Publisher's Summary

What do you do with an irresistible neighbor you didn't account for in your life? Caleb had big dreams of opening a bakery when he was young, but they were shattered when tragedy struck, making him the man of the house. His mom and younger brother depend on him to be strong and support them, even if it meant sacrificing himself. He was resigned to being a cog in the wheel in a job he hated, until his new neighbor moves in and challenges everything. Zack didn't do relationships. After his family cut ties with him, he vowed to stick to friendships in the future. However, when his blushing neighbor overhears him mention erectile dysfunction and balls, he can't let the cute man leave thinking he has issues with his lower parts.

The New Neighbor is book one of the Corio Heights series about well, the new neighbor. Join Caleb and Zack's story as they discover that they can have more than what they resigned themselves to. It features a regal cat, hurt/comfort themes, and lots of blushing.

Sweet insecure friends to lovers

This is a new to me author, and I believe a new author in mm.
There is a fun short prequel to this book where we are introduced to the MCs and their best friends. The prequel and this book can be read as a stand alone.

The main characters are Caleb, who became an accountant to support his family but really wants to be a baker baker and Zack, a restaurant consultant who loves to cook and just wants to belong.
Both men are insecure about relationships, long term relationships did not work out in the past for either of them. That is why they start a friendship and develop a strong relationship over shared diners and desserts and a love for a diva cat and shared runs and game nights with their friends.
This book is a nice easy to read novel with a clear writing style that keeps going at a nice pace till the HFN/HEA. Each chapter is written from the POV by either Caleb or Zack who are the main characters. Only the epilogue is written from the POV of Ian, Caleb his best friend. It seems this is done to conclude this book and set up the second book in this series in which he will be a MC.
I would recommend this book this book if you like mm, with medium to low heat. 4*

For the audiobook: I can recommend the audiobook Zachary Zaba does a great job of bringing the characters even more to live through his narration. 5* overall: 4,5

Possible trigger: mentioning in the book neglect by parents.
