Description

From New York Times best-selling author Penelope Ward comes a new stand-alone, 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 20s 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 24/7. 

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.

Excellent

I absolutely loved this book! Penelope Ward is amazing at writing romance books that give you all the feels. The narrators did an amazing job on this one. I loved reading about both Farrah and Jace’s characters.

I have a new Crush

Jace and Farrah's story was great. I really felt both their happiness and their pain throughout. I couldn't help but fall in love with Jace after hearing about him through Farrah's eyes.
Andi and Sebastian, once again, did a fantastic job with narration. My fave duo.

I CRIED REAL TEARS!!!

I felt all the hurt and pain in this one and I loved every moment in it. It was the story I was looking for. The story I needed! Andi and Sebastian were the best.

Another heart tugging second chance romance

Amazing story about young love, crushes, chemistry, secrets, loss, forgiveness and hope. Jace has been Nathan's best friend since they were kids. Farrah has had a crush on him since she was six. When Farrah was in 14 she lost both parents, an accident that Jace thankfully escaped with his life. Jace left town for a while and when he comes back he moves in with Nathan and his now 21 year old, beautiful sister. Slowly the chemistry between Jace and Farrah is obvious but Jace's friendship with Nathan is on the line.
The story is entertaining, a steamy slowburn, and emotional. Again, Sebastian York and Andi Arnt made it awesome.

Enjoyed love narrators

I saw this new audiobook and new that I would enjoy the storyline. But it was the narrators that cinched the purchase. Two of my favourites!
I like brothers best friend or best friends brother storylines and this one did not disappoint. I enjoyed the relationships in this book.

Crushing hard!!!

Wow...just wow!! Penelope Ward has done it again...this story is breathtakingly beautiful! She took us on a wild ride with so many highs and lows. I was immediately drawn in and literally couldn’t stop listening. I never wanted the story to end. The characters were lovable and relatable, and I felt like I was a part of the story. Ward broke my heart before sewing it back together. Forbidden love. Brother’s best friend. Second chances. True love prevails. All the feels!!! And the powerhouse narration duo of Andi Arndt and Sebastian York. 5 stars ⭐️ all around! Absolutely worth your money/credit and your time 🙌🙌🙌

worth listening to

I’m all for forbidden loves, but the only part I really didn’t like was how they treated her as a child. she’s 21, not a child. I don’t get the overly protective sibling story line, it’s cringy to me.

WOW just WOW

I did not expect the emotions involved in their story. It had loss, grief, jealousy, love, steamy sex, friendships and of course there had to be an a** in there. LOL. Jas and Farrah had to work at it to establish a healthy relationship. Hearts had to be broken and mended to come to a good and happy place. Of course the narration was stellar as usual. You did it again Penelope.. Thanks for another great listen. Yes worth a credit.

Not bad.

This was really tough for me considering I love Penelope Ward's books but this was a little flat for me. Now, the storyplot is still pleasant yet predictable, great & well-written sex scenes, & interesting outcome for their love. This is a mixture of forbidden love, in love with brother's best friend, and second chance romance which was quite clever if you ask me! I just didn't feel that connection between the 2 main characters, Jace & Farrah. I like it but I didn't love it. I just think it was still about inflauation v.s. love but that's truly my opinion. Perhaps if we had more intimate moments with them will kick it a notch for becoming true love. Overall, This would be a great escape for a "no cheating" & HEA book. I finished this audiobook in one sitting and great narration as usual, FYI.

Anticlimactic

I enjoy second chance romances a lot. But after all the build up, it just felt like the ending wrapped up so quickly. I would've preferred to see more time where Farrah could work on rebuilding her trust for Jace. It just seems like it only took one booty call for everything to be fixed, and I didn't like that.

performance was great, as always.
