From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
Reasons why I should not be drawn to Troy Serrano.
Number one: He’s obnoxious.
Number two: He and I were enemies over a decade ago in high school.
Number three: He’s my friend’s ex-boyfriend.
I could go on and on, really.
When my boss gives me an unwanted assignment and tells me it involves spending time with the grandson of one of our residents—the grandson turns out to be . He’s now as successful as he is undeniably handsome.
Four hours a week of having to deal with his insufferable personality and unsolicited advice.
The only consolation is getting to stare at his annoyingly gorgeous face in between our many arguments.
Eventually, though, we slowly warm to each other and our outings become something I actually look forward to.
Apparently, I misunderstood the assignment, because it certainly didn’t include thinking about Troy when I close my eyes at night, imagining what it would be like with him—just once. All the while hating myself for fantasizing about a guy who’s all wrong for me. A guy whose car I keyed back in the day. (Long story, but he deserved it.)
That’s all this is—a fantasy.
Well, until that one night at the bar.
The night Troy and I run into each other, and all of our pent-up frustration comes barreling out.
Still, I refuse to accept that it means anything.
There’s no way the guy I’m supposed to hate is also the one I can’t live without.

Whenever I see that Penelope Ward has a new book out I know I need it in my life.. this one is no exception. I love me a good old enemies to lovers romance and let me tell you.. The Assignment has everything..
Troy and Aspyn have known each other since high school.. and to say they were friends.. would be a big fat NOPE!! I love me a good old slow burn that’s built from a hatred for each other, that turns into a friendship and something sooooo much more.
I loved the banter between Troy and Aspyn.. and who can ever forget Nonno & Kiki.. Trust me on this.. you want to read this book..
Another masterpiece if I do say so myself..
