DIRTY LETTERS IS LIVE!
A Contemporary Romance Novel
New York Times Bestselling Authors Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward
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.

Dirty Letters – the name alone should have any romance reader eager to dive into the newest release by the writing duo of Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. And then, as the young penpals’ words from more than 8 years ago turn into playful and witty exchanges just before their correspondences transition to all kinds of dirty and sexy questions and explanations, readers anxiously await the hero and heroine’s first face-to-face encounter while also wondering how things are supposed to work out between these penpals/best friends when they realize that the connection they had all those years ago has transformed into something so much bigger but just as absolutely necessary as their letters were to each other all those years ago.
Regardless of just how easily Griffin and Luca seem to have jumped right back into the easy relationship they had, there are logistical issues as well as lifestyle issues that pose quite a few obstacles for the newfound friends and potential lovers. A rock star and a recluse live very different lives in contrasting environments, so fusing their lives together in a way that will sustain them both isn’t something that can happen without a little give and take.
I really liked how Keeland and Ward crafted Luca’s character. Luca’s survivor guilt as well as her fears and anxiety were clearly illustrated and authentically presented. Readers could feel just how overwhelmed Luca felt as she psyched herself up to start living again…to find her own happiness…even if that step compounded every single one of her issues. The fact that she was hopeful but also realistic in how things might work out between her and Griffin made her circumstances realistic and her personality endearing.
The power of words is a constant presence in both Luca and Griffin’s lives, so it makes sense that they carry a significant amount of weight in the story line, but what is just as important is the way that Luca works through her trauma, her panic attacks, and her very real concerns about crowds and unfamiliar environments. And what I loved was that she was more than willing to do the work and so was Griffin as well as Luca’s trusted Doc who both made sure that she was protected and as much at ease as she could be given the brand new life she was working to embark on by Griffin’s side.
