Publisher's Summary

A sexy and emotional Amazon Top 10 best seller from Ella James, USA Today best-selling author   

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.

Have tissues on hand.

The tears didn’t do more than brim my eyes through most of the story but near the end they broke over. EJ did a really good job of making me wonder ??? What was he hiding? Could it be that bad, he seemed to love her so much? At one point I thought I had it, I was so sure and was trying to guess how’d she’d react. But I was wrong. My poor little heart broke for both of them when he gave her his shame. I loved that EJ gave them a bird theme it was cute and sweetened things. His nickname for her and them always sitting on the roof. I read this right after Crowns Jewels so this is now my second EJ book and so far I like her style. It’s not what I would consider dark but it’s not fluffy clouds and fairy tales. It’s got more of a yeah I think this could be a true story vibe. JFH & AV also did great work on the audio they sounded great together.

TRULY A GREAT STORY!!!

Wow, I truly loved this book. It was my first with J.F. Harding narrating and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked his voice. Both narrators did an excellent job. The story was different and the truth about his past was something I didn't see coming.

The Boy Next Door

Goodness this was a beautifully sweet, heartfelt, but at the same time heart breaking story. I absolutely adored every single second of this book.
JF Harding and Aubrey Vincent are Fantastic narrators, they brought all the emotion, passion, and love to life. I loved it!

Excellent

This book was so much better than the first one in this series. Dash was such a sweet guy and the secret he cared was so heart wrenching. Ammy was such a strong female character although I thought she might have given in a little bit fast after they met back up years later. The ending of this book was great and I'm glad they got their HEA after all the stuff they went through.

Better than the first

Dash and Emilia have always been secretly in love with each other but Dash is the older brother to Em's best friend, kind of typical. But the actual story of the two of them is a little heartbreakingly beautiful (sounds a little corny) but true. Em liked Dash from the first time he saved her from drowning, she was 7 and he was 10. The became neighbors and friends. Dash breaks Em's heart when he goes away to college because he doesn't stay in contact with her. When he comes home on break they spend the night together just before her 16th birthday and he promised to stay a few more days to be with her, but he suddenly leaves with no word, this would make heartbreak #2. They come across each other again because Em becomes an intern unknowingly at a company he works at. What Emilia doesn't know is the secret Dash has been keeping from her, the real reason he has stayed away, she will find out and it will all make sense and you'll fall in love with Dash.

Not your typical boy next door.

What a tragically beautiful love story. Its heart breaking at times and definitely has the ability to cause intense emotional reaction. I loved the main characters and it was easy to share in their emotional turmoil and enjoy their love story. The narrators did an amazing job telling the story. I highly recommend this story.

I Cried... a lot

Omg, this was even better than Crown Jewels! I love love love the saga that was Ammy and Dash. I wouldn't to murder some one who shall not be named, but I loved how we got our ultimate happy ending. Also really happy to see a glimpse of Liam and Lucy at the end! On to the next one!

Disappointed

Not what I expected. The storyline kinda suck and the performance was mediocre. Only finished it because.
