Ben loves the ladies, and they love him right back. He enjoys his life as owner of a motel / diner / bar complex, and is happy with his life. Ben has very few inhibitions. He loves his brother, his mother and is beginning to come to terms with his grandmother, Agatha. He enjoys women, but is happy with the status quo. Into his life waltzes Sierra Murphy - new owner of her own landscaping business whose offices are just across the street from Ben's motel. The attraction between them is instant. Ben wants hot sex, but Sierra although attracted to Ben, doesn't want sex at all. Or so she thinks - it is up to Ben to convince her, to find out the very private Sierra's secrets and open her up to him. Only in doing so, he finds he's also opened himself to her. And then her past comes back to stalk her...
What I like about Foster, her 'warts and all' approach to her characters, especially on the sensual side, is actually what gave me a problem in the first part of this book. Ben is supremely confident in his sexual prowess, due to extensive experience. He initially actively seeks to dominate Sierra sexually, in part because she is able to stand up for herself verbally but seems to have no defences from him once they touch. I found this extremely unattractive in Ben, and I found particularly distasteful his and Sierra's comparison of their own activities with those in Ben's past.Read more ›
It was great to catch up with the familiar characters and watch Ben fall inlove with Sierra (including some brilliant sex scenes).
Definately worth buying.

Sierra Murphy had moved to Gillespie to open her landscape business, and to become a success. She�s spent the last few years trying to make up for a mistake she�d made in the past, a mistake that still haunted her today, and all she wanted was to be left alone. She didn�t need or want a man. Sex was overrated anyway, as far as she was concerned. But she just couldn�t believe it when she saw the sexily perfect Ben Badwin, and realized that he was determined to convince her that they needed to get together. And when a storm blows out her window, and forces her to bunk over at his place, he does convince her that there may be more to this sex thing than she�d previously seen�
Sierra and Ben are just perfect for one another. Sierra is working to build herself into a competent businesswoman, but already she�s a woman of determination and spirit. And Ben is still struggling to iron out his feelings over family matter that have to do with a domineering grand mother, and be a success at his motel and diner. While he�s always made time for women�for he loves them all, any shape, and size, any age�he�s never had a woman impact his life the way Sierra has. She makes him long for more.
Lori Foster has delivered in spades for those of us who were waiting for the second Badwin brother. Ben is an incredibly sexy, sweet and determined hero who she�s breathed life into on the pages of this story. Wow, where can I find one? And Sierra is just the perfect mix of vulnerability and strength, making us both admire and like her. The sexy scenes steam up the pages, and the wonderful love story makes this an incredible read. Kudos, Lori for another top notch read!
Sierra wants nothing to do with tangled up involvements, especially with a man like Ben Badwin whose good looks should make him illegal. Instead, she's concentrating on getting her new landscaping business off the ground. Ben's sexy looks and gentlemanly ways soon have Sierra in a state of constant arousal and confusion. A recent divorce from a very controlling man has made Sierra very leery of most men. What's a woman to do?
Well, if the woman is a character in one of Lori Foster's books, you know she won't be in a state of constant arousal and confusion for too long! NEVER TOO MUCH is a bit of a switch from Lori's usual fare. Oh, not in the sexy, steamy department, but how Sierra and Ben get to that point. Who says only women are teases?? I was hooked from the first page and could have very easily finished this in one sitting - if real life had let me.
Ms. Foster has an uncanny ability to create characters that grab onto readers' hearts and don't let go until the end. Even then, you're sorry to turn the last page. NEVER TOO MUCH is a delightful tale about two very strong-minded and strong-willed people, each with their own set of issues that must be resolved before they can finally commit to each other. Some scenes are heartbreaking while others, especially where Ben's mother and grandmother are involved, are tender or hysterical. The sub romance between Ben's mother and Sierra's friend and coworker is just as satisfying as the main romance.
I highly recommend NEVER TOO MUCH as classic Lori Foster with a little bit of a twist. A sequel to TOO MUCH TEMPTATION, this tale can be read alone, but my advice is to read TMT first to get the whole effect of all the characters and how their relationships develop.
Ben is a sexy motel/diner owner who sees Sierra and wants her immediately. Sierra is a sassy, tough women who is busy getting her landscaping business off the ground and doesn't need a man messing up her life. It's up to Ben to change Sierra's mind....
You can't go wrong with this book.
Ben and Sierra's story is really multi-layered story and Ms. Foster takes the time to build the story between the two characters and does not have them jumping into bed right off. I feel that this adds to the story and the tension between the two main characters.
Ben loves women and he has a great respect for them. Sierra has been taught by her one and only experience that men can be cruel and hurtful. Her ex-husband was abusive not only physically but mentally as well. He father did not care about her situation and turned his back on her. What sane woman would not be careful? Ms. Foster is just being true to how a person would act in a similar situation. Sierra is on her own and alone with the exception of her friend Kent. Together they are starting her landscaping business. Ben's own hotel is across the street from Sierra and the sparks fly between the two from the start. Noah and Grace as well as "Aggie" are back in this story about love, family, and trust. Together Ben and Sierra find out that loving someone does not weaken them and that trust is just as important as friendship.
The love scenes are hot and steamy but are part of the story not a vehicle to add filler. The side story of Kent and Ben's mother Brooke is also fun to read. This story is just as good as the first story "Too Much Temptation" and brings back some great characters. You won't want to miss this story.
But actually, the hotter (though mostly unseen) relationship is the one between Sierra's friend Kent and Ben's prim and proper mother, Brooke. Man, the heat those two generated - especially Kent's naughty mouth (the things he said to her!) you wanted to see more of them together.
And Ben finally resolves his rocky relationship with his difficult grandmother who was determined to make him accept that he is, indeed a part of her family.
