The boy next door. That’s what he was. Dash Frasier—my hero from the day we met, when I was six and he was nine. His sister was my best friend, the three of us one happy crew. Then one sweaty summer night changed everything.
No one understood me like Dash. No one made me feel so loved. That’s why, when he skipped town, it wrecked me.
Now I’m older. Wiser. I’ve just snagged my dream job, writing at a film studio. The lead animator on my project? You guessed it.
He’s not the boy next door. Not anymore.
I’m guarding my heart this time.
But Dash has secrets that could break us both.

Curb Appeal: I love this cover and it is definite eye candy! The blurb gives a good background on the situation but leaves everything else a surprise!
Ultimately: I really enjoyed this novel! I wasn’t expecting the twists and turns and how much I enjoyed these characters. Dash was really sweet in his own way and Amelia was strong forgiving heroine. All in all, if you are in the mood for a second chance romance that pulls you in and doesn’t let you go then come check out The Boy Next Door!!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
