This is a wonderful story of love, friendship and overcoming the past. You will not be able to put this book down until you find out if Penny and Blake can overcome the obstacles that life has thrown in their way. ~ Alpha Book Club

 

If you are looking for something heartwarming to brighten your day, yet give you just enough conflict, this story is definitely for you and I highly recommend it! And the cover of the book couldn't have been more perfect! ~ Books to Breathe

 

This is one book I wish I could have inhabited for a little longer. I just wanted more time with the characters. Go buy this book you shouldn't be disappointed. ~ Devious Book Blog

 

At times, the book was emotionally difficult to read, but it was done with sensitivity and love. I loved the hopeful message it delivers. ~ Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews

Overall Opinion: This touched me emotionally, but I was really disappointed at the ending. I didn't like the way the issues were resolved. I felt like it was all way too easy, and I didn't get nearly enough closure. I also felt like we were just skimming the surface of the characters, but never got really that deep in knowing who they were supposed to be. It had some major potential, but unfortunately I feel like it didn't get there.

**See goodreads.com/NMmomof4 for my full review with spoilers**

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Penny and Blake's story. They meet when Penny arrives as the new kid at a foster group home. The foster parents that run the home are not good people, so they form a bond instantly to help each other through it. As they grow, so does their relationship. They get separated, and are reunited 7 years later at a camp for foster kids. They soon find that their connection is still there -- but of course it can't be that easy. They have some major obstacles, but eventually get their HFN ending.

POV: This alternated between Penny and Blake's POV (with Blake's being primarily flashback scenes).

Overall Pace of Story: Ok. I have a big issue with the abrupt ending. I felt like I was teary in the middle of drama, and then all of a sudden it was over and all wrapped up and tied with a bow. I didn't, however, skim at any time in the book.

Instalove: No. They have known each other since they were 12, so it was a long term development.

H rating: 3 stars. Blake. I felt like he was inconsiderate of Penny's feelings a few times, and i wanted him to just communicate better!

h rating: 3 stars. Penny.

Penny Wilson’s parents were killed in a car accident and she ended up in the Freeman House foster group home when she was twelve years old. Scared and alone, Blake Weston becomes her light in this dark and ugly place. Their bond of survival and friendship blossoms into first love. They escape often to their special place just outside the property of the home to what they call No Man’s Land. Here they are able to plan their future for when they age out at eighteen and are free of Marie and Derek. At sixteen returning to the home from her summer job, Blake is gone and no one will tell Penny where. She holds to the memory of them when everything else in her life is falling apart.
At 23 years old, living with the scars of what happened in Freeman House, Penny spends most of her time alone, unable to bond with others let alone have a boyfriend. In hopes of healing and on the recommendation of her therapist she applies for a summer job at Camp Chance. This is to be her fresh start working with foster kids that were just like her. One summer, a lifetime of possibilities. Sitting across from her at the counselor camp fire meeting is Blake. It has been seven years since he disappeared, and everything from the past that she has working on healing comes rushing back to the surface. Will this be their second chance and can Blake help heal the broken parts inside of her? Or will this be the one thing she can't survive?
This book pulls you in right from the start and keeps you there until the last page. I was unable to put this book down. To Penny, Blake is the one that heals her and makes her feel safe when they are in the foster home. He protects her. To Blake, Penny is his lucky penny and wants to give her the world when they are free of their foster parents.

When I first started reading this book, I felt like it had a lot of potential. The level of emotion right out of the gate really felt like it could carry through the entire plot. I was disappointed when that current grew weaker the more you read.

Penny and Blake were foster siblings from the ages of 12-17, when Blake disappeared from Penny's life without a trace. They had a very strong bond and a young love that you would hope would last forever, Of course, circumstances beyond both of their control tore that bond and love apart, leaving Penny an emotional mess. This sets the tone for the book as a whole.

Through a stroke of chance Penny and Blake are reunited as counselors at a camp for foster kids. Being back around each other brings up the emotions, questions and heartache of the past. When Penny finally feels the walls coming back down around her heart in regards to Blake, he crushes her once again. Disappearing with out a goodbye.

Life after camp is where I became disappointed. Blake has a life that he didn't divulge to Penny. She had to find out about his 'complications' with out any warning. Penny as a character is very weak, in just about every way. IMO the way that Blake treats their 'relationship' while he works out his 'complications' just adds to it. Although his intentions toward Penny are good, he still makes her look like 'the other woman'.

This is my confession: While I am happy with the HEA, I just wish there was more full-circle closure and less of Penny just accepting everything. It just felt very abrupt at the end. Your left with a very 'that's it?' feeling.
