Rana Saloomi is chronically single, living with a creepy roommate in Michigan. After a particularly trying night at her belly dancing job and a little too much wine, she decides to call up her old crush and neighbor. She doesn’t expect him to answer, let alone call back and strike up a conversation. What I really loved about Rana was her realness. We all have body issues and insecurities. Rana isn't perfect and Landon loves her flaws and her crazy.
“Over the years, I’d thought about Landon a lot. Never once had I considered looking him up or contacting him, though. Until now.”
Landon Roderick moved from Michigan after high school to make his way in Los Angeles. After some crazy lessons learned, he’s a business owner running a food truck gaining popularity all over the LA coast. He’s never forgotten about Rana over the years but never expected to hear from her either. Landon's got his own skeletons and secrets, and Rana realizes she needs to overlook them to get their relationship on the right track.
“You’re a mystery…but you’re good for my soul, Rana.”
So here’s what we’ve got: single Rana and Landon. Both had feelings for each other as teens but were too young and nervous to ever act on it. Rana has roots built in Michigan and if it wasn’t for that, she’d head to LA to be with Landon.
“I fell in love hard with the flawed girl who drunk dialed me and makes me laugh.”
I. Loved. This. Book. I know I say that a lot with Penelope Ward’s writing, but seriously, I loved it! Drunk Dial is fresh and fun with Penelope’s signature comedic writing style, but so much heart as well. There were a few jaw-dropping moments for me that had me constantly turning that page. Drunk Dial is easily one of my top reads for 2017. It hit on all levels for me and really kept me guessing until the end.
By the end of the first chapter I was literally hooked. Completely into this story and couldn't wait to see how everything played out between Rana and Landon.
Drunk Dial was funny, sweet, swoony and heart melting romance that you just want to read while relaxing in your backyard next to your Koi pond while listening to a waterfall. So I just described exactly how I read this book. It was the perfect reading scenario for a book lover.
Landon and Rana's story had me feeling completely giddy. I mean the intro to these two reconnecting was thrilling, a little or a lotta nerve racking and I could picture myself in Lana's shoes. There were moments in this story where my heart leapt out of my chest from being nervous as hell to being completely smitten with Landon.
And at a certain points in the book I felt myself welling up a bit from some of the emotional heavy we get along with the sweet romance.
This was one of those book that you definitely Swoon about and I would absolutely recommend this if you are looking for a romance that will make you feel all types of giddy while pulling at your heartstrings.
Drunk dial....who hasn't done that when they are a little or a lot buzzed. Some are worth it and some just leave you shaking your head the next day and wonder what the heck you were thinking. This was one Drunk Dial that was totally written in the stars as memories from the past created a beautiful pathway to the present and future.
I absolutely loved the journey we were immersed in between Rana and Landon. Both had secrets that they had buried. Their story was written so beautifully and this was probably my favorite Penelope Ward book to date! It's definitely one of my top reads of 2017.
In true Penelope fashion, this book took a few turns that I didn't see coming. It was emotionally charged, heartfelt. She has a way of writing that I experience every emotion in just a few pages. I snort laughed, swooned, fanned myself and also cried and got goosebumps all within minutes.
Highly recommend this read. It truly is a standout novel.
