Series: Everything’s Better #3

Author: Lucy Eden
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 25, 2019
When I first noticed Lisa Betancourt, she threatened me with
a baseball bat.
To be fair, I deserved it. 
But none of that mattered when I found out I had a baby
brother—a brother who is now left to my care. Too bad I don’t know the first
thing about parenting. If I have any hope of not ruining this poor kid’s life,
I need Lisa’s help. She quickly becomes my salvation, my heart. And even though
our timing is all wrong, I can’t help but wonder how I can convince her to stay
with me—with us—forever. 
Cole Simmons is just my insensitive jerk of a neighbor.
Or, that’s all he used to be. 
Now he’s in completely over his head, taking care of an
adorable child that I’m getting way too attached to way too
fast. And the scary part? I’m starting to get attached to Cole, too. After my
nasty divorce, I was sure I’d never risk falling in love
again—but Cole has me questioning my resolve at every turn. Frankly, I’m
starting to wonder if Cole isn’t the only one who is in completely over his
Neither of them was looking for love or a ready-made family.
But what will they do when they realize they’ve stumbled head-long into both?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

I’m a sucker for a cute neighbor romance, so Cole and Lisa are my jam. Add in a baby to stir things up, and reading Everything’s Better With Lisa was quite an enjoyable way to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon.

But this is not a fun-filled story. Cole and Lisa both have a troubled past, and lots of obstacles to overcome and demons to deal with. Lucy Eden does a great job in handling issues like drug use, adoption, infertility, cheating, etc very well in telling Cole and Lisa’s story. There is so much more to them than suddenly being the caregiver of the infant brother he never knew, relying on the bartender next door to be his nanny. It works, but there’s a lot OF work that they put into it first.

I have not read the previous books in the Everything’s Better series. While the characters from the previous books play a part, I felt like Lisa read just fine as a standalone. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.

“So, that happened.” I tucked my bottom lip between my teeth
and raised my eyebrows.

“It definitely did.” He rolled me on top of him so he could kiss me again. “Are
you having regrets?”

“Definitely not, but—”

“Is this where you tell me that even though we spent the last,” he checked his
watch, “fifteen minutes having the best sex I’ve ever had, during which I made
you come three,”

I held up four fingers, grinning,

“Oh, excuse me, four times. It was a bad decision and we should never do it


“Lisa, I’m probably going to lose my job tomorrow and CJ’s gonna wake up any
minute. Can we just enjoy this moment?”

A wide grin split my face. “The best sex you’ve ever had?”

“That’s what I said.”

“Okay,” I held his face in my hands and kissed him. “Let’s enjoy this moment.”
