Publisher's Summary

To the rude guy in apartment five,

I’m glad you’re happy to have moved into a new apartment, but no:

I do not want to have a beer with you.

I do not want to have a nude sleepover.

I do not want to make you breakfast, lunch or dinner, no matter how many lap dances you promise to give me.

I do not need you to serenade me through the walls at 1am.

And no, I have no interest in letting you take me on a date.

Sincerely, 

Magnolia Allen

P.S. And no, I do not want to know how many accents you can growl in during intimate moments. How is that even a thing?

P. P. S. Also, you will never find me standing naked in your living room ever again, so please stop leaving lingerie packages on my welcome mat.

Enjoyable

Magnolia Allen has moved across country to start a new life in San Francisco. A new promising job has presented itself. But so does a new neighbor in her apartment building. Magnolia comes home to find a note from the new neighbor which sets of a series of notes between them. Magnolia learns the "rude guy in apartment 5" is someone from her past, none other then Jaggar Scott. Emotions and sparks start to fly. As a long ago incident comes to light. Lauiie West did an amazing job with narrating and really nailed the emotions of the characters. I felt the storyline dragged out a bit but it really did all come together in the end and the last chapter was by far the best and so worth the wait!

5 Stars for the rude guy in apartment 5

Sometimes we just need a second chance, a do-over to get it right, and sometimes if we're lucky, we're given the opportunity. Magnolia and Jagger get that second chance in this funny and steamy romance. Magnolia is a quick-witted young personal blogger starting a new job at a secret startup. Jagger is the cocky, salacious note leaving neighbor in apartment 5. Magnolia and Jagger's relationship starts through a series of notes left on each other's doors. These notes will have you laughing and blushing at the comments written. However, all is fun and games until the man behind the curtain is revealed. Magnolia will have to face her past to move forward. Jagger will have to be ready to convince her to stick around. The twists and turns will have you on the edge of your seat. You can't go wrong with this fun romance.

Entertaining

Having read and listened to previous books by this author I was excited to listen To The Rude Guy In Apartment Five. This was a fun and entertaining listen that captured my attention from the first to the last chapter. This is Magnolia Allen and Jagger Scott’s story and is certainly steamy and at times funny. The narrator Laurie West is relatively new to me and she did a good job with the narration. Having moved to San Francisco for a new start, she meets her new neighbor when he sends her a note. When more notes follow she is determined to find out more about the rude man in apartment five. What she doesn’t realize is that he is a man from her past, Jagger. The chemistry between Magnolia and Jagger is off the charts and it was funny to listen as these two became reacquainted. This story is full of romance, passion and humour, the characters easy to relate to and made for an enjoyable listen.

Funny Entertaining listen

Audible Review 4.5 Stars for To The Rude Guy in Apartment Five (The Inappropriate Bachelors #1) If you are looking for a fun, entertaining book to listen to, I highly recommend this book. The narrator does a great job bringing the characters and the story to life. Magnolia Allen has moved to San Francisco to start over, she has a new job, a new apartment and a very interesting new neighbor. As soon as she moves in a note appears from the man in apartment 5 and what follows is a series of notes, when Magnolia decides to find out more about her rude neighbor she finds out he is none other than Jagger Scott a man from her past..... The chemistry is sizzling and the banter is witty as this couple get to know each other all over again, I really enjoyed this story, it has the perfect mix of love, passion and humour and Laurie West did a wonderful job with the banter, the chemistry and the story. Looking forward to more from The Inappropriate Bachelors.

What a fun book.

If you are after a book to listen to on audio than I would highly recommend this book. The narrator is great at bringing the characters alive. This is a fun book with a few twists and turns that had me guessing what is going to happen next. The plot is strong and well developed and the characters definitely have chemistry between them. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

Lol humor

It all started with the notes...Magnolia and Jagger what a great story. I was listening to it while at work hence not getting any work done, On the drive home just couldn't quit until I finished it. The notes between Apartment 4 and Apartment 5 were fun with flirting and banter between the 2 apartments. Magnolia is ready to start a new job when her blissful silence is interrupted when. Jagger moves into Apartment 5. This causing Magnolia to leave the first note on his door. The banter with the notes go on for a while before the actually meet each other, Then there is a blast from the past, they know each other. In this story you will follow their journey as they get to know each other again. I don't want to be a spoilers so I won't go into anymore in what the book is about but this is audiobook is a great story in my opinion. As far as the narration goes it was great although I like the dual point of views with 2 narrators but it was still a good audiobook

Sweet second chance romance

I really enjoyed this book. The narrator made a great job of using a different voice for the characters. It was a good second chance story that was easy to listen too. I particularly enjoyed the messages between the main protagonists. I will happily listen to more audio books by both the author j s copper and the narrator.

Funny from start to finish

This is my first audio book but I've read the book version of this story previously. Written, and obviously read, in the first person point of view for both main characters it is a saucy tale of two second chancers. It is incredibly well written with great planning going into the banter like dialogue between the characters. It draws the reader through it chapter with a smile on their face. The narrator has a great voice, which is easy to listen to. I did find that I needed to increase the pace slightly for me. My only slight concern was that she may have ended up with a throat issue by the end of the narration exercise from the way she spoke for Jagger, but I'm sure as a professional she's used to it!. Over all I have nothing bad to say about this audible presentation of this book. I loved it as much as I loved the original book itself and recommend both the spoken word version and the book xx I received a free copy of this audible book from the author and provide my honest review voluntarily

Magnolia and Jagger!

Magnolia has recently moved to San Francisco for a fresh start which includes her position as a social media influencer at a new company. Things are not exactly turning out as she planned when she finds out that the company deals in credit rather than fashion but on the plus side her co-workers quickly became her friends. To top it all off she has been exchanging sarcastic letters with her new neighbor only to discover that they have a past that didn’t end well. Jagger is a man with secrets who is looking for a fresh start as well. He is just as infuriating and just as sexy as he was all those years ago, but he is also determined to show her that he is not the man she remembers and just maybe once all is revealed they can overcome the past and have the future they always wanted. This is a story about overcoming the mistakes of the past that is filled with humorous banter, hot chemistry and two flawed characters who couldn’t be more perfect for each other.

Funny and Hot!

I really enjoyed this story. Magnolia and Jagger’s relationship was so sweet and I loved that it stemmed from years ago. The notes that they sent one another were funny. Both characters were believable and lifelike. The narrator was very believable as Magnolia. I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend.

So sweet

I adored this book! It was sweet and steamy. I loved how even though all this time had passed they still felt the same and could get past what happened.
