A M/M Contemporary Romance
Harborside Nights #3
Releasing Oct 19th, 2016
World Literary Press
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.

I never thought the M/M Genre would appeal to me, but now after reading three of these type stories, I happy to say, if written correctly, I really enjoy these stories.
I have just recently become a fan of Melissa Foster’s books and this is the first M/M genre book of hers I have read. I really enjoyed this book and the characters that we meet. My only real negative about this book was that it didn’t WOW me like I was hoping it would. I felt it dragged a little more than I usually like. I was actually hoping to see a little more drama. The drama that is created in this story really only exists within the characters themselves.
Now with saying that I also liked this storyline because I thought she gave us an accurate portrayal of what a homosexual person in the military goes through. My heart went out to Alex so much. He had some serious hurdles to overcome. Not only physical but mental also. That’s where I fell in love with Tristan….because it takes a strong man to help and stand by someone whose scars are more than skin deep. This book was more of an emotional read than I was expecting, but I loved that it hit many of my different emotions. I thought the story flowed well, but like I said the pace of the story was a little slow for my liking. I will say that this book was just as steamy as all the other Melissa Foster books I have read. She really knows how to melt a kindle 😉
Tempting Tristan is the third book in this series, but can be read as a standalone. Yes we see other characters from previous books, but you won’t be lost. Melissa does a fantastic job filling in the blanks on who everyone is.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Melissa’s books. Also if you like a M/M story then this is a book you should read. I think true fans of this genre will really enjoy this book.
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.
