From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
Reasons why I should not be drawn to Troy Serrano.
Number one: He’s obnoxious.
Number two: He and I were enemies over a decade ago in high school.
Number three: He’s my friend’s ex-boyfriend.
I could go on and on, really.
When my boss gives me an unwanted assignment and tells me it involves spending time with the grandson of one of our residents—the grandson turns out to be Troy. He’s now as successful as he is undeniably handsome.
Lucky me. Four hours a week of having to deal with his insufferable personality and unsolicited advice.
The only consolation is getting to stare at his annoyingly gorgeous face in between our many arguments.
Eventually, though, we slowly warm to each other and our outings become something I actually look forward to.
What’s happening to me?
Apparently, I misunderstood the assignment, because it certainly didn’t include thinking about Troy when I close my eyes at night, imagining what it would be like with him—just once. All the while hating myself for fantasizing about a guy who’s all wrong for me. A guy whose car I keyed back in the day. (Long story, but he deserved it.)
That’s all this is—a fantasy.
Well, until that one night at the bar.
The night Troy and I run into each other, and all of our pent-up frustration comes barreling out.
Still, I refuse to accept that it means anything.
There’s no way the guy I’m supposed to hate is also the one I can’t live without.
The Assignment by Penelope Ward was really a blast. It was full of emotions. Love, hate, humor ad everything else. That’s what I love about the stories from Penelope. They take you on a rollercoaster of emtions and at the end of the ride you don’t know where your head is.
The same goes for this book. I couldn’t put ir down. I had to read this in one night. Yeah who needs sleep anyway?! There are always some twists and turns you’re not ready for. The author really did an amazing job by transferring the feelings from the characters to the reader. You can feel everything they feel. The writing is perfect. It just flows like a river. Sometimes wild, sometimes calm.
If you know Penelope Ward and read her books, you know that I have no other chance but to leave 5 amazing stars for this book. And I can’t wait for the next one. Although I kinda would like it, if Penelope would write a story togehter with Vi Keeland. It’s been too long…..
