To The Rude Guy in Apartment Five,

I’m glad you’re happy to have moved into a new apartment, but no:

I do not want to have a beer with you.
I do not want to have a nude sleepover.
I do not want to make you breakfast, lunch or dinner, no matter how many lap dances you promise to give me.
I do not need you to serenade me through the walls at 1am.
And no, I have no interest

The cover and the book blurb reeled me in. Starting off, I thought the little notes going back and forth from one door to the other was a clever idea and they were pretty catchy and fun-to-read. Too quickly, things began a fast descent with the rest becoming over-the-top and really begged the lines of reality to be stretched. Both main characters were immature for their late twenties and early thirties, and the sexual innuendos became page-filler that got a whole lot old after a while. Too much ...more

4-4.5 ”Jagger and Magnolia” stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Never in my life had I expected to see Kingston Jagger Scott again. I felt my knees shaking as I heard his loud laugh from outside the door.
“You can run, Magnolia, but you can’t hide,” he said through the door.
I ran to my couch, buried my head in the cushions, and screamed.

This book was so hilarious and oh so romantic. It’s been a while since I read one like this. It was one of those cheeky romance that we can’t just help but enjoy. The first thing t

OMG, this book drew me in from the very first note that was left. I loved the whole banter between apartments 4 and 5. I was laughing more and more with each note. When Magnolia (#4) realizes who Jagger (#5) is, it was so great because there was some history between them and she never thought she would see him again. Sometimes fate has other plans. 10 years ago, they made an almost mistake that hurt several people in their lives. Fast forward 10 years later and the feelings and chemistry that wa ...more

I’m actually kind of mad I paid money for this book. It started of great, the notes were cute, but then when we meet Jagger, he’s a total asshole. He’s not funny, he’s not charming, he’s a jerk! And Magnolia thinks his behavior is fine? They have a past, he did a pretty rotten thing and she’s mad for less than a day. Then he drops a truth bomb, that honestly isn’t really explained, and she’s all “well you did it because you love me”. No, he did it because he’s a self entitled jerk! This one just ...more

It was cute and funny. This is the first book I've read by this author and I really enjoyed it. Jagger kinda came across as a douche bag at first but he redeemed himself. I can't wait to read Jane and Tate's story next. ...more

**I'm not sure I read the same book as the others because I don't understand the high ratings??

The blurb and the cover were what sold me! The story started off hysterical then tapered off to forced humor and eye rolls--which I was still ok with because I was looking for a light and funny read.

But 3/4 of the way through, when Jagger makes Magnolia dinner and she picks his brain for her article...who wrote that? It was a completely different feel than the beginning. Jagger did a 180 and all of a

how are people giving this 5 stars when i literally couldn’t get through the first 5 pages because of the stupid humour (?) and the stereotypical male whilst the female asked for no replies but kept in replying???
like he literally said ‘women act like they don’t know something when they know everything’ about a woman he knew for all 2 seconds and thought asking for bars and strip clubs was the way to introduce himself to the neighbour (?)))

Fun Sexy Romance ❤️🔥

This is a fun, slow burn romance. Olivia works in an office and the ladies became bff!
Jagger is the gorgeous rude guy in apartment five! The notes they leave for each other cracked me up. So much going on in this book, wonderful storyline and love the characters. So many surprises and secrets revealed. I loved everything about this book 📖❤️🔥

Ugh. This book was such a disappointment. The cover and the blurb intrigued me, but after the first few chapters, the rest of the story fell flat. The H was a jackass and the h was a doormat. Both characters were way too immature for their ages. There were too many unanswereds in the plot. I skimmed through this just to finish.

Jagger and Magnolia will set your Kindle on fire. Talk about chemistry, it's explosive. The naughty post-it notes on her door are hilarious and their back and forth banter is amusing. This book is one you will find hard to put down once you start. I read it in one sitting and stayed up until I finished. The characters are well developed and likable. Lots of drama, twists, suspense and tons of tumor. He's her mysterious new next door neighbor, but is he a blast from the past ? Lots of secrets, hi ...more

Wtf was I reading. I made it about 25 pages in and couldn’t do it, my brain was crying cause it was so bad. It was a bunch of random dialogue with a bunch of immature characters. The plot randomly jumped forwards and yet went no where. Felt like reading a long post from people who need to post every little thing about their life on social media 🤦🏻‍♀️

I was intrigued by the blurb, but the story couldn’t keep my attention. I hate giving low ratings. This book just wasn’t my cup of tea. I first downloaded a sample of this since this is a new to me author and I looooooved the banter between the H and h. There was obviously more going on with these two than meets the eye and I was engrossed. I loved Jagger's playfulness and equally loved Magnolia’s quirkiness.

After purchasing the book, it took on a slightly different vibe. The hilarity of Jagger

4 star Review of To The Rude Guy In Apartment Five (The Inappropriate Bachelors #1) by
J S Cooper


Having read and listened to previous books by this author I was excited to listen To The Rude Guy In Apartment Five. This was a fun and entertaining listen that captured my attention from the first to the last chapter.

This is Magnolia Allen and Jagger Scott’s story and is certainly steamy and at times funny. The narrator Laurie West is relatively new to me and she did a good job with th

What happens when your first crush ends up being your next door neighbor? Trouble, Heat, Hilarity...

Decided to give myself a bit of a break from ARCs.

1.) I love books with that whole enemies/frenemies to lovers vibe and this did not disappoint.

2.) The notes between '#5' & '#4' were hilarious.

3.) I loved Magnolia's blog entries. It was a great way to discover her thoughts and the past.

4.) Jagger is hot, sweet, inappropriate, determined.

5.) Fun, flirty, ridiculous, hilarious, sweet, steamy rea

Omg, this is my happy book. With everything that's going on in the world right now. This book completely took my mind off it for a while. It's funny and so charming. Banter, flirting, love, past, it was all so good. I couldn't put it down, I wasn't ready for it to end. Magnolia and Jagger were quite the pair.
I was so satisfied with this book. You won't be disappointed.

This book was so funny and The Rude Guy is just full of it! When a new neighbor moved in to Magnolia’s apartment building right next door he causes all kinds of havoc and they complain to each other by notes. Magnolia just wants to do good at her interview but the pest in Apartment 5 won’t give up and she barely gets the job. Magnolia is fending off his sexual comments but she hasn’t been on a date in over a year so maybe she might go easy on Rude guy till she meets him.

This was the perfect rom com! JS Cooper really hit it out the park with the humor in this one, my face still hurts from all laughing. Magnolia and Jagger had a past and now fast forward to the future and it’s still very much in the present but there’s certain aspects of the past that they need to deal with. The banter between these two was absolutely epic and I loved every second of it

I was lucky enough to get ARC for To The Rude Guy in Apartment Five.
This one was a wonderful suprise with the witty notes left between The Rude Guy in Apartment Five & Magniola then turns into so much more which you didnt expect.
Magniola and Jagger were just meant to be, read it & you will see 😁

What the fuck? This is so stupid. Did I really waste my $4 for this book? Why do they keep writing promising blurbs only to write a shit story.

Everything about this book is stupid. For a guy who's supposedly in love with the heroine since he was 10 years old, Jagger came off as a complete ass. His sex jokes were disgusting and his attitude was so immature. Then the author tried to redeem Jagger by minimizing his sex innuendos. This really confuses me because for the first half of the book

Reading this book is the equivalent of watching a Jerry Springer talk show. An initial interest in drama and dysfunction gives away to painful awkwardness. And when you are finished watching you wish you had that hour of your life back.

Jagger and Magnolia are neighbors in an apartment building in San Francisco. They also share a past. Their back story is really effed up. I can't even begin to describe it but they are both sort of terrible people.

Neither of the characters are particularly likab

This book had me laughing one second at the back and forth banter between Jagger and Magnolia through their notes they leave each other. Jagger comes off as this rude obnoxious guy writing little notes to his new neighbor and Magnolia finds him to be annoying and wants to be left alone. Then we find out that these two actually know each other and have a history that is kind of a disaster, but their attraction is still strong and as they try to fight against it Magnolia finds herself not being ab ...more

Jagger and Magnolia end up being neighbors in their apartment complex. The two share hilarious notes back and forth. The sexual tension is through the roof with them. Both characters are a little immature for their age but an enjoyable read.

I received a copy of this book via Booksprout and am leaving a review.
Overall I liked this book. It clearly was better than the next book which I have already read. In this one we have Jagger and Magnolia. It begins with them passing notes. Comes to find out that they have a past together. Thankfully this time they get it all worked out and get the happy ending they both have wanted for a long time.

More like 3.5 stars. The beginning was the best part. Some seriously laugh out loud parts. The editing could have been better. The story was simple and predictable. An easy fast read if youre in a reading slump. Not terrible...but not the greatest. Just a cute meh book.
