Title: Naughty Neighbor (Falling for the Stars Series Book #1)
Author: Jeannine Colette & Lauren Runow
Genre: Contemporary Romance
As a romance novelist, I’m facing my worst nightmare—writer’s block.
No matter what I write, I hit delete, knowing it’s not worth publishing. The future of my career rests on the success of this new book.
So, here I am, looking at Tumblr, desperate for inspiration, when I hear a thumping. Annoyed by the music blaring through the walls, I barge into the hall and bang on my neighbor’s door.
My very hot, very naughty neighbor, Jake Morreau.
Jake is romantic, charming, and the bane of my existence. I need to work, yet he refuses to let me.
When he greets me in the hallway, ideas of a sinfully hot hero come to mind.
When he takes me out on the town, the words flow as soon as I come home.
The more time I spend with this entertaining and quick-witted man, the more I’m able to write.
My neighbor is my muse, and before I know it, I slowly become the heroine of my own story, but I don’t know how to end it.
As I write the epilogue, I’m afraid our romance won’t pan out as I’ve written.
Jake Morreau is my hero.
Then again, in my life, heroes don’t exist.
Jake is such a sweetheart…

What does a man write to his romance author girlfriend on Valentine’s Day?
You have to admit, you make it pretty hard – pun intended 😉
Since I can’t win you over with my witty prose, I’ll make you swoon by what this man knows best.
Like women, each flower is unique in its beauty. You, Lacey, are the rarest and most unique blend I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing.
You’re like a Calla-Lilly, free spirited; bold and exciting. As strong as a rose, always with your guard up, using thorns to protect your heart from being broken. As fragile as an orchid, you will shut down when you’re hurt.
You have the romantic persona of a peony, often bashful in our most intimate moments. And the charm of a daisy when you’re with your friends and readers, brightening up their day. As passionate as a tulip, rising high to the challenge of loving me.
But most of all, you, my love, are a wildflower. Uniquely you, beyond what the world says you’re supposed to be and do. That is the sexiest thing about you.
See, I can’t compare you to one flower because you are the rarest bouquet the world has ever seen.
And, I’ll be here to tend to your garden – see, there’s another pun 😉 for as long as you will have me.
With all my love,
P.S. I’ll be waiting for you in our bedroom…in nothing but a seafoam green towel.
