REVIEW – DIRTY LETTERS by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland


From New York Times bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes an unexpected love story that starts long before the lovers meet.

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.

”We all have light and dark inside us, love. We try to hide the darkness from others because we’re afraid it will scare them away. But your dark doesn’t scare me, Luca. It only makes me want to hold your hand and be your light until you can find your own again. That’s what people do when they’re in love. I won’t always be able to give you your light back, because sometimes you need to find that within yourself, but I’ll stand by your side and hold your hand in the dark so things aren’t so scary.”



This book is EVERYTHING that is truly amazing about the writing duo of Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland. “DIRTY LETTERS” is going down as my absolute TOP FAVORITE by these two incredible authors. It had so many things that I love in a good romance– friends-to-lovers trope, a gorgeous British Rock God as the Hero, and some gut-wrenching angst. Griffin Marchese has all of the traits to make him one of the most unforgettable and beloved book boyfriends. I instantly fell so hard for this beautiful character.

”DIRTY LETTERS” is a true page-turner! It’s one of those books that you will want to immerse yourself in without any interruptions. I am not exaggerating when I say it’s unputdownable!! Griffin and Luca’s story is so heartachingly beautiful and at times agonizingly angsty but it was so worth the pain!! I loved that they started off as childhood penpals and later became true soul mates.






Here are my overall ratings:
Hero: 5++++
Heroine: 5
Angst: 4.5
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5+++++

Quite a few books are releasing this week, but ”DIRTY LETTERS” is the one you should bump to the top of the list! I HIGHLY recommend this one!
