      Slowly but surely, I ve come to love Jennifer Echols books.It s just that she has this writing style, so carefree and fearless and teenagery.I only know another author that writes teenagers this real, and that s Queen Meg Cabot,so it makes me happy there s someone out there who portrays teenagers as real as they come.This book didn t let me down.I ve wanted this book ever since I read the summary a looong time ago on.It sounded fun, and summery and had the extra awesome factor that I loooove wit [...]

      3.5 StarsThe Boys Next Door by Jennifer Echols has TWO of my favorite plot devices Two 1 Love for the boy next door, which is one of my biggest weaknesses The heartbreaking, sweet idea of seeing someone everyday that you have the biggest crush on just makes my heart ache with love and anticipation Plus if you haven t guessed already once upon a time, the boy next door stole my heart D2 The pretending you are a couple scheme The shenanigans and aching hearts that go along with this ruse always ma [...]

      I don t know if it s just me, but periodically throughout the book, I had trouble understanding many of the sentences and was confused about why they were there what purpose they served within the context surrounding them Also, I felt like the ADHD ADD was sort of just thrown in there just to make a point just to be there.And why exactly was Lori sooo self bashing and dumb Why would she think she wanted to be with Sean who is a jerk When I decided to read this book for whatever reason, I didn t [...]

      2015 Reading Challenge 34 A book with a love triangle Un romance tierno en donde el peor de los problemas es que el chico que te gusta no se fija en ti Si hubiese le do esto cuando ten a 15 a os, probablemente me hubiese encantado El problema es que ya no tengo 15 a os y mi tolerancia a la estupidez es mucho menor Y este libro tiene muchas estupideces, cortes a de Lori aka la protagonista.Estupidez 1 Me trata mal porque me ama.Desde el principio es evidente que Sean es un idiota, pero Lori est t [...]

      Need an adorable book Here you go This novel is sweet, funny and light hearted, which we all know is something we crave for once in a while It s predictable, but mostly because that s the way we want it to end, too The only thing that really made me cringe was the ending, because it s too cheesy, even for me, which is something you won t here me say often However, I still loved reading this novel and I m convinced Jennifer Echols is one of the best cheesy writers out there in a good way I m warn [...]

      I bought this book based upon an older review of Steph s and that one of my podcast listeners had recommended Echols as someone to check out I ll admit right here that I am a bit of a softie when it comes to romantic comedy storylines that don t insult the intelligence This is one of those and now I have to figure out where to get Echols is the YA equivalent of crack except without all the obvious pitfalls.I loved the protagonist s voice, Lori is the inner dialogue that runs through every femal [...]

    8. Tough Critic Book Reviews on said:

      ROMANCE OR WHAT This may be my favorite Jennifer Echol s book If you think this is going to be just another typical summer romance, think again I was swept away into Lori s world from the beginning Lori lives next door to the Vader brothers She s always wanted nothing than to be just one of the guys she dresses the part, acts the part But this summer being just one of the guys is the last thing on Lori s mind She is head over hills in love with the boy next door one of them at least.I have to a [...]

    9. Genesis on said:

      Okay so when Lori wanted Sean that was understandable in the beginning, although it got pretty stupid when Sean was smacking lips with Adams girlfriend by this time I knew Sean never liked Lori As I read the story I thought Well maybe it ll get better I was wrong at least in my perspectiveyways there was some good things I read such as the fact I thought it was cute how she wanted show her crush she was not just like the other guys and that she wanted to be treated and seen as a girl Lori s per [...]

    10. Lolita on said:

      This book is a great example of how a book with simple writing can still be extraordinary You don t always need complicated storylines, strange character names, fantasy elements and insta love, to write a great book Don t get me wrong, this definitely was not a masterpiece in any way, but every single character seemed real and had it s own voice and story Both Lori and Adam felt like real teenagers, acted like them, talked like them and most importantly thought like them There were several situa [...]

      Re read Is it cheesy Yes Is the plot occasionally a bit too ridiculous to be fully believable Yes.Is the main character frustrating Yes But good lord is it an endearing, cute read It s silly It s ridiculous But every time I pick it up, I can t put it down I reread this book in a single sitting and enjoyed every single second.Side note I ve never read the sequel, but I have the ebook of the bind up, so I might continue on to it That being said, I tend to consider this a standalone So that s how I [...]

      Rating 3 starsEh An overall fun read, but short and suuuuper predictable.

    13. Laura on said:

      I won this book in a giveaway ages ago It is actually a set of two books The Boys Next Door and Endless Summer Just so s you know, I would not actually purchase a book with the title, The Boys Next Door I don t generally go for books in which the central conflict is whether a fella is interested or not A book should be able to survive without love interests However, I was looking for something light to read in my garden on a sunny day The book was okay, but it really was just about a decidedly p [...]

    14. Steph Su on said:

      The I read Jennifer Echols, the I m convinced she can do no wrong in terms of fun and fast romantic comedy reads All of the characters in this book are realistic yet quirky, endearing and fun Adam, in particular, is my favorite, because he is not simply the perfect crush, the perfect boyfriend Instead, he is wonderfully three dimensional, ADD and a little spastic and a daredevil to the point of physical harm In short, he is a giant, sweet nerd inside a hot body Who can resist that Lori s narra [...]

      I enjoyed this book but I can t say that this is my favorite Jennifer Echols book ever That would be Forget You Even though I love Going Too Far Forget You was much fun The Boy Next Door was a book you should definitely pick up in the summer.

    18. Zethu on said:

      Classic story combining young love and coming of age As always with books outside my genres of interest a friend recommended it to and I can honestly say I m glad she did It s light hearted and fun, don t expect a serious and thought provoking depiction of its themes Some might struggle with Lori and her almost Disney esque thought process and ideas and the predictability of the ending but at the end of the day you want it to happen and that s where the charm is Sweat and cheesy a good summer sn [...]

      Lori is a tomboy who spends her summers on the lake with her brother and their friends The problem is they are all boys and Lori wants them to notice her this summer, because of her long time crush on Sean Vader Adam, the younger Vader brother, is her best friend and getting Sean s attention isn t going to be as drama free as she thought Lori has a hard time navigating between the role of Adam s best friend and Sean s wanna be girlfriend The Boys Next Door by Jennifer Echols is a fun read that i [...]

      So the number one rule in college is when a report is due the next day and you have to pull an all nighter, read cute books I didn t make the rule, I am just a follower So naturally after slaving for hours over a subject I really don t give a fart about, I decided to take a break Er a three hour break Thankfully over winter break I had bought a bunch of cheap books to entertain me during these type of crisis I am happy to say that this book was worth the dollar I paid We start off meeting Lori w [...]

      Adam Vader or what I absolutely LOVED this book I read it in one day I could NOT put it down We hear the story from Lori s mind, and it just flows so smoothly It was really fun being inside her mind I could very easily imagine everything that was happening.There are two aspects of this book that just absolutely excelled the setting and the characters Lori lives on a lake next door to the Vaders, a family with three sons She spent her childhood hanging out with them and her brother, being one of [...]

      I am such a sucker for boy next door or older brother s best friend romance plots I DON T KNOW WHY I just think they are so sweet I also love tomboy turned love interest characters Well lucky me, this book has pretty much all of that awesome Not only does it employ some of my favorite plot elements, but the characters are actually REALLY likeable There were a lot of parts in this book where I was shamelessly LOL ing Fanny the Nanny Butt I don t need a governess Come on Golden I ve come to realiz [...]

      Another great and easy read this is definitely for all those who love the cliched teen romance books Ofcourse this book has a love triangle centred around two boys, in this case brothers.The book is about a teenage girl named Lori, who ends up hanging out with the two Vader boys during the Summer She has always had a secret crush on the older, attractive, confident and popular brother Sean, and to her this Summer is the perfect opportunity for her to show him just how girlfriend material she is [...]

      I finished this book in the WEE hours of the morning Like 4 am It was REALLY cute I was a little worried in the beginning when she s having trouble knowing which brother is which without looking for Adam s necklace I mean, she s known these guys since she was like 4 years old How could she not know which was which I have two guys friends who are identical twins and after knowing them for about 6 months, I could tell who was who from the backs of their heads, you know Okay maybe not the BACKS of [...]

    26. Pilar Marin on said:

      I liked this book, it was different to other books that I ve read of the same genre, in which romance happens during unrealistic situations, while in this story they were pretty real I like the protagonist, Lori, her actions made me remember those times in which I was 16 and I did a lot of immature things In many scenes of the book I felt embarrassed while reading what Lori was doing or scheming,38dia.tumblr a8b10aaf6 but I remembered that at her age I did similar things.well, we all have done s [...]

      Lori is super annoying, stupid and IDIOTIC.She wants to prove to Sean that she s girlfriend material Here s the thing she s not AND Sean s a jerk.Lori is a copycat of Rachel Weinstein from Magic in Manhattan Volume One and Anna Oliphant from Anna and the French Kiss, but the worst version ever She s annoying.The ADHD ADD also seemed random Like Jennifer Echols was just like, Hey, books with kids with disabilities are succesful so I should add one in And then she changed the storyline This book [...]
