When Grace Emerson's ex-fiancé starts dating her younger sister, extreme measures are called for. To keep everyone from obsessing about her love life, Grace announces that she's seeing someone. Someone wonderful. Someone handsome. Someone completely made up. Who is this Mr. Right? Someone...exactly unlike her renegade neighbor, Callahan O'Shea. Well, someone with his looks, maybe. His hot body. His knife-sharp sense of humor. His smarts and big heart.

Whoa. No. Callahan O'Shea is not her perfect man! Not with his unsavory past. So why does Mr. Wrong feel so...right?


Grace Emerson was tired of everyone telling her to hold her chin up and her time would come for a wedding too. What makes matters worse, her sister is hinting at breaking up with Grace's ex-fiancé because she doesn't want Grace to still hurt whenever she sees them together. So instead of promising her sister that everything is alright and it takes time to heal, she spurts out that she is seeing someone. There's only one problem with that, it's a complete lie.

A little tipsy from her cousin's wedding, she happens to see what looks like someone trying to break into the house next door. After calling the cops, she grabs her old field hockey stick when she hears a knock on the door. Expecting it to be the cops she saw park next door, she finds the man who was sneaking around. Before she even realizes what she is doing, she is beating said perpetrator with her trusty ol' field hockey stick.

Finding out her sexy as hell neighbor was not trying to break in but actually just bought the property, she can't help but feel bad for her hasty actions. The next morning she goes to apologize with brownies and ends up accidentally hitting him with his rake. I'm pretty sure her neighbor, Callahan, thinks he's glutton for punishment whenever he is around her.

Throw in a couple more accidents and some time together, you get a fun romance tale with some spicy sexual tension, and you have a great story. I think I have fallen in love with Kristan Higgins' writing style. It's not often you see humor throughout a book. A refreshing read that makes me want to snap up the rest of her novels!


Humorous, sexy, and entrancing
The sexual tension was thrilling. What would have made it much better would be details of their rendezvous. :)
