“Red-hot and funny . . . A sexy, sweet treat . . . Readers will find this an incredibly rewarding journey.” —Publishers Weekly
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. Her best friends have arranged a job and a house for her, and 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?
Praise for Jennifer Dawson’s As Good as New
“Dawson captures the small romantic moments that make a relationship work.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Dawson doesn’t disappoint with the fourth sizzling addition to her A Something New series . . . Readers will fly through Dawson’s latest sexy and fun novel.” —Booklist
Dawson's red-hot and funny fifth Something New contemporary (after As Good as New) is a sexy, sweet treat. After a career scandal upends the plans of driven Chicago executive Sophie Kincaid, she accepts a short-term consulting gig in tiny Revival, Ill., where one of her best friends lives. Wary after being raised by parents who cared more for each other than for her, Sophie's most emphatically not looking for love, especially in a town without a Starbucks or takeout food. However, she falls for hunky cop Ryder Moore, her new and very sexy next door neighbor. His idyllic childhood leaves him unable to believe that his new neighbor can't see her own worth. Explosive chemistry crackles between the two, and while they pay lip service to just having fun, it's obvious to readers that they're heading for forever; all the obstacles in their way are insubstantial. Readers will find this an incredibly rewarding journey, and visiting past Something New couples is a treat.
