How to Love Your Neighbor by Sophie Sullivan

I’m a fan of fixer-upper type shows and enemies-to-lovers romance novels so when I came across the blurb for this book, I thought it would be right up my alley. It ended up being good but I wasn’t totally in love with it. There were parts I liked – their meet-cute was fun and there were a handful of secondary characters who I enjoyed – and there were parts that just didn’t do it for me. The dialogue felt a little forced to me and a lot of the “issues” meant to form the conflict in this novel didn’t feel fully developed – it’s almost as if there were too many things going on, some of them were just dropped and some of them just felt superficial. I also thought the enemies portion of Grace and Noah’s “relationship” was too short-lived. They did have some good back and forth early on but it was resolved so easily and relatively early on in the book. I would have preferred if the enemy storyline was the main conflict and some of the other things could have just been excluded. The thing I enjoyed most was actually some of the side characters – Morty was amusing and I liked Rosie and Josh. I think a lot of people will really enjoy this book and just skimming through some existing reviews, it appears that many already have. In the end, I liked it well enough and it was a pretty quick and easy read. Also, the cover is super cute!
