Lovin' Leela


A justified complaint of noise leads Leela Monroe on a wild sexual adventure in which she discovers just how easy it could be to "love thy neighbor".

Leela Monroe has had just about enough of the loud music and desperate cries of passion keeping her up all night thanks to her new neighbor next door. Ready to give him a piece of her mind, she's distracted from her complaints when Sam answers the door, throwing her off guard with his sexy smile and into a state of unyielding longing. She gives into the hot chemistry between them, enjoying sex for the first time in her life, but can a relationship based on pleasure truly amount to anything more?

He was at it again with his instrument. This was a new disturbance he liked to subject her to mostly on the weekends. She listened for a few minutes, irritated despite being impressed by his musical abilities. Maybe her sister was right. She just needed to go over there with a smile and ask for some neighbourly consideration.


Enough was enough. With her mind made up, she pushed away from the wall and walked into the bathroom. She was happy to see her mascara and eye shadow still intact, leaving only a little lip gloss to apply to her full lips before pulling her straightened, dark brown hair back into a ponytail. Her warm honey brown skin contrasted beautifully with the pink tee and yoga pants hugging her curvy frame.
Satisfied her appearance would do, she selected a pair of jewelled flip flops and left her place to find the music even louder in the hall. Filled with righteous indignation, she knocked, but the sax playing continued.

“C’mon,” she breathed, pounding harder.

“I’m coming, I’m coming,” came the deep male voice on the other side of the door.

Leela heard the lock turn and quickly plastered a fake smile on her face as the door opened.
“Excuse me…” Her sharp words dried up in her throat as her new neighbour lounged against the doorframe with the sax lying against his chest, the dark strap snug against his neck. Leela’s eyes moved up from the shiny gold instrument to the curious brown eyes studying her. Disarmed by his sexy smile, she blinked in surprise.

He was tall and tan with thick dark brown hair that was a little too long, and defined muscles visible in the dark navy blue tank top he was wearing. He wasn’t cute…he was drop dead gorgeous!

“Yes?” he asked, his fingers playing silent notes on the shiny instrument.

Leela swallowed. “I’m your next door neighbour.”

“Ahhh… I’m Sam Ryan, nice to meet you,” Sam said, extending his hand.

“Leela Monroe.” She shook his hand, instantly noticing long fingers, clean fingernails and his strong grip. “Nice to meet you.” Nervous, Leela glanced down, noting Sam’s bare feet and his muscular, slightly hairy legs. Nice.

“Was I making too much noise for you, Leela?” Sam asked, running a hand through his hair.

Flashes of the previous night raced through her mind. “I was trying to fall asleep, and I could hear you playing.” She couldn’t say anything else—definitely not what was really keeping her up at night.
