Blake returns home after leaving the Navy SEALS. He needs a place to recuperate, and he wants to catch up with his old friend Steve and Steve's little sister Cathy. He always thought Cathy was off limits because she was his best friend's baby sister. When he sees her, he realizes that the sight of her still makes him act and feel like a teenage boy. Can he show Cathy that he's there to stay, and won't leave her like he did all those years ago?
Cathy and Blake are total opposites. Cathy wants to be independent and not have to rely on anybody. Blake wants to take care of Cathy and show her all the things he is able to do for her. Can Cathy let go of some of her independence and let Blake care for her, or is this relationship doomed?
THE BOY NEXT DOOR is a fantasy most women dream about. Who wouldn't want a cute neighbor that goes away only to come back a hunk? Nicole Austin's story is a high-quality read with all the right twists and turns.
