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.
Harloe’s 5 Diamonds Review
What will Penelope Ward think of next? She’s reliably and consistently keeps her novels unique by creating never-read-before storylines. Have you ever wondered about the long-lost friend from middle school? Maybe after indulging in too much vino? Well, Rana Saloomi is ready to tell her story.
Drunk Dial is a sweet and charming second-chance romance but there is a lot hidden beneath the surface. In true Penelope fashion, a lot of unexpected twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat. I started this book in the morning and finished it later that night because there was no putting it down. I needed to know how Rana and Landon’s beautiful journey would end.
Rana is a very complex character. She’s riddled with insecurities and self-doubt yet puts herself on display in many ways. Watching her evolve throughout the vivid scenes was fantastic. Rana is the type of heroine I enjoy discovering because she’s very relatable and realistic. She’s kind and warm, even though she’s guarded and wary. I’m a big fan of liquid courage and would cheers this lady any day!
Landon is finger-licking delicious. From his tattoos to his piercings to his alpha tendencies, I couldn’t get enough of this sexy man. There is so much more to him than physical presence though. Landon is tender and passionate, especially when it comes to Rana. To be the center of his focus would be a spectacular spot to be and it was very exciting to watch them grow back together.
From start to finish, Drunk Dial had me hooked. I love this author’s flawless style and her latest novel definitely has the signature stamp I swoon over. The plot is rich and the storyline is captivating. I’m sure Landon and Rana will quickly find their way into your romantic heart!
