About Life Next Door:

There is only one thing in life that professional pastry Chef Priscilla Westcott values more than baking and wine, and that’s honesty. A quality she soon learns that her marriage lacks when her husband runs off with their next door neighbor.

Divorced and alone, Priscilla is determined to make changes in her life. She decides to approach her new goals like one of her beloved recipes. Surely with a little time, a dash of patience, and measured planning she can whip herself—and her life—back into shape.

However, when a new—and utterly delicious—neighbor takes up residence in the house that ruined her marriage, Pricilla fears that her careful world will fold faster than a deflated soufflé.

Trent Walker knows what he wants and his sweet, sassy neighbor is at the top of the list. He’s certain that the chemistry between them would be explosive, but Priscilla fears that an affair with him, however hot, could be a recipe for disaster.

Holy crapballs, this book was hilarious! It’s official motto should be: maturity, it’s not for everyone. It’s how I live my life, and it’s how Priscilla lived hers most of the time in here.

This book had so many tropes that I’ll always love:

  • Neighbor romance
  • Hilarity ensues at every turn
  • Fighting as foreplay
  • Sugar sugar

It reminded me a lot of situations and stuff Bridget Jones would get into, but that might just be because I read this right after watching The Edge of Reason.

Seriously, Priscilla is my spirit animal. Getting drunk off fancy wine and egging the neighbor’s house? Hell, sign me up. That sounds REALLY fun. Add in nice views of a hottie, and it sounds like the perfect night.

If you read my blog regularly, you know that the perfect book for me is just as hot as it is hilarious, and bonus point when they manage to be both at the same time.

Bottom line: I want Priscilla’s life, so that bitch better watch out. I may be stealing her house, her business, and her man.
