From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward comes a new enemies-to-lovers story…
It all started with an unexpected phone call.
Two years after my fiancé passed away in an accident, his father died suddenly, leaving Brad’s adult, special-needs brother with no one to care for him.
The next thing I knew, I was on a cross-country drive to New Hampshire where I’d be moving in to look after Scottie until I could get him into a group home.
The last thing I ever expected?
I wouldn’t be taking care of him alone.
Josh Mathers, my fiancé’s best friend—who also happened to be my sworn enemy—insisted he was the better person for the job. He told me to go back to California, and I told him where he could stick that demand.
Our disdain for each other wasn’t anything new. It dated back to a text I’d accidentally read years ago.
We hated each other. But we both loved Scottie, so neither of us budged.
Now we were living together in a tiny house—with one available bedroom. Thank goodness it was only temporary.
Over time, I realized the broody jerk I thought I knew was different than I’d imagined.
I found myself slowly growing attached to someone I once considered the enemy…and growing attracted to him.
Sure, both of us were guilt-ridden over Brad. We were also two grown people with pent-up frustration toward one another—stuck in a cabin in the woods.
But this was Josh.
I could never.
I Could Never
OMG, Penelope did it again. What an amazing story. I don’t like to give away spoilers but this is a must read. So, so special - make sure to have a box of tissues close by. You will definitely need them. Thank you for sharing this amazing, heartfelt story with us!❤️💙🍨
Tear jerking story but I loved it! This is a must read how two people come together for the right reasons, caring for another human being. The challenges and struggles they both faced and overcame were remarkable. Ward did a phenomenal job writing this story.❤️
Well let me start off by saying WOW… this was such an amazing book. I really loved Josh and Carly. It was such a different kind of love story. You can sense their regret over Brad… With Josh not wanting to hurt Brad even though Brad was no longer here. It made both their characters more real and the fact that Brad was still with the both of them thru Scottie. Thank you again for writing such an amazing real love story ❤️❤️❤️
