Sensuality: HOT

RT Rating

Alward's tale is a quick read, but there's little in the way of conflict to draw the reader in. The tension between the hero and heroine doesn't seem realistic. If either actually talked to the other, there'd be no story. Readers may empathize more with the hero and the heroine's sister than with the heroine, although it's hard to believe that the sister never once mentioned who her neighbor was.

When Molly learns her
sister has been hospitalized after
an accident, she returns home to
care for her toddler niece, who's
been staying with the next-door
neighbor. Jason Elliot was Molly's
college lover, but when he shared
his dream for a future with her and
proposed, she left town without a word. A big-city lawyer with thoughts only of advancing in her field, Molly
has no idea how hard it can be to
care for a small child.

Jason was happy to help out
single mom Kim, but he and Kim weren't meant to be a couple. With Molly next door for a few weeks,
the successful veterinarian is hoping that he'll either get the closure he needs after all these years, or make Molly realize that it's still possible
for them to have a future together. (Samhain, Jul., 224 pp., $12.00)
