REVIEW - Tempting the Best Man by J.Lynn

Tempting the Best Man 
 I am really pleased to be able to participate in J.Lynn’s blog tour for Tempting the Best Man through Entangled Publishing Indulgence.

Author: J.Lynn
Pages: 172
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Entangled Publishing Indulgence

Synopsis. (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…

REVIEW: 5 out of 5 stars

Tempting the Best Man was kindly provided to me by Entangled Publishing Indulgence.

I am a HUGE Jennifer L. Armentrout fan so when I found out she was releasing a contemporary romance novel under the pen name J.Lynn it was an instant add for me and it definitely didn’t fail to disappoint.

Madison Daniels has been in love with Chase Gamble pretty much her whole life but she has always been his best friends little sister, someone he looked out for, protected and treated like a sister of his own until a night at one of his clubs where he regrettably made a move on her and therefor changed their carefree relationship.

Maddie’s brother is getting married, she is the Maid of Honor and Chase the Best Man so they were inevitably about to be thrown together but when they arrive at the venue there is only one room available and they are forced to share, not an easy task when they had been tip-toeing around each other for so long.

You could tell from the very onset that the chemistry and attraction shared between Maddie and Chase was strong but they played around one another and never made a move, for reasons each of their own but when they finally did come together there were so many mixed emotions, feelings hurt and miscommunications that it wasn’t going to be an easy ride for them.

I adored these two characters; they were the perfect match but she didn’t want a broken heart and he could never see himself in a long term relationship especially with Maddie who he saw as being off limits. Chase in particular was reluctant to get involved because of his fathers infidelities, he felt he would turn out exactly like him which was quite sad but everyone around them knew they would make the perfect match and pushed them in any way they could.

When I get so used to loving a series and author and they move to a different genre I must admit to feeling the nerves but Oh.My.Gosh! Ms Lynn/Armentrout is truly amazing; she is brilliant with her YA novels but just as good in Adult Romance; I absolutely loved this book - the characters, setting, plot was perfect for me and boy were those smexy scenes written well.

Tempting the Best Man is a funny, light, humorous and romantic story which follows a trope I have come to love – friends to lovers. I really hope Ms Lynn decides to make this a series and write about Chase’s cheeky brothers.

  1. I was a little interested in this one, but I passed on it. And now I am kicking myself (hard!) for not getting this! I did not know it was by Jennifer Armentrout, I've heard amazing things about her writing. This book sounds like it was a lot of fun, and it was nice and short too. I'll have to look into it again. Great review
