His Package (Objects of Attraction #4) by Penelope Bloom
His package ended up inside my box.
Calm down, perv. My mailbox.
As soon as I saw what was inside,
I knew two things:
It belonged to my hot neighbor, and he had a dirty secret.
Normally, I was more of a cat person. As in, if I had to choose who lives, I’m going to take the cat nine times out of ten. It’s not that I particularly like cats, I just don’t particularly like most people.
My neighbor wasn’t most people. He lived in the apartment across the hall, and he was your typical, buttoned-up, fancy shoes, smells like a Calvin Klein commercial, looks like he actually flosses kind of guy. I mean, seriously? Wasn’t flossing just made up by dentists so they could go on their little power trips once every six months?
The point was, this guy very obviously had his life all put together. He was Mr. Perfect, and If you asked me, he needed to be brought down a few pegs to wallow with the rest of us.
Cue his long, thick, package penetrating my tight little mailbox.
I know. It’s absolutely sick. It was such an obvious ploy to hit on me. Forget the fact that the mail lady put it there, my neighbor and I both knew what kind of game he was playing. Oh yeah, we totally knew. It was on. It was in, if you would.
I accidentally dropped a knife on the package a few times back in my apartment. It basically sprang open on its own, and I had no choice but to look inside.
His dirty little secret was staring me right in the face. As it turned out, Mr. Perfect wasn’t so perfect. Who knew?
Hint: I knew. And I was absolutely going to enjoy every second of what was coming.
I love everything about Lillith. Absolutely my favorite person in this entire series so far.
She’s the perfect mix of intelligence and sarcasm with a bite of deviousness and just a dash of vulnerability. She has an edge to her that makes her just a lot of fun to read and when she opens up to being in a relationship with Liam it’s a beautiful thing.
Liam is the perfect partner for Lillith. He’s not very good a being stealthy, but he tries and most importantly, when he’s caught being less than truthful, he owns up to it, which Lillith appreciates. But, damn, does she make him work for it. Luckily, he was smart enough to know that he can’t treat Lillith like he has the women in his past, he has to treat her with caution.
This was truly enjoyable.
