Life just got a bit more complicated…

After a heartbreaking betrayal, Lexi Ferrell is determined to get as far away as possible from her small hometown. So when she scores a scholarship to a prestigious law school in Miami, she jumps at the chance to live right on South Beach. Sun, sand, and an endless stream of beautiful people: who could resist? But her apartment complex provides far more than she asked for…in the form of two yummy new neighbors.

Matt Eisler and Ben Santos are best friends. Nothing could tear them apart...or so they thought. But when Lexi enters their life, neither one can resist wanting to make her his own.

Torn between the hot surfer boy and his exotic Latino roommate, Lexi vows to stay away from them both. But as she soon discovers, Matt and Ben are impossible to resist. And they’ll take her any way they can get her…even if it’s together. Could the three of them ever make it work? Because now that she’s experienced one night of unforgettable passion, the last thing she could ever do is choose between the boys next door.

Note: This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.
NA Review My Thoughts

Whoa, the Boys Next Door was not what I was expecting at all. This is on the steamier end of New Adult for sure. So young adult lovers keep that in mind. And there is also a huge love triangle in The Boys Next Door. It is kind of the whole point of the book. But I think if you know those things going in, you will be prepared and ready to enjoy this fun and totally sexy beachy party book. I feel a little strange calling a book a beachy party book when the main character moves to Miami to attend law school, but there was more partying than law in this story for sure. Heck, her roommate is a med student and she studied even less!

Lexi ran away from home and from a bad breakup, by moving to the opposite of her small town, to the beach and to Miami. What I really liked about the Boys Next Door was that not only did we get to know Lexi and her personality and backstory, but we also really delved into what made each of the boys tick. Matt, Ben and Lexi each had such distinct personalities and situations, and they were each very well developed and easy to get to know and relate to. I don’t even know which of the guys that I like more. I want to say Ben, but I just don’t know! I do know that I would like to see another book to see how everyone is doing.

Matt and Ben have been best friends forever, and I admired their friendship so much. When you think of a best friends love triangle, you see warning signs of “bro fights” and broken friendships all over the place. It is what I dread when reading these books. I am happy to report that that is not the case here. Not at all. And I will leave it at that. If you are looking for a fun and flirty romance that will allow you to escape your day to day for an afternoon, this is the perfect book. It read like a guilty pleasure.
