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…


This was such a cute neighbour romance! It was sweet and fluffy with endearing characters.

Honor moves into a new neighbourhood that’s just crawling with good-looking guys, no complaints there right? But of course there’s one particular guy that stands out from the rest. Enter slightly broody Jason from right next door. As soon as he laid his eyes on Honor, he knew she was trouble. Bring on the fireworks!

Honor and Jason are quite the cute pair. After a bit of tension at the start, they get into a pretty good rhythm of being pretty straightforward with each other.

Leaning in close, he teased, “We weren’t doing anything.”

She blinked fast and answered just as quietly, “Of course not.”

“I wanted to.”

The most frustrating part of the story is probably Honor’s crazy desire to be super independent. Like come on girl, they’re your friends who just want to help you out. Stop being so defensive about it. Her big secret also seemed like a silly thing to keep a secret. Thankfully, she does work it out and Jason does a good job of handling it.

There’s lots of side characters that are also pretty awesome. Honor’s best friend Lexie gets her own little romance with across the street neighbour Sullivan. It was cute and I actually do wish we got a little more of it. There’s also Jason’s brother (Hogan), nephew (Colt) and hot neighbour Sheriff Nathan who I all hope get some more story, too!

Overall, a sweet contemporary read with lots of heartwarming moments and even a little suspense. Definitely looking forward to more of this series!

Hogan the blue-eyed dad, Colt the mature-looking son and Jason…the far-too-hot shirtless hunk. As she committed the names to memory, Honor glanced at each of them, but repeatedly got drawn back to Jason.

The sun highlighted the cut of his cheekbones, the straight line of his nose and across those sleek, hard shoulders. Why didn’t he put on a shirt? She couldn’t quite keep her gaze from his chest, noting he had just the right amount of dark chest hair going from one well-defined pec to the other then bisecting his body downward…
It wouldn’t kill the man to pull up his well-worn jeans, either. Being healthy and female and, okay, more than a little sex starved, she automatically tracked the treasure trail leading down his abdomen to inside those low-slung jeans…

“Hogan and Colt live here, too,” Jason said while silently accepting her scrutiny.

Busted again. She cleared her throat and got her eyes to focus back on his face. “I see.” To Hogan, she asked, “You and your wife are in the neighborhood?”

Pushing away from the truck, Hogan said, “Colt’s mother is gone.”

That left her floundering. Did he mean…dead? Should she give condolences?
Or maybe he meant she’d moved away.

“For now,” Hogan continued, “we live with Jason.”

Oh. With him. In the same house.

All three of them—right next door to her.
Saving her from the awkward silence, Lexie took over. “I’m Lexie Perkins, and the new homeowner here is Honor Brown.” Then to Jason, she added, “You’re going to make her faint if you don’t let up.”

“Lexie!” Horrified, Honor felt so much heat in her face it nearly singed her. She’d gag her friend if she didn’t stop with the outrageous behavior.
Jason cocked a brow but didn’t look away.

  1. Thank you so much! ~Jessica, InkSlinger PR

  2. Sounds good! Hers are always so fun. Was this a complete story? It had been marketed as a duology a while back and that had me nervous since it’s often one story broken up into two books :/

    1. It’s a complete story! I suspect there will be some companion #books, but Jason and Honor has their HEA in this book!

  3. Happy Dance! I enjoyed this one too. I love Foster’s books.

    1. o/! Yay! Can’t wait for more!
