5 Stars!

Nadia Lee is brand new to me y'all and oh my god she was soooo freaking brilliant, sexy, hilarious, and crazy fun that I'm sorry I'm just reading her words for the very first time (but no worries I'm checking the back list).

The very first stunning book in the sweet darlings series...

That Man Next Door completely stole my heart in the most unexpected ways. This book was brilliantly penned and addicting right from the very start. I laughed, I giggled, I swooned, and I laughed some more.

That Man Next Door is a book you have to read atleast once in your lifetime.. Yup. I said that. It's chick lit galore! It has a 22 year old virgin with a tendency to have wild imagination/over-think things ( Something we have all done hahaha) and a sexy-as-in Man. Need I say more?!

What a sexy, sweet, romantic and often funny book. That Man Next Door is the first book that I’ve read from Nadia Lee. As with any new Author it’s always exciting to find someone to add to your list of BTR. A fun read and OMG I can’t wait to read Nadia’s next!!

Jan Doe, truly her name in the book, is a twenty-two-year-old virgin. Afraid of commitments as a result of her own messed up life she has decided that all she has no desire for a relationship. Hence achieving her goal of “losing her V card

What a Great RomCom! It’s funny (zany might be a better word), it’s flirty fun and sexy romantically as well!

Jan Doe is quite a character. She is unique (dares to be different) but sadly she’s sexually frustrated. You see, Jan is 22 years old, has had 5 one night stands and she is still a Virgin. How is that possible you ask? She uses her Bailey App and gets the heck out of dodge (can anyone say panic attacks-lol)! Jan usually picks guys while she’s out of town so there is no chance of running

I loved this sweet and sexy romantic comedy! I fell in love with the book and with Jan within the very first few pages. She was so down to earth and humble with a wicked sense of humor, really someone I would want to be friends with!

Jan is the normal twenty-two-year old, except she is still a virgin. She’s done everything thing she can to pick a man to lose her V card to, but she has had no success. She always bails. She is careful. She wants no strings and only attempts it when she is out of

Ok so... the idea of an insecure virgin who can’t realize how fast her life is changing is so annoying for me. That’s why the rating is so low. And because of the story too.
Jan is a virgin who is searching for a man to lose her V card with. The problem is that she always “bails” before anything even happens. Until she finds Matt, the guy she wants to sleep with, but not in the first night they see each other.
Matt is the kind of guy any girl would want. Lawyer, hot, stable, rich and caring.

Meh. This is one of those books that came up as a freebie, and since I am a confessed book hoarder, I went to 1-click that ish, only to discover that I already had it on my TBR Mountain. It's one of the reasons I committed to a no-buy this year. With this in mind, I settled in to read, hoping for the best.

Yeah, I probably could have skipped it.

It has alot of the standard bits I enjoy in a romance (three besties that clearly will anchor this series, hot ONS that turns into more, workplace

I found this freebie on Amazon and I believe this was my first one by Nadia Lee. And it's definitely not going to be my last. Her writing is great, the ebook structured is smooth and comfortable to read and the humor is amazing. I loved this rom-com.

At first, Jan annoyed me a bit because of her insecurities and indecisions. I'm indecisive enough for myself... being in the Jan's head gave me whiplash. However, she turned out to be pretty great towards the end, gaining her confidence and the

Fun,sexy, andtotally addictive new adult romantic comedy mixed with a neighbours twist

That Man Next Door was a fun,sexy, andaddictive new adult romantic comedy mixed with a neighbours twist that I just couldn't put down! I’m not always a fan of new adult style romances or romantic comedies but Nadia Lee completely captured my attention with this easy flowing and addictive read that I literally read it from start to finish in one sitting because I was that engrossed.

This book, oh my. It’s sweet, funny and dam sexy. I was sighing, laughing then fanning myself whilst reading this book. Nadia creates a heroine you can’t help but care for, you want to have her friends and you yearn for her family. It breaks your heart to hear about her scars and the inevitable heartache the story brings. Matt is swoon worthy!

The story is so easy to read and written in a way you just want more. This is my first taste of what Nadia Lee writes and I will be delving into her other

This was a decent read. I forgot what is was a bout since I read it last month. Is that a bad sign? I remember not hating it, but not liking/loving it either. So three stars!

Don't know how I missed reading this lovely book by Nadia Lee, but maybe it's a good thing after all because it helped stretch my string of winners to 11 in a row (there was a point over the Christmas break where I was batting 0 for 8, with a bunch of DNFs so upsetting I wanted to throw my Kindle against the wall!)

THAT MAN NEXT DOOR is definitely worth anyone's time to read. It's by Nadia Lee, so of course there will be plenty of...ahem...love scenes, in and out of the bedroom. But this book is

That Man Next Door was a sweet and funny book that I blew right through! There were some unexpected moments in this story that brought tears to my eyes. I find that the light-hearted novels tend to pack the most punch when you get down to the nitty gritty part of the story.

Matt and Jan were so freaking cute together! Jan is awkward and doesn't realize how beautiful and smart she truly is. All she wants to do is lose her virginity on a one night stand but always panics before she can get that

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book by Nadia Lee so I wasn’t sure what to expect but this book turned out to be a great little read.

Jan has had 5 one night stand and is still a virgin, how? because she runs out on the guy before going through with it and thankfully never sees them again. That’s until Matt who is the latest guy she bails on, he moves in next door and then shows up as the new guy where she works!

Matt drives a hard bargain, “I mean it. Dinner. Tonight. You can have your panties back then. I’ll even have them laundered, dried and pressed.” Matt has a good eye, “those clouds over there…” He points. “They look like breasts. Yours in particular.” Matt likes to mke sure his girl is taken care of, “have breakfast with me. I basically only have bagels and cereal, but I can also whip up some eggs if you want.” I liked this book, I fell in love with Matt.

I liked it. I really did but I didn't love it. Can't place what didn't grab me and can't put this book in a 4 or 5 rating. Although it probably had to do with his parents and Emma. I will write a better review when I've had more time to digest it. I will say that I liked it enough to go to the second book. I have a feeling I can get behind Sammi.

This book was great...until it wasn't. I started off loving everything about this story. It was funny, the supporting characters were great, and the heroine and hero had chemistry. As the story progressed, I quickly got fed up with the negative attitude of the heroine. She was always putting herself down. I didn't let it bother me at first because the people around her were always telling her how great she was and it was balancing out the constant

Cute but wanted more

This was a cute story. The heroine is a little too much a Debby downer but the hot chemistry makes up for it.

I liked Jan. I liked Matt. I would've liked this story a whole lot more if it had more of Matt's POV. It's not right that we only got that one chapter at the very end with his perspective.
