The Stud Next Door

By Kendall Ryan

Release Day: January 19, 2021

Life threw me a curveball. An adorable eight-pound, four-ounce curveball with her mother’s eyes and my dark hair. I’d like to think my single-dad game is strong, but honestly? I’ve been struggling a little.

When a beautiful young woman moves in next door and offers to give me a hand, I jump at the chance to hire her as a nanny. Jessa is amazing with my daughter. She’s also patient, kind, and way too pretty.

The number one rule of hiring a nanny? Don’t bed the nanny.

It’s a rule I intend to keep.

 But as the days pass, I begin to realize how much my life is missing. Companionship. Romance. Intimacy. When I discover my heart has space for one more female, it’s a lost cause, another curveball. The hot-as-hell nanny is leaving soon for a mission trip to Central America. No sense in letting myself fantasize about Jessa being a permanent part of my life.

The closer we get, the more difficult it becomes to keep my feelings in check, because my heart won’t listen. And neither will my libido.

Well, you know what they say. Rules are meant to be broken . . .

The Stud Next Door is a sweet and sexy read that is sure to leave readers with a smile on their faces and is the perfect read to kick off the new year.

The Stud Next Door follows the story of single dad, Connor and Jessa. Connor is adjusting to life as a single father, but when it comes to parenting advice, he doesn’t have anyone to turn to and juggling work and a baby is harder than it appears. So when Jessa appears, it’s like all of Connor’s prayers have been answered. The only problem, she’s leaving in two months….

The Stud Next Door was a quick and easy read for me. I fell head over heels for Connor and Jessa instantly. They clicked right off the bat. And while their chemistry was off the charts, they wanted what was best for baby Marley and tried to fight the intensity of what they were feeling. Even though they tried to fight it, their feelings were too much to be ignored. They were the perfect match in all the ways and I just loved the ease of their relationship.

The Stud Next Door is the perfect read to kick off the new year with. It’s sexy, sweet, and well written. I loved that this story didn’t have an ounce of drama to it. It was just a straight-up love story that captured my heart from the first page and left me devouring each and every word. All in all, a great read to spend your day curled up with!
