Interior Design School? Check. Cute house to fix up? Check.

Sexy, grumpy neighbor who is going to get in the way of your plans? Check. Unfortunately.

Grace Travis has it all figured out. In between finishing school and working a million odd jobs, she’ll get her degree and her dream job. Most importantly, she’ll have a place to belong, something her harsh mother could never make. When an opportunity to fix up—and live in—a little house on the beach comes along, Grace is all in. Until her biggest roadblock moves in next door.

Grace is a self-made person who has done everything to built an independent life. Her grandparents who were strangers for her; left their home for Grace in their will. Grace is about to finish her interior designing degree and decided to move into the house and repair and renovate it.

Noah is the son of a famous real estate developer and recently moved to California to make his own identity. Grace’s home is next to his and Noah wants to buy it at any price.

I don’t read much romance but I wanted to read something light. I was expected to be an enemy-lover troop but that part didn’t last for so long plus I won’t even say them, enemies. They had arguments but they were just arguments nothing more than that. I liked the story, it was light and quick.

Was it memorable? No.

Was it a little slow? Yes

Were both MC played flip house throughout the entire book? Yes

I like to read about renovation and stuff but this book had too much of it and lacked balance. I really liked the chemistry between Grace and Noah. It is one of those books where people were mature enough to talk about everything openly rather than assuming things. It was so refreshing to read that author didn’t go on the path of misunderstanding. I really appreciate it. Overall, it was quick and fun.
