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.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Before I even begin my review, I want to tell you that this author is amazing! I have read a few of her books and loved each one. Her writing style is addictive. You can’t help but turn pages until the end. I read this book in one sitting. Unfortunately I started it after dinner so I was exhausted by the time I turned the last page. I could barely keep my eyes open through the last chapters. I didn’t care. I was so engrossed in this story that there was no way I was going to be able to sleep unless I got my happily-ever-after first.
And oh how sweet it was.
You know from the blurb that Ryder and Eden first meet online. But what you don’t know are the specifics. I can tell you that I inferred wrong. It was not what I expected. I admit at first, I wasn’t sure that Eden would be a heroine I liked. But guess what? Not only did I love her, I respected the hell out of her! Eden is definitely one of my favorite heroines of the year.
And don’t even get me started on the perfection of Ryder. Just wow! What a sexy, sweet, caring man. A gentlemen in every sense of the word. Gosh, a character mold was definitely broken here.
As you know, Ryder and Eden meet online. At first, Ryder isn’t sure what he is feeling. But quickly, he becomes hooked. Eden isn’t like anyone he has ever met. She is not only beautiful, she is caring and completely selfless. But unfortunately, she is wary and wants to keep her true identity a secret. However, that does not deter Ryder from pursuing her.
There are secondary characters in this book that you will love. There may even be one or two you don’t. I found this book to be refreshing and real. There were sad moments that broke my heart. I worried over the angst and wondered where the author would take us. So, yes, while this book has a good amount of angst, I was so pleased with how there was little to no drama. Ryder and Eden grew in their relationship with each plot twist. They became one of my favorite book couples of the year. These two beautiful souls deserved love and they deserved that from each other.
I really need to read more of this author. Penelope Ward is quickly moving up my “favorites” list. So if you’re looking for a sexy read that is emotional and 100% swoon-worthy, I highly recommend Love Online.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time read it. 🙂
