“Leo is the stuff dreams are made of…” ~ Goodreads reviewer

Grumpy construction king. Sword-fighting enthusiast. Secretly in love with his best friend.

Leo is HERE!

Romance may not be all that awakens while two best friends renovate a mansion rumored to be haunted.

If you kiss your best friend...

Halloween-loving Ren needs a new job. The only problem? The sole accountant opening in her small town requires construction experience, which are skills she lacks. Luckily, her best friend Leo— sexy, grumpy and completely off limits— is a construction hotshot. Their relationship is perfect as is, and, despite the intense chemistry, Ren refuses to ruin it with romance. Leo agrees to teach her, with one condition— she must live on site with him… and somehow survive the temptation.

You’d better be sure…

Skeptic, sword-swinging Leo has loved Ren since she mistook him for a hardware employee in the plunger section two years ago. While he took his time winning her trust, she caged him in the friend zone. He’ s done hiding his feelings, and living together— working, sleeping, playing— at the Gothic mansion he’s renovating will convince her that best friends make the best lovers.

It’s meant to be forever.

Ren resolves to resist Leo, even if he bends every rule. Discovering the mansion’s secrets— and lingering spirits, no matter what Leo claims— offers distraction enough. But with her defenses splintering, one kiss is all it takes to shatter every boundary, one night of passion to believe in happily ever after… and one crumbling letter of unrequited love to awaken ghosts forgotten. If Ren and Leo can’t piece together the past for two lost souls, they might lose more than their hearts.















  1. Awesome review from Net Galley! I’m new to them. Giving it a shot. I hate to pay and then get lukewarm reviews but sometimes the visibility is what matters.

    Congratulations to you my friend. Can’t wait to start reading.

      Thank you so much! Netgalley has been unpredictable for me. In the past, the reviewers were prompt and responsive. This time? Not so much. But if you don’t have a good co-op to go through, I can recommend one. Saves a ton of money.
