Review: Ripple Effect by J Bengtsson

She’s living next door to a superstar… and doesn’t even know it.

Enemies to lovers tale with an earth-shaking twist!

International pop star RJ Contreras finds himself at a crossroads when his mega famous boy band, AnyDayNow, breaks up. After his solo career fails to take off, RJ (a.k.a. Chad Woodcock) retreats to a no-frills apartment where he can hide out from the world and lick his festering wounds.

But when the girl next door starts slipping ‘good neighbor’ contracts under his door and complaining about his behavior through strategically placed Post-it-Notes, RJ snaps out of his self-absorbed melancholy to wage war.

Nothing short of an act of nature could repair the relationship between these two strong-willed enemies. But guess what Fate has in store?


I love a good enemies-to-lovers but this book is so much more. It’s pretty much impossible to talk about this story without being a spoiler but I guarantee you are not expecting this at all. The story takes a wild turn pretty early and things just get crazier from there but I was riveted. This is a book you won’t want to put down because you hang on every word. It’s equal parts sweet and funny but there are some heavy topics in there, too. This one is a crazy emotional rollercoaster so prepare yourself.

Dani and RJ are amazing characters that drew me in. I liked both immediately because the depth and complexity in their personalities is obvious when you meet them. They didn’t always do what I expected but this story surprised me at every turn and I loved each one. You will laugh and cry and bite your nails but you’ll be so glad you read it. This is my first book by the author but I’ll be picking up some others right away because I loved everything about this book. I received an ARC from Grey’s Promotions in exchange for an honest review.
