What happens when one night turns into eighteen years?

There’s nothing like starting your Monday morning with a positive pregnancy test.
Trust me, I know. Because I’m looking at one right now.
All I can think is: Oh, hell. My grandmother is going to kill me.
This might just send her to an early grave, so there’s only one option—pretending the father is my new husband.
If only he’d agree to fake it.
Kai Connors was supposed to be nothing more than a one-night stand. A long, dirty, one-night stand fueled by one too many tequila shots, where the only promise was to never speak of it again.
But if my unfairly sexy next-door neighbor gets his way, this fake marriage could turn out to be very, very real…


  • Hot Neighbor and one night

    By cconcus
    Like all of Emma Hart's books I flew through this one and enjoyed every minute of it. Kai and Ivy story was a fun, fluffy read. There were many laugh out loud moments as well. These characters as well as the side characters were all very love-able. Ivy's relationship with her family members made the book more enjoyable and her grandmother was a hoot with her "demands/thoughts". I can't wait to read about Ivy's friends and sisters stories.
  • Another great rom-com from Emma!

    By Samantha B. Sokol
    Another great rom-com from Emma! Somewhat of an abrupt start, Ivy finds out she is pregnant resulting from a one-night stand with her neighbor Kai. Across from her apartment, Kai has always had a huge crush on Ivy but has never acted on things until the party that brought them together. Now somewhat forced together, Ivy informs Kai he’s going to be a father and he takes it as his chance to be in her life potentially for good. I found myself constantly laughing out loud over the fact that these two had strong feelings for each other but were scared to act on them. Throwing in the hilarity of them pretending to be engaged and married just for Ivy’s grandmother while her father knows the truth added in another level of comedy. In the end, the chemistry between these two were strong enough to come to the surface and while they wouldn’t rush into things because of the pregnancy, they did decide to give each other a real chance at a relationship. Forever loving the witty banter and comedy that Emma gives readers in her books, and I can’t wait for the next one! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
  • A great story!

    By MegM927
    4 Stars The Girl Next Door is a hilarious stand-alone novel by Emma Hart. If you haven’t read the prequel The One Night Stand Next Door, I suggest doing so before reading this because it gives you a little bit of the backstory. Ms. Hart is the queen of rom-coms and after reading TGND-it is every bit deserved. I had the biggest crushes on Ivy and Kai from the very first page! The banter between them had me busting out laughing and I seriously could not get enough of them. This rom-com will have you laughing non-stop and never wanting it to end. I seriously adored the characters and highly recommend reading it!
  • Great Read

    By AlexStarReader1
    It was a great book. Just hate that the epilogue wasn’t what I wanted. I wanted to know more! Guess we’ll continue to read about them in other books.
  • Great book

    I loved Ivy and Kai’s story. We got a sneak peak into their dynamic in One night stand next door. I don’t think is necessary to read it for this book but definitely worth a read. This is what happens when a one night stand doesn’t remain just 1 night. Follow these two in how they maneuver this thing called life. You won’t be disappointed and omg the laughs. Awesome book.
