Fawn Reed has kissed one too many toads and has finally decided that Prince Charming doesn’t exist. After countless mishaps, mistakes, and unmitigated disasters on the dating scene, she’s decided to give up and move on with her life…solo.

Everything changes, however, after Fawn runs into Levi Fremont, a homicide detective new to New York City.

Dedication to the job has rendered Levi’s love life nonexistent—until he moves in next door to the free-spirited Fawn. After a series of comedic run-ins push them together, will they finally give in to the inevitable and realize—maybe—they are perfect for each other?

Grace Review

One crazy heroine.
One persistent detective.
One dog who just won’t listen to its owner.
Put is all together and you have the makings for a romance that is light on the angst and heavy on the sweet and sexy.

Fawn is an interesting heroine. Just like Levi, her new hot neighbor, I thought she was a nutjob at first. Upon closer inspection, she’s just a nut who’s a bit klutzy, which I can relate to. And even though each encounter with Fawn is ridiculous, Levi is immediately intrigued.

The connection between the Fawn and Levi is slow to develop. Frankly, if it wasn’t for her dog, Muffin, they’d be over before they ever started anything. Why? Because Fawn is a nut. For some bizarre reason, a gorgeous neighbor, who is beyond kind, and seems to have a definite interest in her, is something she’d rather avoid. Not sure why other than referring to her previously mentioned behavior.

“You’re making me dizzy.”

Although Levi is Alpha, being a NY detective and not letting up in his pursuit of Fawn, he really is the ultimate sweetheart.
The cake.
The dog walks.
Making breakfast.
Offering protection at every step.
All of it is there for the reader to swoon.

“I’m lost in you, baby.”

He is also super patient with Fawn, making sure he doesn’t move too fast. However, one sweet gesture by Fawn over the holidays really sets everything into motion. And it also provides some humor with guest overload.

As book one in a new series from the author, this book has plenty of side characters, whom I’ve already started paring off. We’ll see what direction the author takes the other stories, but I would guess Fawn’s two sisters, Libby and Mackenzie “Mac”, will each get their own story. I also think Lucas, Levi will either be part of one of their stories, or get his own too. But we’ll just have to wait and see. With Fawn and Levi’s crazy mom’s becoming reunited BFFs, we are also likely to see more from them.

Other than the couple’s story, there is a side story involving one of Fawn’s students and a suspect that Levi is chasing. I thought this was a little predictable but it did provide opportunity for both of the main characters to realize that life is short and fast track their future.

If you are looking for a super swoon-worthy book boyfriend, this book might have just what you are looking for.
