Shy's Review ~ The Dream Guy Next Door by Lauren Blakely

The Dream Guy Next Door (Guys Who Got Away, #1)The Dream Guy Next Door by Lauren Blakely
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fun and enjoyable. Those were my first thoughts on this story.

Liam and January are next door neighbors who meet and have an instant connection. They're both single parents with several interests in common but have one big difference. They both see their lives and immediate futures heading in different directions. January just got out of a long, loveless marriage and isn't looking to be tied down by a relationship. Liam has been single for years and is looking to settle down and make a home for him and his son.

I really liked the way Lauren Blakely was able to resolve this issue when the two were on such seemingly opposite ends. A lot of the details and the right solution was really found and developed over the course of the story. It wasn't one of those that was obvious and staring them both in the face in my opinion. And I loved how neither of them just had to give up everything to be with the other. It left me happy and really satisfied with the ending.

Overall this was a good story with a solid plot and flow of the story. It had great characters including the kids, parents and friends. And I even loved that the ex didn't need to be painted as some horrible person for the story to work. I would absolutely recommend this one.
