Review by Fern

Feeling down after a bad breakup, Adriana tries to find distractions to help her move on with her life. New neighbor Ben seems like a good start…until she meets Ben’s wife, Cassie.

Determined to be a friendly neighbor, however, Adriana decides to be social. When Ben and Cassie’s first dinner party turns kinky, Adriana discovers there is plenty to keep her thoughts, and body, occupied.

What’s a heartbroken girl to do after a devastating break-up has ruined her hopes for a meaningful relationship? If she’s lucky, she can turn to her sexy new neighbor and his equally lovely wife for comfort. Thus is the premise of Just Being Neighborly.

Adriana’s former boyfriend was not only cheating; he got the girl in question pregnant and promptly proposed. Her love life in the aftermath is non-existent, and at the present moment, doesn’t appear to be going anywhere. Jaded and disillusioned, she becomes intrigued by her new upstairs neighbors. A few friendly dinners and casual encounters with Andrew and Cassie leave her curious. They are an extremely open couple who tempt her beyond reason. She just has no idea how open they truly are, and how involved she’ll become with them, until she walks in on their bondage session.

Aside from a few awkward word choices and repetition here and there, the story was a very enjoyable read. Just Being Neighborly is a perfect read for someone looking for something short, hot, and fast-paced.


  1. I’m a fan of Nicole and I just love how she mixes her English cultural background with her hot and heavy romance. The book for me was a great read. I can’t wait to see more of her.It saddens me to see her counted off for using words from her country of origin and having them considered awkward. I’m sure words in our language are just as awkward to her at times.
