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.

Too Tempting is not like any other story I have read. And I mean that is a good/bad way. I was really enjoying the story, up until the last 20-30 percent. 

The story started off with Gabe Lewis, a retired NFL star running his summer camp for kids. He is a good guy who is giving back. The Zoe shows up. Her nephew is attending camp and need a chaperon and his mom couldn't do it. The problem is, Zoe shows up a week early to the camp. Gabe offers her to stay anyways with him and his family. They are getting the camp ready, and since there is a pull he feels towards Zoe, he wants to explore it.

I liked their quirky relationship. Sure, I thought it was kinda too fast to fall for someone you don't know, but this is a book, so it worked. 

And then, just like that, there is a plot twist so crazy, that I almost didn't finish the book. There is some things that don't work for me with books, and this twist was one of them. I am keeping this spoiler free, so I can't say what happens. I will say, I wish the pet stuck with just Gabe and Zoe and didn't work the second half of the book in it at all......
