Random Review & Tour . . . Tristan by Karla Sorensen

Title: Tristan
Series: Bachelors of the Ridge
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 25, 2018
There's one thing you should know about Tristan Whitfield: he’s been in love with Anna for years. 
There are two problems with that: she has no idea, and she's married. Or at least, she was. 
Anna Callahan knows three things about her brother’s friend, Tristan: he's quiet, incredibly handsome, and has a smolder that could set the room on fire. 
For years, it wasn’t difficult for Anna to overlook all of that. But when Tristan is the solution to a work problem that could derail her career, he is anything but easy to ignore.
To Tristan, the fact that the object of his affection is suddenly single means he should tread lightly. Be the friend she needs until she’s ready for more and hope the risk pays off.
Because it'll add up to the one thing he wants: her.

My Review:

**4 stars**

Two things that I adored most about this novel:
- the amazing guy waiting in the wings, secretly in love with the girl, but respecting her unavailability
- the absolute slow burn and tease created by the chemistry between that guy and girl

This is my first novel from this author and although it is part of a series, I had no problem reading it and feeling like I was missing something form previous book. The author did a great job of making the characters like able and pulling me into their emotions. 

I liked that this wasn't a rushed relationship. I liked that they took their time and made their love into something beautiful that not many can achieve. I also hated that they didn't rush their relationship, LOL. I kept wanting more, NOW. 

All in all, it was an enjoyable read and I would recommend it to others.

**I received an ARC and reviewed voluntarily.**
"Tristan isn't just angsty or emotional. It's absolutely spellbinding. From the first word to the very last, I was hooked. An epic finale to one of my favorite romance series ever." - Bestselling Author Kandi Steiner
"I devoured this book in one sitting. Karla hit every emotion imaginable. I got mad, I laughed, I cried, my heart ached, and by the end, it was filled with joy. Tristan's story is the perfect ending to an incredible series." - Author Kathryn Andrews

Well, let’s see ... I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone's face, then I've done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I'll love you forever.
