While The Stud Next Door is the third book in the Frisky Business series, it most definitely can stand alone. There was something so endearing and intriguing about this book and these characters!
Single Dad, Connor, is getting toward the end of his paternity leave and he's in need of a nanny so he can go back to work at Frisky Business, which he co-owns with three of his buddies. Little Marley is the light of his life and he wants to make sure the right person is taking care of her, but finding that person hasn't been easy. Could it be as easy as the girl who is moving in next door?
Jessa has moved into a short-term rental in the home of an elderly couple for the summer before she departs for mission work in South America. She's been looking forward to the trip for months and she feels like this change in scenery will do her good. When she meets Connor and Marley, she's immediately taken with the little girl and let's be honest, her Dad isn't bad either!
As Jessa becomes Marley's nanny on a short-term basis, she and Connor spend more and more time together, both trying to fight the feelings and chemistry building between them. With her leaving, does it make sense to even start something?
I was enthralled in this story from the get-go. Connor was such a great Dad and the way he balanced having a child with his work was great. I also really liked Jessa. She knew what she wanted in life and went after it. They were so good together and add in all their friends and you have the makings of a really entertaining story! I'm looking forward to whatever comes next for this crew!
