DON’T TEMPT ME Synopsis:
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…
"It's lust at first sight and a double romance in this new novel of neighbors helping neighbors by the prolific Foster"—Kirkus
Here is A Special Excerpt from Don't Tempt Me...
Hogan the blue-eyed dad, Colt the mature-looking son and Jason…the far-too-hot shirtless hunk. As she committed the names to memory, Honor glanced at each of them, but repeatedly got drawn back to Jason.
The sun highlighted the cut of his cheekbones, the straight line of his nose and across those sleek, hard shoulders. Why didn’t he put on a shirt? She couldn’t quite keep her gaze from his chest, noting he had just the right amount of dark chest hair going from one well-defined pec to the other then bisecting his body downward…
It wouldn’t kill the man to pull up his well-worn jeans, either. Being healthy and female and, okay, more than a little sex starved, she automatically tracked the treasure trail leading down his abdomen to inside those low-slung jeans…
“Hogan and Colt live here, too,” Jason said while silently accepting her scrutiny.
Busted again. She cleared her throat and got her eyes to focus back on his face. “I see.” To Hogan, she asked, “You and your wife are in the neighborhood?”
Pushing away from the truck, Hogan said, “Colt’s mother is gone.”
That left her floundering. Did he mean…dead? Should she give condolences?
Or maybe he meant she’d moved away.
“For now,” Hogan continued, “we live with Jason.”
Oh. With him. In the same house.
All three of them—right next door to her.
Saving her from the awkward silence, Lexie took over. “I’m Lexie Perkins, and the new homeowner here is Honor Brown.” Then to Jason, she added, “You’re going to make her faint if you don’t let up.”
“Lexie!” Horrified, Honor felt so much heat in her face it nearly singed her. She’d gag her friend if she didn’t stop with the outrageous behavior.
Jason cocked a brow but didn’t look away.

Here Is My Review Of Don't Tempt Me...
It started off as an innocent mission to help out his beautiful new neighbor Honor Brown fix up her house, but the more time Jason Guthrie spends with her the more he wants to get know more of her, problem is she isn't interested in any of that. She has her impenetrable walls up, and she is deflecting all the passes he makes, and leaving him confused, and driving him to prove to her that she can put her faith and trust in him. He normally doesn't do relationships, feelings, or sticking around for more than one night... but something about this girl has abandoning his normal, and wanting something he's never wanted before...forever!
Sullivan Dean learned the hard way that women like Lexie Perkins bring nothing but trouble to your life, so he does all he can to avoid getting involved with them, but for some reason the more he resists the stronger the pull gets between them. There is something about the beautiful blonde that he can't deny and she has him abandoning everything he learned long ago to be true, the more he gets to know her, the more he realizes he may have pegged her wrong, maybe she is more than just a reckless party girl after all...
I absolutely loved this book, from start to finish, Ms. Foster has created some truly endearing characters here that I fell for as soon as I opened the book! They drew me right into their world, and captivated my undivided attention right up until the very end, and have me looking forward to a return visit! Anytime you have the opportunity to settle down with a book from this author I HIGHLY encourage you to embrace it with open arms, she has a knack for creating these intriguing characters that you can't help but want to follow into their world and get completely swept up in their lives, and before long you find yourself being forever changed by what you find!
If you are looking for a read that is certain to stir your emotions, warm your heart, and leave you with a smile then look no further Don't Tempt Me is the perfect read for you!!
