That quote. That quote right there pretty much sums up how I feel about the tempted neighbor in Tempting Her Neighbor. Cole was super grumpy—one of the grumpiest heroes I've come across—and it was refreshing. As was his not-giant height, his excellent and sexy AF dirty talk and openness, and general regular-guy appeal. How can you NOT fall for that?
TBH, this book was actually rather refreshing all around. I took some time to warm up to Rachel, but I loved that she had a 'reputation', that she owned her sexuality. It felt like a little role reversal, and I was 100% on board for that. Plus, she grew on me as the book progressed and her relationship with Cole warmed up. And, as an added bonus, she had this a-ha moment which turned it around from where's the communication? to thank goodness we aren't in high school anymore. All good stuff.
With some surprising (and welcome) kink, what Tempting Her Neighbor lacked in length—it was a quick and dirty read—it made up for in a cute small-town setting and a no-nonsense sex-turned-love story. While I wish there'd been a little more in the end, I closed this book feeling pretty good about this new-to-me author and series, and more than willing to head back to Georgeville in the future.
“Rude men are hot.”
“Says the woman with the sweet fiancé.”
“I’m not saying you should get engaged to a man like that. But for sex? Totally hot.”
~ FOUR STARS ~
It’s refreshing to read a story with a female character who loves sex. Unfortunately it’s given her that stereotypical reputation as being ‘easy’ in this small town where everyone talks. Yes, she’s slept with most of the males of her age, and she has a current friends-with-benefits relationship with a man she trusts. She doesn’t let what other people say bother her, or deter her from doing what she wants. Though Cole hears about her sexual reputation from other men in town, he shows her with his actions and his words that he respects her and her choices. If anything, he admires this woman who fully owns her sexuality. They share an abundance of steamy scenes (including one with her hookup friend). The character development is pretty basic, with Cole coming across as a quiet, somewhat grumpy guy with a good heart and Rachel as a vivacious, flirty and fun woman. The sex leads to more intense feelings, much to Rachel’s dismay, since she doesn’t want to fall for someone in this town she plans to leave. It’s an interesting turnabout, as Cole is the one who wants more than Rachel is initially prepared to give. The conflict is predictable but dealt with well, and they reach the compromise needed to ensure a happy ending. It’s a light, very sexy read. I look forward to reading more from this author.
Rachel Malone is the town slut. She says she doesn’t like the label, but if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck…. She uses sex to pass the time and offset her small town boredom. She only does casual, no relationships. Cole Sampson comes to town and she sees fresh meat. She’s very aggressive and pushy and comes across as immature.
Cole Sampson moves to small town USA to get away from people and blend in to the background. He is not a nice person, doesn’t like people and doesn’t try to pretend otherwise.
There is no chemistry between these two. It’s all mechanical and perfunctory. The writing is clunky and juvenile. There is no substance or any resemblance of a story line.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC for NetGalley.

Gotta love that old double standard. A man sleeps around and he's complimented. A woman exhibits the same behavior and she's called a slut.Read more
