Dad Next Door by Willow Dixon (Crimson Club book 5)

In this latest installment of the Crimson Club series, we finally get to know more about the elusive Quinn and the Dad Next Door...

From the blurb:

Moving into my first house is step one in starting my new life. Next is setting up my contracting business. I’m so focused on my future that a relationship is the last thing on my mind.

Then I meet Tristan, the single dad next door. He might be my total opposite, but we click in a way I’ve never experienced, and he quickly becomes one of my closest friends.

After attending a wedding as his fake date to make his ex, and his ex’s new boyfriend, jealous, I can’t deny that things between us have changed. I always thought I was straight, but being with Tristan doesn’t just feel good, it feels right.

Having a fling with my neighbor might be a recipe for disaster, but it could also be exactly what we both need to finally move on from our pasts.

Quinn and Tristan’s story is a friends-to-lovers, bi-awakening romance between a retired porn model who just moved into his first home, and a single dad trying to navigate life after divorce. Expect a fake relationship, an age gap, found family, mental health rep, and all the feels as these neighbors find out that sometimes opposites really do attract. It is the fifth novel in the exciting new Crimson Club series but can be read as a standalone.

Heather's Review:

I've been waiting for Quinn's story for a while, since his recurring role in the other Crimson Club books and for the most part, I was incredibly happy with the Dad Next Door - from the friendship to the not-so-fake dating to Quinn's sexual awakening and the characters growth as they became friends, then best friends then lovers... I like their communication, particularly around Quinn's job, but... I wanted more from the mental health rep... Quinn kept talking about his ADHD, but I didn't find it matched his actions and it felt forced in places.

That being said, this book was a wonderful addition to the Crimson Club universe, had great cameos from the guys and really helped flesh out the future of the guys, along with giving us a sweet HEA!

About the Author

What can I say about myself? It’s kind of like being the new kid in school and being asked to tell everyone a bit about yourself. Anyone else forget everything they’ve ever liked, thought of, and even their name in those moments?

A few facts about me; I’m a veteran, I’m Canadian, and I love books! I’ve been writing my own stories since I was eight and wrote my first novel at sixteen. I’m the first to admit those attempts weren’t my best work, but they started me on a journey of creating stories that has led me to fulfilling my dream of becoming an author. I’ve written and published in several genres under different names, but MM is by far my favorite, and I’m so happy to be able to share my stories with people today.

I currently live on Canada’s east coast with my kiddo and my cats. I have a shoe collecting addiction, and I enjoy taking long walks, discussions with friends, and reading anything and everything I can get my hands on.
