The Dream Guy Next Door

The Dream Guy Next Door Summary

A sexy, swoony falling-for-the-neighbor standalone romance from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lauren Blakely!
Just my luck - my new next door neighbor is a unicorn.
Yep, the British hottie is clearly a mythical man because - get this - he's a sexy, witty, charming, big-hearted single dad.
Who, wait for it, wants to find Mrs. Right and get hitched.
He’s a once-in-a-blue-moon kind of man, and it’s a darn shame I’m not on the market. If I were, his accent alone would melt me. Add in the fact that he's a veterinarian, and my animal-loving heart would be flip flopping.
But my heart's on the mend. I'm a single parent like him, and raising my teenage daughter is my top priority. Plus, falling for a guy who shares your property line is a line you shouldn’t cross.
Still, I'm an outgoing gal, so I do the neighborly thing and offer to be his dating insider.
Surely, I can help this small town’s most eligible bachelor ever navigate his way through all the fantastic single ladies eager to make his acquaintance.
What could possibly go wrong in helping the dream guy next door find his one true love?
So I set him up on one date, two dates, three dates -- and I’m about to find out exactly how dangerous my offer is.

Book Reviews


A sweet single parents romance4 star

3.5 stars The Dream Guy Next Door was a sweet single parents romance. Liam and January are next door neighbors. They try to fight their attraction as they are looking for different things. However being just friends and next door neighbors did not satisfy them. I enjoyed reading about their friendship. They got along so well. The banter and interactions were entertaining. So it was just a matter of time before the friendship would lead to more. I liked the progression of their relationship. It was heartwarming to see the care and love they had for each other grow. I also loved how Liam and January were great parents to their kids, Ethan (Liam) and Wednesday (January). Those kids were just the best. Overall this was a nice story with the typical Lauren Blakley flair.45

Not bad3 star

It wasn’t that I didn’t like the story. I just didn’t love it. It started slow and at times I found myself drifting during the story. I love Lauren’s books but this one wasn’t one of my favorites. Your not going to love every single book that you read and that’s ok because you can still love the author and love their next book. Until next time y’all happy reading.35
