Daphney Clarke can’t stand the cocky footballer next door. But after one steamy hallway kiss, Zander is convinced that “neighbors-with-benefits” would be a much better game to play than “neighbor wars”. Only question is, who will be the winner?

The cocky footballer next door has some serious game…
luckily, Daphney Clarke knows how to play.
Zander Williams is the hot new American determined to take European football by storm. His head is so big, it barely fits under his backwards hat. And when he’s recruited to one of the biggest up and coming clubs in London, he’s certain to make his name known.
Managing the building where they live is only one of Daphney’s many jobs. It’s why she has zero patience for the obnoxious American on the other side of the wall who makes the most ungodly noises and likes to answer his door in nothing but a pink tea towel.
Tensions build and after one steamy hallway kiss, neighbor wars quickly shifts into neighbors-with-benefits and that’s a battle they both intend to win.
But Daphney doesn’t know the real reason Zander is in London and now she’s stuck in the middle of a game she didn’t even know she was playing.
“Boop, boop, boop,” a deep voice echoes much too close to my face, and my eyes fly open in terror as I catch sight of Zander Williams’s finger by my nose.
“What are you doing?” I exclaim, scrambling up off my sofa and standing behind the arm of it to put some space between us. I hold my chunky blanket out in front of me like it’s somehow going to protect me from the psychopath currently standing in my flat.
Zander holds his hands up defensively, his eyes wide. “I didn’t mean to scare you!”
I blink back at him as my sleep-fogged mind clears, and I take in the surroundings of my flat. I reach up and touch my nose. “Did you just touch my nose?”
“I booped it.” An awkward smile spreads across his face as he grips the back of his neck. “You were sleeping so cutely. I thought it’d be a funny way to wake you up.”
“Funny?” I repeat, forking my fingers into my messy bun and glancing down to make sure I wasn’t having another wardrobe malfunction in front of him. “You thought it would be funny to break into my flat and touch me?”
His face falls. “Well, when you put it like that, it sounds creepy.”

We got a little hint at this story in Santino’s book, which makes sense because Santino was the only one who kind of knew the secret that Zander was keeping. At least until Zander gave in and told his two fellow new teammates, both also from America. So, I also read an early copy of this, and so the references I read were different than what are in the final copy. And unfortunately, some of the notes I took that I wanted to talk about in my review were over those references, so I’ll have to leave out those because I don’t think they’re in the fixed published version.
There was so much I loved in this one though that connected me back to the beginning of the Harris brothers series. First of all, the website that Zander used to do some research on his new teammates and coach’s family, harrishoandproud dot com. lol I have my Harris Ho and Proud shirt! Maybe I’ll get it out and wear it again soon! I also loved how the author pulled in the tire place both from her own writing experiences as well as from her Wait With Me series, based on that whole experience.
But it wasn’t just the Harris brothers, this always brought back the London Lovers series, because Daphney is Hayden’s little sister. Now reading about her made me want to go back and read all those books again so I can look for hints of her.
Now, Zander is totally going to be my favorite after Camden in world of Amy Daws leading men. He can be my newest book boyfriend. His sense of humor, his silly way of being crude at times, all of it was so much fun. I also loved how Daphney dealt with him. Their connection was fun and perfect at times, well most of the time I guess, all of the time actually. Their big climactic scene that took them apart at the end totally had me in tears. But after, when the train started to get back on the track towards the HEA I was waiting for, I’m pretty sure I had a smile on my face the whole time I was reading.
I love the Harris family. They remind me a lot in how my family is. We don’t see “step” or “half” relations. If you marry into our family, or start dating someone, you are immediately folded in and become important and included. I think that’s one thing I love so much about the Harris family. Even with the Harris shakedown to the men trying to date their relatives, when they find out there is new family or friends, or framily as Daphney’s friend Phoebe called it, they are loyal.
What a wonderful book, loved it so much!
