Once again, this team of authors has created a deeply romantic story that pulls on your heartstrings from start to finish. This fantastic, emotional book had me rooting for a love that’s anything but easy, yet so worth the struggle.
I’m going to be intentionally vague here in describing the plot, because the discovery is all part of the journey and well worth letting it all unfold naturally. Essentially, it’s the story of childhood pen pals who started writing in second grade as an assignment and then spent the next ten years exchanging deep, intimate letters that brought them closer than people who see each other every day. Everything changed when Luca stopped responding to Griffin’s letters, and it changes again when he sends her a letter eight years later saying how much he could’ve really used a friend during that time in his life. Little did Griffin know that Luca actually had a very legitimate reason for taking time off from the letters, but the damage was already done by the time she was in a place where she could start responding again. Now that they are adults, all of those old feelings come rushing back to the surface and they both crave a real connection since they’re feeling alone in the world. These two lead very different lifestyles (perhaps too different to make a real relationship work), but they’ve been a part of each other’s lives for 18 years in one way or another and that means their connection is worth fighting for.
Do yourself a favor and read the book. It’s great. As always, the authors’ writing is so, so good. I’ve read several of their books at this point, so I was prepared for there to be a major obstacle in the path of love, but knew better than to try to spoil that for myself ahead of time. It’s best to just read the book and get immersed in the story; let things unravel naturally and follow the journey as the couple does. I had literal goosebumps while reading the ending, it’s that good.
From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes an unexpected love story that started with a boy and girl and heats up when the man and woman reconnect.
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.
