Dates from most recent re-read, after a thread on Smart Bitches had me remembering it. A lot of Lori's books (but more her novellas) are comfort reads for me, or were before I started reading a lot more paranormal and MM (and sometimes paranormal MM). Still like this, but see the alphahole-ness of Noah a lot more clearly than on the last read through. I appear to be fond of that characteristic, given my shelves. Love Grace. Was surprised to realize just how much of the book took place over two to three days (better than two-thirds of it). Am reading the sequel now, and still enjoy that one. Expect the third one, a novella, will annoy me more. ( )

When Noah walks in on his fiance Kara having sex with another man he decides that the relationship is off, but as an honourable man he decides to let her blame him for the breakup. This doesn't go down well with his grandmother and her parents.

Grace Jenkins has always felt insecure around men, she feels awkward and insecure and isn't at all comfortable with herself. However she knows that she has to try to help him. He wants her, but whether he just wants to work out his frustration with Kara on her.

It's fun, I did enjoy the read and found the developing relationship quite fun. ( )

little plot, lots of sex which quickly became dull ( )

a new author worth reading; great story; hero is very alpha, however, the heroine could be stronger; predictable but heavy on the steam ( )

Noah Harper has just caught his fiancee in bed with another man. The funny thing is he doesn't really care and it's almost a relief to call the wedding off. However, his grandmother does care about calling the wedding off. Alot.

When Grace learned that her boss has disowned her grandson because he's called his wedding off for undisclosed reasons she is furious and absolutely determined to let Noah know that she's still believes in him. The last thing she expects is to have Noah extract a promise from her to become his bedroom slave. Not that she really minds all that much....

To Much Temptation was a pretty basic contemporary romance, except for the fact that the Grace was overweight. A fact of which we were reminded about constantly. I enjoyed the story, even the fact that the heroine was overweight, but it was very much in your face and maybe a bit overplayed. Other than that it was a pretty standard romance about a gorgeous man who doesn't notice that the woman he works with is madly in love with him until something happens to shake his world up. Lots of bedroom antics and a sweet simple plot make this story an enjoyable and quick read. ( )

Book description
Grace Jenkins has had little experience with men--feeling too awkward and insecure to free the passionate woman inside her. But that hasn't stopped her from dreaming about Noah Harper. Gorgeous, strong and darkly sexy, his rough edge beneath the polish promises no mercy in the bedroom. When Grace learns Noah's engagement has ended in scandal, she shyly offers him her support and her friendship. But Noah's looking for something extra...

Noah wants Grace--badly. He wants to possess those curves that go on forever, to savor her sweet innocence, to take her to the limits of white-hot desire... again and again. What he doesn't want is anything more complicated than that, and he knows Grace is a woman who deserves better. Grace, however, knows exactly what she wants--the kind of ecstasy only Noah can give her. Brazenly, she accepts, and Noah promises to make all her secret fantasies come true...
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0758204310, Mass Market Paperback)

Setting: Contemporary Gillespe, Kentucky

Sensuality: 10

Virginal and voluptuous, Grace Jenkins has secretly loved and lusted after handsome Noah Harper for three years but he was engaged and, therefore, off-limits. Then Noah walks in on his bride-to-be with another man and abruptly breaks off the engagement, refusing to explain the reason for the canceled wedding to his family. His grandmother and his fiancée's family are outraged. Grace rushes to defend him and is stunned when Noah responds by taking her straight to bed. She thinks this is only mutual lust and decides to enjoy the excitement for as long as it lasts while Noah quickly discovers that what he feels for Grace is much more complicated than simple lust. But convincing Grace is another matter entirely--she refuses to see herself as a permanent part of his life. Meanwhile, Noah's ex-fiancée is stirring up trouble with his autocratic grandmother and before she's done, Noah will have to reevaluate his relationship with his grandmother, Grace will have a whole new self-image, and both will face major upheaval in their careers and personal lives.

Author Lori Foster has a reputation for warm, engaging characters combined with sizzling sexual tension and Too Much Temptation has plenty of both. The dominant theme in this novel, however, is that of a woman's sexual awakening and Foster traverses this tricky ground with deft skill. --Lois Dyer
