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.

Is a full length romance novel by Penelope Ward.

Twenty year old Heather Chadwick has reached a stalemate with her life, the soul caregiver of a housebound mother has taken its toll on her life aspirations, she'd made a few big sacrifices for her mother, with not being able to go away to college a lot of responsibility rests on her head. For the past several years they have rented out a converted boathouse on their property at Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire to bring in the extra income that entails. But Heathers still has to works five nights a week at the local pub to help with their daily needs. 

Enter Noah Cavallari a much older guy, who has rented out the boathouse for the whole summer, which is unheard of, generally most only rent it out for a few weeks and then go on their way. 

Thinking the boathouse is unoccupied since his truck isn't parked out front she enters to make up his bed and give it a general tidy up, the last thing she expects to see is him coming from the bathroom area only draped in a towel, most would make their apologies and leave, but Heather was just too gobsmacked by how drop dead gorgeous he was and stood there glued to the spot staring. 

This wasn't the only awkward moment these two characters share, believe me there is more to come. The second time she encountered him she'd yet again managed to piss him off within seconds. It seemed Noah was either scolding me or laughing at me. There was no middle ground. 

These two developed such a unique friendship, sometimes it took me out of my comfort zone as most of the time it wasn't smooth sailing. It was awkward at the best of times. She became obsessed with him, but didn't want to form an attachment with someone just passing through. For some inexplicable reason since you moved in, something has awakened inside of me. I wake up excited. 

God there were sooooo many times, too many times to count, how uncomfortable I was reading this, Heather is just out there, like so out there, so young, but so old and wise in other ways, her awkwardness made me blush too many times to count. But god how I loved her character, just so free and quirky, vivacious and full of life a breath of fresh air, so open and honest, so dorky, but so adorable, I cringed, I laughed, I facepalmed so many times throughout this book. But her character was so endearing. 

Noah was a different kettle of fish entirely, so closed off and gruff, and so determined to keep his walls up, to keep her at a distance, but she was like a tornado once loose there was no stopping her crashing those walls to smithereens. He had no chance really. These two together were just perfection. I loved watching/reading as it all unfolded, the feels, the swoony moments, the sighs, such a sweet easy to love slow burn romance story.

Heather Chadwick-beautiful, young, wide-eyed, honest Heather Chadwick, whom I wanted to protect with every ounce of my soul as much as I wanted to taint her.
