ISHO Summary“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+

isho-my-opinion2I received an ARC of Temper For You from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.  Seeing as I loved the first two books in this series I jumped at the opportunity.

We met both Wes and Meg in Pieces For You, the second book of the For You series. Meg was easy to like but Wes…well, it took a little longer to like him.  But make no mistake, I did like Wes A LOT!

Wes knows he’s just looking for a hook up and nothing more than that.  He states very clearly that he’s not a relationship kind of guy.  He thinks of Meg as the one that got away.  He feels that once he has her, then he can carry on and not think about her anymore. Yeah…right!

Meg is running from a secret, dark and dangerous past and is very afraid of putting her friends (which are more like family) in danger.  When Wes becomes her new neighbour, she has difficulty NOT thinking about him.  She too figures she can get him out of her system and then move on.  Um…not so much.

Unfortunately, her past is catching up to her and she needs to let her friends know what her secret is before any of them get hurt. Let me just say that I did not expect her secret to be what it was.

I loved seeing all the characters from the previous books: Ev, Hunter, Sam and Griffin.  Ev and Sam are great comic relief.  We also meet a couple of new characters, which I’m looking forward to reading more about.

One other thing I really enjoyed was the quotes at the top of each chapter.  I loved them!!!

I gave Temper For You five yummy cups of steamy latte, served up with “Lindt Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt”. DELICIOUS!!!!

His body is beyond perfection.  And Wes, Jr…that not-so-little man should have odes and sonnets in his honor – or at least some dirty limericks.  Let’s just say he is exceedingly blessed.  Ginormongous!

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.  Only For You is book one in the For You series and was published on September 24, 2013.

“In its purest form love is self-sacrificing, eternal, selfless, enduring, truthful, forgiving and indulgent. It also feels an awful lot like a kick to the stomach when you try to fight it!” 

All Everleigh Carsen wanted to do was complete her final semester at Hensley University and begin the life she carefully planned. 

When a wave of violent crime seizes campus, Everleigh is persuaded to attend a school sponsored self-defense seminar by her best friend, where she meets volunteer instructor, Hunter Charles. After Everleigh’s biting sarcasm induces Hunter to eject her from class, a tempestuous relationship is born. 

Everleigh is determined to forget the striking man, but fate—that fickle shrew—continuously intervenes. Unable to escape him, she declares Hunter an enemy combatant. The only complication…Hunter is resolutely pursuing vindication…by any means necessary. Verbal warfare ensues, and despite Everleigh’s ingenious efforts, in Hunter, she has finally found her equal.

Only For You is a compelling tale of friendship, desire, and redemption—brimming with intelligent characters, witty dialogue, unexpected twists, profound sorrow, unfettered hope, and love’s unassailable perseverance.
