The Guy Next Door

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! I hope youíre all staying safe and dry this week. Mother Nature has sent quite a lot of rain our way this week, unfortunately leaving our basement rather wet. The rainy weather is good for finding reading time, but when water is indoors where it doesnít belong, that is no good, nor is it good for reading.

Nevertheless, I have still found reading time this week to put a little bit of a dent in the stack of March romances here on my desk. This time out, I have the anthology The Guy Next Door (HQN, purchased) with stories by Lori Foster, Susan Donovan and Victoria Dahl. Foster leads this one off with ĎReady, Set, Jett;í with teacher Natalie Alexander enjoying a no-strings- attached thing with her sexy next door neighbor, Jett Sutter. Only Jett wants more than regular booty calls, and he Ďpersuadesí her to let him come along with her on her spring break vacation. He just doesnít realize exactly how much more he wants from her until their trip is well underway. ĎGailís Gone Wildí from Donovan has single mom Gail Chapman taking her daughter and her daughterís best friend to Key West for their spring break to make sure they donít get themselves into trouble. Only Gail finds herself having a hot fling with the sexy man who lives next door to their rented cottage. Jesse Batista doesnít trust easily anymore, but he definitely wants Gail. The only problem is that heís kept something important from her, and Gail isnít all that wild about men who lie to her. Dahlís ĎJust One Tasteí has brewery owner Eric Donovan hooking up with Beth Cantrell at a local business expo. Only Beth thinks heís his carefree brother Jamie, and Eric isnít too sure about getting involved with a woman who runs a sex shop. I quite enjoyed Lori Fosterís story, with the sexy, determined Jett out to get his woman for good. I liked Donovanís story much more than Iíve enjoyed her recent novels, as Jesse is yummy, and Gailís daughter hilarious. I would have liked Dahlís story much better if it had a satisfactory ending, rather than being a prequel to an upcoming release. For the first two stories, Iím giving this one four of Cupidís five arrows.

Until next time, happy reading!
