A Standalone Contemporary Romance Novel

NY Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Penelope Ward





What do you do when a sexy, older man moves into your family’s summer rental?

Well, apparently, you make a fool of yourself—over and over. Things didn’t exactly get off on the right foot with Noah Cavallari. Our first encounter was embarrassing, to say the least.

But despite that, I found myself waking up every day with a newfound energy. Nothing exciting ever happened on the lake—not until Noah moved into the small boathouse on our property. He’d booked it for the entire summer…and I was still trying to figure out why.

When my mother became ill, I inherited the responsibility of making sure our guests were well taken care of. I should have been in college. Instead, I was living my best life…as a maid.

Dark, handsome, and mysterious, everything about Noah screamed forbidden.

I knew he was just passing through town for the summer.

I knew he was probably too old for me.

Yet, I was drawn to him.

Not to mention, he tried to save my life when he mistakenly thought I was drowning.

I wanted him and made no secret of it.

His own attempts to warn me away soon gave way to late-night moonlight chats by the lake. We were slowly easing into a friendship that was gearing up to explode into something I might not recover from.

Because he’s leaving at the end of the summer.

And I have no idea what I’ll do when August ends.

Sultan Review (2018)

Another amazing read by Penelope Ward!! I really enjoyed my time at the lake with these two!! Talk about a nice slow burn summer loven book! But for these two it was a perfect build up to their amazing relationship!! 

Noah is an older hot guy who is renting the boathouse for the summer. While Heather is barely drinking age but is wise beyond her years and running the show for her mom and her. Heather was so easy to love. She was honest and adorable and just so darn kind. Noah didn’t stand a chance against her. 

Noah is going through some changes in his life too, and the escape was exactly what he needed. What he didn’t need was the 21 year old buttsinski”. But he soon realized you can’t help but fall for this girl. And soon he realized age was just a number. You can’t help falling in love and sometimes you have to follow your heart and give your brain the finger. 

I can’t wait to see what else this very talented author has in store. Whether solo or with her dynamic duo, I can’t help but love what she dishes out. I recommend this book to anyone looking to stay warm ’till the summer months come on.
