L. C. Carey grew up spending the summer hiding out in the woods behind Grandma's house in the mountains of North Carolina, reading books and watching the squirrels chase each other through the trees. It wasn't long before reading became writing, and while the woods were only a summer haven, they always felt like the best setting for romance. Today L. C. writes tales of handsome, honorable heroes, with all their human flaws, and revels in the romance of lovers finding each other, and themselves, as they struggle to find their happily ever after.

How can a man work when his sexy neighbor is always naked?
Quaid Marshall's life has hit rock bottom. He's lost the most recent of his dead-end jobs, has been evicted from his apartment, and if not for the charity of his sister, he'd be living under the overpass in a cardboard box. Instead, she's loaned him the use of her Smoky Mountain ski cabin in the woods of North Carolina so he can finish the screenplay he's been avoiding finishing for two years. Since the day he drove the car into that tree, killing his fiancé, David. The day Quaid's life went to hell.
With nothing left to lose, Quaid's determined to finish the stupid screenplay and enter it in the ScreenWay Magazine contest, with its $25,000 grand prize. He knows it's stupid to rely on a contest for income, but his bossy baby sister insists he try, and she's the one paying the bills...
But it isn't going well. His sister neglected to tell him about the next-door neighbor...the incredibly hot, incredibly tall, incredibly buff next-door neighbor...the one who likes to sunbathe in the raw. The one with the incredible package nestled in neatly trimmed dark curls. How the hell was Quaid supposed to write a horror script when all he could think of was the sexy opening of a romantic comedy? And how the hell was he supposed to look himself in the eye every morning in the mirror when he felt so disloyal to David's memory?

I loved this story. It was really different. It was really funny/wacky in some places, and yet the story itself was serious and made me cry in other places but it had a happy ending for everyone. I can't wait to read the next book from this author.
Just the right amount of humor and sexiness for me--and so heartwarming! By the end I couldn't get the smile off my face. Touching and funny. Loved it!
