THE DAY HE CAME BACK IS LIVE!
A Standalone Contemporary Romance
New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author
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.
I’m a long-time, dedicated Penelope Ward reader. But I have to say I wasn’t ready for the heart turmoil I experienced with this book. Let’s be honest, we know she can twist us up in the most perfect way. But Gavin…oh Gavin. He wore his heart on his sleeve. He’s a good bean – honorable, loyal, and tender-hearted. Really, he’s stinking amazing. Raven is so much brasher, though still kind-hearted, yet still so perfectly matched to him. There is no way they couldn’t have fallen for each other. And to see how his heart breaks – why it breaks – is nothing short of total annihilation.
I fully expected Gavin to a different person when we first met him and again when he came back. But Ward gave us a steadfast character who so easily stole our hearts. He is what he is, and that’s pretty amazing. I can’t blame Raven for falling so quickly, even if her heart repeatedly tried to stay out of it. Long story short, I see them as a modern day Romeo and Juliet.
The beauty of Raven is not what she looked like, but her ability to stay even keel in situations while still trying to see the best in people. And to steal Gavin’s words…she really is the glue to holding people and families together. Much like Gavin, she is honorable, loyal, and will do the right thing even when it entails self-sacrifice.
This book was everything I wanted it to be and more. No ridiculous drama with the perfect amount of angst. Throw in some plot twists, character arcs (I’m talking about you, Weldon!), and beautiful story development, and you won’t be able to read the pages fast enough. Make sure your kindle is fully charged before you dive in!!
