Don’t Tempt Me is the first book in a brand new series by Lori Foster and right off the bat I am already in love with it. We are introduced to amazing new characters and a new town that already has me looking for the next book in the Guthrie Brothers series.

 

Jason Guthrie keeps busy with fixing up things for his neighbors and his community and while working Jason is also helping his widowed brother and nephew get back on their feet. All around he is a good guy so when he meets his new neighbor, Honor, and realizes she is the one who bought the rundown house next door he offers to help fix it up even if she is determined to do it on her own.

 

Honor Brown was raised by her devoted grandfather and she decided it was time to move closer to the nursing home he is now in to spend as much time with him as possible. Honor knew the house she bought was a fixer upper but she already has a lot going on by taking care of her grandfather and working as a hair dresser. She is working herself to death by trying to keep up with getting the house in order but with Jason around and wanting to help with everything she feels like she is losing her independence. The more time that Honor spends in Jason’s company the more the walls that she built up around her are starting to fall but will they stay down when Jason gets a glimpse of her past?

 

From the moment Jason and Honor met they had such great chemistry and even though their meeting for the first time wasn’t that smooth I was already rooting for them as a couple. Both Honor and Jason were such great characters and I was really drawn to them right away. One of the moments I really adored was when Jason and his friends bring Honor in as a part of their family since she was basically all alone. They showed her so much love, devotion, and protection that I wanted to move on the same street as them.

 

Don’t Tempt Me was a sweet and emotional read that had me hooked from the beginning. Ms. Foster introduced new characters that were well thought up and detailed so well that they meshed perfectly. There wasn’t one character in this new group of friends that I didn’t want to know more about. Don’t Tempt Me focuses on the romance between Jason and Honor but there is a side romance going on as well between Honor’s best friend Lexie and her neighbor Sullivan. These two were funny and I wished they had their own book but I am looking forward to seeing them again in future stories.

 

I just loved Don’t Tempt Me and watching these two polar opposite couples fall in love. In true Lori Foster fashion Don’t Tempt Me had me laughing, crying and most of all swooning. I am really looking forward to see where Ms. Foster will take the Guthrie Brothers series and most of all I can’t wait to revisit with these characters.

Alice Appleton has a dark past she would like to keep there. Her current life is quiet and predictable just the way she wants it. There is only one complication and that is her sexy-as-sin neighbor. He inspires desires she thought were gone forever.

Detective Reece Bareden came close to losing it all but his neighbor saved the day. Now he wants to learn more about the quiet Alice. The more time he spends around Alice the more he wants to uncover everything about the sweet nymph. But will he like what he discovers about her?

Alice finds trouble and Reece is willing to do anything to keep this woman safe but will she let him? If Reece and Alice hope to find a happily ever after they will both have to Bare It All.

Lori Foster’s Bare It All is contemporary romance at its best! Sexy-as hell-hero? Check. Sweet but haunted heroine? Check. A thrilling plot? Check. Mix them all together and you get a guaranteed afternoon of edge of your seat enjoyment.

I absolutely love the fact that Ms. Foster gave Alice a bigger story. I first met Alice in the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series. It was great to find Alice happy and to watch her fall in love with Reece. I really love Reece! The way he treats Alice is so special and will make the readers fall in love with this couple.

Alice’s story arc is so great in this novel. She really surprised me by how strong she has become. The moments between Alice and Reece are so wonderful. I really became immersed in this novel from page one. I simply couldn’t put it down. Bare It All is a first-class romance and you don’t want to miss out!

Vanity Baker has been watching Stack Hannigan for a long time. Now they are finally moving past flirting stage into the “let’s get it on” stage. It doesn’t take long for Stack and Vanity to realize that they have a lot more going on than friends with benefits. But can Stack put aside his issues long enough to grab on to Vanity and just be happy?

 

Yummy, yum, yum!!! Stack and Vanity steamed up the pages and made me fall in love! I have to admit I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Stack. Although he was super hot, he was hard headed and never wanted to accept help. I could tell that Vanity’s need to help was going to get her into hot water with him. Especially with Stack’s freeloader of a brother-in-law looking to start trouble and his sister’s inability to see her husband for the loser he was. No wonder I couldn’t stop turning the pages!  Tough Love is another winner from Lori Foster!
