Sure, it might not be completely unfair to call Michael Anderson a "control freak". It's helped him in business—he's the CEO of Anderson Enterprises, after all. But he's trying to learn to let loose just a tiny bit. Still, he's not quite sure why his therapist thinks dogsitting will fix anything? Especially since Michael and this particular canine share a kind of mutual loathing. To make matters worse, his new next door neighbor keeps disrupting his peace—and his dates—by blasting the worst possible music at the worst possible times.
Artist and free spirit Mia Argaropolis just landed the perfect gig to complement her career as an art therapist and her preference for living a nomadic life: housesitting in the Upper West Side. Too bad the guy next door is an arrogant stick in the mud with a penchant for calling security whenever she tries to drown out the noises coming from his side of the wall.
Suddenly, all in one day, Mia finds herself fighting for survival in unbearable situations. First, her dinner rolls go apocalyptic and try to take out the whole kitchen. Then her douchebag ex shows up out of the blue, her bathtub overflows, and she's attacked by a Shih Tzu with the personality of Godzilla. When Mia's uptight neighbor steps in as her unlikely hero and unplanned fiancé (wait, what?), she's not sure how much stranger this day could get.

Just Being Neighborly
Michael Anderson is a man who likes his comforts. One of them is in his own home. Some call him CEO, some call him a control freak. He meets Mia Argaropolis when she starts house sitting next door and starts a fire. He runs in and rescues her.
Mia is so embarrassed. She is known as flighty and a flake simply because she allows it. Michael makes her feel even more inferior and of course, angry. She can relate to Clancy the dog - better than he can - and it has them strike a deal.
Michael over hears her ex-boyfriend putting her down. He says some really nasty things until Michael tells him Mia is his lady and fiance. Now they have to pretend to like one another and know each other well.
Mia and Michael start spending time together. Their deal includes room and board, so Mia moves in. The attraction spikes and sparks are flying! How can a girl resist such a man? Can he resist her charm?
I found the banter to be very funny. I liked the characters and the honesty between them. The sexy times were sizzling and this is a truly fun read.
