Marissa Melrose is in for the battle of a lifetime.
Rule #9: No sex with the landlord.
Subleasing my best friend’s Bay Area apartment came at the perfect time – an easy way to escape memories of a broken engagement and start fresh. She promised the list of outrageous rules I agreed to were nothing to worry about.
Then the elusive landlord appeared next door and everything changed. Hotter than hell soccer superstar, Ryland Bates. He turns me on with his muscles and take charge attitude. Too bad every time he opens his mouth I want to shove the list of rules down his throat.
Aspen ran off with her prince charming and left me to slay the dragon.
What am I supposed to do when he starts breathing fire and sets me ablaze?
It’s time to break a few rules.

Will she follow his Ten Commandments?
Marissa, 25, had broken up with her cheating fiancé and moved to an apartment where her landlord had a list of 10 commandments for the apartment. Ryland/Ry, 28, owns the apartment off his penthouse and he was just fired from his soccer team in England. The rules are crazy and Marissa and her friends laugh about them but Rylan leaves post-it notes for her when she breaks a commandment. However, when she falls at work and badly sprains her ankle he is right there to help her in any way he can. She realizes not only is he handsome and well built but he is also patient, kind, considerate, with family issues. They grow closer playing a video game but Marissa realizes he will be leaving again to return to soccer. Will their relationship develop into more than just friendship? Can Marissa and Ryland ind happiness together?
I thoroughly loved this story and highly recommend it. A Grind Offense apparently requires lots of repetitive action to move forward and in this story it is Ryland working hard to win Marissa. The author did a fantastic job developing the characters and showing their internal conflicts. Ryland had a difficult career decision to make that would ultimately effect both of them. I loved the humor and sarcasm in the book as well as the romance and friendships. The epilogue was a great ending.
