A stubborn peacock, a hunky carpenter and a bedroom window

Gemma White loves waking up in the morning to the promise of some morning lovemaking but not this time. Jason, her husband of ten years, has asked her for a divorce and moved to another state. Forced to fend for herself, she realizes she needs to move on. It hasn't escaped her notice that the house next door has a new owner. A very hunky one at that.

I have become quite the fan of Stephanie Bond. She always seems to find away of making you laugh through her books.

The laugh was the peacock and Gemma's "relationship" with it. Just to funny. I can she her trying to scare the thing off and it standing its ground.

An OK read. Stephanie Bond is a HUGE favorite author of mine -- and I wouldn't want to miss any of her books.

This was a bit different in the steamy book genre in that Gemma explores her inner exhibitionist *g*.

Gemma struggles with getting to know and embracing her real self after her husband divorces her. Gemma's up against her mother's and Gemma's own view of who and what she "should" be struck a nice cord with me. I guess we all go through this inner struggl
This book was just okay. It was nothing spectacular. There didn't seem to be any real connection between Gemma and Chev. Yes there was sexual attraction, but no deeper connection. It seemed like her need to be watched wouldn't allow her to make real connections with the man in her life. I had no real connection to the characters. I didn't care one way or the other if they ended up together or if she went back to her husband.
Andrea Guy
This was a fast and steamy read from Stephanie's miniseries Sex For Beginners. I finished it in a day and a half and I can't wait to mover on to the next book in the series.

It was great to read a story about the kinkier side of sex too, without it being too graphic.
A good, quick read with a predictable outcome. I enjoy Bond's books in general. In this one, Gemma, a recent divorce rediscovers her desire to be watched, much to her new neighbor's delight and frustration. He really wishes she would do more than put on a show.
Tonya Warner
Gemma rediscovers herself, and her exhabitionist side loves being on display for her neighbor, Chev. Very hot and steamy action as they, slowly, heat up things between them.

A very nice story.
Heather Chiren lucas
Hot and sexy is the best way to describe this fun read! Super quick but never wanting the thrill to be over. If only every neighbor could be so helpful post divorce!
Couldn't believe a home that needed that much work could be renovated that quickly, other than that fine.
Pretty good story, but I'm not much of an exhibitionist, so I couldn't get really into the good parts.
I was iffy at first but ended up liking it. Wonderful connection between them!!
A few good moments but overall just okay.
Can't remember. $3.60 on June 2010
