Review: Tempt Thy Neighbor by Teagan Hunter (Roommate Romps #4)
Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.
There's something about Teagan Hunter's writing that just makes me keep coming back for more. While the release of Tempt Thy Neighbor marks the bittersweet end of her Roommate Romps series, I'm tickled pink that it ended on such a great note. This is the fourth and final book, and it's an enemies-to-lovers slash workplace romance. It features Holland Evans, sister of Dean Evans from Loathe Thy Neighbor (Roommate Romps book one), and Sutton Barnes, her archnemesis. They couldn't stand each other throughout high school and then spent one unexpectedly unforgettable summer afterwards, only to go their separate ways. She made the mistake of trusting him more than once, and she's learned her lesson. Now, they're not only co-workers, but they've become roommates as well. Being in such close proximity could lead them to give in to temptation...and often.
One of the reasons the enemies-to-lovers trope is a personal favorite has to do with digging in to see why there's as much animosity between the main characters. There's also the whole thing about that thin line between love and hate, and I'm all for having a ringside seat to reading how that line is crossed. Both Holland and Sutton were in transitional phases of their lives, so it was interesting how it seemed like Fate stepped in and had their paths crossing once again. There's history between them, and I quite liked the development of their relationship and their personal and professional evolutions as individual characters. Of course, being able to catch up with past characters is a bonus, and it does wrap things up well for the Roommate Romps series. As much as I'll miss it all, I look forward to seeing what this author has up next. Five stars for Tempt Thy Neighbor.
