Naughty Neighbor by Janet Evanovich

Genre: Romance

Press Secretary, Louisa Brannigan, is devoted to her job. She makes sure to get to work on time and does whatever is required of her, even if it’s after work hours. The one stumbling block is her upstairs neighbor, Pete Streeter. He’s keeping her awake at all hours of the night with the constant ringing of his phone. To top it all off, he’s now taking to stealing her morning newspaper! She confronts him about his behavior, but instead she finds she can’t stay angry at this sexy man for long.

Pete Streeter is a journalist. A reporter on a mission. He recently read a newspaper article about a pig running loose in the halls of Congress and suddenly the pig vanished. Not an easy feat for anything that big. It turns out the pig was brought in by a politician, Stuart Maislin, as part of a goodwill animal husbandry program and the pig has been genetically altered to have a very low fat ratio. Now, the pig is missing and Pete want to know why.

When Maislin spots Pete and Louisa together at a political function, he convinces her boss to fire her. Pete elicits Louisa’s help in getting to the bottom of this little mystery, but they find they can’t keep their hands off each other.

This is a cute romance. It’s one of Janet Evanovich’s older Loveswept romances re-vamped for present times. She changed things like VHS to DVD. Personally, I don’t think it’s necessary to do things like that since the copyright is clearly 1992, but the book is updated. Anyway, it’s a sweet romance to spend an afternoon reading – it’s a one-sitting book.

For Reading Challenges: TBR Lite


  1. Oh that's so interesting how she changed it to make it from today instead of the 90's. For books where the story would be the same regardless of the year, I admit it feels so ooolllldd when I'm reading about 80's clothes and all that (like the beginning of the stephanie plum series)

  2. I've read the whole Plum series but only a few of these older books. It sounds like an easy weekend read and has a great cover! Thanks for your review!

  3. Her Loveswept Romance books always have cute covers. I love the cover of this one...and also Thanksgiving. It has a bunny on the cover, lying on its back in front of a fireplace!

  4. Even though these are no where as near good as her Plum books, they are still sweet. Would like to read more of them

  5. Jenny - I kind of like reading about 80's clothes and a time before we all had cellphones.

    Wrighty - These books are really nice when you just want to relax and have a quick read.

    Missy - I have the Thanksgiving one too, which I meant to read last November and didn't get to. LOL Maybe this year :)

    Blodeuedd - It seems like more and more of these light romances by her are being released.
