Review: The Bad Boy Next Door by Jody Holford

The Bad Boy Next Door


Shay Matthews moved to Boston for a fresh start...new apartment, new job, new routine. After too many years being coddled by her overbearing older brothers, Shay’s ready for some freedom and maybe a nice, easygoing guy. She wasn’t expecting to literally run into the scowling, brooding, (and unfairly smoking hot) guy next door.

Fresh off a haunting undercover assignment, detective Wyatt Daniels is jaded about life, relationships, and especially happily-ever-after. But there’s something about the independent and beautiful Shay that makes him want to dig deeper. Or stay away, which is definitely the smarter option of the two.

But the more Shay tries to convince herself that her sweet building manager, Brady, is the guy for her, the more Mr. Completely Wrong-for-Her Wyatt invades her mind and her heart.


Shay wants to break away from her over protective family. She wants a fresh start without any romantic entanglements. She wasn't expecting to meet anyone who would tempt her to lose focus.

Wyatt is a detective, he has recently finished an under cover job and just trying to get used to normal life. He is not ready for relationships. Right now he is learning to be social again. So when he meets his next door neighbor and is attracted to her, he just tries to ignore it. But will they both be able to deny their mutual attraction for long?

I enjoyed reading this book. It was a good read for me. I think anyone who likes contemporary romance will love it.
