Publisher's Summary

Dear grouchy neighbor: I’m considering your offer and need clarification before proceeding. Despite being an artist, I think you know that as a busy New Yorker, I am also practical and straightforward.

That said, I need to make sure you know that this could never turn into anything serious. I don’t care if you’re trying to get over your ex-girlfriend or hoping she’ll eventually want to get back together with you - just don’t project your messy feelings about her onto me.

Because, despite your resemblance to an underwear model, I won’t be falling for you. Ever.

Yours, with clear boundaries,

Bernadette

PS. I’d like to be very clear that regardless of whether or not we do this, nothing will change my feelings for your dog (and we both know she loves me too).

Dear nutty neighbor: As a lawyer, I must clarify that I never made an offer. It was a suggestion regarding the possibility of a non-permanent, no-strings-attached arrangement between two consenting adults whose beds are separated by a wall.

As a man who shares your disdain for messy feelings, I applaud your confidence in your ability to not fall for me. Hold on to that. I’d also like to make it clear that I don’t care if you want to get over your crush on your boss or if you still hope he’ll realize you’re the woman of his dreams. That said, I definitely wasn’t thinking about my ex-girlfriend when I kissed you in the laundry room, and I’m quite sure you weren’t thinking about your boss.

As a dog daddy, I'm glad you're so taken with my girl. But if you try to steal her I will get all Liam Neeson up in your pretty face.

As a busy New Yorker, I think clear boundaries are hot. I have one hour free to blow your mind tonight. So turn off Netflix, put down that glass of wine, and let’s do this.

Yours for now, 

Matt

2 Words...SWOON WORTHY!

The slow burn between Bernie and Matt is to die for...!!!! I found myself screaming in my head "JUST KISS ALREADY!" Kayley is a master at writing and developing her characters in a way that has you rooting for them the instant you start reading. You will not regret taking the time to listen to this book, the story is sweet and funny! Also lets be real, who doesn't love listening to Teddy Hamilton's voice in yet another sexy male role?!

Great story told by fantastic narrators

This was a fun and adorable story. When Bernadette and Matt first meet, they are completely differently types of people, which was off putting to each of them. Bernadette is the artsy type, Matt is the corporate lawyer. Bernadette shares her feelings, Matt is a stoic person. But they share an intense love for Matt’s dog (I love dog people) and they find themselves falling first into lust and then into love. I didn’t get why Bernadette was so against relationships and was so scared of getting hurt. Matt just got out of a relationship and was still initially a bit hung up on his ex but that didn't stop him from being attracted to Bernadette both physically and mentally. Besides a few issues that crop up towards the end, they generally have a low angst relationship.

The narration was fantastic! I especially loved Teddy Hamilton, who I think has the perfect voice for Matt and provided a good depth of emotion when warranted. Mackenzie Cartwright was also a great narrator and together, they did a pretty flawless job of representing the hero, heroine and even the supporting cast. They did a great job of switching characters when needed.

I have both the book and the audiobook and i definitely felt like the audiobook added an additional depth to the book itself.

I received this audiobook from Audiobook Obsession for an honest review.

Stellar RomCom

I went through most of this book with the biggest, dopiest smile on my face. It’s just every single thing you could want from a romcom. A meet cute, opposites attract, a quirky cast of side characters, scorching chemistry that plays well between the sheets, main characters you want to be/be with and most importantly a great dog.

The narrators are both amazing. You are able to get completely lost in the story.

Absolutely sublime!

Fabulous Story & Listen🎧 Delightful & Enjoyable!

This is an enjoyable and entertaining story. It is well written, well told with great storylines that are original and interesting. Once I started the book I did not want to put it down and I had a smile on my face the entire time. I adored the characters, Bernadette and her quirkiness, her straight forwardness was refreshing. I was happy that Matt was not the angsty, arrogant arse, which was my first impression of him. Coming from a breakup does not bring the out the best of anyone. Sure, compared to Bernadette it seemed like he had a stick up, well you know where. But Bernadette gets that stick out and brings out the best of him. I loved those two together, they were so different yet they complimented each other so well. The dialogue and banter between them was great, smart and witty. The texts & emails between them were just hilarious. Dolly’s messages were hilarious too. I highly recommend this book, it will put a smile on your face, Bernadette and Matt’s story is a fun one, there is drama, a little bit of angst, a whole lot of laughs and lovely build-up to a great romance. I was rooting for these two, I was happy to see them get past their issues and recognize love and what they had. Secondary characters in this book are great too. Kayley Loring, thank you for this great story and the pleasant, emotional rollercoaster ride.

I listened to the Audible edition, Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton are wonderful narrators and voice performers. They bring the characters to life, give each their own voice and personality. You can hear the emotions of the characters projected in their performances. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

Sigh. Come Back to Bed was both sweet and sexy. It was funny and sassy. Kayley Loring wrote a great story of opposite neighbors who deliberately push each other's buttons. The smart banter was refreshing. Bernadette was able to go toe-to-toe with Matt in witty verbal sparring. I also liked how some roles were reversed while others were in place. Overall Come Back to Bed was a great read and made me wast to check out more of Kayley Loring's books. Also, Teddy Hamilton's voice is amazing.

I received this book for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.

So sweet!!

This book was a sweet easy read. I laughed really hard at times, and swooned just as hard other times. Yes in the beginning Matt has it bad for someone else, and Bernadette is crushing elsewhere, but these two fit. Also I love when dogs are in a book!! The narration was great, and Teddy Hamilton is life!!!! #audiobookobsession

So funny

Loved it . Quirky Bernadette meets uptight Matt was a book leaving you in stitches. From the beginning to the end I found myself smiling or laughing. Laughing out loud as I was driving to work. The story was written and told great. The narration was perfect. Very fun book one I recommend for a good laugh .

Come back to bed , oh yeah!

Come back to bed is a wonderful life story. Bernadette and Matthew weren’t looking for love, but it found them. Storyline had a great flow and kept me interested from start to finish. Narration was on point. McKenzie and Teddy... swoon worthy. Kayley Loring did a bang up job!

Matt and Bernadette match made in New York or more like Vermont on a farm.

I fell in love with this amazing story from the beginning. I choose the story due to the narrator Teddy Hamilton but glad I did Kayley Loring is Amazing. It took Matt a while to start fighting for the love of his life after a major break up. Mackenzie Cartwrite did an awesome for with her acting of Bernadette.

Wonderfully witty and romantic!

How have I not heard of Kayley Loring before? I am so glad I was recommended this book. It's one that you can listen to, fall in love with both main characters, and just enjoy. Matt is staying at his aunt's apartment across the hall from Bernadette. And that is all that it starts from. A slow burn romance, a lot of witty banter and a love for Matt's dog(who wouldn't love that pup!) will make you listen til the very end. Loring has us rooting for Matt and Bernie even before they get together! From crazy dinners with the neighbors to meeting the parents, to pure romance this book has it all. I love that it's low angst, smart characters, laugh out loud scenes and total entertainment. A great listen!

Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright are amazing! This team has great comedic timing, and their voices compliment each other. It's perfectly cast for the characters, as I enjoy their conversational style, easy narration. Loved this combination and hope for more.

A perfect beach read

Kayley Loring, a completely new to me author and I’ve got to say, I loved her writing, the story, and the narration - basically, the whole package. Yes it might have been a little predictable, but it’s one of those books that you read the synopsis, know the story, and still go ahead and read. You don’t like sweet, predictable and romantic, don’t read this. Sometimes though, all a girl wants is a sweet romantic angst free, love story. If that’s the case, this is the book for you. I was lost in everything Matt and Bernadette for a couple of days, and I loved it. Enemies to lovers, friends with benefits, no attachments, opposites attract etc etc. You know what I’m talking about. Great characters A perfect beach read rom com. I listened to the audio version, I loved it, stick to the pool though, that way you won’t get sand in your earplugs and it’ll drown out all those screaming children - ha ha.

Totally smitten!!

Well, wasn’t this just adorable! I know nothing about this author but I enjoyed Come Back to Bed so much that I’m thinking of looking into her other books, if she has some. I’m not really sure what I was expecting but I wasn’t expecting the laugh-out-loud humor with some really fun, relatable characters. Matt is definitely aloof and a bit cold to Bernadette. But he reminds her that she is extremely talented and her art shouldn’t be put to the side. I really enjoyed the aspect of living your dreams.

The narrators, Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton are amazing together! Teddy Hamilton has such a great voice for Matt. It was perfectly aloof in the beginning and he slowly relaxed a bit and I loved listening to him and Mackenzie Cartwright brings the banter to life. They really brought these characters to life with the fun and impactful voices.

Enjoyed Listening

I absolutely loved this story. It was a hilarious, charming, refreshing story that had me hooked from beginning to end. The characters were both flawed but complimented each other perfectly. From their first encounter to the very end I loved seeing how their relationship evolved from strangers to neighbours with benefits and then to so much more. The secondary characters were also amazing. They provided balance and support and additional hilarity and added so much to the story.
The novel was well-written and perfectly paced. This was Romantic Comedy at its finest and I enjoyed every second of it.

Come back to Bed was narrated by Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton. These two did an excellent job with the characters. I especially loved Teddy's portrayal of Matt but they both were incredible and really brought the story to life. Their delivery was spot on and it was a pleasure listening to them both.

Come Back to Bed was an enjoyable story definitely worthy of a five star status. I loved it and would highly recommend it to all RomCom lovers.

such a sweet story

oh I loved this so much , after listening to a few more intense romances this is just what i needed to inject some light heartedness into my day , Bernadette loves dogs ! so when she meets the cutest french bulldog she is smitten , she doesnt realise that gorgeous pooch and her equally gorgeous owner will be staying next door to her for a while , even tho he acts all arrogant she knows he has a sweet side, shes heard it in the way he talks to his dog , and she will find a way to bring that out of him

the narration for this audiobook was absolutely spot on! they had me laughing along with the characters and feeling a whole range of emotions throughout

an absolute must listen

Awesome!

This book was awesome! It has everything: wit, conflict, love story…steam. It was a great romantic comedy that is pleasantly broken up with text messages and emails that add to the hilarity of the dialogue and indicate how that is not always the best form of communication when starting a relationship.

I loved the narration, too. I have not read many books yet with two narrators and both did a wonderful job. They each did a great job keeping the other character’s tone that was created by the other narrator (i.e. when Ms. Cartwright has to speak for Matt based on how Mr. Hamilton had voiced him.) It appeared seamless to me and expertly done.

I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great read. Even if you’re not into the steamy scenes, the rest of the book is so well written and preformed it is worth it to check this one out.

I was provided with a free copy of this audio book for my honest review. The views expressed here are entirely my own.
