Dear Letter Girl, I need to see you. When can we meet?
Her response never came. My secret pen pal with a dirty mind has ghosted me. I've roped Jules, my sweet as pie next door neighbor, to help me track her down.
There's only one problem--I'm falling for her. The tortoise shell glasses, out of this world curves and delicious treats are making the search for The Letter Girl even harder.
My notes were supposed to be a one time thing.
A little too much wine and naughty thoughts on a winter's night. I never thought Berk would write back. I wanted to tell him it was me, but the fear of rejection kept my lips sealed.
Now he’s enlisted my help to track down The Letter Girl and our search has him hot on my, ahem, her trail.
She's the girl next door.
He's my secret pen pal.
Truth is on a collision course with their hearts and it’s only a matter of time before one of them gets wrecked...
I have really enjoyed this series so far, The Perfect First and The Second We Met. And this third installment was just as good! In fact I might have identified with Jules, or TLG, The Letter Girl. Even though I haven’t had the same family issues that she’s had, some of what she said are the things that have followed me my whole life. One quote was: “I wasn’t exactly the girl guys fought over. I was the one they settled on dancing with when my much prettier sister or friend was taken. The consolation prize.” That’s been pretty much my whole life.
But then there’s Berk. How can anyone not fall in love with him? I mean, he totally made a big mistake with that agent, and somehow it might be okay, but I wonder if it could come up later on? How he fell for Jules though, was just perfect, and when he found out her secret, the way he handled it was so realistic to me.
I also loved getting to see some characters from one of the author’s other series, the Kings of Rittenhouse. Especially since we got the characters from my first book by this author, Ruthless King. I liked the reality tv baking show part we got with Avery from that book and Jules as her sidekick. I feel like I’ve been reading a lot of reality tv baking show stories lately. And normally that’s not something I’d watch, so it’s funny how much I’ve enjoyed those stories.
Another book I highly recommend!
