seriously romantic: tempting her neighbor by laura jardine

in this short and sexy novel, grumpy-old-man-before-his-time, cole sampson moves in next to just-wants-to-have-fun-with-no-strings, rachel malone. cole isn't good with people, so he's taken aback by rachel's matter-of-fact come-ons. she is very clear she wants to have sex with him. he's just not sure why. he doesn't like other people generally. it's why he's moved to this town in the middle of nowhere canada. and given that there are only about 30 other people in this town it seems wrong to sleep with his neighbor who he will be unable to avoid should things end badly.

but rachel is persistent. she's slept with most of the available guys in greenville. she wants someone new who won't judge her based on town gossip. she knows cole is attracted to her, she just needs him to take a leap. and when they have a hot encounter in the woods she's a little hurt to realize that maybe there's no getting around her reputation as town slut after all.

but cole isn't good with words and people and rachel is so hot and sexy and she wants him for some reason. and how is he going to keep saying no when all he wants to do is say yes. and when rachel realizes that cole will never judge her or find her wanting for expressing what she truly desires, it's as if he sets her free. things get pretty racy.

both cole and rachel have to deal with some emotional baggage that fuels their commitment issues. but for once it's the guy who realizes first that what they share is worth making compromises for and that it is possible for them to find a way to make things work. this all moves at a fast clip, but nothing is given short shrift. and if you are looking for a short and sexy read, tempting her neighbor should definitely make your tbr list.

**tempting her neighbor will publish on may 1, 2017. i received an advanced reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangled publishing (scorched) in exchange for my honest review.
