Two feuding second-grade teachers find themselves as unlikely allies (and neighbours) in this rivals-to-lovers romance by Sarah Adams, author of the TikTok sensation, The Cheat Sheet and The Rule Book.

Emily Walker hates having her carefully crafted world disrupted by anyone, most of all her legendary nemesis, Jack Bennett. He's the opposite of the wonderful heroes she dreams up in her double life as a romance writer, which is why Emily was perfectly happy when Jack left Rome, Kentucky, mid-school year, with his fiancée. The last thing Emily saw coming was Jack's return at the start of the summer after calling off the wedding and ending his relationship, but he's here to stay - as her colleague and her neighbour.

Jackson Bennett is glad to be back, eager to renovate his house and work on the next mystery novel under his bestselling pen name. But when he realizes he's now neighbours with the one woman who has always pushed his buttons, he discovers something he's even more excited for - thwarting Emily and her petty plans to sabotage his return.

With their chemistry-fuelled animosity at an all-time high, Emily accidentally sends an email to their school's principal that could reveal her secret literary side hustle. She needs to steal back her manuscript, and Jack - she hates to admit - is just the man to help her. Surprisingly, Jack agrees. Will their unlikely alliance put an end to their rivalry? Or could it lead to a steamy plot twist they never saw coming?
