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…

 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. 


WOW! Another fabulous story from Lori Foster, and Don't Tempt Me is like a kinda get 2 love stories all wrapped and gifted to you in this book. First there is Honor and Jason's story and then intertwined with it you have Honor's BFF, Lexie and her man Sullivan!

Honor is shy and not very trusting of people, she has spent the past few years looking after the Grandfather who raised her, dealing with crazy family issues, and working hard to make a life for herself. She is finally at the point in her life where she can buy a home. The neighborhood where her home is located is a work in progress and just so happens to be full of hot guys, especially the Guthrie Boys...Jason, his brother Hogan and Hogan's son, Colt.

Jason & Honor's relationship start off with a literal bang...she ran over his trash barrel with her moving truck. From there we witness the slow progression of her learning to trust in others (and especially Jason) and Jason's unending patience while working his way into honor's life and heart.

Don't Tempt Me is a little slower paced than Lori's Ultimate series and Men Who Walk The Edge series, but slower paced~meaning tamer, sweeter, and although there is a tiny bit of what you might call suspense, it's not what you would expect as a fan of Lori's books. Please don't take what I said the wrong way, I absolutely enjoyed this book!! It was just a really great story, with wonderful characters and a gently paced plot. A perfect beach read!
