A STANDALONE NOVEL that does NOT need to be read in conjunction with any other book.
From New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward, comes a friends-to-lovers story with sexy new characters.
After getting dumped, the last thing I needed was to move next door to someone who reminded me of my ex-boyfriend, Elec.
Damien was a hotter version of my ex.
The neighbor I’d dubbed “Angry Artist” also had two massive dogs that kept me up with their barking.
He wanted nothing to do with me. Or so I thought until one night I heard laughter coming through an apparent hole in my bedroom wall.
Damien had been listening to all of my phone sessions with my therapist.
The sexy artist next door now knew all of my deepest secrets and insecurities.
We got to talking.
He set me straight with tips to get over my breakup.
He became a good friend, but Damien made it clear that he couldn’t be anything more.
Problem was, I was falling hard for him anyway. And as much as he pushed me away, I knew he felt the same…because his heartbeat didn’t lie.
I thought my heart had been broken by Elec, but it was alive and beating harder than ever for Damien.
I just hoped he wouldn’t shatter it for good.
Author's note – Neighbor Dearest is a full-length standalone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
This was a great sequel to Step Brother Dearest wish there was a third book about Jade from Roomhates but oh well
Oh so good
This is a definite emotional roller coaster. The first half of the book my heart ached for Chelsea. I almost didn't finish the book because so much time had passed that I couldn't fathom the HEA. Damien is so adamant against a relationship. But, of course I continued on and when it is revealed why Damien is not committing to Chelsea my heart cracked. I did not see that coming.
The rest of the book continues on the roller coaster as Damien and Chelsea work through their ups and downs. I held my breath for several chapters until the HEA.
I didn’t think I would ever like a book as much as I liked Stepbrother Dearest, but here it is. I love how Penelope starts a romance and fully finishes it with an idea of the rest of their lives. It made me cry many times and I look forward to another book of hers.
