Blurb:

Jenna West has no idea what she might have done to her new tenant Mike Hightower. He's surly and hateful every single time they meet, and he looks at her as though he despises her.

He does despise her. She's from the Middle East, and people like her killed his friend Ramirez when the army sent them to Iraq.

Will the power of love work its magic to soften Mike's bitter hatred, or will he ignore his growing attraction for his pretty landlady?

I like his mother and I'm enjoying getting the backstory of how he ended up in the apartment. Great snippet! Very true to life conversation, I thought.

Teresa Cypher said...

Oh boy, that last line is a humdinger! I'm really liking this story.

Charmaine Gordon said...

A reader always feels what Elaine has written. So natural and believable.

Christina Ochs said...

I wonder what would happen if he came clean to his mom?

Nancy Gideon said...

He's getting pushed into a corner he can't find comfortable. But facing his prejudices will force him to confront his pain. A difficult situation.

Ed Hoornaert said...

I had wondered why he took the apartment since his prejudice was so virulent.

Amy Braun said...

Very interesting!

Caitlin Stern said...

Yeah, I get the feeling he's stuck with the apartment that has company he doesn't like.

Hywela Lyn said...

Looks like he might have to swallow his prejudce and just take the appartment on offer!

He should talk to his mom. Then she can whoop him up the side of his head. LOL
