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…
Don't Tempt Me by Lori Foster
I was looking for a sweet, easy, moving, contemporary romance and that is just what I found in Don’t Tempt Me.
Honor is moving into a real “fix me upper”. Use to doing everything on her own, Honor is taken aback when her hot neighbor, his brother and his brother’s son come over to help. She doesn’t know how the ask or accept help which makes their first encounter quite rocky.
Honor puts everything into fixing her home, Jason can’t help but be impressed with Honor’s focus and conviction but he and his nephew keep inserting themselves into Honor’s life. Eventually they make that connection and break past her barriers.
When vandals strike at Honor’s home, she discovers that she has already collected a good group of neighbors that have become more than acquaintances.
Jason’s ex shows up, I had a hard time believing Honor was so unaffected even if they were destined to become best of friends, I don’t see any woman being 100% fine immediately with an ex. That was my only complaint with the story.
There is a side-romance between Lexie, Honor’s 1 friend, and Sullivan.
Overall, I found Don’t Tempt Meto be the perfect beach read romance.
