Instead of soaking up the SoCal sunshine while housesitting for my aunt, I'm dealing with a Pomeranian who thinks she's a Pitbull, two half-sisters who would happily prune me off the family tree, and him. Vaughn Shaughnessy. Hot model about to go nuclear, dangerously sexy flirt whose perceptive green eyes promise he's more than just a pretty face. He's the kind of walking, talking temptation I should avoid, but that's impossible because he also happens to be my extremely lickable-I mean likeable-neighbor. He's turning me into a hot mess. Thing is, I can't handle more messes in my life. I'm still trying to come to terms with the monumental ones in my past, and getting involved with Vaughn-even for temporary summer fun-is guaranteed to get messy. I don't dare risk it, but I'm not sure I can resist.
