The Hunter brothers are back in town, and all five of them have got their eyes on one lucky girl.

I've always had a crush on the boys next door. I used to peek from my bedroom window when they were playing in their backyard. I didn't even care that they never looked my way.

Now that we're all grown up and they're home for a visit, something's different. The way they stare at

♥️Fantasy Land  Book Reviewer♥️
This is not my first reverse Harem book and it won't be my last. I had to give Nikki 5 stars for stepping out of her box and trying something new. I think she did a great job with this story. You have everything you would want from a story like this, 5 sexy brothers, one beautiful strong woman that can hopefully handle them, an upset mother, and a crappy ex-boyfriend. This is a great read and I did really enjoy it. I voluntarily read an advance copy for my honest review.

I'm gonna keep this review short.
It's a great book and the connections were plenty.
Hot and Sexy and different from what I have read by this author.

I really enjoyed this book, Ava's parents are incredibly strict and bigoted and for some reason do not like the Hunter family

However the Hunter boys like Ava and when her ex starts causing trouble they want to do all they can to help

This is a fantastic story, I really enjoyed each of the guys personalities and how they interact with Ava, the storyline was great and I did not want to put the book down, a very enjoyable read

Good but short. I really enjoy that the guys don’t care what other think but they are almost to blah about it. I like that Ava worried about it a bit before deciding to go for it.
Dumb concept.

This one was okay. It was a little drawn out in some places. I did like the characters though and the extra little drama.

I received this book as an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This was an interesting read for me. I didn't know how I would feel about reading a romance with 6 members in the primary relationship. I was nervous I wasn't going to like it. But it was REALLY well written and very entertaining. I was concerned that the intimate sex scenes were going to be difficult to read and make the book less enjoyable, but they were beautiful, sexy scenes. It was interesting getting to know the differ

I received a complimentary of this book and yes I did purchase a copy before reading it.

I have read a few of Ms. Chase’s books before and enjoyed them so I purchased a copy of this. I generally don’t do erotica but this book intrigued me at least the premise did. I was confused from the start with the prologue. It sounded like I was coming into the middle of the story already. Will I was a scene from a later chapter. HUH?! Also I couldn’t figure out the logistics of the people placement in the s

**I received this ARC in exchange for an honest voluntary review** This was my first reading this trope & I wasn't completely disappointed. Definitely a fantasy & unrealistic so if that's not your thing, I wouldn't recommend it. Though I do give points to the author for writing out of her comfort zone! Seemed like Ava was too meek to be taking part in a harem with five different personalities, two of which could be absolute hotheads. Did like seeing former characters make an appearance. ...more

3 Stars of Brotherly Love

Well I just jump right in. This was a cutesy love story about a girl and the five neighbor boys all grown up. I'm not above having a smutty dream about five brothers but it's not really realistic. I don't care how close brothers are they never really want to share. But it was a cute little fictional story line. This is on the Kindle Unlimited list so if you have a chance to read it's cute.

A for ever love.

I did enjoy the characters and the story plot . It was believable and well written. I do have a problem with the missing pages. Quite a few of the pages were blank. That makes it a little hard to follow the story and occasionally I had to guess at what happened . keep writing and get on the editors about those blanks.

Had a lot of promise, but was too simplistic and unrealistic in terms of character development. The main character moved to fast for her personality, and the emotional development was just too simplistic to be believable. But I gave three stars because I love anything reverse harem.

When I downloaded the book I was super excited to see it was really long then the story ended at 30%. This is very frustrating from the readers perspective. A little bonus material at the end is cool but 70% of the published book is ridiculous. And the story was okay.

Soo much better than I expected or hoped....

Soo much better than I expected or hoped, between the cover and the books I saw it lumped in with I thought this was probably this was just another lots and lots of sex books w/just enough story to say it had one ..... I'd seen soo many of the ones were that type,thin plot or just enough to serve as an excuse for lots of meaningless sex,that is only really good if your looking for something to help you get hot while you do other things... sadly too man

A real-deal bro-mance in the making...

At twenty-one, Ava Green has already wasted three years too many on her controlling ex Joseph. When she runs into her her neighbors, all five hot and handsome, but she is now cautious when it comes to men.

The Five Brothers Next Door is a light, sweet and steamy reverse harem story. Ava is a 21 year old high school teacher. She recently broke up with her controlling boyfriend, who equally controlling parents adore. After another strained weekly dinner with her parents they run into three of the five Hunter brother, their former next door neighbors.
The Hunter brothers have come home to spend the next eight weeks leading up to Thanksgiving with their parents. All successful in their own right, they

Great book with a sexy RH story and bonuses

This was actually one of the more enjoyable "book with bonus stories" I've ever read. So often the bonuses just take up space and aren't worth reading. Not so in this case. Both "Again" and "Guilty" we're great stories. I really liked "Guilty" and Emily and Cole's crazy story.
But the main draw was the fantastic "Five Brothers Next Door". It was a great RH book with relatable characters and forbidden fantasies and the judging, gossipy, prejudice of a sma

My rating for this book is 4 3/4 stars...I wasn't sure if I was going to truly enjoy this book but I found that I really did! We meet Ava who is 21 yrs old and a high school teacher, trying to live up to her parent's expectations although she doesn't agree with them but giving into them is easier than living with their opinions! Her parents (especially her mom) are pushing her back at her ex boyfriend Joseph. He is nasty, controlling, verbally abusive and not someone she wants to be with! Enter ...more

Ava is having a rough time with her parents. Her parents are very conservative and judgmental and want to control her life. She has broken up with the man they approved of because he was creepy and abused her but her parents wouldn't listen to her. One night while out with her parents for dinner, she runs into the son of their old next door neighbors. Ava had always had a crush on the Hunter brothers but she was too young for them to notice when they moved away. It surprised her how interested ...more

I was a little skeptical going in to reading this book about 5 men and 1 woman but WOW WOW WOW ! Nikki Chase delivers a story with all 6 POV's beautifully w/o skipping a beat in the story and me wanting all 5 Hunter brother's for myself. It wasn't all about steamy scenes, which were oh my steamy, melting, left me panting scenes, it was a story that was flawless, that flowed perfectly with an actual plot that kept me reading. All about a woman, Ava, who was raised by parents who were more worried ...more

[Spoiler Alert]

Okay so this is a DNF for me. I made it 25% of the way through, and concluded that there was no hope of it getting better.

First off, the author needs to learn what a “Prologue” is. The “Prologue” given in the book is what is called a “teaser”. A Prologue would give us a quick look into the past that would set the foundation for what was to come. Our author put a snippet of a future chapter as the prologue 🤦♀.

This book would have been a whole star better if it’d had a proper prolo

Loved it! The story was very fluid and it really isn’t 700 pages because that includes the bonus content. The story focuses on Ava Green who is a high school teacher and is a run of the mill girl that happens to have parents that may have pushed her to be with a terrible ex who ends up seeing her to pay back all the money ever spent in their relationship. While at a dinner she meets the boys next door that she had a crush on for all her life, the Hunter brothers.

Ava, under her parents watchful and judgemental eye, is trying hard to move on after breaking it off with her abusive psycho ex.
While the parents and the creepy psycho don't make it easy for the strong, sassy, ambitious 21-year-old teacher in the small-minded town, she still has does not give up all hope!
Especially when she has been reintroduced to her the Hunter boys, the five neighbors boys turned hot men- who lived next to her parent's house, whom she secretly watched from her window growing

4.5 Stars! There is Ava who is a young high school teacher. She recently broke up with her ex that she was with for three years. He was very controlling and verbally abusive to her. Her mom loved him and thinks she should get back together with him. Then there are the Hunter Brothers who lived next door to her when she was growing up. They are back for an extended vacation. They all work together in their company that is doing very well. When they first see Ava there is just something about her. ...more

I really enjoy menage and reverse harems have become quite popular. Most of the ones I have read have been sci-fi/paranormal and it was fun to see a contemporary romance with the theme.

The author does a good job not rushing it all and giving each of the characters a chance to really develop. They may be brothers, and even twins in one case, but they are very different in terms of their personal styles. Sometimes the authors don't do as good a job distinguishing the characters and kind of rush it

You want a story where the female is the certain of the universe for 5 hot billionaire brothers this is the one for you.

There's sex, plenty of the hot sweaty kind and some gentle two people making a loving connection kind. We have insights as to how to deal with 5 different personalities of men, their egos and issues. I was also kind of shocked as to how she questioned herself about the ability to not only be able to please all these men but can you truly love more than one man at a time? Does i

Nikki has done it again. I loved this book. I laughed out loud a few times and could relate to them being in a small town with all the gossip. It made me angry for them the way the town treated to guys and it was all because their parents got divorced and then got along better after that. And the there are Ava's parents who always told her to "keep her head down and stay out of trouble" so that no one would talk about her and make her look bad
