REVIEW BLITZ/ LIVE ALERT ~ DRUNK DIAL By Penelope Ward

BUY NOW

Amazon | Audio | iBooks | Nook | Kobo | Amazon Paperback

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.

Penelope Ward is a New York Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling author of thirteen novels. With over a million books sold, her titles have placed on the New York Times Bestseller list sixteen times. She is the proud mother of a beautiful 12-year-old girl with autism (the inspiration for the character Callie in Gemini) and a 10-year-old boy. Penelope, her husband, and kids reside in Rhode Island.

T3 - Drunk dial.jpg teaser

Rana Saloomi; grew up believing she wasn’t pretty and often looking like a tomboy.  Living with a beautiful mother that didn’t care about her really affected the way she looked at herself.  After her mother run away with another man; she rebel against her father and got in a lot of trouble.  Not only did she have gotten in trouble but she made a lot of mistakes that scar her for life. 
Landon Roderick used to have it all and one truth changed his life forever.  He moved from Michigan to California searching for answers he never really got.  Instead he made bad choices; he grew up to be smoking hot but with his tatted body and piercing he was a total bad boy.  Landon was putting his life together and making his business grows until he got a call that brought his past back and new choices he had to make.

Rana had the biggest crush on Landon since little.  They lived together until her parents disappeared; leaving everything behind and so she left Landon.  However; things were not as it seemed she always believed Landon had forgotten about her, so she resented him for it.  One drunken night she looked him up and dials him.

“I’d lived for so many years feeling alone and scared. For the first time in my life, I felt truly safe.”

T2 - Drunk Dial.jpg teaser

“It’s funny how the things that we once looked at as tragic are exactly what needed to happen, in retrospect.”

 

Landon and Rana reconnect after that silly phone call.  Rana had made so many mistakes that she invested her time working as a dancer at a restaurant and never let any man in to do more heart breaking damage.  Landon was a player he always wanted a connection but he hadn’t found the right person.  The long conversations made these two connect and each day that passed they become more and more attractive to one another. 

I really liked this story a lot.  Landon was so sweet and understanding; their first date over the phone was absolutely amazing I seriously loved it.  Rana was a hilarious character because without even thinking she would make Landon laugh and I felt that they were perfect for each other.  The side characters were likable specially Lilith; she was a smart and funny little girl who Rana cared for a lot and I absolutely adored their times together.  Rana’s father was unique and special, he was supportive and a loving father to her.

Overall I really enjoyed this story.  I was hooked from page one, I grin and laugh so much and even had teary eyes on one special scene. Readers who enjoy second chance romance will find this book appealing.

It’s supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget.

Jade has increasingly less to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s happy with this fact. 

Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted. 

Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile. 

She lives in the Herefordshire countryside with a couple of hounds and a guy who’s able to cope with her inherent weirdness. 

She has a red living room, decorated with far more zebra print than most people could bear and fights a constant battle with her addiction to Coca-Cola.

Blurb:

“Love had been stolen from me for reasons entirely my fault. But then a miracle
happened, and Pim gave me something I thought was lost forever. She gave me a love
I’d earned. Love that ruined me. Love that made me hopelessly hers…”

Once upon a time, I didn’t think I’d ever be normal.
Now, I’m talking and trusting, and it’s all thanks to Elder.

He gave me my life back, and I gave him my heart, but love stories like ours are never

simple.

I did something to protect him.
He did something to survive me.
We screwed up.

And now, it’s no longer just about us.
It’s about safety, sanctuary, and sin.

THICK is LIVE!

THICK is the last book in the Filthy F*ckers Series and can be read as a stand alone.

SYNOPSIS:

BOBBI – Tate Reynolds was muscular, tattooed, and handsome. Seeing beyond his physical attributes allowed me to understand that the man beneath all the muscles was a compassionate, kind, and understanding romantic. I wanted him so bad I could taste it. There was only one real problem.

He was an inmate in prison.

And, I was a prison guard.

TATE – Bobbi Madden was gorgeous. We talked every day for two months. During that time, I learned more about her than any other woman I’d ever met. I wanted to get my hands on her so bad I ached.

But. Ex-cons and prison guards don’t mix well in the real world.

And, I was hopping on my Harley and heading back to the real world.

If only…

THICK is a Stand Alone Steamy Contemporary Romance novel with no cheating, no sex outside the relationship, and no abuse of women. The hero is strong and loyal, and the heroine is not a doormat. This is a HEA novel with no cliffhanger.

Evi Devil suffered abuse and a life-altering experience when she was a only 9 years old. Since then, Evi adapted as best as she could despite her memories but as she turns 21, an event triggers her need to get answers and finally reconcile what she’s felt for all these years. Returning to the place of origin, Evi’s quest painfully begins.

“I don’t feel like a complete person. I’m particles of a whole but the whole is fragmented and floating like dust particles caught in the stream of light, visible only when it shines through a crack in the window.”


As Evi becomes reacquainted with Max, a friend from the past, she feels a deep connection with him but her mind won’t budge as to the closeness they share. Sensing Evi is in a precarious situation, Max is sensitive to her emotions and tries to help her in every way he knows how.

“He was a good thing in my life before; I can feel it deep in my soul.”


In addition to their friendship, Evi is incredibly attracted to Max which she doesn’t try to hide from him. While Max doesn’t want to push Evi in the wrong direction, he isn’t afraid to give Evi exactly what she wants. With Max’s honed to perfection body and need to envelop Evi, their sexual chemistry is palpable and leads to unadulterated hot scenes.

“His palms move down to my ass cheeks, squeezing and guiding me up and over him, skin slapping skin and the wet juices slurping as he plunges so deep inside me he may never be able to leave.”


Told from Evi’s perspective, Devil sets an insidious tone from the first page. Getting inside Evi’s mind is a perilous investment due to the feeling of uncertainty and there isn’t any other option but to empathize with her memories and emotions. Creating a character like Evi is complex because while she has vulnerabilities and self-doubt, she is also a survivor in need of a re-boot. With the addition of Max, his measured and easy personality compliments Evi by giving her the space and comfort she so desperately needs. 

With the character highs and lows, I felt every moment whether it was despair, lust, anger or affection. In trying to decipher clues, the suspenseful plot arrangement and steady pace intensifies the need for answers within a richly layered narrative. Evi’s plight isn’t easy yet I was with her the entire way. Additionally, Max’s tenderness is absolutely endearing and panty melting.

In Devil, Ker Dukey successfully brings the reader into the unsteady mind of a character that is struggling to find normalcy. It’s a story that is atmospherically tragic yet offers hope and a chance to find contentment in a uniquely moving way. For those who enjoy twisty suspense, Devil offers a powerful dose of sentiment and thrill. I highly recommend!
