I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Country and city, strapping and petite these new neighbors have literally nothing in common. Are the fireworks crackling between them pure irritation or something a whole lot hotter?
With her professional reputation in tatters and her boss in jail Sophie Kincaid has no choice but to move to small-town Revival, Illinois, until the dust settles, where her best friends have arranged a job and a house for her. For six months, she s pretty sure she can handle anything even her new landlord and neighbor, Ryder Moore. A magnetic 6 4 deputy sheriff, Ryder s good looks and habit of flirting with intent to seduce are an infuriating distraction and, to Sophie s alarm, an undeniable temptation.
Ryder knows Sophie s type entitled city girl and it s not one of his favorites. Add in her snarky sass and her propensity for trouble and she s not exactly his ideal tenant. But something about the curvy little blonde fires Ryder s imagination, not to mention his desire. Soon enough their verbal sparring seems like a prelude to something much more physical and far more pleasurable. Is love right around the corner or just right next door?
So I’ll be honest. I haven’t read any of the other books in this series but I didn’t need to. Yes there are other characters who obviously have stories told previously but it doesn’t hinder your understanding. All it did was make me really want to marathon this series and find out all about the others!
Sophie is trying to get her head around being stuck in a small town for 6 months after being driven out of Chicago by scandal. She just wants to keep her head down and get her job done. She doesn’t need a distraction. But that’s exactly what she finds in her neighbour and landlord, Ryder. I loved Ryder. Tall, dark, handsome and cheeky. The banter between Ryder and Sophie is great and I loved watching their relationship develop. Sophie knows she has to keep her distance. She’s fallen for the bad boy before and it ended in tears. She won’t let that happen to her again.
Ryder knows he should leave Sophie alone. She is all kinds of trouble and he doesn’t need that in his life anymore. But he just can’t keep away and loves to wind her up. Soon enough the chemistry is too much to deny but can the city girl and small town boy ever have a happy ending? Add to the mix their crazy friends and this is a fun read. If you’re looking for a giggle, with sizzling chemistry and banter definitely give this a go.
