DIRTY LETTERS IS LIVE!
A Contemporary Romance Novel
New York Times Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
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.
Blind faith. Those are the two words that stuck out to me as I let these words pour over me. Griffin and Luca have both been through so much, and yet blind faith is what has carried them to where they are today. And their letters connected them to a before and after, each piece of correspondence connecting these individuals in a way that nothing else ever could. So their conduit of conversation is what first forced them to open up to each other and look deeper into themselves. And it’s also what brought them back together. Plus it allowed them to be more free with themselves. However, we know that Griffin wasn’t ready to meet face-to-face. And that takes us back to blind faith.
Luca knew what this boy, now man, has always meant to her. Blind faith is what opened her up – to write to him after so many years, to share parts of her reserved self, to want to find him. And when things become a little more difficult, blind faith is what could be the make or break in their love story. And it is indeed a love story.
I love that Keeland and Ward bring back the romanticism of letter writing. They show us how this medium can force intimacy and intrigue. It can also bring forth a stark honesty cultivated by, yes you guessed it, blind faith. There are some very apopros moments of chemistry – well laid out and built up. They also make you rethink furbies named Mee-mee! I enjoy their collaborations because they each bring something so unique yet well blended to their characters and plots. They create wonderful secondary characters (Doc & Hortencia), fun scenarios, and sizzling heat.
You’ll love the way Griffin’s loves and Luca’s quirks. Great read!
