This year is all about healing the heart, Scorpio. It’s time to leave negative attitudes and stoic facades at the door and let others see the real, more vulnerable you.
Percy Freedman is not grieving. Absolutely not, take that back at once. No, he’s entirely sure that selling his dead aunt’s home and leaving the neighbors he’s known for years is the sane thing to do. Who in their right mind would keep the house that smells like all the hugs he’ll never have again?
Nobody, that’s who.
Well, except his cul-de-sac neighbors. They all seem to think some paint and new furniture will clean the emotional slate. They all want him to stay.
Even his nemesis, Callaghan Glover.
Especially his nemesis, Callaghan Glover.
Lured into a game of Sherlock Gnomes, Percy finds himself hanging out with his neighbors more than might be considered healthy. Along with juggling new and surprising verbal grenades from Cal, and his burgeoning friendship with Gnomber9, Percy is starting to wonder if selling might have been the grief talking after all . . .
That’s right, Scorpio. With a little patience, heartbreak might be a thing of the past . . .

“Scorpio Hates Virgo” contains sarcasm, sexual content, a slightly sappy HEA, and an unhealthy obsession with dinosaurs.
Review by Morgan
If you were a fan of the first book in the series, you’ll love this as well. It’s full of witty dialog, UST and snark.
It’s fairly low steam and it takes most of the book for our MCs to even kiss, but our guys are very funny together.

Review by Dee
This is a fun frenemies-to-lovers story! I loved the banter between Percy and Cal, Both guys met several years before and sort of rubbed each other the wrong way. Later on, (years really), Percy has to go back to the home he shared with his aunt, to prep it for sale, when he meets Cal again. The 2 men begin a slow friendship to love which is fun to watch. Both men grow in different ways – Cal, who is straight- accepts his attraction to Percy; and Percy learns to trust that not everyone leaves. Cal’s family and the neighbourhood residents add to this fun story.
