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.





*~*~ 5 Stars *~*~ 


I really enjoyed Stepbrother Dearest, but I absolutely loved, adored, and cherished Neighbor Dearest. I was consumed from page 1, and could not put this book down. I have a new book boyfriend and his name is Damien Hennessey!

When I first met Chelsea in Stepbrother Dearest, I immediately wanted her out of the picture obviously. But I never realized how much of a wonderful person she is. She won me over right from the start, and I was actually sad for her and everything she had been through. Chelsea is still recovering from the heartache Elec left behind, but she is doing her best. She has her therapy sessions and thinks it’s all going good until Damien and his pups come crashing into her life with more force than she could have ever imagined. Damien reminds her a bit of Elec, but can Chelsea open her heart again or did Elec ruin her forever?

Damien freaking Hennessey! Oh this man…. I loved him from the first moment he opened his mouth. I thought I loved Elec but no Damien puts him to shame. Damien and Chelsea have a few hiccups in the beginning, but soon become best friends. Damien has feelings for Chelsea, but isn’t open for a relationship or a happily ever after. But what happens when Damien finally finds his unicorn? Can he let go of his feelings or will Damien crush Chelsea’s heart yet again?

Oh this book! Ever read a book and you know right from the beginning you will read it over and over and over? This is that book! It’s everything wrapped into one… two heartbroken neighbors, to best friends, to lovers and so much more. Damien is pure perfection in everyway… “You were never able to understand how he could do what he did to you, why things happened that way. I figured it out. You know why it didn’t work out with him?” “Why?” “Because God made you for me.” Ahhhh my heart melted! This book is funny, sexy, and left me smiling so hard. I honestly can say this is by far my favorite book by Penelope and I can’t wait to see what’s next! Loved every minute!

Excerpt

Looking tense, he placed his hands slowly into his pockets as he looked at me. “What exactly happened last night?”
“What are you talking about?”
Nice try dodging the question.
He moved in closer to me. “What am I talking about? You leaving me with a giant fucking basket of muffins and running off before I could even say anything? Ring a bell?”
“I thought you’d be alone. It caught me off guard.”
His eyes softened. “You were upset…”
“No, I wasn’t.”
“You’re a terrible liar, Chelsea. Fucking horrible at it. You don’t hide your feelings very well.”
“You think you know just about everything there is to know about me, don’t you?”
“Not everything. But it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to read you. It’s one of the things I like about you, though. You’re one of the least fake people I’ve ever met.”
“Then, tell me. Why do you think I was upset?”
“Honestly? I think you’re confused about me.”
“Confused…”
“Yes. I think you’re wondering why I opted not to have dinner with you and instead ended up with a woman I’d literally just met, someone who isn’t as sweet as you and sure as fuck isn’t as pretty as you. So, you’re wondering what the hell I was thinking. Am I right?”
That’s exactly what I was thinking.
He continued, “I know we haven’t known each other for very long, but I do feel a connection with you, okay? If you’ve sensed something, you’re not imagining it.”
“Well, if I wasn’t confused before…now I definitely am.”
“I feel like I need to say this now, because I can’t stand the thought of you thinking that I somehow find you undesirable when it’s exactly the opposite.”
I crossed my arms. “Again. Not following you.”
He closed his eyes as if to try to find the right words. “It’s just that I know for sure that I can’t ever be what someone like you needs in a boyfriend, in a partner. It’s not that we wouldn’t have fun or be great together at first. I’m just not good for you in the long-term—not marriage material. And the reasons are too complex to get into, except to say that it has nothing to do with you and everything to do with me. I can’t, in good conscience, start something with a girl like you.”
“A girl like me…”
“Yes. You’re not the kind of girl a guy takes home for a quick fuck. You’re the girl he keeps.”
Right. Just like Elec did.
