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.

I always enjoy books by author Bethany Lopez. She creates fast-paced contemporary romances filled with humorous moments, spicy moments, characters to root for and believable situations. Her latest, Too Tempting, is the first of a new series, Lewis Cousins, and I loved it!

Gabe is a retired football player and runs a summer camp for kids. Zoey is a successful author, an adorable geek, and loyal to her sister and nephew, Christopher. When she steps in to accompany Christopher to summer camp, she arrives a bit early. As in the camp hasn't opened yet. When she meets Gabe the sparks fly and their attraction is instant. Interestingly enough, both keep their true identities secret which helps set up an interesting dilemma later on.

I usually criticize insta-love in stories for various reasons, but in Too Tempting the instant attraction works. The author builds up the momentum between this couple, playing off of their intense connection for various reasons while keeping readers riveted to the page. The pacing remains steady and the characters are so enjoyable I flew through the book in one sitting. 

I really enjoyed watching Gabe and Zoey play off of each other and fall farther for one another each time they meet. They make a great romantic couple. Zoey's dedication to family comes into question later on when an unforeseen situation arises. I won't spoil the outcome but will say it certainly creates tension for the characters. Gabe has a big family and his cousins are an interesting group of characters. I look forward to their individual stories in this series. Ms. Lopez has another hit series for her fans.

Rating: 5 Loved it!
Cover comment: Look at that cover. It's hot!
Book source: I received a promotional copy in return for my honest review.
