Love is just around the corner . . .
Sweet, shy Mara Hanover is in love with her neighbor. For four years, she has secretly watched her dream man from afar. Handsome police detective Mitch Lawson is way out of her league. She's a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, and there's no way a guy like Mitch would want anything to do with her. But when Mara has a leaky faucet that she can't fix, it's Mitch who comes to her rescue.
Mitch has been eyeing his beautiful neighbor for a long time. He jumps at the chance to help her, and soon their formerly platonic relationship gets very hot and heavy. But when Mara gets a disturbing phone call from her cousin's kids, she gets pulled back into the life she's tried so hard to leave behind. Can the hot law man convince Mara to let go of her past-and build a future with him?

My rating: 2 of 5 stars
2.5 **um and ah** STARS
Ok, we all know I'm a big KA fan, but that was a study in patience. I can't even explain how I managed to get through some of the major parts of this book. It started difficult to stomach and didn't get much better along the way. Although I have to say, the last 20% were right up my alley and seeing all of our old friends made me a little giddy, it didn't help the story as a whole. I'm sorry to say this might just be my least favourite KA book.
The heroine was unbearable. Mara has low self-esteem, lives in her own little world, with her own little rating system and is in love with her neighbour Mitch Lawson. The latter being one of her more appealing traits. I have to say, being in her head all the time was not a nice thing. She was introduced as one of those struck stupid by hot guy girls. One look at Mitch and she was speechless and lost braincells by the minute. Of course that let up after a while, but her insecurities were almost too much to bear.
I guess in hindsight, listening to the audiobook was a good idea and the only thing that kept me on track and actually made me finish the book. Of course Mitch was a yummy alpha male just like Ms. Ashley always writes them, but that alone doesn’t make a good read. Next to Mitch I have to point out Billy and Billie. The cutest little things. But oh god Mara...if only Mara was someone else entirely. Shame, such a shame.
