Why does this author like cheating so much???!!!

I wanted this book so bad and now after finally getting my hands on it, I was disappointed that it didn't received a more expanded plot.. I wanted to explore more this romance between Tyler and Jade, but if Penelope considered that this romance had to be a novela, I totally respect her decision. ...more

I don't read many novellas, but when I found out this one was free I jumped on it.

So... we met these two characters in Neighbor Dearest. They're Damien's brother and Chelsea's sister and the first time they saw each other, Tyler made an ass of himself, getting weirdly awe-struck by the gorgeous Broadway actress... with his girlfriend just a few feet away.

As far as novellas go, this one had good pacing, although I felt like the ending was a bit rushed. The fact that Tyler was with someone else f

This is a story about Jade and Tyler, Chelsea and Damien's siblings in that order and what really happened to Tyler during Christmas. LOL.

This is me! Oh my gosh, I just found the male version of my life story! It was like my alter ego in another universe. It was so short tho, that made me sad :(

Tyler was awestruck when he first met Jade, talked gibberish, dropped his beer, acting like a loon and so on. Well it was the same for Jade actually, she just hid it bett

I was sooo happy to get this novella about Tyler (Damien's brother) and Jade (Chelsea's sister). Both Damien and Chelsea are from Neighbor Dearest and we found out in their book that both Jade and Tyler are actors.

It was sooo funny when Jade and Tyler first meet. I loved his reaction and I loved how Damien gave him a hard time.


This book was the perfect example of how a dual POV is necessary because I sooo needed to know how Jade felt!

Unfortunately, they both have obstacles that prevents

Sweet love story about Jade and Tyed ❤.

Yay for freebies. Wasn’t a huge fan of the situation the H was in, but it was a pretty short, cute read nonetheless. Yay for freebies.

Oops!!! I think i've read it backwards!!! But it wasn't something that i couldn't follow...
This was a nice short story about Jade and Tyler.... you see what Penelope done with the title??? Jaded and Tyed....
Well, i can not say more about this book.... it was a quick but intense love story and the heroes were connecting with the heroes of "Neighbor dearest"....
End of story.... 😀

Is it ok to be the other woman on someone’s relationship and seems desperate just because you have not so much luck with so many of your past relationship? That you always be the second choice ?

To be very clear, I would want to give this a 1 star but due to the love I have for Penelope's writing and funny dialogues and of course the appearance of my favorite couple Damien and Chelsea I won't be harsh with this one. And if you're wondering why this story is not for me, here's why:


-right from the end of Neighbor Dearest I can already tell that Tyler was having some attraction going on with Jade (ie: tounge twisted scene) and it seems cute for some other people but knowing
Cute little follow up to Neighbor Dearest- which I Loved.
The H is the brother of the H in N.D. and the h is the sister of the h in N.D.

This is absolutely a funny cute sexy Oh-so-sweet short novella that proves that Penelope Ward is a real star and that having her as an auto buy author is one of my best decisions.

Quick and fun read!
(just watch out for the red flag - see below)

This is a short and sweet follow on from the amazing Neighbor Dearest, featuring Jade and Tyler (sister of Chelsea and brother of Damian), but it can easily be read as a standalone.

I fell in love with both Jade and Tyler while reading Neighbor Dearest. They were there for Chelsea and Damian during their dramas, an integral part of their lives, but actually never met each other until a spine-tingling meeting at the end of the book –

I know this was just a short novella but man oh man, it read more like an amateur short story with no substance. Jade and Tyler are both actors - she on Broadway in NYC and Tyler with a smaller career in San Francisco. They are connected to one another through his brother and her sister's marriage. Tyler has a live in girlfriend but it doesn't stop him going all googly eyed over Jade when he first meets her. Cut to a year later and the two are in constant contact on Facebook keeping it a big sec ...more

5 Short & Sweet Stars!

The only thing I would have changed about this book, would have been the length! However, beggars can't be choosers, and I NEEDED this story after falling in love with, NEIGHBOR DEAREST! Oh...and it was FREE! :-D

Tyler and Jade's relationship started off unconventionally, no doubt. A strong mutual attraction happened before they knew what hit them. It's hard to pinpoint a specific moment an "emotional affair" begins sometimes. As it's not always clear or intentional when yo

Overall 3.5 out of 5 stars
Performance 4 out of 5 stars
Story 3.5 out of 5 stars

I'm glad Jade and Tyler got their own story. This was a quick listen, but entertaining nonetheless. I liked how their friendship started and how things moved on from there. Ty was sweet with Jade, there for her when she needed someone the most.
I felt kind of bad for Nicole- I'm sure she thought Ty breaking up with her came out of the blue. I'm glad he did break up with her though, before things

Who wouldn't love a quick little romp through the mind of Penelope Ward on a drizzly day like today? I wouldn't! This was a newsletter gift, maybe..I truly don't remember how it landed on my Kindle but it was an irresistible little novella that didn't take long to read. Short and sweet with just the right blend of 'from the first moment' fascination between the lead characters that, for certain circumstances would be unwise to act upon. Anticipation, heat and longing. Both trying to ignore that ...more

This was a short novella featuring Jade and Tyler. Overall, I enjoyed it, but I wasn’t totally on board with the timing for how things went down between them. It just seemed unnecessary to add that layer of drama with Nicole. It only made Tyler less likeable and Jade into the very thing she seemed to despise based on her history. I think it was especially hard to see them like this because I loved both their characters so much in Neighbor Dearest. I did love seeing Damien and Chelsea again thoug ...more

As much as I loved some of the dialogue in this novella (especially the FB messages- they were hilarious 😂), I really disliked the ‘emotional cheating’ aspect of Jade and Tyler’s relationship.

Sure enough, sometimes we can be with people that were not destined for, and thus fall for the ones were meant to be with, but I still felt really bad for Nicole.

Other than that, it’s a funny and witty novella that’s quite entertaining.

The fact that Penelope Ward can make me give five stars to a novella less than 60pgs proves what an amazing author she is. She can do no wrong as far as I'm concerned.

3.5 stars. Oh, how I loved Jade and Tyler in Neighbor Dearest. I just wish it had been a full length novel. The short story, despite being too short, was amazingly done. It would’ve been a 5 star read hands down, if it had been a full-length novel. ;)

Jaded and Tyed by Penelope Ward
Ms Ward has a lovely way of putting us out of our misery. She introduces us to secondary characters in previous books and lets our minds wonder about them (for a while). If you read Neighbor Dearest you were introduced to Tyler, being Damien brother and to Jade, being Chelsea sister. They met at a Christmas party and you could feel there was something between them. Tyler is in a committed relationship with Nicole but he is questioning the relationship. J

Super short read, straightforward, and sweet.

What happens when the person you meet for the first time takes your breath away? Do you pretend like nothing happened or do you go ahead and follow your instinct?

Jade and Tyler are a much-awaited story. Although I would have liked for the story to have been a little longer, it was sweet none the less.
