Title: Moody
Author: Penelope Ward
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 22, 2022



From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.


The day I showed up to Dax Moody’s sprawling home, I had no idea what was coming.
As a traveling massage therapist, I was used to entering the houses of strangers.
But this assignment was different from any before it.
From the outside, I’d correctly assumed the owner was rich. What I didn’t realize was that he would be younger than I’d imagined, single, stunningly gorgeous, and mysterious.
Despite the fact that Dax had booked a massage, it never actually happened, since our first appointment was unexpectedly cut short by a comedy of errors.
Certain I’d never see him again after that day, I’d done nothing but think about the captivating man.
To my surprise, he called a second time. That appointment, we talked a lot, developing a stronger connection. But once again, there was no actual massage.
The man I now affectionately called “Moody” kept calling me to come back.
It took three times before I finally gave him the massage he’d ordered. Let’s just say it was challenging to keep things professional. I was extremely attracted to Dax, and by that time, I was falling hard.
Eventually, I’d find out why he’d been so aloof, the reason why he and I could never be together.
Our story was supposed to end there, but it didn’t.
Instead, I was left perpetually longing for a forbidden man.




Limited time release price $3.99!

Moody is Penelope Ward’s newest standalone. Every time I open one of her books I know I will be addicted to story and this one is no different. It’s unique, forbidden, heartbreaking and at the same time, heartwarming.
The day Wren stepped into Dax’s home to give him a massage was the day both of their lives changed forever. He never got his massage that day or even at the next appointment. What they did get was great conversation and some ogling of the other. On the third appointment, there was actually a massage but there was more to it. They seemed to be developing a friendship along with feelings mixed in but Dax knew he wasn’t for her. She deserved to find someone who could give her everything he couldn’t. It had to let her go but it was easier said than done…
I really can’t get into the storyline more than that. I can say how much I loved these two! I love forbidden romances and plot twists and this book has both. It’s a beautiful love story with twists and turns. I can’t wait for Penelope’s next book and so happy I won’t have to wait look since Penelope and Vi have one coming up!
“I will be leaving my pants on, thanks.”
“Okay. Just make sure you take the stick out of your ass one way or the other.”
He glared at me but finally cracked a slight smile. I’d take it.
“I’m going to fucking hell,” he whispered.
“I’ll see you there.”
“Do you mind waiting here while I get my shotgun?”
