For Lexi Dean, burning down her kitchen was disaster enough. Agreeing to move in next door with her totally off-limits best friend, Matt Freeman, until her house is livable again?

Utter madness.

They’ve always been close, but this is ridiculous. If she’s not bumping into him at the refrigerator, he’s at the front door giving her date the third degree. And slipping between his borrowed sheets? That’s about as distracting as listening to his shower run, because suddenly all she can think about is rivulets of water cascading down is spectacular body—the one he seems to be going out of his way to make sure she notices.

Not that it matters. He can flaunt his firefighter abs around her all he wants. They already share everything—their jobs, their friends, their backyard, even their dog—and that means only one thing: Lexi is not going to risk losing any of it by dipping a single toe in the temptation that is Matt Freeman.

Lexi may not know how to handle a fire extinguisher, but this is one fire that just might burn them both if they’re not careful…

About the author:

Sarah Ballance, Author, PhotographUSA Today bestselling author Sarah Ballance and her husband of what he calls “many long, long years” live on the mid-Atlantic coast with their six young children, all of whom are perfectly adorable when they’re asleep. She never dreamed of becoming an author, but as a homeschooling mom, she often jokes she writes fiction because if she wants anyone to listen to her, she has to make them up. (As it turns out, her characters aren’t much better than the kids). When not buried under piles of laundry, she may be found adrift in the Atlantic (preferably on a boat) or seeking that ever-elusive perfect writing spot where not even the kids can find her.
She loves creating unforgettable stories while putting her characters through an unkind amount of torture—a hobby that has nothing to do with living with six children. (Really.) Though she adores sexy contemporary romance, Sarah writes in many genres including historical and ghostly supernatural romance and romantic suspense. Her ever-growing roster of releases may be found on Amazon , Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iBooks, Google Books, and ENTANGLED PUBLISHING.

Five Favorite Scenes
Only five? Man, I wish I could put the whole book up here. I actually had to entirely rewrite Finding Mr. Right Next Door a couple of times, so the scenes that made it truly are my favorites. All of them, because oh my gosh this book was stubborn. But let’s try to narrow it down, shall we?

Lexi and Elsie at the grocery store.

Look, this shouldn’t sound interesting, much less entertaining, but in my decade of writing, and over the course of twenty-plus books, this is the only scene I’ve ever written that makes me laugh out loud every singe time I see or even think of it. Once you meet Elsie you’ll probably understand, but suffice to say Lexi is a distracted mess and Elsie is just a mess, period, and when Elsie shouts at Lexi, I lose it. Every time.

Matt and Lexi the morning after.

No spoilers here—y’all know they go there! The morning after the sex can be a little too real, but Lexi is determined to shake it off. Things went where they went, and the last thing she wants is to feel like she’s competing with any of Matt’s typical goddess-types, so she takes it the other way, opting to become the absolute antithesis of a goddess. And has never been more embarrassed in her life.

Lexi’s bedroom.

So, it turns out, you can go home again, and Lexi is completely weirded out by her new post-coital status with Matt. Every memory her old bedroom holds is suddenly redefined, and it’s kind of a hard shift for her, but Matt, typical Matt, immediately distracts her by being adorable and incorrigible. It’s fun and playful, but it also has turning-point significance. Plus, he subtly, endearingly drives her crazy in front of her parents.

Breakfast at the fire station.

After Matt torments Lexi at her parents’ dinner table, she turns it around on him, hitting back over breakfast at the fire station. By then they’re trying hard to ignore what’s happening between them, so her goading him—under the table they share with their friends—leads them to make a decision that will derail everything.

When Matt makes Lexi all swoony on the sofa.

Lexi loves romantic comedies, and Matt thinks they’re ridiculous. He furthers his claim by saying he can make her fall for his cheesy romcom movie lines, even as she knows he’s feeding them. And he’s not wrong, but that’s not even the point. What transpires between them is so swoon-worthy, so very Lexi and Matt, that I can’t help but love it.
