Well, a friend reccomended it, and I tried it. I think it'd have been far better if we got to know the characters past the insta crush. Maybe that's the type of book this is? I don't know. However, I think the award for the biggest eyeroll is she was gay/bi until he was naked on top of her. (Yes, seriously) I'm still not sure if she decided after dating a few guys to be fully gay or if she decided to say that after they had sex. At first she said she was bi.

Either way, it was hot but the plot l

So this is what happens:

1. MC finds out bad boy neighbor is pulling himself out of some deep shit when he turns up in her room one night (and that he's always loved her because DUH)
2. The next day they have sex 3?(maybe four) times
3. One day later they are planning on forever and ever with each other *insert picture of me with my eyes so far in the back of my head they never come back*


This probably could have been really good as a full novel with A LOT more explanatio

Ever wonder who the boy next door really is? Ronnie thinks she knows Lucas, the bad boy next door. His family moved in six years ago and Lucas has been in trouble since the beginning, he's mocked Ronnie, disappeared for days, months at a time only to return beaten and bruised. The police come looking for him, he's rumoured to be an enforcer for a motorcycle gang, and he always has money, serious money. Yeah, Ronnie knows Lucas is a bad boy. But she never knew how bad a boy Lucas is until he inte ...more

This is my first Lexxie Couper book and let me tell you, I am not disappointed.

Spoilers and explicit language warning.

I downloaded this as a freebie and while I didn't have the highest expectations this was still pretty ridiculous. There were too many plot holes for me to enjoy this, one minute the main character is bi, then she is suddenly a lesbian then is suddenly neither. I don't know what this author thinks bisexuality is, but whatever this was was not an accurate representation of everything. The insta-love was something I can handle, it happens often in novellas, so

Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

The Bad Boy Next Door is kind of a departure from Lexxie Couper's normal witty and fun romances, this one reads more like a romantic suspense and it packs a punch or rather several. Violence, danger, sex and love all play a part in this story and it was action packed from start to finish.

Lucas and (Ronnie) Veronica's families have lived next door to each other for 6 years and in that time Veronica wasn't all that pleased with the handsome and

Knock Knock

This was fast paced, full of action from beginning to end. It was sexy as hell and deeply gripping. Only problem I had was that there wasn't enough. I would of loved more to devour.
Maria Rose
This is a dark and sexy tale of two neighbours who have lusted after each other for years, but never acted on their feelings. But when Lucas shows up naked and bleeding in Ronnie's bed in the middle of the night with a dire warning, Ronnie soon finds out that her bad boy neighbour has been hiding a lot of secrets, secrets that could get her killed.

This novella is definitely not lighthearted. It's intense and action packed, and hella sexy, as it becomes apparent that Lucas is no longer going to i

The Bad Boy Next Door by Lexxie Couper was a sexy, fast paced and action packed story from beginning to end. I enjoyed reading this different storytelling by one of my favorite authors. Lucas and Ronnie had this raw passion between them that just intensified and they scorched the pages. This author seriously know how to write naughty sex scenes that have you needing to cool off. I liked how Lucas would risk his life to keep Ronnie safe and she was no shrinking violet either; I loved her strength ...more

I hope this is a new avenue that Lexxie Couper will be visiting again soon.
This is a new and refreshing book from one of my favorite authors.
Lucas and Ronnie are high octane and in your face from the word go. The sex is erotic, the story is wicked, and you won't want to put it down until the bad guy gets his ass kicked.
Happy Reading!

Hooks you in and grips you right from the start. No one can write a hotter sex scene than than this writer. You find yourself fanning your face from all the heat coming off of your tablet and then praying the thing doesn't zap out on you because of the words jumping off the page. The story is intriguing and like all of Lexxie's work, will intrigue you to the very end. ...more

This was definitely a hot story but would have been much better if there had been more of a backstory and just more info given in general. Too much info missing and therefore made this story confusing.

Rate: 2,5/ 5 stars

This is was really weird. I feel like nothing was really explained well. So many weird things happened, with the main plot, with the relationship. Hmm, just no. It was dissapointing.

Seriously get bisexuality right

I would have loved this book. But for whatever reason the author decided to make the lead female waffle between saying she is bisexual and then acting like that only means lesbian. Bisexuality means having an attraction to both genders. It does not mean the person is a lesbian. It does not mean the person is straight. It means attraction to both. That really annoyed the crap out of me. Other than that, the sex scenes were good. Since it seems to have a storyline th

An action packed story.

This is a jam packed five chapters of action and turning pages. It is attention grabbing from the first page to the last. Lucas and Ronnie have great chemistry and an interesting relationship. It was s very satisfying short story and enjoyed.

I enjoyed this quick read. Truthfully, there was a little less angst than I like and I felt as though the intimate moments took over the plot, but overall, I liked it and plan on reading the next one.
