About the book:

Serial bachelor. Celebrity author. Her perfect forever?

When famous author Luke Maguire decides to write his next novel in the small town of Burronga, Australia, he’s sure he can ignore the fiery redhead next door. Not only has he just been burned from a high-profile breakup, but he’s never been one to set down roots. No, he’ll finish his novel and leave Burronga. And soon.

Tyler Jones just wants to run her business with her best friend, Ally, and take care of her three-year-old daughter, Chloe. She’s never needed help from anyone, especially not a man, and the brooding, rugged writer next door can’t tempt her. Not in the least.

Only Tyler and Luke can’t stay away from each other. So they set rules. No staying overnight, no future plans, no sappy good-byes when Luke inevitably quits town. But the chemistry between them is too strong to contain in a rulebook. Are Luke and Tyler ready to risk their lives of independence for something more?

Tyler and Luke both want nothing to do with happily ever after. Tyler just wants to raise her daughter on her own and life her life the way she wants. Luke just wants to actually write the book he has been working on for months. When their paths cross they both try to deny the fireworks between them, but have a hard time denying the attraction. I really liked both characters, but did get tired of their “I don’t want anything permanent” attitude. My favorite character was Tyler’s daughter, Chloe. She is spunky and continuously brings Tyler and Luke together throughout the story. I enjoyed the “torture” the characters put themselves through while they denied their feelings for the other and the romantic moment when they realized that they were meant to be.
