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.
*~*~* 5 Stars *~*~*
I honestly have to say this is by far my favorite book by Penelope. I literally could not put it down. It consumed my life, and I read it in one sitting. The cover is gorgeous of course, but once I read the words inside, Noah captured my heart, and I don’t ever want him to let it go.
Instead of being in college and living out her dream, Heather is taking care of the family business and her mother. She wishes things were different, but she is determined to stick it out for her mom, but that all changes, when Noah walks into her life. Their first encounter is pretty funny, and the more Heather gets to know him, the more she realizes how much she likes him. Noah on the other hand is fighting his feelings. He doesn’t want to hold her back because she is young and needs to experience life. Plus, there are few more things about Noah that Heather doesn’t know just yet, and he plans on keeping it that way. Instead of giving in to his attraction, Noah starts pushing Heather towards her dreams, but deep down, he really wants her too. How can they make it work with so much between them?
Yes, this is a slow burn, but I felt like it was needed, because it made me fall in love with both Heather and Noah even more. She is sweet, cute, and quirky, and he is so serious and moody at times. They really are a perfect match for each other. I loved watching the changes in Noah. Like it literally felt like my heart was smiling. It’s so hard to put into words just how much I loved this book. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars. This is by far the best book I’ve read in a very long time.
