Publisher's Summary

She wants something real. He wants something now. Together they're trouble in USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke's sexy and funny twice-in-a-lifetime love story.

With his shameless grin and let's-play swagger, carpenter Penn Etling leaves women wanting in Dogwood Lane. What do they get? Avery Perry knows: a one-night stand. She's been there. She remembers every hot pulse as if it were yesterday. But Penn? He doesn’t remember a thing. Now he’s making new moves, and Avery’s not falling for trouble...again. Is she?

How could the beautiful stranger resist him? Avery is going to be a challenge for the bad boy. She's the kind of woman who digs deep - deep enough to see there's more to Penn than meets the eye. But first she has to give him a chance. She has to say yes. Could she also be the woman to make him change his playboy ways?

When these two come together, it's hard to pull them apart. But with love and trust on the line, can Avery and Penn get what they both want? This time for keeps?

Roll with it and win.

A return back to Dogwood where Pen doesn’t know what hit him. Avery came to Dogwood Lake to live with her Aunt to escape LA and found Pen. This story has it all fun characters, great interactions, heart and strong sexual energy.

This is a book in an interconnecting series, so no prior reading is needed. If you have read the other books. You already know about Pen but in this book you get another side of him and really get to know him.

Penn Owns My Heart

Hands down this is my favorite book of the Dogwood Lane series and maybe of all of Adriana Locke's books. I love beautifully broken characters and both Avery and Penn have been broken by their upbringing and families. While Penn has always been the one-night stand kind of guy, what he finds in Avery-a girl who helped him on his darkest night in the past-is more than he is prepared to accept.
He sees himself as unworthy and unlovable but Avery sees the man beneath, as do all his friends and neighbors.
Avery has secrets of her own, but refusing to divulge she's been in Penn's life before causes a great deal of turmoil in their lives. As a couple they are explosive and happy, apart they are both miserable, so Ms. Locke does what she does best: mend the characters and their hearts and giving them their HEA.
I listened to this amazing story and was totally pulled into the story by Laura West and Rock Engle, who may very well be my new favorite narrator. His rumbling voice and smooth Southern edge gave Penn just the right characterization. Ms. West was equally enjoyable as Avery. I hope to listen to more from this duo, together or separately.

Trouble

This one was great! Penn was the happy go lucky one who joked his way through life until he walks into the salon and sees Avery on a ladder and catches her. There is something about her. She recognizes him but he doesn't her. She looks different than she did when she was in town before. When she was, he had just called the cops on his father and was a confused kid and she was running from her parents but they came together for one hot and steamy night that rocked both their worlds. Now, in present day, Penn tries all the crazy come-ons and they settle on friendship until they tip into more. This one was very good and I hope this series keeps going. Matt definitely needs someone!

I love Penn!

Penn Etling. Man, where have you been my whole life?

Dogwood Lane, apparently. Out there living his own life, refusing to believe he could fall in love, yet subconsciously holding on to the memories of a girl from long ago.

Penn broke my heart while simultaneously making me fall in love with him. His humor, his heart, his...ability to love and care for others (not where you thought I'd take that, now was it?!).

Because he does have a huge heart on him. He'd give you the shirt off his back. He'd fix your steps without you asking.

Because he's that kind of guy.

You want this story.
No one does small town romance like Adriana Locke.

Small town romance

I love the hometown feel of Adriana Lockes Dogwood Lane books. The small town comfort of everyone knowing each other & the casual banter between close friends is fun. Although I liked Penn as the fun friend in previous books, I had some trouble connecting to him as the romantic lead. I guess I’ve known too many man/child Romeo’s to see his appeal, but that’s just me. On a whole it was a good book from an entertaining series. Narration a little too heavy on the southern charm.

good story

I've read or listened to the whole series and I really enjoyed it overall. unfortunately this book had different narrators than the first two books, and I didn't enjoy these two as much. I feel like the male tried to hard to do different voices, and the women and children kinda made me cringe. I hate to admit it. the female narrator was better than the male, but not as good as the one on the other 2 books. unfortunately I enjoyed this one better reading it over listening to it

Cute second chance romance

Avery Perry has moved to Dogwood Lane to escape the drama that is her high profile family in LA. She just wants to cut hair, do some painting and find a nice guy. Her aunt encourages her to make the move and now Avery is ready to live her best life. Of course, on her first day at the salon, none other than her one night stand walks in...oh, and he doesn’t recognize her. Can Avery be friends with the one guy who had made her feel special and didn’t judge her?
Penn Etling is a player...he doesn’t do relationships and is clear about that. The newest transplant to Dogwood Lane has him intrigued...there’s something about Avery that feels familiar. When Avery makes it clear that she’s not available for a hookup, Penn finds himself becoming friends. Each of these characters have baggage that prevents them from being open with each other. Can this friendship become more?
Cute second chance story with lovable characters.

Mouth noises

Ugggghhhh!!!!!! Story is cute but if I have to hear the female narrator SWALLOW or her dry mouth one more time, I am going to scream. It’s nails on a chalkboard. Recommend reading this one, NOT listening.

Great book, horrible southern accent.

Great book. The male narrator southern accent is horrible. No Southerner sounds like that.

OK

this would of been so much better if they kept to the same narrator's as previously because these narrators ruined it totally they made then sound stupid with the slow southern drawl omg I've never heard anything so annoying I sent the book back as they ruined Penn for me!
