The Boy Next Door by Stevie J. Cole

Sorority Secrets: The virgins of Beta Kappa Nu would do anything for each other. Even auction off their most valuable asset…

I’ve been in love with Emma since we were thirteen years old.

That part is real. But nothing else they say about me is true.

The way she looks at me from across the room, how she makes my old T-shirts look good, how perfect she feels when she’s in my arms. That’s what I want to picture when I think about Emma. Not a crazy auction where she gives it up to some random creep.

I can’t let it happen. I won’t let it happen.

Despite the tattoos, despite the rumors, despite my reputation as a class-A player—there’s never been anyone else. In my bed or in my heart.

It’s always been Emma.

For those times when size does matter. The Dirty Bits from Carina Press: quick and dirty, just the way we like it.

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

Here we are with another sorority girl and her auction story. But what she doesn't realize is what is being auctioned off.

Emma and Evan have been best friends for as long as she can remember. And she has been in love with him for almost as long. But she doesn't want to tell him how she feels because she doesn't want to lose her best friend.

Evan has loved Emma since he has known her, but he can't tell her for fear of losing her for good. So, he will protect her and be her best friend.

Can Evan stand aside when he finds out about the auction? Will Emma go through with the auction when she realizes what is really at stake? Will Evan and Emma finally tell each other how they really feel?

I have read a few others in this series and I have liked the all, but I loved the relationship between Evan and Emma best. If you are looking for a quick read and a happily ever after in the end, then you cannot go wrong with the Sorority Secrets series.

This is more about the boy next door, Evan, who has always loved his neighbor, Emma.

Emma's character just didn't seem the type to auction off her virginity. But when her sorority sisters call, she can't help but help the cause. She has always been in love with Evan, but as the years go on and she sees how many women he parades around, she knows that he's a manwhore.

Evan can't help but follow Emma and keep her in his sight. When he realizes that she's auctioning off her virginity, something inside him breaks. Despite the fact that he is carrying around his own secrets, he can't let the guy who he knows will bid on Emma win.

This is more of a young adult feel and even though they do finally seal their fantasy of coming together, it doesn't read as a virginal experience. Overall, this was a cute read, but felt way to young adult.

Emma has been in love with Evan for as long as she can remember, but Evan is her best friend and she's not willing to lose him. When Evan finds out Emma is participating in the sorority auction of her virginity, he's furious. He won't let that happen, regardless what he has to do. Evan has the reputation as a playboy, but he's been holding on to something that no one knows about. How can Evan convince Emma he's in love with her and has wanted her for years? Can Emma actually go through with the auction?

The Boy Next Door was my favorite out of this series. I loved Emma and Evan and the chemistry between them. It's another quick, erotic read. I would love to see these characters in an expanded novel. Stevie J Cole is a new to me author that I will be checking out.

Stevie J. Cole lives deep in the woods of Alabama with her sexy husband and two precious daughters. She has an obsession with penguins and English chocolate and is terrified of clowns.

Her solo books offer you all the feels you’ve come to love in a steamy romance with happily ever afters, while her co-authored books with LP Lovell take you on a thrilling ride of suspense and danger with a nice little punch of love.
