Because this gives the back story of Blue and Axel- it is where they came from, their family and what has made them who they are today.
I liked this book, I liked the fact that a few of my niggles from the first book were ironed out and I loved the fact that I got to feel some of the emotion that I thought was missing in book 1.
This has it all, it is laugh out loud funny on some parts and at points it just made me cross.
But in the end it brought a tear to my eye.
Angel and Aaron were an odd pairing, I liked Aaron, and he was one of those guys that while he got it wrong on many occasion it was not for the want of trying. This biker had a heart of gold and when it came to Angel he loved without exception. A less than auspicious upbringing had left him to bring up his little sister Almeida, not that he didn’t have parents, it was just that what they did have wasn’t worth having – his father was a real piece of work!
Angel on the other hand was far from ordinary, this complicated woman is a complete dichotomy of emotions. This sweet nurse is more than she appears on the surface, she craves the ability to just cut loose.
So when Aaron enters her life, she can see that he is what she wants. But Aaron doesn’t believe that he has anything to offer her – if only he could just see that he is enough! She is the answer to everything he is looking for but doesn’t know he wants, if that makes sense.
I was blown away by the relationship that evolved between them and also between Almeida and Aaron’s friend Tangler. The scene of them painting with the kids was just delightful. It brought a huge smile to my face and picture to my imagination that I carried with me for a while, very special.Read more ›
In short, I loved it.. Rarely have I been able to go from laughing out loud (more than often in public which of course just garners me very odd looks) to then having to pretend I'm chopping onions (and quietly hoping for a sudden downpour)
The author has a very rare talent of drawing you in, truly making you care about the characters she describes so well.
Oh.. And having never read 50 shades of s***e, I can only just imagine just how amateurish that drivel compares to Miss Stone when it comes to the fun things in life.
You're doing yourself a severe injustice by not giving this book a go.

This book was an interesting read. I thought that the author did a good job of developing the characters in this story. The author also did a great job of setting the series in time period that she chose.
Having read the first book, Riveted, which actually takes place after this book, I had some idea of what was going to happen in this story. I really liked the relationship between Aaron and Angel, and Almeida and Tangler certainly added some funny moments as well. The build up of their relationship was done really well, and I liked that you got to see some very tender moments between the two. I also really adored ZuZu, and I thought the addition of that story line was done beautifully. I really felt a connection with the characters in that moment.
There were still a good deal of problems with the editing, and I noticed a pattern of phrases that were used repetitively throughout this series. While the character development was much better, and greatly added to this story, there were, again, some situations that came out of the blue that I just found to be a rather odd addition. I get what the author was trying to do, but I still think that it needed better forethought and some more work before it should have been added to the story line. Sometimes I felt that the situations were so far out there that they were just completely unbelievable, and they took me out of the story at times. There was one scene in particular that I had a very hard time believing, and this took away from my rating.
I also feel that while this book was listed as a prequel, having it be labeled as book 1.5 in the series was a mistake. This book really should be read before Riveted, because it provides a lot of essential background information. It would also make the story flow better. So while I might recommend this book, I would suggest reading it before any of the others.
This is a Prequel to the book Riveted, I wish that I would have read this book 1st then Riveted. You get a better idea of the family Bleu and Axel came from. This book surprised me with so many different emotions, I have not read a book like in a long time. Some of the things make you laugh so hard you might pee your pants and the next you want to throw your kindle across the way, then lastly you sit and cry your eyes out. It was an amazing story and I can't wait to read the next book. I need some answers, some closing!
Aaron is your typical hard and rugged biker dude, with one exception, he has a heart the size of New York city and when he loves you he holds nothing back. He might not have made great decisions, but can tell that he wants more, he wants his Angel!
Angel is a complex character, she looks like the girl next door and even comes off like that as well, but deep inside she wants to be wild and run free with the wind. She made me laugh and cry more times than i can count! When she meets Aaron at the hospital things take a surprising turn with sparks flying in every direction!!
I would rate this book 4 out 5 fangs!
Independent reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.
By all accounts, they shouldn't have worked together. Yes, they both had rough childhoods. However, Angel was still a good girl while Aaron was a rough around the edges kind of guy. But as stated by one of my many favorite characters in this book “No one, not a single soul on this bloody planet can tell you who to love. Your head can’t even tell your heart that. Now don’t get me wrong, it can throw out all sorts of warning signs, but at the end of the day, your heart still feels”. Angel and Aaron belonged together. Their relationship was far from perfect, but they loved each other.
I love a story that can make me feel such a wide range of emotions. M.A. Stone has done that with this book. I laughed, cried, fanned myself...you name it. I cannot wait to read more in this series. M.A. Stone, you have created a fan in me.
I would give There Goes The Neighborhood 4.5 stars.
*I received There Goes The Neighborhood as an ARC for an honest review.
After reading book one in this series, I was desperate to find out more about the Drawn family, and I love that this prequel covers Bleu and Axel's parents coming together. Aaron and Angel were sweet, sexy and funny as hell. I'm not sure what was my favourite part, but I can tell you that Gran and Tangler were kick-ass, hilarious secondary characters and I laughed out loud on a number of occasions.
This book wasn't just funny though. It was also touching and a little angsty. I'd be lying if I said I didn't well up just a bit (ok, more than just a bit) but the emotions were so worth it to learn how Bleu and Axel came to be (LOVE the story of their names...!)
The ending was perfect, if more than a little sad, and the book had an unconventional, bittersweet HEA... Kinda. It's hard to say because NO SPOILERS ALLOWED but it was a perfect launching point for the next book in the series and I can't wait to read it.
Angel And Aron not a Romeo and Juliet story but with undertones that will remind you of those star crossed lovers. I loved it!
