Publisher's Summary

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.  

Harborside Nights is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real series of stand-alone romances that follows a group of friends who have known one another for years as "summer" friends and now come together after college to build their lives. They're tough, edgy, and accepting - most of the time. This series is written in the same loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by New York Times and USA Today best-selling, award-winning author Melissa Foster, with LGBT themes.

✫✫ 4.5 Stars ✫✫

Since only this book is on Audio so far I haven't read books 1 & 2 but I loved book 3! These guys were sweet, sexy and needed each other so much. I think what I like the most was how Tristan pushed Alex and how much Alex let him in. These two have instant chemistry. Tristan is pretty comfortable in his life but Alex has baggage. Together they work through his issues and they find their way. Such a great love story and SUPER hot too!!

Tristan's friends were also a great part of the story line and I hope the other books are about some of them (and they come out on audio). This couple melted my heart completely. If you like MM this is a must listen!

Teddy & Jacob ROCKED this audiobook. I love both of their work and together they are complete rock stars!! Great narration choice!

so anything by Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan

so here's the thing I will listen to anything by Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan because their voices are so rich and inviting and lovely. They just draw you in. The story however is awesome easy and full of fluff. I mean there is no angst. No conflict but the inner turmoil the two mean must overcome. its hurt comfort. and poetic at times.

Good book!

This was such a great read and Melissa Foster did not disappoint with this book! I enjoyed reading her first M/M book and the return characters were great as usual. I liked the story line of Alex and Tristan as they over came barriers and issues in their lives as they were real problems that people face in life. The connection between the main characters was strong and hot. She showed that you can be an alpha and still have a tender side as well. The narration by Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan was enjoyable as the pair brought this story to life. I loved this book from start to finish and look forward to more from her!

Absolutely Magnificent!

Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton are two of my favorite male narrators. Listening to the two of them narrate this love story was amazing. They nailed it.

Alex is an injured soldier who has moved back to the hometown of his grandmother after her death. He meets Tristan the man his grandmother has been telling him about during their conversations while he was overseas. Alex is dealing with the trauma of his injury, hiding his sexuality and dealing with the death of his grandmother. Tristan is a caring person who wears his heart on his sleeve and is accustomed to guys treating him like garbage. Tristan is guarded with Alex and does his best to protect his heart.

I absolutely loved this book. Melissa Foster nailed it. The relationship between the two guys is intense and emotional.

I really wanted to like it

I wanted to like this book but the insta-love and the load of angst didn’t do it for me. Tristan and Alex were not realistic, one minute Tristan is all he’s the man of my dreams then he’s I’ve been so hurt let me backpedal. Through all of this he’s pushing Alex to let go of his past and demons. Contradiction much, pot/kettle?? I think Alex is the most consistent character, naive but consistent.

Hott!

I loved this story and all the characters in this series. The love shared between Tristan and Alex is so pure and all consuming. It made me yearn for something so real. The inmate scenes between them were down right intoxicating. The narrator voice matched perfectly!

hit and a miss

Story has great potential but sorely missed the mark could use work Story moved too fast , the personal connection between characters seemed force , and the sexual tension is trying too hard to be hot and steamy and is just all over the place. That and the sexual interactions and intercourse were cringeworthy at times and alittle offputting.

I have read several Man on Man books but this is the first I have returned.

it might be perfect for some but not for me.

Tempting Tristan was a 4 star read that was sweet, hot with no angsts or drama.

I really enjoyed this book. I gave the performance a 3 star rating simply because the narrators were very monotone. They both had very nice voices, but you could hear that they were reading. Their voices did not show emotion and that really sucks for the author because there were a lot of feelings in this book. So I believe I would have enjoyed this book more if I would have read it instead of listened. But the story was great!

!! Holiday Magic!! Wow❤❤❤

I am reviewing this after the holiday festivities and found this book was soooo satisfying. 👌👌
The cover page itself is hot!
Tristan and Alex had instant chemistry and hot passion for one another.
Tristan, so sweet and transparent, kept falling in love and gave so much of himself he couldn't escape continued heartbreak or find that one true love deserving of his sincerity until Alex.
Alex served in the army and when he left the Army, he was emotionally and physically scarred.
But Tristan was that person Alex needed to free and help him resolve his fears.
The author wrote a really tender and wonderful love story with great characters.
And how could this book not be fantastically narrated when you have two of my favorite and top narrators, Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton. I love and crush on them both. Heck, that's why I used a credit and selected this book.
All I can say again is, sexy, romantic, great story and excellent narration.
However, If you can't handle very descriptive and mature themes, don't touch this one. You'll get burned because its sizzling hot!!!!!.💣💥💣💥💣🔥🔥🔥
