NEXT TO YOU by Daisy Prescott Part of the multi-author Friends with Benefits series

A sports romance best seller!

“If you want to date me, all you need to do is say the word. I’d never let you go.”

I added Sage to my rugby club’s annual list of women who are off limits thinking I could protect her from the gorillas I play with. Aspen's a small town in the off season when the dating pool shrinks to the size of a melted snowflake. Never did I think I’d be the one to break the code and date her.

Even if it’s all for show. A wager between friends. An excuse to hang out with her more.

Nothing more than that. Right?


Who agrees to date their best friend over a green smoothie? Apparently this girl right here.

Now the man-bun-sporting South African rugby god next door is my fake boyfriend. I need to rebuild my confidence after some poor dating decisions. Who could be better to fluff my ego than Aspen’s hottest bachelor?

This situation is a win-win. Right?

  Next to You is a standalone Romantic Comedy/New Adult Romance about a rugby player and an heiress in Aspen. Stan and his man bun first appeared in the Modern Love Story Short, Take for Granted. This is a full-length novel told in dual POVs.

4 Stars!

Next to You is a wonderful new standalone by Daisy Prescott. It’s refreshing, amusing, and heart felt, mixed in with a little sass and man bun hotness. Stan (sometimes known as Lee… get it… Stan-ley) and Sage are neighbors who are great friends. One day an idea is formed that they would “date” each other to keep others from attempting to come on to them. The only slight problem they fail to admit to each other is that they both each secretly want one another. How long will “dating” turn into an honest to goodness all access relationship?
I really liked Stan/Lee. I haven’t read many books with South African hotness nor rugby players who live in Aspen, Colorado so it was refreshing. Annnddd I’ll admit, I totally heard a South African accent in my head when I was reading. And it was Hot. Not going to lie. I think that is my favorite accent ever. Stan is the kind of guy who is kind of a player, but with the right woman, he’s all in. And unbeknownst to Sage, she’s the right woman to go all in with.
Sage has sworn of men. She has the worst luck, and her most recent ex-boyfriend, another rugby player who is friends with Stan, was one of her worst ideas. Sage is used to being neighbors/friends with Stan, but that doesn’t mean that she hasn’t fantasized about it being more. She just doesn’t think that he is in any way interested. Although Sage is an heiress, no one in Aspen is aware of that since she works and lives modestly.
I thought that Sage and Stan had tons of chemistry. Although it was a friends to lover’s story, the progression was natural and not the same old story. I loved how Sage would make fun of Stan’s man bun in a way that was teasing, but in no way mean or hurtful. I felt hat small aspect gave depth to their relationship and showed their familiarity with each other even more.  Once they were “dating” and starting to figure everything out, I thought that the story got even better.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 only because there were a few scenes that I thought tended ramble and I didn’t see the point in a couple things happening in the big picture of the story. Besides that, I think that the book was great. I think that a hero with an accent is H-O-T and a South African accent is even H-O-T-T-E-R! This book is a friends to lover’s story that will always stand out as being unique.  I highly recommend Next To You.
