Bad Neighbor by Molly O'Keefe ~ Review & Quote-tastic (@MollyOKwrites)

I'm a bit of a sucker for Bad Boy Romances, so it's not surprising that I enjoyed Bad Neighbor. And for my first Molly O'Keefe read, I was quite impressed!

He's sexy... He's dangerous... He's right next door.

I gave up everything to save my sister from a monster, and now I’m lying low in this rundown apartment so I can stay out of danger. Hiding from everyone.
Except for the guy in apartment 1A.
He’s rude. Silent. Muscled, mysterious, and hot as hell. I don’t know if he likes me or hates me, but the more time I spend with him, the less it matters.
I want him.
And for the first time in my life I'm going to go after what I want.

She doesn’t belong in my world.

From the second 1B moves in, I know she’s keeping secrets. She doesn’t belong here, much less with a street fighter like me.
But that doesn’t stop me from craving her. Her softness and sweetness. She’s a drug, and suddenly I’m addicted.
I know someone is going to try and hurt her and I can’t let that happen. But unless I push her away and get her out of my world, that someone could be me…

Bad Neighbor was the hot and sexy read I expected it to be! The characters were from different worlds but they found it difficult to deny the chemistry between them. Jesse was the bad boy next door, who fought in an illegal fighting ring, and Charlotte was the good girl, who gave all her money to help her sister, and moved herself into a shady part of town to lay low.

I liked that Jesse and Charlotte were so different. Charlotte was all sweet and innocent but Jesse was able to bring out her darkest, sexual desires. Jesse had that alpha male vibe and wanted to protect Charlotte from the moment she moved in. He was a broody and closed off guy that tried to keep Charlotte at arms length. There was one sizzling encounter (*fans self*), where Charlotte went to Jesse's to confront him about his late night activities, that was the turning point for both of them! Each time these two were together, the harder it was for them to stay away from one another.

This was my first taste of Molly O'Keefe's work, and I really enjoyed it. Neither Jesse or Charlotte were looking for a relationship, but found each other anyway. They encouraged each other to be the best they could and were better people together. There was an element of suspense that grew throughout the story that kept me on my toes too. I know I'll be reading more of Molly's work in the future!

Two little quotes today. The first was a bit cute, and the second made me go 'Hot Dayum!'

“So?” he asked. “How did you end up here?”
My sister fell in love with a sociopath and I had to give her all my money so she could get away from him. You know. The usual.
“Boyfriend kicked me out,” I said instead. Because I was being the opposite of me.
“For real?”
“It’s so hard to believe I have a boyfriend?”
“It’s hard to believe he’d kick you out.”

“You looked good, tonight,” he said.
“Don’t—” I said before I could stop myself.
“Don’t what?”
“I’m not lying. You know you looked good. You strutted away from me like you were fucking Beyonce.”

Molly O'KeefeMolly O'Keefe has always known she wanted to be a writer (except when she wanted to be a florist or a chef and the brief period of time when she considered being a cowgirl). And once she got her hands on some romances, she knew exactly what she wanted to write.

She published her first Harlequin romance at age 25 and hasn't looked back. She loves exploring every character's road towards happily ever after.

Originally from a small town outside of Chicago, she went to university in St. Louis where she met and fell in love with the editor of her school newspaper. They followed each other around the world for several years and finally got married and settled down in Toronto, Ontario. They welcomed their son into their family in 2006, and their daughter in 2008. When she's not at the park or cleaning up the toy room, Molly is working hard on her next novel, trying to exercise, stalking Tina Fey on the internet and dreaming of the day she can finish a cup of coffee without interruption.
