Neighbor Dearest by Penelope Ward

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.



I really enjoying the beginning... the funny banter and sexual innuendo.
Damien is gorgeous, friendly, flirty, crazy protective... but unattainable.

Their relationship and how they meshed was great.
I was totally loving it.
Moments had me both laughing and tearing up.

Of course nothing is perfect and I tried figuring out just what was going to happen.
I had an inkling of the possible plot twist and I was kinda right. Yay me!

I do feel like somewhere after the 50% mark Damien changed a bit for me. Can't put my finger on it.
Don't get me wrong, I still really enjoyed it... but I found myself hurrying along towards the end.

"Change the story."

I did so love the ending!
It was sweet and perfect and everything was how it should be!
