My Skylar (Gemini #3)
by Penelope Ward
Release Date: June 12, 2014
From the author of the Amazon #1 bestselling romance, Jake Undone, comes a friends-to-lovers story of longing, passion, betrayal and redemption……with a twist that will rip your heart out.
Skylar was my best friend, but I secretly pined for her. One thing after another kept us apart, and I’ve spent the last decade in fear of losing her forever.
First, it was the cancer, but she survived only to face the unthinkable at my hands. Because of me, she left town. For years, I thought I’d never see her again.
But now she’s back…and living with him.
I don’t deserve her after everything I’ve put her through, but I can’t live without her. This is my last chance, because she’s about to make the biggest mistake of her life. I can see it her eyes: she doesn’t love him. She still loves me…which is why I have to stop her before it’s too late.
My Skylar is a STANDALONE novel and a companion to Jake Undone.

~~ 5 “Never Ending Love Story” Stars ~~
I am SPEECHLESS!!! This series continues to get better and better as the books come out.
My Skylar is the third book in Penelope Ward’s Gemini Series. All of the books can be read as standalones, but there are reoccurring characters from the stories before. I have loved this series from the very beginning. Penelope has the ability to create a story that hits on every emotion a read has. Her books just suck you in and don’t let go. I have to admit…I purposely read her books as slow as I can because I never want them to end. The stories she creates will have you laughing, crying, yelling, swooning, and even your panties melting 😉 My Skylar was not just a love story that spanned over a 15 year period, it was also a story about forgiveness, redemption and the never ending bond two people can share. The pace and flow of this story is fabulous. Penelope wrote this story over 15 years starting all the way back to when Skylar and Mitch first met and continued it all the way up to the present time. Now I know what you are thinking that is a long time to fill and that it might drag in spots, but rest assured it doesn’t. She wrote the story so that we move right along with the characters without dragging the story out or giving to much information. I love her style of writing because I honestly feel like I am a part of the story and that I truly can feel what the characters are feeling. I could honestly go on and on about this book, but I don’t think my words can ever express how great this book and series truly are. You just need to read them for yourself!!!!
We meet Skylar and Mitch in Jake Undone (Book 2). Sklyar and Mitch are in their teens and are trying to navigate through a tough period in Skylar’s life. I feel in love with these two characters in that book and I was beyond EXCITED to know they were getting their own book. I just knew their story would be amazing. What I loved about this book was that Penelope gave us their whole story…she didn’t just start writing from where we meet them in Jake Undone, she went back to the beginning and we got to fall in love with all over again. Watching their relationship grow over the years was amazing. They started as the best of friends and eventually ventured into more. Their relationship truly had its ups and downs, but we got to see that no matter what happened to these two….their love was never ending and could stand the test of time. Skylar was such an amazing character. She is so strong!! I loved her sassy and snarky attitude and I loved that she was willing to speak her mind. Mitch will definitely go towards the top of my BBF list (a Very close runner-up to Jake) He was so swoon worthy. He could be so sweet and tender at times but then in the next moment he would be a dirty talker 😉 I loved how his love for Skylar never faltered . He proved over and over that he was willing to be by her side no matter what. You definitely want to meet these characters for yourself….you won’t be sorry!!!!
I really enjoyed seeing Jake and Nina in this story as well. It was great to see that the friendship that Skylar had formed with them in Jake Undone was still as strong and that she really relied on both of them at certain times in her life. It was great to also see a little bit into what they have been up to over the years 🙂
Let me just finish with this….I would 100% recommend this book/series!!!! This series has definitely become one of my all time favorite series and I will be reading it again and again!!!!
