It isn’t anything like instant love. Far from it.
Eden Avery doesn’t want to be curious about her neighbor. He’s the most
infuriating and closed-off person she’s ever met—not to mention the rudest. She
doesn’t want to find the uptight bastard irresistible and she shouldn’t be able
to sense the minute he’s within spitting distance, but does. She really
shouldn’t fantasize about his hands on her body, but that’s happening
They can fight it all they want, but nothing can stop the mutual attraction
that’s about to disrupt both of their lives.

and the moment is over. I cringe when I realize whatever was in his eyes is
gone, almost as if it never happened at all. Now, he’s pinning me with a look
that could permanently freeze the tropics. Even still, his eyes make me weak in
the knees, regardless of the fact that they’re now subarctic. Jet black lashes
frame the most beautiful deep blue eyes I’ve ever seen, and right now they’re
transmitting one message loud and clear—stay the hell back. I’ve never come
across anyone less inviting in all my life.
