Review Blitz ~ Drunk Dial by Penelope Ward


Drunk Dial is LIVE!!!


Book Description:

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.

“Do you have a Rana? If not, I feel really bad for you. So, I don’t want to be Rana when I grow up. Because there’s only one Rana. And she’s my friend.”


Drunk Dial is not what you would expect from the title…yes this does begin with a drunk dial, but the story was so much more than one intoxicated phone call. Our hero and heroine had been friends when they were younger until they were thirteen. Best friends and neighbours, until one was taken from the other. One bottle of wine later, one rant for not trying to find the other and old wounds are opened and one long distance friendship begins. These two had history and a lot of chemistry…surely distance was something they could overcome once they ironed out their past? Rana Banana and Landon’s Lunchbox will have you swooning in no time!


“In many ways, our story was a lot like the Rubik’s Cube – colourful and complicated. It took years to work it out, but then suddenly like magic, on a random Sunday, everything all came together.”


Rana Saloomi was incredibly lonely, her past was that of a poor family, a mother who deserted her and a father who stifled her with the best intentions. Rana Saloomi had made a lot of mistakes, ones that she had learned from and had no desire to repeat, but with abandonment issues and self-esteem issues, the chances of putting herself out there were slim to none. Despite the above though her profession as a belly dancer was something she enjoyed, despite the low self-esteem and one where she could forget and where more importantly no-one knew her.


“She may be imperfect, but her love for you isn’t. It’s unbreakable.”


Landon Roderick was not the boy that Rana once knew. Long gone was the thirteen-year-old neighbour that seemingly had the world at his feet. In his place was a man that was a little lost, tattooed and yet had turned the corner and was trying to make the best out of the hand he had been dealt. Landon went away to find himself, something he hadn’t yet found…but it seems his answers may have found him after one drunken phone call.


“…a wise boy once told me that ‘maybe it’s not really a mistake if you learn from it.’”


I loved Landon and Rana’s back stories, neither was perfect, neither knew their place in life, both were still searching for answers. I adored the too and fro of their messages and their chats as they reconnected. Landon had such a huge heart and it was obvious from the beginning that he had a lot of love to give. Rana was such an adorable heroine, despite her insecurities, which I have to admit were not what I was anticipating. The effect the relationship we have with our parents can be what moulds us, but also in the extreme can break us and Rana’s past did just that.

Penelope Ward delivers a book that I didn’t expect. This was emotional at times, heart breaking and all-consuming. The banter between Landon and Rana was relatable, believable and honest and their connection only grows in real time. While I will admit the ILY came quite quickly, because of their history and the amount of time they had spent catching up and reconnecting it did not bother me and I found myself swept away in their story.

This was a fantastic story, one I couldn’t put down and one that totally blindsided me. It just goes to show how much a title can skew your expectations, I thought I was getting one thing and yet, I got something so much better. Adored this one!!

“There’s a fine line between sexual tension and smelly farts.”


Angie Stanton is a new to me author and this one was chosen because of two things…Strictly Come Dancing is my guilty pleasure…and I adore this cover. It is funny what makes you pick up a book and this was one that I was extremely glad I did. This was a quick, cute, romantic read where romance doesn’t come from where you think.

The reality dancing TV show element was my absolute favourite, I could picture myself behind the scenes of one of my favourite TV shows, one that I spend all my winter weekends watching. If Ever gives you a bird’s eye view of what really happens and it is as if Angie Stanton has actually been a production crew member…maybe she has? I loved the warts and all storyline, the training, the banter, jealousies and insecurities, but most of all, love, love finding you when you least expect it and especially with whom.

Chelsea was the first non-celebrity to take part in Celebrity Dance Off, Chelsea was dubbed “America’s Chance to Dance.” One drunken audition had led her to this reality TV show and she was so far out of her depth she was drowning. Chelsea had a lot of insecurities and vulnerabilities and having the cameras pointed at her 24/7 was not helping.

Tom was a gorgeous Brit on Broadway, a singer/song-writer and thespian. Tom oozed that British charm and when Chelsea and her dance partner chose one of his songs to dance to, he instantly became enamoured.


“He’s like a mirage in a desert, a handsome man with a beautiful heart.”


Chelsea was a great character, she was real, honest and relatable. We often come across abandonment issues in books, but with Chelsea I actually felt them. Angie Stanton does a great job with her character connection and Chelsea is one of those heroines that you just want to give a big hug to and try and support them in any way possible.


“You’ve just been knocked down a lot. Every time you gain momentum, something happens. I curse all the bad luck and dark bastards that have hurt you, but you’re letting your fears drive you into making a terrible decision.”


The cast of secondary characters was fantastic, many different personalities as you would expect with reality TV and each one had their own part to play. As I said above, I lived this story and while I do feel that some of the storyline could have been trimmed a little, I sincerely didn’t care. I loved the chemistry between Chelsea and Tom, it was a flickering ember in the beginning and Angie Stanton gave it the legs to grow. I loved the journey that these two took, I was glad it wasn’t at all instant and that both of them took their time in getting to know one and other, they helped each other and were there for one and other. Overall, a cute romance that any Dancing with the Stars / Strictly Come Dancing addict will devour with gusto, but even if not, the characters hold their own and for me, I couldn’t put it down.

toyingwithher

Book Description:

No one said finding love was easy, but when you invented the world’s best selling vibrator, it’s near impossible. Yep, that’s right. That little toy hidden in your bedside table is my brain child. It’s aptly named Woman on Top. And you know what they say . . . it’s lonely at the top.

So I’m headed home to my Southern roots. It’s supposed to be an extended Summer vacation — nothing more. But Rorke Weston has other plans for me. Plans that not only involve me being on top, but also underneath him. 

It’s been said you never forget your first. For me, that’s definitely true. No night has ever lived up to the one I spent with Rorke. 

He’s turned into quite a man. Tan from the Southern sun, and stubborn as the day is long. And there’s nothing sweeter than the swipe of his tongue. 

Rorke wants his chance. The one we never had. But that was a long time ago. When I still believed in Prince Charming and Happily Ever Afters. Even ten years later, I feel a pull. And it’s not simply Rorke yanking down my panties. 


Do second chances really happen? Or is my heart simply toying with me?

“I think I was made to love you.”


Prescott Lane delivers a hilarious and extremely cute read with Toying with Her. This book contained one of the most hilarious lines I have ever read, I had tears rolling down my face and got a stitch. I loved the Southern sayings, I loved Momma with a passion and I fell in love with our hero and heroine. The South’s small towns are well known for being stuck in the dark ages, where the bible is the be all and end all, small minds are rife and pack mentality is ever present and our heroine’s home town was no different.


“Sterling…You deal with clits, not c*nts. Let’s go.”


On the outside Sterling had everything, she had her own business, she was a multi-millionaire, she had fame, a life that most would be enviable of, but at the end of the day her material wealth meant nothing. Sterling was incredibly lonely, she invented the most famous dildo, men either wanted her money or were emasculated by it, some were intimidated by what she invented and the fact that they could never compare. No matter what, she had no success with the opposite sex. Sterling’s job had even alienated her from her home town. Anyone who got close, got hurt and so Sterling stayed alone.


“Put wishes in one hand and shit in the other, and see which one fills up first.”


Only one man had made Sterling feel anything, he was her best friend, her first and the only orgasm she had ever had without using one of her own inventions. Sterling graded all men against him and none stood a chance, going back to her home town would put them on a collision course, but a summer spent at home is just what the doctor ordered.


“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” ~ Emily Bronte


Rorke was simply adorable, he has only ever loved one woman…Sterling, she was his first, she was his best friend and no woman had ever compared. Rorke wasn’t perfect, but he was honest and relatable. Rorke was your typical southern man with an ego the size of Texas, where a man is the provider and he looks after his woman. However, when these two come face to face once again all those old feelings come flooding back and while many years have passed that chemistry hasn’t forgotten.


“My dad said love has to be stubborn. Love makes us drunk. Love makes us stupid. Love makes the world go round.”


A story of second chances, of compromise, of adjustment. It was cute, it was hot, it was hilarious, it was swoony, it was romantic, I cried tears of laughter and tears of sadness but most of all it was full of love. Absolutely loved it, another winner from Prescott Lane.


“You may be the woman on top, but I’m the man holding you up there.”


Excerpt: 

I know exactly where I want this kiss to go now. We don’t even have to move from this spot. I can take her right up against the door. My lips hover over hers, her chest rising and falling, my cock hard as a rock and pressed against her stomach. The warmth between her legs calls to me, and I bend my knees, pushing into her. She grinds right back. “Just a kiss,” I whisper, unsure whether I’m telling myself or her. We never just had a kiss. We went from kissing to sex in the same breath. And while I want her naked in my bed, I want her for more than one night this time, more than just this summer. I want that more. I’m not going to make it easy for her to dismiss me, dismiss this as a one-night stand or a summer fling. I’m not going to make it easy for her to leave me. I’m going to make it damn near impossible. Winding my hand in her long brown hair, I lower my head, letting my breath tickle the skin of her neck. Her body trembling, gently I trail kisses up her neck, letting my tongue linger ever so slightly. She tries turning her head down to me, desperate for my lips, but I grip her hair a little tighter, controlling the moment. “Rorke,” she begs breathlessly. I know she’s used to being in control. Hell, the woman is responsible for more orgasms than any man could ever be. Lifting my head to look in her eyes, I say, “I know you’re used to being in control of your pleasure. But that ends right now. When you need an orgasm, I’ll provide it. When you want a kiss, I’m your man. You may be the woman on top, but I’m the man holding you up there.”

“When I think about how pure she is, it only reminds me how dirty I am.”


EK Blair shows another side to her writing with Crave. This was so not what I was expecting. EK Blair to me, is dark, a little taboo, with erotic adults who like to explore their sexual side. Crave is about young adults (although this is NOT a YA book) as EK Blair still regales us with her trademark sex scenes. Crave was emotional, of course a little screwed up, I mean EK has to show her face somewhere, but it explores a side to teenagers that is not often explored in books.


“I don’t ever want you to feel insecure with me, because you are exactly what I want. Because when you touch me, it means so much more that what anyone else could ever give me…”


Adaline is the new girl in town, relocating due to her mother’s work. Starting a new school near the end of the school year is always difficult. Cliques are already in place and being in a private school, social tiers are prevalent, a hierarchy of sorts and a newcomer is never welcome. Ady falls into friendship with one of the popular boys and soon finds herself attracted to one of his quiet, unassuming friends. Ady, albeit from an affluent family had her own issues. Abandonment issues were at the top of them. Having been rejected by her father after once being the apple of his eye has been hard for her take and understand, and now him having a new family only exacerbates the chasm that has already formed.


“The two of us stare into each other’s brokenness, and I swear I can feel him breathing through the holes of my wounds when he begs…”


Kason is the boy from the wrong side of the tracks, only attending school due to some strings pulled and a scholarship. Kason is extremely intelligent and sees this opportunity as his ticket out of poverty. Kason is a hard worker, putting in all the hours to earn enough money to then fund university. Kason was intriguing from the get go, there was something about him that you knew made him vulnerable and it was this vulnerability that made the reader want to protect him at all costs.


“It wasn’t until Adaline came into the mix that I started to see how corrosive this craving was. It’s made me lose the one thing I never wanted to lose.”


There is a reason that this synopsis is really vague and as such, my review, too, will be vague. The author has cleverly concealed the true direction of this book and that is something I want to preserve as the journey that these characters take is one you need to experience as the author intended. As ever with an EK Blair read this book is chock full of emotion, but of a totally different kind to her norm. It is this emotion and intense character connection that makes you experience the highs and lows, you run the gamut of emotions with these characters and I often found myself trying to relate their journey to the experiences that I went through in my mid to late teens too. I felt everything that these two went through, their pain, their guilt, their insecurities, their vulnerabilities, their connection, their love, but most of all, I believed in them as a couple.


“She understands me when I don’t even understand myself. She’s forgiving when I refuse to forgive the things I’ve done. And she gives me hope in the eye of hopelessness.”


I adored every single character in this book. EK Blair really plays her trump card by delivering real, relatable characters that are fun to be around and despite their wealth have that air of normality. The dialogue and the banter between them was perfect, suited their age and their situation. When this author writes her more adult books I find myself totally consumed by her words, even if I do have to look a few up in a dictionary. With Crave, the prose was tailored to the age of her characters while still retaining the trademark EK Blair style.


“My body hunches over, and I cry because the one man who was never supposed to break my heart is the man who completely shattered it.”


I cannot wait for the concluding part, seriously, EK Blair knows how to get her hooks into you and leave you hanging for the next morsel she dares to chuck your way. These characters literally entrench themselves into your heart and Kason, in particular, was a character where my mother bear instincts went into overdrive. I am desperate for the next one, it seriously cannot come quick enough. Fabulous job EK Blair.
