Publisher's Summary

Courtney Banks owns a failing book store, and her relationship with her girlfriend Mia is falling apart. Courtney doesn't even think she believes in love...that is, until she meets the vampire next door.

Valeria "Lare" Máille is a gorgeous scientist working on cutting-edge genetics. She also just happens to be a vampire, and Courtney's new neighbor. Sparks fly from the very first moment Courtney and Lare meet, and their attraction is undeniable. But in a world where vampires have just "come out" of hiding, tensions between humans and vampires are running high. When Lare's co-workers begin to go missing, it looks like foul play may put Lare in danger, too.

Will Courtney and Lare have a chance at love, or is the cost of falling for a vampire too high?

The Vampire Next Door is a light-hearted paranormal romance that will take you on a journey you'll never forget.

Written by wife-and-wife authors Natalie Vivien (known for her laugh-out-loud contemporary romances) and Bridget Essex (known for her vampires and werewolves in love), The Vampire Next Door is a marriage of humor, steamy romance, and a love story that's out of this world.

Cute romantic fairy tale, if a tad simplistic

Good: Believable protagonist with a love interest that anyone who's been in the initial throes of falling in live will appreciate; bonus points for the lesbian romance being different from the eleventy-bajillion cookie cutter "hot guy supernatural" romances.

Bad: Takes a while for the actual plot to get going, and once it does the story is somewhat one dimensional and way too short. it's as though most of the creative energy was expended on the character introductions and world building and once that was done the actual plot got rushed to meet a deadline.

Ugly: The whole thing is told in present-tense. I'd normally avoid such a writing sin like the plague, but the grating nature of the narrative eventually fades into the background to be a minor annoyance.

Overall good, but not great. Don't go into this expecting Half Moon Hollow or Parasol Protectorate.

Maria Marquis! Vampire Romance! Yes Please!!!

5/5 stars This is one of the best Natalie Vivian/Bridget Essax novels and the narration by Maria Marquis omg her performance of Valeria is so good so sensual that it will melt you in all the right places. This audiobook is on par with Bridget Essex "Meeting Eternity Sullivan Vampires Volume 1 books 1-3" which is narrated by Lynn Devereux another Mistress of Sensuality.

Love it

The story is adorable~

Maria Marquis narration is wonderful.

My only complain is audio corruption in chapter 2 and 3.
