I love that Tristan finally found someone (or should I say was found by someone-Alex) who cherishes him for his heart, mind, body and soul. I felt the emotion oozing out of the pages and it had my heart reeling. They really were made for each other.
Tristan’s love healed Alex, and boy did he need some healing. No longer in the military, Alex was finally free to live the life as the man he was on the inside and who he wanted to be and this was everything to him. He still had some tough challenges though.
Alex’s love healed Tristan. Tristan gave his heart too freely in the past and had been hurt so many times that he had a hard time trusting again. Alex shows him how good they can be together.
They go down a few bumpy roads, but get through them together. That is what is important as they realize how much stronger they are together. It’s really that simple yet that complex. I absolutely adore this couple. I think they are one of my faves yet!
Three cheers to Melissa Foster for this sexy, hot, did I mention sexy? alpha /alpha love story!!!
Tristan Brewer is a man who has been hurt in relationships, now he is taking a break. A break to gather together his thoughts and work out just what he does wrong when he's with other men. Poor Tristan, he feels everything with his heart, he never allows his head to guide him. But all that changes when a stranger walks into his workplace, The Taproom, and sends shivers throughout his body so quickly that he doesn't get a chance to think twice.
Alex Wells, a man with a broken past, has come to town to claim the inheritance that his grandmother has left him. He's here to stay and to sort out his mess of a life. Ex-Military, Alex has come to Harborside to start his life over, Army life made him hide the man he truly is and now he wants to change all of that. The minute he sees Tristan he knows everything is about to change - the attraction is that magnetic.
The thing I really loved about this story was the open and honest relationship that Tristan and Alex build. Step by step the walls and barricades are slowly broken down. Along the way, Ms Foster allows the reader to witness the friendship and the love that grows between these two men. It is simply magnificent to watch. The sex scenes are done beautifully.....they're not smutty .....they're perfect and I must say that they are exactly where they are needed to be. Those scenes were hot, so hot that my Kindle was almost ablaze.
The friends of Tristan were an added extra in this book. Yes they were characters that were introduced in previous books, but this does not affect the telling of this story. It was wonderful seeing the support this group of people had for these two men.
I cannot rate this story any lower than FIVE STARS but I would love to give it TEN STARS....it was that good.

Alex has come to Harbourside to live and work from his recently deceased grandmother home. His grandmother spoke highly of Tristan and Alex wants to see him for himself. He didn't expect there to be a spark between them. Both men have big issues to overcome. Together they can take on anything.
this book blew me away completely as both men are so loving, well-rounded and totally hot males. I highly recommend this book to everyone, even if you are unsure of M/M romance. The love between these two men is very real and they support each other in everything they do which endeared them to me more. I now have two totally smoking hot book boyfriends so thanks Melissa Foster I love this book and Harbourside so very much.
Move away from the M/M parts and you still have a couple who are fighting for their relationship and have faced so much prior to meeting. Come back to the M/M part and you have something that is HOT! I love reading M/M romance, they always seem to have more passion.
This book also has something else I love…… a strong ALPHA male in Alex; someone who’s a marine and due to this felt he needed to hide a part of himself because it made other people uncomfortable. Melissa addressed this problem perfectly and you get to watch Alex overcome this issue and move on in his life with Tristan.
Speaking of Tristan…… he is so loving, strong, supportive and understanding; everything you want in a partner and perfectly suited to Alex.
.We are already familiar with Tristan I think it was during Catching Cassidy and Dicovering Delilah that we got to know him and I remember him having problems with his then boyfriend Ian, this was probably over a year ago and now we're reading all about Tristan in his own story.
With all the stories and series that this fabulous author has written, wether it be past or current everything always comes together brilliantly, there might be a time delay but you can always think back to a particular book and think oh yes I remember that and it all makes sense further down the line.
You instantly fall in love with this story it's totally inevitable with all the characters that we have come to love but it's Tristan's turn to shine.
With everyone scrambling over and trying to attract the attention of the rather hot mystery man standing at the end of the bar you could only wonder what all the fuss is about. It was a brilliant opening and once introductions had been made and the realisation had set in that 'Alex' was only interested in one person you couldn't help get a little excited.
Tristan and Alex both had issues for very different reasons but they were perfect for each other and Melissa Foster does what she does best and delivers yet again subtle messages and her wonderful words of wisdom she always incorporates these so naturally throughout her storylines.
Tristan and Alex ended up having a little more in common than originally thought, it was Alex's Grandmother Arty, we had her to thank, she really did bring them together...everything happens for a reason.
As the storyline continues so does Tristan and Alex's relationship, there are a few issues and a couple of misunderstandings but nothing they can't work through and they do, their love for each other is enough to go above and beyond for each other.
It makes you realise just how much people end up living a lie just to fit in or to conform all because they think they will be frowned upon, it's a miserable fact and this story highlights this very problem very well.
Amongst other things!! There are plenty of endearing and touching moments, I did feel a little sad that Alex's Mother wasn't at Alex ceremony but at least she showed up towards the end all happy as well.
Beautiful epilogue by the way thank you..!!
As for Tru Blue... I think that is going to be one hell of a read something different again and Dylan Bad... well those stories seem to get steamier by the minute... all on pre-order..
For anyone who enjoyed this M/M take a look at Ann Lister (The Rock Gods) series... superb.!
This book was incredible from start to finish.
I did not know what to expect as had never read a M/M book before, well let me tell you it's sexy, intriguing, loving, funny, emotional, the list is endless, but most of all this book is one thing I never expected it to be..... deep. (excuse the pun ;) )
I have said this before but I love books that are emotional and charged and this book had both in bucket loads. The relationship between Tristan and Alex is intense from the start and they both fall quickly, despite their pasts. They both have hurdles to overcome and Melissa does not gloss over this, she writes with depth and meaning.
Melissa is without a doubt my favourite author and again she has not disappointed. I would give this book 10* if I could.
Brilliant Melissa, thank you :D
We've met Tristan lots of times in Harbourside and seen how his story begins, and how comfortable he is with his life and to see Alex, who is trying to come to terms with his life after suffering loss in the military and a change to civilian life, how they manage to find each other is beautifully written. Alex comes from a military background, has suffered an injury and finds it hard to let Tristan see that side of him. As their story progresses, Alex, with the help and love from Tristan, accepts himself and relaxes into life.
As with Melissa's stories, it is very easy to get caught up in the story and not put the book down. It's great to catch up with other friend from Harbourside too and see how their stories are progressing. I can't wait to return for the next instalment.
