Neighbor Dearest

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

You found the one!
Amazing novel!

A wild romance that I loved

"God made you for me." 

Just let those words resonate. That's really the whole meaning of this wild romance. Chelsea (Elec's Ex) hasn't had it easy. After losing her love to his stepsister. She's lost, even chooses therapy to get through. But what she didn't expect was Damien to appear out of nowhere. And the DD's who become a huge part of her life.

When one loses love, they tend to be on the fence of every experiencing it again. Damien and Chelsea go through so much through this story. It does span over a few years. It's not rushed, it's not an insta-romance on the spot. It builds, the character development is on another level. You somehow connect to these two souls on a deeper level. Ward, just creates these stories. Their like little packages, given to the reader. To enjoy and be immersed in their world. 

I was listening with anticipation. Wondering what was going to be around the corner with these two. It's just as steamy as the first in this series. And Damien is such a horn dog. And well Chelsea isn't far off. What else I like about how Ward writes these books. You don't get a glimpse into the male character, till the very end. It keeps the mystery there and you're in the same boat as the main POV. 

The narration was great and I loved the voice she gave all the characters, throughout this story.

Overall, I give this Five Boundless Stars. It's a wonderful story of blind faith and the love that lies right in the forefront. 

I need to know...

I saw this book before and I just wasn't convinced. Today I stumbled upon it on YouTube and decided to give it a listen. BEST DECISION EVER.! I got about 2 hours in and knew this was a book worth purchasing. Really great read. So thankful for YouTube suggestions.
