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 13 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 stand-alone.

I like Penelope Ward's books. I liked this book right until one of the last chapters and I still can't quite fathom out why it was included. In my opinion it wasn't necessary. It didn't add to the story, so why include it.
Otherwise another good read from Penelope Ward and narrated by the brilliant Andi Arndt.

Mind blowing twists and raw emotion!
Did I just devour this audiobook in one day? Why yes! Yes, I did. Once again, Penelope Ward delivers an amazing story. When it comes crafting an intriguing, engaging and shocking plot full of twists you never saw coming, this author is simply brilliant. Add in unique characters with fantastic chemistry, and this story really has it all. Top recommendation for this year! Once again, I'm just BLOWN AWAY. Standing ovation to Andi Arndt for delivering an amazing performance for a one of kind character and for somehow not breaking down into a sobbing mess during key scenes of her performance. I did all the crying for both of us instead.

Surprisingly charming, hot, funny, sweet, good!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
The author's timing was impeccable for her twists and turns and funny moments. This book was a surprise. I was not a die-hard fan of this author before, she was barely on my radar, but she is a new favorite!
What did you like best about this story?
The story drew me in from the start. The premise of the entire first "drunk dial" was plausible and it kept me riveted from there. The characters were real, had great personalities, and the dialogue was spot on for every occasion. The sexual scenarios were good, and everything was well written. Days later, I am still thinking about these characters and how their lives might be doing. I seldom do that with ANY book...
What does Andi Arndt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Her perfect pronunciation is appreciated, and her vocal inflections capture the true spirit of the author's intentions for her characters. She's fantastic.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I laughed. I wanted to cry in a few places too!
Any additional comments?
Download. Listen. It's worth every penny or credit. :)
