The Boys Next Door

The Boys Next Door is a cute story with adorable teenage characters who brought me back thoughts of the first boy I fell in love with, and all the incredibly embarrassing things I said and did to get him to fall in love with me. This is a light, funny read that will warm your heart. Lori has ...
