★ SYNOPSIS ★
Never trust tequila on your birthday. She loved him. She’d always loved him. And it took just one tipsy birthday kiss for him to shatter her heart. But veterinarian Chloe Tremont doesn’t wrangle studs for a living only to let brooding hunk of a horse trainer Gray Kyleson to get the best of her. She’s got a plan, and Gray doesn’t stand a chance. Never let temptation make you weak. That birthday kiss should never have happened, and no one knows it more than Gray. He became a foster brother to Chloe when her family took him in after no one else would have him. He won’t do anything to betray their trust-especially when it comes to their daughter. But when a series of attacks on his horses force him seek help from the one woman who’s gotten under his skin-and into his heart-Gray worries that his tight control is slipping. And Chloe’s right there to take the reins.

★ MY REVIEW ★
Temptation & Tequila is the second book in the Tremont Sister series by new-to-me author Elizabeth Bemis. It is a full length novel with no cliff hanger and is written from an alternating first person point of view between the main characters. Last but not least, it does have an HEA and can be read as a standalone.
This is definitely a friends to lovers romance book but with a twist. It’s romance, for sure, however you get a lot of intrigue and mystery in it. You also have some pretty neat plot twists. I loved that it hit more than one thing. The author’s writing itself is extremely well done. Typically, I can pick apart plots and I tend to guess exactly what is going to happen, but I didn’t with this book. That made it an awesome surprise.
You get a great sense of background with the main characters and even the co-stars to an extent. They are fully developed and you really get a sense of them and the relationships they have.
There was a part where I feel like I missed something, mainly because you don’t read about what leads to this book between the main characters. I didn’t understand the books title but you do get a flashback, and you have it explained. I suspect you might read about it in the first book in the series, however it’s done well enough that you don’t need to read that book. You won’t miss anything if you don’t.
Overall, I loved this book. I loved it for the plot and the writing, the fact that it’s not just a friends to lovers book but also has more to it than that. I would most definitely recommend it, it gets four very happy stars from me.
