Love comes along when it's least wanted

Jason Guthrie has no time for entanglements—between helping out his widowed brother and teenage nephew and getting his hometown back on its feet, his days are spoken for. But his nights are another story... And when his lovely new neighbor, Honor Brown, reluctantly accepts his help in remodeling her house, Jason finds himself wishing his handyman skills could knock down the defenses she keeps building around herself.

Martial arts teacher Sullivan Dean knows real danger when he sees it—even when it takes the form of the gorgeous blonde helping her friend move in across the street. After putting his wayward past behind him to focus on teaching control to troubled kids, Sullivan has learned to avoid party girls like Lexie Perkins. But Sullivan can't seem to keep his hands off the real woman behind that flirty charm—or keep his heart from landing at her feet...

    Best friends find hunky men and everlasting love in Foster’s latest charmer. When hairstylist Honor Brown buys a fixer-upper in a rundown neighborhood in the generic small American town of Clearbrook, she discovers that her new neighbor puts the gent in gentrification. Just the sight of Honor as she climbs out of the moving van sends a shiver through Jason Guthrie. Never mind that Honor’s best friend, Lexie Perkins, is just as pretty in her own way; his carnal receptors are tuned to Honor’s frequency. Even though she’s determined to do all the rehab work herself, it turns out Honor can use an occasional hand from Jason—sometimes with a hammer, sometimes without. Meanwhile, Lexie starts hooking up with Sullivan Dean, another neighbor. The foursome’s road to a double happy ending is paved with Foster’s characteristic breezy banter and uncomplicated plot. Her no-fail formula is sure to please her fans.

    It's lust at first sight and a double romance in this new novel of neighbors helping neighbors by the prolific Foster (Fighting Dirty, 2016, etc.).When 29-year old Honor Brown and her best friend, Lexie Perkins, pull a moving van up to Honor's new house in a rough neighborhood in Clearbrook, Ohio, they didn't expect to find such hot neighbors. A shirtless Jason Guthrie, his brother, Hogan, and nephew, Colt, all offer to help her move into the new house. Determined to be independent and way too distracted by Jason's perfect physique, Honor repeatedly refuses Jason's help, even though the neighborhood is not particularly safe for a young, single woman. After someone blows up Honor's mailbox with a pipe bomb, she decides to accept the help of Jason and other neighbors, including a sheriff and a martial arts instructor. Things get steamy with Jason, but with a family history of abandonment and a beloved grandfather on his deathbed, Honor doesn't know if she wants to trust him. Meanwhile, best friend Lexie goes on a date with the martial arts instructor Sullivan Dean. Their attraction is so explosive they don't even get through their dinner before going home and tearing each other's clothes off. They both think they want only a one-night stand, but they soon realize there's more to their relationship than just sex. Although the premise of sexy neighbors finding romance is admirable, trying to pack two romances into one book falls flat. Honor and Jason are the primary couple, but none of the characters have enough time to develop, and the plot lacks drama. The characters often seem interchangeable, and the first third of the book could be spent just keeping the names straight. Foster's loyal fans might be satisfied with this effort, but they deserve better.
