New Release + Review – PAN by Gina L. Maxwell

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Gina L. Maxwell, comes a brand-new series with a fresh twist on an old classic.

Once upon a time, in Neverland, North Carolina–I fell in love.

I was twelve when Peter first climbed up to my balcony.
Thirteen when I sneaked out to see him at the School for Lost Boys.
Seventeen when his touch made me fly,
And eighteen when his words made me cry.

We were magnetic, drawn to each other from that very first night, and what I thought would be forever. But when it came time for me to leave, he wouldn’t come with, so I left town with a map for my future and a shattered heart.

Ten years later, I’ve returned to Neverland, hoping to find a man in place of the boy.

Peter was partially right, growing up is no fun. After quitting my fancy career that sucked the magic out of life, I’m now organizing the fundraiser of the year. In a move that could make or break the event and my new company, I’ve hired Peter, master mechanic and owner of LB Automotive, to help me pull this off–trusting him to rebuild a classic car for the auction that could help hundreds of foster kids in need.

I thought I was prepared, but the boy who refused to leave is now a man hell-bent on getting me to stay, and as sparks fly between us, that undeniable fire flares back to life, deeper and hotter than ever.

But that ripped body doesn’t mean Peter’s matured enough to make us or this event work, and not everyone in Neverland is happy about my return.

Not every wound heals.
Not every heart can be fixed.
Not every boy grows up.

And after all this time, the love we found might be lost to us again…this time, forever.

*Pan is an adult contemporary romance retelling of Peter Pan, complete with Wendy, Hook, Tink, and all the Lost Boys. There are no fantasy elements in this world, other than the “magic” that happens between the sheets.

Pan and Wendy fell in love as kids. But time and circumstance tore them apart. Now Wendy is all grown up and back in Neverland but not everyone is happy about that prospect.

Peter stayed back to take care of his Lost Boys and everyday he has ached for Wendy. Seeing her back gives him hope for a future with the love of his life. But maybe she’s too grown up for him. Maybe he’s still too childish for her.

Can Wendy and Pan meddle through the mess that is life to live the Happy Ever After they were meant for? 

Can I just say that I have never loved Peter Pan and the Lost Boys more???

Being this as my first Gina L. Maxwell read, I am completely blown away and utterly in awe.

I was emotional from the first chapter itself. I fell absolutely in love with Pan and his boys. Yes even Hook. No especially Hook.

This entire story was heartwarming. My heart ached for the Boys’ circumstances but also I’m so proud and happy that they found a way out from the shit life. Pan is my lover and as God is my witness, he is the purest person to have ever existed. I can’t explain how much I love and adore him. I cannot believe how freaking good he was. Honestly, I just want to read everything about him.

So I like Wendy but she kinda annoyed me at this ONE point and I tried but I didn’t get over it. Mostly because it hurt my Pan. But I can truly say she belongs with Pan and loves him as insanely as he loves her. She is almost perfect for him.

Did, I say I am super freaking excited for Hook’s book? Because I REALLY super freaking excited for Hook’s book. It will be my ruination and I CAN’T WAIT.
