Dirty Letters Blog Tour - Review + Tourwide Giveaway

I’d never forgotten him—a man I’d yet to meet.

Purchase: [Amazon] [Chapters/Indigo]

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.

If you've read my review on HATE NOTES, there'll be no surprise when I tell you I was so psyched to dive into DIRTY LETTERS, the latest from authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. It was an instant sell to me because a) I adored HATE NOTES to pieces, b) absolutely loved the writing, and c) the scenes were vivid and oh-so-swoony. I was confident before reading that Dirty Letters would be just the same. I was so ready for another drop-dead gorgeous hero and conquering heroine.

Dirty Letters by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward focuses on the dual perspectives of Griffin and Luca. Two pen pals matched with one another at a very young age, the two had been the closest of friends for years without having ever met each other. That is, until disaster strikes Luca's life, and she pulls away from Griffin and begins to avoid his letters. Years later, Luca suddenly receives a new letter from Griffin, but it's not the kind of letter she was hoping. It's filled with rage, anger, and regret. That's when Luca decides to respond with the truth of what happened all those years ago in hopes of rekindling whatever friendship she once had with Griffin. It works, however now that both Griffin and Luca are adults, more than just a childhood connection sparks between the two.

Did I know before reading Dirty Letters that I needed a saucy and romantic pen pal tale? Nope, but I'm glad it exists! Luca and Griffin's letters to one another were something else! They posed a quirky dialogue, with hilarious quips and swoon-worthy words, and I absolutely loved reading them. Luca was also an amazing character. She was fierce in the way she stood her ground and focused on herself and her own growth and trials. In addition, Griffin too was a fierce character in facing his own challenges, as a child and as an adult. They both worked together so incredibly well! Also - lets not forget Doc! Doc was an essential key character that pushed Luca's growth, and he was also a recurring character I found to be extremely quirky and wise.

Overall, I absolutely adored Dirty Letters, so much so I re-read it a second time the following day!
