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…
Our Review of DON’T TEMPT ME by Lori Foster
Don’t Tempt Me is an amazing start to a new series—something different than the Ultimatum Series—and with two budding romances in one book, how can you go wrong? Besides, once you read this book you will be looking for a way to move into this neighborhood to surround yourself with the sexy alpha males that seem to be a staple.
Honor is a young lady trying to make her own way in the world, and purchasing her own house to fix up in order to be closer to her grandfather is just what is needed. But Honor is still hiding from the hurt in her life, and she has built up some serious walls in order to protect herself from further hurt and disappointment. But Jason Guthrie sees something in her that has him pulling his focus away from work and family—something that has him searching for ways to help her without making her feel as though she is losing face. And with the secrets she is keeping and the danger that seems to be following her, Jason can’t seem to back away, even if Honor is insistent.
And Lexie Perkins, Honor’s best friend and complete opposite… Well, that girl is a spitfire with a heart of gold. So when she sets her sights on Honor’s other sexy neighbor, Sullivan Dean, she is willing to go to the mat to make sure she can win him over. But Sullivan has his own doubts. Sure, Lexie is sexy as hell, but he is done with the party girls. Wanting to change his life and make something of himself, Sullivan doesn’t have time for distraction or someone who could potentially ruin his reputation and the work he does with kids.
With all the doubts, fears, and uncertainty about opening one’s heart to someone else, will these couples be able to find their happily ever after?
I quickly devoured Don’t Tempt Me in one sitting as I immediately found myself drawn to the character development. From the embarrassing first meeting when Honor hits the garbage cans as she pulls into the driveway, altering her new neighbors to her arrival, to the panty-melting conversations and passionate embraces that led to acceptance and love, these characters offered an emotional journey to find love, friends, and family when they were least expecting it.
And stay tuned, as the Guthrie men and their neighbors are just getting started. It seems the town of Clearbrook is just beginning to gain the attraction it is needing.
“It’s lust at first sight and a double romance in this new novel of neighbors helping neighbors by the prolific Foster”—Kirkus
What a way to make a first impression. Casting a glare at her friend, Honor said, “Shush it. And for heaven’s sake, stop staring!”
“Too late.” Lexie quickly fluffed her short pale blond hair and adjusted the V-neck of her shirt, tugging it a tad lower. “They’re coming this way.”
“Oh God.” After a deep breath, Honor put the truck in park, turned it off, and—okay, she needed one more breath. “Roll up your window. Pretend you don’t see them. Maybe if we rush into the house real fast, they’ll leave us alo—“
Cringing, Honor glanced toward Lexie—and found all three men peering into the truck at them. They were each so tall they had to duck down to see in. One guy wore a T-shirt, one a polo, and the other wore no shirt at all.
Combined they gave the impression of masculine curiosity, dark hair and beard shadow. Two of them grinned, and those grins had definite impact.
But the intense expression on the shirtless one about stole Honor’s breath.
She blinked and stared, blinked and stared. Repeat.
The youngest of the three, the one in a T-shirt, laughed. “Busted. No sneaking off now.”
“Colt,” the unsmiling man said in a low, deep voice that teased over her nerve endings and made her heart race. “Pick up the can and spilled garbage, will you?”
Colt grinned. “Yes, sir.” And off he went—with Lexie craning her neck to track him.
The smiling guy propped a shoulder against the side of the window frame and crossed his arms over his chest. With a warning in his tone, said, “He’s seventeen.”
“Who?” Lexie asked.
“My son.” He nodded toward Colt. “Just so you know.”
Jaw dropping, Lexie took another look. “No way. Does Clearbrook have testosterone in the water or something? He looks at least twenty-one.”
Shrugging a thick shoulder, the guy said, “True enough.” Heat shot into Honor’s cheeks. This situation just kept getting worse and worse. Not only had she taken out their can and been overheard conspiring to avoid them, but now Lexie gawked at an underage kid, never mind that the “kid” did look a whole lot older.
“As his dad,” the man continued, “it keeps me on my toes.”
“You sure you’re his dad?” Lexie looked back and forth between both men. “Because he looks more like—“
“My brother,” he interrupted. “I know. Jason got Dad’s eyes, and so did Colt.”
Brothers? Honor took another look—and caught Shirtless looking back. She swallowed.
“Bet your dad’s a stud, too, huh?”
After winking at Honor, Colt’s father met Lexie’s gaze. “We all inherited his features.”
True, Honor thought. Though the one talking appeared just under six feet, and Cold had to be at least six-three, they shared similar features and overall coloring. Only the eye color was different, with the father’s eyes pale blue instead of the rich dark brown of his son and brother. The shape was the same though, and they each had ridiculously long, dreamy black lashes.
Without really thinking about it, Honor said, “You don’t look old enough to be his dad.”
He shrugged. “I was just out of high school. Call it a youthful indiscretion that I’ve never regretted.”
Honor smiled, enjoying his pride in Colt—until she realized that his brother’s eyes had narrowed, not with menace, but with new awareness as he stared at her mouth.
She couldn’t recall the last time a man had looked at her like that. Might’ve been, oh…never.
