fullsizeoutput_68

A Standalone Contemporary Romance Novel

NY Times, USA To-day, and #1 Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author, Penelope Ward

RELEASE DATE: Monday, August 27, 2018

Synopsis

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel.

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.

Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary.

Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.

From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.

She was an addiction.

At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.

Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman.

But I couldn’t really have her.

I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.

So I took a chance.

And that was when our love story really began.

My Review

Heading into Love Online, I really didn’t know what to expect; the blurb didn’t give too much away, so as Ryder’s side of the story began, I didn’t anticipate the true nature of Ryder and Eden’s online ‘relationship,’ and while I feel like that was Penelope Ward’s intention, it took me awhile to wrap my head around how this cam girl and cam john were connecting, and even after their feelings began to turn into something real, the screen was not the best way to explore what was developing between them, especially given the nature of Eden’s online persona and the transactions and interactions that Ryder had to endure as he watched his online lady do what she had to do in order to provide for herself and a very important little boy who needed her in all ways possible. 

But, as Eden’s perspective became a part of the story line, I was able to understand the reasons behind her actions, especially after Ward introduced readers to Ollie and illustrated how amazing he is and the assistance that he needs. Eden’s life is so much different than Ryder’s life is and that therein lies the problem…how Ryder and Eden make something work between them despite their differences in lifestyles and locations, keeping in mind that the decisions they make not only impact them but a 10 year old boy who is desperate to feel loved and have a family.

Ollie and Lorena, a constant presence in Ryder’s life since he was little, played pivotal roles in helping this couple find their way, not only to love but also to how they truly wanted to live their lives, and I appreciated the fact that the major conflict was not really another person but where they lived and why it needed to be that way. Those obstacles that stood in their way were realistically portrayed given the reality of what made up Ryder and Eden’s lives and the fact that they didn’t make decisions without really thinking things through speaks to the type of people they are and what they’re willing to do for love.

Love Online’s storyline is definitely a unique take on what kind of relationships develop through the World Wide Web; I’ve read a few other stories that provide insight into the type of profession a cam girl has and what her interactions with her viewers/customers entail, but Ryder and Eden’s story takes things even further because they meet in real life and as readers witness the development of the hero and the heroine’s relationship, the way things evolve speaks to just how real it’s been between them from the very beginning.
