Review: Tempting the Best Man by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Tempting the Best Man by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Published: April 23, 2012

Read via Kindle

Synopsis: 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:  I had been wanting to read this book for a long time. I had been reading great things about this book as well as 'Tempting The Player' and so I picked up both. I have now in less than twenty four hours read both books. I loved the basis for this story Madison has been in love with Chase for years, but Chase has always looked at Madison as the younger sister of his best friend Mitch. Doesn't help matters any that all three Gamble brothers base their need to stay away from relationships off of the way that their dad treated their mother. Chase and Madison ran into one another again at the weekend wedding for her brother Mitch. Right away it was clear that Madison has a thing for Chase, but Chase just never seems to see that so when they get stuck together in the only available cabin things really start to heat up between them.

Chase really does his best in this story to stay as far away from Madison as he can, but it's like he's a moth drawn to the flame no matter how hard he tries he just can't stay away from her. While I was reading this I kept thinking to myself how much rejection can one girl take before she's finally had enough??? At one point I even wanted to reach through the book to slap Chase when he suggested they have sex to get it out of their systems so they can go back to being friends again. That's all I'll say you'll have to read the story to find out how their story plays out(Wouldn't want to ruin the book for you. Overall this was a great story and I will now be awaiting the release of Chandler's story since I have already read Chad's story. Check it out it was a great read!
