The last thing I expected was my ex-boyfriend showing up unannounced, demanding to see our son. The son whose existence he’d previously never bothered to acknowledge, leaving me a single mother at sixteen years old.

As if I’m not freaked out enough, I also have to deal with a loud, annoying new neighbour on top of it all.

Imagine my surprise when I discover my neighbour

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I can go back to enjoy the series now. We met Kenzie before and we know that she has a little boy Cole who she had as young girl she was 16 when she got pregnant and the jerk abandons her, but lovingly she has her twin brother Ryder who is always there for her. Now that same jerk is back in town and harrassing her, but her neighbor Jeremy who is Kenzie's brother and has just gotten out of jail is there to ass ...more

OMG! I thought Ryder, Linc, and Nate were the epitome of book-boyfriends, but R. Linda was only preparing my heart for the Adonis that is Jeremy. *swoon*

Kenzie and her storyline have been integral to the entire Scandalous Series, and I love that R. Linda teases pieces of Kenzie's plot in each story. She's a twist in each book, leaving readers crying for her, hopeful for her, and anticipating her own story. As always, R. Linda delivered!! Readers are going to fall heavily for the roman

So I have to say this is my first R. Linda story. I did not read the other stories in this series, and at some points, I felt like I was missing details, but it wasn't enough to make me need to stop reading and go to the other books and read those. So that was a big plus.

This story is about Kenzie and Jeremy and their love story. Kenzie is trying to make a better life for her and her son. When she gave birth to Cole at 16 she knew she never wanted to be a bad mother. She was going to make h
Wow... this book...
I’ve been anxious to read Kenzie’s story since reading the first book in the series and it did not disappoint.
I enjoyed it a lot, it’s filled with action, suspense, excitement and love. Also, a bunch of questions from the previous books were answered in this one.
I really liked. And I love how this author’s heroes make the heroines better, more confident, loved and like their the greatest thing in the world. It’s amazing.
I love this series but my fav couple is Bailey and Ryder.

This is the fourth book in this amazing series. Kenzie is a single mom, who is doing the best she can for her little boy, when her unwanted ex makes an appearance. Jeremy is Kenzie new neighbour, and turns out to be her BF’s sexy older brother, who is newly released from prison, and having done his time is just trying to start a new life for himself. Luckily he is on hand to protect Kenzie and her son, and the attraction between these two is intense. They both have obstacles to overcome, but wil ...more

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review. This is a sweet book. I really liked Jeremy and Kenzie. I also really liked the fact that nobody was judgmental towards either one of them. Their friends and family were very likable. There was a little bit of suspense, which I enjoy. Overall, it was a good book.
No cheating, no ow/om drama, no tstl, no separation, no angst.

Sweet story. This is book 4 and I have not read the previous books. The author did a great job of giving background of the seconaray characters (which there are a lot of) without it being and info-dump. I didn't feel like I was missing too much but not having read the other books in the series.

The main couple are super nice. Jeremy was in prison for 8 years (as a teenager he was rushing to his sisters rescue when he accidentally hit a

"Although I loved this novel, I was disappointed by one thing and that was the fact I felt like the Chase thing was wrapped up fast. We literally get an update in the epilogue and in a way I get it, shows how insignificant he is in Kenzie and Cole’s life but I wasn’t overall satisfied with it."

This was a fun, sweet, and sexy read.

When I signed-up for the ARC, I didn’t know it was the fourth book in a series. And though it is, it reads well as a standalone.

I loved Kenzie’s “introduction” to her neighbor.

“Turn your goddamn music down. I have a child who is trying to sleep next door,” I growled at him.

Best opening ever! Lol! And this shows the kind of attitude Kenzie has throughout the book. Well, except when she was around Jeremy, the neighbor she so rudely spoke to like that, and h

This book i had been looking forward too. When you get an awesome series and you learn about all the different characters the anticipation for each couple is too much sometimes and i am so glad we got Kenzie and the Guy Next Door next.

We didn’t know too much about Jeremy just that he was in prison and the reasons behind it were so sad for both himself and his sister Harper. What i didn’t expect was to meet such a nice, caring and very protective man i really did love Jeremy without even being as

Let's start with a bit of Kenzie's history. See, she got pregnant at a young age with the town's golden boy, who didn't want the baby, so his parent's sent her hush money to leave him alone. Fast forward several years, said golden boy is stalking her, and it's starting to really scare her. Enter her new neighbor, Jeremy, who happens to be her best friend, Harper's brother, but also just got out of prison. Confused yet? Yeah, it is a bit intertwined. Anyway, he becomes her knight in shining whate ...more

Kenzie and The Guy Next Door is a sweet read with a little dash of drama! Single mother Kenzie is trying to live her life with her son Cole. With a crazy ex who stalks her and a hot guy next door, she's got a lot on her plate. Jeremy made a mistake when he was younger and because of that was in prison for years. He's out now and just wants to live the good life and spend time with his sister.

Kenzie is pretty witty, and a few times she made me laugh. She's a strong woman just trying to make a be

The guy next door just might be the game changer.

Kenzie is a single mom. The sperm donor left before her son was even born. But now the dirt bag is back and trying to get back in their lives. And he’s not above stalking to get what he wants.

Lucky for Kenzie, her new neighbor is more than capable of being her white knight. Well in his case, he’s wearing a tight black tee and tattoos! He’s Harper’s older brother, who just got out of prison after eight years.

Jeremy is a good guy. He served his tim

I love, love, love this series!!! All can be read as standalone's, but as each book does feature characters from the previous novels, I do recommend reading them in order.
I was so looking forward to reading Kenzie's story. Her teens were all in an upheaval, so I was so happy to see her find her happiness.
Jeremy is just such a likeable character. He was dealt a tough hand also, but he has risen above his past and is exactly the type of man Kenzie deserves.
It was great catching up with the other c

I really like this series it’s great to read about this entire group of friends. Seeing them have a happily ever after... well we hope they do! And having them all make cameos is great!

this was a first for me reading this author but definitely not the last. Kenzie is a single mom with an ex baby daddy that's trying to put himself back into her life in a bad way and isn't backing down but when her new neighbor comes to her rescue, baby daddy isn't her only problem. Jeremy is Kenzie's best friend brother, he's starting over from where he has been in prison and seeing Kenzie is his next door neighbor makes him happy even if he's been warned to stay away but with her prick baby da ...more

Jeremy, Kenzie and Cole's story

Do not judge a book by the cover. Jeremy unfolds in this story from the ex-con to be a man that Kenzie can ... I will not tell. This story has many characters and an intricate plot. A sweet romance blooms.

Talk about a swoon-worthy hottie!! A tattooed bad boy? Yes, please!

I purchased this book earlier this morning and totally binged on it! I thought book 1, Bailey and Ryder's story was my favorite, but I think this one trumped it! Jeremy and Kenzie have quite the story themselves! It was angstier and even sexier than the others!

One thing I completely loved was how protective Jeremy was of Kenzie and Cole. Between him and Ryder, my heart was ready to melt! Chace was definitely a piece of

Although I really did enjoy this story I felt like I was missing some of the emotional connection between this group of friends/family. I'm sure I would have given an extra star if I had read the earlier books as I had gaps in my understanding of some of the relationships. I also found the story seemed to wrap up quickly and was expecting a little more drama or suspense I suppose given the plot. I did still enjoy it enough to give it 3 stars but would recommend if you want to read this that you ...more

(3.5 stars)

I was not aware when signing up that this is part four of a series. This is a prime example of when series should be read in order, with the list of characters who had their own story, and of course it's assumed that you read their book, so they just carry on as if you knew what they were talking about. The situation with Kenzie and her ex was not something new, and it seemed like it had been a running thing throughout the other books as well. The blurb made it seem

While this book is part of a series and each character has their own story, there are some intertwined pieces in each book. You do not have to read each book, but you see things that are not duplicated in their story even with their own events, so it doesn’t feel like your reading double the same story or missing a piece ever. It just entices you to want to read the other characters stories. This is my second book in this series and if I thought the other men were hot you haven’t met Jeremy yet. ...more

Kenzie and the Guy Next Door is the fourth book in the Scandalous Series by R. Linda. Kenzie is a single mother trying to do the best thing for her son at the same time as going to college and trying to deal with a stalker ex-boyfriend. Jeremy is her neighbor and one of her best friends' brother. They seem to be opposites, but you know that opposite's attract.
