Book Review: Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland

Dear Bridget,
I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.
So, here goes.
We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.
But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.
I want you.
The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.
So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.
No questions asked.
Think about it.
Or don’t.
Whatever you choose.
It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.

Short and Sweet: Holy steamy, Batman.

I tend to ignore adult novels. I tend to stick more to NA or YA just ’cause it’s my comfort zone. But I am so happy that I decided to pick this one up.

This book was sweet, steamy and heartwarming. It was also written in such a laid back way. I love beautiful descriptions as much as the next person, but sometimes I don’t want to hear about how the soft warm breeze whispered through the copper leaved trees and just want to read about the characters. I want to know where they’re going, what they’re doing and not so much about what they’re apparently paying attention to. (Which, no one pays attention to that stuff, let’s be real)

The banter between Bridget and Simon was so much fun to read. The authors definitely built up that flirtation and sexual tension so well. They were a good match and even though it took a while for anything to really happen, it didn’t drag on or seem boring in any way.

And Simon’s interactions with Bridget’s son? They were so sweet and so adorable.

So even though the cover is kind of trashy, don’t let that stop you from reading this book. It’s so much deeper than smut. Don’t get me wrong, there’s sex scenes in this novel… but very well written sex scenes and a story line that makes you fall in love with the characters.
