Editorial Reviews Review

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

From Publishers Weekly

The fact that its contrived plot sounds more like a fabricated story for a sex column in a glossy mag than anything that might happen in the real world pleasingly plump, virginal 25-year-old secretary wins undying lust from her boss's bad-boy grandson does not necessarily diminish the fun to be had in the latest contemporary romance from Foster (Sex Appeal). After Noah Harper finds the fianc‚e he does not love in bed with another man, he breaks off the engagement, deciding uncomplicated sex is all he needs. Besides, he was marrying Kara only to please his difficult grandmother, Agatha, whose popular Gillespe, Ky., restaurant he manages. Enter Agatha's unassuming secretary, Grace Jenkins. Insecure and inexperienced, but with a huge, unrequited crush on Noah, Grace agrees to Noah's terms: she'll become his sex slave and he'll teach her how to enjoy her body. Of course, the reader knows all along that the two will fall in love; it's merely a question of when they'll realize it themselves and what complications they'll stumble over on the path to knowledge. Billed as "a novel of erotic romance," this is harmless entertainment for readers who favor brisk romps between the sheets with a little story thrown in. It is sure to satisfy Foster's fan base and kudos to her for making a full-figured character the star of the show.

The last thing Noah Harper expects to find is his fiancée in bed with another man. He can't seem to get angry about it; instead he feels only relief. Because Noah and Kara's families have a history together and his grandmother adores Kara, Noah takes the blame for calling off the wedding so that Kara won't suffer through a scandal. Now Noah decides all he wants is a hot and heavy affair with some woman, any woman, to make up for the less than hot times he ever had in Kara's bed. And this woman must play by all of his rules, at least in the bedroom.
Grace Jenkins is Noah's grandmother's personal assistant and has been half in love with Noah for three years. Hardly experienced with men, and possessing a less than favorable opinion about her full-figured looks, Grace can't believe it when Noah proposes they carry on an affair after he breaks up with his fiancée. Grace, however, just can't say no to the man she's pined for all this time. Noah also makes her feel incredibly sexy and beautiful.
What follows is a story that has it all! Lori Foster shines as she breathes incredible and realistic life into Noah, Grace, and all of the secondary characters. Everyone has an integral part in the storyline, from Noah's ditzy former fiancée to his sarcastically funny and adorable brother, Ben. And the grandmother? Well, she just wants what's best (or what she thinks is best) for her grandson and isn't beyond a bit of manipulation in order to get it. Conflict and humor abound among all, but I most connected and sympathized with Grace. Grace is a "real" woman, inside and out, in my opinion. She only lets Noah THINK he's the boss, which leads to some hysterically funny and poignant scenes.

There is only one word that kept coming to my mind while reaing TOO MUCH TEMPTATION, that word was WOW! This book deserves a higher sensuality rating than 10. I thought Caught in the Act was good until a friend gave me TMT to read.
Grace and Noah were the perfect couple and they sizzled on every page. Just from the eye contact between the two, you knew there would be red hot passion when they came together. Even though Grace was a virgin, she had loved Noah since she first laid eyes on him. Grace wasn't model thin and she thought therefore not perfect, so she never expected Noah to even look at her twice. Boy did she have it wrong. Noah being the man that he was let her know repeatedly and in every way imaginable that he liked her just the way she was, not skinny not fat but beautifully voluptuous and he wanted to taste and experience every inch of her. (pant, pant)
This story was not only sexy it was funny. Thanks in part to Noah's equally handsome brother, Ben.
Just let me say this, BUY THE BOOK! Once I started, there was no putting it down. There was not a dull page in the entire book! That's right 280 pages of sheer entertainment.
Alright Ms. Foster, when are we going to get Ben's story? I can just imagine the type woman to finally capture his eye and his heart. Let it be soon. Okay?

Lori Foster just continues to get better and better, and in Too Much Temptation she delivers another 100% read. Grace Jenkins is a lady who alot of us can relate to; she's not perfect! She's shy, she feels like she's overweight, she's not completely satisfied in her job, and she has the hots for her boss's grandson (who just happens to be engaged) in the worst sort of way. She thinks Noah wouldn't notice her if she walked around naked!
Noah Harper is the perfect grandson--he runs his grandmother's business, is engaged to a woman his grandmother loves, and pretty much falls in with his grandmother's every wish. Until he finds his oh so perfect fiancee cheating on him! Then he starts thinking about it--did he ever really ask her to marry him, or did they just fall into it? He feels relief that he's not caught in the relationship anymore, instead of the despair he should be feeling. But his grandmother is not happy when she hears he's cut off the engagement!!
Grace, being the wonderful person she, rushes to Noah to offer her comfort and her support--never dreaming that while she's there, and inebrieated Noah will clue her into some fantasies he's been having about her?! This leads to Grace and Noah embarking on a sensual journey to experience anything and everything they can--but it will only be sex.
Lori WOW's us with this story--it starts out with a bang, and doesn't let up for the entire story! Noah and Grace just ignite sparks off one another, and there is real emphasis on Noah liking Grace just the way she is. You can feel their relationship with one another build, and the SEX! Wow--it is sexy, sensual, and sweet. Her charachters are so real, true to life that they could walk off the page, and I wouldn't be suprised.

Format: Paperback
Finally, an author has written a romance novel featuring a large woman who actually seems to be a LARGE woman, not the typical 10 pounds overweight "large" woman of much modern romantic fiction. Lori Foster gives us a heroine named Grace who is shy and uncertain of herself as a woman because of her looks. Who hasn't been there? Then, because this IS a romantic fantasy, Foster gives her (and we lucky readers)the perfect man in Noah: handsome, virile, and kind, he's actually attracted to both her sweet nature and her full figure. Did I mention this was a romantic fantasy?
...the scene where he awakens with a hangover and sees a very large white cotton bra made me laugh out loud. The scene where she is ashamed to reveal her dress size for the waitress uniform will resonate with any plus size female who's had to work in the fast food or maid service industry during college. The scene where Noah catches her in her too-snug uniform and teases her out of it will make you wish those things happened in real life.
The plot is slight, but Foster infuses it with genuinely funny scenes and some very hot [moments] between Noah and Grace. He's insaitable, she's always well-pleasured, and the reader gets busy dog-earing pages!
