Flirting with my hot neighbor is like playing with fire...

Tate is not the sort of neighbor you can ignore. Especially when he walks around half naked for all the world to see. I can't help that I got a weak spot for bad boys. But that was before I became a single mom, and I’m not so weak anymore.

Besides, Tate lights my temper without even trying, and I swear he enjoys teasing me. Well, two can play at that game, and I think it’s time someone teaches him a lesson.

My friends tell me that I’m playing with fire, that I don’t know how dangerous Tate truly is. But I’m not scared of a little heat between neighbors.

But there’s something different about Tate that I can’t put my finger on, and I’m determined to find out what it is. Even if it means getting burned...


Next Door Dragon Daddy is book one in the Secret Shifters Next Door series by Roxie Ray.

It was an ok read. Predictable.

I liked Harley and her girls. The youngest was not shy in any respect. She was adorable. The oldest was more mature and had a good head on her. Harley is a good mom, protective of her children, and even with everything happen in her life, she continues on.

Tate is shocked to see his one night stand move in and as the story goes more shocked to learn she’s pregnant with his kid. He’s protective and after being a dick works to win over Harley and show her he can be a good guy, family man, and will not hurt her.

It was fun to watch Tate change from a loner single man into a family man and find what he’s been looking for. The mystery of the hunters going after shifters is not much of a mystery. The added ex-boyfriend causing problems for Harley was, eh. The story is so so. It’s been done. Tate and Harley do get they’re happy ever after, but we do have a bit of a cliffhanger regarding that hunter threat and curse on the shifters of Lily Valley.

Next Door Dragon Daddy has a very cool cover. Eye appealing, but the story is predictable. Not sure I’ll continue on.

Rated: 3 Stars

  1. Glad he redeemed himself a bit. I don’t mind a so-so start to a series if someone about it draws me in. Seems like this one didn’t quite do that for you. Oh well!

    • Nope this one didn’t pull me into the series and I won’t be reading on. It had some enjoyable moments, but it was predictable. Thanks for visiting!

  2. Sorry this was a bit of a disappointment. It does sound like a good premise.

    • The book cover and the little excerpt I read on the Next Door Dragon Daddy had me giving this book a try, but it was predictable and just eh. Thanks for visiting.
