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.
When August Ends was another emotional and sexy romance from Penelope Ward. I really enjoyed this one, for me it had a different feel than other books by Ms. Ward. Now I have to admit it started off slow for me but once I really got into their story, I was hooked.
Noah and Heather have a connection, one that’s more than just sexual, it’s more than what you first believe. Heather’s character had me laughing out loud more than once, especially when you read about her water aerobics and no, I won’t expand on that but I about died at that part from lack of oxygen from laughing. Noah it took me a bit to warm up to him, and when you fully get his background and history your heart breaks a bit and it explains so much of why he was the way he was with Heather at first.
When August Ends is another amazing book from Penelope Ward and one that this book whore really enjoyed and can easily say needs to be at the top of your TBR lists right now.
