Haley is a high school history teacher who lives in what she considers her dream house. She has fixed the place up just the way she wants it inside and out. She takes pride in these accomplishments. So it really upsets her that her neighbor could care less about his home. That in itself is bothersome but then there’s his former conquests having drunken screaming fits on his front lawn in the middle of the night. She’s even handled that without a word of complaint to him but when he starting pulling up her flowers…it’s on.

Jason is also a high school history teacher at Holly’s school, in the room next door, in addition to being her neighbor from hell. He is a big guy with a even bigger appetite on all levels. His property is not kept up. He has wild parties and crazy exes. He has even used his front yard as a urinal. He’s also totally oblivious to his offensive ways until he pisses off the petite firecracker from next door.

This story was fantastic! I laughed out loud so much my stomach hurt. Haley is so loyal and kind. Jason is boorish but lovable. I have never seen another man love food this much! He loves it even more than J.R. Ward’s Rhage or Julia Quinn’s Colin and believe me that’s something. This would have had a A rating but there was a thought by the hero that offended me greatly and colored my view a little. That being said, I would recommend this book to anyone.
