It’s the final book in the Sandy Heights Series…Can’t wait to see what love has in store for us on this one.
Admittedly, I’m an a**hole. Okay, that might give you an unfair opinion of me if taken out of context. So let me explain myself.
Every guy knows the Bro Code. It’s kind of a package deal with the thing swinging between our legs. You can’t have one without the other. And the highest of all the Bro Codemmandments is do not–under any circumstances–have sexual thoughts about your best friend’s sister. And no, there is not an amendment clause for when she’s beautiful, smart, witty, and can kiss you breathless in under three point five seconds–yes, I counted. I’ve asked around the Brommunity and apparently that rule is deemed unbreakable. Which brings me back to my first point–I’m an a**hole.
In my defense, I didn’t know she was his little sister when she moved into the apartment next door. I also didn’t know when she was ripping my shirt off in her living room–don’t get the wrong idea, she just wanted to wash it. And I definitely didn’t know when aforementioned kiss had me stumbling over my words, her tongue, and my own two feet. But that’s as far as it went–and will go! I swear. From this point forward, we are just Good Neighbors.

Fly Girl’s Review
This is the first book I’ve read by J.P. Nicholas. The blurb caught my eye and I thought, this might be fun. It was fun, to an extent. It is definitely a romantic comedy and I did laugh in a couple of parts. But overall the story felt a little bit rushed.
Rachel and Liam meet for the first time at a wedding several weeks before this part of the story takes place. Neither realizes they might have family or friends in common until Rachel moves back to town and ends up in Liam’s apartment building, pretty much next door. Liam later discovers that she is actually the sister of his best friend and that is where their dilema resides. Both have huge issues with Callum that they are afraid dating would hurt him or their relationships with him. During the time that they try to stay apart, they learn how much they can’t live without one another and how much Rachel gets along with Liam’s kids. This is the deal breaker that makes them both decide they are going to jump in and explain to Callum they need to see each other. To his credit, Callum only punches him once and then realizes how much Liam really loves his sister. So that is where I think the story should have ended, but J.P. gives us one more curveball that I feel was too quickly overcome and rushed to conclusion.
I really wanted to love this book. There were just a few things that didn’t jive with me right off. Like there isn’t any conversation between Liam and Rachel when he sees her in the hall of his apartment building after not knowing she was even from his town? I think that was a little over the top and there is a painting scene at the end that is way too much for me. I know this is supposed to be a romantic comedy but it still has to flow with the story and timeline. Finally I’m not sure if he were as doting a father as is discussed that he would let his kids be gone so much from him when he’s not at work. Finally as I said before I feel the book would have been better without the last curveball and the rushed ending. I do love the HEA though…That melted my heart and why although there were issues, I’m still giving it a 4 of 5.
