Book Review for The Boy Next Door by Cheryl Terra

 The Boy Next Door: An If You Can Prequel Novella by Cheryl Terra

Published January 1, 2024 by Bang It Out Writing

Taken from Goodreads
Nellie Belanger never intended to start university as a virgin. But even though she’s determined to have her first time before the summer is over, she has two requirements:

1. She doesn’t want to end up in a relationship.
2. She wants it to be a little more special than “we met at a nightclub and I’m pretty sure your name starts with an N.”

Which shouldn’t be that hard to find… right? After all, all she wants is a no-strings-attached hook up that isn’t completely anonymous.

Someone who she can have fun with and who won’t spread rumours about her.

Someone who would be a bit more memorable than a generic guy in a backwards hat that looks completely different once they step out of the dim lighting of a bar.

Someone who knows what he’s doing so her first time won’t suck as much as everyone says the first time does.

Someone kind of like the boy next door, her best friend’s older brother with the great smile and reputation for sleeping around.

And who just so happens to be the guy she’s crushed on since she was a kid…

The Boy Next Door is the spicy prequel to the If You Can series, taking place 3 years before Kiss Me If You Can, a spicy unconventional romance coming April 12, 2024.


My Thoughts:  The Boy Next Door is a quick book to read.  It is the story of a young women who just wants to lose her virginity, or she thinks she wants to.    She goes on dates, goes to bars, and turns everyone down.   I was hoping that she would not just give it up and get it over with.   I wanted her to find Mr. Right, even if he wasn’t Mr. Right forever.   

The book has a lot of spicy scenes.   Sometimes it seemed repetitive and I was able to skim a paragraph or two.    I liked most of the story and am looking forward to the next book in this series.  

Thank you Cheryl Terra for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
