Book Description

This book is recommended for readers over the age of 18 due to strong language and explicit sexual content.

From the author of the #1 bestselling romance, Jake Undone, comes a friends-to-lovers story of longing, passion, betrayal and redemption…with a twist that will rip your heart out.

Skylar was my best friend, but I secretly pined for her. One thing after another kept us apart, and I’ve spent the last decade in fear of losing her forever.

First, it was the cancer, but she survived only to face the unthinkable at my hands. Because of me, she left town. For years, I thought I’d never see her again.

But now she’s back…and living with him.

I don’t deserve her after everything I’ve put her through, but I can’t live without her. This is my last chance because she’s about to make the biggest mistake of her life. I can see it her eyes: she doesn’t love him. She still loves me...which is why I have to stop her before it’s too late.

My Skylar is a STANDALONE story of 99,000 words and a companion to the novel, Jake Undone. It does NOT need to be read in conjunction with any other book.

Review:
Wow... Books like this one are why I read. Books like this don't come around too often. To say I loved it would be an understatement. I ADORED it. From page one until the very last page it kept me captivated, an emotional mess in the best possible way. I couldn't put it down and read it straight through--it was worth a sleepless night.

I have been becoming bored of Coming of Age (NA) books lately and I find myself eyerolling more than I care to admit. My Skylar was a breath of fresh air when the genre IMO was becoming stagnant. I need to put that out there because if you are feeling the same you may not want to dig into this one and that would be a huge mistake.

This was an emotional one. I went through so many tissues, and have red, puffy swollen eyes--but it was worth it. So worth it. I laughed, and I cried, and I laughed some more. GAH!!!! Just a sec--totally fangirling over Penelope right now... o.O

Okay so what was it about?

As the blurb states it's the friends-to-lovers story of Mitch and Skylar. If you read Jake Undone (which I also LOVED) we met Skylar as Nina's friend. I didn't actually remember her until the part came up when she met Nina. You see this novel is a complete standalone, like the other two, so you can read them in any order without fear of spoilers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Breathtaking Contemporary Romance -- A Must Read! June 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Trying to capture in words the essence of this story is as futile as trying to find the magic formula for love. Simply put, this book holds a magical tale that will catch you by surprise, take your breath away, and make you fall in love over and over again.

Skylar and Mitch first met as kids. Mitch's parents were going through a rough patch, and in an effort to shield their son from the worst of it, sent him to his grandmother's house for the summer. But despite their efforts, he knew things were bad, and began tuning out the rest of the world to cope. That is, until he met Skylar. Having experienced a similar disruption in her young life, Skylar was understanding. But more importantly, she was able to bring Mitch out of his shell with her sense of humor and enthusiasm for life. By the end of summer, they were best friends.

Throughout the years, Skylar and Mitch's paths continued to cross. And although the story begins at a pivotal point in adulthood, we discover the full scope of their lives and interactions, as told by both Skylar and Mitch, including their perspectives on the obstacles in their way. Ultimately, these characters never quite let go, and through the storytelling, we learn why. It will pull at your heartstrings, and will make you laugh and cry, because love is messy, complicated, unpredictable... but it is also true bliss. And it will come along when you least expect it.

Along with our main characters, we reconnect with old friends from previous books, and meet up with new characters--some are equally charming, while others are much less so. But all are fully developed, perfectly entwined with the plot, and add meaningful elements to the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book!! June 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
4.5 stars. I really loved this book. I thought Skylar was such a great character in Jake Undone and I was excited to read this story. I will admit that the first half of the book was much different than the second half. The first half was seeing how Mitch and Skylar met and developed a great friendship and eventually became more, and it was beautiful. But knowing something was going to happen to tear them apart really just added such an intensity, the anticipation of it all falling apart, because I loved them together. Seeing him stand by her through her illness, at times just had me clutching my heart. I had such faith in him. I only wish Skylar had the same faith. But low and behold, something happens and the relationship ends, and my heart was broken. I felt both their pain and depression like it was my own. They both make some decisons that you really think they can't come back from. And Penelope Ward had such a twist that I did not see coming, that when it happened I was shocked. Shocked. And pissed and just made me hate a character with a passion. Eventually they find each other again and strike up a friendship. Skylar was seeing someone else at the time but the feelings were still there, because they belonged together. It's a slow burn, but the payoff is phenomenal. What I loved is that even though they fell apart, there was never any malicious intent, and their actions weren't unforgivable. They had to fight for it, but when two people are meant for each other, when they finally find happiness, it's just the best feeling. This was such a great addition to the series and I was so excited that I won an ARC from Penelope Ward I ate this book up. I also have to add, that I loved their mutual friend Davey, he was just the perfect character for some comic relief. Excellent book
