In for a Penny (The Whiskeys: Dark Knights at Peaceful Harbor # 7.5) by Melissa Foster
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.
This is a beautiful novella set in the world of the Dark Knights/the Whiskeys. It isn’t very long, but it sure packs a punch, emotion wise! At one point I was a bit teary eyed, but at the end, I was all smiles! It was very sweet, and ended with a perfect HEA!
Penny is in love. But what should be the happiest time of her life is full of confused emotions and an uncertain future. She knows what she feels, but isn’t sure if those feelings are returned, or if there is even a future for them.
Scott had a horrific childhood, and that’s left him with unresolved issues, and feelings of anger and self doubt. He doesn’t know if he deserves it, or if he even should, but he knows he wants Penny. The question is, can he keep her, or should he let her go, if he knows they want different things from life?
This book is an emotional roller coaster! Penny and Scott are so perfect together, but there are a lot of issues keeping them from fulfilling what could be an amazing future. There is so much packed into this little novella, and I loved Penny and Scott together. As someone who has adored all of the Whiskey books, I was excited to find that their story was coming, and definitely loved every page! It’s absolutely one that everyone should pickup ASAP!
