I didn’t think I could love Teagan Hunter anymore than I already do—but than she goes and makes this soft, feel-good romcom and I am once again proven wrong. Love Thy Neighbor is the what every low angst romcom aspires to be…but way better.

Don’t fall for your roommate…especially when he’s your best friend.
Cooper Bennett is my best friend.
That’s all he is and all he ever will be.
Nothing will change that.
Accidentally seeing him naked? Please. So not a big deal.
Having less-than-tame thoughts? I mean, have you seen this guy? Who could blame me?
Kissing him? It was a one-time mistake, and it will not be repeated.
Falling into bed with him? Uh-oh…
It’s fine. We’re fine.
We’re Caroline and Cooper. Best friends until the end. Nothing has ever come our way that we couldn’t survive together.
Surely, we can handle this too…

“Except Caroline didn’t run. She didn’t hide. Didn’t even cover her eyes. No. She stared. And I mean gawked. Ogling me like I was her favorite ice cream flavor and she was being handed the last scoop.”
I couldn’t put this book down for the life of me. I didn’t realize either, just how much I missed Hunter’s writing until I picked up my ARC and decided to step into the world that she created.
Caroline and Cooper are exactly what I imagined a friends to lovers trope too look like. They both have this comfortability about them with each other that Hunter effortless expresses by showing us who each of them are together and how they are outside of each other. I enjoyed watching the back and forth banter (which is a Hunter signature!) between the two as their attraction and sexual tension began to rise with each chapter.
I loved how we got to see this progression of their feelings and the kick off point to their relationship outside of their friendship. Usually with the friends to lovers books that I have read, it typically—if not always— has at least on of the characters already infatuated with the other before the beginning of the novel. With that in mind, it was so refreshing to finally see that shock of new feelings from both characters instead of just one. I absolutely felt like the inciting moment was hilarious and better than a1 steak sauce.
Overall, Love Thy Neighbor is another amazing feel-good binge-worthy, romcom that had me laughing hysterically and wishing the story never ended. Its been a few days since I finished the book and I can honestly say that these characters are stuck in my head on a constant loop—so if that isn’t a reason why you should pick this beauty up, then I don’t know what is!
