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 callšcould bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.
A complete STANDALONE.

Tanya Rae’s rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Drunk Dial is a new Standalone book that I really enjoyed reading and is Rana Saloomi and Landon Roderick’s story.
As per the name of the book. Rana drunk dials Landon. When they were kids Rana moved away from Landon of course through no fault of her own. Her parents were evicted from the premises (the garage apartment that Landon’s parents owned) and Landon wasn’t there to say goodbye. Fast forward a few years and Rana had looked up Landon’s phone # and she drunk dialed Landon. The story continues from there.
This is a story that created a lot of emotions. I loved Rana & Landon’s story of reuniting after all those years. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I give Drunk Dial 4.5 Stars.
Bettina A’s Review: 4.5 Star
* I voluntarily reviewed and Arc of this book*
Rana and Landon last saw each other thirteen years ago. Best friends who always hanged out together Rana never expected her friendship with Landon to end as it did. Unfortunately Rana’s dad decided to move away and she did not say goodbye to Landon. 13 years later he’s still on her mind and she has held on to the anger of him not seen her before she left. One drunken night Rana looks up Landon and finds his information, upset and on a mission she calls him and tells him how she feels about him. Landon is surprised by the unexpected caller from his past. There’s something about Rana that keeps him wanting to talk to her and not let her go. As the two continues to talk they realize that they are not the kids from thirteen years ago. Secrets are kept on the closer and darkness lurks in the shadow of their heart. Eventually the truth comes out and it’s something they both have a hard time accepting. Can they survive each other’s past or will they cut ties and say goodbye?
Once again Penelope Ward does not disappoint. Drunk dial was a great read. I could not put the book down, scratch that I would not put the book down. I needed to know what happened between Landon and Rana. I went thru many emotions; happy, frustrated, sad, and anger. There were also moments where I was dying laughing. This was a wonderful read and I would most definitely recommend this book to other people to read.
