The girl next door never looked so good...

For Cameron McKenzie, Chloe Dawson has always just been his younger sister Jane’s best friend—a pesky annoyance who followed him around and acted like he hung the moon. It isn’t until Jane’s wedding to her firefighter beau Chris that Chloe reappears in his life…and she isn’t pesky or annoying anymore. In fact, the beautiful Chloe tempts him beyond reason. But Cam knows he’s damaged goods—not nearly good enough for Lone Pine Lake’s resident good girl.

Chloe’s always dreamed of a future with the dark, brooding Cam, and after they share an explosive kiss, she wonders if her dream could be coming true. Cam’s never stuck around his hometown for long, though, so she makes him an offer: one sweet summer romance with no strings attached. This good girl’s ready for an adventure…one that just might end up lasting a lifetime.

Erin: The town’s good girl, a bad boy, and a forbidden romance are all at play in Karen Erickson’s new book, Tempting Cameron. It’s book 2 of her fun and sexy series, Lone Pike Lake. There’s always something so wickedly fun about a sibling’s best friend being off limits that gets me all the time, and it’s no different here.

Chloe Dawson has been friends with Cole McKenzie’s younger sister, Jane, since middle school and her crush on him has lasted almost as long. Cameron finally takes notice of sweet Chloe when both are back for Jane’s wedding but he vows to stay away from her, feeling he’s too dark and damaged for the likes of the adored hometown girl. As you can guess, this doesn’t quite work to plan and he finds himself more and more attracted to her the more she gets under his skin. I liked the way the romance built between these two, even if Cole was a pretty big jerk for most of the book. I always like a broody, gruff guy, but he bordered on too much at times.

This is a nice story with most of the steamy times taking place behind closed doors, but it’s a good follow up to the series. I look forward to seeing what comes next.


Erin is a book addict! She loves books of all kinds, but her favorites are Contemporary Romance or YA (and she reads both boy/boy AND boy/girl, sometimes even girl/girl!) She's been reading since she could hold a book in her hands and doesn't see that changing any time soon. Give her a Coke, kick ass tunes from her favorite playlists, and a book, and she's in reading heaven.

She's a Texan, though she drinks her tea plain and NOT sweet. She loves cheesecake, strawberry limeade's from Sonic and her favorite color is purple. In her books, she loves an HEA, but she never minds if the road is rough to get there, as long as the reward is worth the struggle.
