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 for more than fighting. That is, if they don’t strangle each other first…
*WARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS ADULT CONTENT* YOU'RE BEING WARNED.
GOD DAMN FUCKING SHIT. There I said it. I just read my first adult book and I didn't even know it. Okay, by the title of the book I should have guessed it. But let's not talk about my roots please, I'd rather discuss this book.
Jennifer L. Armentrout... You are the bomb... I'm not ashamed to say that i shadowed Amazon, till this book went live! Some of you may be confused as to why I'm talking about Ms Armentrout when this book is written by J. Lynn... well that's Jennifer's pen name for her adult books! When I found ou... ...more

Dear Ms. Armentrout,
You are a genius. I just had to get that out first. Mother Lord do you have mad skills or what!? I absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. I really hope you continue to write more adult contemporary books because this was brilliant. I could not put it down, I... ...more
Have you read Jennifer's YA books? Well if you have then you already know what this women can do with with chemistry, angst and temptation. But since those books are for YA, the more heated moments would always fade to black, giving us a taste but never quite getting the entire mouth... ...more
It was really fun and cute and nice. I liked it, especially the first 80%, but I felt like the ending was really rushed and abrupt, and I wasn't satisfied by it at all. So minus points for that.
I really liked both Chase and Madison, and I liked that Chase was very open to communi... ...more
I'm such a fan of Jennifer L. Armentrout, especially when she's writing as J. Lynn. I loved Wait for You so much and I've been meaning to read her other books for quite some time. I finally go around to it and I'm so glad that I did.
Tempting the Best Man is such a fun read. I read it in like 5 h... ...more

Another fantastic friends to lovers story! It was great. It was short too, not so great.
Of course it being written by J. Lynn, aka Jennifer L. Armentrout, is a major bonus! She can't do wrong I tell ya.

"You... you are my world. You've always been my world, ever since I can remember."

Schon immer ist Madison Daniels in den besten Freund ihres großen Bruders verliebt. Alle denken, dass sie und Chase Gamble das perfekte Paar seien, doch Madison weiß es besser: Erstens sind Beziehungen ein rotes Tuch für Chase und zweitens fliegen zwischen ihnen nur noch die Fetzen, seit... ...more
Ever since she was a little girl, Maddie had always had a huge crush on Chase. Mitch (Maddie's brother) had been best friends with Chase forever. Chase never felt like he would be good enough for Maddie and that she would be "off limits" being that he was best friends with her older broth... ...more
2/7 - My only complaint with this 'book' is that it's way too short. I don't understand why Armentrout didn't make the effort to write a full length novel for this story. I thought the plot was fantastic and had the potential to be a 300+ page book, instead of the novella length that it was. I sp... ...more
Before:I 'HAVE' to read this apparently ;) LOl
Hope it's as good as it sounds! *fingers crossed*
After: Absaloutely flabbergastingly brilliant, yes isn't everything Jennifer writes amazing?

How awesome is that end... ...more

Hmmmm....okay Chase was kind of a jerk leading Madison on who I really liked she was sweet, honest, outgoing, and fun. Chase was constantly sending her mixed signals until he finally took his head out of his a... ...more
This book right here is romance at its best. You know when you read a spicy book there are always “those” words that just make you cringe?? You know the ones that for some reason every romance writer thinks we women love to read but in reality just make us cringe and giggle thinking how in the ha... ...more
Definitivamente, J. Lynn (Jennifer L. Armentrout) se ha convertido en una de mis autoras favoritas. Creo que debe necesitarse un gran talento para escribir también tanto el género YA y romance adulto contemporáneo. ¡Tempting the Best Man es genial! Es de esos libros que no puedes dejar de leer ha... ...more
I found this while browsing Amazon and thought it sounded interesting. I didn’t decide to read this until I looked the author up on goodreads and found out that J. Lynn is the same person as Jennifer L. Armentrout…author of one of my favorite books…Obsidian! Once I saw that, there was no way I co... ...more
