Publisher's Summary

I ran into Derek while trying to escape the neighbor from hell.

Instantly, we hit it off. Since he’s only here for three months and the microbrewery leaves me little time for commitments, it’s the perfect setup for a fling.

He’s adventurous, challenges me, and he just gets me from the inside out.

With our expiration date quickly approaching, I’m left to wonder...will my heart ever be the same without the boy upstairs?

The Boy Upstairs

Derek is in town for three months for a job. He has every intention of enjoying the sweet little resort town of Bear Creek, Colorado while he is there. When a noisy neighbor has him leaving his apartment early in the morning,, he runs into another neighbor, Tessa, also running from the X-rated symphony coming their mutual neighbor's apartment. They immediately hit it off. Tessa offers to show him around and soon they are surrendering to a mutual attraction. But Derek's time in town is limited and Tessa's roots in Bear Creek are too deep. Will Tessa be able to go on with her happy life without the boy upstairs?

I got this book in a giveaway. Since it was narrated by one of my favorite narrators, Connor Crais, I decided to give this new (to me) author a try. What a delightful surprise. The Boy Upstairs is a sweet but very steamy story of people finding THE ONE, even when they are not looking for them.

I particularly loved how low angst this story is and how the story develops. I am certainly checking more of Amanda Shelley and also the All American Boy series.

The book is a standalone, but the series has 16 books in a shared universe. Scenes and characters may crossover.

Narration: Connor Crais never disappoints and Vanessa Edwin is a wonderful Tessa.

Fantastic!

Amanda Shelley is a new to me author and Connor Crais was a new to me narrator. I've listened to Vanessa Edwin before and she's one of my favorites. I thought the story was good, well written, and engaging. I immediately felt connected to the characters and loved the humor of the book. I will definitely be checking out more of her books including the other books in this series.
The narration was fantastic and really brought the characters to life. This book was done in dual narration style and Connor and Vanessa did a wonderful job!

Enjoyable listen

I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet love story. Two independent people meet & agree to a fling while trying so hard to NOT fall in love. Low angst, no triggers & narration was excellent. I'll definitely listen to this author again.

Loved it!

I enjoyed the story and the characters. Connor Crais is an awesome narrator! It's a short story but not at all short on bedroom heat! Would love to read more by Amanda Shelley.

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Complete story in a novella length

I liked this this novella felt like a complete story and that the events in the book were spread out over a few months. Short stories can be hit or miss for me, but I liked this one and would rate it 4.5 stars compared to other novellas. It was my first book by Amanda Shelly, and I'm interested in reading more of her work.


Connor Crais and Vanessa Edwin did a fabulous job with the narration, and I'm sure that I liked the story more because I listened to the audiobook.
