Our first meeting as neighbors was screwed from the start.
He was hot. I was naked. And we had no chance in hell at ever being platonic.

I’ll be the first to admit that I live at extremes. After going ten years locked in what felt like a dysfunctional marriage, I’m now decidedly boy-free. In nearly three years I’ve had no boyfriends, no flings, no dates and no sex. For the sake of my dream career, the sacrifice has been easy.

At least it was.

Until he came along.

Lukas Hendricks. He’s rude, gorgeous, arrogant – a stone-carved wall of muscle and distraction. He’s everything I know to avoid but there’s no avoiding your next-door neighbor. Oh yeah. The man now lives three steps from me and to make matters worse, he crashed into my life while I was relaxed in the tub – mortifying to say the least and it went something like this: I was exposed. He looked. He laughed.

And then I locked myself out.

In short, Lukas Hendricks was trouble from the start. And me?

I was – for the first time in years – about to be screwed.

MY REVIEW

I fell for this author’s writing when I read her book, Ex Games. So when I realized that everyone had jumped on the Stella Rhys train, leaving me behind, I knew I had to catch up. So I one-clicked Sweet Spot and I have absolutely no regrets.

Lia Pope has been burned. Badly. Her dream was almost derailed, but she picked herself up, dusted herself off, and crafted her dream anew. Nothing was going to keep her from success. And to make that point stick, she’s kept herself to herself, meaning no partying and NO MEN!! That is until she hears a noise outside her apartment. Off to investigate, she discovers her neighbor’s brother, who is pretty hot and tempting, will be staying for the next month. How will she get any work done with him around?

Lukas has been your typical love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy. He’s not a jerk, he’s just not interested in relationships. He has also been burned. Badly. After clawing his way out of the depths of hell (figuratively, of course), he has no intention of jeopardizing his success or easy life with any complications. But then his apartment is being remodeled and he goes to stay at his sister’s house while she’s out of town. How is he supposed to resist his new insanely sexy neighbor?

If you’re looking for a story with hidden depth, Sweet Spot will give it to you. My heart literally ached when I read Lukas’s back story. It is full of pain and anguish and showed him to be as wonderful a man as he appeared to be. Lia’s story was also full of it’s own sorrow and the way the author explored the history of these characters gave this story its meat. But it’s not all doom and gloom. Primarily it’s light, steamy and romantic. It was fun to see these two people fight a relationship only to find themselves in one without much effort!
