She burned his house down, so he lit a fire between them that she could never extinguish.
So, I burned his house down.
It was an accident.
I mean, technically, the dog did it.
Well, the dog helped me to do it.
Did I mention it was an accident?
When circumstances mean I suddenly have a new housemate,
A man who is my ultimate fantasy,
And my entire world is turned upside down by new friends,
And a dog who likes to get me into trouble,
I have to wonder how my life got so crazy.
Add in my neighbor, who is under investigation;
Some unfinished business from the past, which just won’t go away;
Interfering family, who don’t know when to stop;
And mixed signals, making me wonder if fantasies really can come true,
And you have my new, hectic, crazy life.
But, when things take a dangerous turn,
And lives are on the line,
Will we all make it through in one piece?
Or is everything destined to crumble down around us?
Who would have thought that burning down a house would change everything so much?
Then again, as some people say: there is nothing quite like love at first … crime.
I thought this was a fairly decent story, although I struggled to see the love connection between Teagan and Joey. They've been neighbors for over six months, long enough for Teagan to lend him a hand with his dog when needed, yet when the house is no more and she contacts him to let him know, he doesn't know her? I guess that's what happens when you're a manwhore (which I'm over that gimmick btw). I think that's why I struggled to see the romantic connection between them, because how can I buy a relationship with them if he didn't even know her name, yet not too long after he's suddenly into her? Other than that, the writing was decent and the plot moved at a good pace; I liked that we get good secondary characters and I although this book wasn't my favorite from the series, I can't wait to get to Harvey's story.
