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

Sweet Romance

Come Back To Bed By Kayley Loring is a romantic comedy that I listened to on audio narrated by Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton.

This is the first book of Kayley's that I have read and it definitely won't be my last. The story pulled me in and I had to know how it was going to end.

The book is classified as a romantic comedy but I didn't really get that while listening to it. But I still loved the sweet romance. It gave me all the feels.

Mackenzie and Teddy did an amazing job on the narration. They really bought the story to life.

Cute, light and humorous story and a great audio

A cute, quick, fresh story which was exactly what I needed at the moment to lighten my mood. It was funny and sexy and I enjoyed myself with those two. I can’t say there was anything too exceptional or over the top about this book but the audio performance was good and it’s always a pleasure to listen to Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright. They sure highetened the experience with this story and played the part of each character perfectly.

Bernadette and Matt were such polar opposites but they somehow clicked together. Their banter and witty exchanges left me with a huge grin on my face. They were trying to fight this attraction between them for quite some time but eventually succumbed to the emotions that were inevitable. It was nice to watch them finally admit their feelings. Also, the steamy scenes were pretty hot and passionate.

The story was more or less predictable in some parts. There were no big surprises along the way, nor some huge unexpected twists, but it flowed nicely and it kept my interest.

If you read this book, definitely pick the audio version. The story itself was sweet, cute, light and sexy, but it was the audio that made this experience one that I really loved. If you need a light, humorous read to cheer you up and put a smile on your face, then this would definitely be the read for you. The audio performance was really good. Don’t miss it.

Wonderfully funny

This was my first book by Kayley Loring and I loved it! Tons of LOL moments where I’m sure anyone driving beside me on my way to work thought I was deranged but that’s okay by me.

Really adorable couple who were brought together by a loving Aunt. Loved all the quirky moments and the real life reactions.

The narration was amazing. Both Teddy and Mackenzie were great at bringing the characters to life.

You’re going to definitely want this audiobook for yourself!

Enjoyable!

I enjoyed the story and the narration... Matt and Bernadette’s story was so much fun. Easy to read. Entertaining and well written. Sweet story and engaging listen. Mackenzie Cartwright is pretty new to me, and I have listened to Teddy Hamilton before. Their narration complemented the story really well. Great job.

Adorably Sexy Romantic Comedy

This is my first time reading/listening to Kayley Loring! This book was a happy, smexy (smart & sexy) read! Bernadette and Matt are opposites who greatly attract! All of the side characters are entertaining!! When I need something light, fun, and happy, I plan on reading more by this author!
I also enjoyed both of the narrators.

Fantastic RomCom!

This is the first of Kayley Loring's books that I have had the pleasure to listen to and it was by far the perfect one to start with! I am always a sucker for a good RomCom to help me escape the stresses of life and this one quickly became a favorite for me! The characters were quirky, unique, and had a level of sarcasm that will keep you laughing for days after finishing!

The narration was amazing! Mackenzie was new to me going into this book but has now become one of my favorite female narrators! Her and Teddy Hamilton made a fantastic team!

Come Back to Bed

This was such a fun well written book, with plenty of sexy and exciting thrown in. I loved the characters and the story, they were so great and funny together. The narration by Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton was phenomenal, it couldn't have been better.

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!

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.

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

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!

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!

Hate, love at it's best

This was the first book by Kayley Loring for me but will not be the last. I absolutely love this story.

Bernadette is a quirky artist that instead of following her dreams she is working for a wealthy artist and is his "work wife". She has had an unhealthy crush on him to the point she isn't looking for love anywhere else. When Matt moves into the apartment next to her she falls in love, with his dog Daisy. She thinks Matt is a jerk although a hot jerk. Their hate / attractions grows and soon it grows to love.

Mackenzie Cartwright and Teddy Hamilton are pure ear candy in this book. I loved listening to them from beginning to end. They were spot on with the story, their timing was perfect and I loved it.

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
