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.

Neighbor Dearest is LIVE and on limited-time release sale for $3.99 (Changing to $4.99 after release. This will be the ONLY sale.) A sexy STANDALONE friends-to-lovers story that does NOT have to be read in conjunction with any other book.



Angst, one thing I can rely on Penelope Ward to give me. And boy did she give me a lot of it with Neighbor Dearest. Damien, this man. Gah! I was torn in the beginning, I felt like I wanted to hate him. Brooding, cocky, arrogant man that he was. But through the course of this story I quickly fell in love and I’m not looking back. This story was perfection. The angst, the sexual tension, the secrets, all of them made for a fantastic story. I devoured this book. Stalked Amazon all day waiting for it to go Live. You will not be disappointed. Neighbor Dearest is now ranked my #1 Penelope Ward book. So many feels. Warm and fuzzy, sad and heartbreaking. Hold on to your seats, this book will take you on an emotional ride of your life. I just hope you love it as much as I did.
