I wanted Tristan and Lemon's story from the moment we met them both in Love So Hot. I knew there had to be something behind all their bickering and couldn't wait to get the entire story. Love So Tempting was completely worth the wait!
Let me just say I wanted Tristan and Lemon as a couple from the first time I saw them together. I just knew there was more to the story and I adored watching them figure out how to have a relationship. I think Lemon is my favorite of the McCoy sisters. She is such an independent person, even though she still lives in her family home. I love that she has her own nail salon business and makes no excuses for being a beauty queen. Hello, we are in the South, and we love our beauty queens. Lemon is the most laid back person on the face of the planet except when it comes to Tristan Lawson.
I think part of the reason I adored Tristan from the beginning is the fact that the big bad Marine became a librarian. I have so much love for intelligent men and add one who loves books and loves to read books to children, and I'm sold. Tristan was totally that charming man with everyone except Lemon. They love to antagonize one another and yet I could totally feel the underlying chemistry between them.
I'm pretty sure I might have cheered when they initially hooked up and absolutely loved finding out about their past as each remembered the letters they shared while Tristan was deployed. I even loved that Lemon got pregnant and forced Tristan to step up and admit his feelings for Lemon and for Lemon to admit her feelings for Tristan. I honestly hated that someone had told them lies in the past to keep them apart, and really can't say I'm over my anger at the character yet.
I loved that Tristan and Lemon got a second chance to get their happily ever after right. I had all the good feels for them as a couple and really felt like they were a stronger couple in the end. Love So Tempting is a beautiful second chance romance filled with passion, laughter, and even a few tears (both happy and sad).
