*Blog Tour/Review* The Assignment by Penelope Ward

 

Title: The Assignment
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 28, 2022
BLURB

 

 

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

 

Reasons why I should not be drawn to Troy Serrano.
Number one: He’s obnoxious.
Number two: He and I were enemies over a decade ago in high school.
Number three: He’s my friend’s ex-boyfriend.
I could go on and on, really.
When my boss gives me an unwanted assignment and tells me it involves spending time with the grandson of one of our residents—the grandson turns out to be Troy. He’s now as successful as he is undeniably handsome.
Lucky me. Four hours a week of having to deal with his insufferable personality and unsolicited advice.
The only consolation is getting to stare at his annoyingly gorgeous face in between our many arguments.
Eventually, though, we slowly warm to each other and our outings become something I actually look forward to.

 

What’s happening to me?

 

Apparently, I misunderstood the assignment, because it certainly didn’t include thinking about Troy when I close my eyes at night, imagining what it would be like with him—just once. All the while hating myself for fantasizing about a guy who’s all wrong for me. A guy whose car I keyed back in the day. (Long story, but he deserved it.)
That’s all this is—a fantasy.
Well, until that one night at the bar.
The night Troy and I run into each other, and all of our pent-up frustration comes barreling out.
Still, I refuse to accept that it means anything.
There’s no way the guy I’m supposed to hate is also the one I can’t live without.

This book was a cute and fun read.  It was light and easy to get through.     I did enjoy this enemies to lovers romance and the way it all came together in the end with Aspen and Troy.   I loved all the little “sprinkles” along the way reading as well.   I found myself giggling especially with Nonno and really loved Troy’s character but found myself having a hard time really connecting with Aspyn for some odd reason.    I keep trying to put my finger on it but I think it was because of her simply just taking forever to realize things you do as a teen, MOST don’t do as an adult.   Once she finally came to this realization and let go a bit, I found myself liking her more as the book went on.   Oh and let’s not forget about Kiki an Menses the Unicorn, I damn near spit out my drink at that one!   Such an adorable little girl, clever and so oh witty!   I love how Troy connected with her, it really melted my ice cold heart!

Nonno 1000% stole the show in this book for me!  While this one wasn’t one of my favorites from one of my go to authors, I still enjoyed it none the less.  It was well written, with a good story line.  It had all the feels and certainly packed full of cute moments and laughter.   As always I can’t wait to see what Ms. Ward brings us next!

*Blog Tour / Review* Well Played by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Title: Well Played
Authors: Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 25, 2021

 

It all started with a bet.

 

When my young son inherited half of his great grandfather’s historic inn, I decided to move us both to the place where I grew up.
Notice I said half of the Inn. The other half now belonged to Levi Miller, the famous quarterback who had other ideas about what we should do with the property.
We won’t mention that I accidentally injured him during our first meeting, causing him to get eight stitches.
You could say we got off on the wrong foot.
We bickered a lot as we both moved into the property while we figured things out.
He wanted to unload the rundown place which, admittedly, needed a lot of work.
I wanted to restore The Palm Inn to its original beauty and re-open it as a bed and breakfast.
We couldn’t agree on anything. So Levi made me a proposal. One he thought I would surely lose. If I could sell out the place by the time he had to leave for training at the end of summer, he would back off and let me run it.
But in the weeks that followed, we got more than we bargained for while we were living under the same roof.
Levi and I got closer, and before I knew it, my nightly fantasies about the brawny Adonis became a reality. Not to mention, he was so great with my son.
We were in over our heads in more ways than one.
Because not only was he the last man on Earth I should be falling for because of our deal, but Levi was also my ex’s older brother.
And now the inn was the least of my problems.

I really enjoyed Well Played.  I say this every review with anything written by these two authors, but I really do think they are a dynamic duo that can write incredibly well and compliment each other in anything they publish.

Well Played all starts with Presley’s young son Alex inheriting her Ex’s grandfathers Inn, well a portion of it that is.  The other portion was inherited by Levi, who happens to be the Ex’s brother.  She moved Alex away from the NY into a small town in hopes for a better life.  The only problem is she wants to fix up in the Inn and plant roots in the small town, but Levi has other plans to sell and wants no parts of it and go back to his life as a star QB.

Can Presley change Levi’s mind into not selling?  And, what happens along the way between these two especially considering the Ex is Levi’s brother Tanner?  Things could go down as the worst play in playbook history or it can turn out to be the best Well Played game of all time!  Gotta read to find out, trust me you won’t be disappointed!

*Blog Tour/Review* Not Pretending Anymore by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Title: Not Pretending Anymore
Authors: Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 12, 2021

 

Finding a good roommate through a classified ad isn’t as easy as it sounds.
I was starting to lose hope.
Until a knock at my door came and God answered my prayers.
Except…uh…wrong prayer, God.
I’d definitely requested the big guy find me a drop-dead gorgeous man on more than one occasion…just not as my roommate.
Declan Tate talked me into interviewing him anyway.
While he was amusing and charismatic, I wouldn’t have been comfortable living with a man, so I regretfully declined.
Then cupcakes showed up at my door—freshly baked by Declan and just as sinfully delicious as he was.
You could say he was persistent.
I eventually folded. It wasn’t like I had another viable candidate anyway.
Plus, I was interested in someone else. And Declan was into another woman. So it wasn’t like anything would happen romantically.
After he moved in, the two of us became the best of friends. We even started to give each other advice on getting our crushes to notice us.
Eventually, Declan concocted an idea: we should pretend to be a couple to make our love interests jealous.
I was hesitant, but went along with it anyway. To my utter shock, his crazy plan worked.
Now I was dating the supposed man of my dreams, and my best friend had the woman of his.
But there was one problem.
I couldn’t stop thinking about Declan.
Those feelings we were trying to fake?
Yeah…I wasn’t pretending anymore.

Molly is in desperate need for a roommate and so far every woman has come to her door has been a complete dud for one reason or another.  Enter D. Tate… who is certainly NOT a woman by any means but he was sure he could make his new perspective roomie, see it his way.   I was sure Declan was on his way to winning Molly over with his charming charisma but Molly wasn’t having until her love for frosting changed her mind!     I loved the banter between Declan and Molly from the start.   I knew I was going to love these two and I was right, I totally did!

These two became total besties fast, but we could tell the feelings were certainly brewing but neither one of them wanted to admit it since they were both crushing on other people at their jobs.   But you know what they say, ya always want what someone else has, day late, dollar short kinda thing.  Question is, is it going to be TOO late to NOT PRETEND ANYMORE?     I adored this book and read it one sitting!  I give this one a Five Pink M&Ms!!

*Review* The Crush by Penelope Ward

Title: The Crush
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2021
BLURB

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone, second-chance story of forbidden love… 

 

It’s natural to want the one you can’t have. And for as long as I could remember, I’d secretly wanted my brother’s best friend, Jace.
He was six years older and always treated me like the sister he never had.
Fast forward a decade.
We were all in our twenties now. Jace had moved in with my brother, Nathan, and me to help us make ends meet after our parents died.
It was just the three of us—an odd family dynamic.
Living under our roof, Jace was as bossy and protective as ever.
But he certainly didn’t look at me like a sister anymore. That was what made things so complicated.
I was pretty much hot and bothered twenty-four-seven.
And he was torn.
The signs were subtle, at first. Like on movie night, I’d casually rest my leg against his, and he wouldn’t exactly shift away.
Still, I assumed he would never…go there. 
Nathan would kill us.
The knowledge of that wasn’t enough to stop the inevitable, though.
Eventually our slow burn exploded.
But more than the physical attraction, we’d developed a strong connection.
We just couldn’t get caught, right?
That sounded simple.
Until it wasn’t.
This is a story of forbidden love, broken trust, and an unexpected second chance.

I love a good forbidden romance.  The brothers best friend is probably one of my most favorites for sure, because it’s always going to have explosive drama!   Farrah has had a crush on Jace forever, but while she secretly crushed she never acted it because her brother Nathan would literally have a cow.  Jace isn’t a stick around kind of guy either, but something clicks between them especially once Jace moves in with Farrah and Nathan.    He tries he damnedest to deny the attraction but when it’s there it’s just there.   Both of these characters have baggage that is for sure.   This book is a story of loss, guilt and a little of everything else inbetween.   I always enjoy all of Penelope Wards books and this one was no different.

*Blog Tour and Review* Happily Letter After by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Title: Happily Letter After

Authors: Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Publisher: Montlake

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: October 20, 2020

From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes a love story about taking chances and the surprises that come with them.
My love story all started with a letter.
Only it wasn’t from the man I’d eventually fall in love with. It was from his daughter. A sweet little girl named Birdie Maxwell who’d written to the magazine that I worked for.
You see, once a year my employer fulfilled a few wishes for readers. Only that column didn’t start up again for months.
So I fulfilled some of her wishes myself. It was harmless…so I thought. Until one day I took things too far.
While anonymously granting yet another of Birdie’s wishes, I got a look at her father. Her devastatingly handsome, single dad father.
I should have stopped playing fairy godmother then. I should have left well enough alone. But I just couldn’t help myself. I had a connection to this girl. One that had me acting irrationally.
Like when I showed up on their doorstep.

I totally loved Happily Letter After. This was one of my most loved books written so far by the dynamic duo. I thought the characters were just perfect and the story line was super cute. It kept me interested from start to finish and feeling every emotion you can think of.

Sadie received a Letter to Santa in the middle of summer where she works writing dating do’s and lots and lots of dont’s. She also reads the letters for Santa during the holiday season, so getting a letter so early had her intrigued. She felt connected to this little girl writing the letters and wanted to make her Santa wishes come true. Sadie thought what could it hurt to send a few items, but one thing led to another and she found herself right on the doorstep of Birdies house one day. What she certainly wasn’t expecting was a massive case of mistaken identity that she literally just rolled with, figuring she’d make a swift exit only it didn’t happen that way. She definitely wasn’t expecting Sebastian or to fall for Birdie and The Duke.

This story was funny, quirky, fun and heart-warming. I loved every single second of it. While I loved Sadie and Sebastian’s chemistry and banter, I really think Birdie stole my heart in this book! The connection between Birdie and Sadie is what really made me fall in love with this one!

*Blog Tour/Review* The Anti-Boyfriend by Penelope Ward

Title: The Anti-Boyfriend

Author: Penelope Ward

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: August 31, 2020

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

At first, my neighbor Deacon frustrated me.
Sure, he was great-looking and friendly.
But our walls were thin, and on occasion, he’d bring women to his place and keep me awake while he “entertained” them.
As a single mother to an infant, I didn’t appreciate it.
So, finally it was my turn.
When my daughter wouldn’t stop wailing one night, Mr. Manwhore came knocking on my door.

Miraculously, at the sound of his voice, Sunny stopped crying. And when he held her…she eventually fell asleep in his arms.
Deacon was rough on the exterior, but apparently on the inside? Mr. Single-and-Ready-to-Mingle was a baby whisperer.
After that night, we became friends.
He’d go for coffee runs. Come over to chat. Normal friend stuff.
But over time, our conversations ran deeper. We got closer.
Until one night we crossed the line.
Our friendship turned into a complicated mess.
I’d gone and fallen for a guy who’d sworn off commitment and kids.
I knew Deacon was starting to care for me too, even though Sunny and I didn’t fit into any plan he’d ever imagined for himself.
He was wrong for me—so wrong that I’d dubbed him the “anti-boyfriend.”
Then why did I wish more than anything that I could be the one woman to change him?

 

The Anti-Boyfriend is a sweet friends-to-lovers romance full of everything I absolutely love to find in a book.  This was a fun yet emotional standalone packed full of all the feels.   Carys is a single mom to a beautiful little girl named Sunny.  Deacon is her wall bangin, monkey ball, manwhore next door neighbor who had me swooning from the moment we met him.

I laughed, I swooned and I even got teary eyed on their road to love.   These two started off as friendly neighbors but their undeniably chemistry and attraction couldn’t be ignored.   I loved the banter and the funny conversations, flirty texts and Deacons sweet gestures in trying to help out Carys with whatever he could.  Coffee, Diapers, you know name it, he delivered and had a fun time doing it.  This caring, sweet, and sexy baby whisperer is certainly swoon-worthy.

This book had two great main characters and one sweet little girl that you couldn’t help just falling for all three of them and their story.   Another fantastic read from Ms. Ward!  I can’t wait to see what she gives us next!
