Everything is coming together for Harper Grayson. She has a family she adores, a quaint little house that’s all hers, and a puppy to keep her warm at night. Plus, her lingerie shop, Kiss Me Goodnight, is successful. With her eyes now set on an expansion the moment the empty building next door finally becomes available, things are finally aligning perfectly for Harper. Until Latham Douglas walks through her door…
Latham Douglas has been back from a long stint in the Army for mere days when he has his first run-in with a blast from his past. It’s a pleasant surprise to find Harper Grayson selling sexy lingerie just down the block from his family’s hardware store, but he won’t let the stunning woman he remembers from school derail his plans. His business needs the empty building next door, and he’s willing to do just about anything to secure it.
Harper and Latham have the same dream. What happens when they realize they can’t both have what they want? Who will give, especially after business turns to pleasure? Can they keep their hearts out of it, or will the winner actually be the biggest loser of all?
I purchased the ebook and audio. I listened and read.
When I finished reading book 1, I jumped right into book 2. But life has stopped me from finishing it right away. LAWD, Can I saw first up…the audio voices are A-MAZ-BALLS. I love love love them. So if audio is your jam, shut up and buy it. However Harper and Latham….seriously enemies to lovers….BEST READ!!! These two are so stubborn and so in love *sigh*
Alright so we met Harper in book 1 and love her sassy spirit. We know she is a bit heartbroken over her ex but she is still looking for her special someone. She is a single lady and ready to mingle. Her best friend Free is an amazing bestie who will definitely help her bury any bodies as a good bestie should. Her ugly puppy Snuggles AKA Killer is the best companion and perfect at helping to steal Latham’s heart.
Latham returns home from the military and is taking over the family business next door to Harper. When his dad sends him over to help her, he starts planning on making her his along with planning to make her miserable but only in the best way.
We have seen a glimpse into something that happened when they were in high school but until late in the book we aren’t really sure what happened….and it’s a doozie friends!!
Those two have sizzling chemistry and SWEET BABY JESUS the pranks they pull on each other….STAHHHP!!! The best!! We see them both opening up buuuuut they are both also keeping secrets. They both know the other is bidding on the same piece of property to expand their businesses.
When the hearts start to get tangled and the L word is about to be spoken, the bidding war winner is revealed. Hearts are broken and misunderstandings happen. However, I LOVE what happens and hoe the end of the book is resolved. I would be lying when I saw I can’t wait to read them more in the other books of the series.
Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little “spice” or hot guys in uniform pants, and I’m a happy woman. There’s just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after.
