What happens when one night turns into eighteen years?
There’s nothing like starting your Monday morning with a positive pregnancy test.
Trust me, I know. Because I’m looking at one right now.
All I can think is: Oh, hell. My grandmother is going to kill me.
This might just send her to an early grave, so there’s only one option—pretending the father is my new husband.
If only he’d agree to fake it.
Kai Connors was supposed to be nothing more than a one-night stand. A long, dirty, one-night stand fueled by one too many tequila shots, where the only promise was to never speak of it again.
But if my unfairly sexy next-door neighbor gets his way, this fake marriage could turn out to be very, very real…

Cute & Quirky Read
THE GIRL NEXT DOOR by Emma Hart picks up immediately following the, ahem, action in Emma's sexy snippet of a prequel, THE ONE NIGHT STAND NEXT DOOR. I already loved Kai and Ivy, so getting this story was like getting to the eagerly awaited main course after an appetizer that's really done its job.
This might be one of my most favorite of Emma's couples of late. Yes, Ivy is sassy and snarky, but Kai is already all in. From the minute that he finds out that he and Ivy are going to be intertwined for the next, oh, 18 years or so, he's ready to dive in with both feet. Heck, he's already swimming laps, waiting for Ivy to catch up. I love that Emma has written Kai as sure of himself, yet vulnerable at the same time.
Ivy, for all of her bravado, really can use a partner, and Kai totally fills the bill. Facing a future she didn't anticipate, dealing with her well-meaning but nutty family, and navigating the shenanigans of a small town takes a team, and a village, and Ivy has lucked out in both departments.
There is the usual cast of wonderful secondary characters, family and friends that are the perfect foils to Ivy and Kai, and, hey, guess what, they're getting stories, too...yay! Fans of romantic comedy with sides of sweetness and heat will love Kai and Ivy and THE GIRL NEXT DOOR. Make sure to grab it, and enjoy.❤️
Another great rom-com from Emma!
Another great rom-com from Emma! Somewhat of an abrupt start, Ivy finds out she is pregnant resulting from a one-night stand with her neighbor Kai. Across from her apartment, Kai has always had a huge crush on Ivy but has never acted on things until the party that brought them together. Now somewhat forced together, Ivy informs Kai he’s going to be a father and he takes it as his chance to be in her life potentially for good. I found myself constantly laughing out loud over the fact that these two had strong feelings for each other but were scared to act on them. Throwing in the hilarity of them pretending to be engaged and married just for Ivy’s grandmother while her father knows the truth added in another level of comedy. In the end, the chemistry between these two were strong enough to come to the surface and while they wouldn’t rush into things because of the pregnancy, they did decide to give each other a real chance at a relationship. Forever loving the witty banter and comedy that Emma gives readers in her books, and I can’t wait for the next one!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Hot Neighbor and one night
Like all of Emma Hart's books I flew through this one and enjoyed every minute of it.
Kai and Ivy story was a fun, fluffy read. There were many laugh out loud moments as well. These characters as well as the side characters were all very love-able. Ivy's relationship with her family members made the book more enjoyable and her grandmother was a hoot with her "demands/thoughts".
I can't wait to read about Ivy's friends and sisters stories.
