WOW!! I devoured this story in one sitting! Carlie, a young woman living on her own, has a neighbor from hell. Sage, a handsome and eccentric young man, lives with the neighbor from hell but Carlie has never met him. Both are bullied incessantly by the guy but in Sage's case the bullying becomes physical. Every day Sage sits in the coffee shop where Carlie works; it is his safe haven from his violent roommate. Carlie is intrigued by his eccentric goth appearance and wonders about him. One night she hears strange noises outside her door......shuffling and then scratching on her door. Frightened she doesn't open her door but then she hears a male voice whisper "Miss.....can I please have a refill?" Carlie gasps in shock and thus begins one of the sweetest romances I have ever read! Please PURCHASE and read this story. The whole series is awesome....thanks Maria Bernard!
