Will friendship ever be enough for the pair?

We were introduced to Ghost and Natalie in Friend-Zoned.  I was beyond excited reading Friend-Zoned because I feel love with every single character!

But Ghost?

See I just knew his story would be a good one and I was really hoping we would get his next!  And what a story it was.

Belle Aurora wrote Love Thy Neighbour in the same way she wrote Friend-Zoned and I loved every single word of it.  She’s got a great writing voice and her characters feel like they can just walk off the page and into your life seamlessly.  In Friend-Zoned we were introduced to this group of men and women who come together by chance because of the budding relationship between Nik and Tina.  I really loved those two and I was so happy to see more of them in Love Thy Neighbour.  I didn’t really have someone in mind when I thought of Tina however, I always picture Maksim Chmerkovskiy as Nik.

But I digress…this is about Ghost and Natalie!

This girl. She’s my girl. She’s not perfect. Neither am I. But she’s perfect for me, and I’ll do anything I can to keep her.

Ghost is one of those guys with impenetrable armor.  He has a past that no one should ever have and those demons keep him locked up like Ft. Knox.  In comes Natalie and she’s a force to be reckoned with.  She’s beautiful, funny, and very strong willed.

Together they are perfect.

As it is in life, nothing is ever easy.  There are several obstacles these two must over come.  With every situation you’ll find yourself smiling.  You’ll even laugh out loud a few times.  And the sex….holy cow is this book hot!!!  My Kindle screen steamed up several times!

Ghost aka Asher is still probably my favorite of all the characters.  There’s just something about him that makes you want to love him.

The story could have been much deeper with lots more angst but that would have taken the light, fun tone of Belle Aurora’s books.  In my opinion these are stories to be enjoyed and not necessarily critiqued at every turn.  They are serious but fun.

Tina leans forward and asks quietly, ‘Do you? You know? Love her?’
Squeezing Nat’s knee again, I reply, ‘She’s teachin’ me how.

Can’t wait for the next installment of this series!  I hope it’s Max’s turn at love next time!

About Belle Aurora

Belle Aurora is twenty seven years old and was born in the land down
under. 
At an early age she fell in love with reading. Boredom one summer had her
scouring the bookshelves at home. She stumbled across Sandra Brown’s Breath of
Scandal and fell in love with romance. 

Having been brought up in a loud and
boisterous family of Croatian descent, she developed a natural love for
dramatics and humor. Only some years ago had she discovered a new love. 

Humorous romance novels. 

Kristen Ashley and R.L. Mathewson had opened a brand
new world where she could lose herself yet feel safe and at home in their
stories. Belle has been known to become a screeching banshee while anxiously
awaiting their newest titles. 

Belle never thought she would write. It had never
interested her until recently. Friend-Zoned began to form and in February 2013
Belle typed the words Chapter One. And she fell in love. 

With words. 

With writing. 

With a creative imagination she never knew she harbored.

Friend-Zoned is the
first in the Friend-Zoned series. Keep an eye out for this cheeky author.
