THE PLAYER by Stefanie London

Emery Daniels has no time for the heartbreaker next door…but the tension between them is impossible to resist! Don’t miss the sizzling final installment of the Close Quarters miniseries by USA TODAY bestselling author Stefanie London!
Rowan Lively is the neighbor from hell, with a parade of beautiful women only too happy to stroke his inflated ego. And I can’t take another night of listening to him making those noises through the paper-thin walls. I need to design my latest board game, not fantasize about my gorgeous neighbor.
Anonymous fun with a costumed hottie at a gaming conference is a sexy distraction from terrible online reviews and conflicts with my creative team. I’m craving a physical release to put Rowan out of my mind. Until our true identities are revealed, and I find myself in a compromising position with my neighborly nemesis…
Now I can barely look Rowan in the eye, and the sparks between us are hot enough to burn down the building. Soon we’re waking the neighbors with our passionate games and working together on a new exhibit for his Melbourne art gallery. And even though I know the score—this is just a fling—I can’t help wondering…will he ever play for keeps?

THE PLAYER by Stefanie London

Eileen's Thoughts

Emery and Rowan’s enemies to lovers relationship in The Player by Stefanie London, book five in her Close Quarters series, was a hot, sizzling, story of neighbors misjudging one another.

Rowan Lively is the neighbor from hell, according to Emery Daniels; with his parade of beautiful women willing to stroke his inflated ego. With paper thin walls between them, she can heard every, single, noise from his apartment, and she does mean every. Instead of fantasizing about her hot neighbor she needs to finish designing her latest board game.

Anonymous fun with a costumed guy at a gaming conference gives Emery the distraction she needed from the awful online reviews and the conflicts with her creative team. At least until she discovers herself in a compromising position with her next door nemesis. Rowan is not willing to leave all those sparks and the sizzle behind, instead convincing Emery to join him in setting their sheets aflame with passionate games and working together on a new exhibit for his Melbourne art gallery.

Being together, getting to know one another, leads to a journey of self-discovery and confidence building; learning to trust oneself. Will this journey lead them down the path of forever or a short fling and breaking hearts.
