If her neighbor hadn’t moved to Florida, Leela Monroe would still have homemade banana bread and a quiet residence. The saxophone playing didn’t totally annoy Leela because her mystery neighbor was actually kind of good. However, listening to the all night sex-a-thons was getting to her, in more ways than one.

The combination of exhaustion and curiosity was too much for Leela to ignore, so she decided to march over and give the man next door a lesson in common courtesy. Moments after seeing Sam Ryan’s sexy grin and athletic body, Leela forgot all about sleep. Now all she can do is wonder if Sam is as good in bed as the moaning from his apartment suggests.

Sam persuades Leela to submit to the undeniable attraction between them, even though she’s leery. Because their relationship got hot and heavy so fast, Leela questioned Sam’s sincerity. After discovering something incriminating about Sam, Leela gives him the cold shoulder. Fortunately, Sam isn’t the type of guy to give up without a fight. At first I was annoyed by Sam’s defense and Leela’s reaction to it, but only for a second. This turning point in the story was a scenario that could actually happen and I welcomed the dose of reality. Without hesitation, Sam told Leela the truth and left the ball in her court. In this moment, any doubts I had about Sam disappeared, because he was deeper than I originally thought. I fell in lust with the spontaneous, passionate man who was Lovin’ Leela, and I know you will too.
