Book Review Drunk Dial by Penelope Ward

Drunk Dial by Penelope Ward
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.

I think Penelope Ward thinks of books that get inspired of real life fantasies.

What happens when you think of the boy from your childhood that you have not been able to forget? What happens when, during a drunk night you decide to look him up and recklessly think, why not call him?

But the what Rana was not considering, what that Landon actually wants to meet her. Miles away to each other, they phone relationship becomes more than any of them anticipated, so Rana decides it’s a good idea to fly and meet Landon.

I devoured this book like crazy! A laugh-out loud, heartbreaking, angsty story. Second chances are the best.
