“Don’t worry, the sugar and acid will balance each other out..” Sort of Like it is now, between us.”
Well if that statement doesn’t sum up the story between these two I don’t know what does!
Chloe is married to her job. She’s been burned one too many times by letting a man get in the way of her career. She will not let it happen again.
Until Paynter comes along… After a run in at the bar she decides he’s all the same and not worth it. She’ll probably never see him again anyway….. wrong ….. Someone just moved into the house next door. The house that SHOULD have been Chloe’s, the one she couldn’t afford. Can you guess who her new neighbor is?!
“My obituary will probably read, “died in a basement surrounded by kitty,” but I don’t give a hot damn.”
Paynter is the complete opposite of Chloe. He’s laid back and outgoing, just living his life. Trying to move on and get free from a past that still haunts him.
“Paynter actually likes me– that side of me that isn’t putting on a show for everyone else. And he’s making me question who I am, which part of me I really want to be.”
I have to say Chloe redeemed herself on her part of the story. Her attitude comes off as a stuck up snob and to be honest I had had enough of her! Paynter didn’t deserve someone with her shallow attitude… But then he brought something out in her that I liked and she liked herself. She was able to let her true colors shine through and let her walls down around him.
Their banter is cute and funny. The goat is a bit over the top but it just… fits… right into the story….. and the chandelier… Let’s just say there are plenty of moments to keep you laughing tears and swooning over the sexy times.
My rating: 3.5/5 kid-goat stars!
