Temper For You by Genna Rulon- Review!!!



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+






My Review:

Temper for You (For You, #3)Temper for You by Genna Rulon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Meg has a rough past. She has lived under the radar for 7 years, not letting anyone get too close or letting herself get too attached to anyone. She has struggled to put herself through an advanced education while working to dean enough to cover her meager bills. Meg has already gotten closer to her friends Everleigh, Sam, Hunter, and Griffen than she intended, but it feels good to have family. She wouldn't mind a no-strings attached situation to help relieve her physical needs, but she can't risk a real relationship. Westley Black has no desire for anything other than casual sexual encounters. He works hard, and is honest about who he is and what he wants. Meg and West had a very hot date months ago, but circumstances prevented another date from occurring. West is now living next door to Meg and this time around they both realize that not giving in to their physical chemistry is impossible.

Even though we know and care about Meg from Only for You and Pieces for You, we don't really know her. As it turns out no one does because she keeps her secrets locked up tight. We also know Wes a little bit from Pieces for You, but mostly in a bad light due to his legal involvement in Sam's case. I know that it didn't take long for me to change my mind bout Wes, and I was a pretty solid fan of his hot self pretty quickly. It was easy to care about Meg, but it was hard to experience her feeling so alone when there were so many people who obviously cared a lot about her. It is tough at times to want to know about Meg's past so badly but not being able to understand. It is interesting as the reader to have to go through what Meg's friends and loved ones do as none of us really know the secrets that Meg's past holds. It was wonderful to reconnect with my favorites from the previous books in the series. It was also great to get to see Thea in action once again. There were a couple times towards the end when Wes's speech got a bit hyperbolic, but all things considered, it wasn't too big of a deal. I am thrilled that there will be another book in this series, and others in a related series. I really like this author and would highly recommend that people back up and start with Only for You. I won't need to recommend that people continue with the series, because I think that will happen automatically.

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.
