Tempting the Best Man
By: J. Lynn (Jennifer L. Armentrout)
Series: Gamble Brothers
Genre: New Adult/ Romantic Comedy
Cover Rating: 3/5 Stars
From Goodreads: Madison Daniels has worshipped her brother's best friend since they were kids. Everyone thinks she and Chase Gamble would make the perfect couple, but there are two major flaws in their logic. 1) Chase has sworn off relationships of any kind, and 2) after blurring the line between friends and lovers for one night four years ago, they can't stop bickering.
Forced together for her brother's wedding getaway, Chase and Madison decide to call a truce for the happy couple. Except all bets are off when they're forced to shack up in a tacky 70’s honeymoon suite and survive a multitude of "accidents" as the family tries to prove their "spark" can be used than for more than fighting. That is, if they don't strangle each other first…
My Thoughts: I laughed, I cried, I fell in love with another one of Jennifer's men- Chase Gamble! I read this book in less then two hours and it lived up to JLA's highly awesome standards. What I really love about this is that it fits in that (somewhat) new genre of "New Adult". This is not your mother's harlequin romance or her "dirty smutt" books she hides under her pillow from your dad. The characters are witty and real. We don't have Fabio coming in to rescue some blonde bimbo with her face in orgasmic bliss. We get your older brother's smoking hot best-friend who just happens to be the ultimate smooth talker. And we get Madison- someone who is like your own best friend- a smart, funny and adorable girl who doesn't take crap from anyone... besides Chase, of course.
Not only that, but this book is totally relatable. Who of us hasn't had crushes on our big brothers best friends? Sure, they don't usually turn out to be the love of our lives, but most of us have been there at some point. Idolizing the guy who is over-protective over you and is always around your house when your a teenager.
So, is it hot? Oh, Definitely. My kindle was smoking while I read it. But it's also more then that. It's a sweet, feel good, romantic comedy that will have you flipping pages until it's over.
