Review: Tempting the Best Man by J. Lynn

*** This is an Adult Romance which contains matter not suitable for Young Readers***

(I'm serious, if you are under 18, don't read this review. I'm watching you!!)

Adult Contemporary Romance

Madison Daniels has worshiped 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 Review

So, Madison Daniels has been fretting about attending her brother's wedding. Not because of the marriage, but because her lifelong friend/love with be there. Doesn't sound so bad, right? Well for Madison, it seems like it will be a week from Hell. You see, Madison has pined after Chase for most of her life. Chase is her brother's best friend and Madison has always been around them. I wont go into details, but Madison has felt rejection with Chase in the past. 

Madison is not pleased to learn that the vineyard has overbooked their cabins and she is forced to room with hottie Chase. As they are settling into their "honeymoon suite," they get into a heated debate that ends in a HOT HOT kiss. Chase freaks out and tells Madison to forget it ever happened. I'm going to leave you with that little snippet because this story is too good to write the entire review. You need to savor this goodness for yourself! 

Let me just say this book was FRICKIN' HOT!! Holy, HOT DAMN is all I can say. I feel like a hormonal teenager right now. This book was so hot, but not smutty hot. It was just the right amount of hotness to make you blush and need to fan yourself. Yeah, I am aware that I am saying hot too much, but DAMN! That's what this book should be named, The Hot-capades! That's not even a word but that is how I feel about it. Oh, and did I mention that it alternates POV's between Madison and Chase?? Oh Lord have mercy! Chase is so effin sexy. Jennifer L. Armentrout is a sexual frustration GENIUS!! If you haven't heard me say it before, I'm saying it again, you need to read her books NOW!! I'm not kidding, get your butt onto Amazon or BN and buy them, or you can check your library. Trust me, you want to buy them, because you will want to read them again. I'm still smacking myself in the face for taking 2 months to read Shadows and Obsidian.
Okay, I'm done raving...I need to take a cold shower asap!
