Drunk Dial ~ Penelope Ward

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 funny, sexy read that had a coming of age type of vibe.
It had a slow build up with pasts and secrets being revealed through steamy phone calls, sexy pictures and adorable notes!

"Tell me something Funny"

Landon is pleasantly surprised when a blast from the past decides to drunk dial him.
He was of course my favorite character.. Even through his own issues he managed to be the perfect guy.. That perfect guy that laid it all out there and sacrificed it all with out a second thought.. Where are these guys? How can I find one?

Rana had so many insecurities and hang ups.. she basically lived in the past and her guilt wouldn't let her move forward. but Thankfully... her one moment of  liquid courage was able to turn all of that around. and although vulnerable she eventually allowed Landon to slowly pull her out of this self imposed judgmental way of  viewing herself ..

"You're obsessed with the idea of me - the mystique. The reality is a mess"

Both Landon and Rana had things they both needed to overcome in order to accept each other and ultimately forgive themselves.. With time, determination, Love and a little humor they both managed to get a second chance at happiness and get the HEA they were meant to have.

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