Max and Mimi were good characters, the banter between them fun. But, I cringed during that first sex scene! What happened to the sophisticated adults? The language resembled a teenage porn star wannabe.
A few issues of trust and a secret kept later and we get a HFN.
The other book I just skimmed. The characters were too young for me.
Author: River Laurent
Designation: Full-Length Standalone Contemporary Romance, No Cliffhanger
Reading Platform: Kindle Edition
My Rating: FIVE OUTRAGEOUSLY CUTE STARS*****
Wow! This is my first time reading River Laurent, but it certainly won't be my last! I absolutely adored this book, and the freebie bonus story included, The Bad Boy Wants Me, co-written by Georgia Le Carre and River Laurent, is the icing on the cake! I loved it too! Dear Neighbor by River Laurent is a well-crafted, fast-paced, outrageously entertaining, full-length standalone contemporary romance with a beautifully written and clearly defined his and her first person narrative (primarily Mimi with only three chapters designated as Max, although chapter 50 was incorrectly marked as Mimi and should have been designated as Max). I loved all the elements of this story, including the surprising little plot twist near the end, but my favorite component was the cast of engaging characters, who literally exploded from the pages and captured my heart. I was immediately smitten with the gorgeous, sassy, and always effervescent Mimi Young. And the mysterious but charming Max aka Maximus Black was just the cat's meow! Oh, Maximus! Yeah, apartments do tend to have very thin walls! lol... If you enjoy quirky, upbeat, and delightfully entertaining romps filled to the brim with laugh-out-loud humor, saucy banter, flirty sometimes devilish hijinks, mutual immediate attraction, explosive undeniable attraction, steamy dreamy sex, and adorably sweet romance, then this book is for you!
No spoilers from me but I will say this... Beautiful sassy heroine determined to hang on to her grandmother's legacy and not be bought out by 'the man'-check! Handsome, wealthy neighbor determined to keep his distance-check! A sniveling cheating co-worker boyfriend-check! Shocking secrets, surprising revelations, and lies by admission-check! A very intuitive and quite possibly psychic deceased grandmother-check! Angst, passion, sex, and romance galore-check! That and a whole lot more!
Did I like this book? No, I LOVED it! Definitely five stars for me! Would I recommend it? You bet and I am but only for adult readers! Will I read this author again? Abso-freakin-lutely! And finally, was I entertained? Completely! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!
After a bit of a bookslump I was pleasantly surprised by this. I liked Mimi and Max together and their growing friendship and attraction. They did not jump into bed straight after meeting. I also liked the cute epilogue, but I had wished for a bit more explanation. What happened with the apartment for example.
Overall a very good experience and I rate it 4,5 stars. Rounded to a 5.
Second book "The Bad Boy Wants Me" that was included was about Tori (fan girl) and Cash (rock star). Cash like most bad boy rockers has trouble keeping it in his pants and Tori has been in love with his rocker image since she was thirteen. Both of them are surprised to learn that there is more to each other than they thought. This story had great supporting characters that I would have loved to hear more about.
Will be definitely be reading more from this author, great job!
