Love comes along when it's least wanted
Jason Guthrie has no time for entanglements—between helping out his widowed brother and teenage nephew and getting his hometown back on its feet, his days are spoken for. But his nights are another story… And when his lovely new neighbor, Honor Brown, reluctantly accepts his help in remodeling her house, Jason finds himself wishing his handyman skills could knock down the defenses she keeps building around herself.
Martial arts teacher Sullivan Dean knows real danger when he sees it—even when it takes the form of the gorgeous blonde helping her friend move in across the street. After putting his wayward past behind him to focus on teaching control to troubled kids, Sullivan has learned to avoid party girls like Lexie Perkins. But Sullivan can't seem to keep his hands off the real woman behind that flirty charm—or keep his heart from landing at her feet…
Best friends find hunky men and everlasting love in Foster's latest charmer. When hairstylist Honor Brown buys a fixer-upper in a rundown neighborhood in the generic small American town of Clearbrook, she discovers that her new neighbor puts the gent in gentrification. Just the sight of Honor as she climbs out of the moving van sends a shiver through Jason Guthrie. Never mind that Honor's best friend, Lexie Perkins, is just as pretty in her own way; his carnal receptors are tuned to Honor's frequency. Even though she's determined to do all the rehab work herself, it turns out Honor can use an occasional hand from Jason sometimes with a hammer, sometimes without. Meanwhile, Lexie starts hooking up with Sullivan Dean, another neighbor. The foursome's road to a double happy ending is paved with Foster's characteristic breezy banter and uncomplicated plot. Her no-fail formula is sure to please her fans.
Sweet love story.
This book is an easy and fast read and a sweet, contemporary romance. It follows two different couples, Honor and Jason, and Lexie and Sullivan. I didn't mind that, but I did feel that the telling of Lexie and Sullivan's relationship started off strong, but then was kind of forgotten. We weren't privy to all the details of their relationship.
The book focuses more on Honor and Jason. And while I enjoyed the romance between Honor and Jason, I found some of the dialogue and conversations a little unbelievable. But overall, I did enjoy the book and the underlying messages. I also loved the secondary characters, especially Hogan and Colt
The potential is there but I thought it was boring and couldn't finish it. The whole book was one pace. Slow and repetitive. Wish I could get my money back.
Great new series
Great new batch of characters. More rom com than action in this one. The heroine really pills you in and you can't help but love her!!!
