These two just know how to write... they are each authors I adored but together they are pure dynamite...
They just nail banter and really write LOL moments, yet tug at your heartstrings and draw out real emotions... like no other...
‘Park Avenue Player’ by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland is a standalone contemporary romance, told in dual POV that hits all the right cords... I was smiling, laughing, swooning but crying also... it truly is the whole package...
Elodie and Hollis meet in the most unconventional way - they get into a fender bender. Moments later it turns out Elodie is the one being interviewed to be his niece Hailey (who is guardian for) nanny.
This story of Elodie and Hollis is humorous, quirky, romantic, and just when you think you are safe - Wham! the emotional angst that I have come to expect from these authors hits hard... From the very first meet-cute with the car accident to the emotional and hard-won happily ever after... it is one of my favourite reads of the year.
The journey you take as a reader is filled with everything you could ask for from a romance novel and so much more... Lots of sexual tension and attraction follow, along with some crazy and funny moments. Be ready for the cameo of a certain goat! Also, Huey the cockatoo will steal your heart...
Each of the books I have read from these authors, individually or co-written, almost always has some serious twist or deep emotional message to convey within the web of the story and this one is no different...
‘He looked truly pained. “I’m sorry I’ve let my issues ruin the best thing that’s happened to me in a very long time. I understand why you’re not able to trust what I’m saying right now. My word means nothing. I get that. It’s actions that count.” He pointed to his chest. “But if you could see inside of me right now, you would know there is no doubt left, no more hesitation. I’m ready to do this, Elodie. But proving that is going to have to happen day by day. And I’m up for the challenge. In fact, it starts now.” “What exactly are you starting?” He looked at me with an intensity I’d never witnessed in him before. “Being the man you deserve.”’
I absolutely adored ‘Park Avenue Player’! Enjoy.
