Kaine Reynolds wants nothing more than solitude. After an unthinkable tragedy destroys his family, he’s cut off all ties to his former life so he can battle his grief the only way he knows how.
So when Piper Campbell knocks on his door, rambling on about being his new neighbor, he slams the door in her face.
But Kaine’s gruff demeanor doesn’t scare her. She’s set on living in Montana and starting over after a terrible divorce. And she wouldn’t mind having a fling to chase away the pain of her husband’s betrayal. Her handsome, albeit rude, neighbor is the perfect candidate.
Yet what neither of them suspect is that their no-strings affair will result in the surprise of Piper’s lifetime—and Kaine’s worst fear.

*** 3 Star Review ***
I don't like that I didn't like this book. This series so far had been pretty good. This one fell a little more flat for me.
I liked the storyline. I somewhat liked the characters. That was about it for me. I am just sitting here in the middle. I didn't dislike the book, but I also wasn't over the moon about this one.
I think I will start with Piper. We met her in the first book of the series. She was a kick butt character. I didn't feel that in this book. She wasn't the same character she seemed to be in the first one. She was a completely different character. I just wasn't overall impressed with her, and I had a hard time connecting to her.
Kaine. The brooding, tortured, mountain man neighbor. There were times I dug his character. All other times, I just got annoyed with him and his secrets, which I saw most of them from the beginning. It wasn't hard to pick up on what they were.
The first half of this book felt like a quest to see how many times these two could have sex. Two people who didn't know each other at all. I think that is where things went downhill for me. They did pick back up from time to time.
The second half of the book I found myself just wanting to get to the end of the book. I found myself skimming a few parts. I was over the inner monologues. And if I am honest, bored with these characters. I think there needed to be more interaction of secondary characters in the storyline to keep the book more interesting.
I will admit I saw the end result coming a mile away. I was glad for it though. It was a good result, although all of the healing happened a little too fast after soooo much brooding. I was glad to see these two get their happily ever after.
I think most Deveny fans will enjoy this one. It just wasn't one for me in the long run.
