    Review: The Day He Came Back

    The Day He Came Back by Penelope Ward is yet another emotionally charged, sexy romance from a must-read author. A second chance romance that is about so much more than JUST second chances. Told in dual points of view between Raven and Gavin, this story had me hooked from the first page. Raven may come from the other side of the bridge in Palm Beach but she knows her worth. Gavin is tired of the haughty expectations of his mother and wants nothing more than to be happy, and Raven makes him happy. But when social standing becomes more important than her own sons happiness the relationship that was just getting started between Raven and Gavin implodes. Fast forward ten years and it is sheer cosmic fate that has Raven and Gavin back in the same house at the same time. Will they ever be able to get past their history and work out their differences or is this meeting just a chance to properly say goodbye. Emotional, heart-breaking, romantic, sexy, powerful - as always - Loved it! Enjoy!

    A high angst, second chance romance!

    I totally loved Raven and Gavin in this story! It was so refreshing to see that Gavin wasn't a spoiled rich kid like his brother Weldon. And I loved that Raven was a strong heroine with a solid head on her shoulders. Penelope does a great job of showing how these two kids from opposite sides of the track were so deeply connected to each other. I have a love/hate relationship with second chance romances, because for me, the reason for the separation of the two characters has to really be believable, and Penelope really crafted this one well with Gavin's despicable mother. Ugh, I hated that woman. The grown up me had to really step back and remember that Raven was just a 20 year old girl from the wrong side of the tracks that had everything to lose, so the decisions she made were what SHE needed to do. Again, I hate that evil witch, Ruth! Fast forward 10 years and Raven and Gavin are brought back together, and the sparks fly immediately. This part of the book was so angsty for me with what these character's present situations are. Gavin's present situation mostly is what caused this stress for me. Even though it caused me stomach aches, I couldn't read fast enough to see what was going to happen with Raven and Gavin. I absolutely loved the secondary characters! Gunther, Marni, and yes, even Weldon. Fans of high angst second chance romances are going to eat this book up!

    Penelope Ward just rocked my world!!

    Where does one begin to describe a masterpiece of words???? This book has so many emotions that I literally laughed out loud at times...and shamelessly shed tears...this book was EVERYTHING!!! Gavin was so swoony that it hurt...Raven was so relatable that I honestly felt like I was experiencing every single feeling, action, and thought that she had. When Penelope typed “The End” on this book...I hope she did a mic drop. She has completely blown me away...in the most amazing way. Well played Mrs. Ward.

    First Love / Second Chance Romance.

    Have you thought what your first love is now doing and if you’ll ever meet up again? Raven has taken on a new job as a nurse caring for her mother’s boss who is suffering with dementia. There is a lot of history between them, and Mr M was extremely kind to her mum. Even though his eldest son was her first and only true love, she didn’t think she would have to run into him again as he is now living in London. It’s ten years since that fateful night, and it feels like it’s only been one for Raven when Gavin comes home to check up on his fathers health and finances. All the emotions and what ifs come back to haunt her. For Gavin, he’s not sure if he is hallucinating or in a time warp scenario and he’s not happy with what he is confronted with on his arrival home. I really did enjoy this book. It took me on a journey of love lost and hope that second chances can prevail. Raven was a sassy teen who had learnt to deal with what life was dishing out, even if she was on the wrong side of the bridge. As she grew older, she again had to endure life’s uncertainties and headaches. She was a tough cookie, that’s for sure! I adored Gavin. He may have been lucky to live at the post code that he did, but he wasn’t a snob or obnoxious like his peers. He learnt to roll with the punches even if it wasn’t his choices to start with. He found his own footing despite what was expected of him. What makes him even more swoon worthy is he kept his integrity the whole way through. I would have like a little more spunk and moxie when they first reunited for some added tension but I think it might have gone against Gavin’s nature. I was totally happy with the epilogue and how things progressed between them. I’m not sure... but I get the feeling we may hear more of the elusive and puzzling brother Weldon, and I would love to know his full story.

    If I could give more stars, I would <3

    I love these characters SO HARD. Man, Raven is the type of girl I would have loved to have been in college. The fact that she knows Jiu-Jitsu, made me love her harder. A girl from "the other side of the tracks," knew she would never fit into someone like Gavin's world. Gavin's family (mainly his mother) considered her "the help" and would never approve of her son getting involved with her. The way he immediately connected to her made me love him more. Their connection was so deep. And the emotional choice Raven had to make.... would it all matter the day he came back?
