When I find out the hard-bodied, tattooed god from the gym lives down the hall from me you’d think I’d be thrilled, right?

Um, how about not.

Heath Noble, construction project manager, MMA fighter and resident hottie, seemed charming at first. But after introducing myself, it was all goodbye Mr. Nice Guy, hello Sir Jerkface.

I don’t know what his problem is but guys who look like him are usually jackholes anyway, so I’m out.

Except he won’t let me be out.

Now I’m sure he’s hitting on me and I’m as confused as ever.

But I know people and I’m not fooled.

I’ve got to find out what his game is before the line between my suspicion and my attraction to him becomes blurred and I do something stupid like fall for him.

Because I’ve done stupid before and I’ve only ended up getting hurt.


The minute I find out who Laney Kyle is I want her to pay for what the Kyles have put my family through.

I’m only here to get my brother out from under the Kyle’s hold by fighting in an underground ring run by her family. And if I can take all the Kyles down while I’m at it, well, so much the better.

But I have to be smooth. And believe me, I’m all about being smooth.

Or so I thought.

She’s got me so tangled up I’m not sure what I’m doing anymore.

And by the time I realize she’s an innocent bystander, I know I’ve lost her.

Now I’m going to get her back.

But she’s not giving me the chance.

Two people plus one apartment building equals one big messy situation.

And love, as usual, will just make everything messier.

Welcome to the High Rise where tenants get a new lease on love…

Oh my goodness. I loved this book so much! Lainey and Heath… sweet Jesus the are great together. This is my first book by this author and I need more! The writing was absolutely great and the story flowed beautifully. I was hooked from start to finish and I couldn’t get enough.

Heath is a very noble man. He puts family first and no matter what he takes care of his own. When his brother gets in a bit of trouble and barely makes it out alive its up to him to make it right. His heart is set on making this great for his family so Heath doesn’t expect Laney. She takes him by storm. Only one problem… her family is the enemy. Fighting the feelings he has for her he has to know the truth. Heath is absolutely freakin gorgeous. Tall tattooed built like a brick house and a fighter. And omg is he dirty. That mouth of his had me all tore up. Whew! He is now one of my favorite book boyfriends.

Laney is a innocent little thing. Her humor and banter with her friends and family is super entertaining throughout the whole book. Having dated one too many players she doesn’t want to fall for Heath. And boy does she put him through the wringer to prove himself. I did get slightly frustrated with her tests. No one is perfect and putting that much pressure on a man could drive him away. Heath is as close to perfect as a man could be though. Laney falls head over heels for the man and couldn’t stop it no matter how hard she tried. Only luck and love isn’t on their side. Deception raises it’s ugly head and things go down hill quickly. Will they make it? Will Heath be able to have the girl and save his family too? You’ll have to read and find out!

This was an amazing read. Very refreshing for me! I loved it and felt like the characters were very relatable. The story was great and the writing was also. I cant wait for more!!!!
