BAD NEIGHBOR – A Molly O’Keefe Review



Welcome to Shady Oaks; where people come to disappear. Except when your next door neighbor is a disturbingly scary-hot and seems to be intent on tempting you into the dark side…it gets a lot harder to be invisible.

Charlotte needed to disappear after her sister’s crazy antics go a bit beyond the party girl norm. Next door is one Jesse Herrera; a mouth watering brute that can’t seem to keep his eyes or hands off good girl Charlotte.

O’Keefe hooked me with one push of a futon and sunk me before the end of chapter 2.

If I thought Max and Joan from Burn Down the Night were GODS is Jesse at the top of the Scollville scale. Jaw dropingly honest and commanding to Charlotte’s slowly blossoming secret side; Jesse defines a whole new era of bad boy.

Different from the last book I read from O’Keefe, the relationship between Charlotte and Jesse seems, oddly, healthier. They build each other up in a roundabout way. Occasionally they outright tell the other they deserve more or deserve better but neither believe it is themselves. I loved getting to see Jesse’s point of view and how he seemed so much more sensitive to Charlotte than he acted.

I devoured this book in one day and cannot WAIT for more! Check out the synopsis below and order you copy now! Trust me…you won’t regret it!


XOXO Nalla

 I gave up everything to save my sister from a monster, and now I’m lying low in this rundown apartment so I can stay out of danger. Hiding from everyone.

Except for the guy in apartment 1A.

He’s rude. Silent. Muscled, mysterious, and hot as hell. I don’t know if he likes me or hates me, but the more time I spend with him, the less it matters.

I want him.

And for the first time in my life I’m going to go after what I want.

She doesn’t belong in my world.

From the second 1B moves in, I know she’s keeping secrets. She doesn’t belong here, much less with a street fighter like me.

But that doesn’t stop me from craving her. Her softness and sweetness. She’s a drug, and suddenly I’m addicted.

I know someone is going to try and hurt her and I can’t let that happen. But unless I push her away and get her out of my world, that someone could be me…




 Molly O’Keefe has always known she wanted to be a writer (except when she wanted to be a florist or a chef and the brief period of time when she considered being a cowgirl). And once she got her hands on some romances, she knew exactly what she wanted to write.

She published her first Harlequin romance at age 25 and hasn’t looked back. She loves exploring every character’s road towards happily ever after.

Originally from a small town outside of Chicago, she went to university in St. Louis where she met and fell in love with the editor of her school newspaper. They followed each other around the world for several years and finally got married and settled down in Toronto, Ontario. They welcomed their son into their family in 2006, and their daughter in 2008. When she’s not at the park or cleaning up the toy room, Molly is working hard on her next novel, trying to exercise, stalking Tina Fey on the internet and dreaming of the day she can finish a cup of coffee without interruption.

Dishing It Out, her last Harlequin Flipside won the Romantic Times Reviewers Choice award for best Flipside in 2005.

Her Superromance Baby Makes Three won the RT Reviewer’s Choice for best Superromance in 2006.  L-length Her novella, “The Christmas Eve Promise” in The Night Before Christmas won the RITA in 2009. And her full length contemporary romance CRAZY THING CALLED LOVE won the RITA in 2013.
