**ARC provided through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**
I could easily see this book being made into a Hallmark movie, with more of a PG-13 rating, of course.
Hermia Lysander Argarapolis, Mia for short, is housesitting a pretty posh apartment. The only complaint she has is the guy next door. His female companions tend to get a little loud, forcing Mia to turn up her music. Which, in turn, causes him to call security. The owner of the apartment tells her if she gets one more call from security, she's fired. The problem is, Mia is a little scatterbrained, and she completely forgot to set the timer for the bread she put in the oven. Then, when the smoke from the oven causes the alarm to go off, she totally forgot to turn off the water she was running for her bath. Good thing a hunky neighbor stopped by to help. That is, until she realizes the neighbor offering his assistance is the one who calls security on her.
Michael Anderson is a hot shot CEO, who plans on being a bachelor forever. His company is the only thing he wants to be responsible for. But his therapist talks him into dog-sitting, so he'll stop being 'rigid'. He's so good at maintaining control in situations that, when he thinks his neighbor set the building on fire, he was already making plans to buy new clothes. However, he discovers she has only burnt something in the oven and tries to make sure none of the water from the overflowing tub seeps over into his apartment. He was only around Mia for a minute, but there was just something about her that makes him feel responsible for her too.
Mia's impulsiveness and Michael's controlling personality clash from time to time. It was a light-hearted read, not too much drama, but just enough to keep the story going. Romantic, at times, and the Queen B's were so funny, especially Gladys. There is an HEA ending and it can be read as a standalone. Recommended to fans of Romance!
