Book 1 of The Gamble Brothers Series

Madison Daniels has worshiped 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 '70s honeymoon suite and survive a multitude of "accidents" as the family tries to prove their "spark" can be used for more than fighting. That is, if they don't strangle each other first...


Steamy Romance Sweet

Tempting the Best Man by Jennifer Armentrout is the first book in the Gamble Brothers series, and centers around Madison and Chase, who grew up together. Chase is her brothers best friend. She's been in love with him since she noticed boys. After an encounter that leaves her heartbroken in college, Maddie and Chase avoid each other ... until her brothers wedding that is. The best man is tempted by the beautiful and intelligent Maid of Honor in this short, sweet, and sexy read.

Tempting the Best Man is cute. Honestly though, it's about as "tropey" as they come. I mean, after reading Jennifer's other works, I've been ruined for regular, run of the mill romance. haha. So cute is the word I come up with. It's your classic little sister loves brothers best friend, best friend doesn't think he is good enough for girl romance. It's predictable, but enjoyable. Sex is good if you are into a steamy read (which, YES!)

One of the things that made me just like this book, not love, is the lukewarm feelings I had towards Chase and Maddie. I liked them. I wanted them together. There just wasn't any intensity to it. Not what I am used to from Jennifer Armentrout's other couples, that is for sure.

Would I read this again? No. It wasn't bad by any means. Its a quick little spicy romance. Its just not on par with her other work, which are some the best books I have read. Will I continue with the series ... of course. It's Jennifer! <3
