Arden Lennox’s charmed life may be in pieces, but she’d sooner get her hoohaw bleached than move back in with her parents. She’s no longer the prom-queen princess married to the football star. She’s a broke, penniless widow, and it’s time she stood on her own two feet.An under-construction unit in a quaint Chicago brownstone is cheap (free), but it comes with an unexpected surprise. Tyler Ramirez, her brother’s gawky high school best friend, is now a smoking hot firefighter who spends most of his spare time in her unit hammering, drilling, and screwing. Usually with his shirt off—a temptation she has no intention of indulging.
Tyler can’t believe his high school crush is living right across the hall, or how fast his fierce lust for her comes blazing back. She’s still gorgeous—a little sadder, a little quieter, but still with the amazing smile and sweet body that fueled his awkward teenage fantasies.
Despite her best intentions, Arden can’t resist grown up Tyler but the sparks between them send her into full retreat. And by the time she realizes the heat between them could last a lifetime, it could be too late to tell him…
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
When Arden’s husband commits suicide, her world is shattered. She’s carrying a lot of guilt and baggage when she moves into the building her little brother is renovating to start over. So the last thing she expects is to fall for her brother’s best friend, Tyler, who lives across the hall.
There’s a ton of chemistry between the two of them right off the bat. Tyler has been carrying a torch for Arden since they were kids, and he is such a sweetheart as he goes out of his way to make her see him as something more than just her little brother’s best friend. He’s a swoony, sexy firefighter, and the sparks fly between them.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
