"Just don't overthink it," I tell her.
"We have to overthink it. We're best friends."
I pull back, looking at her.
She looks so fucking hot, her hair a mess from my hands. Lips swollen from my kisses. Eyes full of lust from my touch."Then let's not be best friends anymore. Let's just be us."
This book!!! GAH!!! I am hopeless when it comes to Teagan Hunter's stories. And by "hopeless", I mean hopelessly devoted to her writing. I swear, she never fails to make my day better just by me reading her stuff. Now, she's released the much awaited second novel in her Roommate Romps series, and while the first one had enemies becoming lovers, we've got friends going from platonic to romantic in Love Thy Neighbor. With as many friends-to-lovers books that I've read, dare I say that this one is an all-time favorite.
Caroline Reed, a promising clothing designer lacking in confidence and isn't too comfortable in social situations, and Cooper Bennett, a talented game developer who has no problem socializing, have been best friends ever since they became neighbors at fifteen. More than a decade later, these besties also happen to be roomies. They know how to push each other's buttons just as much as they know what the other is thinking and feeling. They've only crossed the line once--sort of--with a flubbed kiss when they were teenagers. But all it takes one naked encounter in the hallway to change everything.
I absolutely adored Cooper and Caroline! Their story was lighthearted and fun-filled with a hint of angst to satisfy even an angst addict like me. There was something beautifully organic about how their relationship went from being best friends to lovers and then to so much more. There wasn't any unnecessary drama nor was there any slapsticky comedy. Instead, Teagan Hunter offers up humor and wit alongside the romance. I loved the interactions between the two main characters, and I seriously liked their close-knit circle of friends. There was simply nothing for me to quibble about when it came to Love Thy Neighbor. Don't you go rolling your eyes at me either because this gets five-plus stars.
