Blog Tour & Giveaway: Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward!

Rating: 5 stars
Synopsis: 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.

I've read quite a few of these authors standalone and co-written books and I've loved all of them, so I was really looking forward to this book! The synopsis of this book was very intriguing and it made me want to know more! The publisher then included this book in one of their emails and I requested a review copy! I was accepted and made it my next read! After reading, I can say that I enjoyed this book a lot! I was drawn in right from the first chapter and it only took me a few sittings to read! The plot also made me emotional and there were quite a few scenes where I had tears streaming down my face because the scene really touched me and it showed how far the characters had come! The plot also had plenty of romance in it and I loved the way the romance developed! It allowed for plenty of seriously hot scenes too! There also wasn't any action and suspense, but the romance was definitely enough to keep me wanting to read on! The characters were also amazing and made this book even better! Luca was the main female character, and I felt for her in this book because she suffered from panic attacks and had agoraphobia because of a tragic situation that left her with a lot of guilt! Luca came a long way in this book though and I was impressed by how far she was able to come to terms with what she had been through! It showed how strong she was and her determination! I also connected with Luca all the way through this book! Griffin was the main male character and love interest of Luca! I loved Griffin a lot in this book! There was something very likeable about him and he was open with Luca in his letters, even though he did hold something big back from her! He did this to protect Luca though! Griffin was protective of Luca and he supported her and tried his best to help her! This made me have a lot of respect for him! Griffin had also made an amazing life for himself and he appreciated the life that he had! I loved that this book was written from both Luca and Griffin's point of views! I wasn't sure if it was going to be written from dual point of view because the synopsis gives the impression that it's only going to be written from the female character's point of view, but I'm really happy that Griffin's point of view was in there too! It made me enjoy this book more and it helped me connect more with both Luca and Griffin and understand them as well! It allowed for more things to happen in the plot as well, which helped as Luca and Griffin didn't spend every second of the plot together and were going through their own situations! I can also completely understand why this book is a standalone! I'm really sad that it is because I would love to read more on Luca and Griffin, but the ending was left at the perfect place and summed up their story beautifully! I now can't wait to read more from these authors! I still have some of their books to read and can't wait to see what they're going to release next as well! The cover for this book is also seriously hot! I loved it as soon as I saw it and I love how well it matches what happens in the book! The cover model is also perfect for the character of Griffin! Big thank you to Montlake Romance, Vi, Penelope, and Netgalley for an ARC of Dirty Letters!
