"A wild crazy ride that won't be forgotten!"

Tax time is the busiest time of the year for an accountant and Victoria Slater is no different. As deadlines loom, her world is turned upside down by pranks that make her the laughing stock of the neighborhood. She's certain her nemesis Christian Taylor is behind them, and does her level best to get even with him. For the first time in her life, her crush notices her, but she can't stop thinking about the man who lives next door.

Christian has loved Victoria since high school. He had never worked up the nerve to ask out the beautiful woman. When things start going awry at Victoria's, he's determined to help her get to the bottom of things. Soon he finds himself cuffed at the ankles to the woman he desires more than life itself to prove to her once and for all that he didn't pull any pranks on her.

Victoria is my kind of girl; she doesn't get mad she gets even. What I liked most about her is that she's prompted by her internal fears and often irrational trains of thought. She can stand on her own two feet, drive like a demon, and still jump in fear of a tiny pink mouse. Jennifer Loy didn't just create a character in this book; she created every woman rolled into one.

From start to finish the pace of this book is rapid. Every page brings a new level of intensity to the desire between Christian and Victoria. The heat sizzles from the first kiss to the last all within perfect comedic timing that had me laughing out loud on many occasions. Ms. Loy has an incredible sense for when to add that next humorous moment. If you are looking for a fast fun read, There Goes The Neighborhood by Jennifer Loy will leave you breathless, either from the heat between the pages, or the sheer amount of laughing you'll do.

Victoria Slater is struggling through a busy tax time with April fifteenth just around the corner. Working out of her home doesn’t help when someone begins to play practical jokes on her. From mice in her kitchen to embarrassing singing telegrams. She doesn’t have time for the messes the culprit is causing and certainly not the two male neighbors, Christian Taylor or Kirk Jacobson; she’s dealt with for half her life.

Victoria decides to retaliate against Christian. He’s the only one who could be causing the trouble, her enemy since the eighth grade. It couldn’t be Kirk, her all time crush. After visiting a fortune teller she finds out that two men are pursuing her and one is misleading her.

With multiple misunderstandings, a year book note she never found, a sudden change of address, and a tenth year reunion, Victoria learns the true meaning of There Goes The Neighborhood.
