It's Tag Crane's job to be the life of the party. Traveling from one exotic locale to another is just part of running the luxurious Crane Hotel empire. But even paradise isn't perfect. Devising a new business strategy is keeping Tag up at night-and so is the Great Dane barking at all hours in the apartment below his. To muzzle the problem, Tag charges downstairs . . . right into the most beautiful, blond distraction he's ever seen.

Dog-sitting by day, bartending by night. It's not exactly the life Rachel Foster dreamed of. But when Tag Crane rushes in, all mountain-man shoulders and obscenely sexy smile, needing her help for the Crane Hotels, it's a fantasy come true. What's the harm in a fun no-strings fling? Only a fool would give her heart to a billionaire player like Tag-until suddenly the one man who can't be caught is the one flirting with forever . . .

My Review:

This book got me in the FEELS! I ADORED Tag and Rachel.  Rachel has had a bad relationship in the past and she's not looking for love.  She has to learn to love herself again and be the woman she was before her ex. She hasn't had the best of luck as of recent and she's trying to start over.  Luckily for her, she's helping out a friend and meets Tag.  (OMG, Hottie McHotterson! Yes, please!) He's a down to earth, laid back, easy going guy.  He doesn't make a big deal as to who he is and in fact, doesn't want Rachel to know that about him when he first meets her.  Their story is sweet, endearing and sexy!  I couldn't put it down and loved Tag's swooniness.  It was sweet seeing their story unfold and he was the perfect guy for Rachel!  I highly recommend this book! 


1. Can you give us a little insight into Rachel and Tag and what you think are their best qualities?
Oh, I love this question!

Rachel is careful. She’s untrusting thanks to a lying, conniving ex-boyfriend, and, thanks to an outburst at work to confront him, finds herself out of her marketing job and working as a fulltime bartender/part-time pet sitter. Her best quality has to be her friendship. Rachel is a friend you’d want to have—she’s there for you, and she’s incredibly loyal which is why her ex’s manipulation hurt her so deeply.

Tag’s best quality is his laid-back, supportive persona. He comes off as this playful, fun-loving type, which he is, but he’s also a hard worker and knows better than to take himself too seriously. When Rachel and Tag get together, her loyalty and his ability to let her shine combine for some hot fireworks.

2. What was the most challenging part of writing THE BILLIONAIRE NEXT DOOR?
Letting Rachel say NO to Tag! I mean the guy is a drop-dead gorgeous billionaire who wants to provide anything and everything for Rachel. Who wouldn’t want to be pampered?! Rachel is working hard not to rely on a man, so she continues turning down his money and his offers. He does get her to comply, (finally!). Rachel deserves to be treated well, so it was fun to write the scenes where she lets go—both in the bedroom and out. *saucy wink*

3. Where can readers find out more about your books and news on what's coming soon? 
The best place to learn about my books is my website (www.jessicalemmon.com). I keep it updated with fun banners, behind the scenes posts and photos, and occasionally do a blog giveaway. My monthly newsletter is also lots of fun. You can see a sample newsletter here here and you can sign up for the monthly inbox treat here.

4. What was your favorite part of the book?
When Tag points out that he knows Rachel is staring at him. He interrupts their discussion with a “Like what you see?” then says my favorite line EVER. “Touch me.” (Le swoon!)

5. Who was your favorite character to write?
Tag Crane! He was constantly blurting out things I had no idea he’d say, and he was this interesting mix of brash and cocky, playful and fun. He was also adorably clueless at times—ladies, you know what I’m talking about here. You can’t help but like him, and fall for him. Rachel never stood a chance.

6. Who inspired the characters in this book?
Tag: Brock O’Hurn – if you don’t know him, get to know him. YUM.

Rachel: A mix of a few photos. She was more in my head. You can check out the Pinterest board that inspired my book by clicking here.

7. What do you hope readers will take away from reading THE BILLIONAIRE NEXT DOOR?
Laughs and Luxury. Readers can indulge in a much-needed break since this book is the ultimate fantasy: a billionaire bad boy for a date to Hawaii! Early reviewers rave that THE BILLIONAIRE NEXT DOOR is “hilarious” and “laugh out loud funny” which is so awesome to hear. I laughed a lot while I wrote the dialog.
