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.

I have mixed feelings about this one. 

I think i didn’t pay attention to the blurb, so i kinda expected something funny like I’ve got your number, by Sophie Kinsella. Imagine my surprise when I started reading and found out that it’s kinda of a sad story. Real story, with real people, real problems, secrets, devastating lives and all that. None of them had it easy. 

I said i have mixed feelings about it because I hated the secret part. Both of the main characters had something important to share with each other and I don’t like not knowing (or waiting too long) what’s happening. So i didn’t particularly enjoy the first quarter of the book. 

But i can tell you this. I’m happy I didn’t drop the book. I got it why the secrets were kept and everything fall into place exactly when it should have happen, not a moment sooner. Penelope Ward is a skillful writer and she did an amazing job creating this story, even though I appreciate it only in the end. 🙂

You might cry, you might laugh, you will be shocked, Landon will turn you on a couple of times, you’ll feel their pain and their love, so basically, you’ll have it all.
