Benji Rao, a hard-working welder from the Pacific Northwest, is recovering from a life-threatening and life-changing injury at a posh California resort. Trouble is, he’s miserable. His friends are worried, his panic attacks are getting worse, and the guy in the bungalow next to his is none other than Jamie Durham—the kind of neighbor who plays music loud, blows everybody’s breakers, and doesn’t care what people think of him.

But there’s more to Jamie than late nights, a huge inheritance, and a wild reputation. After endless bad press, Jamie longs for a chance to live a normal life, without the rumors and innuendo, and without his growing concern that he might be going crazy.

When Ben finds himself desperate for a date and Jamie is the only option, Jamie can’t believe his luck—a date with Ben would be as normal as it gets. But when the date doesn’t exactly go as planned, Ben and Jamie must overcome their personal demons to find their way to love.

My View:

This book was quite aptly named. The romance in this book is fine. The characters were fine. The plot was fine. The writing was fine. All was fine. Nothing great but still interesting.

Ben Rao is on vacation after an accident where he nearly died but his rest is being ruined by the guy in the cabin next door—Jamie Durham. This falls along the trope I call I Hate You, I Want You, I Love You. First they fight, then they fool around, then they fall in love.

Even though they weren’t anything special I enjoyed the characters and felt the chemistry between Ben and Jamie. I especially liked Ben’s friends, Nate and Bree. Anybody would be lucky to have friends like them.

There was a mystery aspect that was handled well. It wasn’t that hard to figure out what was going on, but I enjoyed watching the resolution unfold.
