Sweet Spot BLURB:
Our first meeting as neighbors was screwed from the start.
He was hot. I was naked. And we had no chance in hell at ever being platonic.
I’ll be the first to admit that I live at extremes. After going ten years locked in what felt like a dysfunctional marriage, I’m now decidedly boy-free. In nearly three years I’ve had no boyfriends, no flings, no dates and no sex. For the sake of my dream career, the sacrifice has been easy.
At least it was.
Until he came along.
Lukas Hendricks. He’s rude, gorgeous, arrogant – a stone-carved wall of muscle and distraction. He’s everything I know to avoid but there’s no avoiding your next-door neighbor. Oh yeah. The man now lives three steps from me and to make matters worse, he crashed into my life while I was relaxed in the tub – mortifying to say the least and it went something like this: I was exposed. He looked. He laughed.
And then I locked myself out.
In short, Lukas Hendricks was trouble from the start. And me?
I was – for the first time in years – about to be screwed.

The neighbor trope is a major factor when I choose a book to read! I love them all, so normally, Sweet Spot was next on my list!
This beautiful rom-com has 2 characters I liked reading about, since everything was hot about them! Lia Popa is living in a quiet building until Lukas Hendriks comes along and manages to make her forget everything about it. He is loud, he is hot, and he is very hard to overlook, especially when you run on a dry spell for over 3 years. On top of that, you meet him dripping wet, with a half-tied robe. Lia is all about work and no play, but Lukas changes her view on her life choices.
It was lovely to see how Lia heals Lukas since he blames himself on messing up the lives of his loved ones, in the events of a tragedy that still haunts him in present days. He struggles with his commitment but falls hard for her.
Meanwhile Lia is busy starting her business and growing but fears that Lukas is in her life with an expiration date.
All in all, a beautiful romantic comedy that can be read as a standalone. I read this in one sitting.
I had a feeling Sara and Julian will be next, together, so I am extremely happy for that to be true.
