Review and Giveaway:Gemini by Penelope Ward

Diner waitress Allison Abraham had no idea her mundane life was about to dramatically change the day she serves a devastatingly handsome customer.

Allison is immediately captivated by the mysterious man who stared through her soul with his electric blue eyes. After he abruptly leaves the restaurant, she can’t get him out of her head.

She has no idea that he had actually come on a mission to find her.

Cedric Callahan wasn’t expecting to fall in love at first sight with the pretty waitress he’d set out to find. In fact, she was the last woman on Earth he should be having feelings for. But his selfish heart had other plans. Feeling compelled to know her before revealing himself, he makes her believe their meetings are coincidental. 

After a passionate romance ignites, Cedric’s lies and secrets are finally revealed, changing both of their lives forever.
4 Star Review by Guest reviewer Allison East
 The story is about Allison whose life changes when a man, Cedric, walks into her diner. Something about him is interesting to her. But for some reason- he's holding a big secret that could potentially change everything. I did not see this coming. I was guessing and trying to figure it out. 

I could have sworn I thought of everything but I did not. This twist took me by surprise. I felt forced to get to the end because I did feel devoted to their story, and that secret will keep you reading.
"My draw to Allison is not a choice. It's a completely uncontrollable pull that won't go away, despite the consequences of acting on it. I will never stop wanting her. And I will inevitably hurt her either way, once she learns the truth, whether I am involved with her or not. She is going to find out with or without me. Maybe just maybe, if I can show her who I am and get her to trust me, she will find it in her heart to see past everything."

I was in shock when I actually found out the secret, and I believe you will be too.
I really loved Cedric; he was caring, protective, sweet and totally into Allison. There was never any doubt that he was crazy for her. I did really like Cedric and Allison as a couple, despite some lingering angst and drama.  They really worked well together and there were some steamy scenes, but mostly they were just so in love and you could tell.

As the story progressed I fell more in love with the characters. And I also knew there was no cliffhanger- which makes this girl happy.  If I say anything too specific I'll give the whole thing away and I don't want to ruin the experience of reading a really sweet book

If you want a quick, fun, and adorable read- pick this one up for sure. It hooked me because my name is Allison, and I am a Gemini so I wanted to find out more!
