The girl next door is the one that got away. He just doesn’t know it yet. . . .
Sawyer: After my wife died, I promised myself I’d never go through the pain of losing someone again. Now I keep my flings neat, tidy, and one-time-only. Besides, my son needs me more than ever. He’s miserable in our new town, so I’m pumped when he makes friends with the kid next door—until I recognize his mom from a one-night stand. Perky and upbeat, Elle Dunning is not my type for anything other than tearing up the sheets. So why do I keep letting myself get roped into game nights and get-togethers?
Elle: It so hasn’t been my year. That’s my first thought when I see my new next-door neighbor. I never would have hooked up with Sawyer Paulson if my husband hadn’t left me for his high-school sweetheart, but because our eight-year-old boys have become best friends, I’ve got to make nice with Mr. Tall, Dark, and Silent. Yet the more time we spend together, the more Sawyer opens up. We’ve both been hurt—badly. So it’s one thing to send the kids off to sleepaway camp together. It’s quite another to promise each other a lifetime of sleepovers. . . .
Sleepover is a standalone novel with no cheating, no cliffhangers, and a satisfying happily ever after. This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
“Touching and seductive . . . a perfect blend of romantic sexiness and sweet sentimentality.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“You want to know the question I asked myself the minute I finished reading Sleepover? Why haven’t I read more of Serena Bell’s books? I’ve only read one other of her books and I absolutely loved it. I felt the same way about Sleepover. It was charming, delightful, darling, clever, and amusing.”—A Novel Glimpse (five stars)
“Serena Bell is one of my favorite authors out there! I previously read Head Over Heels and was excited to read her new book, Sleepover. You will not be disappointed picking this one up, I promise. I finished it in the span of three/four hours because it was just that good.”—Up All Night With Books Blog

When Sawyer Paulson spies his new neighbor he darn near has a panic attack, he never thought he would see her again, and now here she living right next door. She was supposed to be a one night stand, his hidden little secret, never to be heard from again... now here she introducing her eight year old son to his, and he can see a friendship blooming instantly. How did this happen, sure he has thought about her off and on since their night together and often thought he could easily go against his number one rule and repeat their night, but always remembering why that rule is in place. He doesn't do permanent, relationships, or forever, he attempted that once, had the woman of his dreams, and then she passed away and it broke his heart. But now, living right next door is Elle, the only woman who has any effect on him since his wife, and as much as he tries to abide by his rule, the harder it comes to stick to it. He just can't put himself through that again.... or can he?
From the very first page Sleepover will pull you in, and command your undivided attention; with it's deeply emotional and captivating story line you can't help but become fully invested in this one. To say that this story will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions is an understatement, it is destined to have you reaching for the Kleenex box one minute, and leave you smiling and swooning the next! I loved these characters, they both had a lot of baggage to work through, and enjoyed watching them sort it out, grow from it, and find a new happiness neither thought was possible. This was one of my favorites from this author, it had an emotional depth that surprised me and left me moved, and characters who felt real to me, and very easy to find a connection to, definitely a can't miss read!! I highly recommend this one, it's good for the heart and soul!
