The Guy Next Door

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! I hope you’re 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 doesn’t 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 ‘Ready, Set, Jett;’ 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 ‘persuades’ her to let him come along with her on her spring break vacation. He just doesn’t realize exactly how much more he wants from her until their trip is well underway. ‘Gail’s Gone Wild’ from Donovan has single mom Gail Chapman taking her daughter and her daughter’s best friend to Key West for their spring break to make sure they don’t 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 doesn’t trust easily anymore, but he definitely wants Gail. The only problem is that he’s kept something important from her, and Gail isn’t all that wild about men who lie to her. Dahl’s ‘Just One Taste’ has brewery owner Eric Donovan hooking up with Beth Cantrell at a local business expo. Only Beth thinks he’s his carefree brother Jamie, and Eric isn’t too sure about getting involved with a woman who runs a sex shop. I quite enjoyed Lori Foster’s story, with the sexy, determined Jett out to get his woman for good. I liked Donovan’s story much more than I’ve enjoyed her recent novels, as Jesse is yummy, and Gail’s daughter hilarious. I would have liked Dahl’s story much better if it had a satisfactory ending, rather than being a prequel to an upcoming release. For the first two stories, I’m giving this one four of Cupid’s five arrows.

Until next time, happy reading!
