other before they ever met. The story and characters were well thought out, and I like how the author tackled a very hot topic today. 4 stars! If you like M/M, one click today.
