I moved to Chicago six months ago, determined to finally open my own bakery. My landlady was this sweet woman who treated me like her granddaughter.
Then she sold the house. Now the devil himself is my landlord and neighbor since I live in the guesthouse on his property. Declan Maxwell is moody, unreasonable, and takes himself far too seriously. Unfortunately for me, he’s also damn sexy.
When he shows up on my doorstep in the middle of the night ordering me to turn down the music, I give him hell. Secretly, I’m also checking him out. We go toe to toe like this almost every night.
The man is impossible. But here’s the thing. I need a place to stay while I save for my business and this place is a steal. So, I need to put up with this handsome devil, though from a distance—because he’s far too gorgeous.
Then one day I come home injured from work and he surprises me by taking care of me.
And kissing me.And just like that, all my best intentions go up in smoke.
Layla Hagen is the queen of sweet and swoony romance with fabulous characters! The Maxwell brothers are some of the best book boyfriends around. It starts with a little enemy-to-lovers vibe which soon turns into something more. Declan is the focused and stoic eldest brother of the Maxwell clan, but his undoing is Liz, his new neighbor who, at first, annoyed him. But he soon realizes he’s misjudged her, that she’s just as driven as he is.
One of the things I love most about Layla Hagen’s books is the family dynamic. The Maxwell’s are the family we’d all love to have. Such a great read!
