He wanted to be left alone, but he got his hot new neighbor instead.

Tired of big city life, software developer Cole Sampson moves to a small Canadian town to get some peace and quiet. Unfortunately, his keep-the-hell-away-from-me vibes don’t work on his gorgeous new neighbor.

Waitress Rachel Malone is intrigued by the hot curmudgeon living next door and his very sexy scowl. Sure, he keeps shutting down her every advance, but before long, she finally catches his interest.

A red-hot, sex-only relationship is what they want. But Cole can’t get over the fact he likes cuddling, and Rachel won’t let herself fall in love, not when she’s finally decided to follow her dreams and move to the city. Still, it’s just sex. Isn’t it?


“With some surprising (and welcome) kink, what TEMPTING HER NEIGHBOR lacked in length—it was a quick and dirty read—it made up for in a cute small-town setting and a no-nonsense sex-turned-love story. While I wish there'd been a little more in the end, I closed this book feeling pretty good about this new-to-me author and series, and more than willing to head back to Georgeville in the future.” - Beth Cranford, Panda and Boodle

It's refreshing to read a story with a female character who loves sex...It's an interesting turnabout, as Cole is the one who wants more than Rachel is initially prepared to give. The conflict is predictable but dealt with well, and they reach the compromise needed to ensure a happy ending. It's a light, very sexy read.” - Maria Rose, All About Romance

This book was crazy and full of surprises. I like the writing style and how true this story really is...Towards the end, I ended up loving Rachel because she developed and Cole balanced her out.” - Milli Fuentes, Goodreads

WOW! what a great hot story. I really liked the plot and the romance.” - Lori Belcher, Too Many Romances

“Both Cole and Rachel have to deal with some emotional baggage that fuels their commitment issues. But for once it's the guy who realizes first that what they share is worth making compromises for, and that it is possible for them to find a way to make things work. This all moves at a fast clip, but nothing is given short shrift. If you are looking for a short and sexy read, TEMPTING HER NEIGHBOR should definitely make your tbr list.” - Eva Scalzo, Indecisive Opinions

Short and sweet, the author gets right down to business and brings us a story light on chatter that focuses on the life of the characters.” - Chris Carroll, A Midlife Wife

Gotta love that old double standard. A man sleeps around and he's complimented. A woman exhibits the same behavior and she's called a slut. Nice book, showed the downside of living in a small town.

This book was crazy and full of surprises. I like the writing style and how true this story really is. Being a girl and sleeping around with men, then you are considered a slut, but if you were male, you would get a trophy.

In a small town, Rachel is the slut who sleeps with every guy she lays her e ...more

Oh, what can I say about this story? It’s sizzling hot for sure, but also had me snort/giggling and wanting to knock heads together.

Small town heat….

“Rachel Malone had a reputation…”

Yes, she did. If owning one’s sexuality, and enjoying sex, meant raising the eyebrows of her small-minded, small town neighbors then that is what Rachel was going to do. No apologies. No stammering. She was a good person who just happened to enjo ...more

Cole Sampson is not a people person at all, in fact, he is rude to keep them away. He's tired of big city life, so he moves to a small Canadian town, hoping for some peace and solitude. What he didn't count on was his sexy new neighbor, or how much he wants her. Rachel Malone was a small town girl w ...more

I liked this. It was refreshing, fast-paced and fun with that little bit of heartache. I really liked Cole because he's so antisocial, and gives off the jerk vibes I love from alpha males; unlike them, however, he's not so exper ...more

Really enjoyed this. Super grumpy, anti-social hero meets sweet heroine with a bad reputation. She helps him move furniture into his new apt. She's interested in a physical-only thing and propositions him multiple times before he says yes. He's attracted to her, but he prefers to avoid people and is ...more

If Sheldon Cooper was a charter in a romance novel... he would be Cole Sampson! The hole time I read this book I could not stop thinking about how much he reminded me of Sheldon!

Tempting Her Neighbor is a short read about a guy who doesn't want to associate with people in general and his neighbor who wants him. Cole is a hard fellow to get a read on and I wasn't sure if I liked him at first. Even though this book is short, the author covers a lot of both characters lives an ...more

Rachel has a reputation, unfortunatly she's kinda known as the town slut. If she were a man, she'd be given back slaps and high fives. This is how she keeps from getting her heart broken.

Tempting Her Neighbor by Laura Jardine  
Right out the gate, Ms. Jardine distanced herself from the pact. She took the saying "think like a man" to heart and created a woman full of contradictions. Rachel is as aggressive as can be when it comes to her sex drive, but although she dreams of forever, ...more

Cole was hardly the picture of a romance novel hero, but this was the man she’d fallen for. Head over heels.

That quote. That quote right there pretty much sums up how I feel about the tempted neighbor in Tempting Her Neighbor. Cole was super grumpy—one of the grumpiest heroes I've come across—and i ...more

When grumpy but hot Cole Sampson moves next door to Rachel Malone, she can't help but want to dig beneath the surface and indulge in a hot affair with her standoffish neighbor.
