Overview

Opposites attract, but heaven help these two.

Tattoo artist Seth Wheeler thinks he’s struck gold when Darren Romero rents the apartment across the hall. The new guy is gorgeous, witty, and single, plus he’s just the right blend of bold and flirtatious. Perfect.

Except then Darren reveals that he moved to Tucker Springs to take a job as the youth pastor at the New Light Church. Seth is not only an atheist, but was thrown out by his ultra-religious family when he came out. He tends to avoid believers, not out of judgment but out of self-preservation.

But Darren doesn’t give up easily, and he steadily chips away at Seth’s defenses. Darren is everything Seth wants in a man . . . except for that one massive detail he just can’t overlook. Is Darren’s religion the real problem, or is it just a convenient smoke screen to keep him from facing deeper fears? It’s either see the light, or risk pushing Darren away forever.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book


    How do you describe a book when all you can think is “Wow…”? I would never have thought of putting a minister in a gay romance novel but Witt makes the combination work. This story was especially sweet with the mix of a hard-living yet mellow (and atheist) tattoo artist and an easy-going, open-minded youth minister. The premise may seem far-fetched in the real world (although I suppose it is possible) but it works here and comes off as quite everyday.

    This is why I call it a “Wow” book – the kind of book where I become so enamored of the characters and immersed in their back-stories that by the end of the first chapter I feel as if I have a personal stake in the relationship. I’m invested. Which is what I love about Witt’s writing – she grabs me from the first first word and keeps me hooked through til the end.

    It doesn’t hurt that I have my own personal stake in the Tucker Springs. My best friend and buddy is a sweet Beagle named Tucker. He is the reason I was first attracted to the series – simply for the name and for the authors involved in the project. I’ve relished each story set in Tucker Springs, even though they’re written by different authors. The great thing is that one book is not dependent upon the others so they can be read in any order, at any time.

    Witt infuses the book with her trademark humor and it is honestly one of the best things I love about her books. Each page is littered with sarcastic quips and hilarious remarks that make the book flew by so quickly. ~ Under the Covers

    I LOVE. L.A.WITT. And when I say that, I mean it with my whole heart so when I read the blurb for this book, I thought oh no, where is she going with this book? A gay minister and a tattoo artist couldn’t be a more unlikely pair, but you see, Witt has a way of surpassing your expectations and giving readers something to talk and rave about. I ended up loving COVET THY NEIGHBOR!

    In the fourth book of the multi-author Tucker Springs series, Witt introduces Seth Wheeler, a fun and loveable tattoo artist who thinks the best thing that has ever happened to him is the moving in of a hot new guy next door. Darren Romero is all that Seth loves in a guy. Funny, flirty, a little aggressive and gorgeous! What’s more is that Darren has displayed an immediate interest in Seth as well. What could be better, right?

    It isn’t until Seth asks what Darren does for a living that he freezes for a moment. A minister? As in he preaches the word of God? The notion seems unbelievable especially after they have the hottest round of sex I’ve read in a long time. But it is what it is, and it only creates conflict within Seth has he tries to come to grips about this.

    Witt infuses the book with her trademark humor and it is honestly one of the best things I love about her books. Each page is littered with sarcastic quips and hilarious remarks that make the book flew by so quickly. Readers immediately fall in love with the heroes because of the easy-going nature of Witt’s writing. You are just drawn to them as characters and want to know more.

    Another thing I love about this book and Witt’s overall writing is the dialogue. Upbeat and perfectly paced, Witt keeps things moving with her unique way of evoking and expressing emotion. You definitely sense the effort that Darren and Seth put in to make their relationship work. Sometimes, it’s not easy and the fact that they communicate to get around these obstacles makes for a very believable romance.

    If you haven’t read any of Witt’s work yet, then I strongly suggest you try any one of her books. She’s become one of my most recent auto-buy authors and has not disappointed me yet!

    Seth Wheeler has been an atheist and has kept clear of anything

    Seth Wheeler has been an atheist and has kept clear of anything or anyone religious since his family disowned him and his church excommunicated him. He has settled his life in Tucker Springs where he owns his own business, counts his friends as his family and hooks up hen the mood strikes him. His world is turn upside down as soon as he meets and befriends Darren Romero. Especially since his attraction to the minister is instant and his conviction that all Christians are against his sexuality and his beliefs is put to the test as soon as they start getting to know each other.

    Darren moved to Tucker Spring to make a new life for himself. Although he finds Seth extremely attractive and their chemistry is explosive, he isn't a one-night stand kind of guy and he won't settle for anything less than Seth's honesty regarding their relationship. Friends or lovers, he wants Seth in his life without secrets, hang-ups or awkwardness standing between them.

    I have been waiting for Seth's story ever since I met him in Where Nerves End where he caught my attention, tempting me to want to know more about him. As I started reading this title I was so happy to see that what I assumed about Seth was mostly true. Although he stays away from establishing long-lasting romantic relationships, Seth has a good heart with an adorable, vulnerable side to him that tugged at my heart strings.

    L.A. Witt delivered a heart-felt romantic story where emotions ranged from frustration, disbelief and pain all through acceptance, lust and ultimately love. Mostly I appreciated the doubts and hesitations each character displayed regarding the relationship that was developing between them. If those were not to in place, my rating would have been completely different because it was while Seth analyzed and questioned that his true-self came to light and for me that was the highlight of my reading experience. Seth's developing throughout the story was a treat to read, especially how he came to accept a lot of things that he once would have never considered before meeting Darren.

    I enjoyed how Seth and Darren finally came together and how their chemistry felt palpable from the start. Through their banter and flirtatious dialogue I could see how their connection could lead to more than a sexual relationship. Their honesty about their beliefs and their easy acceptance of each other was the first step in revealing how great Seth and Darren were for each other. The author did a great job of developing that bond between them throughout the story by having them share their past, their doubts and their lust.

    Although Covet Thy Neighbor is the fourth book in the Tucker Springs series it can be read as a stand alone. I am looking forward to Never a Hero, the next book in the series, scheduled for a May release.

    I received this title from Riptide Publishing through NetGalley in exchange of my honest opinion.
