This was the first book I've read by this author. The blurbs for this series sucked me in. Got to love awkward relationships. Anna's the girl next door. Definitely awkward and a little clumsy. Nick's her older sexy neighbour whose wife passed away a few years ago, leaving him to raise their two kids. Word is going around town that Nick is, shall we say, well endowed. To the point where many women want to find out what all the fuss is about. When a chance flash from his window to hers one night gives her a glimpse to why he's the talk of the town, and her father pushes her to help out Nick in exchange for some tutoring since she's into architecture, things take a surprising turn and a relationship begins. The problem is, Anna's father doesn't know. He trusts Nick, his best friend, to look after his daughter, but not the way Nick is, that's for sure. Things are about to get explosive. Thoroughly enjoyed this book.
I’ve never read anything by Missy before but after reading the blurb and reading a sample, I had to know more! Nick is a single dad of two kids, after his wife died two years earlier. He has just started getting back into the dating field but after a incident leaves a woman in the hospital and rumours floating around town about his ‘anaconda’ he’s not sure if he’s off to a good start. Anna lives next door to Nick, whom she has a crush on, and accidentally sees him naked from her bedroom window one night, after hearing the rumours. She continues to watch him until he catches her and she decides to be bold and turn the tables on him. Her dad is his best friend and he offers her help with the kids so Nick has more time to date, not realising that Anna and Nick are hot for each other!
Loved the story and the interactions between the characters, some of it had me laughing so hard:) Glad it worked out in the end, I was a bit worried how they would let her dad know about them being involved but it worked out in the end! Looking forward to the next book coming out soon.
I’ve listed 8 reasons why it’s complicated: 1. There’s a 15 year age gap between Nick & Anna 2. They’re neighbours 3. He’s a single dad to 2 kids (he’s a widower) 4. Nick & Anna’s dad are best mates 5. He’s packing some serious heat downstairs 6. Most of the school mums know about what he’s packing & are after him 7. Anna & Nick both know that Anna’s dad won’t be cool with this “relationship” 8. The whole town seems to be gossiping about his equipment .
OMG, so this story is awesome! It’s funny and light, a quick read that is definitely entertaining. It’s a taboo story with a few teary moments but, mostly just flirty, sexy, hot and fun to read.
Nick is a single dad with two kids and a lot more. I’d say he has a big secret, but since it’s the talk of the town it’s more of a big topic! He lives next to his best friend Dan and his daughter Anna who needs to know if the rumors are correct so of course, she can’t resist a peak. Their sexual references either misspoken or intentional had me laughing out loud. Anna’s not innocent in fact at times she quite bold, she’s also easily flustered which of course Nick and her friend Kayla have fun with. There’s a lot of sneaking around, close call as well as some tender moments.
This is my first book by Missy Johnson and I want to read more. I’m still smiling as I write this. I rarely reread books but I think I could reread this one and be just as entertained as I was the first time.
Anna’s heard the rumours about Nick, but when she sees him through her bedroom window, she knows she shouldn’t watch, but she can’t help it, he’s her dad’s best friend, but he makes her feel things. When her dad suggest that she helps Nick around the house and with his kids, Anna quickly agrees. The more he sees Anna, the more Nick tries to fight the chemistry they have, she’s he’s best friend’s daughter, but as much as he tries the chemistry wins, even though Anna is terrified with the rumours about Nick’s Anaconda, they can’t fight it, but decide to keep it to themselves. With them not being able to keep their hands of each other, and it’s getting harder to keep what they have from her father, Nick decides on a trip away for Anna and his kids, only problem, Anna’s father invited himself and keeping things hidden got a lot harder.
Book one in the awkward love series and I have read these books out of order so this is the third one of these books and my least favoutite so far. I did enjoy Anna and Nick's story although Nick was no where near alpha enough for me considering the genre of this story - best friends daughter, older man. Good story though and writing was great as always from Missy Johnson. Lots of fun to read, romantic with some really hot sex going on, with some tense moments thrown into the mix this book is well worth the read
I read a blurb for this book. I was intriqued by it. Anna wants to know if the rumor she heard was true. They call him the anaconda and for good reason. Nick is also best friends with Anna's dad.
I liked the forbidden romance and it builds on that. I enjoyed this story. It was a bit predictable at times but there was a few twists in it as well. I enjoyed the character's in this book. I couldn't help but root for Nick and Anna. They had amazing chemistry between them. Anna's best friend Kayla was a hoot.
**I received a copy for an honest review** **Reviewed for JoandIsaLoveBooksBlog**
I rate this story 3.5. It was an ok read. I thought the characters had great chemistry and were pretty hot together. I found Anna to blow hot and cold a lot. One minute she would say she was all for a relationship then all of a sudden won’t talk to Nick. Then the climax at the end came out of no where... not even any lead up to it so I couldn’t quite grasp the seriousness of the situation since there wasn’t the anticipation of what might happen. It was just bam, it’s there. The storyline otherwise was great and I liked the concept. My opinion is just one out of many.
First book I’ve read by the author. Won’t be the last! A cute story of falling for your Dads best friend, getting caught watching him next door, teasing through the window. She heard rumours and needed to know if the anaconda was true. But that’s not everything that makes it complicated, it’s the sneaking around behind your fathers back that will be the most complicated... It had some funny moments but it was a great quick read.
