I was just a girl, a young neglected girl with issues. I was a mess. A mess he wanted nothing to do with. He knew better. But I certainly didn’t. All I knew was that I liked what I saw.
I grew up in small town Michigan, raised by a single alcoholic father and two older brothers who never gave me the time of day. All I had were my best friends, Izzie and Gavin, a reclusive broken man, ten years my senior. My father forbade me to see him, but I didn’t listen. I was crazy about him and he adored me. Even when our small community was rocked by a heinous crime and Gavin was the main suspect, I still loved him.
When tragedy struck, I finally escaped. As far away as I could.
I’ve been in Chicago ever since, trying to forget all about my past. Yet, I find myself still thinking about my past, about Gavin and Izzie, about my other life. I’m not truly living anymore, just going through the motions. Until…
Noah Reed. My new neighbor. Beautiful, sweet and intoxicating. There’s something about him I just can’t put my finger on. He’s the first man since Gavin I truly let myself fall for. I think he might be the one. Until…
… the day I discover his secret.

UNITED INDIE BOOK BLOG REVIEW
RATING: 5 STARS
Intriguing! I've volunteered to review this book for United Indie Book Blog. This is my first time reading one of Roya Carmen books. The Man Next Door is the second book in Orchard Heights series. This is Abigail and Noah's story. Abigail is caring, compassionate, and haunted by the past. Noah is sexy, hot, and very mysterious. This story is intriguing, suspenseful, and mysterious. It goes back and forth to the past and present. I like it cause it gave me a background of them. This is one that you NEED to read. You won't be disappointed. I couldn't stop reading once i got started. Can't wait to see what else you will bring to us. Keep up the good job!
