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?
Tyler is Everly's landlord, and let me tell you she gets to him. Stomping her feet, flaunting her hotness and just generally pissing him off. However, they are totally into each other...they fight it, but it's there.
Tyler is not proud of where he came from like Everly is and he hides it as much as he can. He is going to have to overcome this and work on the whole "you can't go forward till you understand where you've been" kind of thing.
They are kinda forced together when Tyler figures out she can help him with a business deal. This makes him have to deal with her. I love how the author brings everything around and it's funny and romantic but the characters are strong willed but also a little frustrating. It makes for an amazing ride.
I did not read the books in order and am definitely going back for books one & two. I would recommend reading them first since there were a few times I was a little lost. But the author does a great job filling in gaps so you can read this as a standalone.
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.
