From the Author
"Concentrate on your Pranayama breathing." Yeah, you concentrate on that while trying to hold this pose. Five years and I can't do a handstand pose without losing my balance.
Still, like I always do, I try my best and continue with the flow.
"Downward facing dog," says the instructor.
"F**, that's my limit. You can't do that," I hear a very annoying male voice.
"Excuse me?" I ask, straightening up and walking toward Miller's balcony, who is almost jumping the short wall that divides our balconies. "I can do whatever I want."
"Yeah, but not here. I am trying to relax after a long day and what do I see? Your sweet, round ass pointing at me. Tempting me."
He's got to be kidding me.
"You're unbelievable," I try to keep my tone low, but this man is just pushing my limits, and it's only my second day back in town.
"Honest," he corrects me. "I'm nothing but honest."
"Shall we replay what just happened here?" he asks and proceeds to recount his version of the events.
"I came outside to relax, read a book, and drink." He lifts a tumbler containing some amber liquid. "Suddenly, you come outside disturbing the peace by blaring Enya and that squeaky woman ordering you to breathe while keeping your butt down and your tummy tucked in close to your spine. I didn't say anything but, Clarice, you are flaunting that sweet ass I love, and I have my limits."
I hate he's using that soft-low tone that turns me on.
But I hate it more that the view has my fingers itching to touch him. He's only wearing a pair of jeans, and I can't help but stare at his bare, muscular torso. Rock-hard abs, just like I remember them. His corded arms have a few new tattoos, and what do you know, my body is reacting to his perfect body.
The craving disappears when I remember he's the enemy and he's taken.
"Does your girlfriend know you stalk me?"
The corner of his lip stretches, and he crosses his arms."My girlfriend?"
"Danielle mentioned you have one."
He nods. "I'm pretty sure this girlfriend you're talking about wouldn't mind if I'm watching you."
"Well, I mind that you're stalking me," I grunt, he makes no sense. "Can you just leave me alone?"
"You came to me," he says. "I've lived here for more than a year. Also, this is a free country. You're the one who, as I explained earlier, disturbed my peaceful night. I'm in my apartment,minding my own business. Suddenly, you're flaunting that gorgeous body,blocking my view and--distracting me."
And now, I'm the one distracted by him and those sexy bedroom eyes. Just one night. If we could do it for one last time, the craving will go away. I lick my lips, and his smug smile reminds me why we shouldn't be together.
"I didn't come to you," I argue.

I both liked and disliked Miles at times. The whole thing with their big breakup was just weird and didn’t make a lot of sense. It just felt like the author forced this breakup for the drama, but it didn’t feel in character with the Miles that Claire and the readers knew. Why would he refuse to listen to her? And then have sex with her, and immediately go to thinking she was all about money, andTHEN expect her to be fine with losing a promotion, and possibly be placed on probation? It was really illogical and immature. He did seem to learn from his mistake, but he was still a bit all over the place. Mainly, he kept thinking Claire was difficult to work with even after she moved back to Denver, and it took him quite a long time to acknowledge that he had hurt Claire. He knew he lost her, but he didn’t seem to realize that what he did actually hurt her. I ended up rooting for them more because it was what Claire wanted, rather than just wanting them to be together.
Next, there were too many characters in the book, which got pretty confusing, and most were inconsistent. Mrs. Archer went from being wise and pretty great (though meddling), to judgy and controlling. Miles’ partner was pretty much a clueless jerk, who didn’t seem to value his “superstar” even though he’d been singing her praises for years. The friends Claire went on vacation with really didn’t appear after the first chapter and could’ve been left out entirely. Claire’s boss at the New York office seemed very smart and supportive and caring of her employees; then turned cold and overbearing. The whole thing with the vineyard client was odd and seemed like it was just for the drama to force Claire to spend time with Miles again, and provide a reason for Claire’s partners to get strangely upset about it. I liked Claire’s family, and her assistant, but most of the others were unnecessary.
Finally, I was happy to have a book set primarily in Denver, as I’ve lived in Colorado most of my life; but for the most part, it was just a setting that could have been anywhere. There wasn’t a whole lot of local flavor.
Overall, it was good book, and worth reading (mainly because of Claire), but needs work on character consistency.
I also really loved their families, especially Claire's brother Thomas! He made we wish that I had a big brother of my own, one who would always have my back and who would be willing to beat the crap out of anyone who hurt me. I would love to see Thomas get a story of his own.
This was my first read from Claudia Burgoa and I truly enjoyed it. I like her writing style and loved the characters that she introduced me to. I am looking forward to reading more of her stories
I read the original novella in the Spring Fling anthology and love that we get a deeper story with Something Like Hate. This book made me laugh and want to strangle Miller all at the same time. This was a fun, easy read. Looking forward to reading more by this author.
*This book would have gotten five stars, but there are several typographical errors and editorial oversights.
