He's hot, blue-eyed and butt naked.

Did I mention he's naked? And I've never seen the guy before in my life! So WHY is he doing the backstroke in my neighbor's pool?

Myles Bellamy may be a walking wet dream, but turns out he's got the temperament of a bull shark. And yet every time I clash with the new next-door Neanderthal, I find myself fantasizing about all the dirty things he could do to me. Really dumb on my part, considering the timing...

She's certifiably nuts.

I'm not kidding. That chick is wonkier than Willy’s chocolate factory. Between her head-banging music, smoke alarms going off during séances and the dog I'm pretty sure she trained to crap on my lawn, I'm about ready to give Leah Whitfield a piece of my mind. Or better yet, a piece of me. Because every time I catch her sunbathing in that barely-there bikini, my resolve turns to dust.

And her excuse for turning me down? Her birthday's coming up. According to Leah's weird and warped logic, that day is supposedly cursed.

See what I mean? I can't even...

MY REVIEW

This was the 100th book I've read for the year 2017 and it was bloody magnificent!! This was one of the funniest and sexiest books I have EVER read. It's definitely made it to my Best of 2017 pile and I can't wait to add the paperback to my bookshelves.

Leah and Myles, individually, were hilarious. Put these two characters together and they were hysterical. I choked so many times so please don't drink anything while reading this! I couldn't stop laughing. There were so many times I had to re-read parts because I was busy laughing and missed the point! If I wasn't laughing I was swooning over Myles or fanning myself over their intimate moments. *wink*

BREAKING THE SEVENTH was basically about two people who were absolutely fine on their own but were amazingly terrific together. The title itself refers to Leah's birthday (July 7th) and the many awful birthdays (what she views as a curse) she's endured and her 24th one is coming up. Although it touches on serious issues, such as abandonment, overall it was a surprisingly light read. I did say it was funny, right? Well-written and delightfully entertaining, I was sad to see this story come to an end. However, I'm happy that I took a chance on an author that is new to me and that it paid off so well. Allie Gail's got a new fan right here!!
