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.

*3.5 stars*
A tangled web…
With an intriguing blurb and an author completely unknown to me, I started this story with anticipation, and hope, of something surprising. I got just that!
Gabe is running the football camp that Zoey’s nephew is attending and that opens the door for a summer romance that quickly heats up. Gabe’s cousins were a huge part of the camp and provided a ‘friends’-like feel as they had fun, and squabbled, in only the way family can.
These characters were instantly likable and the funny and warm Zoey immediately fit into the tight-knit group. With the camp as a backdrop, and some unsaid truths between them, Gabe and Zoey’s courtship had all the feels with just the right amount of spice. There was instant attraction but it didn’t feel out of place at all… I guess the pace, how they felt, made it feel exactly right.
“When she pulled back, lips swollen, cheeks flushed, and eyes heavy, I asked, “Do I look bored?”
This story had my complete attention for most of the book until something just… changed. A dramatic curveball came out of left field and felt decidedly out of place. The situation felt crafted somehow and for me, did not work.
If I could rate the story in sections the first half would be have been a strong 4.5 which means this author will be on my TBR list again.
