Temper For You by Genna Rulon Blog Tour -#bookreview & #excerpt


Temper For You

For You Series, book #3
By Genna Rulon


"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+

     Son of a bitch!     
     I marched back to my house, dodging furniture and movers along the way, not stopping until I reached my home office where my cell phone and solitude were located.
     Son. Of. A. Bitch!
I swore if I ever saw her again I would either:  a) pretend I didn’t know her, or b) coax her into my bed.  Nothing in either plan dictated cursing at her; it was an inexcusable fumble.  Dammit!  The only good news was that my father wasn’t alive to hear me confess my crimes.  He would have ripped me a new one for talking to a lady that way, even if the description had been accurate—which unfortunately, it was not.  Therefore, I couldn’t even comfort myself with the knowledge that I simply verbalized the truth because Meg was a lot of things, but she was definitely not a bitch.
Meg…when she opened the door, it knocked the wind out of me.  I’d convinced myself—after she unceremoniously kicked me to the curb in the middle of the coffee shop—that my memories were idealized after nine months fantasizing about her.  Nope.  She was even more stunning than I remembered, and every part of me responded to the sight of her.  My brain stalled, deprived of oxygen, as all of the blood in my body detoured southward.  And while some parts appeared to be stupefied into complete stillness—such as my mouth, which seemed unable to form words—another part of me was rising to the occasion and begging for attention.  Yes, Little West was pointing due north.

My Temper For You Review ...

It has felt like forever until we finally get to find out Meg's story and I am ecstatic that Westly Black is her man to be. *Squee*  I absolutely adore this series!!! It has such a great balance of humor, angst, suspense and love. 

Meg and Westly are attracted to one another but reality is pushing them apart until fate steps in and moves him next door.  What better way to find the elusive 'O' then with the sexy neighbor who only wants a no strings attached relationship.  

As Meg and Westly give into their sexual attraction unavoidable emotions start to get involved but come to a road block with Meg's secrets and Westly's ignorance when it comes to relationships.
Meg has a story and as the book goes on I have to admit there were times I wanted to shake her and tell her spill the beans and move on.  It took quite awhile for her truth to come to the forefront and when it did ...

As the shock wore off on the truth, that element of the story started to grow on me which took a bit but thank god for Westly Black.  If it wasn't for the beauty and awesomeness of Wes I would have lost my patience with Meg because she was trying me with her reluctance to be honest to everyone and open up.

Westly has is own baggage and low self value but one thing he is good at is, being a great lover and he did not disappoint but this relationship thing is new to him so it was quite a shock when his heartless heart came to life. 

With the help of Wes and the gang, Meg is able to move forward or so we think but in truth the key in her recovery is Thia and her genius unconventional ways that sets everything in motion to be as it should be.  Meg and Wes have their own journey's to be able to love one another completely and freely.  But this was not an easy for journey especially for Meg as she is forced to deal with her past and tragic aspects of her present reality. 

Cultural Conditioning is a difficult barrier for many to break through because it is hard to come to terms of what is your personal beliefs and what is the beliefs of others that are put onto you.  For Meg her past has conditioned her to believe a certain way that she can't see past what her family has made her feel or see.  Thankfully for love, friendship and family it is the key for Meg to move forward and be free of her past and be all that she can be.

There are so many aspects that I loved in this book, mainly Westly and Thia .  The story is made so much more with Huntleigh and Grifflo.  Individually the characters are good but together they are great.  I did love this story even though at times I wanted to throttle Meg and her secrets.  Genna Rulon has yet again delivered a great book.  I can't not wait to read more from this series and her spin off series.
