Bad Idea #241: Sending a dirty text to your number neighbor.
In my defense, my friends did it too, and their neighbors took it as the joke it was.
He responded with a dirty text of his own. Next thing I know, I have a standing texting date every night at ten-thirty.
Until I have to miss it because the stray kitten who adopted me one week ago is sick. The only person I know who can help me at this time of night is my British next-door neighbor and local vet, Isaac Cooper.
I’ll keep him overnight, he says. Here’s my number to call me in the morning, he says.
I know that number.
Because I’ve been texting it every night for the last four days.

Just What I Needed
What a coincidence...who would've thought that the faceless person that Hannah spent a night of naughty texting with would turn out to be much closer than she thought? Yep, talk about an OMG moment. Looking her next door neighbor in the eye just got a lot more awkward. But this is pure Emma Hart, and, with all of the very serious things going on in real time, NUMBER NEIGHBORS is just the sort of fun sexy read that I needed.
Hannah and Isaac are both immediately likable. They're smart, snarky, sexy, and just the right type for each other. Does it take a hot minute for them to realize this? Yes, but once they start letting their guards down and go with what's happening, it doesn't take long. Isaac and Hannah have great chemistry, both in and out of the bedroom, which is important for me in a book. I like that they have common interests, and that there's more to them than just the physical.
Emma continues to write rom-com gold, and she has broken the mold with Grandma Jen and her girl gang. Seriously, these ladies are a force to be reckoned with, but I think that we all want to be at least a little bit like them when we grow up... ❤️
Review: Number Neighbors
Number Neighbors by Emma Hart is another heart-warming rom-com from one of my favorite authors. A sexy texting incident between strangers turns into much more when they realize that they are not anonymous sexters but are in fact next-door neighbors. Queue the awkwardness!!! But things turn out well. Isaac handles Grandma Jen with an enviable ease, is a wonderful vet with a skill for taking care of Hannah's kitten (from hell) Lucifer, and comes complete with wonderfully sexy British accent to boot. Hannah manages to overcome her own awkwardness and issues with knowing the man she was sexting is her hot neighbor she barely knows and manages to get out of her own way and let the relationship with Isaac blossom. Loved it! A flawless feel-good read, especially now with the world in turmoil and isolation. Enjoy!
Beware of the ankle biter
Sexting with a complete stranger? Hannah’s never dreamt of such a thing. Texting a complete stranger was enough of a twist to her normal everyday life. Her friends put her up to it. Hannah is actually pretty reserved compared to most in her group. Texting her number neighbor is the most adventurous thing she’s done in forever. Thank goodness she’ll prob never meet this person, right? Famous last words....until she discovers who it is.
Isaac has lived next door to Hannah for a while. They converse every once in a while on the way to the mailbox or taking the trash out. He’s never had the nerve to ask her out. He’s actually quite surprised when she comes over late one night worried about her “not hers” kitten that she rescued. This will be the snowball that starts the avalanche.
I could not have loved this story any more. A sexy Brit and the sweet girl next door. Their story was one that unfolded perfectly. Not only did these two have chemistry, but they were able to be themselves, cherry underwear and all. Plus, Grandma Jen and Lucifer. This is one of those stories that I need more of. I also love seeing the little bits of Emma Hart in this story.
