Love comes along when it’s least wanted

Jason Guthrie has no time for entanglements—between helping out his widowed brother and teenage nephew and getting his hometown back on its feet, his days are spoken for. But his nights are another story… And when his lovely new neighbor, Honor Brown, reluctantly accepts his help in remodeling her house, Jason finds himself wishing his handyman skills could knock down the defenses she keeps building around herself.

Martial arts teacher Sullivan Dean knows real danger when he sees it—even when it takes the form of the gorgeous blonde helping her friend move in across the street. After putting his wayward past behind him to focus on teaching control to troubled kids, Sullivan has learned to avoid party girls like Lexie Perkins. But Sullivan can’t seem to keep his hands off the real woman behind that flirty charm—or keep his heart from landing at her feet…

Excerpt

Proud of herself for coming up with such a great scheme, Lexie arrived a few minutes before Honor should be there. AS soon as she pulled up, she spotted Jason in the garage, hammering away on something that looked like a small house.
                Perfect.
                Honor deserved a nice but hunky guy, someone to pay attention to her, lighten her load a little and make her feel as special as Lexie knew her to be. Jason, with his simmering gaze and hot bod, seemed like a great candidate. From what Lexie had seen so far, the chemistry was strong. Enough sparks had bounced between them to start a forest fire.
                With the top up on her convertible, she circled to the back passenger door. When she opened it, the stems of the large bird-of-paradise plant flopped out. Getting the thing in there had taken two men from the garden center and some creative stuffing.
                Pushing her sunglasses to the top of her head, Lexie put on her best helpless face, glanced around, then zeroed in on Jason—willing him to look up.
                “Excuse me.”
                Startled, she followed the sound of that smooth, deep voice and found herself staring into incredible cobalt-blue eyes…
                …in a stop-your-heart handsome face.
                …with an oh-my-God physique.
                Done with her up, down and sideways analysis of his fine self, she smiled. “Hi there.”
                Dressed in loose athletic pants, running shoes and a snugfitting T-shirt, he asked, “Did you need some help?”
                She needed all kinds of things…
                He nodded to the plant.
                Forgetting all about Jason and her plan, Lexie quickly agreed. “Yes. Please. Thank you.”
                His polite expression never faltered—unlike her pulse.
                Inhaling, Lexie looked him over again. Straight black hair, neatly trimmed but not overly styled. A firm mouth, strong jaw and those incendiary eyes. A lean, tall, finely honed body. “Where did you come from?”
                “I live across the street.”
                He could’ve said heaven and she would have believed him.
                Wearing a quizzical frown, he glanced at Honor’s house. “I take it you’re my new neighbor?”
                Oh, she wished. It’d be worth giving up her very nice downtown apartment overlooking the river. The views around Honor’s house were definitely better.
                “My best friend is, actually.” Belatedly she held out a hand. “I’m Lexie Perkins.”
                “Sullivan Dean.” He carefully took her hand, his touch gentle and somehow more familiar because of it. “It’s nice to meet you, Lexie.”
                Liking the sound of her name on his lips, she tried to hold on to him, but other than a long look, he didn’t play along. Bummer.
                From behind her, Jason said, “Hey, Lexie.”
                She turned—and couldn’t help looking Jason over, too. Honor had struck gold with her location.
                And to think she’d once considered the neighborhood old and stuffy.

5- STAR Review

"More than ever, she was determined to do it all on her own. In the process she'd be nice to her caring, helpful, gorgeous neighbor--and she'd absolutely prove him wrong."

What a great story!!!

I love when an author takes two different couples (with two different story lines) and brings them together in one awesome book!

Honor Brown is determined to start a new life in a new town. Her life has never been perfect, but she can't let anything bring her down.
 So when she arrives at her new home, she never imagined that her new neighbors would change her life forever. Especially the brooding, messy-haired, non shirt wearing Jason.

"Because with every day, it seemed more likely that being mere friendly neighbors just wasn't going to cut it. He wanted more. But how much more?"

Jason, his brother Hogan, and Hogan's son, Colt, didn't know what hit them when Honor came into the neighborhood. She might have looked naive, but she was far from it.
She was the firecracker that these bachelors needed!

Each of these characters needed each other in different ways and I liked learning more about them as the story unfolded.

"I like looking at you, honey. Every part of you. You're perfect."
"No, I'm not. I have more flaws than I can count."
"You're perfectly flawed, then, and every part of you is sexy."
"I'm glad you think so."

Not only did you get to see Honor, Jason, Hogan, and Colt's story, but you also met Honor's crazy best friend, Lexie, and new neighbor, Sullivan.

From the moment Lexie and Sullivan met, there was chemistry that neither saw coming. Both had sides that they rarely showed anyone, and it took the other one to bring it out front.

"She got the feeling that not much scared Sullivan Dean. She wanted to know more about him, his background, what made him tick."

I loved Lexie's sassiness and Sullivan brooding ways. They were a hodge podge of perfectly imperfect people. As I read through the book, I found myself wanting so much more of their story because I became immersed into their side of the it!!

"She crawled into his heart without even trying, and every day the ways that she affected him grew stronger."

Although Honor and Jason did steal the show for me;)
There's just something about a man who works with his hands...just saying.

I absolutely loved every part of this book!!!

You had laughter, love, suspense, drama, and emotional moments that pulled at your heartstrings. Everything you like in a story!

Lori Foster never ceases to amazing me!!

"You and me."
"Together."



"It's lust at first sight and a double romance in this new novel of neighbors helping neighbors by the prolific Foster"—Kirkus
