Return to Book Page. Preview — Naughty Neighbor by Janet Evanovich. Dear Reader: In a previous life, before the time of Plum, I wrote twelve short romance novels. Red-hot screwball comedies, each and every one of them. Nine of these stories were originally published by the Loveswept line between the years and All immediately went out of print and could be found only at used bookstores and yard sales.
I'm excited to tell you that t Dear Reader: In a previous life, before the time of Plum, I wrote twelve short romance novels. I'm excited to tell you that those nine stories are now being re-released by HarperCollins.
Naughty Neighbor is the eighth in the lineup, and it's presented here in almost original form. Usually when I edit these books I do some modernizing. I do this because the books were meant to be contemporary as opposed to historical , and I don't want the reader to have a time disconnect.
In the beginning of the original Naughty Neighbo r, my heroine throws a handheld phone into the toilet, and the next morning she goes into the bathroom and sees the "slim silver antenna caught between the toilet lid and seat.
And I don't know how many women wear front-closure bras anymore, but that got left in, too. Naughty Neighbor is probably the most romancey of all the Loveswepts I wrote, but there's still a small mystery to unravel. Louisa Brannigan is a no-nonsense, hardworking press secretary, fighting her way to the top of Capitol Hill, with no help from her annoying neighbor, Pete Streeter.
He receives phone calls all night long, he steals her morning paper, he thinks jeans are formal wear, and worst of all he's involved Louisa in the disappearance of a pig. So this is the story of a pig in Witness Protection and love being found by a workaholic woman and a fun-loving man who makes terrible pots of coffee. Janet Evanovich Get A Copy.

I give their relationship a year. I thought maybe I could shuffle this one under 2 or 1. The "political thriller" bit totally fell apart. The relationship itself is all lust and hormones.
It won't last. And if it does? Well, I'd be sad for the heroine. Be more assertive! Go to law school! But I feel like instead she'll bumb around with this rich loser till his laundry habits drive her insane and then she'll move back in with her Mom. Either that or she will finally succumb to her weird phobia of women named Bambi and go get botox. Gosh, I'm depressing myself!
But really, their relationship is depressing! Jun 27, Alp rated it it was amazing Shelves: contemporary-romance. After reading both positive and negative reviews, I decided to read this book anyway. I'm glad I did because it was incredibly good though it was a bit cheesy. I found the story was funny, entertaining, fast-paced, and so sweet. This book mainly focused on the hero and heroine who were so adorable. I loved the way they were attracted to each other. Both of them weren't perfect, but they were perfect together!
Oh, so cute! I had a good time reading it! View all 4 comments. Jun 16, Cheri rated it liked it. A short entertaining beach read. Early works of JE are just some fun reading!
Mar 24, Marianne rated it liked it. This one is mainly romance with a touch of very vague intrigue. There is some fun dialogue, but the story is just a bit too drawn out. Aug 24, Kari Anderson rated it liked it. You just started. Naughty Neighbor is before the Stephanie Plum era, but I see a lot of similarities. The lead female is always witty, the lead male s is always dreamy and the family is always a riot, especially the grandma.
Definitely rang true in this book as well. I almost forgot to mention the great use of animals. In this one, a former journalist Pete is trying to break a crazy story about a politician.
Right down my alley. It starts with Pete and his neighbor Louisa. They know everything about each other before meeting because the walls are thin. They hate each other in the beginning, but in the end … yeah right.
I will leave you with a couple of parts of the book that I loved though. There was a daisy on her plate. It only had one petal left.
Death by doughnut. I had 7 letters to fill for my A to Z Challenge and stumbled upon this for N. I am really glad I found it because it was a good book. One three different pages, I found errors.
One page had a set of squiggly lines between words. And finally, there was a missing apostrophe. And it completely changed the sentence.
Pete Streeter came awake on the third ring—just in time to hear the answering machine pick up the call. The message came at all hours of the day and night. It was untraceable, originating from public phones throughout the city. It was cryptic.
REVIEW: Naughty Neighbor by Janet Evanovich
Pete Streeter never figured on finding such an attractive partner in crime. Louisa is all he ever wanted in a woman, and more. But once he's taught her to enjoy living on the edge, will she finally feel safe in his love? I think your right these are quick reads.
