I'm back with another book from the lovely Therese Beharrie. This one was rather a unique story and had me intrigued, so I couldn't refuse the chance to read it, when Therese got in touch with me. Thank you Therese!

Jessica Steyn has been enjoying the view from her best friends house a lot more since her delicious neighbour arrived home. Watching him chop wood in the garden has proven quite heart racing entertainment, while her friend has been away. The last thing Jessica wants to do is be seen, but when an accident has Jessica rushing out of the front door to help, she soon finds out that the man she has been ogling, isn't  just some random guy next door and the way she feels about him could complicate things quite a bit! Can she stay away though? 

I found Jessica's character very sweet and selfless in this book. She still carried scars from the way her parents had treated her growing up, yet she was so kind to everyone and was willing to do anything for those that she loved; something she definitely didn't learn from her parents. She was funny and flirty and just needed someone to show her that she was worth loving. That person just so happened to come in the form of her friends hunky neighbour Dylan Nel, who also happened to be said best friends brother! Dylan was really cute and the attraction between him and Jessica was undeniable. They clearly had chemistry but weren't sure if they could act on it, which made for funny and endearing dialogue between the two. I enjoyed their back and forth banter and the moments when they allowed themselves to flirt and like it.

As well as romance, 'Tempted by the Billionaire Next Door' also dealt with family troubles; Jessica was trying to come to terms with parents who didn't want her and Dylan was trying to fix what he thought he had broken two years ago, between him and his sister. On first meeting, Jessica and Dylan thought they had each other figured out, but upon finding out more about each others pasts and what they were both going through, they realized that no family is perfect and you really can't judge a book by its cover. I think this helped them both to help each other with their individual problems. They understood one another, which gave them a stronger bond. I liked it when they were on the same page and were there for each other. They hadn't known each other very long, but they had that instant special connection.

If you're looking for an easy going read that has heart, family bonds and acts of love and kindness, then you don't want to miss 'Tempted by the Billionaire Next Door.

Happy Reading!


  1. I've been getting back into reading so I'm reading basically every book review post I can find! This book almost sounds like it could be made into a Hallmark Channel movie!
