This is the story of Bentley and Tristan - two broken people who have a past that they both are trying to overcome that happen to meet by chance. When they are connected together, they are no longer broken - they are made whole, made right. It's as if they have been trying to find one another their whole lives to be shown what true love is!
This is the debut book for author Arie Lane and it does not disappoint! If you love witty banter, twists and turns that come out of nowhere, a strong independent heroine who runs from the past and a hot as sin alpha male who has his own demons chasing him - you are in for one hell of a treat!
Bentley Celeste is a romance author who is on hiatus from the world due to a very dark and disturbing past. She has ran from the past for as long as she can remember and kept herself shut off from the outside world due to fear. An old friend of her sister's asks her to come to an author event and she obliges, but she is nervous as hell! And you can totally see it as the scenes unfold! Bentley does not expect to get her world turned upside by Tristan Reece, the delectable cover model who is cocky as hell!
Neither Bentley nor Tristan realize what this chance encounter will do to the rest of their lives. Tristan pushes Bentley's buttons in a way that no other person has in a long time. She can't believe all the foul mouth statements that she voices as she talks to him and why he seems to get under her skin so quickly. Tristan doesn't understand why he is drawn to this "fun-size" woman who clearly hates his guts. But he takes a chance and moves over 800 miles to be near her due to Bentley's past rearing its ugly head at the event. Bentley tries to fight their connection, but fate seems to wiggle its way in and shines a little light on the couple.
As the story unfolds, you watch the characters struggle with their past, insecurities and faults. You watch them develop the relationship as well as mature as characters throughout the situations. The emotional roller coaster hits on every stop in this book as well - love, happiness, frustration, anger, sadness, pain, etc. But these are all emotions that real couples go through because nothing is perfect - it's REAL love.
Real love is about finding the one who will compliment you as a person and who cherishes you. Real love is about taking a journey with another person to find true happiness. It is something that takes effort and dedication on a daily basis in order to be successful. There are times that will be difficult, but it is about how you handle those difficult times to see if it is real love.
As the couple begins to realize they do truly love each other and have found that one person who makes them whole, the past seems to come back to bite them in the ass and create one more hurdle for them to endure. However, this hurdle is one of the biggest they both will have to face. Its the one person that Bentley has always been scared of and has never fought back against. Its also the one person who she has always tried to get to love her with no avail. How do you overcome the gut-wrenching, all-consuming fear that this person evokes? Bentley believes she has to run, but Tristan thinks they have to stand together and face it head on!
Now this book does end in a cliffhanger - but the second book is released in April! I do not usually read cliffhangers, but I believe this book ends at a great point. Their journey has been a roller coaster so far and they both still have secrets and fears that are dominating life. We had to expect at some point that the past would catch up to them - that's life. And finally it did - in an extreme way. A lot of times these situations cause crossroads in our path and we have to decide which road to take. I think this is why its perfect. The cliffhanger leaves us at a crossroad!
Bentley did the smart thing and left home to find somewhere faraway to start fresh, away from her hateful mother. Her mother wanted her dead and had the chance but was unable to finish what she had started.
Bentley is an author who goes to author signings to meet and greet her fans but tries her best to keep it under wraps so her mother is unable to locate her. At one signing she attends a very attractive man bumps into her and their banter is quite entertaining. He is the cover model for one of her friends, who also is an author.
Tristan the cover model is attracted to Bentley but it seems more so because she carries the facade that she is completely uninterested in him. They both have secrets from their pasts that they would like to forget and don't care to share them with others. But there comes a time that they need to begin to trust someone with their pasts in order to hopefully fix what is broken or somehow learn to move forward.
This is a must read even though there are very dark horrible events that shape the characters lives. You will be on an emotional journey especially with Bentley, after learning what she has endured but you will also see some good things. She is a very strong and no nonsense kind of woman. Tristan is a very strong and cocky hot guy who knows what he wants and go after it. Their encounters often end with Tristan doing something to piss her off but the bantering will have you laughing.
Can't wait for next book!
Tryst is different from other "romance" novels or "erotic" novels, it is both with real life problems added in.
Bentley is an author who has had one hell of a life with a mother who hated her since the day she was born. And Tristan is a cover model who has issues trusting anyone to actually love him and stay with him. When he slams into Bentley's life sparks fly and he knows he needs her. This story will have you on the edge of your seat wanting to know if they can build a relationship and can it survive all the problems they have.
This is one of the funniest and hottest books I have read so far. Anyone who loves reading will love this story!!!
