Tempting the Best Man (A Gamble Brothers Novel Book 1)
Madison Daniels has worshiped 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 ’70s 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…

Reviews Tempting the Best Man (A Gamble Brothers Novel Book 1)
This book is a short, kind of fun, often frustrating, ever so slightly steamy (but in a very tame kind of way) read about childhood friends with unrequited feelings for each other who end up as best man/maid of honor at a wedding and are forced to share a cabin for the weekend forcing their feelings into the open.
I didn’t really connect with the characters. I found the story very rushed, Chase and Maddie weren’t very functional either as individuals or as a couple and I found their behavior quite predictable. There were no heart racing or emotional moments for me in this book. They both made a lot of stupid mistakes which I have very little patience for. But if you like ‘hate-to-love-each-other’ kind of relationships, then you might like it.
It had me smiling in the beginning and a little at the end but I found Chase and Maddie’s behavior in the middle quite frustrating. Chase has serious ‘I’m not good enough for her’ issues, a bit of a man-whoring past, but desperately wants to not screw up with her. Maddie has wanted him since she was a kid but always felt like he didn’t see her in any way other than a kid sister. This leads to a lot of miss – communication but, of course, an eventual HEA. Its a quick read – it took me about 2 hours total from start to finish.
