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…

EXCERPT
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—“
              “Hello.”
              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?”
              “Lexie!”
              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.

                                            
It’s lust at first sight and a double romance in this new novel of neighbors helping neighbors by the prolific Foster”—Kirkus

My Review:  Honor Brown hasn't had an easy life.  Abandoned by her parents, she was raised by a loving grandfather who she in turn loved deeply.  Nevertheless, the issues and circumstances regarding her past have left her rather closed off and determined to be independent and not be a bother or burden on anyone else.  That said, her deep love for her grandfather is the reason she finds herself moving in next door to the oh so hot Jason Guthrie, in a house that to most would be better off torn down than lived in.  Honor loves the house, and it's location allows her to be close to the center where her grandfather is housed at.  

Jason Guthrie is taken with Honor from the moment he lays eyes on her, and the more time he spends with her, the more he is determined to get past the walls she's erected to keep herself safe.  Their romance is sweet, sexy, sometimes serious, and sometimes funny, especially with all the great secondary characters that are part of the story as well, and I did love them all.  Don't Tempt Me is not your typical girl next door love story by any stretch, and Foster provides a really great story for her readers, while setting the stage with the awesome secondary characters for future installments that I can't wait to get my hands on.  Definitely check this one out.
