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

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I'd never been able to forget--even though he so easily forgot about me--and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you've had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him--unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn't think he'd call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he'd become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn't know. And he had his own secrets.

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

This was an amazing story. I've read so many books by Penelope and Vi and this has been added to the books I will gladly reread. This book kept me delving deeper and deeper into their story. I could feel almost every emotion that they each shared. Just in love with these flawed characters. Good job.

My third book by this author and once again I really enjoyed it! At first, I was a little unsure. I figured that the main character must have some kind of scar or something, but the reason that she didn't want to show her face to Landon was a total surprise to me. Although I was unable to understand exactly how she felt in the one comment she made, so much of the story was really good besides that. Landon was a dream guy, and I don't quite get why she got upset over his big reveal, because really, how was that any worse than a guy who had just been a straight out manwhore? But then there was the whole big part of the story that had to do with her secret, as well as her "little sis", and that had me in tears, and I couldn't stop listening. A great story!

Drunk Dial by Penelope Ward (Audiobook) Narrated by Andi Arndt 5 Stars - This book was great! Had me laughing out loud early on and all throughout. I loved all the random texts and phone calls, creates the nice slow burn kinda feel. I liked the childhood friends aspect as well. Rana and Landon (so far I haven’t met a hero named Landon I didn't like.. anyway) they were a fun pair to watch fall in love. Andi Arndt does such an amazing job narrating. This book was a definite win for me. ~Paragraphs and Petticoats~

Drunk Dial was definitely entertaining as all Penelope Ward books are, but this one had a lot of seriousness and emotion to it as well. The storyline was different from what I thought it would, but I still really enjoyed it. It kept me interested and curious to find out all the secrets. I feel for both Rana and Landon and everything they went through and are still going through. I really liked their relationship and how they reconnect and how it grows throughout the book. They have a strong connection with one another and have each other's backs; they're a great pairing. I wish there could have been a few Landon chapters here and there just to get a glimpse inside his head, but at least the epilogue was in his perspective. It was a well written book with great character development and a solid storyline.

This is my second Penelope Ward novel and it did not disappoint! This novel is hilarious, sad, hot, and real. I loved getting to see all of the emotional secrets come out slowly throughout the book, while still keeping tons of laugh out loud and steamy moments. I loved getting to know these characters and all of their flaws because the flaws are what make people beautiful. There are some heavy topics that are brought up in here but I think the author did a great job talking about them without making it offensive. (I didn't experience these things first hand, but the way they were explained made sense). It had a great story and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance with a bit of secrets!

Ok.So.Yeah. I was skeptical at first. I had no idea how Ms. Ward was going to turn a drunk dial into a complete story. I should’ve known better LoL. I should’ve had faith because OMG it was amazing. When you pick this up be ready to ignore your life and devour it whole. I ended up loving the premise, glad it wasn’t as random as I’d assumed. I loved Rana and Landon immediately. When both had to confess their secrets I was stunned and didn’t see them coming. I thought it was handled realistically and over time. It wasn’t just soul bearing and then immediate acceptance. Bottom line it’s another great story from Ms. Ward.

Drunk Dial is a great title for this book, because that is exactly what Rana Saloomi did one night after a little too much wine. She had never forgotten her friend from thirteen years ago, Landon Roderick, after all to her he was more than a friend. She cannot believe that she looked him up and actually called him, but that one decision leads to more calls and text, and to the realization that Landon had never forgotten her either. This is a sweet, emotional, sexy, funny, and romantic read. Both the characters have flaws, and they both have fun jobs in my opinion, except for the snake, lol. Her roommate Lenny is kind of weird, well really weird until you find out why. I absolutely loved her daddy. Also the fact that she kept notes from Landon, after all these years, well he also kept a Rubik's cube that belonged to her. Anyway, you don't want to miss this standalone romance by Penelope Ward. I give this one five "tell me something funny" stars, I loved it!

I've read all of the books so far co-written by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland. But I think this is the first book I've read my Ms. Ward herself. I have to say I really enjoyed it. It was fairly comical when Rana calls Landon out of the blue when she was stinking drunk. But the renewing of an old friendship and the start of a new romance was fun to watch. My absolute favorite has to be the thought and planning Landon put into their first date. And as everyone's secrets came out, it was interesting seeing how the other dealt with the reveal. Definitely a page turner. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Penelope is one of my favorite authors and she hasn't let me down yet! This book is erotic, funny, sad and of course romantic. I loved the way Lando view things after seeing it through someone else's eyes. I really felt what he what he was describing. Great job!!! Give me more!!!

While the premise of how Rana and Brandon reconnected was weird, the story was great as they both coped with what life threw at them over the tears. I was shocked when Rana revealed to Brandon the truth about Lilith, but as cried when he put together the book to give to the young girl and added his own story at the end.
