A brand new enemies to lovers story from author S.A. Clayton set in her new Harbour Cove Series!
Drew Mitchell has spent the past ten years rebuilding his image, leaving behind the bullied kid he was back in high school.
But when he comes home one night to find a note from his new neighbor, warning of some construction noise, he comes face to face with his worst nightmare.
Katie Murray.
The Queen B*tch.
The girl who made his life hell for four years is now living next door, infiltrating the walls he’s expertly crafted to keep women like her out.
But when he finds out why she’s really home, everything he thought he knew about her begins to shift and starts to wonder if maybe appearances can be deceiving, and she’s not the person he thought she was.




This is a new to me author and the cover and blurb of this book caught my interest from the very first time I saw them.

What do you do when the mean girl who caught your attention in high school moves in next door? For Drew Mitchell, ignoring her is not an option since that attraction never faded and only intensifies as the days go by. It doesn’t hurt that he’s now a very appealing male specimen that make her drool.

Katie Murray never planned to return to the small town she ran away from as soon as she could, but fate has other plans for her. She does not expect a warm welcome because of her past, but she most certainly does not expect the attraction that flares between her and her neighbor.

This is an insta-love story and I do have to say it’s a good series starter with very engaging characters. Drew is a departure from the typical suave, rich and arrogant male, but was still a very likable character. Kate had valid reasons for her behavior and the events that unfold will leave you feeling very sympathetic to her.

The only downside for me is the fact that from the very first page, everything was going at warp speed and there was a missed opportunity for the characters to have more depth.



About S.A. Clayton

S.A. Clayton lives in a small town outside of Toronto, Canada with her husband and her scary large collection of books that seem to take over every room.
She has worked on both sides of the publishing industry, both in a bookstore and for actual publishing companies. Although she loved both for different reasons, she found that writing was her true passion and has spent the last few years breaking into the industry as best she can.
She is a lover of all things romance and began her writing journey in her late twenties. Since then, she has immersed herself in the romance genre and couldn't be happier.
When she's not writing or reading, she enjoys binging a great Netflix show (Stranger Things anyone?), baking (because who doesn't love cookies!) and spending time with her family
