Meet the Lennox Brothers!
There isn’t much I wouldn’t do.
In fact, my income depends on doing things most women wouldn’t.
But after I accidentally turned my whole life into a cautionary tale, I think it’s time to write a list of all the things I should absolutely, positively never do again.
1. Don’t offend every duck lover on the planet.
2. Don’t get dragged into a war with the neighbors.
3. DEFINITELY don’t fall for the charms of Mason Lennox.
Mason may be the manliest hunk of manhood I’ve ever salivated over, but he’s one of the neighbors I’m supposed to be battling. Besides, he already broke my heart once, so I’d have to be certifiable to go back for seconds.
Plus, I’m pretty sure he’s hiding something big from me. And not just in his pants.
Come to think of it, I should probably add one more thing to my list: Never trust a man with secrets.
It was the perfect scheme.
Buying the empty house next door was about to solve my family’s money problems to the tune of twenty-five million dollars.
Then my brilliant plot hit a snag
Somebody’s moved into the house that should be empty. I have a mysterious and beautiful new neighbor. And though I’ve sworn to keep my distance, my prankster brother and kleptomaniac cat are conspiring against me. Together they could mess up my master plan.
But I won’t let that happen.
I have twenty-five million good reasons not to get tangled up with the gorgeous woman next door.
If only she didn’t have a wicked scheme of her own…
It started as a favor.
Natalie needed a chef. I was looking for inspiration for my prime-time cooking show.
Thing is, Nat and I used to date, and no matter how hot our chemistry still is, my heart can’t stand a repeat. So we’ve set down some ground rules.
No innuendoes. No suggestive remarks. No licking of frosting, fingers, or lips. No cute dimples. No… Well, you get the idea.
No funny business. What. So. Ever.
Only it turns out, Nat and I aren’t so good with rules.
Now we’re fake engaged, giving prime-time media interviews, and pretending to plan a wedding. The crazy’s escalating, and the danger signs are clear. Nat already trampled on my heart once and I won’t let it happen again.
But I’m pretty sure this whole half-baked idea is about to get us both burned.
