Well, that was hotter than I expected. I read this while waiting on the playground to pick up my daughter, and's a tip. Don't read it on the playground. I kept glancing around thinking people could tell why I kept uncrossing and crossing my legs. Goodness me, that was way too steamy to read without a drink, and way too steamy for the playground. O.o

So Tarney is just settling in to watch her hot fireman neighbor get ready to workout

Delicious Fantasy Come True!

What a cute story, Eden Summers has captured the reality of how when we least expect it, fate throws a curve ball and the perfect delicious sexual fantasy can come true. Though the story is short, the connection between the characters kept me glued to the pages with their intense undeniable sexual desires for each other. I found the story humorous at how Tarney busted actions brought forth her forever wanting fantasy of having Ethan. Ethan was deliciously described an
This review can also be found on my blog.

Any book cover with a smoking hot firefighter on it is bound to grab my attention, so when I saw this cover, I couldn’t resist. This was my first read by Eden Summers, and after this, it won’t be my last.

Ever since Tarney received her first kiss from Ethan, her best friend’s brother, she’s had a crush on him. But a warning from Jenna to stay away from him has kept her from acting on her desires. Besides, Ethan has a girlfriend now, so either way he’s off

Talk about finally getting her man. Sneaking a Peek starts with your average girl, Tarney, and her crush on her best friend's brother (who also happens to be a fireman and SEXY as hell...and her next door neighbor). AND Oh Em Gee!!! She watches him and when one of her peeping tina sessions goes kablooey he and her find themselves getting hot and heavy. Things take a wrong turn once their post-loving brains cool off and his ex shows up. There's a misunderstanding and lots of frustration on both s ...more

Novellas can be like fast food meals sometimes. You know you are hungry for something good but it needs to be quick and then after you digest it you find that you are still hungry for more. Well I can guarantee you that you won’t have that problem with Sneaking a Peek! Eden Summers cooks you up a storyline filled with wonderful characters, biting humor and sizzling sex scenes. I came away with my appetite fulfilled and a smile on my face at the end of this one and you will too!

Decided to give this a re-read as I wanted something to fill in a short amount of time. I forgot how good this story is. LOVED IT!!! again and since its been a little while the story felt fresh and new.

I love the characters and their romance is not swift its ever building from Tarney's childhood/teenage crush to the present and Ethan's hidden affection for her waiting for his moment to bring them together.

You completely feel the love between the two characters, every emotion and touch is real an

Wowza! What a great shortie by Eden Summers! This is now the second story of Eden Summers' that I've read and I continue to be blown away by her fun and sassy style.

Sneaking a Peek has a pretty straight forward plot. Tarney has been crushing on her BFF's older brother, Ethan, for years. Unfortunately her girl wasn't too happy about that so Tarney did her best to hide her adoration. Thank goodness that Ethan and Tarney lived next door to each other. That way she

I was looking for a short, sexy, steamy read for over the weekend and I definitely found what I was looking for in "Sneaking a Peek" by Eden Summers.
The cover alone had me wanting to read it and then I read the description and I knew it was a book I needed to squeeze in before reviews for blog tours.

"Sneaking a Peek" is about a guy and a girl who have had feelings for each other since they were teens. They never hooked up though because of a certain person

Tarney has had the longest crush on her best friend's older brother, Ethan, since she was sixteen. Now, he's her neighbor. Her very hot neighbor. She doesn't want to ruin her friendship with Ethan's sister so she doesn't act on her attraction...or naughty thoughts. However, that doesn't mean she can't look, right? A Peeping Tom, Tarney has been secretly watching Ethan's workouts from the shadows of her porch at night. However, one night her clumsy balance sends Ethan running to her aid and quick ...more

Sometimes you just need a quick fix of smoking hot romance to read. I have been reading serious themed books for a few weeks now and Sneaking A Peek was just what I needed for a break from those serious novels.

Tarney and Ethan have known each other for a long time. She is best friends with Ethan's sister, Jenna. Jenna warned Ethan a long time ago that her best friend is a line he was not too cross. She also told Tarney that she didn't want her hooking up with Ethan. Out of respect for Jenna, ne

Sneaking a Peek is a novella that follows Ethan, a firefighter, and Tarney, his admirer. There's not a whole lot of detail or backstory to the characters other than the knowledge that Tarney is best friend's with Ethan's sister and that the hero and heroine have known each other virtually all their lives. This fun little piece moves along very quickly and is mostly action/hot steamy sex. Eden Summers even manages to work in some conflict/plot amongst the sexy t

When Tarney finds herself caught in the act of spying on her sexy firefighter next door neighbor while he works out she knows that she is in real trouble when Ethan doesn't want to scold her he wants to hold her and a whole lot more.

It's the often told tale of younger sisters best friend is hot for older brother or said best friend. The way Ethan and Tarney get together however is a funny twist and makes this not only a very hot read but funny and charming as well.

Recommends it for: Romance readers
It was short (but not too short) but it packed a good bit of emotion into it with Tarney having been in love with Ethan (her best friends older brother) since she was sixteen and not realising he'd loved her back all that time but her best friend had kept them apart, saying that her best friend obviously changed her mind on the matter as she ended up helping get them together in a way! They didn't have a smooth transition to being a couple but I'm glad Tarney gave him a chance and heard him out!

What a sweet, smoking hot short story!!!! This was my first time reading anything from Ms. Eden Summers, but it won’t be the last.

I was delighted in the connection that Tarney (what a cool name) and Ethan had from the very beginning. From the humorous actions of Tarney at the start of the book, till the delicious erotic scenes at the end, the book a superb, quick read, that I’m sure I will be reading again!

So I'm a bit biased, as I have the magnificent fortune of being one of Ms. Summers' crit partners, BUT with all the honesty I can portray through the internet allow me to tell you that this is a hilarious, romantic, sexy romp that will have you laughing while you're... uh... we'll stick with the laughing for the review; you'll get what I mean when you read it.

Absolutely, positively adored it!!!

There’s nothing better than enjoying one’s solitude on the front porch on a Friday the dark. With a glass of moscato in hand and a good set of eyes for “ogling” the fireman next door, doing his daily workout. Bliss…until she finds herself in a precarious situation and low and behold, Ethan comes to her rescue. How on earth is she going to get herself out of this sticky situation? When it comes to her best friend’s brother, things could get awkward.

Sneaking A Peak by Eden Summers is a very hot read with sexy fireman Ethan Reid and girl next door Tarney Jensen. I loved Eden's writing style. She manages to pack romance, slight drama, humor, and some hot erotic scenes in a novella. Quick read but definitely worth it, highly recommend!!!

The sex was hot, yes, but I guess it just didn't do it for me after reading so many fantastic M/M books recently. Just another boring boy/girl plot. I'm sure it will be fun again for me one day, but until then, I'm going to drown myself in all the fabulous boy/boy angsty goodies available.

“Does it hurt now?" he asked, his tone rough and seductive.
"No." She shook her head again and sighed, trying to pretend his touch didn't make her uncomfortably wet.
He grinned. "So...what's with the heavy breathing?”
