Synopsis

Get naughty with The Neighbor in this new erotic romance serial by Ann Omasta!

Sipping chilled white wine with her best friend and spying on her super sexy neighbor, Ethan, are the highlights of Sabrina’s otherwise mundane existence. Vivid fantasies about Ethan are her sweet escape.

At what point does a platonic relationship cross the line? Is flirtation okay? What about an accidental brush of the hand? Is an intentional caress down an arm with the back of one’s fingers going too far? If Sabrina has already dipped her toe into the waters of a steamy affair, shouldn’t she jump all the way in to get it out of her system?

As she pushes the boundaries of propriety, Sabrina begins to wonder about a real-life night of passion in Ethan’s arms. Would it quench the growing thirst within her or ignite the burning flames of desire that she has kept deeply buried for so long?
