Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Kristina Forest!



Hi! I’m Kristina Forest and I write contemporary romance novels with heart and humor, like my upcoming novel, THE NEIGHBOR FAVOR, about Lily, a shy bookworm, who enlists her charming neighbor, Nick, to help her score a date to her sister’s wedding, not knowing he’s the obscure fantasy author she’s been corresponding with online.



I’m a born and raised Jersey girl and I love the east coast. I love to read (not surprising), bake (mostly cakes and pies) and last year, I finally taught myself how to cook. I’m a Capricorn sun and Capricorn rising, which means I’m either extremely type A or just very pragmatic, depending on your perspective. I’m a Beyoncé stan and spend way too much time wondering when she’s going to drop the Renaissance visuals. I genuinely believe in soulmates.


I’m looking for readers who enjoy:

  • Mistaken identity
  • Forced proximity
  • Close knit sisters
  • Character who are book lovers
  • A NYC setting
  • Epistolary plots


What to expect if we're compatible:

  • HEAs always!
  • Feel good humor
  • Career women trying to live their lives and fall in love
  • A fun cast of secondary characters

THE NEIGHBOR FAVOR by Kristina Forest

The Neighbor Favor

A shy bookworm enlists her charming neighbor to help her score a date, not knowing he’s the obscure author she’s been corresponding with, in this sparkling and heart-fluttering romance by Kristina Forest.

Shy, bookish, and admittedly awkward, Lily Greene has always felt inadequate compared to the rest of her accomplished family, who strive for Black excellence. She dreams of becoming a children’s books editor, but she’s been frustratingly stuck in the nonfiction division for years without a promotion in sight. Lily finds escapism in her correspondences with her favorite fantasy author, and what begins as two lonely people connecting over email turns into a tentative friendship and possibly something else Lily won’t let herself entertain—until he ghosts her without a word.

Months later, Lily is still crushed, but she’s determined to get a hold of her life, starting with finding a date to her sister’s wedding. And the perfect person to help her is Nick Brown, her charming, attractive new neighbor, who she feels drawn to for reasons she can’t explain. But little does she know, Nick is an author—her favorite fantasy author.

Nick, who has his reasons for using a pen name and pushing people away, soon realizes that the beautiful, quiet girl from down the hall is the same Lily he fell in love with over email months ago. Unwilling to complicate things even more between them, he agrees to set her up with someone else, though this simple favor between two neighbors is anything but—not when he can't get her off his mind...
