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.

Genna Rulon worked her magic with this third installment of the series. Even though it's said you can read this one as a standalone, I wouldn't recommend doing so. The author keeps her previous characters as supporting characters and continues their story as the series progresses. I think you'll love the characters and be able to relate with them more if you've read their own stories too. This story followed Meg & Wes. I have to admit that this was probably my favorite plot of the series so far. Meg's life is far, far darker than we ever imagined. The author does a great job of keeping you guessing at what exactly IS Meg's history until well into the book. I liked that about this novel. Now Wes... I have to admit that I didn't like him for the longest time. I couldn't find the appeal with him until well into the novel. Normally, it's the guys that keep me reading when it comes to series about a guy & a girl... this time it was Meg who kept me reading. I was drawn to her. This book seemed to miss a little something as compared to the other two. I'm not quite sure what it was but it was a spark of sorts. Maybe it's because I wasn't a huge fan of Wes that held me back a bit. Overall, huge 4 stars for me. I'll continue to read anything this author puts out!
Meg has secrets. Lots and lots of secrets that she keeps buried so deep not a single person in her life knows about them. While she does have a handful of friends, she won't let herself get truly close to anyone. It's better that way. And she certainly doesn't want any kind of relationship with a guy, despite the fact that she is still chasing that ever elusive O. Defense attorney Westly is a jerk and he makes no apologies for it. He knows who he is and he owns it: different girls every week, sketchy clients and all. He has absolutely no desire for long term relationships, not after what happened with his parents. But he'd be lying if he said he wasn't dying for a taste of Meg. It seems that fate is on Westly's side when he discovers that she is his neighbor at his new condo. Maybe now he will finally get his one night and get Meg out of his system. But will one night be enough for both of them? And will Meg ever come clean about her past? Damn you Genna Rulon, your books always have me in tears! Having read the previous two books in this series (which is not required but I highly recommend) I knew Meg had a lot of secrets and I was anxious to finally learn more about her. That past that she revealed, however, floored me. I was just stunned and it broke my heart reading everything she had been through. I swear no one deserves a happily ever after more than This girl. Wes is an arrogant a$$ but also so damn sexy. And underneath that arrogance is a truly good man, though he rarely let's people see that part of him. I loved the two of them together and wanted to see them make it work, but neither one made it easy. Prepare yourself to laugh, curse and cry for this one, which is no less than I expected from Rulon.
Wow. Just W-O-W….I don’t even know where to begin. As I sit writing this I have come to the conclusion that the For You series is probably one of my favorite series and Genna Rulon has expertly weaved her way into my heart as one of my favorite authors! Temper For You, if you are familiar with the series is Meg’s story. If you are not familiar with the For You series, I urge you to get acquainted with these characters. You will adore them and cherish them just as I do. Although this can be read as a standalone I highly recommend reading the books in order. It just allows you to better connect with the characters and follow references from the past two novels. I don’t know that I can truly rank the books in any specific order as I feel Genna Rulon has undoubtedly stolen my heart every single time. I do believe I am a fan for life. She has an impressive ability to weave words in such a way that allows the reader to step into the book and experience every emotion with these characters. Her expert writing and flawless satire is incomparable to any author I’ve ever read. The closest comparison I can give is that her descriptive abilities are similar to that of Colleen Hoover and her humor close to that of Alice Clayton, however, she is truly unique when it comes to her sarcasm and no one in my opinion has come close to matching the quick wit of her characters. We meet Meg in Pieces For You and immediately we know she’s hiding things. We learn that she has endured some struggles, but her honesty remains questionable. In Temper For You we learn why. Her shrouded past has caused her great pains and she has managed to steer clear of love and friendship. That is until she meets Ev, Sam, Griffin and Hunter. They as Genna claims “adopt” her into the family, and although she adores them, her past still has a tight hold on her. She is sure that she will eventually lose them. She is waging an internal war and although she appears fine on the surface she won’t allow anyone close enough to break through those walls. She knows the dangers of allowing anyone to get too close. So she remains guarded, that is until Westly Black re-enters her life and here begins the struggle. There is an undeniable attraction between these two and their chemistry is off the charts causing a surge of emotions that will forever alter the two. When Meg’s past collides with her present her future seems nothing more than a bleak prospect. Will her newfound family and potential romance allow her to break free from the chains of her past or will she be forced to lose everyone and everything she’s come to know and love? Temper For You is told in dual perspectives. You will get to experience both Wes and Meg’s POV – which I absolutely loved. Wes is a man that on the surface appears to be nothing more than a pompous jerk, but as I read and learned more about his own story, I realized I might not have given him a fair chance. I, like Meg, had not allowed myself to look beyond whom we met in Pieces For You. When I was able to look past the little I knew of Wes I was enamored by this man and his many layers. My only advice to the reader is that you go into this judgment free…give him a chance as I did, you won’t be disappointed. I was so deeply enthralled by this book that I forewent sleep just to finish it. Yes, it is that good!!! I’m not going to lie, there were moments where I wanted to grab Meg and shake her, but most of the book I spent curious and let’s just say her story is quite unlike anything you’d expect. It is quite a compelling read and while each of the characters in this series has experienced their share of struggles and hurdles, Meg’s story touched me in a different way. I felt for her and wanted her to have a happy ending despite the obstacles. I wanted to know more about her past and hoped she’d be able to find a future she deserved, but most of all I wanted her to realize her potential and worth. This story is magnetic. It draws you in and tugs at your heartstrings. You will hope and wish for the best outcome for these two despite the odds. This book also gets incredibly steamy. I seriously thought my e-reader was going to explode from the chemistry! Talk about passion.The descriptive language also caused me to blush a few times! Temper For You has the perfect blend of romance, drama and humor. Hot, dramatic, sexy, raw, intense, inspiring and of course witty. I loved everything about this book and now I must buy all three books in print. These are books you need in your library! I highly recommend this to all new adult, romance, contemporary romance, OMG who am I kidding, I recommend this to ALL readers (at least those 18 and older…due to the…ahem…content. haha)
