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 is her latest standalone novel and I have to say I think it might just be my all time favorite of hers to date. There was something about this book that just sucked me in!!! I hate to say this, but I think Landon just took my top Penelope Hero spot (I’ll never forget about Jake though ;))
This book was a fun and unique story. It was a friends to lovers story that took a long distance romance to the extreme. I loved watching Rana and Landon’s story play out. What I think I loved the most about this book was that it wasn’t necessarily the same set up we’ve come to expect from a Penelope book. This book is one continuous story (not broken into parts) with bits of the past sprinkled in to fill in the holes of Rana and Landon’s past. This book also wasn’t filled with a lot of excess drama. There really aren’t any outside factors that play a part in this romance. I really loved that fact. Now that isn’t to say this wasn’t an emotionally draining story or that is was lacking for anything. It just means that we get to see another side to Penelope’s writing.
This book was a fast paced read, but nothing was rushed. I thought the way she wrote Landon and Rana’s journey was perfect. She also had me laughing quite a bit in this story. Mostly by what came out of Rana’s mouth. You’ll understand better once you read this book. I also liked that she kept the reader guessing as the story went along. She revealed many things I wasn’t expecting when it came to these characters. It just made me want to turn the pages faster to get all the answers!! I truly couldn’t put this book down once I started it. It was that GOOD!!!!
Drunk Dial is a standalone novel told solely from Rana’s POV. I didn’t mind the one POV with this book, because we knew how Landon was feeling with hearing it from him. This is a complete standalone novel and there is NO cliffhanger. You don’t have to read any other of Penelope’s books to thoroughly enjoy this one.
In this book we meet Rana and Landon. They knew each other growing up because Rana’s family used to live in Landon’s family garage apartment. Rana and Landon became great friends when they were younger, until one night Rana’s dad decides to up and move the family without even a goodbye. Years have passed, but Rana still has lingering animosity towards Landon. So she decides to confront him and call him in California one night when she is drunk. What happens after is filled with humor, romance, torment and even some heartache. But overall this story was filled with love. The bond Landon and Rana have was timeless and I loved watching their story unfold.
I don’t think I can truly do this book justice with my review. I would just say READ THIS BOOK!!! You won’t be sorry. If you love Penelope’s books like I do, you don’t want to miss her latest GEM!!!!
