When August Ends by Penelope Ward
Genre: contemporary romance
Publisher: Penelope Ward Books, Inc.
Publication Date: February 23, 2019
Rating: ★★★★✰

Noah and Heather seemed like an unlikely pair, he kept fighting it while she knew what she wanted.

Heather I found to be a likeable person. She wasn’t afraid to speak her mind and I respected that. Noah I liked as well. He is a very caring guy and I really felt that while reading this book.

with ups and downs (mostly ups) I enjoyed this story. I will say, there is something very serious that happens that hits too close to home, because someone in my life had this happen, I think Penelope wrote the part well and justly.

4 Stars!

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

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
