Next to You (Love with Altitude #1) Reviews
A sweet friends to lover’s story, that's light and fun, without stupid drama.
Sage and Lee, or Stan, as she sometimes calls him, have been neighbors and friends for some time. But it isn't until his ankle injury that words beyond friendship, are shared. One drug induced comment, mild flirting, and some overly aggressive competition later, pushes their friendship to a new level.
Since this book picks up right where the flirting ramps up, it’s easy to see how they would be compatible. Sage and Lee ...more
Stan, when under the influence of some good meds, and exhaustion have words just pop out of his mouth, “if you want to date me, all you need to do is say the word. I’d never let you go.” My thoughts become words as I feel myself being dragged under a wave of sleep." Stan is a grabby man, “did you squeeze my ***?” I’m still cupping it. “That answers my question. Are you going to let go?” She hasn’t jumped away. God bless whoever invented yoga pants. Reluctantly, I let go." I loved this book I lov ...more
What a good book to read!
Yes, some may say it's predictable. But even predictable reads can be good and enjoyable. This is the exact kind of "sweet" read I enjoy! I didn't even see the time passing while I read it (2 hours can fly when you're having fun).
The characters are good, the story isn't overly complicated, it's fun and romantic. I really liked reading it!
I rounded up because Stan the Man Bun is just simply: awesome. And I adore his afrikaans commentary. Though I might be a bit biased, since I am married to a rugby playing South Africa... (no man bun, thankfully)
A sweet story of friends becoming lovers.
Though I wish there were more friend bits. It was kinda not enough for me.
Sage is interesting, unique and likable female lead. Totally love Zoe and Sage's family
But I was not a fan of the rest of the support cast. Most of of Stanley Ber ...more
1.5 stars rounded to 2.
This was just an ok read. It wasn't anything that hadn't been done before, and while I don't mind the cliches and overdone tropes, this book was boring. The character and plot needed more development in order for me to be engaged and invested in the outcome of this story.
What I liked:
1) The dual povs.
2) Friends before lovers is always preferred to ONS or just a casual hook up resulting in a relationship. I like it when the MCs know and care about each other before they pur ...more
Oh, Stan and your man-bun. Who can resist the South African accent, the rugby-athlete hotness, all wrapped up in a wounded puppy? :D I love the dual pov, it really lets you get into the heads of both characters and see where this so-called bet gets them!
You will be sucked in immediately! A PERFECT beach read!
Noooooooooooo! Just no!
I have major beef with this book. I'm from South Africa AND I'm a native Afrikaans speaker - who enjoys swearing. The use of "colloquial" Afrikaans in this book is just plain wrong and frankly - inaccurate. No one swears like that here except gangsters from the notorious 28s gang on the cape flats or people who have previously served terms in pollsmoor prison.
I can appreciate that some research may have happened here (demonstrated by the good old PK) but it should have be ...more
Pretty cute, humorous, sweet and sexy friends to lovers romance that I truly enjoyed. Daisy does her lumberjack type guys well this time Lee is a rugby player of South African descent which makes him interesting. Cultural stuff and how he grew up is very type . Sage is a dreamer, passionate about many things and her next door neighbor is one of them. She's a caring person when Lee gets injured and the start of bet that helped move their friendship to more.
The banter between this two is so enter ...more
