Book Review: Adjacent: A Building 402 Novella by Alexandra Warren
He’s the last guy she should be checking for. Arrogrant. Sexy. A certified f*ck boy.
She’s the only girl he can’t seem to get off of his mind. Ambitious. Attractive. Adjacent.
The proximity of them being neighbors certainly doesn’t help either of their causes. And when one side is ready to pursue their curiosity about the person next door, it quickly becomes clear that anything goes in building 402…
Sistah Girls, this weekend’s read was just what I needed to relax after online classes. Alexander Warren’s comedic timing was perfect and will grab your attention from the very first page.
Her characters are relatable and I found myself wanting more. This is a novella but you defiantly will be satisfied if shorter stories are your thing.
AJ was exactly as described in the synopsis. He knew he was sexy so he was very arrogant. Everybody knows the type: The one you hate to love. The one you wish wasn’t that way. He was all of that. There are times where you wanna smack him. Then there are times where he makes up for it. In my head, AJ has a beard and a fade with the line that leads to nowhere. LOL.
Eve was not exactly the girl next door type. She knew AJ was a F*ck boy but it was hard to stay away. Their witty banter was one of the things I enjoyed the most.
Eve had the comebacks for AJ and he deserved it. Both characters progressed and weren’t stagnant and that was something I also enjoyed. I love when people better themselves no matter by how much.
One of my favorite scenes was the one where they see each other at church. For some reason, I thought them being so shy around each other was cute.
To me, the cover says more than you think it does, once you start reading then you will understand. Overall I felt like I knew people like Eve and AJ–especially AJ, we all know at least one. For a novella, the pacing was just enough.
I without a doubt give this a 4-star rating and I recommend this book for sure if you like feel-good contemporary romance.
