REVIEW : Don't Tempt Me by Lori Foster

 (Loving the new stamp of newness lol)
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…


Fuuuuck this was an emotional punch that I didn’t expect.

I also didn’t expect the double couples but it did offer up a compare and contrast between Honor and her BFF Lexie and the dynamics of their friendship.

Chicks before dicks! 

Except these dicks were special and life altering and maybe just a little bit annoying with the constant “helping” imo.

Honor has moved into a new neighborhood and she has just the sweetest and most handsome family of good men surrounding her. The Guthrie boys. Jason, Hogan, and young nephew Colt (and omg I adore him btw)

I originally thought Hogan and Lexie were a lock but then in strolls Sullivan and he swoops Lexie right off her easy breezy heart.

Jason and Honor go through some shiiiit. Like asshole family type shit which is heightened by Honor’s secret keeping.

Honor broke my heart, truly. Her “family” is terrible and have no sense of remorse at all.

I do love that in the end, the main point was made that it’s not about what family you come from, it’s about the family you make for yourself. Be it long-time friends or people who are dropped into your life for reasons unknown. Family is always there.
