New Release-Excerpt & Giveaway: NEVER by Tara Lain (The PennyMaker Tales #4)

When your dreams come to life, do you fall in love — or send them back to Neverland?


(The Pennymaker Tales, #4)
By Tara Lain


Wendell “Wen” Darling lives in a world of shoulds and musts. Left to care for his brother and sister by his dull drudge of a father and wacko irresponsible mother, he suppresses his creativity, slaving in an ad agency seventy hours a week, letting his no-talent supervisor take the credit.

Then his bosses blow the campaign for their biggest client and Wen gets a chance to shine—but only if he can find the artist who painted a wild, glorious wall of graffiti in the subway. Hiding behind a pillar at 2:00 a.m., Wen comes face-to-face with the scarlet-haired, elven-faced embodiment of his divergent opposite—Peter Panachek, the flighty, live-for-today painter, singer, and leader of the rock group the Lost Boys. Everything Wen takes seriously, Peter laughs off, but opposites attract, even if their kisses always lead to battles. Peter’s devil-may-care persona hides a world of secrets, self-protection, and hidden fears, until the day a drug dealer, Vadon Hooker, threatens everything Wen holds dear. Guided by the mysterious Mr. Pennymaker, Peter has to choose between facing responsibility or burrowing even deeper into Neverland.

Peter looked up, stood, and John hurled himself into the air. Peter caught him, although it knocked him back a step or two. As Wen walked up, Peter and John were laughing.

Wen said, “Hi.” Duh. Wit to spare.

Peter gave him an unreadable face. “Hi.”

Peter set John’s feet back on the floor, but John took his hand. “Thanks, man, for saving me.”

A flicker of some kind of pain whipped across his face. “Wen saved you. I just screwed things up so you got kidnapped.”

John crossed his arms and frowned. “We’re not back there, are we? Sh*t happens, Peter.”

Wen sucked in breath to chastise John for the language and laughed instead. “Yes, it does. You got John in trouble through no fault of your own, and he shouldn’t have been running off to Neverland at the crack of dawn anyway. ” He gave John a look. “Then you got him out of it. Our plan wouldn’t have worked without you.”

Peter shrugged.

Wen slowly inhaled. Am I doing this? “There’s something else. I don’t think we work very well without you either—John and Michaela and, uh, me. I know you’ve got a lot of decisions to make, but would you throw that into the mix?” He clenched his hands together and hoped.

Peter stared at him. “You’re kidding. I’m a ne’er-do-well with no job and no place to live and a demanding family breathing down my neck. You’re a head of household with kids to raise and taxes to pay and a job where they don’t appreciate you that you don’t want to lose. How the hell does that work?”

Wen swallowed. “I can’t believe you just used ‘ne’er-do-well’ in a sentence.”
