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.

Penelope Ward has just rocked my world!!!!
Where does one begin to describe a masterpiece of words????
This book has so many emotions that I literally laughed out loud at times...and shamelessly shed tears...this book was EVERYTHING!!!
Gavin was so swoony that it hurt...Raven was so relatable that I honestly felt like I was experiencing every single feeling, action, and thought that she had.
When Penelope typed “The End” on this book...I hope she did a mic drop. She has completely blown me away...in the most amazing way.
Well played Mrs. Ward.
Omg! Ravin! I love it🥰
Omg!! 🥰 Ravin!!
I absolutely loved this sweet, second chance romance!! This book had everything, a little humor, a bit of sadness and so much love! I absolutely loved Gavin and Raven’s story!! They had to endure so much to finally get back to each other!! This story definitely had a more serious vibe than some of Penelope’s previous stories and I loved it!! 5+ stars all the way!! Can’t wait to see what Penelope has in store for us next!!
