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…
4.5 Hunky Neighbor Stars!! I really loved this book, classic Lori Foster!!
Where to begin….. Don’t Tempt Me starts when Honor moves into her new fixer-upper house with the help of her BFF, Lexie. Right off the bat her sexy neighbor Jason, his brother Hogan, and his adorable teen nephew Colt start to intrude in her very private, quiet, and busy life, and things get a little bit crazy for her.
Now about the Guthrie Brothers (and Colt)….they are very friendly, generous, caring, honest, funny, and super protective. Jason was attracted to Honor right from the start but Honor has a lot of personal stuff to work through. She has family issues that make her over independent, abandonment issues, and it’s really not easy for her to trust or depend on anyone. Regardless of Honor’s shields Jason falls for Honor early on in the story and has no issue waiting for her to let him in, with a few nudges. Meanwhile, he makes sure that he’s in her space as much as possible…actually, all the Guthrie men invade her space.
“She’d spent so much time shut off from the world, rejecting care and attention, and now she had it in spades. He wanted her to accept him, to accept them…because he didn’t come alone. He was a package deal, all the chaos, insanity, and fun included.”
There was a bit of drama and many heartfelt moments, the hero and heroine were definitely a good match. We also got a secondary storyline involving Lexie and Honor’s new neighbor Sullivan which was a fun bonus. All the secondary characters were great and I can’t wait to get more of them.
All-in-all, there were some parts where the Honor was a little too pushy about her independence but she’s so likable it’s easy to overlook. Lori Foster fans will be happy with this book, after all, what’s not to like?! We get a hunky, self-confident hero with an understanding heart and heroine with a troubled past who needs a hunky self-confident hero who will make her feel safe and secure!!
