Kenzie and the Guy Next Door – R. Linda


The last thing I expected was my ex-boyfriend showing up unannounced, demanding to see our son. The son whose existence he’d previously never bothered to acknowledge, leaving me a single mother at sixteen years old. 

As if I’m not freaked out enough, I also have to deal with a loud, annoying new neighbour on top of it all. 

Imagine my surprise when I discover my neighbour is none other than Jeremy, my best friend’s dangerously hot brother, who was recently released from prison. 

I’m sure he’s a complication I definitely don’t need. But then he inserts himself effortlessly into my life, becoming my hero, my saviour, and someone my son can look up to, and I realize how much I actually need him. 

But my ex isn’t backing off, making me wonder what he’s capable of—and how far Jeremy will go to keep us safe.

I’d like to thank Lady Amber Tours for sending me an e-arc of this book very much appreciated! I love R. Linda’s books they get me so hooked and I just want to devour them and I have with this series! I have read Bailey and The Bad Boy, Indie and the Brother’s Best Friend & Harper and the One-Night Stand and I loved them, in fact, I rated them all 5 stars they were quick and easy reads and this one was no different! It was amazing.

So this one follows Kenzie who is Ryder’s sister and I loved her story from the moment we met her in Bailey and the Bad Boy I knew it was going to be a good story! Kenzie was such a good mum and she was so protective of Cole and it was cute and adorable. I also loved how she wanted to try and just be as strong as possible without getting her brother involved and I loved that she just cared for everyone!

Jeremy oh my god I think I fell in love with him faster than any of the other boys from the other novels. The way he played and interacted with Cole made my heart melt it was absolutely perfect! It was some of my favourite parts of the novel. I also loved how protective and helpful he was with Kenzie when it came to Chase being creepy and an ass.

I loved that Kenzie and Jeremy managed to equally share their past together, like with Kenzie and her past with Chase, and then Jeremy being in Prison and then being reunited with his sister Harper. I just loved their relationship as a whole!

I loved seeing all the characters we got to know and love from the other novels! I like it when authors let us see all the other characters and make them a big part! It’s a big major thing for me in novels and I loved it!

Chase wow he turned into a proper psycho by the end of this novel, how he kept stalking Kenzie and spying on her. To me it had nothing to do with that he wanted to see his son, it was like he just wanted Kenzie and was prepared to do anything to get with her. Although I loved this novel, I was disappointed by one thing and that was the fact I felt like the Chase thing was wrapped up fast. We literally get an update in the epilogue and in a way I get it, shows how insignificant he is in Kenzie and Cole’s life but I wasn’t overall satisfied with it.
