The Day He Came Back by Penelope Ward
NOW A WALL STREET JOURNAL AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER. From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel. It was the summer of my life. I'd met the guy of my dreams. Unfortunately, he was the son of my uppity employer--and very much off-limits. But Gavin was a rebel. He knew his mother would disown him if she found out about us; in his eyes, we just had to be careful. He never treated me as his mother did--like hired help. Instead, Gavin put me on a pedestal and loved me harder than I'd ever been loved in my life. What a summer it was. Until it all ended--badly. I was never supposed to see Gavin again. That didn't stop me from thinking about him every day for ten years. I knew little about his life now, just that he was an entrepreneur living an ocean away. When a twist of fate had me working again in the very place our love affair started a decade earlier, I knew it was only a matter of time before I might see him again. But I wasn't prepared. What if he hated me? What if he loved someone else now? I wasn't prepared for all the unknowns. And most of all, I wasn't prepared for today to be the day he came back.
