A Standalone Contemporary Romance

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

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.

It was the summer of my life.
I’d met the guy of my dreams.
Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity employer–and very much off-limits.
But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be careful.
He never treated me as his mother did–like hired help.
Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and loved me harder than I’d ever been loved in my life.

What a summer it was.
Until it all ended–badly.

I was never supposed to see Gavin again.
That didn’t stop me from thinking about him every day for ten years.
I knew little about his life now, just that he was an entrepreneur living an ocean away.

When a twist of fate had me working again in the very place our love affair started a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of time before I might see him again.
But I wasn’t prepared.
What if he hated me?
What if he loved someone else now?
I wasn’t prepared for all the unknowns.

And most of all, I wasn’t prepared for today to be the day he came back.

Sultan Review (2018)

Oh, be still my beating heart. I devoured this book in one sitting. Once I started I couldn’t stop. Gavin was… perfection. And Raven was a breath of fresh air. I could see why the two of them were like magnets towards each other. They were the perfect ying and yang. And they made each other better. At the end of the day isn’t that all we want? Someone who sees us, really sees us, flaws and charm and all? 

Gavin was not you typical rich boy. Yes, he came from money, went to the best schools, wore the best clothes, and had the best watches. But, he didn’t need any of that to be happy or be complete. All he needed and all he wanted was love, Raven’s love to be exact. These two feel hard and fast for each other. But when you know… you know. But like all good things, they can not last forever. Evil has a way of slithering in and ruining it. And that exactly what happened to these two. That being said… when second chances come around…. will we be brave enough, strong enough, to give it another shot? Or has it been too long, has too much time passed, too much distance between two hearts, has anger filled the areas where love and innocence once were? You’ll have to read to find out. All i can tell you is, I couldn’t stop till i knew the answers. 

This book was a hit for me. A win in every way, well almost every way.  I was loving life and everything till we got to the ending. I just felt it fell short, and there could have been so much more. I didn’t understand why Gavin gave her what he did in the end. It resembled such a hateful and evil thing. I was so not ready for it to end that way, that I kept trying to turn to the next page in my kindle saying to myself “ surely this can’t be how it ends?!” Even with the ending aside, it was still a very magical and amazing adventure, then again anything by Ms. Ward always is.
