Temper For You
For You Series, book #3
By Genna Rulon
~ Synopsis ~
“Life is messy. Love is messier.” -Catch and Release
Meg Adeio has led a life of isolation—not by choice, by necessity—until one act of heroism forces her out of seclusion. Despite a past shrouded in mystery, Meg is “adopted” by an eclectic group of friends that become the family she never had. Life was good for the first time in…ever.
Or it was until Westly Black reappeared on her doorstep. She knew he was the last man any woman should give her time to—only good for one thing—yet a temptation no woman could deny. Wes might make her life messy, but Meg’s eyes were wide open and she had it under control. At least she thought she did.
When past and present collide, loyalties are tested, forcing Meg to sacrifice her future to protect those she loves.
Temper For You is a gripping story of regret, deception, and redemption – filled with raw emotion, sarcastic wit, intrigue, and love’s propensity to forgive.
• Though Temper For You is a part of the For You Series, it can be read as a stand alone
• This story is appropriate for readers 18+
~ Excerpt ~
I may have slept, but I didn’t rest. My dreams were plagued by warm caramel eyes that promised endless hours of yet unknown satisfaction. Damn the man. He was the single most beautiful creature I had ever seen…devastating, that was the word for him. If the whole sleazebag-lawyer thing didn’t work out, there’s no doubt Calvin Klein or Armani would be knocking down his door. His defined bone structure with high cheek bones, prominent jaw, and strong brow were every woman’s fantasy. And his lips…I wanted to bite those full, luscious lips. Add the chocolate brown hair that begged to be pulled while locked in an undulating embrace…irresistible!
What was wrong with me? I knew he was a conscienceless miscreant. Shouldn’t that knowledge work as a sedative to my recently awakened—and usually dormant—sex drive? But no, my otherwise mute inner hussy jumped up and down, shouting like a drunken sorority girl after losing her third game of flip-cups, every time he entered a room.
It had taken months after I’d learned who he was and what he had done to force him from my mind. I lied to my friends, pretending to dismiss him without a second thought, but I couldn’t lie to myself—I still craved him in an unfamiliar and overwhelming fashion.
And now he was going to live next door.
We didn’t even have a few feet of lawn separating us…no, he was a narrow flower bed away. I could only wonder what I had done to piss off the bitch known as karma to justify this turn of events.
That’s a lie.
I knew what I had done, and I deserved every torturous moment.
Lying alone in my bed last night, I could practically feel his presence seeping through the sheetrock, tormenting me. As my hand slid down my stomach in response, I chided myself before firmly tucking both hands beneath my pillow to ward off any temptation. Subsequently, I spent the next hour debating the merits of moving out before vowing not to let him run me off.
He. Would. Not. Win.
Yep, a double dose of chocolate was necessary this morning.
~ Review by Courtney ~
Temper For You is the third book in the For You Series. The readers got a quick glimpse of Meg and Westly in the previous book, but this is their story. In order to truly appreciate all of the characters, I suggest reading the series from the start. The characters are all so eclectic and have this great chemistry with their wit and banter that reading the books from the start really connects the readers with the characters and their stories.
The writing in this story is incredible, and I knew it would be. Ms. Rulon is so thorough with her storytelling that the reader doesn’t miss anything. While all of the books, Temper For You included, carry some heavy and emotional themes, she manages to insert comic relief through the characters internal thoughts and banter back and forth at just the right moments.
I will say, this was my favorite of the series. I looooved Westly, even more then Hunter and Griffin. Meg’s story was so creatively done. It was unexpected and so different from the ‘norm’ of background stories with characters. I was a bit disappointed that the ending did somewhat cut off, it’s not a cliffhanger, but I did want to see a little more of Wes and Meg in the end. However, I was relieved to read the Ms. Rulon will be adding another installment to the series. I hope to see a lot more of Wes and Meg, along with the other characters in that installment. I gave Temper For You 5 out of 5 books.
