The Anti-Boyfriend by Penelope Ward
Genre: contemporary romance
Publisher: Penelope Ward Books, Inc.
Publication Date: August 29, 2020
Rating: ★★★★✰

The introduction to Carys and Deacon was hilarious. I mean hearing his “activities” through the wall and having to confront him about it. How embarrassing, but they both handled it well. I loved the chemistry and banter between Deacon and Carys. Not too mention Decan being the sweetest and most caring to Carys’ daughter Sunny. Sunny is a special needs baby and reading Deacon’s love and care for her was definitely a hit to the heart.

Deacon had his issues and did not deal with them well. I felt that Deacon’s issues were dragged out a little long, but that is my only complaint. Not a whole lot of drama and not super angsty, but for sure a good, and must read.

4 Stars!

the anti-boyfriend

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 door.

Miraculously, 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.

Our 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?
