KISSING THE MAN NEXT DOOR
KISSING THE MAN NEXT DOOR (2) by Devon Vaughn Archer: Ian Kelly and his dog Otis move next door to Mackenzie Reese, whose teenage son has moved to Los Angeles to live with his father and stepmother. Ian, who doesn't have children and doesn't date women with children, pursues a relationship with Mackenzie because of similar interests; he's a DJ at a jazz station and she's a jazz singer. Ian forgets about her son, but when he moves back home, complete with nasty attitude, making demands and forcing Mackenzie to choose between him and Ian, the couple faces the end of their relationship. The characters remain one-dimensional throughout, so there's no reason to care about whether or not they work out their problems.
