    A sweet and sexy romance

    When August Ends is a sweet and sexy, slow burn clash of fate. Heather is 20. She's a caretaker for her ill mother and helps with renting out the boathouse. She's vivacious and full of life. A spunky, mature, and independent young woman who puts other's needs before her own. Noah is mysterious, broody, sexy, confident with a sense humor and killer smile. He's also older. Noah rents the boathouse for the summer to escape. He never expects to be knocked over by Heather. 📷 Though the attraction between them is imminent, Noah is intrigued by Heather but he keeps his distance. Even when he continues to reject her, he can't seem to stay away. Yet, they form a friendship that soon turns into more. You'll fall in love with these two strangers as their connection is undeniable. Add in some cute guinea pigs and a big dog and you are bound to be entertained! Once again, Penelope Ward has written another hit. I'm in love with this woman's writing and am looking forward to more of her books! 💃🏼

    Such a delight to read!

    I was riveted from the beginning of this beautiful book and it had my attention throughout the whole storyline! The characters, namely Noah and Heather hold a place in my heart! Heather definitely has a lot on her plate but when Noah rents the boathouse her family runs, needless to say you will have a tumultuous ride in store as you read! I loved Heather's personality, her ability to just blurt out whats on her mind and the connection that builds between them is so endearing! Noah came to rent the place and we find out some truths later on! Decisions, how the heart feels and beautiful friendships all make this the most enjoyable book that will stay in my heart forever! I especially loved how it ended and the sadness is there but doesn’t distract from a heartwarming romance! Such a delight to read!

    A slow burn love story...

    When August Ends is a sexy, sad, funny, slow burn love story that will give you all the feels with a few surprises thrown in. I found myself laughing out loud and shedding a few tears while reading this one. Heather is young and has had to give up things that she wanted to do, because she puts her family and their needs first. You would think that she would be bitter, but she is not. She is optimistic, makes the best of a bad situation, and not afraid to speak her mind. Wise beyond her years, she is drawn to Noah from their very first embarrassing meeting. Noah is confident, sexy, and mysterious. He has rented the boathouse from Heather's family for the entire summer and even though he is drawn to Heather from the start, he puts his feelings on the back burner, trying to do what is best for her. I loved this book from the very first page. It is one of those books that you want to know what happens and at the same time you do not want it to end. I highly recommend this one, I bet you even fall in love with Teddy, Bonnie and Clyde. Five glowing stars for this one!!

    Great Read

    Penelope Ward is one of my unicorn/ go to authors and just when I think I have seen her best she gives me yet another brilliant read and When August Ends is certainly that, it is a must read. This book has all the feels you want and expect in a great read, a slow burn with characters you will fall in love with, it will captivate you and keep you interested to the very last page. Noah and Heather stole a piece of my heart and I think if I’m totally honest I’m not going to get it back because their journey will be a story I will read over and over again. I loved Heather’s honestly, I loved how she had no control over blurting out exactly what’s on her mind and the friendship she shared with the man she had fallen for hook line and sinker. What can I say about Noah that hasn’t already been said before he is dark, mysterious and extremely handsome and boy oh boy did I swoon. Noah may have tried to warn Heather he was too old and wasn’t into relationships but sometimes friendships turn into so much more and love happens when we least expect it. This book has it all, secrets, lies, second chances as well as rejection but there is also plenty of moments that will leave you smiling so do yourself a favour and one click When August Ends.

    Amazing characters, and the captivating plot!

    Penelope Ward takes us in a rollercoaster ride of emotions with Noah and Heather's story. When August Ends is filled with laughter, drama and sexiness. I loved the twists and surprises, the crazy banter between Noah and Heather, how their relationship developed, the angst, the amazing characters, and the captivating plot. Penelope Ward did a phenomenal job with When August Ends! I love her writing style and she's the ability to suck the reader into the story and fall in love with the amazing characters she creates. I can't wait to read more from her!
