"The Boy Next Door" - Young Love Hits the Rocks in a Novel Set in Romantic Jamaica
About the Book
Boy meets girl. WHAM! Boy is instantly smitten. Girl turns down boy. Boy doesn’t take no for an answer. The chase begins.
A romance for young adult readers, The Boy Next Door takes place in Kingston, Jamaica.
This intriguing tale of young love introduces 18-year-old Ryan Reece, an American expatriate, and 17-year-old Noelle Goodison, the pretty native whose world he crash lands into. When her best friend migrates to New York, Noelle finds it difficult to cope until she meets the handsome stranger. Ryan feels a magnetic attraction to Noelle right from the start, but hot-tempered Noelle sees him as an annoying nuisance.
When Ryan makes his intention clear and begins to pursue her, headstrong Noelle plays hard to get, and when her defiance begins to bubble over, Ryan begins to wonder if he’s fighting a losing battle. Will Noelle ever surrender to his charms?
