Shay Matthews moved to Boston for a fresh start…new apartment, new job, new routine. After too many years being coddled by her overbearing older brothers, Shay’s ready for some freedom and maybe a nice, easygoing guy. She wasn’t expecting to literally run into the scowling, brooding, (and unfairly smoking hot) guy next door.
Fresh off a haunting undercover assignment, detective Wyatt Daniels is jaded about life, relationships, and especially happily-ever-after. But there’s something about the independent and beautiful Shay that makes him want to dig deeper. Or stay away, which is definitely the smarter option of the two.
But the more Shay tries to convince herself that her sweet building manager, Brady, is the guy for her, the more Mr. Completely Wrong-for-Her Wyatt invades her mind and her heart.
ABOUT JODY HOLFORD
Jody Holford is a multi-published author who has a soft spot for happily ever after. So much so, she tattooed the words on her arm. She’s a mom and a wife, a friend, sister, daughter, teacher, and book-lover. Her stories have a little bit of heat and a lot of heart. And maybe, some swoon-worthy moments that will make you smile.
Bad Boy Next Door was a very enjoyable story. Wyatt, a detective that had been working undercover; and Shay, an overprotected woman trying to Branch out and find herself along with her freedom to stretch her wings, brings a fun storyline to life.
This was my first read by Jody and I was overall pleased with the story. Jody has a great ability to write an alpha and brave heroine that doesn't get lost in the story of the alpha. Wyatt is pretty instantly attracted to Shay and wants to protect her while keeping his distance. Shay wants to find her way, while building a relationship with Wyatt.
Overall this was a great read and I can't wait to read more from Jody.
