Title: The Crush
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2021



From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone, second-chance story of forbidden love… 
It’s natural to want the one you can’t have. And for as long as I could remember, I’d secretly wanted my brother’s best friend, Jace.
He was six years older and always treated me like the sister he never had.
Fast forward a decade.
We were all in our twenties now. Jace had moved in with my brother, Nathan, and me to help us make ends meet after our parents died.
It was just the three of us—an odd family dynamic.
Living under our roof, Jace was as bossy and protective as ever.
But he certainly didn’t look at me like a sister anymore. That was what made things so complicated.
I was pretty much hot and bothered twenty-four-seven.
And he was torn.
The signs were subtle, at first. Like on movie night, I’d casually rest my leg against his, and he wouldn’t exactly shift away.
Still, I assumed he would never…go there. 
Nathan would kill us.
The knowledge of that wasn’t enough to stop the inevitable, though.
Eventually our slow burn exploded.
But more than the physical attraction, we’d developed a strong connection.
We just couldn’t get caught, right?
That sounded simple.
Until it wasn’t.
This is a story of forbidden love, broken trust, and an unexpected second chance.






Book Review 

Oh how my love for the forbidden, best-friend’s little sister trope was totally met with this one! All I needed was the author and the blurb to know that I was in for a crazy, good ride. THE CRUSH the latest novel by Penelope Ward and it is a really, really good one.

Nathan and Farrah stole my heart from the get go… we are introduced to them in the present, however, most of the book is a flashback to how their relationship came about. I absolutely loved seeing how their attraction for each other was just too strong to avoid forever… the sneaking around, their deep conversations, and the way they absolutely fall head over heels for each was simply amazing. Both characters are extremely likeable… Farrah is strong, genuine, and so sweet… Nathan is HOT, sexy, compassionate, and an all around good guy. It was easy to root for them and it was easy to have your heart inevitably broken when they are eventually found out.

The last part of the book is back in the present and it honestly went from forbidden to second chance romance… this book truly has it all. I definitely recommend! It will hit all the targets that a sexy, contemporary romance should… forbidden, sexy, angsty, and just so GOOD! Read it… you will not be disappointed! ~ read and reviewed by Yesi
