This year is all about healing the heart, Scorpio. It’s time to leave negative attitudes and stoic facades at the door and let others see the real, more vulnerable you.
Percy Freedman is not grieving. Absolutely not, take that back at once. No, he’s entirely sure that selling his dead aunt’s home and leaving the neighbors he’s known for years is the sane thing to do. Who in their right mind would keep the house that smells like all the hugs he’ll never have again?
Nobody, that’s who.
Well, except his cul-de-sac neighbors. They all seem to think some paint and new furniture will clean the emotional slate. They all want him to stay.
Even his nemesis, Callaghan Glover.
Especially his nemesis, Callaghan Glover.
Lured into a game of Sherlock Gnomes, Percy finds himself hanging out with his neighbors more than might be considered healthy. Along with juggling new and surprising verbal grenades from Cal, and his burgeoning friendship with Gnomber9, Percy is starting to wonder if selling might have been the grief talking after all . . .
That’s right, Scorpio. With a little patience, heartbreak might be a thing of the past . . .

This was too cute! I love Cal and Percy so freaking much! I went in thinking that nothing would top Jamie and Theo but these guys.... Anyta has this way of pulling you in and making you fall in love with all the characters and I love it!
Percy is scared to ket anyone in because they always leave him. So he's closed off his heart, not letting anyone so they can't leave him. He's even started leaving them before he gets left. When his Aunt dies and he goes back to her house.... his neighbor may just be the one to change his way of thinking.
This also features a Demipan character if you're looking for a book with that label. There is also a gay character... duh this is a m/m romance. Also it's a HEA ending, which I love to death! The banter is great between the characters and I just loved the tension in the air. This is a great book to this standalone series and I highly recommend it!
