American Angie Donovan has never wanted much. When you grow up getting bounced from foster home to foster home, you learn not to become attached to anything, anyone, or any place. But it only took her two days to fall in love with Australia. With her visa clock ticking, surely she can fall in love with an Australian—and get hitched—in two months. Especially if he’s as hot and funny as her next-door neighbor…
Jace Walters has never wanted much—except a bathroom he didn’t have to share. The last cookie all to himself. And solitude. But when you grow up in a family of seven, you can kiss those things goodbye. He’s finally living alone and working on his syndicated comic strip in privacy. Sure, his American neighbor is distractingly sexy and annoyingly nosy, but she’ll be gone in a few months…
Except now she’s determined to find her perfect match by checking out every eligible male in the town, and her choices are even more distracting. So why does it suddenly feel like he—and his obnoxious tight-knit family, and even these two wayward dogs—could be exactly what she needs?
The Aussie Next Door by Stefanie London is a contemporary romance that I won’t be forgetting. It has humor, romance, and an emotional journey that pulls me closer to the characters. I loved the cast of characters. There are three brothers. One is successful, one is a charmer (Trent), and Jace is the serious brother. He’s an introvert. I enjoy following Jace and his thoughts. This guys is sexy as sin, brilliant in creative ways, and is the most caring person ever. His family always went out to help someone else. In this case, Jace gets stuck in accepting a doggy sitter thing for two months. He is constantly distracted by his sexy as hell American female renter, Angie, next door.
Last but not least, Angie likes Jace a lot. She trusts him. Angie can always rely on his help. But lately she’s been noticing just hot hot her Australian neighbor is. Attraction hits them both hard. One denies the attraction while the other tries to ignore it. Especially, when the other one wouldn’t even consider a serious relationship.
Angie has a deadline to marry an Australian or else leave the country she is now calling home. Jace declined the offer. Now, it’s up to Angie and her friends to find her a mate. Jace needs to finish his comic strip but the dogs he’s siting for are controlling his time away from work. If you’re a huge fan of Christina Lauren and Samantha Chase, then this book is a must read for you! I couldn’t stop laughing as I read. Overall, I recommend this contemporary romance to all.
