Tempting the Best Man (Gamble Brothers)

Tempting the Best Man - J. Lynn, Jennifer L. Armentrout 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 [a:Jennifer L. Armentrout|4476934|Jennifer L. Armentrout|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1290636579p2/4476934.jpg]. 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 department. So I figured I'd give one of her adult contemps a whirl. After all, Armentrout excels at sexual tension. I was surprised to find out that her adult contemp wasn't all that impressive. Although, I can't really say anything overly negative about Tempting the Best Man. It's not that there was anything bad or unreadable about the book. It's just that everything about this book was standard - from the childhood romance, to the romance terminology which felt like it was lifted from the romance writing handbook, to the setting (whaddya know, they just so happen to be sharing a cabin at a wedding), to the "you're too good for me," spiel, to the "conflict which wasn't really much of a conflict." In short, this book was :Honestly, I think I'd seen this same story done better recently, in [b:Risking It All|15723852|Risking It All|Jennifer Schmidt|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1340739196s/15723852.jpg|21398957]. That one was only a 3 star read for me, but at least I felt more enthusiastic about parts of it. Chances are, I will still probably read the next Gamble Brothers book. I'd heard that it was better than this one and I know this author can write well when she wants to. Maybe I just found a random book of hers which didn't interest me.
