She likes it quick and dirty.
I like orders and rules.
She hates small talk.
I hate to share.
She’s an open book.
I’m a closed dresser drawer.
She rides a Harley.
And that drives me f’ing nuts.
Annalyse and I have both lived in our own personal hells for half a decade. She’s learned to love the warmth, and I’m still consumed. But my new neighbor is stoking more than my libido these days. We agreed on only pleasure. But she changed the rules.
And now I’m not even sure what they are.
Maybe there’s a reason she found me that night, maybe there’s a reason I can’t stop thinking about her, maybe there’s a reason for the pain. Maybe not.
We all look for reasons in life. Reasons for death, love, pain. Why one thing happens and not another? It’s human nature. We’ve been looking for the meaning of life since the beginning of time. But maybe the reason for all of it — life, love, loss, heartache — is the curvy brunette living next door.

My Review & Rating
I liked this one. I was super slow reading this one, thanks life... but I really enjoyed this story. It is very complex and very emotionally charged. I love how strong the characters are.
I really liked the build up of the story, it wasn't super fast and it wasn't too slow. I think the story the characters have together is amazing, but even their individual stories are fantastic. Which makes for a great all around read. The way this story weaves together is a beautiful story of love, loss, and learning. I really enjoyed this story, and I think contemporary readers will really enjoy it as well.
I really enjoy this author's writing. I've read several of her books, and I went into this with really high expectations. I feel like she met them without question. This author has a way of telling a story so vividly and so detailed without getting bogged down. Her flow is amazing and is so effortless to read. I really enjoy it.
The twist in this story is CRAZY! I didn't expect it at all. I was shocked by it. This story is so detailed I tended to have it playing in my head while I read, like I could see it happening, you know? So this twist, it was like a shock to my system and I had so many crazy feelings while it happened. I don't know how to explain it, but if you read and experience books the way I do you get it; you will LOVE this author because movies just happen in your head while you read. It's great!
