Rowan Lively is the neighbor from hell, with a parade of beautiful women only too happy to stroke his inflated ego. And I can’t take another night of listening to him making those noises through the paper-thin walls. I need to design my latest board game, not fantasize about my gorgeous neighbor.

Anonymous fun with a costumed hottie at a gaming conference is a sexy distraction from terrible online reviews and conflicts with my creative team. I’m craving a physical release to put Rowan out of my mind. Until our true identities are revealed, and I find myself in a compromising position with my neighborly nemesis…

Now I can barely look Rowan in the eye, and the sparks between us are hot enough to burn down the building. Soon we’re waking the neighbors with our passionate games and working together on a new exhibit for his Melbourne art gallery. And even though I know the score—this is just a fling—I can’t help wondering…will he ever play for keeps?


Delightfully wicked, yet bittersweet. With the final book in her highly addictive Close Quarters series Stefanie London had one last pairing to weave into our hearts and she did it gloriously. I hate to see the series come to an end, but I have adored every single minute of getting to know the characters at 21 Love Street and taking part in their happily ever afters.

Emery is delightful. She’s smart and successful and doesn’t hesitate to live her life her way with spice and pizzazz while holding her head high and not taking attitude from anyone.

Rowan is playful and self-assured and hooked me immediately. He has a persona to uphold, but he’s got a whole lot of heart beneath the surface that makes him even more endearing.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a steamy romance filled with easy to like characters, witty humor and charm and combustible chemistry galore. This series is a whole lot of fun!
