Penelope Ward könyvei a rukkolán

Penelope Ward - Jake ​Understood (angol)
A ​different side to the story: Jake's side. "We're getting a new roommate," they said. I thought nothing of it...until she walked in the door. Her hand trembled in mine as she looked at me with fearful eyes. My entire world spun on its axis. Nina... It was a mismatch made in heaven: innocent girl from the boonies moves in with tattooed, pierced, badboy engineer. I came up with a bet, a plan to tutor her in math and coach her through her phobias. What I wasn't betting on was becoming addicted to her. But I was living a double life on weekends, and once she found out about it, she'd be gone. I had to protect myself and that meant one thing: I couldn't fall in love. Author's note: This is NOT an exact retelling of Jake Undone. While pivotal scenes from Jake Undone are retold from Jake's point of view, Jake Understood is its own story that includes ALL-NEW material from both the past and present time where Jake Undone left off. It can STAND ALONE, but if both books are read, should follow Jake Undone for the best reading experience. Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.

Penelope Ward - Jake ​Understood – Jake kitárulkozik
Csak ​annyit mondtak, hogy új lakótársunk lesz. Ennyiben is maradtunk… míg be nem lépett az ajtón. A keze remegett a markomban, és rettegő szemmel végigmért. Az egész világom a feje tetejére állt. Nina… Az ellentétek vonzzák egymást: a külvárosi lány beköltözik egy tetovált, piercinges, semmirekellő mérnökhöz. Fogadást ajánlottam: felzárkóztatom matekból, és kikúrálom a fóbiáiból. De azzal nem számoltam, hogy ráfüggök. Ám hétvégenként kettős életet éltem, és amint rájött, faképnél hagyott. Meg kellett védenem magam, aminek megvolt az egyetlen feltétele: nem eshettem szerelembe. Szerzői megjegyzés: Ez NEM a Jake megadja magát teljes újramesélése. Noha bizonyos kulcsjeleneteit újraélhetjük Jake szemszögéből, a Jake kitárulkozik önálló történet, benne VADONATÚJ részekkel a múltból és a Jake megadja magát utáni időkből. ÖNÁLLÓAN is olvasható, de a két könyv együttes elolvasása adja a teljes élményt. Kendőzetlen szexuális jelenetek és szókimondó nyelvezet. Csak tizennyolc éven felülieknek!

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Well ​Played
From ​New York Times Bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes a new, sexy standalone novel. It all started with a bet. When my young son inherited half of his great grandfather’s historic inn, I decided to move us both to the place where I grew up. Notice I said half of the Inn. The other half now belonged to Levi Miller, the famous quarterback who had other ideas about what we should do with the property. We won’t mention that I accidentally injured him during our first meeting, causing him to get eight stitches. You could say we got off on the wrong foot. We bickered a lot as we both moved into the property while we figured things out. He wanted to unload the rundown place which, admittedly, needed a lot of work. I wanted to restore The Palm Inn to its original beauty and re-open it as a bed and breakfast. We couldn’t agree on anything. So Levi made me a proposal. One he thought I would surely lose. If I could sell out the place by the time he had to leave for training at the end of summer, he would back off and let me run it. But in the weeks that followed, we got more than we bargained for while we were living under the same roof. Levi and I got closer, and before I knew it, my nightly fantasies about the brawny Adonis became a reality. Not to mention, he was so great with my son. We were in over our heads in more ways than one. Because not only was he the last man on Earth I should be falling for because of our deal, but Levi was also my ex’s older brother. And now the inn was the least of my problems.

Penelope Ward - The ​Aristocrat
The ​one that got away. Every girl has one, right? Mine was a charming, British aristocrat who turned my world upside down one summer. From the moment I first spotted Leo in the distance through my binoculars, I’d been captivated. I certainly never expected to find a man showering outside of the property across the bay in his birthday suit. Then I noticed his housemate staring back at me with binoculars of his own—watching me watching Leo. That made for an interesting conversation starter when I inevitably ran into them. Turned out, the handsome Brits were only renting that house for the summer in my seaside town. Leo and I formed an instant connection, even though we were technically opposites by all appearances. I taught him how to dig for clams, and he taught me that not all wealthy and powerful guys are pretentious. Despite knowing he was totally wrong for me, I couldn’t seem to stay away. It was a wild and crazy few months. And before I knew it, we’d fallen in love. We both had one wish: more time together. But Leo had obligations back home. He lived a life I’d never fit into. And I was going to law school. So, we decided to end it and never look back. A part of me always felt like I’d let my soulmate walk away. I believed our story was over. Until five years later when he sent me a letter that shook me to my core. I’d thought my world was turned upside down that first summer? Well, I knew nothing yet.

Penelope Ward - The ​Crush
From ​New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone, second-chance story of forbidden love… It’s natural to want the one you can’t have. And for as long as I could remember, I’d secretly wanted my brother’s best friend, Jace. He was six years older and always treated me like the sister he never had. Fast forward a decade. We were all in our twenties now. Jace had moved in with my brother, Nathan, and me to help us make ends meet after our parents died. It was just the three of us—an odd family dynamic. Living under our roof, Jace was as bossy and protective as ever. But he certainly didn’t look at me like a sister anymore. That was what made things so complicated. I was pretty much hot and bothered twenty-four-seven. And he was torn. The signs were subtle, at first. Like on movie night, I’d casually rest my leg against his, and he wouldn’t exactly shift away. Still, I assumed he would never…go there. Nathan would kill us. The knowledge of that wasn’t enough to stop the inevitable, though. Eventually our slow burn exploded. But more than the physical attraction, we’d developed a strong connection. We just couldn’t get caught, right? That sounded simple. Until it wasn’t. This is a story of forbidden love, broken trust, and an unexpected second chance.

Le fastidia que la tome con ella porque no quiere estar allí, le fastidia que traiga chicas a su habitación, pero lo que más le fastidia es cómo reacciona su cuerpo cuando lo tiene delante… Al principio pensó que lo único bueno que tenía eran sus abdominales perfectos y sus tatuajes; que no había nada más que un físico, pero se engañaba, había más, mucho más, y se le escapaba de las manos… Una noche, las cosas empezaron a cambiar entre ellos y llegaron a un punto crítico. ¿Cómo hacer frente a estos sentimientos? ¿Podría Elec romperle el corazón? Greta tenía que tomar una decisión… Y esta determinación podría cambiar sus vidas para siempre.

Penelope Ward - My ​Skylar – Drága Skylar
Ő ​volt a legjobb barátom, de titokban epekedtem érte. Egyik dolog jött a másik után, ami elválasztott bennünket, így félelemben töltöttem az elmúlt évtizedet, hogy örökre elveszítem Skylart. Először jött a rák, amit túlélt ugyan, ám azután elmondhatatlan dolgokon ment keresztül miattam. Ezért elhagyta a várost. Éveken át azt hittem, hogy nem láthatom soha többé.

Látom a tekintetén, hogy nem szereti. Még mindig engem szeret… éppen ezért kell megállítanom, mielőtt túl késő lenne. Forró és szenvedélyes, „barátságból lett szerelem” regénye – olyan fordulattal, amitől összeszorul a szíved… A My Skylar – Drága Skylar önálló regény, de kapcsolódik a Jake Undone – Jake megadja magát történetéhez.

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Not ​Pretending Anymore
Finding ​a good roommate through a classified ad isn’t as easy as it sounds. I was starting to lose hope. Until a knock at my door came and God answered my prayers. Except…uh…wrong prayer, God. I’d definitely requested the big guy find me a drop-dead gorgeous man on more than one occasion…just not as my roommate. Declan Tate talked me into interviewing him anyway. While he was amusing and charismatic, I wouldn’t have been comfortable living with a man, so I regretfully declined. Then cupcakes showed up at my door—freshly baked by Declan and just as sinfully delicious as he was. You could say he was persistent. I eventually folded. It wasn’t like I had another viable candidate anyway. Plus, I was interested in someone else. And Declan was into another woman. So it wasn’t like anything would happen romantically. After he moved in, the two of us became the best of friends. We even started to give each other advice on getting our crushes to notice us. Eventually, Declan concocted an idea: we should pretend to be a couple to make our love interests jealous. I was hesitant, but went along with it anyway. To my utter shock, his crazy plan worked. Now I was dating the supposed man of my dreams, and my best friend had the woman of his. But there was one problem. I couldn’t stop thinking about Declan. Those feelings we were trying to fake? Yeah…I wasn’t pretending anymore.

Penelope Ward - Vi Keeland - Dear ​Bridget, I Want You
From ​the New York Times Bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Mister Moneybags comes a sexy new standalone novel. Dear Bridget, I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. So, here goes. We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England. But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways. I want you. The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke. So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime. No questions asked. Think about it. Or don’t. Whatever you choose. It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway. ―Simon

Penelope Ward - When ​August Ends
What ​do you do when a sexy, older man moves into your family’s summer rental? Well, apparently, you make a fool of yourself—over and over. Things didn’t exactly get off on the right foot with Noah Cavallari. Our first encounter was embarrassing, to say the least. But despite that, I found myself waking up every day with a newfound energy. Nothing exciting ever happened on the lake—not until Noah moved into the small boathouse on our property. He’d booked it for the entire summer…and I was still trying to figure out why. When my mother became ill, I inherited the responsibility of making sure our guests were well taken care of. I should have been in college. Instead, I was living my best life…as a maid. Dark, handsome, and mysterious, everything about Noah screamed forbidden. I knew he was just passing through town for the summer. I knew he was probably too old for me. Yet, I was drawn to him. Not to mention, he tried to save my life when he mistakenly thought I was drowning. I wanted him and made no secret of it. His own attempts to warn me away soon gave way to late-night moonlight chats by the lake. We were slowly easing into a friendship that was gearing up to explode into something I might not recover from. Because he’s leaving at the end of the summer. And I have no idea what I’ll do when August ends.

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Hate ​Notes
It ​all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there. Because I’ve since found out something else about Mr. Starry-Eyed. He’s arrogant, cynical, and demanding. I should know. Thanks to a twist of fate, he’s my new boss. But that’s not going to stop me from discovering the story behind his last love letter. A love letter that did not result in a happily ever after. But that story is nothing compared to the one unfolding between us. It’s getting hotter, sweeter, and more surprising than anything I could have imagined. Something new. But I have no idea how this one is going to end . . .

Penelope Ward - Vi Keeland - Stuck-Up ​Suit
From ​the New York Times Bestselling authors of Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel. It started out like any other morning on the train. Until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle. He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world. Who did the stuck-up suit think he was…God? Actually, he looked like a God. That was about it. When his stop came, he got up suddenly and left. So suddenly, he dropped his phone on the way out. I might have picked it up. I might have gone through all of his photos and called some of the numbers. I might have held onto the mystery man’s phone for days—until I finally conjured up the courage to return it. When I traipsed my ass across town to his fancy company, he refused to see me. So, I left the phone on the empty desk outside the arrogant jerk’s office. I might have also left behind a dirty picture on it first though. I didn’t expect him to text back. I didn’t expect our exchanges to be hot as hell. I didn’t expect to fall for him—all before we even met. The two of us couldn’t have been any more different. Yet, you know what they say about opposites. When we finally came face to face, we found out opposites sometimes do more than attract—we consumed each other. Nothing could have prepared me for the ride he took me on. And I certainly wasn’t prepared for where I’d wind up when the ride was over. All good things must come to an end, right? Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

Penelope Ward - Vi Keeland - Playboy ​Pilot
From ​the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel. Money or love? Which would you choose? You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it's an easy decision. For me, it's not. Did I mention it's a lot of money? A hell of a lot. I needed to go far away to think it through. As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation. Then, he left. I thought I'd never see him again. But fate had other plans. Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight. The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed. Carter was dangerous and always on the move. Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary. He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places. A bevvy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter's reputation were never far behind. I didn't know what to believe. But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot. At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride. All good things must come to an end, right? Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

Penelope Ward - Jaded ​and Tyed
The ​first time I met Jade Jameson, I lost my words and accidentally dropped a beer bottle, smashing it to the ground. The Broadway star sister of my brother’s wife had paid us a surprise visit on Christmas. Quite simply, she was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen; I was mesmerized. I’d made a fool of myself, though, and to make matters worse, my girlfriend was standing right there when it all happened. Jade went back to New York, and we didn’t cross paths again for a year—until one night when a Facebook notification lit up my screen, setting off a chain of events that would change my life forever.

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Dirty ​Letters
I’d ​never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet. Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldn’t have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break. Until one day it did. Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one—one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing. Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person. Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more—more Griff, in the flesh—so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love. But what I found could change everything.

Penelope Ward - Mack ​Daddy
From ​New York Times bestselling author, Penelope Ward, comes a sexy, STANDALONE second-chance romance. They called him Mack Daddy. No, seriously, his name was Mack. Short for Mackenzie. Thus, the nickname. Perfect, right? So was he: perfect. The perfect physical male specimen. At the private school where I taught, Mack Morrison was the only man around in a sea of women. Everyone wanted a piece of the hot single father of the sweet little boy. I was riddled with jealousy, because they didn’t know that—to me—he was much more. They didn’t know about our past. He’d chosen my school for his son on purpose, because Mack and I, we had unfinished business. As my friend Lorelai so eloquently put it: “Unfinished business between two people who are clearly attracted to each other is like an eternal case of blue balls.” And I was suffering in pain from my case. I was still intensely attracted to Mack. I tried to resist him, immersing myself further into a relationship with another man just to protect my heart. Not to mention, getting involved with a parent was strictly against school rules. But seeing Mack day in and day out was breaking me down. And soon I might be breaking all the rules. Author's note – Told in alternating points of view, Mack Daddy is a full-length standalone novel.

Penelope Ward - Drunk ​Dial
From ​New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him. Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions. I didn’t think he’d call me back. I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become. Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets. Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake. A complete STANDALONE.

Penelope Ward - Gentleman ​Nine
From ​New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel. Growing up, the three of us were friends. He was the nerd. I was the playboy. She was the beauty. Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. He lied. I went off to college, and he got the girl. Amber never knew how I felt. They were together for years—before he broke her heart. Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room. Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men. One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings. Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity. Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message. She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.) Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel. When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she was stunned to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse.

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Hate ​Notes - Adok-kapok
Ez ​volt a leggyönyörűbb szerelmes levél, amit valaha olvasott. Bárcsak neki írták volna! Minden egy esküvői ruhába varrt titokzatos kék üzenettel kezdődött. Valami kék. A sosem viselt menyasszonyi ruhámat mentem eladni egy használtruhaboltba. Ekkor találtam meg egy másik menyasszony „valami régijét”. Egy lélegzetelállító, tollas, egyedi tervezésű ruha bélésébe volt tűzve a legszebb üzenet, amit valaha olvastam: „Köszönöm, hogy valóra váltottad minden álmom.” A kék levélpapíron dombornyomással a Reed Eastwood név szerepelt, aki nyilvánvalóan a földkerekség legromantikusabb férfija lehetett. És mint kiderítettem, a legvonzóbb is. Bárcsak itt véget értek volna az igaz szerelemmel kapcsolatos képzelgéseim! Mert azóta megtudtam egyet s mást Mr. Romantikáról. Arrogáns, cinikus és lekezelő. Én aztán tudom! A sors fintorának köszönhetően ráadásul még az új főnököm is. De ez nem fog megakadályozni abban, hogy kiderítsem, mi a története az utolsó szerelmes levelének. Annak a szerelmes levélnek, aminek nem a „boldogan éltek, amíg meg nem haltak” lett a vége. Az a történet azonban semmi ahhoz képest, ami köztünk van kibontakozóban. Egyre forróbb, csábítóbb és meglepőbb – őrjítőbb, mint bármi, amit el tudtam volna képzelni. Valami új. De fogalmam sincs, hogyan fog végződni… Hagyd, hogy magával ragadjon!

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Rebel ​Heart - Lázadó szív
Rush ​és Gia története folytatódik a Rebel Heir – Lázadó örökös érdekfeszítő lezárása után. Hogyan szúrj el egy szuper nyarat a Hampton-vidéken: Feküdj le a főnököddel. Pipa. Verd el az összes pénzed egy albérletre, amit nem engedhetnél meg magadnak. Pipa. Hogyan hagyd ott nyár végén azt a férfit, akibe beleszerettél: …Majd szólok, ha rájöttem. Vagy legalábbis úgy tűnik. Folytasd a történetet az akció, a dráma és a feszültség kellős közepén!

Penelope Ward - Vi Keeland - Cocky ​Bastard
He ​was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska. A sexy, cocky, Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive. When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually-tense nights in hotels and taking unplanned detours. My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense. I wanted him, but Chance wouldn’t make a move. I thought he wanted me too, but something was holding him back.

Penelope Ward - Love ​Online
From ​New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel. We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind. Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary. Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out. From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed. She was an addiction. At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise. Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman. But I couldn’t really have her. I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her. So I took a chance. And that was when our love story really began.

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Mister ​Moneybags
A ​new standalone from New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. I met Bianca in an elevator. She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck. The beautiful, raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed. She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she’d dubbed “Mister Moneybags”—her afternoon appointment. Bianca told me how much she hated Dex’s type—snobby, over educated, silver- spooned men who didn't appreciate the simple things in life. So, after the elevator finally started moving again, I cancelled the interview and let her believe I was someone I wasn’t—a bike messenger named Jay. I loved the way she looked at the fake me and didn't want it to end. I began dating her as “Jay”—all the while letting her interview the real me over email. I didn’t expect that our chemistry online would be just as hot. I didn’t expect the mess I’d gotten myself into. I didn’t expect that Jay and Dex would fall in love with her. And she was falling for two men. Only, both men were me. And when she found out, we were both going to lose her. Nothing could have prepared me for that day. And I certainly wasn't prepared for what came after. All good things must come to an end, right? Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Szívtipró ​pilóta
Pénz ​vagy szerelem? Melyiket válasszuk? Az olvasó fejben talán azonnal megválaszolja a kérdést, gondolván: ez pofonegyszerű. Számomra viszont nem az. Említettem, hogy egy csomó pénzről van szó? Rengeteg pénzről! El kell utaznom valahová, hogy ezt átgondoljam. Hirtelen ötlettől vezérelve útnak indultam, de amikor a repülőtér várótermében összefutottam a szexi Carterrel, a dolgok más irányt vettek. Túlfűtött beszélgetésbe elegyedtünk, aztán ő elhúzott. Azt hittem, többé nem találkozunk. A sors azonban másként rendelte. Meglepetés! Carter veszélyes pasi, és folyton ide-oda repül. Mágnesként vonzottuk egymást, de tudtam, hogy a dolog csak átmeneti lehet. Főleg, amikor meghallottam az előéletéről szóló pletykákat. De rákattantam a pasira, és semmi más nem számított. Tartottam tőle, hogy ebből óriási pofára esés lesz, mert valahogy a lelkem mélyén mégis arra vágytam, hogy én legyek az, aki megzabolázza ezt a szívtipró pilótát. A legkevesebb, amit elmondhatok, hogy valóban a hetedik mennyországba repített. De egyszer minden jó dolog véget ér, nem igaz? Csakhogy a mi kalandunk olyan véget ért, amire egyáltalán nem számítottam.

Vi Keeland - Penelope Ward - Park ​Avenue Player - Szerelem a Park Avenue-n
Átlagos ​napnak indult, aztán megtörtént a baleset. A férfi, akivel összekoccantam, drága autót vezetett, és lélegzetelállítóan jóképű volt. Nagy kár, hogy egyben egy igazi seggfej is. Összevesztünk, hogy melyikünk hibázott, és azon is, hogy milyen lekezelő mondatok hagyták el száját. Végül megérkezett a rendőrség, mi pedig mentünk az utunkra, a biztosítótársaságokra hagyva a helyzet tisztázását. Nekem amúgy is oda kellett érnem arra az állásinterjúra, ami miatt annyira izgatott voltam. Ám az izgalom abban a pillanatban vált csalódottsággá, amikor megláttam, kihez is mentem interjúra. A koccanásos pasashoz. Upsz! Persze hogy nem kaptam meg az állást. A gond csak az volt, hogy nagyon meg akartam. Pontosabban, szükségem volt rá. Ezért, bár Hollis LaCroix pont annyira volt ijesztő, mint sármos, visszamentem hozzá, hátha ki tudom könyörögni, hogy adjon még egy esélyt. Gondolod, hogy lesz egy része a történetnek, amikor szerelmesek leszünk, majd boldogan élünk, amíg meg nem halunk, ugye? Hát, az élet szép kis csavart labdákat tud dobni. És amit mi kaptunk, arra egyáltalán nem számítottam. Merülj el a történetünkben!

Penelope Ward - Stepbrother ​Dearest
You’re ​not supposed to want the one who torments you. When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be. I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here. I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room. But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him. At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. Then, things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night. Just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California. It had been years since I’d seen Elec. When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again. And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane. I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken.
