Publisher's summary

From New York Times best-selling author Penelope Ward comes a new stand-alone novel.

The day I showed up to Dax Moody’s sprawling home, I had no idea what was coming. As a traveling massage therapist, I was used to entering the houses of strangers. But this assignment was different from any before it. From the outside, I’d correctly assumed the owner was rich. What I didn’t realize was that he would be younger than I’d imagined, single, stunningly gorgeous, and mysterious.

Despite the fact that Dax had booked a massage, it never actually happened, since our first appointment was unexpectedly cut short by a comedy of errors. Certain I’d never see him again after that day, I’d done nothing but think about the captivating man. To my surprise, he called a second time. That appointment, we talked a lot, developing a stronger connection. But once again, there was no actual massage. The man I now affectionately called “Moody” kept calling me to come back. It took three times before I finally gave him the massage he’d ordered. Let’s just say it was challenging to keep things professional. I was extremely attracted to Dax, and by that time, I was falling hard. Eventually, I’d find out why he’d been so aloof, the reason why he and I could never be together. 

Our story was supposed to end there, but it didn’t. Instead, I was left perpetually longing for a forbidden man.

AN EMOTIONAL HEART Vs HEAD SLO-O-O-O-O-OW-BURN

For Dax and Wren this was a journey filled with difficult decisions that tore at their emotions and heartstrings.. and thank you Ms Ward for second chances. However, for me, their story of chemistry vs duty, desire vs denial, tender vs torment and elemental vs forbidden was a very touching love story filled with a full kaleidoscope of feels. Written by a strong author who is always an auto buy one click instant purchase for me. And, who better to bring this slow-burn to life with all its pain and conflicted passion than two of Audible’s greats.. Sebastian and Andi who, for eight emotionally addictive hours, brought the difficult conversations, the sexual tension, the heartbreak, the highs, the lows and finally the sweet happy ever after ending to life.

Worth a credit? Yes I enjoyed it.. but buy it only if you like a self-imposed forbidden very very very slow-burn because, with this ‘relationship’ centered love story, it’s about the growth of a couple’s feelings towards each other, sacrifice and a battle of head vs heart. And also commitment vs love which, over time, has many ranges and changes.. and challenges.. and holds a wealth of deep-felt emotions.

Ugh…

I am half way… who talks like that to one another? It’s sound more like a fiction… how bad do people stink that they smell them in the bed? Seriously who talks like that again. Seems like author having a hard time writing. Not the best, sounds fake and just not realistic at all. And why every time guy is rich and emotionally not available no imagination…

My Heart

I love that this book didn't feel like something I had listened to before, these characters where wonderful and their story pulled at my heart. I loved that this was also a love story that brought together a brother and a sister and they got the family they never thought they would have. That really tugged at my heart. The narration duo of Sebastian York and Andi Arndt is always a winner and this did not disappoint at all.

What a great Journey !!

Beautifully written and preformed. A very emotional love story with a very unique challenge. I always enjoy PW but this just jumped to the top of my favorites of her work.

Okay

I liked this alright. I don't think it's as good as the rest of her books 🤷‍♀️ It just seemed to be lacking, storyline wise, things either moved too fast, skipped some relationship developments and used weak plot devices. It had some hot moments and was still a good listen, but not the usual 4 or 5 star imo 😕

Loved this emotional rollercoaster!

I had no idea what this book was about when I got it. I just knew that I loved all of the other books by Penelope Ward. And the bonus was having it narrated by Andi Arndt and Sebastian York! The love the main characters had for each other from the start kept me listening while they both had to deal with things in their own way. And Rafe was so awesome! I highly recommend this book!

What a beautiful story

I enjoyed listening to this book. When I first saw it I thought it would be just another millionaire- poor girl book. Don’t get me wrong I love millionaire-poor girl books, but this one was deeper and had a lot of feelings. Very very good.

I hate love triangle

There should have been a disclaimer that there are love triangles in this book or I wouldn’t have bought it. What a waste of money

Close But No Cigar

I kept thinking something would change and the story would get exciting but it never did. The hero never did grow a set of balls and stand up to the rest of the world in defense of the heroin. It was pretty far fetched that everyone's life seed to be controlled by a 14-yr-old. The entire book was a real dud. Don't waste your time or money.
