Publisher Description

After a blind date stands her up, Catrina Striker stops in O’Leary’s Pub for a sandwich, nothing else. Then Tony Bates, North Salem’s resident playboy, sits down next to her and destiny takes over. Cat knows all about Tony’s reputation, but that doesn’t stop her from doing something she’s never done before: invite him back to her apartment.

Tony Bates has always looked at Catrina as nothing but his buddy’s little sister, until a chance encounter one summer night changes all that.

Since the sudden death of his college sweetheart, Tony has kept all his relationships casual and fun. Everyone knows that, which is why Cat and Tony agree to keep their involvement a secret rather than risk Tony’s friendship with her brother. However, what starts out as a secret fling soon becomes much more, and Tony must decide if he’s ready to risk his heart again or lose the woman who completes him. 

The Playboy Next Door is the third book in USA Today Best Selling Author Christina Tetreault’s Love On The North Shore Series. While it can easily be read as a standalone story, you'll likely enjoy reading the other books, too.

Very good

I love a romance where the playboy is stopped in his tracks by the younger sister of his good friend...and this one does not disappoint. Cat and Tony didn’t plan for their relationship to become something special but, when it does it creates a big bump in the road and you hold your breath to see is they get their happy ending.

The Playboy Next Door

Enjoyed the book.

The Playboy Next Door was an enjoyable read. Liked the HEA ending. It was late into the novel before you realized where Tony's fear of commitment steamed from. It was good not to figure it out until the author revealed it for us.
