After a video of Collins went viral – in a bad way. She had to leave L.A. and move back into her parents’ house. She’s not proud of living back at home, but it’s soothing her soul. That is until her ex-best friend and high school nemesis scares her while she’s watering the garden. She hasn’t talked to Nate in years, since he went away one summer and ghosted her. She accidentally sprays him with the hose and then after a smart aleck remark drenches him.

Nate’s not about to let her get away with that, though. He drops by later with an HOA complaint and fine. Unknowingly, he starts a war between the two of them. Fed up with him, Collins decides to crash the HOA meeting and unexpectedly announces that she’s running for HOA president against Nate.

Now that it’s no longer just a prank war, Collins enlists her new neighbor for help. Between the two of them, they create a campaign against Nate, one-upping him every chance they get. But Collins isn’t sure that she hates Nate, especially the way he fits into his khakis…

NEXT-DOOR NEMESIS is a second-chance love story that’s also enemies-to-lovers. Author Alexa Martin brings the expected moments of friendship, drama, humor, and spice! This is a sweet funny touching novel that readers will enjoy.

Two rival candidates for a homeowner’s association presidency are about to find out how dirty suburbanites fight in this steamy new romantic comedy from Alexa Martin.

After years of hustling, Collins Carter has finally made it...back to her parents’ house. Between tending to the compost with her newly retired dad and running into her high school nemesis at the only decent coffee shop in town, Collins realizes this subdivision from hell she swore she’d never return to is her rock bottom.

Then the homeowner’s association complaint arrived.

Nathaniel Adams always dreamed of a nice, quiet life in his suburban hometown. Or at least that’s what he thought until Collins moved back and sent his quaint, organized life into a tailspin. He thought Collins was infuriating ten years ago, but when she announces she’s running against him for HOA president, all bets are off.

From secret board meetings to vicious smear campaigns whispered over backyard fences, Collins and Nate sink to levels their sleepy suburb has never seen before. But as hate turns into lust, these two enemies are forced to reckon with the feelings they’ve ignored for years. If only there were bylaws for real life.
