A sexy, swoony falling-for-the-neighbor standalone romance from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lauren Blakely!

Just my luck - my new next-door neighbor is a unicorn.

Yep, the British hottie is clearly a mythical man because - get this - he's a sexy, witty, charming, big-hearted single dad.

Who, wait for it, wants to find Mrs. Right and get hitched.

He’s a once-in-a-blue-moon kind of man, and it’s a darn shame I’m not on the market. If I were, his accent alone would melt me. Add in the fact that he's a veterinarian, and my animal-loving heart would be flip-flopping.

But my heart's on the mend. I'm a single parent like him, and raising my teenage daughter is my top priority. Plus, falling for a guy who shares your property line is a line you shouldn’t cross.

Still, I'm an outgoing gal, so I do the neighborly thing and offer to be his dating insider.

Surely, I can help this small town’s most eligible bachelor ever navigate his way through all the fantastic single ladies eager to make his acquaintance.

What could possibly go wrong in helping the dream guy next door find his one true love?

So I set him up on one date, two dates, three dates -- and I’m about to find out exactly how dangerous my offer is.

In this book, we meet January and Liam. Neighbors who built a friendship based off of being single parents and antagonizing each other.

January knows what she doesn't want. That happens to be a man. She's been there, done that, and has the scars; while Liam wants a mom for his son. When he moves in next door, their little town starts buzzing about who it could be. Luckily for the town, it's a sexy British vet. He is the ultimate eligible bachelor.

Unfortunately for January since she has sworn off men, this means she has a front-row seat to his comings and goings in the romance department. Since she can't join them, she's resigned to helping him find Mrs. Right. While assisting, they both realize that maybe what they want isn't so different after all.

This is a cute, sexy book. I love that all the couples are adults about their feelings and desires. They know they shouldn't but they cannot deny they want to so they do. I love how mature the children are about the whole situation. This book is the epitome of grown and sexy. It's refreshing, sometimes in the romance world, reading about similar situations can leave the reader feeling like the H's are a bit childish in how they handle these situations. You will NOT find that in these books. There is a little angst and that wretched self-denial/punishment thing that adults do sometimes, but you'll also find people going after and getting what they want. It's done so organically though, that you don't think about it until it's over.

Very good read. I definitely recommend this book.
