A movie star moves next door. A disabled veteran minds his own business watching a rather loud *ahem* movie in his bedroom. What happens when she gets fed up with the noise by breaking into his place only to discover him in his birthday suit?
Hi. I’m Niki Sargeant. The actress mentioned above. No, that’s not a movie pitch I plan to show producers. It’s my life.
I recently became Hollywood’s it-girl and moved into a swanky condo. When I hear a woman screaming rather loudly from my new neighbor’s home, I’m concerned. Breaking into his condo seems like a good idea at the time, at least that’s what my friends tell me. I realize it’s a mistake once he appears in the living room with no clothes on.
Yet, I can’t keep my eyes off him.
Did Niki say she broke into my place over concern about a woman screaming? Let me tell you the truth.
I’m Tucker Six, former Marine, the current head of a tech firm, and a mysterious loner. Maybe not a loner or mysterious but I am where it counts.
Wait, that didn’t come out right. Let’s start over.
There is only one reason Niki broke into my home, my body. I won’t lie. I’m cut and the coolest person within a five-mile radius. I can’t blame Niki for wanting me. But I have a problem.
She obviously wants me for my body but I wanted her heart.
This book was hilarious from start to finish and I pretty much laughed the entire time I was reading. There's no denying there's plenty of chemistry between Tucker and Niki, but there are a couple of obstacles that could prevent them from a HEA. Tucker's housewarming gift to Niki was hilarious, but also a bit cringey at the same time, especially if she was easily someone who could be easily offended. They've both got issues from their pasts that have left them hesitant when it comes to feelings and emotions, especially Tucker, and I was surprised by who, in a nutshell, told him about the self-sabotage and how to get himself together. Even more surprising was the results after that discussion. Niki's ex managed to stir up some drama and potential controversy, but it wasn't addressed as to why he chose to do what he did so that left me a bit confused about his overall role in the story, but it was still an entertaining read and I'm looking forward to reading Emmie's story next.
Elizabeth Lynx writes romcoms with a lot of steam and characters you'll be mad aren't actually real. She has worn many hats in life: mother, wife, photographer, graphic designer, executive assistant, and used to print pictures for the White House. For the past several years, she's decided to put down on paper all the crazy voices in her head. Surprisingly, those voices did some really naughty things.
