Title: Temper For You (For You #3)
Author: Genna Rulon
Source: Received from author in exchange for an honest review
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.
Temper for You is the third book in the For You series by Genna Rulon. It can be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading the other books in the series first so you can get the full effect. The main characters in the first 2 books appear often in this book. It was really nice seeing everyone together again. This book features two characters we have met prior – Meg and Wes.
With having no family to speak of, Meg has sort of been adopted by her friends (who were featured in the first two books). Meg is very secretive and refuses to tell anyone, even her best friends, about her past. She thinks she is protecting everybody. Meg has had a horrible past with crazy circumstances. The plot in this book is very original – to me anyway. I haven't read any books on this subject (but I'm not going to spoil it). I'll just say that she is on the run, and her life is in danger.
Of course, my favorite part is the romance since I'm such a romance junkie. Wes is a character that doesn't seem likable. Meg was interested in him at one time, but decided that he is a jerk. When he moves in next door though, she has trouble resisting. She's not looking for a relationship, and she knows that Wes isn't relationship material. With a little coaxing from her friends, because hey – she really needs to get laid, she agrees on a no-strings sexual relationship.
Part of this book is told from Wes' point of view. He's not such a bad guy, he just lets people believe that he is. Wes is a defense attorney, so he has a bad rep since he helps the bad guys. He has his reasons for going into that line of work though. Wes will tell you that he is a jerk and only interested in sex, so he surprises himself when he starts having feelings for Meg. It was nice to see him play the role of “boyfriend” - a role he never thought he'd play.
All of the books in this series so far deal with important topics, along with the romance... and I like that. There is a deepness about these books that just pulls you in. I'm rating this book 4 stars instead of 5 though, for a couple of reasons. First, I thought it was slow moving and the descriptions were a little wordy. Second, the author tended to use a lot of big words and phrases during Meg's point of view, especially during Meg's inner monologues. I felt like that was unneeded and it didn't feel natural to me. Overall though, I really enjoyed this book. If you like New Adult books with steamy romance, then I definitely recommend this series. I'm really looking forward to the next book in this series, and I'm really excited to learn that there is another series coming out that centers around Wes' friend Ry and his family.
