Summary (goodreads):
Look, but don’t touch… 

Leyla Karimi can’t keep her eyes off the hunky guy living in the house behind her. How could any woman resist ogling Dr. Mason Barrett, especially when he makes it so easy by parading around in his skin and skivvies? 

If it was only their age difference, she would have made a move a long time ago. Except Mason is more than a neighbor. He’s her baby brother’s oldest friend. It’s not like they can have a casual fling and walk away in the morning. 

Mason’s been doing a little lusting—okay a lot—for quite some time. When he catches Leyla peeking, it’s a sure sign she could finally be ready to heat up his nights with loving. One taste of her lips, though, and he doesn’t want a “little” of anything. He wants it all. 

Unwilling to jeopardize a lifetime of friendship for a one-night stand, Leyla is reluctant to throw caution to the wind. When he’s kissing her senseless, though, it’s hard to remember all the reasons why she should hold back… 

Warning: Contains a hot hero who doesn’t mind baring it all in the name of love, a heroine who doesn’t settle for less, a sweet romance, steamy sex in a car and more good lovin’ in bed.

Leyla and Mason have been friends since they were kids, in fact, she raised him. Along with her younger brother. So that might explain why Leyla's older brother Sasha is super over protective of his older sister. Both Leyla and Mason have a secret, they're both lusting for each other. It only got worse when Mason decided to rent the house behind Leyla's when she decided to move out on her own.... and he didn't bother to invest in blinds or curtains for his home. 

The story was short... but to the point. We get the background of both Leyla and Mason, what they do for a living, what they're like and their history together. But we also feel that raw, intense lust they have for each other and you're wondering who will make the first move? The chemistry between the two is unmistakable and I enjoyed watching their feelings slowly unravel.

Since the book wasn't that long, there really isn't much to say... I do wish that it were a little bit longer. Definitely a good quick read, I'm interested in reading more of Alisha Rai's work!

  1. Hmm, sounds like a nice short read. Good chemistry is always great for a romance novel, though I'm not a huge fan of ebooks. Nice, concise, review :D
