Présentation de l'éditeur


From the New York Times bestselling author of Stepbrother Dearest, comes a friends-to-lovers story of longing, passion, betrayal and redemption...with a twist that will rip your heart out.

Skylar was my best friend, but I secretly pined for her. One thing after another kept us apart, and I've spent the last decade in fear of losing her forever.

First, it was the cancer, but she survived only to face the unthinkable at my hands. Because of me, she left town. For years, I thought I'd never see her again.

But now she's back...and living with him.

I don't deserve her after everything I've put her through, but I can't live without her. This is my last chance because she's about to make the biggest mistake of her life. I can see it her eyes: she doesn't love him. She still loves me...which is why I have to stop her before it's too late.

My Skylar is a STANDALONE story of 99,000 words and a companion to the novel, Jake Undone. It does NOT need to be read in conjunction with any other book.

This book is recommended for readers over the age of 18 due to strong language and explicit sexual content.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A beautiful gem discovered by happenstance 7 juin 2015
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
"My Skylar" by Penelope Ward was for me a beautiful discovery by happenstance.. I love reading, and I am constantely looking for stories that will move me, blow my mind and leave a lasting impression in my heart.. And I can't express how happy I am when I find a gem.. it's what happened with "My Skylar". I just finished reading this book early this morning - I just couldn't put it down - and I am still so overwhelmed.. the beauty of Mitch and Skylar's love truly overwhelmed me.. "My Skylar" is absolutely breathtaking.. There was a long time I didn't feel a story the way I felt this one.. I went through so many emotions during this journey.. I laughed so much because of Seamus, I also cried like a baby (not so many books managed to bring tears in my eyes), I felt frustrated with Skylar but I deeply fell in love with the characters of this book.. the twists in their journey showed once again that every actions and decisions have consequences that change your live forever..
"My Skylar" is an absolutely breathtaking and unforgettable love story.. I cherish this book very much and it will join my very favorite ones in my bookshelves.. A must read, and I still wonder how I didn't discover it sooner !!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 So Emotional 5 janvier 2015
Par D. Claire
Format:Format Kindle
Third part of the series Gemini. Following "Gemini" and "Jake Undone". All books can be read independantly though, since they're more like spin-offs than followings.
I become to love Penelope Ward writing, discovered with "Stepbrother Dearest". I really like her style, the way she has to make her characters evolve with time.
Usually stories are happening within 1 or 2 years, but with this book, we learn about the characters from their childhood and during 15 years.... The way it's written though, makes us anticipates what's going to happen. I couldn't stop reading, spent almost a complete night on it !
Skylar was introduced in "Jake Undone", and she's so strong at 15. Then ten years later, life has taken its toll, and she's full of doubt, fear, uncertainty. It's really sad to see what she's become : kind of an empty shell.
Mitch is her childhood friend, her longtime boyfriend. This guy is so devoted it gets painfull to see them drift apart. I sometimes wanted to shout "don't do it, don't do it", like a child on a live show.
I don't want to spoil the story, but the magic of this book, is you really want to know what happened, and what will happen, and how.
Definitely 5 stars for me.

Wow... Books like this one are why I read. Books like this don't come around too often. To say I loved it would be an understatement. I ADORED it. From page one until the very last page it kept me captivated, an emotional mess in the best possible way. I couldn't put it down and read it straight through--it was worth a sleepless night.

I have been becoming bored of Coming of Age (NA) books lately and I find myself eyerolling more than I care to admit. My Skylar was a breath of fresh air when the genre IMO was becoming stagnant. I need to put that out there because if you are feeling the same you may not want to dig into this one and that would be a huge mistake.

This was an emotional one. I went through so many tissues, and have red, puffy swollen eyes--but it was worth it. So worth it. I laughed, and I cried, and I laughed some more. GAH!!!! Just a sec--totally fangirling over Penelope right now... o.O

Okay so what was it about?

As the blurb states it's the friends-to-lovers story of Mitch and Skylar. If you read Jake Undone (which I also LOVED) we met Skylar as Nina's friend. I didn't actually remember her until the part came up when she met Nina. You see this novel is a complete standalone, like the other two, so you can read them in any order without fear of spoilers. The characters of the second book just appeared for a few cameos ;)

Anyway, Mitch and Skylar meet when they are children and spend a summer leaning on each other through hard times. I adored seeing them this way, it was so cute and heartfelt. They are separated for a few more years before life brings them together again when they are teenagers. They are friends for awhile, and although they are really attracted to each other, Mitch's past makes him cynical of love from a young age. He doesn't want to hurt the one girl he cares about so he tries really hard to keep things platonic. But their chemistry is undeniable. However, just when they think it will finally be their time, tragedy hits. This is where the tears hit big time. Mitch stays by her side throughout this horrendous ordeal, and my heart broke into a million pieces watching this couple try to make it through this. I fell in love with him over and over and over again. I don't think I could love his character more.

Unfortunately, this couple will have to deal with much more than one tragedy. It was as if they just couldn't catch a break--I died a little inside every time they were torn apart.

And then their was Skylar's character. I really don't remember EVER loving a female heroine as much as this one. She was funny, witty, smart, brave, and had a huge heart. She was the other half of Mitch. She was his soul mate.

And that's what this novel was about--beautiful, passionate, soul deep love. A love so deep it hurts to read.

"It's f@#$ing painful," he said.
"What is?"
"How much I love you.

And I FELT IT TO MY BONES. I felt EVERYTHING this couple went through. And the moral of the story is everything happens for a reason. Something good came from each and every heartache they faced. I understood why they had to go through the things they did. Painful yes, but worth it in the end--just like this novel :)

Overall, I can't stress how AMAZING this book was. Simply PHENOMENAL. I highly recommended all of Penelope's books, but this is her best novel to date! It is a MUST READ!!!!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 High school romance not for me. 21 juillet 2014
Par Dorothy Parker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Gosh, I'm sorry to disagree with all these reviews, but I really did not enjoy this book. In order to explain why, I have to provide some spoilers, so don't continue if you want to read the book.
First, I REALLY do not want to read about the sex lives of teenagers. This story begins with the couple meeting when they are children and then finding each other again in high school, and we have the whole high school romance thing, which is a little twisted because Mitch has to get over his fear that the relationship will go bad if they go beyond being friends and then when he finally does, Skylar gets cancer.
Two things here, I'm a grown woman, I am not interested in teenage love and sex. This goes on for 15 chapters! Second, there is nothing so depressing as cancer and really puts a damper on love and sex. Mitch's sudden turnaround is never explained. What happened to change his mind so drastically? And then the same thing for Skylar. Why does she drop him just because he going to college in Boston? I mean, seriously? She's going to graduate from high school a year later from him. Boston has more colleges than any other city in the country. Why wasn't there just ONE time when she considered going to college in Boston? Why did she keep saying that they would be separated for four long years? Boston and New York...really not far apart either.
When Skylar dumps him after all Mitch has done for her when she was sick, I was pretty much done. I kept reading, I kept hating Skylar. I kept wanting to get to the grown-up part, but even with Part Two when they were adults, I still felt like these people acted immature and weak. In the end, Skylar and Mitch get back together. That's after Skylar totally screws Kevin over. Yay, happy ending! Seriously? I finished the book. Can't say it was a pleasant experience though.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Breathtaking Contemporary Romance -- A Must Read! 11 juin 2014
Par Moonrise Book Blog - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Trying to capture in words the essence of this story is as futile as trying to find the magic formula for love. Simply put, this book holds a magical tale that will catch you by surprise, take your breath away, and make you fall in love over and over again.

Skylar and Mitch first met as kids. Mitch's parents were going through a rough patch, and in an effort to shield their son from the worst of it, sent him to his grandmother's house for the summer. But despite their efforts, he knew things were bad, and began tuning out the rest of the world to cope. That is, until he met Skylar. Having experienced a similar disruption in her young life, Skylar was understanding. But more importantly, she was able to bring Mitch out of his shell with her sense of humor and enthusiasm for life. By the end of summer, they were best friends.

Throughout the years, Skylar and Mitch's paths continued to cross. And although the story begins at a pivotal point in adulthood, we discover the full scope of their lives and interactions, as told by both Skylar and Mitch, including their perspectives on the obstacles in their way. Ultimately, these characters never quite let go, and through the storytelling, we learn why. It will pull at your heartstrings, and will make you laugh and cry, because love is messy, complicated, unpredictable... but it is also true bliss. And it will come along when you least expect it.

Along with our main characters, we reconnect with old friends from previous books, and meet up with new characters--some are equally charming, while others are much less so. But all are fully developed, perfectly entwined with the plot, and add meaningful elements to the story.

This is an ambitious and poignant tale of an entirely human experience that will leave you deep in thought, long after you turn the last page. Unlike anything else I've read, this story is as much a journey for the reader as it is for Skylar and Mitch. And for anyone who has ever felt the kind of love you can't explain in words, this story will bring you home.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Book That Will Remain With You Forever !!! 11 juin 2014
Par Amy Rogers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This review took me awhile to come up with because there are no adequate words to explain this book or the feelings that I experienced while reading it. From the moment I opened the book Penelope held my heart in her hands. I couldn't even make it through the first page without crying. Skylar and Mitch will pull you into there story like no other book! From the moment they met all the way to the end you will smile, cry, your heart with break and your heart will heal. I've never read a book where I cried and then laughed all in the same page! Penelope takes you on quite the roller coaster of a journey. With twist and turns along the way that you will not see coming! You will never even guess what it was that Mitch did! I was so shocked by it! It was nice to get little bits of Jake in the book. The book truly is about love, loss, forgiveness and finding yourself! Penelope thank you for sharing your gift with us! You are absolutely brilliant and have a way to tell a story like no other! Definitely one of my favorite books ever!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Loved this book!! 12 juin 2014
Par Tracie Payne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
4.5 stars. I really loved this book. I thought Skylar was such a great character in Jake Undone and I was excited to read this story. I will admit that the first half of the book was much different than the second half. The first half was seeing how Mitch and Skylar met and developed a great friendship and eventually became more, and it was beautiful. But knowing something was going to happen to tear them apart really just added such an intensity, the anticipation of it all falling apart, because I loved them together. Seeing him stand by her through her illness, at times just had me clutching my heart. I had such faith in him. I only wish Skylar had the same faith. But low and behold, something happens and the relationship ends, and my heart was broken. I felt both their pain and depression like it was my own. They both make some decisons that you really think they can't come back from. And Penelope Ward had such a twist that I did not see coming, that when it happened I was shocked. Shocked. And pissed and just made me hate a character with a passion. Eventually they find each other again and strike up a friendship. Skylar was seeing someone else at the time but the feelings were still there, because they belonged together. It's a slow burn, but the payoff is phenomenal. What I loved is that even though they fell apart, there was never any malicious intent, and their actions weren't unforgivable. They had to fight for it, but when two people are meant for each other, when they finally find happiness, it's just the best feeling. This was such a great addition to the series and I was so excited that I won an ARC from Penelope Ward I ate this book up. I also have to add, that I loved their mutual friend Davey, he was just the perfect character for some comic relief. Excellent book
