REVIEW – LOVE ONLINE by Penelope Ward

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.

 

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FOUR STARS*****

My life had been dark for a couple of years, and connecting with Ryder had given me something to look forward to each day, something just for me and no one else. He was truly my guilty pleasure.

 

 

 

 

I have to admit that I didn’t read the blurb when I signed up to review Love Online. Penelope Ward is just one of many authors that I have placed on my automatic must-read list. I assumed that the couple in this story was going to meet via an online dating service. I was completely wrong. I can’t say that I’ve ever read a story in which the romance started off in this most unconventional way. It isn’t my idea of the perfect romance, but somehow the author made it work.

It starts off in the Hero, Ryder McNamara’s point of view. I didn’t fall in love with him right away. He came across as arrogant and one dimensional to me. It wasn’t until Eden and Ollie’s appearance in the story that I began to witness the layers of Ryder’s character. At that point, I was able to connect with the plot and found the book hard to put down.

 

 

I can only imagine how challenging it must be for an author to come up with original storylines and I really think that Penelope Ward nailed it with this one.

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 4
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4
Angst: 3
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 4
