The Boys Next Door (Simon Romantic Comedies) by Jennifer Echols
Publication Date: June 26, 2007
Versions: paperback, kindle
Summary (from barnesandnoble.com):
Lori lives for summertime on the lake. She spends all season wakeboarding, swimming, and hanging with her friends -- including the two hotties in the house next door. With the Vader brothers, Lori's always been one of the guys.
But while Lori and the "baby" brother, Adam, are inseparable friends, she can't deny a secret crush on Sean, the older Vader boy. This year Sean's been paying Lori a lot of attention, and not in a brotherly way.
But just as Lori decides to prove to Sean she's girlfriend material, she realizes that her role as girl friend to Adam may be even more important. And by trying so hard for the perfect summer romance, she could be going way overboard....
This was the only book written by Jennifer Echols that I have not read yet (she's such an amazing author). So I thought, what the heck, and bought it. Was it worth it? Defiantley. Did I love it? Defiantley. Do I recommend it? Oh yeah! This book is about a girl named Lori and she lives next door to the Vader boys. Adam, the youngest brother, has always been her friend since they were younger and Lori has had a crush on Sean, the oldest Vader boy, forever. And since Lori's turing sixteen, she needs to impress him before he goes off to college. She ends up wearing tight and short shirts, skimpy bathing suits and pretending to date Adam just to make him jealous. But maybe Lori and Adam both have ulterior motives.
Oh boy this book was so cute! I read it in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. Well, except for some of the things Lori did which made me so uncomfortable (just from reading it) and embarrased for her that I had to put it down, but I picked it right back up.
Will I reread it?
Defiantely, right now I would have to say that Jennifer Echols is my favorite author. And I can't wait for the sequel which comes out this month.
