Well this certainly takes the steam up a couple of notches! This starts out STEAMY and stays that way throughout, with palpable sexual chemistry sparking between these characters. For me, it was more of a sexual relationship than anything else, which left me feeling a little disconnected from their emotional relationship – but that makes for a tension-filled, super sexy read. This broody, broken hero is somewhat difficult to like (and a love a grump), but it’s easy to see that he’s a loving father with a sweet side that’s buried beneath the surface. I wish we had seen more of the good times between this couple outside of the bedroom, but Saman’s writing shines in other ways.
The story follows Landon, a man who has loved and lost. He’s a widower with a teenage daughter, and he locked his heart away when his wife died. So when Landon meets a beautiful woman in a bar, it’s just supposed to be a one night stand – even if they have a great connection. He’s not emotionally available for a relationship, and Elle is newly divorced with plenty of her own issues. But when Landon discovers that Elle is his new neighbor AND his daughter’s new teacher, all of those good intentions fly out the window. They have the kind of chemistry that’s impossible to ignore, and they’re drawn together despite both of their hesitations.
I’ll openly admit that it took me a little longer than usual to warm up to this story – while I’m a big fan of Saman’s work, this particular series has so many common themes that they blend together for me. Not only are the covers nearly indistinguishable from each other, but every hero is a billionaire, commitment-phobic doctor, and every heroine seems to have a terrible ex. Once I got further into the story, the unique elements became clear – Landon is a single dad, he actually is more of a relationship guy, and the neighbors dynamic is a definite win (HELLO facing windows, you never disappoint). I loved how charged their interactions were, and how sexual tension-filled every scene is, though I would’ve happily traded away one or two steamy scenes for one or two more moments of emotional connection. Honestly, Elle emotionally connected with Landon’s daughter more than she did him. Things moved pretty fast once Landon let his walls down, and I needed a few more reasons to love him. That being said, I always go into Saman’s work with very high expectations, because she is so skilled at making forbidden relationships SIZZLE. If you’re new to her work, then it’s definitely time to give it a try.
He’s cruel. Insufferably attractive. And broken beyond redemption.
After the nightmare I just ran from, those details should have made him the perfect storm of do not touch. Except I didn’t know any of this—other than the attractive part—when I met him.
Our story started on a lie.
He pretended to be someone else, and I didn’t ask a lot of questions. Nor did I try to stop him when he snuck out of my hotel room in the wee hours of the morning. I was determined to start my new life on an uptick and a wild one-night with a hot stranger felt like just the ticket.
Only I should have known something that good wouldn’t end that easy.
On my first night in my new house, our paths cross again when I discover he’s my new neighbor. No longer the charming man I met in the bar, he’s a grump, completely unfriendly, and utterly intolerable. As if this couldn’t get any worse, I quickly learn I’m also his daughter’s new teacher.
A wonderful daughter I can’t help but fall in love with.
Something I refuse to do with him. Our button-pushing back and forth never fails to get under my skin. If anything, his sudden off-limits status makes resisting this devil of a single dad that much easier.
Regardless of the temptation he presents. How searing his heated gaze is when I catch him staring. Or how breathless our stolen moments leave us.
After all, this is the fresh start I so desperately need, and I will not let anything get in my way.
No. I can’t give in to Doctor Heartless. No matter how hard he tries to change my mind.

I’ve been dreading this for a year.
Okay, that’s a lie. I’ve been dreading this reunion since we graduated high school ten years ago.
So why am I here, standing outside the door like the eternal wallflower I am?
I’d say it’s because my younger sister browbeat me into it, but the truth is, I’m tired of being a nobody. Of never taking a risk with myself and my life.
And…well…maybe I’m also hoping to see him.
The tall, insanely gorgeous man walking my way now. Oliver Fritz is regarded as one Boston’s sexiest doctors. I know him as the former god of our school. The one every girl wanted, and every guy wanted to be.
The one as loathsome to be here as I am.
