A Contemporary Romance Novel
New York Times Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
4 heartwarming friends to lovers CROWNS
The title of the book should have given me a clue, but I was rather surprised by the speed at which the flirty banter in the letters between Luca and Griffin accelerated, given that they were kids when they’d last written to each other over 8 years previously. Let me tell you, things got very racy very quickly! I loved the fact that in this age of modern technology, they stuck to the pen and paper method of communication and their letters were fun and funny and made me laugh. I enjoyed this aspect of the story but felt it could’ve done with a little more depth emotionally.
The majority of the book was light hearted, and often quite quirky, with Luca’s wonderful bird loving therapist Doc and Hortencia her pig, not to mention the fact that I’ll never be able to look at a Furby key chain in the same way again!
There was, however, a serious aspect to this book in the form of Luca’s anxiety, her guilt and agoraphobia, and much emphasis is placed on this part of her life. I think the fact that I felt somewhat frustrated with Luca at times, meant that these authors actually did a very good job communicating her difficulties in a realistic, although respectful way. The fact that there’s no quick fix, and progress is often one step forward two steps back, rang true. I loved Griffin’s acceptance of Luca and his willingness to accommodate her needs in whatever way he could. He was no pushover, but he wasn’t overbearing either, simply a gorgeous man.
The last twenty percent or so actually took quite an emotional turn that I wasn’t expecting. Although it was quite the contrast, I really enjoyed those last few chapters. I would, however, have liked to have seen more romance overall between these two but, nevertheless Luca and Griffin’s tale is an entertaining, heartwarming, sweet and sexy friends to lovers story that I’m sure many will enjoy.
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.
