Book Review: Don't Tempt Me

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…

There are times when I am just looking for a feel good story and DON'T TEMPT ME fills the requirement perfectly. It's set in a small town that is trying to improve its image with all kinds of friendly townsfolk and very hot men.

Honor had NO idea just what she was getting into when she moved to Clearbrook.  She has learned to depend on herself only but next door, there are three guys that are determined to help her out and keep an eye on her.  And it doesn't help her piece of ,mind that they are all incredibly hot.   

Now her best friend Lexie, self proclaimed party girl, knows just what to do with all these hot men which includes having fun with one of them and setting Honor up with another.  After all, there has to be some perks for Honor moving to a small town. 

I really enjoyed DON'T TEMPT ME.  It actually has two stories interwoven; Honor and Jason's tale, and Lexie and Sullivan's.   Even though there are actually four main characters, Ms. Foster has done a fantastic job of character development for each.  Honor especially grows and really opens up in this book.  Lexie doesn't really change but someone finally recognizes her for the gold that she really is.

I do recommend  DON'T TEMPT ME to any of my readers who enjoy contemporary love stories.  It has an enjoyable story line, great characters and a bit of conflict with Honor's not so nice relatives.  There is some sex in this story but nothing extremely graphic.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
