From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes an unexpected love story that starts long before the lovers meet.
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.
I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it again but I truly believe that sometimes a book comes into your life at a certain time for a certain reason. You see next week I am getting surgery on my Liver and I have been a nervous wreck. I’m terrified of the unknown and at times that fear has been debilitating. This is something that main character, Luca (which I have to admit I thought was a boys name at first, but loved for a girl!) struggles with after the death of her best friend.
Now I don’t want to say that I am anywhere close to Luca in regard to her agoraphobia and the anxiety she experiences because of it but I found an immense amount of comfort throughout her journey. Luca was definitely the highlight for me. I enjoyed the growth she experienced throughout the story and didn’t feel that it was rushed. Griffin was a great leading man and I loved how patient he was with Luca.
This book definitely brings you all the emotions. I mean two people who start off as pen pals at the age of 7, how adorable is that? I will admit I did have an issue with some of the letters when they reconnected. Don’t get me wrong I love a good dirty letter but at times I felt that it was almost too juvenile? I expected hot and heavy when reading the title of this book but that wasn’t what I got. However, the chemistry between Luca and Griffin when they were together made up for that in spades.
Overall, I was really surprised by the emotions I went through while reading this book. I definitely recommend this one to anyone who needs a little inspiration to push through their fears. (Goodreads)
