Review: Just Neigbors by Charity Ferrell

just neighborsTitle: Just Neighbors

Author: Charity Ferrell

Year of publication: New release! The author kindly gave me a copy to read and review.

The heroine: Journalist/newspaper editor Chloe Fieldgain

The hero: Cop Kyle Lane

The blurb: Every day, my neighbor tells me to have a good morning. Every day, I tell him to f*ck off.

Kyle Lane is the town’s hottest cop. He’s also the man I’ve despised since high school. Each morning, he stands on his porch with an annoying smirk on his perfect face. He’s made it his life’s mission to get under my skin.

Until one day, he’s no longer on his porch but on mine. He claims he wants to redeem himself for ruining my reputation. My instincts tell me to stay away, but with each morning he shows up, it becomes harder and harder to resist his charm.

I was never supposed to fall in love with my neighbor and once he finds out my secret, we’ll forever be enemies.

Standalone or series: This is book four in the Blue Beech series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: This book wrenched so many emotions from me that it’s hard to know how to write a review for it: it made me laugh, cry, and cheer. Chloe and Kyle have known each other from high school, and after humiliating her in public Chloe vows to never fall for Kyle’s charms again. Which is inconvenient, seeing as he lives next door.

But Chloe has other things to be worrying about than Kyle’s relentless plan to get her into bed: her dropkick sister continues to use Chloe’s niece and nephew as leverage for money and free babysitting. She’s worried about the children, with good reason. She also doesn’t want to get involved with Kyle for a very good reason: she’s hiding something that would have him walking out the door if he found out.

Despite her reluctance to get involved with Kyle, Chloe finds herself unable to continue resisting him and she falls into a relationship with him. She’s terrified he’ll find out the secret, but she can’t tell him because it’s not hers to tell. When Chloe finally gets a shot at happiness with Kyle, it all implodes when not only the secret comes out, but then something terrible happens that rips Chloe’s life apart. Will Kyle forgive her and be by her side to pick up the pieces, or is Chloe doomed to never find happiness again? This is a book that will stay with you for a long time.
