Et si le hasard faisait bien les choses ?
J’ai toujours été folle amoureuse de Chase, le meilleur ami de mon frère. Lui et moi, on formerait un duo d’enfer s’il ne jouait pas les « serial-lovers » et si on ne passait pas notre temps à s’engueuler pour un oui ou pour un non.
C’est officiel, mon frère se marie. Pour de vrai. Manque de bol, il a choisi Chase pour témoin. Cerise

Apr 24, 2012 rated it it was amazing  ·  (Review from the author)  ·  review of another edition
I like this author. Hardy har har... =)
'Tempting the Best Man' was a cute, heart-warming, sexy story. At under 200 pages, and around 4 hrs. of audio, this was a quick and entertaining "book". It was funny and endearing enough to hold my attention, while not being emotional enough to consume my thoughts. This is a great "light" read if you're recovering from a book hangover.

Madison has always loved her older brother's best friend, Chase. Everyone knows it, except for him. Guys can be clueless like that. With the exception of the event

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.

First of all, once again I was still out of town when I checked on GR and saw a friend had read this book. I had no idea what this book was about or who was the author or anything. I go on and read the synop
Wow I am so in the minority right now it's not even funny.

Let me start by saying that I enjoy Jennifer's writing style especially in Obsidian and I also love a good steamy romance.

But unfortunately with this I felt like I'd read it all before & better.

I know this was a novella but I've read novella's before & been able to connect with the characters for eg Connected.

I was so tired of hearing how humiliated & rejected the h (I can't remember her name, it's like i wiped it from my memo

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 out that she was writing a story for Entangled Publishings' Indulgence line, i almost died... most probably from the anticipation. I love the new Indulgence line and couple that with Ms Armentrout (who han ...more

I'm working my way through sickness right now, so I'll probably lazy review this one. Either way, I'll be back to my rambling and sad attempts at humor in my reviews tomorrow.

In case you didn't know, this author is the same person as Jennifer L. Armentrout. While I have had certain "ethical" issues with one of Armentrout's series in the past, I can honestly say that I've never had any complaints about her writing. Usually, her stuff is pretty entertaining. She rocks it out in the YAPNR departme

Chase Gamble and Maddie Daniels have been friends forever. Chase is the best friend of Maddie's brother, Mitch, and the three of them played and hung out even before they started elementary school. Here's the thing though, Maddie has had it bad for Chase ever since she started being interested in boys. Chase, needing to escape family drama was like a fixture at the Daniels' house. He's always been protective of Maddie, held her up on a pedestal. Until one night when they let their feeli

Cute unrequited love story, but with an eye-rolling ending.

Tempting The Best Man was a lite, cute sexy short story about unrequited love. Predictable? Yes. Original? Heck no. A fun read? For a light beach read, absolutely.

Madison (Maddie) has had a crush on Chase since she was a little girl. Chase is her brother Mitch's best friend, and now his best man in his upcoming wedding. He believes Maddie is too good for him, and off limits since she's the sister of his best friends. But things heat up

SUMMARY (50 words or less)

If you are looking for something sassy and short, this novella is for you. There is a promise, a tease, frustration, the big bang, loss, misunderstanding, and a happily ever after in this short story. Only around a little more than a hundred pages, but

I liked this one for a shorter read.
It wasn't overcomplicated with a too quick ending.
It was an even pace with some angst and a HEA.

Recommends it for: All romance and Armentrout fans!!!!
My, oh my, oh my...our miss J. Lynn's sinful little secret is out of the bag, and it is PERFECTION!! I have always been a huge fan of Jennifer's amazing writing, and her steamy scenes in the Lux and Covenant series never disappoint, but clearly her talents in the romance genre have gone underestimated!! I was expecting this to be good, but I wasn't expecting to be completely blown away with an unforgettable story. Whew, my heart is still racing and I finished this last night!!!!

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 had to postpone my lunch date with my hubs just so I can finish it. **SIGH** I love Chase & Maddie's story. Their chemistry is off the charts. Bravo. Bravo. You just rock! Can't wait to see what you

This was a really fun and quick read. It was cute, sexy, and entertaining. I did enjoy it quite a bit but I didn’t invest myself into it as it was so short and there was barely any time to get to know the characters. It did hold my attention but just not get me all the way emotionally.

I like Madison and Chase. Chase and his brothers (The Gamble Brothers) definitely have some childhood issues that they all need to work on. But seeing Chase in this book fighting against his issues for Madison was

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 qui

★★★☆ (This is a review of the audiobook.) I enjoyed Kaleo Griffith’s narration of this book. Nevertheless, he reads slows, and I couldn’t speed up the rate on Hoopla. That drove me a bit nuts. However, he has a nice voice, his pacing is good as is his enunciation. I liked that I could hear the amusement in his voice, when it was appropriate.

Hmmmm. I'm not quite sure why I picked this one. I wanted something light, but snarky, and with a “bad boy,” thus fulfilli
Hawt Dame!!!!

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 full we desperate need. But that's okay, I can totally live with that since the Covenant series and the Lux series is incredible so much more.

But! With this book, this yummy little book, we get the whol

3.5-4-ish stars

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 communication and that he was always the one to say 'We need to talk.' It was nice. I don't know, though, I felt like there was something missing, but I can't really put my finger on it. Maybe it was the ending

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 hours and stayed up until midnight to finish it. And I had so much fun reading this book. I laughed out loud, I fell in love with the characters, and I flailed around like a crazy person.

Entangled - Brazen books prove to me time and time again, with every book & series I read, just how talented their authors are.

J.Lynn is no exception, and after reading Tempting the Best Man the Gamble Brothers - Chase, Chandler & Chad, are looking to have some "Mighty Fine" potential!

Chase (the Best Man) and Maddie(the Groom's Sister), have been skirting around each other for years, so when you add a hotel room mix-up and a r

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

When I heard about this book only this morning I instantly needed to download it for my Kindle and read it. For those of you who don't know J. Lynn is a pseudonym for Jennifer L Armentrout. Now you see why I had to read it? Tempting the Best Man is an adult contemporary romance that completely and utterly blew me away.

Their easy friendship was destroyed the night they made out and then Chase walked away without a backward glance and now, on the rare occasions when Madison isn't able to avoid him, they find themselves constantly bickering.

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 sie in einer verhängnisvollen Nacht vor vielen Jahren die Grenze zwischen Freundschaft und Sex überschritten haben.

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 brother.

Years go by and Mitch is getting married. Maddie had ended up being maid of honor and of all people to have to stand up at the wedding with, it was Chase who was the best man. Maddie didn't know how s

Meine Gedanken zum Buch:
Ich weiß nicht, was das war, aber es war auf alle Fälle nix oder nicht viel. Zumindest dann, wenn man Armentrout kennt und weiß, was sie schreiben kann. Ich kann mir diesen Aussetzer nur damit erklären, dass es im Original 2012 erschienen und somit fast fünf Jahre alt ist und damit zu ihren Erstlingen gehört. Was zeigt, jeder fängt mal klein an.

Aber nun zu diesem Buch. Es hätte mir unglaublich gut gefallen können, immerhin schreibt

All the rumors you heard about her state aren’t true.

Well, mostly. When she's not hard at work writing, she spends her time, reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write.
