Harbour by Penelope Louleas 5 Star Review

Transferring my reviews, I still remember this book which I read 2 years ago




Harbour Manning’s life wasn’t going to plan. 

After finding her boyfriend, Derek, between the thighs of another woman, she was forced to re evaluate her life. When an offer to uproot and move to New York is presented to her, she grabs it with both hands and runs with it. 

Lincoln Whitmore’s engagement to model Rachael started with fireworks, but soon the love they shared diminished. On his final night in the city before a much-needed escape, Lincoln meets a gorgeous and funny woman, a woman so refreshing he is torn between wanting to stay and wanting to run. 

A chance meeting has Harbour unable to forget the mystery man who captivated her instantly, and she once again finds herself thrust into his world. 

What would you do if you found the one? How long would it take you to realize you couldn’t live without them? And what happens when someone from your miserable past comes back with a reason for you to let go of your happy future? 

When all the odds seem against her, will she stay and fight or go running back home? 

Life doesn’t always go to plan, but that doesn’t mean you’re heading in the wrong direction.

Harbour (Runaway Home, #1)Harbour by Penelope Louleas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

*I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

I must apologise for the delay in posting, but life was a bit hectic and it got pushed to the side for a bit…

So yesterday I decided enough was enough and I sat down to read…. The next time I look up its 3am!

The book flows easily, great storyline and character development it’s easy to get involved with their story.

I liked the supporting characters loads, Harbours friends, Melody and Pierce were my favourite supporting characters, and I was intrigued by Art, another of Harbours friends, I can see her story being an interesting one…. The author has set up the background characters well to write future books.

Now onto the main characters, Harbour is with a dick of a boyfriend and Melody forces Harbour to confront him, she then is given a chance to leave Melbourne and head to New York for a promotion and a change of scene… She arrives in time to be invited to the company Masquerade Ball, to which she wears the most amazing dress and mask, courtesy of her ‘fairy godmother’ Pierce!

She meets a Hot looking stranger in a mask who whisks her easy to Times Square for New Year’s Eve countdown… harbour is attracted to him, They kiss but part ways, as she’s not ready to jump back into a relationship after the last one, so she starts her new job, only to find out the handsome stranger is her boss, Lincoln!

She is hesitant to start up a relationship with Lincoln, who has baggage of his own… But he is determined and Harbour decides to let her heart rule her head.

There are bumps in the road to Harbours happy ending, I could have slapped both her and Lincoln some times,

I’m not going to say much more other than to say read the book and find out what happens to Harbour…

It’s a lovely read, but it’s quite raunchy, so it’s definitely 18 years and over.

Penelope Louleas is a new Aussie author to keep an eye on, and I really look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.
