    Great summer read!

    3.5 Stars! The Aussie Next Door is about two people who struggle to fit in with the outside world find comfort in each other. For the first time they find someone who can accept them for who they are if they don't let their own securities get in the way. Jace has high functioning Autism. He functions better with a routine and occasionally needs alone time to recharge. He's from a big, loving family that can be too loud at times and he feels like he is constantly compared to his brothers. When his one and only relationship fails, he doesn't believe he will find someone who will adjust to his quirks. Angie grew up in foster care, moving from family to family and sorely mistreated. She still struggles with a need to please people due to her abandonment issues. When lawyers exposed her troubles in the states in the foster care system, she moves to Australia to get away from her problems. I felt for both Jase and Angie's characters. I liked both of them and wished their insecurities didn't stand so much in the way of finding love. I was a bit surprised to find that this was a heavier story than I was expecting, but it was also very heartwarming. These two were very easy to root for love to conquer all. The small towns setting and the side characters brought a lot to the story. I could see hints of possible couples for future books in this series. I even loved the two dogs!

    Review: The Aussie Next Door

    The Aussie Next Door by Stefanie London is a sweet romance set in a small town Australia. Angie Donovan has escaped her past in America and found a fresh start in a new place that feels exactly like she believes home should be. Renting a small apartment from one of the hottest guys she's ever laid eyes on doesn't hurt. Even if he is a bit quirky and distant. Jace, on the other hand, doesn't quite know what to make of his tenant. Her smiles, her non-stop chatter, her outgoing energy. It's a lot for someone as introverted as he is but she is a bright spot in his life that he soon learns he can't live without. Less a tale of how an American can stay in Australia and more a tale of how two people, vastly different, and each with their own issues, can learn to overcome their pasts and move forward. Sweet and sexy in all the right places, well-paced, and well-written, this was a great romance. Enjoy!

    The Aussie Next Door

    This one took me by surprise. It was sweet and satisfying but not what I expected. Two people who were not and should not have worked but when they finally settled into a friendship these two became two halves of a puzzle that fit together. **Received this ARC for review from the publisher via NetGalley**

    A Fun Read

    Angie and Jace’s love story in The Aussie Next Door by Stefanie London, book one in her Patterson’s Bluff series, was a wonderful story. Angie and Jace are two misfits who believe they will never be loved nor appreciated for the talents each one shares with the world. Angie was a foster kid who escaped to Australia to hide but when her visa clock is ticking she needs to find a way to stay. Maybe getting married to an Australian isn’t the smartest idea but it would allow her stay. All thoughts goes to falling in love with her landlord and next-door neighbor, Jace, who’s hot and funny. Jace loves the solitude of being alone. After getting a diagnosis of being on spectrum edge, he’s found his niche working on a syndicated comic strip; one that reflects his life. Angie is his opposite, loud and outgoing, while also being beautiful and sexy. When Angie helps Jace take care of two dogs they discover an attraction that is mesmerizing and chemistry that could fuel fireworks. Not wanting to have a deadline hanging over them be the make or break decision for these two and their relationship, they figure out an alternate path to follow to give themselves time to understand each other and grow the love between them. Ms. London wrote a wonderful, steamy, suspenseful and emotional story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters giving Annie and Joe a second chance at having a true love. I highly recommend The Aussie Next Door to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
