The Player Next Door by K.A. Tucker

From the international bestselling author of The Simple Wild and Ten Tiny Breaths comes a new second-chance, hate-to-love romance.

Scarlet Reed has returned to Polson Falls, convinced that twelve years away is long enough to shed her humiliating childhood identity as the town harlot's daughter. With a teaching job secured and an adorable fixer-upper to call home, things in her life are finally looking up.

That is, until she finds out that Shane Beckett lives next door.

Shane Beckett, the handsome and charismatic high school star quarterback who smashed her heart. The lying, cheating player who was supposed to be long gone, living the pro football dream and fooling women into thinking he's Prince Charming. Shane Beckett, who is as attractive as ever and flashing his dimples at her as if he has done no wrong.

Scarlet makes it abundantly clear that old wounds have not been forgotten. Neighbors they may be, but friends they most certainly are not. She won't allow herself to fall for the single father and firefighter again, no matter how many apologies he offers, how many times he rushes to her aid, or how hard he makes her heart pound.

But as she spends more time with him, she begins to fear that maybe she's wrong. Maybe Shane has changed.

And maybe this time she's the one playing herself—out of a chance at true happiness.

They Player Next Door is a sweet and sexy read about second chances at love. Second chances are a favorite of mine and Scarlett and Shane didn't disappoint. 

Growing up, Scarlet and her mother were always target of bad gossip in their small town. Her mother wasn't the best mom, she had her share of bad decision relationships that ended up affecting Scarlet with her school teachers and peers. But When Shane Beckett, one of the most popular boys in school, asks her out, Scarlet thought her luck would change. Scarlet and Shane spent the summer before senior year together, but out of no where, Shane ghosts hers their senior year. 

Getting the heck out of Polson Falls, Scarlet left that life behind her. But when she is offered a teaching job years later, she ends up coming back to the hometown she hated. She bought her perfect fixer upper house and ready to start a new life. That is when she discovered the man who broker her heart all those years ago, ends up being the hottie next door.
