Temper For You Review and Excerpt

Temper For You
For You Series, book #3
By Genna Rulon


"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+

Globug's Review

I'm so happy to get Meg's story. After taking a bullet to save Sam she finds herself surrounded by four of the best friends she never believed she could have. No one knows what Meg's life has been like. She has gone as far to confess to Sam and Everleigh that her knowledge of and experience with sex is very limitied and the magic of the orgasm remains undiscovered. One of my favorite things about the first two books is the hysterical and unfiltered banter between the girls and Rulon brings it again in Temper For You. Sam is on a mission to get Meg laid by a man that can bring full enlightenment of the big "O".

Westly Black blew his chance at being that man for Meg. He was such an ass in the last book as the lawyer defending Sam's attacker. Before Meg knew who he was they had connected at the coffee shop where Meg works. It takes a little convincing but Sam works her match making skills to get Meg and Westly together. After all, neither of them are looking for commitment. Strictly a hit and quit it situation. Westly's confident in his bedroom skills and more than willing to share what he can do with Meg.

Bit by bit Meg opens up to Westly. The more she shares the stronger his desire to know everything about her becomes. Meg also learns that the asshole persona Westly has perfected isn't at all who he really is. Now again as in the first two books the author includes an element of mystery/suspense. Meg is obviously trying to hide her past and no one has any clue how big her secret is. The past now has come back to claim her but GriffLo, HuntLeigh, and Westly aren't willing to let her go. Meg isn't willing to risk the safety of the only family she's ever had. For the first time in her life she feels loved and wanted. Westly somehow slipped into her heart and became her home. The last thing Westly ever expected was the all consuming love he now has for Meg and is desperate not to lose.

Facing her past becomes Meg's only option if she wants to save her future. Meg's secret past was not at all what I was expecting. I can't imagine the research the author had to do to make the story so believable. Meg's history is shocking. The fact that she has come so far in her education and surviving on her own while overcoming such a brutal childhood makes her one of my favorite book heroines. Westly can't stand by waiting for someone else to rescue Meg when her life is on the line and I love that he was her hero in the end. Temper For You was another fantastic read from Rulon.


“There aren’t many things I’m truly exceptional at.  I’ll never be husband material.  I’m a shit friend most of the time.  I believe the ends usually justify the means.  My moral fiber is questionable, at best.  I will never be the person you call when you’re in a bind or need a shoulder to lean on.  I don’t express my feelings, mostly because I don’t have any that aren’t shallow.  I don’t like animals as a general rule, and children—no, just no,” I paused, asking myself what the hell I was saying as the same question echoed in her eyes.  Too late now—in for a penny, in for a pound.  “The only steadfast rule I have is I do not sleep with someone else’s woman—ever.  Other than that one display of principles, I have few redeeming qualities.  There are two areas I excel, the law and sex—and when I say I excel, I mean I’m a fucking god.  You will forget your own name because all you’ll be able to do is scream mine…over and over again.  You want no-strings, mind-blowing sex?  There is no one better qualified.”
