Summary

A stand-alone novel that does not need to be heard in conjunction with any other book. From New York Times best-selling 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 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 stand-alone novel. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

very thorough story

Really well paced and encompassing story, like the heart defect touch, it nice to have drama in a story that doesn't focus on misunderstanding as so many do.
I really felt like the story concluded well

Fun Story, Hot and Sweet!

I enjoyed this book. I love that the story had a lot of true love and hot sex. The relationship between them is sweet and the drama only a little high. The ending was perfect. The narration was good too!

My Heart Only Beats For You......

My first Penelope Ward and it won't be my last. I really liked this taking chances and falling in love story, and how Ward uses real scary life concerns to builds the angst that easily has the listener (or reader) emotionally invested in the characters. There were only two things that dropped this story from a five to four stars.

First, I enjoyed the story especially the friendship that developed between Damien and Chelsea which was heartwarming, he really cared for Chelsea and you could feel it. When the finally moved past his insecurities and fears, and started a relationship, you could feel the love between them; however, some of the sex scenes came across as awkward. Maybe it was because these scenes were suppose to depict a "dirtier" side to the couple, but the love and tenderness they have for each other just didn't fit the couple who would almost have public sex or with their family in the next room.

The other, the story did drag in parts and I was ready to push fast forward but chose to adjust the speed to 1.5x instead. It may be me, but when stories are mainly told from one POV, the mental internal dialogue can become very repetitive.

I loved the dogs! Better know as the double "D's", they added that extra layer giving the story that unique almost believable aspect. The double D's helped Damien and Chelsea develop and strengthen the bond between them.

One of my favorite parts of the story was Damien's POV and the email he wrote to Chelsea's ex. It gave this touching love story a unique ending. Overall, a great story that will touch your heart. Well worth the time, and credit.

Samantha Cook did an amazing job with all the characters, and emotions.
