I Kind of Loved It!
There are a few author duo’s who can write a seamless story over and over again like Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland, and they have done it again with Dear Bridget, I Want You. I will say, this one wasn’t jumping at me with the blurb, but I knew I had to get it, because this duo has never let me down, and I’m so glad I jumped into this book when I did! This book grabbed me from beginning to end, and I fell in love with Bridget and Simon’s story and the wild ride that we were taken on.
On paper Bridget and Simon would never work. Bridget is a single mom, a super hero in her own right. She’s a nurse, and has suffered a loss no one should ever have to endure, but instead of letting it break her, it’s only made her stronger. Simon on the other hand comes off as care free, and the sexy doctor who never wants to settle down, but when these two meet, the attraction between them is undeniable. What is a chance meeting becomes more when Simon ends up becoming the new roommate for Bridget and her son Brendon, and things definitely become interesting.
I adored how these two tried to fight their attraction, and the things that would come out of both of their mouths. Simon’s personality had me laughing out loud multiple times throughout this book, and the way he got Bridget to open up had me swooning! These two really opened up around one another and I truly understood their fear of getting too close, but what neither of them truly understood before it was too late, was they were already too attached. When we got more of Simon’s back story, my heart broke for him, but I loved how he started to accept it and started to let Bridget in, and how much he started to care for her and Brendon. I was just scared that he would end up hurting himself and her in the process.
This is definitely one wild and sexy ride, that had me laughing out loud and falling in love with both of these characters. The things that these two go through to be together were crazy, and at times I wanted to shake both of them, but I’m so thankful for the road they traveled as it showed how much they truly meant to one another. I adored the writing, the laughter, the angst, and how there truly wasn’t a ton of drama in this book. The characters were beautifully written and the story had me hooked from beginning to end. If you’e looking for an amazing romance, I highly suggest one-clicking Dear Bridget, I Want You by Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland today!
