Book Summary

Love comes along when it’s least wanted

Jason Guthrie has no time for entanglements—between helping out his widowed brother and teenage nephew and getting his hometown back on its feet, his days are spoken for. But his nights are another story… And when his lovely new neighbor, Honor Brown, reluctantly accepts his help in remodeling her house, Jason finds himself wishing his handyman skills could knock down the defenses she keeps building around herself.

Martial arts teacher Sullivan Dean knows real danger when he sees it—even when it takes the form of the gorgeous blonde helping her friend move in across the street. After putting his wayward past behind him to focus on teaching control to troubled kids, Sullivan has learned to avoid party girls like Lexie Perkins. But Sullivan can’t seem to keep his hands off the real woman behind that flirty charm—or keep his heart from landing at her feet…

“It’s lust at first sight and a double romance in this new novel of neighbors helping neighbors by the prolific Foster” – Kirkus

My Thoughts

*ARC provided by Publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review*

In Don’t Tempt Me, Honor Brown moves into a poor neighborhood in a house that needs a lot of work. But the place is hers, and she’s excited to put in the work to fix it up, even if she isn’t sure how to go about getting the time to actually do it. Throw in a neighborhood prone to break ins and a few hot concerned men living next door and across the street to her, and she has plenty of volunteers to help her out, though only one of them makes her body sing.

Jason Guthrie is a good guy, who does a lot of things for a lot of people. He loves working with his hands, fixing things up, and he’s good at it. But Honor is determined to do things on her own and while Jason wishes like hell she’d let him help, he can’t help but admire her tenacity to do things on her own. She’s nothing like the women he’s known before, and everything about her intrigues him, but the secrets she’s hiding make him leery to get too close and then determined to find them all out.

Though Honor and Jason’s romance is the primary focus of this book, there is a side romance for Honor’s best friend Lexie and one of the other men living in the neighborhood. You’ll have to read it to find out who, but I can safely say I enjoyed their romance a lot, too.

Another thing I enjoyed about this book was all the different kinds of relationships that went on in this book. From brothers to pseudo sisters, the love and support these characters each gave to one another was a true delight to read and once again reminded me why I love Lori Foster’s work so much. She’s the master at creating meaningful relationships not only between men and women, but also between friends, siblings, and families, both the ones you’re born into and the ones you make for yourself. And I love them all!

A wonderful contemporary romance with amazing characters, set in a fantastic community that I so enjoyed getting to know, Don’t Tempt Me is a book filled with family, friendship, angst, passion, a sense of belonging, courage, and love. I thoroughly enjoyed the read and am seriously looking forward to the next book in this series.

Final Analysis

A true delight!

Book Excerpt

From Don’t Tempt Me by Lori Foster:

Hogan the blue-eyed dad, Colt the mature-looking son and Jason…the far-too-hot shirtless hunk. As she committed the names to memory, Honor glanced at each of them, but repeatedly got drawn back to Jason.

The sun highlighted the cut of his cheekbones, the straight line of his nose and across those sleek, hard shoulders. Why didn’t he put on a shirt? She couldn’t quite keep her gaze from his chest, noting he had just the right amount of dark chest hair going from one well-defined pec to the other then bisecting his body downward…

It wouldn’t kill the man to pull up his well-worn jeans, either. Being healthy and female and, okay, more than a little sex starved, she automatically tracked the treasure trail leading down his abdomen to inside those low-slung jeans…

“Hogan and Colt live here, too,” Jason said while silently accepting her scrutiny.

Busted again. She cleared her throat and got her eyes to focus back on his face. “I see.” To Hogan, she asked, “You and your wife are in the neighborhood?”

Pushing away from the truck, Hogan said, “Colt’s mother is gone.”

That left her floundering. Did he mean…dead? Should she give condolences?

Or maybe he meant she’d moved away.

“For now,” Hogan continued, “we live with Jason.”

Oh. With him. In the same house.

All three of them—right next door to her.

Saving her from the awkward silence, Lexie took over. “I’m Lexie Perkins, and the new homeowner here is Honor Brown.” Then to Jason, she added, “You’re going to make her faint if you don’t let up.”

“Lexie!” Horrified, Honor felt so much heat in her face it nearly singed her. She’d gag her friend if she didn’t stop with the outrageous behavior.

Jason cocked a brow but didn’t look away.
