eARC Book review: Don't Tempt Me by Lori Foster
Available July 26th 2016
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…
Far as i can tell this is a stand alone book . I am so used to Lori Foster's books being in a series this is a little foreign for me. It's actually a story about two couples although one takes up a little more page time than the other. Jason Guthrie is a jack of all trades. If it's broke he can fix it. Honor Brown looks like something he would like to fix but she is extremely independent and private and Jason's new neighbor. It takes Jason quite a while to get Honor to trust him and let him in on her secrets. Honor has not had a story book life and once you find out why you understand her so much more. Sullivan Dean is a neighbor and friend of Jason. He takes life seriously but Honor's best friend Lexie Perkins is the exact type of woman he avoids. Something about her still draws him in. She might like life on the wild side but there is more to her that meets the eye if he just takes the time to see it. I enjoyed this book. Both couples were interesting yet different. Jason has a brother living with him and a teenage nephew. Both of these characters added to the story and i loved all of them. Watching the layers of the main characters unfold and discovering who they are was exciting. There is so much depth to each character and I fell in love with each one. Wanted to ring the necks of Honor's family members but her love for her grandfather was moving. Even though the family made it extremely difficult for her she kept at it. Supporting and protecting him from them. An A plus read for me.
