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…

Don't Tempt Me is the first book in Lori Foster's new Guthrie Brothers series. I thought this was a sweet, easy read. I enjoyed these characters. This book focuses more on Jason and Honor's relationship then Sullivan and Lexie's.
Honor moves into a "fixer-upper" in a up-and-coming neighborhood. She is used to doing things on her own. So when her (hot) new neighbor (Jason), his brother, and his nephew offer to help, she is shocked and a little reluctant to accept their help. Honor is determined to improve her home and make it her own. And that (stubborn) determination is something that Jason definitely takes notice to. Eventually Jason is able to earn Honor's trust and she beings to let him in.
There is a side romance between Honor's best friend, Lexie, and her (other) new neighbor Sullivan. I thought their romance was sweet, but I felt their's was a little rushed. I kinda wish they had their own separate story.
The thing I loved the most about this book was the overall sense of community and friendship that was at the heart of Don't Tempt Me.
