This is a tale of a woman who has to make it on her own. Armed with a single friend, she has faced down strife, family and infirmity. What a nasty family she has. The things she has had to endure. This book, shows how a person can open themselves up to help and love. How friendship is a balm for the soul. This book is about support. There is romance and very little to no sex. If you looking for steamy, this isn't it. But, if your looking for a sweet comfortable tale it great.
It can be a little long about the middle, with one to many denials here and there. Maybe 20% shorter would do. That said, the narrator, Will Damron did a fine job and made the story work. I liked the other characters. Also, I like the backstory of Alexi and how her story wove in. A nice tidy package. I give this novel a solid thumbs up.

Rather than "Don't Tempt Me" the title of this book should have been "Don't Help Me". While I love strong, assertive and independent female characters, I found Honor's attitude of "I am Superwoman and don't need anyone" incredibly annoying.
Being self reliant is normal and reasonable for a mature adult but being a constant martyr is just dumb. I really didn't understand why the hunky and lovable Jason was so enamored with such a cold, uptight and rigid woman.
The rest of the characters (neighbors & their friends/family) and a cute dog almost made up for the boring heroine. The author did an excellent job of creating several sexy males characters who were mature, gentle & non-violent. Also the narrator was excellent.
