A satisfying category romance from Entangled’s new Lovestruck imprint…

Love thy sexy jerk of a neighbor…

CEO Michael Anderson might be something of a “control freak.” Still, he’s not quite sure why his therapist thinks dogsitting will fix anything—especially since he and the canine share a kind of mutual loathing. And to make matters worse, a house sitter moves in next door disrupting his peace—and his dates—with the worst possible music at the worst possible time… every time.

Free-spirited artist Mia Argaropolis has settled into the perfect gig—housesitting in NYC’s Upper West Side while working as an art therapist. Too bad she’s stuck living next door to a bossy control freak with a penchant for calling building security when she blasts music to drown out the noises coming through his bedroom wall.

Post-apocalyptic dinner rolls that nearly take her kitchen with them, a douchebag ex, and a Shih Tzu with the personality of Godzilla attack Mia in one day, and her unlikely neighbor comes to the rescue. Like it was her fault. And now, somehow, they find themselves engaged? Both agree, this neighborly feud just got taken to a whole new level.
There is our girl Mia. Low self esteem, messy and witty. And the perfect neighbour Michael; CEO, playboy, control freak. What happens when two almost exact opposites come together. Do they fit or break? As you can guess hate, love or both. :)
I liked the sexual tension created between them and the fun dialogs. You could actually feel the tension and laugh at the same time. Though the order of the things how they got "stuck" in the same house how things developed was not very satisfying. It all seemed like not she was stuck with him but a bit forced and rushed to get them to live together. Other than that which eat up a star I think it was good. I read the all thing in a go therefore definitely not boring. So if you like the genre the synopsis go for it. But don't expect much other than a love novel.

Rating: 3.5/5
