Two neighbors—strangers—with one thing in common—they share a fence.
But is that the only thing they share?
Nathan Fraser lives a solitary life, never letting anyone get too close. It’s safer that way.
Kourtney Whyte hides from the world and behind her work, too afraid to really live her life to the fullest. Rejection is what she knows best.
But one night, the sound of her soft voice and the tantalizing aroma of her evening meal, prove too enticing for Nathan to ignore.
So begins their unconventional relationship—talking, learning, texting, and gradually opening up to one another, all over the fence.
That is, until the day Nathan braves the high fence to protect Kourtney from her past, and changes everything forever.
Can they move forward together, without the buffer of the fence?
Or will their pasts prove to be too much of a barrier?
“What are you doing?” She hissed. “I’m in the tub.”
“I can see that.” I smirked. “How hot do you have the water, Kourtney? You’re doing a great imitation of a cherry tomato right now.” Leaning down, I dipped my finger in, only to find a pleasant warmth, not the boiling temperature I expected.
“Hmm. The temperature is fine. Why are you so red? Are you okay?”
“Nathan. I. Am. In. The. Tub. Naked.”
“You’re all covered up.”
“Underneath the bubbles I’m not.”
“Ah. I see. I have embarrassed you,” I mused. “How ungentlemanly of me.”
She glared at me. I offered her the glass of wine. She accepted with a frown, putting it down on the ledge of the tub.
“I’ll even the playing field.” Looking innocent, I smirked and dragged my shirt over my head, throwing it over my shoulder.
As I reached for the button on my jeans she sat upright, the bubbles beginning to dislodge around her body. Her voice was a few octaves higher and way louder than I was used to hearing. “What are you doing?”
“Getting naked. I thought it would make you feel better. We’d be equal.” I winked as I started pushing off my jeans.
“Stop! Stop it right now!” She looked at me with shocked eyes.
“I don’t want you naked!”
“That’s what your mouth is saying. But your eyes are saying something altogether different.”
