Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.
From New York Times Bestselling Author, Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
Sharing a summer house with a hot-as-hell roommate should be a dream come true, right?
Not when it’s Justin…the only person I’d ever loved…who now hates me.
When my grandmother died and left me half of the house on Aquidneck Island, there was a catch: the other half would go to the boy she helped raise.
The same boy who turned into the teenager whose heart I broke years ago.
The same teenager who’s now a man with a hard body and a hardass personality to match.
I hadn’t seen him in years, and now we’re living together because neither one of us is willing to give up the house.
The worst part? He didn’t come alone.
I’d soon realize there’s a thin line between love and hate. I could see through that smug smile. Beneath it all…the boy is still there. So is our connection.
The problem is…now that I can’t have Justin, I’ve never wanted him more.
What happens when the one you want is the only one you can’t have?
It was set in stone. Elle and I were getting married. After years of rebelling against everything good and wholesome, I finally gave in and took up with a nice girl.
After a long-distance relationship, I moved into her family’s guesthouse so we could spend time together in the months before the wedding.
Elle was unlike anyone I'd ever been with. She was so innocent, and I had to respect her choice to wait until after we were married to have sex.
I’d accepted that as my fate--even learned to control my desires.
Until I met her…the one.
That was when restraint became a problem…especially since “the one” wasn’t Elle.
It was her sister, Evangeline.
And I was screwed.
Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel.
