Series: Roommate Romps, #4
Release Date: July 29th, 2021
Sutton Barnes thinks he’s Prince Charming, but he’s really the Prince of Hell.
He’s egotistical. A user. A complete douchecanoe.
And unfortunately now my coworker.
Did I mention he’s also my new roommate?
It’s all because I can’t turn down a challenge.
I never have, and I won’t start now.
When Sutton bets me I can’t live in the same apartment as him and resist the “temptation”…well, game on.
He’ll be the first to cave.
There is no way I’m falling for his charm…not again.
I’m sad that we’ve reached the end of these romps! I have loved these characters, their friendships and all of their romps. And the last in the series is loaded with lots of great tropes, which made it a fun read. If you’ve read the series from the beginning, then you already know Dean Evans (from Loathe Thy Neighbor), because his sister Holland is the one leading the story in Tempt Thy Neighbor and she’s all kinds of awesome.
After quitting her job with her family company, Holland Evans decides that she’s done working for her father and goes out to find something more. Sure, add to that her new boyfriend has been screwing her best friend so Holland is not necessarily in the best place right now. She moves in with her brother and girlfriend (the aforementioned Dean and River) as she job and apartment hunts. Sutton Barnes has been ousted from his wealthy family after a punch or two in a public setting that embarrassed the whole family. So that means he needs to find himself a job and a place to live too!
“But more than that, I hate that even though Sutton Barnes broke my heart, I still want him.”
I really liked that Holland and Sutton have history, because it made their dislike for each other so much clearer. Having grown up together (as rich families do), Holland and Sutton competed for everything through high school and then hooked up a few times as adults, before everything exploded when one overhears the other talk about their money and then leaves the other at the edge of an orgasm in a coat room. I mean, their dislike stems from years and years of being around each other, which truly makes their relationship so clear.
But as fate would have it, not only do they end up working for the same company, they also end up living together. The latter is more crafty work on Sutton’s part, but it’s still so smart. But also having history means that they know what the other is like when it comes to sex, so they make a deal – they’ll live together for six months to test the waters and whoever caves first and wants more than just roommates has to move out. Simple, right?
“Even when I wanted to hate you, I still loved you. And I was still fucking scared because I had no idea what to do with it.”
In true Teagan Hunter style, Tempt Thy Neighbor is funny and filled with witty banter. These characters are entertaining, which makes it easy to sink into their story and enjoy every minute of it. Holland is sassy and feisty, she’s also not going to just sit back and let Sutton get what he wants. If anything, her drive and passion keeps her going. Despite his rich upbringing, I liked that Sutton was interested in working for his money and making his way through without the famous surname that weighs him down.
Tempt Thy Neighbor is a great addition and a wonderful way to end the Roommate Romps series, but if you haven’t picked up the other three books, do it now! They’re all available in Kindle Unlimited. You can find my reviews for the series by clicking the links below.
