My Enemy Next Door by Whitney G. and Nicole London

4 Smooches

Synopsis

“You are a cocky, arrogant asshole and I sincerely wish you misery for the rest of your life…PS–You weren’t *that* damn sexy… “ 

Those were the last lines I wrote in Jace Kennedy’s yearbook before graduating high school.

Enemies from the moment we met, we went out of our way to avoid each other whenever we could. And in the moments that we couldn’t? Our heated arguments were strong enough to light the world on fire.

He was an all-star prick. Plain and simple.

I was a “band geek with fugly-ass braces.” (Not true at all.)

Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to leave him and our small hometown of Blue Harbor behind.

Now that it’s ten years later, I’ve graduated from Harvard Law at the top of my class, and I’m working at the firm of my dreams. I’m happier than I’ve ever been, surrounded by new loyal friends, and ready to compete for the lead lawyer position.

Until I find out that Jace Kennedy graduated from law school, too.

Until I realize that he’ll be working at the same exact firm, in the office right across from me.

And if that isn’t unfortunate enough, he’s far sexier and way more arrogant than I originally remembered. (Oh, and last night he moved in next door…)

Review

I loved this fast and fun story from Whitney G. and Nicole London. I have read books from each of these authors separately but this is their first work together and I for one found that they blended styles seamlessly. My Enemy Next Door was incredibly fun and the tension between Jace and Court made the book a hit for me personally. I mean what’s not to love about a second chance romance with an enemy to lovers theme.

While I  could easily say I would have liked more from the story I would say that would be true for any short read that is greatly done. I for one am looking forward to more collaborations from these two in the future.
