Dirty Letters by [Keeland, Vi, Ward, Penelope]

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.

5 ‘My sun, moon and stars’ Stars!

ARC provided by the the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward just keep getting better. This incredible duo have written another unique love story that is now surely one of my top favorites by them. Their stories have just the right amount of everything I love in a romance novel and Dirty Letters is no exception. Get your grabby hands ready because you don’t want to miss this release coming November 5th!

So, Dirty Letters is this duo’s upcoming novel and it’s a standalone contemporary romance. It’s focused in two childhood pen-pals that lost touch years ago and reconnect after Luca (the heroine) finds a new letter from Griffin while in a trip to New York. Actually, it was Luca who decided to cut that relationship short and now, feeling guilty over everything that made her stop writing in the past, she finally writes back to her angered friend. That is the start of a series of letters that become dirty, honest and sentimental and it also starts this beautiful love story.

Sometimes when you follow your dreams, you realize they aren’t free, and the cost is far greater than you’d ever anticipated. 

Wow, that was such a fresh read! I knew when it comes to Vi and Penelope that it will not be a typical romance and that is what makes their stories so wonderful to read. Luca suffers from agoraphobia (consequence of a heartbreaking event in her past) and her rekindled connection with Griffin starts her slowly coming out of her shell. It was so touching to see the development of this love story, especially with the difficulties of Griffin being a famous musician and how that affects them both in different ways.

As if his gorgeous face, flawless body, and sexy voice weren’t enough—God seriously pulled out all His tricks when He made this man. 

I just loved this couple so much, from beginning to end. I loved the start of their relationship with the letters, how those feelings and sexual tension exploded when they finally meet in person and how emotional everything became for them. Of course, Griffin was so swoony and, obviously, he is very talented with his mouth (and not only to sing!). The sexy scenes were amazing and the chemistry and connection between Luca and Griffin was to die for. It was a long and interesting journey for these characters but I am so glad they found their HEA.

Love is everything. It matters more than fear, more than death. It transcends time. 

Therefore, I am rating Dirty Letters with 5 STARS because I always enjoy a unique romance novel and Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward definitely did not disappoint with this one. We even get a wonderful surprise in the end and, trust me, you don’t want to miss it. I loved Griffin and Luca, how they took their relationship to the next level and the special connection they share. I just love these two authors working together and I cannot wait for whatever is coming next!
