Review: Don't Tempt Me by Lori Foster

Don't Tempt MeDon't Tempt Me by Lori Foster

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…

First in a new series by Foster and all I could think about is OMG I can't wait for more! Amazing new characters who I absolutely couldn't get enough of.

Jason is an all around good guy and keeps busy fixing and building things for the people in his town. He is also is helping his widowed brother and nephew get back on their feet by living with him (see good guy). When Honor moves into the rundown house next door he feels not only protective towards her but he also wants to help even if she doesn't want it.

Honor was raised by her grandfather and she moved to be closer to the home he is in. She is working herself to death by keeping up with the house she had a lot to do on, working as a hairdresser, and taking care of her grandfather. Honor is independent and wants to keep it that way but Jason isn't making it easy. The more time she spends with him the more he is breaking down those walls she built up.

I absolutely LOVED these two characters separate and together as a couple. From the moment they met they had great chemistry even if their first encounter was a little bit odd. The more I read the more I realized that they needed each other. I especially enjoyed how Jason and his brother and his friends took Honor in as a member of their family since she basically had none. It was really sweet and definitely made this book better if that was even possible.

Since this is the first book we are introduced to so many new characters and I haven't found one yet I wasn't interested in knowing more about. While Jason and Honor get majority of the page time their is another romance going on with Honor's neighbor Sullivan and her best friend Lexie. And these two are funny! I enjoyed their story as well.

Don't Tempt Me was a sweet read. I loved watching these two couples who are polar opposites fall in love. In true Foster fashion her story made me laugh, cry and totally swoon for the HEA. Now I'm ready for the next book in this series and I'm so hoping it Hogan's book for the simple fact I want to know more about the situation with his ex wife even though it was spoken about briefly in this story but also the attraction between him and Violet because their chemistry is hotter then hot.

You definitely don't want to miss this book!
