#ReviewTour ~~ The Day He Came Back by Penelope Ward
THE DAY HE CAME BACK IS LIVE!
A Standalone Contemporary Romance
New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author
It was the summer of my life.
I’d met the guy of my dreams.
Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity employer—and very much off-limits.
But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be careful.
He never treated me as his mother did—like hired help.
Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and loved me harder than I’d ever been loved in my life.
What a summer it was.
Until it all ended—badly.
I was never supposed to see Gavin again.
That didn’t stop me from thinking about him every day for ten years.
I knew little about his life now, just that he was an entrepreneur living an ocean away.
When a twist of fate had me working again in the very place our love affair started a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of time before I might see him again.
But I wasn’t prepared.
What if he hated me?
What if he loved someone else now?
I wasn’t prepared for all the unknowns.
And most of all, I wasn’t prepared for today to be the day he came back.
Sandy’s 4.5 blushes
The whole time I was reading it was like I was watching a Lifetime movie in my head. Let’s be clear – I love Lifetime movies! I blew through this book in four hours. Once I started reading, I was hooked and couldn’t stop.
Summer, young love, a rich boy and a girl from the other side of the tracks and families determined to keep them apart. It all sounds very Romeo and Juliet and it is in a lot of ways.
Raven is a smart and sassy girl that has dreams of being a nurse. Her mother is the longtime housekeeper for the Masterson family so Raven takes a job there for the summer.
Gavin is a golden boy with every advantage and privilege that money can buy. Yet, he’s so thoughtful, sweet, swoony and not at all the stuck up rich boy.
These two are instantly attracted to each other and pursue a relationship in secret. Of course, it doesn’t stay secret and Raven is forced into making a decision that will have long-reaching consequences for them both.
Ten years. Penelope Ward makes ten years feel like a blink. The suck, the sweet, the heat, the longing and the heartache. She lays it all out so beautifully that we live it along with them.
The Day He Came Back asks the question, does romantic love trump the bonds of family? The angst factor is WAY high and I loved every word. It is the perfect summer read, beach read, rainy day read, any time read.
Louisa’s 4.5 Blush Review
I am the forever fan of Penelope Ward books. She gives us stories that keep up reading for hours and hours.
The Day He Cam back is a rich boy/poor girl story with a second chance romance thrown in. As teens Gavin and Raven have an undeniable pull to each other. They just click from the moment they meet. Raven knows it’s best to not start anything with Gavin but the attraction is hard to deny. As she suspected it wouldn’t end well.
Fast forward 10 years and Gavin is back and Raven is now caring for Gavin’s sick father. The past/present and dual POV give this book the complete story that I needed and craved.
There is so much more to this story than just falling in love, again. There are secrets and forgiveness that heal you.
One of my new favorite Penelope books.
P.S. Penelope -you win for best cover models because this cover is freaking gorgeous!
