Review: 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.

A complete STANDALONE.

ARC provided for an honest review 

I felt this was a unique story line and a little different from Penelope’s other books that I have read and I’ve read ALL of them.

The beginning of this book had me laughing. I mean how many times have you been out drinking and you get to thinking about “that one guy” from your past that you just can’t forget. I am sure there have been a couple of times that you wanted to call him up and say whatever you were feeling and then blame it on the alcohol the next day. Well, that is exactly what Rana Banana does! I loved it! It was funny, entertaining and well received the guy, Landon.

Just because this story starts out lighthearted don’t let it trick you into thinking there is not a deeper meaning to it because there is so much more to these characters that meets the eye in the beginning.

Rana Banana & Landon are two friend who lost touch long ago. They are two people who are broken. Together can they heal one another?

“There’s nothing wrong with having flaws. They’re what makes us human.”

Landon was dreamy. Just a very caring man. You could sense he was good from the start even though he is hiding some secrets. Rana Banana had self -esteem problems and was having trouble getting over some things from her past. It was amazing to watch these two characters fall in love and overcome the obstacles that had held them back from other relationships.

Some of the secrets revealed will shock you but the love that you feel throughout this story will melt your heart.

“Feel me wrapped around you. Smell me. Close your eyes, and just be with me.”
