Blurb:Tempting Tristan is a stand-alone M/M romance featuring two sexy, hot alphas.
Fresh off the heels of yet another bad relationship, Tristan Brewer is taking a break from men to try and 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 forget his stint with the institution that allows but doesn't necessarily accept, and live the life he's always dreamed of.
The chemistry between Tristan and Alex ignites from the moment they meet, and the more time they spend together the hotter the flames become. But the closer Tristan gets, 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.
Tristan “T” Brewer has a job where he meets new people every day. Alex Wells is the perfect star to many a woman’s wet dream. These two men show that not all scars are on the outside. It’s not long before prejudice is brought into the storyline. This is what’s sad in this world. There are always going to be people who will judge us by what they see. Being these are two guys some of their talk is very descriptive so only you can decide what you’re comfortable with.
Our author has her characters comfortable in their own skin. I don’t know about you, but as I read I see two people trying to build a relationship. All we want is to love and be loved. What I loved about this author is the way she went about building that relationship. They got to know each other and we got to know them at the same time. Their conversations seem so plausible. Nothing was rushed and we got to see other characters that cared about Tristan. One good friend was Brandon – would love to know more about him.
Ms. Foster also creates a community that you want to go visit. I can imagine going to Harborside (since it is in Massachusetts) and trying to find the perfect spot to reread this story. But then why not go one step further and take a vacation and bring the whole series with me. Even though this is a stand-alone there are characters that appear that you will want to know more about. If you’ve never read the author’s work before, this would be a great introduction.
