Review: The Player Next Door by Kathy Lyons

The Player Next Door

Synopsis

An unexpected catch...

NBA star Mike Giamaria doesn't mix basketball with love. Ever. Then Mike meets Tori Williams, his cute, quirky new neighbor who seems hell bent on refurbishing her death trap of a house on her own. When she falls from her roof and into his arms, Mike knows he's just caught a whole heap of trouble.

Trouble sums up Tori's life. Despite her academic success, no one believes she can take care of herself-not her family, not her ex-boyfriend. She's determined to live her life on her own terms, and if that includes a hot summer fling with the super-sexy athlete next door, so much the better.

But when Tori's around, Mike can't keep his mind on basketball. He wants...more. And to his horror, not just more time on the court. When training starts, it's game over-it has to be-unless Tori can convince Mike that love doesn't belong on the sidelines.

4-Stars Review

This book is so funny. I couldn't stop laughing the whole time. I loved Tori's humour. Mike wasn't bad either and together they were just perfect. A great book for romance readers.
Tori has recently moved to a house she inherited and now she is working on its remodeling. Mike is a player who moved next door to her. They both become friends but they are attracted to each other. Tori thinks its a good idea to have a summer fling, Mike agrees, what they didn't know is that once they started seeing each other they will not be able to stop when the summer is over. They are perfect match and I loved reading their story. It was interesting and very entertaining. A sweet, light and cute summer read.
