Publication Date: April 27, 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Zelda Sullivan is a successful news journalist living with PTSD. The disorder causes her to have agoraphobia, an anxiety disorder, which makes her hide herself away from the world.
Santiago Ryan recently moved to Zelda’s small town from Ireland to work as a cop. He’s Zelda’s neighbor, and someone she loathes because he turns her life into a noisy nightmare with his antics next door. Unknown to Santiago, Zelda tweets about him using the hashtag #JerkNextDoor.
When Zelda’s boss assigns her a big story that involves working with the local police department, it’s a career offer that Zelda can’t turn down, even if that means being forced to work outside of her safety zone.
In time Zelda discovers there’s a lot more to the tall, dark, and handsome Santiago than meets the eye. He knows how to handle her curves and helps bring out a long-suppressed boldness in her.

Title: Falling For The #JerkNextDoor
Author: Theda Monroe
It was incredibly difficult to get into this book. I had taken a chance at this new author since the blurb was very well written and I was curious at going through this book and finding out what would happen between Zelda and Santiago. There were parts that struck me as funny - it was hard not to at least smile at the many tweets Zelda writes about the #JerkNextDoor AKA Santiago the neighbor.
Considering that Zelda suffers from agoraphobia and PTSD, I was surprised she was able to leave the confines of her apartment, event her building on top of being able to confront Santiago with his extra curricular activities. From the way that Theda Monroe described Zelda, she was suffering from a very high for, of these conditions, which made Zelda's decision to take her journalism case more than curious. While these characters' beginning (introduction) was more than a little rocky, their chemistry is undeniable. Maybe it's how the story is written or my lack of paying enough attention to all the details that had an impact on my enjoyment of the novel, and maybe I'll try again at a later date, but Falling For The #JerkNextDoor wasn't one of my favourites.
