Right Next Door Synopsis:
My fiancé is officially a married man. The only problem is that he isn’t married to me. . .
Addison Peacock has been stuck in the same seaside town her entire life. When her college boyfriend proposes the night before graduation, she can finally see the future she’d always dreamt about. But the sudden illness of her father causes her to put that future on hold, and her soon-to-be husband leaves, with nothing but a promise that one day he’ll return.
Now, five years later, he’s kept that promise. There’s only one problem . . . he’s already married. Crushed twice by the same man, Addison needs a distraction, someone to get her back on her feet and mend her broken heart. As luck would have it, Damian Walker has just moved in next door.
Having rebuilt his own life after a drunk driver stole his career, his heart . . . everything, Damian knows what it’s going to take to get Addison’s life back on track. But he’s not going to be anyone’s rebound. His life is complicated . . . there’s no room for one-night stands. Until Addison knows what she’s looking for, neighbors are all they’ll ever be.
One shared wall, two sun-kissed balconies, and a chance at love…a twist of fate. Could the possibility of a future be right next door?
Whitney’s Four Star Review
This is my first AJ Pryor novel and I found her writing style refreshing. She hooked me from the first chapter with Addison! Though suffering emotionally due to some bad breaks from life, she is witty and strong. Her character development may be what kept me turning the pages initially but Damian… that man is what really sold me on this story.
Damian is kind of perfect. He’s dreamy, loves his family and he isn’t into casual sex. Nope, he is Mr. Monogamy. And from the minute he meets Addison, he knows he wants her and they’d be perfect together. Unfortunately, it takes Addison a long time to get on board with the relationship part though she’s happy to jump his bones a time or two.
Telling the story from a dual POV was necessary as I needed to see what Damian was going through emotionally as well. There is definite steam, enough to make you want to fan yourself but at it’s heart this book is a lovely story of two people who just happen to find their soul mate… right next door!
This was a five star book until the last half of the book when I wasn’t wild about a few things in the storyline involving both main characters. But luckily, the end saved it for me (though maybe a little too perfect) and I finished the book smiling and very glad I found this new author. I laughed out loud, I teared up once or twice and overall, this was just a light and great addition to my Kindle library. Definitely recommended!
