Kez is a Teissian refugee living in San Diego in the year 2267, working at the Department of Extra-Terrestrial Immigration, and he doesn't like much. He doesn't like Earth, he doesn't like humans, he doesn't like his job, and he definitely doesn't like his bubbly next-door neighbour, Bia, who is convinced they are meant to be together. She's too young for him, their person ...more

I was prepared to dislike this book because both the heroine and hero were aliens - and alien/alien romance just sounded boring. However, I was delightfully surprised to find I loved Bia the purple alien heroine. She was sweet and peppy, never really fit in anywhere and didn't really know her own cultures so she became obsessed with human culture. That was cute.

She was willing to try new things, excited to make new friends and find work, and was absolutely positive her next-door neighbour was "t

This was such a treat. I've been waiting for Kez's story after he appeared in the New Guy because he was just so grumpy with Maggie and protective of Ro that I wanted to see how the author would make him into a sympathetic hero. The answer is that Kez is painfully insecure about himself - his race, what he has to offer, his place in the new world his people have settled in. He thinks it's easier to keep to himself than to try and form connections because he's always been shunned and ignored by o ...more

I freaking love this series. The clash and blending of alien and humans... so I was slightly bummed when I found out that this book was about two different/similar alien species...reminding myself that I love this authors originality and story telling skills I delved in.

The focus of this story is Bia and Kez. The light shiny young preppy Bia ( a Balor ) and her neighbour the mopey whiney dark old Kez ( a Balin ) after working for DETI since leaving his home planet. Kez is terrified of returning

Simply because I cannot read a full book solely from a male’s POV. I just couldn’t get into it. However, I appreciated the little author’s note at the end of the book. I don’t know why people had any issues with it though. I thought it was honest, and quite frankly I appreciated that the author tried her best to be respectful and sensitive.

Grumpy Kez.

Kez's story and to be honest I wasnt very keen to read it but as it's the latest story in the series I didn't want to leave it out. I think what was putting me off was the fact that he was such a douche to Maggie in her and Ro's book. He was unpleasant and seemed to dislike humans intensely. After reading his story I may have changed my opinion of him but the story itself failed to win me over as I had a few issues with it. Firstly the story starts off with Kez literally hiding away f

I've enjoyed the previous books in this series and was very excited to see a new one pop up. I like that this series shows the day-to-day working 'aliens' as opposed to many sci-fi romances that focus on these galactic mega-buff warriors. Aliens at the office - love it! I also like that the crises presented in these books is more to do with misunderstandings/differences between the humans and the different alien species rather than some (on the one hand) "have to save to the world" issue or (on ...more

A very good book

I expected a simple little fantasy romance, but this book has some unexpected layers. Kez, the hero of the story at first is not very likeable. He's gruff. He lies and he steals. But then the author reveals layer by layer the experiences that has shaped Kez's outlook on life. I started to feel compassion for Kez and at the end of the book I wanted him to have his happy ever after. I was glad that Kez had stop letting a bunch of ignorant racist define who he was. By doing that he

Unique and well written

I waited for this book! And yes I enjoyed it. Kez was the main character through out the book, yes we have Bia and her unconditional love for him but I felt her far away as far as maybe a second character not a lead.
This book was well written and I could feel Kez struggles.

Totally recommend it!

Interesting reading

I enjoyed The Guy Next Door with Kez's interesting perspective. As someone who is not biracial, I didn't pick up on issues that might bother others. I appreciated the struggle Kez had trying to overcome his deeply ingrained need to steal so that he always had that "little cushion" against poverty. Well-written story.

Self doubt

In loving eyes all is right, and in Bia's eyes Kez can do no wrong. She sees only good in him, while Kez's self esteem issues are all he sees. Bia is in it for the long term and will continue to make Kez see himself and her for what they could be together.

Another great book in the series!

Another great book in the series! I liked that the author explored a sensitive issue, of being a biracial alien, and I feel like she did it well. Can't wait for the next book!

Two aliens

This was a unique but relatable story about age, race, and making a living from the perspective of an alien biracial male.
I love this series!
