#ARC #Review: Don't Tempt Me by Lori Foster
What an incredibly sweet read! Don't Tempt Me is an excellent read that celebrates family, friends, and love. I find it very interesting that two couples' stories unfold throughout Don't Tempt Me. I don't think I've read too many stories in the same vein. Admittedly, the main focus is on Jason and Honor, but we definitely get more than a glance at the evolving romance between Lexie and Sullivan. I may have even liked to see a little bit more of Lexie and Sullivan--one more scene that was theirs and theirs alone. Nonetheless, what we did see of them was satisfying.
Now...Jason, Hogan, and Colt are seriously bae. They are an impressive family unit, and I admire them so--especially Colt and his endearing personality. That boy has manners. SWOON. The Guthrie men are not only handsome, but incredibly kind. They never hesitate to help a stranger or a friend, and I just can't get over how genuine they are as characters. The men are definitely my favorite part of this book.
Honor is just as kind--maybe even more so. But she is also incredibly stubborn and while I can see where that stubborn independence stemmed from, I couldn't always fully understand her reluctance to accept help. Thankfully, Jason helped her realize that accepting help is not a weakness. The two really are a great couple, and I look forward to seeing more of them in the next book, which I have a feeling will be even better than Don't Tempt Me. How could it not? We already had a front row seat to the sexual tension between Hogan and Violet, and it was spectacular. I want more! I hope Nathan meets a lady in the next book, too. (;
Don't Tempt Me is the perfect read for those looking to get away from the dark reality of today's world. It's a super light, easy read that will leave you remarkably giddy and hopeful.
