ARC Review: Dirty Letters by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward top my list of favorite authors ever. Whatever they write, both as individuals and together, I read. I have to say that I was super excited about reading this one though, as I am a sucker for any story involving letters/pen pals. I knew I would enjoy this book because of the authors, but it was also a really good story that I think readers are going to enjoy just as much as I did. 

Griffin and Luca were great for one another. I loved their connection, both in the past and present. The fact that they were so close from a young age really just solidified their bond and relationship. I felt for both of them and what they had each been through, both of them having experienced such difficult things alone. It broke my heart, yet I was so glad that they were able to reconnect. They belonged together, but their journey wasn’t an easy one. While I felt for Luca, I will admit I had a tough time relating to her. There were times that I just felt like I couldn’t really understand her or what made her the way she was even with all she had been through. Honestly though, that was just a personal thing as I have never been through anything close to what she had been through and have never had to face any kind of anxiety like she suffered from. I absolutely adored Griffin though, and I was so happy that Luca had him. 

Overall, this was a great book. I would have liked to have been able to connect more with Luca, but that didn’t stop my enjoyment of this book or Griffin. He was amazing, and I couldn’t get enough. I read this book in pretty much one sitting because I had to know what would happen next and how things would turn out. I definitely recommend this one and can’t wait to see what Penelope and Vi have in store for readers next.

ARC Review: The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan

I absolutely love Kennedy Ryan! Her writing style is so easy to get lost in and never fails to captivate me from the very first word. I would read anything from her at this point, and I don’t even read her blurbs anymore, knowing that whatever it is I am going to read it. The Kingmaker was no exception, I went into this one blind and I loved every bit of it! I don’t know how she does it, but with each book her writing just seems to get better! Kennedy Ryan is at the top of my favorite authors list, and this book just reaffirmed that for me. 

Lennix and Maxim were everything! They were absolutely what I have come to expect from Kennedy Ryan when it comes to her characters. Unique and captivating, I loved them as individuals. But as much as I loved them separately, I adored them together. They were that once in a lifetime type of connection and love and I couldn’t get enough. 

I couldn’t put this book down and I can’t wait for more! I found myself wanting to read faster for more of Lennix and Maxim’s story, yet I also wanted to savor every word as well. I think readers are going to love this one! While this isn’t the end for these characters, I urge you to read this one! It is so worth it, and I have every faith that Kennedy Ryan will do the characters and story justice as only she can with the next installment in their journey. This is a must read!!
