A construction worker and a security expert tangle beneath the heated skies of San Antonio.

Pierce ‘Tuck’ Carter has been in love with his neighbour across the hall pretty much since she moved in over there. They’re good friends and do many things together but he wants to take it to the next level. Friends with benefits for starters, then beyond.

Ariel Greene is secretly crushing on her neighbour. One night after drinking she wakes the next morning in his bed and flees. Has she just crossed a line they can’t recover from?

Tuck pursues her, wanting more, however one of his exs, each of their jobs and his intense dislike of her putting herself in danger doesn’t make the road an easy one. Will Ariel and Tuck learn to work it all out before something else happens, or will it take the near loss of one to make the other realise what had almost been lost forever?

Ariel Greene has a crush on her neighbor Tuck, but he is always occupied with one woman or another. So she crushes from afar and thinks about what it would be like to be with him.

Tuck would do anything to get Ariel in his bed; he has been in love with her for a long time but had never done anything to let her know that he was interested. So imagine his surprise when after a night of drinking, Ariel kisses him and finally ends up in his bed.

Alone With You is a very delightful story, it is the second book in Aliyah Burke’s Interludes series, the first being Temporary Home. This is a stand alone book so it isn’t necessary for you to read the first book in this series; however Temporary Home is an excellent story so I do recommend you read it.

The characters in Alone With You were engaging and the chemistry between them was hot, not only in the bedroom but outside of the bedroom. This story had everything that a reader needed to wrap themselves in; there was hot sex, conflict, witty conversation and a good story. I enjoyed how Ariel’s family especially her mom referred to her military service as her ‘playing in the dirt’ instead of recognizing her as a Marine.

The characters in this story, Tuck, Ariel and Tuck’s roommate Steve reached out and pulled you into their lives. The supporting characters such as Ariel’s parents and Tuck’s ex girlfriend Daisy helped show how complex Tuck and Ariel were.

Aliyah Burke is one of my go to authors because I know that she always delivers an enjoyable story. I have yet to read something by her that I did not like; she has a way of capturing her reader from the start and immerses you in her tale.

Alone with You is a good read and one that I would recommend, hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I did.
