The Woman Next Door by Helena Maeve

What’s a girl to do when her arch nemesis moves in next door?

After months of endless renovations, Ziva can’t take the racket anymore. Her commissions aren’t going to fulfill themselves and she’s nowhere near ready for her next exhibition. She is, however, more than able to give her new neighbors a piece of her mind—until she discovers that the people moving in next door aren’t new faces at all.

Yvonne Barros couldn’t be less of a stranger. Eight years ago, Ziva might even have said they were friends. That was before Yvonne destroyed her business and nearly drove her to bankruptcy. Almost a decade later and Ziva desperately wants to hate the woman who stole everything from her. Yet with every run-in, Yvonne proves to be a changed person, her sharper edges chiseled smooth, her losses now worn on her sleeve.

Unexpectedly thrust into close quarters by their living arrangements, it’s not long before Ziva and Yvonne rekindle their old connection—and with it the spark of mutual attraction. But Yvonne misled Ziva once before. What’s to say she won’t do it again—especially when she is spotted embracing another woman?

Publisher's Note: This book has previously been released as part of the Ladies Only Anthology with Pride Publishing.

3.5 Stars

I have to say that while there was a really great premise to this story, I felt like a lot was missing. The backstory between the two women was never really completely told and it left me feeling like the story was never fully told about their past and what got them to the awkward place the book started at.

However, that being said, I did like the story itself. We got to watch as the two women work through some issues that had been painful and hard for them to deal with, as well as both admitting where they were in their lives after eight years since they'd last seen each other.

I love the way Helena Maeve writes. She writes these incredible characters that you can't help but relate to in one way or another, but like I said, this story was missing a good explanation of what happened to the two women to break up their friendship, and that really took away from the story as a whole.

Helena Maeve has always been globe trotter with a fondness for adventure, but only recently has she started putting to paper the many stories she's collected in her excursions. When she isn't writing erotic romance novels, she can usually be found in an airport or on a plane, furiously penning in her trusty little notebook.
