Gabriel "Gabe" Lewis retired from the NFL and returned home to Cherry Springs. He combined his passion for football with camping and is now the owner of a football camp for teens. His summers are dedicated to spending time with family and teaching his campers about the sport he loves.

Zoey Zahn is a quirky, introverted writer and self-proclaimed geek. When she's asked if she'll accompany her nephew, Christopher, to camp, Zoey agrees, envisioning quiet evenings of writing in the great outdoors. After she stumbles upon Gabe, however, quiet evenings alone are the last thing on her mind.

The chemistry between Gabe and Zoey is undeniable, but as camp ends, a brewing storm causes their blooming relationship to fumble. All Gabe knows is that Zoey is Too Tempting to deny, and he's determined to overcome the obstacles between them to be the man she deserves.

Too Tempting is the first in an all-new small town romance series by Bethany Lopez. Follow the Lewis cousins of Cherry Springs, the kind of place where there are festivals for every occasion and everyone knows your business, as they learn about love and loss.

My Review

Bethany Lopez kicks off a new series (Lewis Cousins) with Too Tempting, and it is a complex romance that is entertaining, sexy and packs an emotional punch.
Gabe Lewis is a famous, retired NFL player who now runs a youth football summer camp. Author Zoey Zhan arrives at Gabe’s camp to chaperone her nephew, but she mistakenly arrives a week early, and there’s no nephew or any campers there. Gabe is attracted to Zoey, and when he discovers that she needs someplace quiet to work on her next book, he invites her to wait out the week at the camp with him. She and Gabe fall hard and fast for each other, and their instant lust/love feels a little rushed, but Gabe is an all-around nice guy, so I can see why Zoey might have been a goner from the beginning. As they embark on their heated relationship and things grow serious, real life throws a complication at both of them that neither expected. It could prove to be the roadblock to their happily ever after.
Too Tempting’s story wasn’t what I expected – there is no way I could have predicted the twists in the plot, and I love an author who can surprise me in a romance. This is the first book of Bethan Lopez’s that I have read, and I am already looking forward to more of her work.

ARC provided by the author’s publicist, but no one made me write this review and my opinions are honest and my own.
