There is only one thing in life that professional pastry Chef Priscilla Westcott values more than baking and wine, and that’s honesty. A quality she soon learns that her marriage lacks when her husband runs off with their next door neighbor.
Divorced and alone, Priscilla is determined to make changes in her life. She decides to approach her new goals like one of her beloved recipes. Surely with a little time, a dash of patience, and measured planning she can whip herself—and her life—back into shape.
However, when a new—and utterly delicious—neighbor takes up residence in the house that ruined her marriage, Pricilla fears that her careful world will fold faster than a deflated soufflé.
Trent Walker knows what he wants and his sweet, sassy neighbor is at the top of the list. He’s certain that the chemistry between them would be explosive, but Priscilla fears that an affair with him, however hot, could be a recipe for disaster.
Life Next Door is the first book I have read by J.D. Hollyfield I can tell you now it won’t be the last. I was lucky enough to be given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes....
This book is funny, it’s quirky and slightly odd but that’s also what makes it brilliant.
Cece is one of the weirdest and most bizarre characters that I have ever had the pleasure of reading.
From page one I had a massive grin on my face and that’s how I stay from start to finish.
This book calls a spade a spade and it’s so true women are fickle, we like wine and chocolate and if all else fails those things will make us happy!!!
Holy hell this book is super sexy, the sex scenes are outrageously intense and passionate and Christ if Trent was an actual person not a fictional character I would be putting my name down for one.
Trent is the perfect guy! He’s alpha, he’s ripped, he’s adorable and above all else he knows what the G Spot is and how to use it lol!!!
This book is essentially about love and cakes and really what’s better than cake and good sex!!!!
I love how this book is in places narrated by Cece because her inner monologue is bloody hilarious!!!
Cece and Trent are adorable they have a passionate connection but it’s also the small gestures that make them such a sweet couple.
This book also made me incredibly hungry lol please someone bring me cake!!!
I really liked this book it was perfect for the mood I was in, it’s easy, funny, witty and super romantic this book gets 4 stars from me!!!

As the title of my blog gives away I read a lot!!! I love the escapism of a good book and sometimes I even enjoy the release I get from moaning about a rubbish book.
Im not sure anyone will ever read my reviews but I'm going to do them anyway.... sometimes I read so much and so quickly that I can completely forget what ive read or the reasons I loved them so this way I can gain a little perspective.
I have a facebook page and I would love it if anyone who reads any of my reviews pops over to FB and gives me a quick like.
Also im constantly looking for recommendations so if you've read something you think I would enjoy please comment and let me know.
