REVIEW – PARK AVENUE PLAYER by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland


It started out like any normal day.

Then the fender bender happened.

The guy I collided with drove an expensive car and was drop-dead gorgeous. Too bad he was also a total jerk. We argued over whose fault it was and any other thing that came out of his condescending mouth.

Eventually, the police came and we went our separate ways. The insurance companies would have to figure things out. I had a job interview to get to anyway—one I was excited about.

Though that excitement changed to disappointment the moment the person interviewing me walked in. The guy from the accident.


Yeah, so I didn’t get the position.

The problem was, I really wanted it. No, I needed it. Anything to get me out of my current career and back into working with kids.

So, even though Hollis LaCroix was as intimidating as he was devastatingly handsome, I went back to see him and begged for a chance.

To my surprise, he gave me a shot taking care of his troubled niece.

At least my attraction to him wouldn’t be able to go anywhere. I wasn’t about to jeopardize my job or the strong bond Hailey and I formed.

But resisting the magnetic pull between us wasn’t that simple. (Then there was our little underwear game—don’t ask.)

We continued to flirt without crossing the line—until it finally happened.

This is the part of the story where we fall in love and live happily ever after, right?

Well, life has a way of throwing some major curveballs.

Ours was one I didn’t see coming.

”There are some people who come into our lives and take a little piece of our hearts when they go. So they’ll always have that love with them. But the heart is resilient and will eventually heal itself. Though the new heart isn’t the same as the old heart, and that’s why we never love two people the same way.”




I always love reading the collaborative works of Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland. These two have written some of my most favorite romances. There are some I consider to be better than others and ”PARK AVENUE PLAYER” is up there with some of their best works. I can honestly say there wasn’t anything that I didn’t love about Hollis and Elodie’s love story. I laughed quite a bit and even shed a few tears. Get ready to go on a roller coaster ride filled with raw emotions. The plot twist made for some gut-wrenching angst. This book was everything and more! I hope that you all enjoy it as much as I have!





I’m not going to say much else because in no way do I want to spoil this for anyone. The book releases on September 23rd. Readers are in for a real treat!!





Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 5
Plot: 5
Angst: 4.5
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
