While the blurb hints that the story might be a love-hate neighbors romance, it’s really a friends to lover tale, and that’s fine too. This started out as a possible 4 star read but then it began going downhill. Theo was a sweet book boyfriend in the beginning. He’s an average guy and had a realness about him. He wasn’t a manwhore and he preferred committed relationships to meaningless hook-ups. He seemed to have a lot of integrity. Until he didn’t. While there was some good relationship build-up in the first half as the pair got to know each other, the romance got waylaid later on by two major issues.
One, the OW drama. With a chapter title like “Dealing with exes and sex-crazed co-directors” it should give readers a clue what I mean. The clichéd, scheming other women troupe cheapened the tale and made Theo appear to be lacking a backbone.
Two, the incomplete sex scenes. I don’t know what the heck was up with that. A decent editor in the contemporary romance genre should have pointed that out. Their first sex scene, ya know the thing most romances build up to, is literally skipped over. Then it’s attempted to be told via flashback the next morning in italic. Did I mention italic is really annoying to read for pages? But even the retelling gets cut short just like about all of their encounters. And this isn’t what I’d classify as a “clean romance” either so I couldn’t figure out if I was supposed to be reading an adult book or one geared towards teens.
Speaking of immature, with Joey it really showed in the ways she handled her students, didn’t cope well with her job, and thought jeans were a proper dress code for a professional in an authority role. I had to agree with her on one thing though; teaching wasn’t the career for her.
Told via Joey and Theo’s alternating first person POV, this is a light-hearted tale that’s silly rather than funny, and by the end I was pretty blah on it.
Theo Crawford is getting over a bad break up and has lost his place to live until Patrick says he can stay there for two months while he is in China. Now with any luck he can get his play produced over the summer and get some good luck. But first he has to convince the girl next door to star in his play.
Will Theo be able to convince Joey to star in his place and see him as more than the gay neighbor? But when someone else begins to put the moves on Theo will he lose Joey forever?
This was a great romantic comedy that will have you laughing at some parts and waiting to see what happens next in others.
I liked Joey and thought it was funny how she thought Theo was gay and how everything progressed. I felt bad that she was not enjoying her job and how discouraged she was with everything going on at her high school. I loved that she took a chance with being in the play, even though her mother totally disapproved.
Theo was awesome and I thought it was so funny when Joey thought he was gay. I loved when Joey thought he was cheating on Patrick. I felt bad for Theo with what was happening with his play producer, Birdie.
The chemistry between Theo and Joey was through the roof and I thought it was funny that Theo was trying to use his play to get closer to Joey. I was worried when Alyssa showed back up and the effect that it had on Theo.
Great story and I loved the ending!
