MY FAVOURITE SOUVENIR IS LIVE!
A Contemporary Romance Novel
New York Times Bestselling Authors Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland
My planned trip for two unexpectedly turned into a trip for one. Rather than let
my breakup get me down, I packed my bags and decided a week at a luxury
resort was just what I needed.
But one calamity after the next, and suddenly I was stuck without a hotel room,
along with a few hundred other people.
It looked like my fancy vacation was about to turn into me sleeping on the hotel
Until I overheard a gorgeous man pretending to be someone he wasn’t in order
to steal a reservation from a guest who hadn’t shown up yet.
When I realized there were two rooms, instead of calling him out, I pretended to
be his sister. That’s how the story of “Milo and Maddie Hooker” began.
We were the Hookers.
My depressing trip quickly made a U-turn into an adventure.
My fake brother spent the next few days showing me around his hometown.
When it was time to leave, neither of us really wanted to go yet.
So, instead of flying back to our respective homes, we ventured on a road trip.
At every stop, we’d pick up souvenirs.
But as hot as our chemistry was, we never crossed the line.
Milo knew I’d just come out of a tough relationship and didn’t want to mess with
a vulnerable woman.
So instead, at the end of our trip, we made a pact to meet again in three
It was always my intention to meet him.
But when I got back home, reality hit in a big way.
And I worried I may have lost my handsome stranger forever.
Was there a place for him in my future?
Or had the memory of him just become my favorite souvenir?
WHEW! I know many of you are fans of Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland. I love their independent books and also their collaborations. But sometimes you really love a book. I LOVE THIS BOOK. There is something so honest in pure in the connection we see between Mateo and Hazel as they shed the masks they’ve adopted in their day-to-day lives while getting to know each other under pseudonyms. Kind of ironic, right? But that’s the beauty of how they get to know each other; under a guise, they are able to shed pretensions and fears.
There is a fairy tale quality to the Milo and Maddie Hooker, how they explore the world and each other. When reality comes knocking, that’s when the angst really settles in. Watching Milo become Matteo and Maddie settle back into Hazel separately and individually shows how much their journey helped them connect not only with each other, but also their true selves.
They are many layers to these characters and this story. I think that is part of what makes this tale so beautiful. It’s a little messy, a little complicated, has a dash of heartache, and just the pinch of angst. But that’s the beauty of how these authors write. They lift up your hearts while also making you feel like this could have been your own personal adventure.
And my favorite souvenir? The ending!
This is 5 stars for me. Great writing by some of my favorite authors!
