This Time Next Door (Oakland Hills)

Twenty-six-year-old Rose Devlin may shop in the plus-size department, but she’s never had a problem attracting men–with disastrous consequences. Recovering from her latest mistake, Rose has sworn off casual sex and moved to California to grow up, help her best friend, and make something of herself.

When Rose asks the cute-but-geeky guy next door to help her land a job in high tech, she never expects to unearth his quiet strength, stunning accomplishments–and hidden talents. With a secret in her own past, Rose tries to keep her distance, but she finds that nerdy Mark isn’t so nerdy when the lights go out.

And that maybe, just maybe, she’s not too grown up to risk one more disaster…

  1. Enjoyable, fun book This book was cute, fun and a quick read. Rose and Mark were both very likeable characters. It was nice to see Liam and Bev again from “Love Handles”, but you definitely do not need to have read that book to enjoy this one. I have really enjoyed everything I have read so far from this Gretchen Galway (though my favorite so far is “The Supermodel’s Best Friend”). If you are looking for a light-hearted contemporary romance, you can’t go wrong with this book– enjoyable characters and story, good…

  2. Instantly adored this book! After reading a lot of paranormal and other genres I like to switch it up with a few light funny romances, and I hit a home run with Gretchen Galway! I was fortunate to come across it when it was free, though I would have gladly paid full price for this little piece of gold!
