(ARC provided by author) Thirteen months ago Connor Blake was a blissfully single bachelor living in the city without a care in the world. Now he's moved to the suburbs and is a dad to a precious baby girl. Overnight he grew up and changed his priorities. His daughter has given him purpose, and fatherhood has really opened his eyes to everything he was missing. Even though he's responsible and a changed man, he isn't too proud to admit when he could use some help. He's often exhausted, stressed, and a bit overwhelmed trying to do things on his own. Tired of struggling and needing to get back to work, he decides he needs a nanny. When a new neighbor named Jessa moves in next door and offers him some help, she's just what he needed. She's also gorgeous, and much too tempting. They share a genuine connection, but he can't pursue her. He's emotionally unavailable and can't afford any distractions right now, but he's still tormented by inappropriate thoughts of her every time she's near. When they catch feelings and their chemistry becomes too hard to deny will they keep things professional or give in to their undeniable attraction? The Stud Next Door (Frisky Business #3) by Kendall Ryan is a standalone single dad romance with all the feels. It's super cute, sexy, and a bit forbidden. I really love this series and enjoyed this story! Connor is a dreamy hot dad who breaks all his own rules! :)) ***NOW AVAILABLE*** https://amzn.to/3pbzjZq

This is the third book in the Frisky Business series and I've been waiting for it. I needed to know Connor's story once he becomes a dad to Marley, his little girl. This can be read as a standalone, but I think reading the other books helps you become more in touch with the whole group of friends. "Or maybe this is my best shot at something real." Connor used to be a carefree bachelor, but life brought him little Marley. His priorities have totally shifted and Marley is the center of his universe now. When it's time for him to go back to work, he needs someone to care for the baby... and then fate just puts Jessa in his way. Jessa is renting his neighbors' apartment, scheduled to travel in a few months, and the baby whisperer that comes into Connor's life as the nanny. But sparks fly between them and Connor struggles to keep it professional, while Jessa is fighting not to let Connor turn her whole world upside down. "'I’m glad we’re us now.'" It was heartwarming to see their relationship progress. I loved seeing how it built up and how comfortable they are around each other. This is such a sweet story, without any angst. From Connor's interactions with his little girl, to Connor's feelings about Jessa... it will make you swoon a little. And let me just say their first date was kind of unforgettable, in so many ways! It was so easy how everything just sort of fell into place for these two that yes, I think some things are just fate, indeed.

    Syndi

    Yup! Sadly I can not finish this book. The Stud Next Door has no plot. The story revolving around insta lust with short length. Not much room for drama/ twisted plot. I do like romance book with a heavy dose of combination of sexual attraction and character development. Miss Ryan sadly misses the spot. I am not surprise since I picked up this book in hurry. Now I regretting putting this book on my list. I should be more cautious to pick NA romance. 2 stars

The only problem is that she's leaving in two months for a mission trip in Central America. I absolutely loved Connor and Jessa. They clicked immediately and had a real connection. But despite the strong pull and smoldering chemistry, the two tried to keep things as professional as possible. They had Marley's best interests at heart. But eventually these intense feelings became too much to ignore. They really were the perfect match, and I enjoyed taking this journey with them. All in all, this was a sweet, sexy and charming read. The romance heats you up on the inside and out. I truly can't say enough good things. I was completely enamored, carried away by Connor and Jessa's love. This is definitely a story that you won't want to miss. Five stars for Connor, Jessa and The Stud Next Door!

    Book 3 in the Frisky Business series and it was Connor’s story. Loved this single dad romance. Connor and Jessa were a great couple. Their romance was so much fun to watch develop. He was reluctant to start anything with her because he was her boss and she was leaving to go out of the country for a job. However, the chemistry between them was too intense to deny. Once they got together, it was explosive. Loved them together and can’t wait to read what is next in this series.

Jesse was wonderful, smart, and caring, and could hold her own with his friends. Connor totally made me swoon as I saw that his playboy ways quickly shifted to being all in with his fatherly duties and doing what was best for his daughter, as he struggled at times knowing what to do for her. I loved how he was so appreciative of everything Jesse did to help his daughter and how protective he was with her. Jessa wasn’t a conquest. She was someone that made him want to be better. But what can become of them when she is leaving for a year? You definitely will want to read to find out. The Stud Next Door was a real pleasure to read. I loved it from start to finish, and even though I didn’t want it to end, the ending brought tears to my eyes. The happiest of tears. Received a copy for an honest review.

In her latest book, The Stud Next Door, we are treated to Connor’s story, the single dad whose life has changed dramatically in the wake of his daughter’s birth. A former playboy, Connor’s life has become hyper-focused on his daughter to the exclusion of hook-ups and relationships. When a new neighbor moves in next door, Connor’s head is turned from their first meeting. Jessa, Ryan’s heroine, is living on the short-term next door since she will be leaving on a mission work trip in six months. On meeting her neighbor, Connor, she comes to his rescue to help him with his fussy daughter. Once Connor realizes she is a “baby whisperer,” he asks Jessa if she would be willing to be his nanny since he must return to work, and she clearly has the skill to help him with his daughter. What he doesn’t talk about (or her for that matter) is his immediate attraction to her. As this story progresses, their chemistry becomes undeniable, and Connor struggles with wanting more from his nanny, while Jessa struggles with sticking to her plan to leave. Will these two find their happy ending? What is clear about Ryan’s storytelling is her capacity to develop out a story. She crafts steam and sweet like no other. It’s that element of her books, namely The Stud Next Door, that keeps you coming back for more. With this book, once again, she also brings in the men of Frisky Business, so you get updates on Hayes/Maren and Wolfie/Penelope from the first two books of the series AND you are introduced to more of the other characters, namely Caleb, whom I imagine is the next Frisky Business story. This acts as a cliffhanger with this book. Ryan has this ability to invest you in the stories of her characters, as she teases you with the characters from her earlier stories. Where I’d love to see Kendall Ryan grow, though, is in her character development. For me, Connor and Jessa read as flat characters because we don’t get enough of their background to feel invested in them. As their story progresses, we root for their happy ending, but, at least for me, I didn’t really care about them enough. Even more, this is probably the easiest story of the three thus far. What I mean by easy is that the inciting incident and climax don’t ever really reach a fever-pitch. Jessa and Connor find an easy resolution to their situation. With that lack of tension, the story is good, but it doesn’t invest you into the story. You think, “this is sweet” and that’s the extent of their story. Kendall Ryan knows romance. She can write the heck out of a trope. I worry, though, that her stories are becoming a bit predictable as she plots out her series. She has an immense capacity to write stories that her readers can’t wait for. However, I worry that a future might come where it feels a little predictable. In The Stud Next Door, you will like Connor and Jessa, and you will want them to find a future together. Does it bowl you over? Not entirely. For me, this is a precarious 4 star read.

He also can’t help being attracted to her but nothing can come of his feelings as Jessa is leaving in two months for a six months job. Like I said nothing stood out for me on this one. I love this author’s books and always enjoy her characters. Connor and Jessa was sweet and totally into each other. It was cute and sexy and the yep it had lots of hot steamy moments. But I felt like it missed something for me. I cant wait to read Caleb’s story though, looks like Scarlet will be giving him a run for his money 😊 ♥ Read on behalf of Fay’s Corner

Low on angst and melodrama, but rich with heartwarming exchanges and full of charm, readers will be quickly captivated by this book full of heart and soul. Connor's a delicious hero from the start, jumping in wholeheartedly to be the best single dad when fate drops a new baby on his doorstep. He might've once been a player but he's been too busy balancing fatherhood, with manufacturing sex toys at Frisky Business, to do much else lately. Into his chaotic world comes his sweet next door neighbor Jessa and though she starts off as his nanny she soon becomes something more important to him in this quick yet satisfying romance. Connor's interactions with baby Marley made my uterus hurt as they were too cute for words while showing him as a loving and caring soul. He and Jessa were combustible from the start and it led them from business to pleasure very quickly in scenes that gave readers more insight into Frisky Business. They were a delightful family in the making...if they were just willing to change what was meant to be temporary into something permanent. Jessa's a truly kindhearted heroine, someone that at first seems to be the opposite of Connor, before showing herself to be a perfect match throughout their "testing" sessions. Readers first meet her as she becomes Connor's temporary neighbor before leaving in six months to do humanitarian work overseas. It seems like the perfect opportunity for her to make money but it's not long before her heart becomes involved in a charming romance full of scorching interludes that brings the two of them closer together. From the first page to the last this was a carefree romance with a good flow and virtually no angst. The pace was fast with witty banter and both sweet and sexy encounters. I'm not normally a fan of children in romances but Marley was endearing and was like a bow that made the relationship between Jessa and Connor even more satisfying and complete. Alongside this likable main couple was the chance to get greater insight into the inner workings of Frisky Business. Before this installment readers just got brief glimpses or discussions about the work being done. Here though readers get to see the products being used and it made for crackling moments between Jessa and Connor that has me even more intrigued about the business and hoping to learn more about it in the next installment. On a whole this romance provided a satisfying start to the new year and I recommend this tale to those that enjoy charming romances and scorching scenes!

    Another brilliant light, rom-com from Kendall Ryan!! I've loved the Frisky Business series because the guys and girls are just so easy to love. They have huge hearts and so much space to love. Connor's story surprised me as he was made to the the playboy. However when an unexpected baby pops out and he becomes a dad his whole attitude in life changes. He's so freaking adorable as a dad! I love Marley too. When he needs a nanny so he can head back to work, things seemingly align when Jessa moves in Another brilliant light, rom-com from Kendall Ryan!!

I love Marley too. When he needs a nanny so he can head back to work, things seemingly align when Jessa moves in next door. Jessa is such an amazing human. She's going to work as a humanitarian for 6 months so having this short gig as a nanny is beneficial for her before she leaves. What she doesn't expect is to fall for the hot single dad and him with her. Depsite the impending leave they have fun and share so many lovely moments together even dating for a bit. Yet all good things must come to an end...or do they? This story is light, and the great escape you need from real life. The banter and jokes between all the friends were fun. Plus it can be read as a standalone but if you love series with revisiting characters this can be for you! An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review.

    I am enjoying this series. This book is the 3rd book within the Frisky Business series, however it can be read as a standalone. This book is Connor's story. Struggling to juggle parenthood and a business, Connor needs help. Hiring the hot new neighbour to be his daughters nanny could be a blessing or a nightmare. I loved Connor's relationship with his daughter and also with Jessa. It was easy going and very natural. If I'm honest, the pace of the book reflected my star rating.

The chemistry between the characters was amazing. I loved the build-up and following their relationship, however as soon as they had their first date, in my opinion, the pace went too fast and it was rather rushed. Now don't get me wrong, I still loved their relationship but things, such as Jessa's new job, resolved itself too easily. The first 50% of the book was entertaining, sweet, funny and the tension was perfect. The writing, as always was refreshing. I loved the descriptions and the environment Kendall created. Overall I did enjoy this series and I can't wait for the next book within this series.

    This book was a lot of Insta love, which was a little surprising after meeting Connor in the first few books. It was definitely cute, but not exactly what I was expecting. I kind of thought this is gonna be my favorite book of the series but I actually think I liked the first two better. I am really interested to see what happens with Caleb and Scarlet after seeing them in this book in the previous ones as well. Overall, I’m just really enjoying this series.

    What an enjoyable and amazing read. What a joy to see a 29 year old guy who some might think is a playboy totally step up to the plate when he finds out he is a single dad. The responsibility and love he showed his daughter is what kept me glued to every word of his story. Connor could have told Beth that he had no time to take care of Marley but instead he shared the responsibilities with her. Connor knew he needed help and when Jessa moved in across the street it was like fate was on his side. What an enjoyable and amazing read.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this story. I normally skip single-parent reads because I want dirty, dark, smutty reads not parenting 💁🏽‍♀️ but I’ve enjoyed this series from the very first book and this one was no exception.

Exploring what it means to go from nanny/babysitter to girlfriend came almost seamlessly for our heroine Jessa. She instantly meshed with not only Connor and Marley but his friends and life. This book was a lighthearted escape with passionate sexplorations. And we finally got a fantastic look inside of Frisky Business. The small glimpses prior were mere teasers that kept us wanting. While Hayes did sample the toys and Wolfie showed us the business side, we never go to the meat of what a sex-toy company should be...sexual exploration and experimentation. Getting a first hand look into a sex seminar at Frisky Business was so much fun. And seeing the couple implementing their new found tricks later added that heat factor. I hope to see Caleb and Scarlet on paper soon. And what about Ever, the fifth member of Frisky Business. We’ve seen so little of him I barely even remembered his name!! UPDATE: from what I understand this is the last book in the series. The author may revisit the crew from Frisky Business at a later date but that isn't a guarantee. 𝓋𝓍𝒽𝑒𝓍𝓃 𝓇𝑒𝒶𝒹𝓈 Instagram | Facebook | Bookbub

    2.5 stars rounded up. This was...okay-adjacent? I enjoyed some scenes but nothing really stood out, least of all chemistry or plot.

I did feel the Central American issue was solved a bit fast but aside from that I enjoyed the story. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
