    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! 💃🏼

    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!!

    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 sexy and sweet slow burn romance!

    I am super happy that Penelope wrote a story that involves an age gap between the Hero and heroine. I loved the slow burn between Noah and Heather. Penelope always takes us on a journey in her stories and this one focuses a lot on not letting life pass you by. Heather was very refreshing, young in age but mature in soul. She's put her own dreams on hold to take care of her mother. When she sees the man who has rented their boathouse for the summer, she feels something for him she's never felt towards anyone before. But Noah quickly makes it clear, nothing is going to happen between them, no matter how many advances Heather makes. I really enjoyed the journey Heather and Noah take together. Spending the summer together, fixing up the property so that Heather can put it on the market to sell. These two grew together as friends, learning many lessons from each other along the way. Initially, I was a little put off with how rude Noah came across to Heather with his abruptness and gruffness, but he grew on me over time and by the end of the story I was pretty enamored with him. There are plenty of emotions in this book, and like the slow burn between Heather and Noah, the emotions built to a crescendo for me up until the very end. With everything that Heather and Noah are dealing with, separately and together, my heart was stretched tight for them, and then Penelope lovingly molded it back into shape and left me with a happy, goofy smile on my face. Fans of Penelope's stories are going to fall hard for Noah and want to be besties with Heather.
