About this ebook

Twenty-six-year-old Rose Devlin may shop in the plus-size department, but she's never had a problem attracting men--with disastrous consequences. Recovering from her latest mistake, Rose has sworn off casual sex and moved to California to grow up, help her best friend, and make something of herself.

When Rose asks the cute-but-geeky guy next door to help her land a job in high tech, she never expects to unearth his quiet strength, stunning accomplishments--and hidden talents.

With a secret in her own past, Rose tries to keep her distance, but she finds that nerdy Mark isn't so nerdy when the lights go out. And that maybe, just maybe, she's not too grown up to risk one more disaster...

I should have known better. The first book was so, so but I was interested to see where the writer was going. Big mistake! "This time next door" is a total waste of time of time and money. I have been trying to finish reading it for weeks now and every time I get so bored that I stop. I am tempted to ask for a refund of my money, that is how boring this book is. No character development. Each chapter is the same written in different ways. 1+1=2, 3-1=2, etc...different angle but end up the same. Never buying another book by this author again!

I have to have a hard copy of this book. I love it. It is so real I feel like these people live next door to me. Lots of funny banter and second guessing and assumptions. I can not say eneough. Read it you will be glad you did.

This is the first time I'm not totally sure about how I feel about a book. I wish the ending had a epilogue though.
