Instead of soaking up the SoCal sunshine while house sitting for my aunt, I’m dealing with a Pomeranian who thinks she’s a pit bull, two half sisters who would happily prune me off the family tree, and him. Vaughn Shaughnessy. Hot model about to go nuclear, dangerously sexy flirt whose perceptive green eyes promise he’s more than just a pretty face. He’s the kind of walking, talking temptation I should avoid, but that’s impossible because he also happens to be my extremely lickable—I mean likeable—neighbor.
He’s turning me into a hot mess.
Thing is, I can’t handle more messes in my life. I’m still trying to come to terms with the monumental ones in my past, and getting involved with Vaughn—even for temporary summer fun—is guaranteed to get messy. I don’t dare risk it, but I’m not sure I can resist…
This fantastic story features Vaughn and Kendall. This sexy, emotional read is full of past mistakes, friendship, love, forgiveness and growth. It’s about realizing what’s REALLY important in life and learning how to deal with it. Vaughn and Kendall are amazing characters, as are his friends and her sisters. The spice factor is off-the-charts and it’s not all about the sex but the sometimes implied intimacy. I totally understand her reasons for not wanting her life put out there for public consumption. What she went through, everything and everyone surrounding the incident was life altering for a lot of people. This included a 17 year old girl who had to learn to live with herself and what she’d done. Her visit home was heartbreaking and I went through a few tissues during that time. Tragic!
This story had great flow and the characters all had terrific personalities. Do I sense a series here? I sure hope so! I would love to find out what happens to Amber, Dixie, Matt and Dylan. I can’t wait to read more by this magnificent writing duo.
