From New York Times bestselling author
Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
At first,
my neighbor Deacon frustrated me.
Sure, he
was great-looking and friendly.
But our
walls were thin, and on occasion, he’d bring women to his place and keep me
awake while he “entertained” them.
As a single
mother to an infant, I didn’t appreciate it.
So, finally
it was my turn.
When my
daughter wouldn’t stop wailing one night, Mr. Manwhore came knocking on my

at the sound of his voice, Sunny stopped crying. And when he held her…she
eventually fell asleep in his arms.
Deacon was
rough on the exterior, but apparently on the inside? Mr.
Single-and-Ready-to-Mingle was a baby whisperer.
After that
night, we became friends.
He’d go for
coffee runs. Come over to chat. Normal friend stuff.
But over
time, our conversations ran deeper. We got closer.
Until one
night we crossed the line.
friendship turned into a complicated mess.
I’d gone
and fallen for a guy who’d sworn off commitment and kids.
I knew
Deacon was starting to care for me too, even though Sunny and I didn’t fit into
any plan he’d ever imagined for himself.
He was
wrong for me—so wrong that I’d dubbed him the “anti-boyfriend.”
Then why
did I wish more than anything that I could be the one woman to change him?


Amber’s Review

Charming, entertaining and heart warming are all words I’d use to describe The Anti-Boyfriend by Penelope Ward. This one is the perfect type of book – one that offers a means of escape.

In The Anti-Boyfriend, you have single mom Carys and her daughter Sunny living next door to the manwhore single sexy Deacon. When Deacon’s late night antics keep both Carys and baby Sunny from sleep, she confronts him; and that leads to a bright new friendship.

And as always, the friendship leads to more…even though The Anti-Boyfriend has undoubtedly decided that he is not boyfriend material and tries to refrain from letting the relationship evolve into more.

This book is relatable which is one of the main reason why I liked the story. You all should give it a try
