A new absolute must read from Penelope Ward – Drunk Dial is now available. Oh man I loved this book – just fantastic! I hope you’ll check out the book and my 5 star review.
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.
It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.
Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.
I didn’t think he’d call me back.
I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.
Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.
Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.
A complete STANDALONE.
I absolutely loved this book! Penelope Ward once again delivers a story that is fun, sweet, sexy and all around fantastic. Second chance stories are a favorite for me and this is at the top of that list – I love the slightly different take on their second chance! I think Drunk Dial is an absolute MUST READ!
Landon and Rana were friends when they were kids but were separated when Rana’s family moved out of the apartment they were renting from Landon’s parents. Both had different accounts of that experience, but even after all these years they still remember each other. One night, Rana drunk dials Landon (best drunk dial EVER) and it leads to a hilarious reuniting of these, and eventually so much more.
There were so many layers to this story, there were times when it totally made me laugh, seriously swoon – I mean what kind of awesome guy mails a date, and there were times when it grabbed my heart too. Both Landon and Rana have their flaws, neither are easy characters and Penelope Ward does a great job creating that angst and struggles. It feels read and raw and it’s all a part of their journey. I love how everything was handled in this story, the good, the bad and the painful and as it all comes together so beautifully. Landon and Rana are perfectly imperfect and their journey together is one of my favorites!
