Over the Fence
Author: Melanie Moreland
Release Date: August 4th, 2015
New Adult, Romance


Synopsis:
Two
neighbors—strangers—with one thing in common—they share a fence.
But
is that the only thing they share?

Nathan
Fraser lives a solitary life, never letting anyone get too close. It’s safer
that way.
Kourtney
Whyte hides from the world and behind her work, too afraid to really live her
life to the fullest. Rejection is what she knows best.

But
one night, the sound of her soft voice and the tantalizing aroma of her evening
meal, prove too enticing for Nathan to ignore.

So
begins their unconventional relationship—talking, learning, texting, and
gradually opening up to one another, all over the fence.

That
is, until the day Nathan braves the high fence to protect Kourtney from her
past, and changes everything forever.

Can
they move forward together, without the buffer of the fence?

Or
will their pasts prove to be too much of a barrier?
Amber’s
Review:
I received
an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I’ve
been a fan of Melanie’s for quite some time. 
Eager to jump and pick up her latest release – this new release will not
disappoint.
Over
the Fence is a story about opening yourself up to the possibility of
friendship; of happiness in the face of disappointment.  Both main characters, Nathan and Kourtney –
neighbors whose yards are separated by a really tall fence – have both had a
rough time with life thus far.  Both
characters are damaged in their own way. 
But over the course of the story, they each open up to each other and
become reliant to some degree on the other. 
Kourtney
“Chef Girl” begins to feed Nathan – who has his own theory on the purpose of
the stove in one’s kitchen.  Nathan
“Gnat” assists Kourtney, who is not the most proficient in the digital age,
embrace the use of the cell phone and improvements to her laptop.  What started off as an easy exchange between
the two neighbors ultimately grows and leads to a life long relationship that
neither one realized they were in need of initially.

I
love Melanie’s writing style and her character development.  Her use of the text dialog at the end of the
story lends itself nicely to wrap up all lose ends and shed light on the future
of these characters we’ve ultimately grown to love through the duration of the
story.
