synopsis

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.

Release Date: June 9, 2014

goodreads-badge-add-plus-d700d4d3e3c0b346066731ac07b7fe47

Synopsis

Events happen in life that can awaken our truest and deepest desires. They also show us our greatest fears. Sometimes we are forced to face those fears, other times we build walls that can’t be broken to protect ourselves.

A profound connection these two once shared. A strong friendship once formed was shattered. Fate has stepped in and shaken both their worlds.

The danger, the wild, the chaos, and the lifestyle of the Hellions world has become far too much for Savannah ‘Sass’ Perchton. Swearing off bikers and attempting a ‘normal’ life, she has settled. She’s committed to Nick, her country club, pretty boy. She’s found a way to be content.

Things aren’t always what they seem. Wrap an empty box in pretty paper and a bow, it may look amazing, but it’s still a hollow shell.

He’s a Hellions playboy. A different chick in his bed, off on a different ride, and always something new. He’s Frank the ‘Tank’ Oleander, Haywood’s Hellions Road Chief. Throttle down and life is good.

The fast pace of the Hellions life catches up to him. At a crossroads, he’s forced to face some life changing thoughts or succumb to the darkness of death. Teetering on the brink of giving in, her voice is all he’s holding onto. The coma he can’t pull himself out of, but her voice is the light in the darkness. He wants the girl who pulled him through when his life was literally in the balance.

She’s sworn off bikers. Can he pull through? Can she ever see past the lifestyle to the heart of the man behind the cut? Will they find their Forever Ride?

Ashley’s Review 4.5 Stars!

Savannah ‘Sass’ Perchton is a Hellions MC princess. With everything that happened to her and her best friend, Delilah ‘Doll’ Reklinger, she has decided that she is done with the MC lifestyle. She thinks that she isn’t strong enough to deal with everything that comes with being with a Hellion, so she tries a “normal” relationship with Nick.

Frank the “Tank” Oleander is known in the MC as a lady’s man. He isn’t what he thinks is ‘relationship material’ so he always has a new bar fly in his bed. Tank serves as Road Chief to the Hellions transport business and always helps his brothers whenever he can, even if it means putting himself in danger. Helping protect his brothers, Tank ends up in the cross hairs and in a coma fighting for his life.

Sass is the only one that keeps Tank fighting in his coma to wake up. Giving up everything related to the MC to please Nick, she has to give up waiting for Tank to wake up and move on with her life. While in the coma, we get flashbacks of Tank’s life and how he became to be a Hellion. We learn about how he wasn’t dealt a good hand in life, but he wants more than anything to help and support his family with the help of Roundman, the Hellions President.

“Life may hand you a shit deal in the cards, but you have to show that motherfucker no one controls you. Rise above it, boy. Make something of yourself, your mom and your sisters.”

While trying to leave her life behind and please Nick, Sass completely loses herself. She starts going by her real name, Savannah, which she has never done before. She changes her job, appearance, and even mannerisms to keep Nick happy and to have a normal relationship and life. Is that the life that is really best for Sass though?

“The more I look around, the more I take in the loss of me.”

I have to say, this was not your normal MC book. It was more of a love story with a side of bikers. I wish that more of Sass and Tank’s story from before his coma had been touched on so that I could have connected with their relationship more. It almost just seemed as though they were fighting to be together, but it’s hard to say why since they had only slept together once in the first book in the series. Also, there was no hot sex in this book, like at all, which shocked me. I gave this 4 out of 5 stars. I just wish the story wasn’t so gloomy. Continue reading

Delilah “Doll” Reklinger never imagined her life with anyone that wasn’t a Hellion. She never imagined there would be a Hellion that could prove himself worthy enough to her father, Roundman, Hellions Club President. Content in living in the bubble of safety the motorcycle club family has always provided, Doll never thought that danger surrounded her.

Roundman has kept the Hellions contained for the last thirty years by controlling the chaos surrounding their lifestyle. When the dangerous side to their business comes knocking on his door, he realizes his precious Doll isn’t safe. The Hellions code may be that women and children are off limits in any altercation or dispute, but that doesn’t mean their enemies follow that same moral compass.

His only child, now in danger from the association to him and his club, Roundman makes a decision. He sends her away with a charter club member that he trusts, in hopes that the trouble won’t follow.

One ride across the country. One simple ride.

Talon “Tripp” Crews has been ordered to take Doll on one ride away and to keep her safe. She’s off limits. His head knows this, but his body can’t deny the attraction. She’s feisty, fierce, and fearless.

Constantly in close confines together, can they deny the chemistry? Will they give into the desire? Can one ride turn lust into love?

 

One Ride Teaser Ashley’s Review 4 Stars!

Delilah “Doll” Reklinger is the princess of the Haywood’s Hellions MC. Her father, Roundman, is not only the President but also one of the founders of the club. Doll cannot imagine a life outside of the MC, and doesn’t see herself with anyone other than a Hellion. Because she has spent her entire life with the MC, she knows the rules and accepts them without trying to interfere with what goes on behind closed doors. She can only hope that there is a Hellion that can sweep her off her feet and be her everything. This is hard with an extremely overly protective father and members of the MC.

“I’m the kid sister that each of these badass bikers look out for. They will gladly kick your ass all because you simply looked at me. I’m a daughter to each and every ol’ lady to nurture, love and to treat like one of their own. This is my world, my home, my happiness.”

Talon “Tripp” Crews loves the lifestyle of a biker. He is the President of the Piedomont chapter of the Hellions MC. With all the responsibilities that he has, he does not believe that he can ever settle down and create a family. Tripp has lead a tough life growing up, but Roundman talked with both him and his cousin, Rex, and the MC helped them get their acts together.

After first seeing Doll, Tripp is in pure lust. “She’s one of a kind, that’s for sure. You shelter and protect a beauty like her. She’s the kind you treat like a fragile china doll; wrap it up and store on a shelf for safe keeping.” But he knows that she is severely off-limits, so he squashes any ideas he might have had about her before knowing she was Roundman’s daughter.

When some of their transport business turn sour, the MC becomes in danger, but the focus is mainly on Doll. In order to keep her safe, Roundman decides to send both her and her best friend, Savannah “Sass”, on a cross-country road trip. Both Tripp and his cousin Rex have been ordered to keep both girls safe from harm.The more time both Doll and Tripp spend together, the more their attraction grows. Will they be able to resist each other? This one ride will be a test for both of them.

I really enjoyed this book. Being the first in the series, the character development was awesome. There were some parts that were a little to descriptive for me, but all in all a really good read and I cannot wait until the next book in the series. This is definitely 4 out of 5 stars.
