Which is probably why Marcee Robbens found herself in the arms of a sexy stranger before the bouquet was even tossed at her best friend's wedding. And after a night of hot caresses and knee-weakening kisses in handsome Sam McKelvey's arms, even happily single Marcee is humming the wedding march. So when the sun comes up and Sam hits the road, the usually tough-as-nails beauty finds herself nursing a tender heart. . . .
Sam's not the kind of guy who would have a super-hot hook-up with a woman he barely knows. But something about Marcee had him mesmerized—enough for this usually sensible single dad to abandon his responsibilities for one unforgettable night. But Sam never thought his one night stand would turn up as his new next-door neighbor. Or that once he glimpsed the soft side of this captivating woman, he'd find himself falling in love. . . .

At a friend's wedding Marcee Robbens & Sam McKelvey meet and share one night of passion. A month later they find they're next door neighbors, Marcee raising teenage half brother Cam, widower Sam raising teen daughter Fern.
After Sam started having sex with Marcee again, he turned into a jerk, gave her no respect, honor, compassion or caring, just used her. He snuck in through her back door, had sex with her & snuck back out in the dead of night. The only places he took her there was NO CHANCE they'd be seen by anyone. When Marcie asked Sam to go out in public he always refused. He never stood up for her when someone insulted her but would be thinking what became his standard line, "They got it all wrong." yet never told them any different.
He said he didn't want to make their "dating" public because Fern would be upset with him "seeing someone". Yet he had no problem with everyone in town, including Fern & Marcee, assuming he & Paula were "seeing each other."...

This was a surprisingly good book. I was expecting a very light, fluffy, smutty book, but there was a surprising depth and small amount of smut.
I liked the characters, all of them, and really liked their growing relationships and growing as people. Marcee and Sam were nice together, and I liked how they worked through problems, even if Sam was rather frustrating at times and sometimes Marcee misunderstood what he was doing. I really liked Marcee’s brother and Sam’s daughter, and those two’s relationship. As well as Marcee’s relationship with her brother and Sam’s with his daughter, although I would have liked more focus and development in those areas. There was a lot of focus on everyone’s relationship to each other and their back story and how it developed them, and their nosy small town neighbors, and very...
