#Live #ReleaseDay ~~ Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
DIRTY LETTERS IS LIVE!
Sandy’s 4.5 Blush Review
Vi & Penelope readers already know what to expect when you pick up one of their books. A smexy read with plenty of angst and just as much heat. That being the case then DIRTY LETTERS will not disappoint! Except here they’ve delved into the area of panic/anxiety disorder and agoraphobia too. How can this all gel into something that you want to read? Let me tell you!
Luca is a very successful novelist who is crippled with severe anxiety after a life-altering event. During a road trip home to clear out her deceased father’s apartment and happens to find a letter addressed to her. A letter from her childhood pen pal telling her off for falling off the face of the earth when they were teenagers. Little does she know that Griffin (aka the pen pal) is now a famous, uber-sexy, rockstar!
She decides to attempt to explain and apologize in the way they always have “talked” – that’s right – by writing a letter. Little does she know how that would open the door to their past and to their future.
A rock star and a woman with agoraphobia who is afraid of crowds don’t sound like a match made in heaven. Thing is that connection they made as children is STILL there. Neither one knows the other’s last name or what they look like as adults so it’s easy to pick up where they left off. As they get to know each other all over again things take a turn to the oooooh so sexy.
I was caught up right away because I was fascinated by the premise. I laughed, I cried, I sipped my pinot grigio and took the ride with Luca and Griffin. Two people that on the surface don’t seem to go together at all. Luca carries survivor guilt like an anchor around her shoulders but Griffin may be the thing that pushes her to reclaim every part of her life. Griffin who is empathetic and understanding yet has this bigger than life sort of existence. He fears that it will drive Luca away.
Truth be told – I fell in love. In love with these characters. In love with the dying art of writing letters. In love with second chances. In love with how life can turn on a dime. In love with how Vi and Penelope’s partnership is perfection in the eyes of this romance lover’s heart.
Louisa’s 4 Blush Review
Once again I went in blind – I am always guaranteed a great book by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. And once again they delivered!
Pen pals as kids – sharing their secrets and then – radio silence.
Years pass and Griffin sends a letter in haste…he’s angry, frustrated and just wants to know what happened to Luca.
Luca sees the letter and has to respond and their letters begin again. With time they do become a bit dirty (hence Dirty Letters) but more than that happens. They rekindle their friendship and begin to trust again. But there is a twist…Griffin isn’t just a “regular guy”, he’s a rock star and Luca has no idea. And Luca has been struggling with anxiety and agoraphobia…a rock star and a woman who is afraid to leave her home is a recipe for disaster.
Seeing Griffin help Luca heal and recover from her anxieties was beautiful. He’s sweet and loving and just has her best interest at heart and you won’t be able to NOT fall in love with him.
Have no fear that Vi and Penelope weave a story that will have you swooning, laughing and falling in love all while teaching us a bit about overcoming fears and phobias. Beautiful writing and storytelling once again from Vi & Penelope!
A Contemporary Romance Novel
New York Times Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
I’d never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet.
Griffin Quinn was my childhood pen pal, the British boy who couldn’t have been more different from me. Over the years, through hundreds of letters, we became best friends, sharing our deepest, darkest secrets and forming a connection I never thought could break.
Until one day it did.
Then, out of the blue, a new letter arrived. A scathing one—one with eight years of pent-up anger. I had no choice but to finally come clean as to why I stopped writing.
Griffin forgave me, and somehow we were able to rekindle our childhood connection. Only now we were adults, and that connection had grown to a spark. Our letters quickly went from fun to flirty to downright dirty, revealing our wildest fantasies. So it only made sense that we would take our relationship to the next level and see each other in person.
Only Griff didn’t want to meet. He asked that I trust him and said it was for the best. But I wanted more—more Griff, in the flesh—so I took a big chance and went looking for him. People have done crazier things for love.
But what I found could change everything.
