And now my world is turned upside down.
Apparently, you're not supposed to fall for the rebound guy.
Guess I didn't get the memo, because the first man I jump into bed with happens to be the one who sparks a flame in my heart.
With his rakish charm and Irish accent, he steals my sanity and inhibitions.
It's not long before I'm dreaming of something more than a quick fling.
There's just one problem:
Griffin Gallagher happens to be the one man my brother despises.
My new neighbor ticks all the right boxes.
Tall – check.
Muscular – check.
Tatted – double check.
Until he opens his mouth.
Adam is grumpy, rude, and obnoxious as hell.
He’s the kind of guy who deserves double fisted middle fingers.
And I really should tell him exactly where he can shove his insults.
Instead, I bite my tongue.
He intrigues me and I can’t fight the need I have to find out what caused the pain so evident in his dark eyes.
Soon the thick hungry flames surrounding Adam consume me.
I should’ve known better.
Because when you play with fire, you’re bound to get burned.
Everyone has that one person who makes their skin crawl with irritation.
When you see them, you just want to high five them… in the face.
For me, that's Gage Calloway.
Everyone else might think he’s Mr. Wonderful, but I know better.
And if I never have to set eyes on him again, it would be too soon.
Unfortunately, the universe likes to torment me.
When my bakery catches fire, he is the one to pull me out.
And when my little kitchen needs rebuilding? One guess who's assigned to do that job?
Yup, Gage freaking Calloway.
I have no idea how I am going to get through the next few months of having him in my space all the time.
Especially when my heart doesn't hate him at all.
