Review - Right Next Door by A.J. Pryor

Title: Right Next Door 
Author: A.J. Pryor
Release Date: June 30, 2015

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?

Addison has been carrying a torch for her first love for five years. When he unexpectedly stumbles back into her life, she thinks all her dreams are coming true. It doesn’t take her long to discover that he’s actually a douchebag. A married douchebag. A married douchebag who just slept with the ex-girlfriend who’s been carrying him in her heart for five years. 

Enter Damian Walker. Damian just moved in next door to Addison and after literally falling at his feet during a run, the two strike up a flirty, fun friendship. Damian has scars and secrets from his own past, but the two find something in each other that is worth fighting for. 

The relationship these two have is the perfect blend of sweet and hot. There’s a ton of physical chemistry – Damian is a dirty talking sex fiend, and Addison has a crazy, sexy, naughty streak. The sex is hot, don’t get me wrong, but the most rewarding moments are the tender ones. Addison and Damian do tender just right.

I began this story thinking that I wasn’t going to like Addison very much. I was afraid she was going to be one of those whiny, weak-willed heroines. She pleasantly surprised me when she turned out to be, well, pretty awesome. She did a lot of growing in this book; she’s damaged and insecure, but communicative and reasonable and dealing with her issues. She was strong and I liked her a lot. 

There is so much going on in this story and it’s a complete emotional rollercoaster. Both Addison and Damian broke my heart at different points of this book, but in the end this was a sweet, emotional, sexy read with a gratifying and rewarding happily ever after. 
~ Review by Shelly

A.J. Pryor lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two daughters. After reading a book a day for close to three years she decided to give writing a shot. One year and many how-to books later, Wall of Trust was born.

If not writing, you can find her at the soccer field with her girls, the beach, or the yoga studio. An avid reader of adult, young adult, and new adult novels, her Kindle is never more than an arm's length away. 

She is addicted to the one-click button on Amazon and currently has over thirty unread romance novels on her Kindle. They will all get read eventually. She is the championship Backgammon player in her family and will hold onto that title for as long as she can
