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...

The Review: Tempting the Best Man is the first book in the Gamble Brothers series by J.Lynn and it definitely started out with a bang! 

Madison Daniel’s has always been in love with her brother’s best friend since they were kids. And even though Chase Gamble has never shown any interest in her other than just friends – except for that one night four years ago, Madison still can’t help love him. But when they’re forced together at Madison’s brother’s wedding, they finally give into temptation once more. 

This is such a fab read I wish it was longer. By the time I’d read Tempting the Best Man I was seriously left wanting more. More pages, more Madison and Chase and definitely more adult stories by J. Lynn. 

I really enjoyed the plot of the story. I loved that the whole story takes place in a vineyard where all the family is staying too. It definitely made this story fun to read and I loved being able to get to know all the family all at once. Madison and Chase’s story while not completely unique – it’s a story I’ve read a few times before but J.Lynn adds her own spin to it and well it’s J.Lynn, you all know how much I love her work.

Madison and Chase were such great characters to get to know – they’re relationship is steamy and hot and I’m surprised they ever agreed on anything because they were both so damn stubborn. The banter back and forth was highly entertaining. I had quite a few laughs while reading this book and, the rest of the Gamble brothers….hello boys! Yes, I’m seriously looking forward to getting to know them better! 

In all, another fabulous read by one of my favourite authors and I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for the rest in the series.

Thank you to Hodder & Stoughton for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
