The Verdict: This story has been building since the beginning of the series, so of course I couldn’t wait to find out what was in store for Lemon and Tristan!
Back when Tristan was deployed, he and Lemon sort of inadvertently became pen pals. He shot off a quick, funny letter, she responded with her usual wit, and a friendship grew from there. But what could have been their great love story was shot to hell when other people interfered, and Tristan and Lemon’s pride kept them both from revealing their true feelings for each other. Fast forward several years, and they’re both still harboring plenty of attraction, love, and loathing for each other. But one unexpected night together leads to an unplanned pregnancy, and they finally get their chance to make things right — if they can put aside their barbs and let their hearts show a little.
One of my favorite things about this series is the quick wit among all the characters, none more so than that between Tristan and Lemon. There’s no denying the sexual tension between them, but they won’t let down their guards for one second around each other. Fortunately, one night they let things go too far, and in forgoing the condom, they’ve finally created a situation in which they have no choice but to show some vulnerability.
The second Lemon told Tristan that she was pregnant, things started getting really good. Even as he was trying to hide his feelings long enough for her to get more comfortable with him, his best side began shining through. Of course, he’s a man, so he certainly screwed up once or twice, but he did his best to put Lemon and their child first. Likewise, she didn’t hesitate to uproot her life to start a future with him. Had their history been different, I probably would have thought they were both idiots for jumping into a hasty marriage, but even though they each claimed it was for the baby, it was clear it was for themselves, too. They were careful not to reveal too much, but they were also surprisingly honest with each other, and when the whole truth finally came out, it was impossible not to mourn the time they’d lost.
Lemon’s sister is a piece of work, and while I’m sure her story is coming up, there’s a part of me hoping it’s all miserable and angsty for a good long while. She certainly deserves it after what she pulled. But watching Lemon and Tristan reconnect was still awesome, and even though we definitely got a fully developed story, the pages flew by so fast! Their background story allowed the quick pace of their relationship to flow seamlessly, and their chemistry was beyond perfect. Love So Tempting is a fantastic, emotion-filled romance that had me rooting for the characters from page one.
***FicCentral received this book from Wordsmith Publicity for free in exchange for an honest review.
They say that love and hate are two sides to the same coin. Each are filled with passion that will consume you, to the point of no return. That is the case for Lemon McCoy and Tristan Lawson. The Lawson's and McCoy's have been feuding for as long as anyone can remember. Tristan and Lemon can't be in the same room with one another without slinging insults at one another. This has gone on, for as long as either can remember. Both are quick witted and able to slay one another with their sharp tongues in an instant.
While Tristan is deployed over seas, one sassy letter changes everything. Through correspondence with Lemon, they each start to see one another in a different light. The question is, will it last once he returns home?
I could not get enough of this book. I loved the connection and chemistry between Lemon and Tristan. Marquita Valentine has an uncanny ability to draw you in and never let you go. I felt a range of emotions while reading about the trials and each character went through. Marquita also does a fantastic job of writing in potential storylines for future books. If you are a fan of her other series, you will also love a few of the crossovers referenced in this book. I can't wait for more from the Lawson Brothers!
I have to move to another topic or I''m going to end up telling you the whole story. All I can say is that though some things or people got in the way, fate stepped in and got them back on track. I could tell they loved each other so much, but there was also that scared feeling things would go back to the way they were. Oh and there is a huge plot twist that you will not believe!! It is so amazing...I almost did a happy dance when i read it.
I love every one of Marquita Valentine's books. And not just because they are hers. She writes the most amazing, complex, stories with characters that i either want to give a hug or a kick lol. Usually, a hug, and if it's a kick, they redeem themselves and I change my mind. Marquita Valentine is a master of love and creating stories that involve your heart immediately. My heart was definitely involved with Tristan and Lemon. And oh, I LOVE their names...they fit them perfectly.
I could write about how Ms. Valentine wrote a beautiful story with complex characters dealing with difficult situations...and yes, its true, she did do that. But, what I want to say more than anything is that she wrote a story that made me happy and hopeful that if these two can navigate through what they had to go through...there is hope for everyone to have an HEA. And, just let me say, be sure and have tissues when you get to chapter 17...i cried, but smiled at the same time. It was just completely awesome, amazing, etc.
I give this story 5 stars with absolutely no reservations. I would give it more if I could. I hope you buy this book and read it. If you haven't met the Lawson's, start at the beginning and make your way to Love So Tempting. This story as well as the series is one of those you will reread time and time again.
