Okay. If you haven't seen me ranting about this novel on ALL of may social media yet, you missed a show. I am OBSESSED with this book. I completely LOVE everything about retellings and this is a Contemporary retelling of PETER PAN!
Guys, I cannot yell enough about how amazing this read was. Gina absolutely knocks this out of the park. I read this from to back in a matter of hours and then sent Gina a million messages demanding the next book because I absolutely fell in love with the world and the boys.
Pan takes a contemporary twist on the fairy tale we all love. It gives you all the things you love about the know fairy tales, and turns you on your head.
The Darling boys are all grown up, and boy I am happy to be her to see it.
This is Pan and Wendy's story and it is everything I wanted. A second chance love story filled with little easter eggs from our original tale. I was completely enthralled. This story winds you deep into it that you become family with the lost boys. You end this tale wanting a story for each and every one of them.
From NYT and USA Today bestselling author, Gina L. Maxwell, comes a brand new series with a fresh twist on an old classic.
Once upon a time, in Neverland, North Carolina--I fell in love.
I was twelve when Peter first climbed up to my balcony.
Thirteen when I sneaked out to see him at the School for Lost Boys.
Seventeen when his touch made me fly,
And eighteen when his words made me cry.
We were magnetic, drawn to each other from that very first night, and what I thought would be forever. But when it came time for me to leave, he wouldn't come with, so I left town with a map for my future and a shattered heart.
Ten years later, I've returned to Neverland, hoping to find a man in place of the boy.
Peter was partially right, growing up is no fun. After quitting my fancy career that sucked the magic out of life, I'm now organizing the fundraiser of the year. In a move that could make or break the event and my new company, I've hired Peter, master mechanic and owner of LB Automotive, to help me pull this off--trusting him to rebuild a classic car for the auction that could help hundreds of foster kids in need.
I thought I was prepared, but the boy who refused to leave is now a man hell-bent on getting me to stay, and as sparks fly between us, that undeniable fire flares back to life, deeper and hotter than ever.
But that ripped body doesn't mean Peter's matured enough to make us or this event work, and not everyone in Neverland is happy about my return.
Not every wound heals.
Not every heart can be fixed.
Not every boy grows up.
And after all this time, the love we found might be lost to us again...this time, forever.
*Pan is an adult contemporary romance retelling of Peter Pan, complete with Wendy, Hook, Tink, and all the Lost Boys as sexy mechanics. There are no fantasy elements in this world, other than the "magic" that happens between the sheets. ;)
