Asher 'Ghost' Collins and Natalie Kovac shared a passionate night together. One neither of them can forget.
So why is it so hard for them to be around each other?
With no hope of the two getting along they decide to go their separate ways. And somehow end up closer than they've ever been.
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!
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!
