It was a solid, enjoyable read. I'm sure the whole theme of overcoming challenges in one's life is something a lot of people will be able to relate to while reading this book. The predictability was something that hindered the plot quite a bit. My favorite characters had to be Jaron, Brian and Nathan. I, however, disliked some of the characters mostly because of their limited development throughout the duration of the book. The Next Door Boys is primarily a short-read that will satisfy a reader's taste buds if they're looking for a Mormon contemporary romance.
