Harborside Nights #3 by Melissa Foster
Date of Publication: October 19, 2016
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 faul-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 & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster with LGBT themes.
My first Melissa Foster book, and OMG!
First, I have been waiting for this book for what seemed like FOREVER. I swear it seems like so long ago when I saw that this was an upcoming release. The story of Alex and Tristan intrigued me so I absolutely signed up to help promote this one! And when it showed up on my kindle, I DEVOURED it!
First-Tristan-GAH-I just love this guy so much. He’s the type of guy that everyone loves, he has tons of friends and horrible taste in men. He leads with his heart, not his head-and often times that has lead to nothing but heartache for him. When he meets Alex, he is on a self imposed break from dating.
Enter Alex, sexy, broody, damaged, artist and military man Alex. Tristan does not know Alex, but Alex knows all about Tristan, through his grandmother who Tristan was friends with. Alex has returned home after leaving the military, and hopes to find a friend-if not more, in Tristan. Alex is guarded though. Can Tristan be what he needs? Is Alex enough for Tristan to open his heart again?
And these two together #bitesknuckles. HOT! They have obstacles they have to overcome, real and perceived, and once they get there….get to that point…LOVE! Seriously, I can’t recommend this book enough. It really was a good book and I look forward to reading more from Melissa!
