Tempting the Best Man by J. Lynn

Tempting the Best Man by J. Lynn.
Audience/Genre : Adult/Contemporary Romance.
Publication : April 23rd 2012 by Entangled Publishing : Indulgence.
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…

Julie James, Move Over! I've found hotter romance than yours!

As someone who has actually had a crush on my older brother's (coincidentally, of 3 years) best friend since I was 11 until, I don't know, 19? I felt like Tempting the Best Man was made for me. The fact that it's written by one of my favorite authors was enough to guarantee its awesomeness but the plot was an added bonus! Ha, if only real life were like that!

I was apprehensive about the third POV at first as I didn't see that coming but Jen's clearly proved that she can pull it off as this book was just as addictive as the rest of her novels. The writing, as I expected, was funny and relatable. I loved the frequent, witty banter between Maddie and Chase, especially Chase's flirting. I had some seriously toe-curling, heart-racing moments while reading this novel!

This book is pure hotness, no way around it. J. Lynn's done an amazing job with the characters as usual and I was drooling all over my Kindle right from when Chase said :

"Of course," he drawled lazily. "I had to come see what little Maddie Daniels was b***ing." (He's talking about her car tire btw.)

Who doesn't love a cocky, arrogant, insanely sexy jerk with a sense of humor?
I knew Jennifer's talented at character development and creating a sizzling chemistry but I so didn't expect this intensity from a contemporary romance novel.

My favorite parts in the book (other than the flirting and all the sex, of course) were Chase and Maddie's little trips down the memory lane, they were incredibly sweet and made me smile and sigh all at once. It contributed to how the romance started and developed. There's no doubt that J.Lynn, aka Jennifer, is the queen of lovable and crush-worthy characters, she has done it with all her books!

There were times when I wanted Maddie to be more...assertive but I guess Chase was her Achilles' Heel. It was understandable and made me feel bad for her (though I would've preferred to be rooting for her). I'm curious about the other Gamble boys, especially Chad, but I guess we'll know his story soon enough.

Tempting the Best Man was funny, passionate, sweet and freakin' hot at all the right times and makes a perfect, light and happy feel-good read! I just hope next time Jen writes about a rock/movie star, I've a thing for stories about them. *hint hint*
