#BlogTour~~Love Online by Penelope Ward
A Standalone Contemporary Romance Novel
By: NY Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author, Penelope Ward
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.
We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.
Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary.
Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.
From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.
She was an addiction.
At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.
Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman.
But I couldn’t really have her.
I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.
So I took a chance.
And that was when our love story really began.

LOUISA’S 4 BLUSH REVIEW
Penelope continues to amaze me with her never-ending ability to come up with new and fresh storylines.
Eden and Ryder’s story is so much more than just falling in love online. There are layers of their relationship that started as an innocent fascination turned friendship that becomes a need for both of them. The unlikeliest of couples. An heir to a Hollywood Studio, wealthier beyond his wildest dreams, surrounded by many but the loneliest of people.
Eden (aka Montana) the online CAM girl who is doing a job that from the get-go we know isn’t what she wants from life.
They learn to trust each other over time but there is always a few secrets they keep from each other.
I was hooked from the beginning – this is one of those books that you just need to read and experience their story first hand, I don’t want to spoil even one second of this for anyone. Two very likable characters that Ms. Ward has written that will sneak into your heart and you will want only the best for them…forever!
SANDY’S 4 BLUSH REVIEW
Ryder McNamara is successful, rich, has movie star good looks and is jaded as hell. He is constantly surrounded by people – hangers on who are there to party. Despite all these people, his only connections are to his father whom he adores and Benny, his slightly strange childhood friend. His life feels somewhat empty and he is unfulfilled.
Eden Shortsleeve aka Montana has big responsibilities, bills to pay and limited resources to fall back on. She’s not angry or resentful of her lot in life. The age of instant gratification makes it possible for a pretty girl to make a living with just a laptop and a Wi-Fi connection. Desperate circumstances will lead a person to do desperate things to survive and there certainly worse things than being a camgirl. Her heart is tender though and it is not easy for Eden to play the part of Montana.
A house full of beautiful people and yet Ryder goes into his bedroom to take a shower, get one off and go to bed. Opening his laptop, navigating to his favorite site and finding Eden’s picture will impact him more than he could ever imagine. A pretty girl holding a violin? Not the usual naked girl with giant fake boobs? She intrigues him. He logs on and she’s singing a song that is meaningful to him and he’s hooked.
Blissful anonymity! Screen names (ScreenGod/Montana). No faces. No physical contact. No expectations. Just what Ryder needs – until it’s not enough anymore. Montana becomes the best part of his day. He begins to look forward to “seeing” her and “speaking” to her. They connect. The situation becomes sexier between them and much more personal. He wants more. She does not. Letting someone into her real off screen life is not something that she wants to chance. Then one day she’s gone and he panics. Where is she? What happened to her? Is she hurt? Can he go on with his life as it was before Montana? Boys and girls we are about to find out!
Some may think this plot unlikely. I think in this day and age, this is all very plausible. People meet on Tinder or Match.com and get married. They live every aspect of their lives on social media. Rich/famous people can be surrounded by users and posers instead of people that really care about them. A person can be lonely in a room full of people.
Penelope Ward gives us an imaginative storyline here. It was interesting, sexy and though I wish it was just a little more angsty, I enjoyed it. Open the book and just roll with it. Love online is a win in my book!
