Mia Appleby finally has the life she always wanted. She's escaped her trailer trash childhood and built a nice life for herself with a marketing job and a cute, little condo. But no matter how much baggage she's ditched from her past, she still hasn't managed to shake her greatest weakness - men. So when her new neighbor turns out to be single and oh-so-sexy, Mia's worried she's playing with fire…
Kevin McKnight can't get enough of his gorgeous neighbor, but after one amazing night, she's already showing him the door. Something tells him this is the way she handles most men. But Kevin is far from your average guy-and he's ready to prove it to Mia. When a blast from her past shakes up Mia's life in a major way, will she stick with her self-sufficient solo act…or take a chance leaning on Kevin's strong shoulders?

"Fall in love with Jill Shalvis. She's my go-to read for humor and heart!" (Susan Mallery, New York Times bestselling author)
Right from the start this book rubbed me the wrong way. It went on and on about her "trailer trash" upbringing. It got down right offensive. Oh the horror of having to grow up with fake wood paneling.
But even if you could overlook that, you are still left with the over the top "man eater" type character who prefers one night stands to chocolate cake.
I tried really hard to listen. Normally I love Jill Shalvis books, especially the Lucky Harbor series but this one is so over the top it made my stomach turn. By chapter 3 I realized that my time is far to valuable and I like myself to much to continue to put myself through listening to one more minute of this offensive crap. And really I know that sounds harsh but it really was crap.
An audiobook needs a good narrator. This one lacks something. It's hard to tell the mood of the characters when she doesn't change her tone. I would have enjoyed this story so much more with a better narrator.
