Summary

A sexy single-dad stand-alone romance coming soon from New York Times best-selling author Kendall Ryan.

Life threw me a curveball. An adorable eight-pound, four-ounce curveball with her mother’s eyes and my dark hair. I’d like to think my single-dad game is strong, but honestly? I’ve been struggling a little.

When a beautiful young woman moves in next door and offers to give me a hand, I jump at the chance to hire her as a nanny. Jessa is amazing with my daughter. She’s also patient, kind, and way too pretty.

The number one rule of hiring a nanny? Don’t bed the nanny.

It’s a rule I intend to keep.

But as the days pass, I begin to realize how much my life is missing. Companionship. Romance. Intimacy. When I discover my heart has space for one more female, it’s a lost cause, another curveball. The hot-as-hell nanny is leaving soon for a mission trip to Central America. No sense in letting myself fantasize about Jessa being a permanent part of my life.

The closer we get, the more difficult it becomes to keep my feelings in check, because my heart won’t listen. And neither will my libido.

Well, you know what they say. Rules are meant to be broken....

BOOK 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I enjoyed listening to this series but so far Conner is my favourite.

I loved there was no relationship, it was a straight forward and they both honest. It was nice for a change than a back and forth romance book.

He was so cute with his daughter and she was so good with his daughter.

Loved it!

Easy feel good read...

The Stud Next Door is a great addition to the Frisky Business Series. It is a sweet story with very little angst and all the fun and good feels.

👍

Warning when the book ends you have about 30 minutes of the first book that starts playing. Why is went back to book one was a little odd but just wanted to make you aware. As for this book it was good, Vansssa’s voice took a while to get use to and when she was reading and it went to the male voice it was not good at all. I think that was my only downfall to it but overall a good read and a good addition to the series.

Love this series!

This was a great single dad finds love while admitting he can’t do it all alone story. Connor and Jessa are a fantastic couple who found love when they weren’t looking for it but were willing to listen to their feelings and act on them. The guys of Frisky Business are all so different but have found the women who fit them to a T. This story was sweet, steamy and just right in every way. Jacob Morgan and Vanessa Edwin were a great fit for these characters and did an amazing job bringing them to life and making me fall in love with this story. Anxiously awaiting the final couple (no spoilers here) in this great group of friends and family. If you live Kendall Ryan (as I do) you will love this book as well.

Got me out of a book funk ❤️

This got me out of book funk. What’s great about Ryan’s books is that her story’s are enticing with enough relationship plot to satisfy any romance listener without the need to commit for 8+ hours. I needed something light, funny and sexy and another Frisky Business book hit the spot. As always I love Jacob Morgan but if I have to be honest I’m just not sure I like Edwin’s voice.

Didn’t love it.

First, I love Jacob Morgan’s narration, always (thus the 4 stars). Vanessa Edwin is a fine narrator but her male voice is horrible and I personally never got over how bad it was. The story was typical, which I normally like, in a, daddy needs nanny kind of way, but I didn’t love or wasn’t able to connect with all the characters, so there was that. It’s also annoying when a writer has a 2 month old baby doing things that they’re not yet capable of doing.

Loved Jessa and Connor

Really enjoyed this single dad/nanny romance. Narrated by Jacob Morgan and Vanessa Edwin made this story even better. These two were fantastic together.

This was the first book of the series that I have listened to but I will go back and check out the previous two books.

Jessa and Connor were smoking hot together. They just fit so well together and she was so good with his baby girl. I was really glad that there wasn’t really any drama or angst in this book (other than Jessa planning on leaving for her mission trip). This was just a great romance about two people meeting and falling for each other.

Beautiful Romance

I love everything about this storyline! Especially the amazing author Kendall Ryan ❤️
Connor is the sexy single dad and Jessa is his new beautiful next door neighbor.
He really needs a nanny for his baby girl Marlee. Connor asks Jessa if she is interested in the position. I was so happy when she said yes! Ok reading/listening to books are like watching a really good rom-com movie. And, Connor’s Frisky Business partners are so funny, I loved them.
The narrators especially Jacob Morgan 🥰💖🔥 is amazing! Vanessa Edwin is one of my favorites. But they performed excellenty!
