Summer is almost over, and I’m trying to get in every last bit of beach time. Growing up and living in Florida, the ocean is a pretty big part of my life. That’s why, when I dreamed up my first contemporary romance, I ended up setting it in Florida.
I’ve had the idea for Lexi, Ben, and Matt’s story for a while, and I knew it would be a college-set story. So when it came time to write it, it only made sense to place the story in Miami…the very city where I went to law school. And when we’re talking about Miami, what’s more iconic than South Beach?
Just for fun, I thought I’d post some of the pictures that inspired me while writing The Boys Next Door:
If, like me, you’re addicted to the ocean (and to hot boys, lol), you might want to give The Boys Next Door a try.
After a heartbreaking betrayal, Lexi Ferrell is determined to get far away from her small hometown. So when she scores a scholarship to a prestigious law school in Miami, she jumps at the chance to live right on South Beach. Sun, sand, and an endless stream of beautiful people: who could resist? But her apartment complex provides far more than she asked for…in the form of two yummy new neighbors.
Matt Eisler and Ben Santos are best friends. Nothing could tear them apart…or so they thought. But when Lexi enters their life, neither one can resist wanting to make her his own.
Torn between the hot surfer boy and his exotic Latino roommate, Lexi vows to stay away from them both. But as she soon discovers, Matt and Ben are impossible to resist. And they’ll take her any way they can get her…even if it’s together. Could the three of them ever make it work? Because now that she’s experienced one night of unforgettable passion, the last thing she could ever do is choose between the boys next door.
For those of you who may have missed it, The Boys Next Door will be on sale through the end of this weekend for only 99 CENTS.
