Bad Boy Next Door (Downey Brothers, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Bad Boy Next Door: Downey Brothers Series by Mara Leigh

My rating: 4 of 5 stars.


I can’t be pissed at my dad. His neglect made me strong. I might be young, but I can take care of myself, take care of my sister—take care of anything. 

But now Dad’s doing someone else’s time, and in exchange he gets protection, my sister gets college, and I get a low-rent apartment—a freaking miracle in San Francisco. All I have to do is keep the man who arranged dad’s deal happy—some guy named Nick. 

What I didn’t expect was for Nick to be the biggest, sexiestman I’ve ever met. And I certainly didn’t expect I’d ever consider letting someone else take care of me for a change. 


When the new girl moved in, I felt like the luckiest guy alive. 

She wants to keep things casual, but there’s nothing remotely casual about the intense fire between us. 

Or how her anger’s gonna burn when she finds out that I’m not the Nick she thinks I am. 

Bad Boy Next Door

Nice story about mistaken identity.

Jade is moving to a new apartment which has been set up for her in some sort of deal brokered by her Dad for serving more jail time than he would otherwise serve. The deal also is gets him protection in prison, pays for her sisters college and she gets a job. The only stipulation is that she has to treat Nick at her apartment complex really good since Nick set up the deal for them.

Jade meets her next door neighbor, Nick when she is moving in and treats him very bad before even learning his name. So she sets out to make a better impression and ends up doing him a bunch of favors. Once she starts falling fo him, he begins to feel a bit bad for taking advantage since he knows he isn’t the Nick she thinks he is (the one from her Dad’s deal) and she hates liars.

“The scent was almost enough to distract me from the sight of her ass. Almost. I started to drool. As if I wasn’t already turned on by this woman, she’d fucking made me biscuits! I was rock hard. Hard at the sight of biscuits. What a pervert.”

The book is good, it has a good backstory, possessiveness, Some jealously, criminal activity, a strip club, a difficult choice and more.
