Fresh from a broken engagement, the last thing Brandy Kane wants is to deal with her standoffish new neighbor, even if his dog is a sweetheart.
Ian Hudson doesn’t like people, which includes the busybody family who’s apparently moving in the property below his private cabin. A place he thought was abandoned for good. He’s secluded himself for a reason, and he isn’t about to allow his peace to be disturbed.
But when the rest of his teetering world takes a nose dive, his new neighbor might be the only one to get him through. It will just take adding a little mischief.
Aw, what a sweet romance. I loved the peaceful setting in the woodsy area, the gradual building friendship to romance between Ian and Brandy, the pop of suspense and the cute dog!
This is a sunshine/grump, fake dating troupe with the bonus of a little suspense toward the end to liven things up. I love a little suspense. Or a lot. I like that too. :)
It was fun to see Brandy win over Ian with her kindness and understanding. Both Ian and Brandy have some past (and present) hurts they are trying to work through and I love how they discovered it was better to deal with them together. They were fun characters and I enjoyed getting to know them through this story.
Content: mild peril, mild violence. Kissing. Mention of infidelity.
