About this ebook

Friendships and family abound during a week of love, laughter, and happily ever afters. Catch up with your favorite characters and enjoy Bones and Sarah’s wedding while falling in love with the newest Whiskey-world couple, Penny Wilson and Scott Beckley, in this Whiskey series novella.

When everything you want is right in front of you, but it’s still out of reach…

Penny Wilson has a successful business, more friends than a girl could ask for, and a boyfriend she’s madly and passionately in love with. Scott Beckley is honest, loyal, hands down the best lover on the planet, and absolutely gaga over his nieces and nephews. Scott’s a keeper…as long as Penny doesn’t ever want to hear those three magical words that would take their relationship to the next level. Scott escaped abusive parents at seventeen and was forced to find his way alone in the world. Even though it’s been more than a decade and he’s reunited with his estranged sisters and built a good life in Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, he’s still tortured by his past. Penny knows he loves her with everything he has, but for a girl who wants a family and a guy who is afraid of having one, love might not be enough.

In for a Penny is a quick but absolutely amazing story by Melissa Foster! The story of Penny and Scott starts off with a scene on his boat that will make you blush!!! Scott had a horrible childhood and has always thought he wasn’t capable of love. Then he meets Penny who owns Luscious Licks, an ice cream store, and he realizes just how unique she is. Penny has always dreamed of her happily every after. A husband and children, but Scott has absolutely no plans of ever getting married and turning out like his abusive father. But sometimes, life doesn’t go as planned! If you’ve ever read any of the other books in the Whiskeys series, then you’ll have met a lot of the characters in this story. It’s always great to see how everyone is doing and what’s going on in their lives. And of course, the beautiful wedding that takes place. Melissa Foster always writes from the heart. Her stories will bring all your emotions to the surface. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll fall in love with the worlds she creates!

Back with the Whiskey’s and a warm, emotional, enjoyable short romance. You jump straight into the hotness of this one, so be choosy where you begin to read it! Penny and Scott have been together for several months and are bordering on becoming a serious relationship, which is causing each of them to worry. Scott had allowed himself to fall for Penny, but due to his past weighing him down like a tonne of stones, he thought he had known better. But it was Penny, the girl who had captured his heart and soul. Penny knew all about Scott’s past, understanding why he always held back so much, yet really beginning to need more. They were both so scared to move their love to the next level even though deep inside they wanted it so badly. You could feel the desperation and need to move forward yet being forced backwards with every step. Will Scott allow himself the happiness he deserves so much? Of course, we also got to enjoy the lovely wedding of Sarah and Bones, with all the cute littles ones dressed up in all their best. This was deliciously romantic, wrapped up in happiness, love, celebrations, and as always surrounded by family and friends.

***5 Stars*** Sweet, swoony, heart breaking and heartmelt...toss in a good dose of heat and a few sniffly and teary eyed moments and this novella definitely hit the spot. I’ve been crossing my toes that Penny would get her own HEA from the first time she appeared in the series, as well as Scott, but Penny has ice cream *shrugs* so to say I was thrilled that they were getting a novella is an understatement and this baby definitely gave me all I could have asked for and more. I loved how well they flowed together and just how much they truly admired each other. The hitch in their journey was heartbreaking all around because they were both so wrecked by it, but I loved how they worked through it and got a true HEA. This was a great read and can be read as a stand-alone, though I will always recommend that you read the series in order ~ or at least a few of them, if you want to dive in here, you will get a great intro to the Whiskey’s and will no doubt want to read more about them. ~ Copy provided by the author & voluntarily reviewed ~
