A Standalone Contemporary Romance Novel
NY Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author Penelope Ward
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.

I seriously loved this book. I mean HELLO, talk about serious COVER love right here, but this book was as delicious inside as it was outside!
This book has it all. It was swoony, sexy, funny, fresh, and the banter with these two characters was just off the charts. I found myself giggling so much, my heart doing cartwheels and me wanting to go book a cabin at the lake.
Heather and Noah were absolute perfection in every sense. I love the way their story unfolded, and it was a slow smoldering burn the whole way through. There may have been a little bit of an age difference between these two but Heather was wiser beyond her years and it didn’t take long for Noah to pick up on that. They seem like an unlikely pair and even though Noah seems to push Heather away with his broodiness, she sees right through him. Noah is keeping Heather at a distance, but the more time he spends at the Lake and with Heather the more he craves her.
When August Ends was certainly one of my favorites from Penelope Ward. Another book by this author that I read in one sitting. I for one NEVER wanted August to end!!!
