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.

Angie’s Thoughts:

 I really wanted to love this book. It really had great promise. I loved how Rana and Landon were best friends when they were little. I loved the concept of her Drunk dialing him and they reconnecting. I loved a few other things about the book. I really loved Lilith.

I lost my connection to them somewhere along the lines of their instalove and strong bond of I can’t live without you. They didn’t discuss their lives much with each other. Their relationship was solely based on attraction and secrets. You can’t start a new relationship based on secrets. That bothered me the most.

I didn’t start gaining interest until the end but by then it was over. I would’ve loved to have had a book more about Landon, Rana, and someone of importance more than just of Rana and Landon. There was so much jumping around and so much left out. I felt disconnected and I hated feeling that way. Like I said above… I really wanted to love this book.

The Verdict:
