Release Date: 2002

Goodreads Synopsis:

In the wonderfully erotic bestseller, Too Much Temptation, readers fell in love with two brothers -- dark, sexy Noah, and his roguish, younger brother, Ben -- as Noah followed his heart's desire. Now, acclaimed author Lori Foster returns to their world, this time exploring the sensual longings, secret wounds, and hidden needs of irresistible Ben Badwin, a man for whom there is never too much of a good thing...

He Wanted Her Completely

A confirmed bachelor, Ben Badwin has had his share of women, and he likes them as sexy, wild, and uninhibited as his desires. Nothing at all like the brash, dirt-covered, wholesomely cute woman who just strutted into his diner for a cold drink. But something about Sierra Murphy's independent attitude makes Ben fantasies run wild. He'd love nothing more than to dazzle her with his prized sensual make her want him as badly as he suddenly wants her...

Sierra has her own plans -- and they don't include getting involved with a notorious Romeo. Fiercely independent, with her own landscaping business to run, she makes it perfectly clear that she doesn't need a man to help her, not even one as sinfully tempting as Ben. But the more Sierra keeps her distance, the more Ben wants her. And the more Ben wants her, the harder it is for Sierra to steer clear of his teasing touches and enticing eyes. To get him into her bed -- and out of her system -- Sierra makes him a proposition: she'll sleep with him, but for one night only. Now, it's up to Ben to turn one night of pure ecstasy into a lifetime of passion...

The Cover:

The cover above doesn't do anything for me. It doesn't catch my attention, it's not particularly nice to look at... It's some vegetables, not even really appetizing ones.
There's this cover, which is okay. The close up of the guy doesn't really do anything for me, either, nor does it really do anything for the book. It looks more cheesy lifetime movie than anything else, which isn't particularly good.
The cover Barnes and Noble has is probably the best of the three; it shows a stereotypical built guy, yea, but it looks pretty nice, and I can even imagine that the model is Ben, which helps.


This was a cute, hot story, but it doesn’t really stand out in my head.
I liked Sierra a lot, she’s feisty, trying to live on her own and protect the people around her, not wanting to fall in love. Ben is insistent, and loyal, and a sweetheart. Their attraction is instant, but it worked for me. They were very good together, hot and sweet, and I liked them.
There was also Sierra’s friend Kent, who was good to Sierra, and who liked Ben’s mother. Their relationship got some attention, and I liked how Kent was with her, and how good that was. Ben’s Grandmother showed up a few times, and I liked her, especially at the end.
This was a very sweet, hot, easy read. I enjoyed it.
