It started with a broken condom. Sounds like a nightmare, but I would never take it back. Now, I have my insanely high IQ son. Oh, but I’ve learned a lot since getting pregnant then dumped at nineteen. For the past seven years, I’ve become an architect, building walls around my heart. Behind a computer screen, I hide, writing my risqué blog, discussing the perils of love and sex, while controlling every aspect of my boudoir. I like having the upper hand, especially when I tie men up. Nothing and no one, not even my idiotic crush on my neighbor, will ever break me from maintaining this distance.
One accident. Just a split second in time when my body was bent beyond physical limits, and now I’m a has-been with a cane. No more million-dollar contracts, no more speeding down the rink with a puck on my stick, no more groupies fawning over me. Nothing. I am nothing. But I’m not inhumane, which is why I rush over to my neighbor’s to help when I see her fall and break her ankle. I’ve never wanted anything in my life. Everything’s been handed to me on a silver platter. But I want Zoe. And I think she wants me. Problem is she won’t let me in. I have to find a way to tear down the walls surrounding her heart.

Not sure why the “bad” is in the title of this book because all I read was “oh so very good” neighbors! Leif is six foot five, 250 pounds of solid muscle, who has a hockey career ending injury so he walks with a cane. Zoe is his neighbor, a single mom of the most adorable 7-year-old named Neil. Their story is all about getting to know each other, breaking down barriers, and learning to trust and to love. Neil is whip smart and Leif and Neil form a bond and a friendship that will melt your heart. Leif and Zoe take a bit longer to break down each other’s walls (around their hearts) but eventually, they get there. I’m not going to recap the story for you – know that it really moves along, is heartwarming, at times heart breaking, and yes, sometimes I just wanted to sit these two down and say, “TALK to each other!!” but they are always endearing. I thoroughly enjoyed these two – okay, three! – and both Zoe’s and Leif’s families, and highly recommend this story. It is also hawt, just like I’ve come to expect in a Red L. Jameson story.
