Blurb: How does a woman get past the shock of her fiancé leaving her at the altar—for a man? For Kristen Carter, it involves throwing herself into her job as a journalist and convincing herself that her life is much better without a man in it. That is, until sexy and seductive construction worker Austin McKenzie moves in next door. From the first time she spies him through his bedroom window making love to another woman, she is instantly drawn to him and her voyeuristic tendencies make her crave him in every way.

But Austin’s been around the block—several times. Now he wants the stability that a steady relationship can bring, and once he meets his next-door neighbor he feels he’s finally met the woman for him. The problem lies in turning Kristen into a believer—even after an unexpected visitor turns their world upside down.

Review: Cute but it could have been better. The characters seemed to be in a much more serious relationship than the time line and conversations allowed. Austin’s desperation kinda killed him for me at one point. I realize that since Kristen had her heart broken she didn’t think she needed a relationship with a man. The blurb says that Austin has been around the block a few times…he ain’t the only one. Kristen hasn’t just been throwing herself into her work.

Overall the story seemed to be rushed on the emotional level. I really liked the plot and premise, I just wish that it had been expanded on a bit more so I wouldn’t have felt that the emotions were so rushed.
