When Dillion Stitch left her hometown, she had no intention of going back. But when her brother gets into trouble, Dillion reluctantly agrees to return home to take her place at the family business.
Being back in Pearl Lake after all these years feels familiar, but also brings a few surprises. She’s quick to notice that someone new has shown up at the cottage next door. Dillion gets more than an eyeful when she goes to check out the newcomer and meets Donovan “Van” Firestone—her beloved neighbor’s grandson—in all his unclothed glory.
Having gotten off to a rocky start, it’s not long before they begin bickering with each other all over town. All that back and forth inevitably sparks an undeniable attraction. But Dillion’s family has issues, Van’s family resents him, and neither Dillion nor Van feels truly at ease in the small town. For these Pearl Lake exiles, home isn’t just where the heart is—it’s where things get complicated.
Sincere, sexy, and sophisticated!
Love Next Door is a heartfelt, adorable tale that features the sweet, spirited Dillion and the handsome, dependable Van as they navigate a relationship that includes undeniable attraction, smouldering tension, a legacy bursting with memories and mementoes, families mired in drama and troubles, and one unforgettable kiss from a long time ago.
The writing is smooth and fluid. The characters are generous, charismatic, and kind. And the plot is an irresistible mix of family, friendship, introspection, tender moments, witty dialogue, passion, emotion, and swoon-worthy romance.
Overall, Love Next Door is another emotional, playful, charming read by Hunting that has without a doubt become one of my new all-time favourites and is an absolutely brilliant start for this new Lakeside series.
