Summary

Dear grouchy neighbor: I’m considering your offer and need clarification before proceeding. Despite being an artist, I think you know that as a busy New Yorker, I am also practical and straightforward.

That said, I need to make sure you know that this could never turn into anything serious. I don’t care if you’re trying to get over your ex-girlfriend or hoping she’ll eventually want to get back together with you - just don’t project your messy feelings about her onto me.

Because, despite your resemblance to an underwear model, I won’t be falling for you. Ever.

Yours, with clear boundaries,

Bernadette

PS. I’d like to be very clear that regardless of whether or not we do this, nothing will change my feelings for your dog (and we both know she loves me too).

Dear nutty neighbor: As a lawyer, I must clarify that I never made an offer. It was a suggestion regarding the possibility of a non-permanent, no-strings-attached arrangement between two consenting adults whose beds are separated by a wall.

As a man who shares your disdain for messy feelings, I applaud your confidence in your ability to not fall for me. Hold on to that. I’d also like to make it clear that I don’t care if you want to get over your crush on your boss or if you still hope he’ll realize you’re the woman of his dreams. That said, I definitely wasn’t thinking about my ex-girlfriend when I kissed you in the laundry room, and I’m quite sure you weren’t thinking about your boss.

As a dog daddy, I'm glad you're so taken with my girl. But if you try to steal her I will get all Liam Neeson up in your pretty face.

As a busy New Yorker, I think clear boundaries are hot. I have one hour free to blow your mind tonight. So turn off Netflix, put down that glass of wine, and let’s do this.

Yours for now, 

Matt

My Thoughts on Come Back to Bed

Kayley Loring definitely has a new fan in me. I enjoyed the experience of this book so much. The banter between Matt and Bernadette. The great progression of their relationship. Bernadette's obsession with Matt's dog Daisy. It all fit together with so many other great moments into this incredible story. I laughed so often throughout and it left a huge smile on my face in the end.

The narrators for this were fantastic. I'm kind of in love with Teddy Hamilton's voice but I also loved MacKenzie Cartwright. I would love to listen to her in more romantic comedy in future because I think she has a great tone for that. Teddy Hamilton can pretty much read anything and I want to listen.

I look forward to more stories from this amazing author and narrators in future.

fun opposites attract rom com

Come back to bed is the first book I’ve read by Kayley Loring and it proved to be an enjoyable experience. I think Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton were great picks as narrators as they really brought the characters to life and kept the story moving along in a fun fashion. I thought the characters were well thought out with realistic flaws and strengths. If you are looking for a lighthearted story this book would be a great choice.

Quirky Romance

Bernadette meets Matt officially giving him the key to his aunts apartment. They are both attracted to each other but does not want a relationship. They arrange to have a sex only arrangement that leads to something more. Good Narration

Sexy Neighbor!

When you sexed up older neighbor is trying to hook you up with her younger and sexy nephew from 1000s of mile away and it's working. This is the book for you. I laughed and smiled though out this book. I loved the energy and chemistry between Bernadette (Bernie) and Matt is explosive. I loved the story line and the fantastic narrators Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton that brought it all to life. A must read and listen.

Come back to this great listen

This is my first story from the author . Loved how the author wrote a story of the characters afraid of opening up to people but mostly themselves. How two people have feelings for others in their lives the opposite $ex or so they think . Once they see each other a tingling grows in their bodies .
Hero is Matt. Heroine is Bernadette . .

Matt is renting his aunts apartment . His first time seeing Bernie is when he’s out and Bernie sees Matt’s dog , Daisy .
Bernie thinks she is in love with her boss but it’s all one sided . Matt thinks he’s in love with Veronica. But that is a do go also . Things heat up between Matt and Bernadette they are taking 2 steps forward and one step back .
Matt can’t take the misunderstanding between him and Bernie so he finds his own place . When that happens Bernie goes and visits her parents to clear her head .
Matt can’t take anymore so he goes back to talk to Bernadette, but Matt doesn’t find her at the flat.
Grab it and see does Matt find her, do they get a go of it . Love the ending

Both performers Mackenzie and Teddy were great . Their performance was strong , clear and they brought you right I. The story

I’m reviewing this story for audio book obsession

Matt and Bernadette match made in New York or more like Vermont on a farm.

I fell in love with this amazing story from the beginning. I choose the story due to the narrator Teddy Hamilton but glad I did Kayley Loring is Amazing. It took Matt a while to start fighting for the love of his life after a major break up. Mackenzie Cartwrite did an awesome for with her acting of Bernadette.

Wonderfully witty and romantic!

How have I not heard of Kayley Loring before? I am so glad I was recommended this book. It's one that you can listen to, fall in love with both main characters, and just enjoy. Matt is staying at his aunt's apartment across the hall from Bernadette. And that is all that it starts from. A slow burn romance, a lot of witty banter and a love for Matt's dog(who wouldn't love that pup!) will make you listen til the very end. Loring has us rooting for Matt and Bernie even before they get together! From crazy dinners with the neighbors to meeting the parents, to pure romance this book has it all. I love that it's low angst, smart characters, laugh out loud scenes and total entertainment. A great listen!

Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright are amazing! This team has great comedic timing, and their voices compliment each other. It's perfectly cast for the characters, as I enjoy their conversational style, easy narration. Loved this combination and hope for more.

A perfect beach read

Kayley Loring, a completely new to me author and I’ve got to say, I loved her writing, the story, and the narration - basically, the whole package. Yes it might have been a little predictable, but it’s one of those books that you read the synopsis, know the story, and still go ahead and read. You don’t like sweet, predictable and romantic, don’t read this. Sometimes though, all a girl wants is a sweet romantic angst free, love story. If that’s the case, this is the book for you. I was lost in everything Matt and Bernadette for a couple of days, and I loved it. Enemies to lovers, friends with benefits, no attachments, opposites attract etc etc. You know what I’m talking about. Great characters A perfect beach read rom com. I listened to the audio version, I loved it, stick to the pool though, that way you won’t get sand in your earplugs and it’ll drown out all those screaming children - ha ha.

2 Words...SWOON WORTHY!

The slow burn between Bernie and Matt is to die for...!!!! I found myself screaming in my head "JUST KISS ALREADY!" Kayley is a master at writing and developing her characters in a way that has you rooting for them the instant you start reading. You will not regret taking the time to listen to this book, the story is sweet and funny! Also lets be real, who doesn't love listening to Teddy Hamilton's voice in yet another sexy male role?!

Stellar RomCom

I went through most of this book with the biggest, dopiest smile on my face. It’s just every single thing you could want from a romcom. A meet cute, opposites attract, a quirky cast of side characters, scorching chemistry that plays well between the sheets, main characters you want to be/be with and most importantly a great dog.

The narrators are both amazing. You are able to get completely lost in the story.

Absolutely sublime!

Fabulous Story & Listen🎧 Delightful & Enjoyable!

This is an enjoyable and entertaining story. It is well written, well told with great storylines that are original and interesting. Once I started the book I did not want to put it down and I had a smile on my face the entire time. I adored the characters, Bernadette and her quirkiness, her straight forwardness was refreshing. I was happy that Matt was not the angsty, arrogant arse, which was my first impression of him. Coming from a breakup does not bring the out the best of anyone. Sure, compared to Bernadette it seemed like he had a stick up, well you know where. But Bernadette gets that stick out and brings out the best of him. I loved those two together, they were so different yet they complimented each other so well. The dialogue and banter between them was great, smart and witty. The texts & emails between them were just hilarious. Dolly’s messages were hilarious too. I highly recommend this book, it will put a smile on your face, Bernadette and Matt’s story is a fun one, there is drama, a little bit of angst, a whole lot of laughs and lovely build-up to a great romance. I was rooting for these two, I was happy to see them get past their issues and recognize love and what they had. Secondary characters in this book are great too. Kayley Loring, thank you for this great story and the pleasant, emotional rollercoaster ride.

I listened to the Audible edition, Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton are wonderful narrators and voice performers. They bring the characters to life, give each their own voice and personality. You can hear the emotions of the characters projected in their performances. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

Thank you 🎧@AudiobookObsession #AudiobookObsession #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

5/5

Sigh. Come Back to Bed was both sweet and sexy. It was funny and sassy. Kayley Loring wrote a great story of opposite neighbors who deliberately push each other's buttons. The smart banter was refreshing. Bernadette was able to go toe-to-toe with Matt in witty verbal sparring. I also liked how some roles were reversed while others were in place. Overall Come Back to Bed was a great read and made me wast to check out more of Kayley Loring's books. Also, Teddy Hamilton's voice is amazing.

I received this book for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Come back to bed , oh yeah!

Come back to bed is a wonderful life story. Bernadette and Matthew weren’t looking for love, but it found them. Storyline had a great flow and kept me interested from start to finish. Narration was on point. McKenzie and Teddy... swoon worthy. Kayley Loring did a bang up job!

So sweet!

I loved this book! It was a new-to-me author, and the female voice actor was new to me. I've listened to several with Teddy Hamilton and he's always great! The story line was good-- neighbors enter a no strings agreement that turns into more. I love that they didn't find their HEA until Bernadette (the lead female character) found herself and realized her own passions first. I love the humor and laughed loud so many times! The sexy scenes were incredibly hot and also believable! Chemistry was off the charts. Will definitely look for more by this author and narrators!

So sweet!!

This book was a sweet easy read. I laughed really hard at times, and swooned just as hard other times. Yes in the beginning Matt has it bad for someone else, and Bernadette is crushing elsewhere, but these two fit. Also I love when dogs are in a book!! The narration was great, and Teddy Hamilton is life!!!! #audiobookobsession

So funny

Loved it . Quirky Bernadette meets uptight Matt was a book leaving you in stitches. From the beginning to the end I found myself smiling or laughing. Laughing out loud as I was driving to work. The story was written and told great. The narration was perfect. Very fun book one I recommend for a good laugh .
