Like her other books, Love Handles and The Supermodel's Best Friend, Galway's newest is top notch in romantic comedy and pure heart. Rose and Mark make a phenomenal couple and just when you think it's hopeless -- love conquers all. Galways really captures the essence of geek culture and strips away, though, at the stereotypes about techies and curvier women. While staying within the standard conventions of the romance genre, Galways creates real, vibrant characters who stick with yo -- and make you want more. I read and loved Love Handles and was happy to see Liam and Bev make an appearance here. If you like Alice Clayton's books you'll love Galway.

How broke would you need to be to try out for a modeling gig? Well, as long as I'm not getting naked, I wouldn't mind at all. But it's pretty sad when you're trying out for a plus-sized model and they tell you you're too fat for it. What!? Rose is 200 pounds, unemployed, and barely has a roof over her head (she's staying at a fancy home in Oakland rent-free because her roommate got herself knocked up.) She lives next door to Mark, a computer whiz-geek that doesn't get out much. At first, the two clash, but they seem to mellow out when she suspects that he has a crush on her prettier, thinner (yes, even pregnant, she's still thinner than Rose) roommate and he thinks she might be a lesbian. Funny! Mark is a little shy, but he's so adorable, even though he gets a little creepy obsessing over Rose's large, voluptuous breasts--an element that works in favor of fat women. Rose is a sassy, outspoken, and abrasive broad. The two make a fantastic pair, a dynamic duo. I like that they help each other out. Along with a cast of zany characters, the story dives into a strange and messy love triangle (or square). You see, Blair is the roommate that got knocked up by Rose's ex, whose mother owns the house they live in. ??? Although wildly convoluted, story is a tantalizing recipe of unconventional chaos. For Rose, being so big has never stopped the men wanting her for sex; they just would rather not be seen with her. That's sort of flattering and sad. A comical and romantic tale of Fatso and the Geek. It'll prove that shy nerds can rock your world like no other. You want to see how this sweet story unfolds for luckless Rose.

"Romantic comedy" is a great description of this book.  It's a really nice romance -- somewhat idealized, of course, because novels are for fantasizing and escaping -- but with plenty of real-life situations and feelings, humor, and a surprising amount of poignancy.  I enjoyed it so much that I immediately purchased "Love Handles" -- which actually comes first in this loosely related series, but "This Time Next Door" was perfectly fine as a standalone story.

This was a fun read and would have been a sweet romance without the graphic sex and loose morals of almost EVERY character! Is this really how young people act today or is it a Californication thing?

Nothing special.
