Tyler Jacobson has a plan for everything—except how to handle his completely annoying, utterly frustrating, and totally sexy upstairs neighbor. He couldn’t care less if Everly Ribinski thinks he’s equally irritating—until he discovers she’s the only one who can help him land a business deal that will finally make him feel like he’s more than just a guy from the wrong side of the tracks.
Color him shocked when Everly refuses to help, insisting she should have run him over in the parking garage when she had the chance. Harsh. But possibly deserved. Tyler may have spent the last few months reveling in annoying the fiery gallery owner with a dark past, but he’s got secret leverage she can’t refuse.
If only one meeting didn’t turn into a fake date that turned into more. Way more. Like naked and hot as hell more.
The last thing either of them wants is to catch feelings for someone who is so obviously not their type. Good thing that will never happen. Right?
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
It makes me sad to give 3 stars to this book, but I don't feel like I should give it the 4 stars I normally would have. Why? Because of Tyler. He was so focused on forgetting his roots and becoming one of the men with the money whose kids didn't need the scholarship to attend the school he had. I wasn't able to like him to be honest. And I didn't like the way he treated Everly after she tried to defend him. She stood up for him and he said some mean stuff to her. Everly is my poor baby and Tyler is a bad and mean person. Now, I hope you realize why I cannot give a higher rating to this book. I cannot give a good rating to a book where I didn't like the hero.
I enjoyed every mention of his cooking though. The book got a lot of points for the humor it had. Everly was a good heroine and she was also one of the strong points of this book. I liked the rivalry between her and Tyler in the beginning. Honestly, the only sore spot of this book was Tyler, so I think many readers will enjoy this book.
USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.
She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.
Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
