Dear Bridget,

I’m writing this letter because it’s highly doubtful I’ll ever garner the courage to say this to your face.

So, here goes.

We’re totally wrong for each other. You’re the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I’m just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England.

But here’s the thing… for some bloody reason, I can’t stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I want you.

The only reason I’m even admitting all of this to you right now is because I don’t believe it’s one-sided. I notice your eyes when you look at me, too. And as crass as I appear when we’re joking around about sex, my attraction to you is not a joke.

So, what’s the purpose of this note? I guess it’s a reminder that we’re adults, that sex is healthy and natural, and that you can find me just through the door past the kitchen. More specifically, it’s to let you know that I’m leaving said door cracked open from now on in case you’d like to visit me in the middle of the night sometime.

No questions asked.
Think about it.
Or don’t.
Whatever you choose.

It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.


REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

5 “I Want You” Stars!
"... I loved everything about this book."

The Review: 
I can never go wrong picking up a book by Penelope Ward or Vi Keeland, but with these two together, it’s ALWAYS an epic win! Told in alternating POV’s, Dear Bridget, I Want You was simply amazing! From the fun and entertaining meet/greet between the mains, to the friendships, to the realistic, sexy, completely addictive story, I loved everything about this book.

Bridget Valentine is a single mom who works hard, raises her eight year old son with bravery and courage and hasn't put herself out there since her husband passed away two years ago. Needing extra money to help support the mortgage, she rents out the converted garage to her friends best friend, unknowing that it’s the same doctor who she salivated over and completely embarrassed herself in front of, just three months earlier.

Simon Hogue is a resident doctor working in the US. He’s gorgeous, sexy and doesn’t mind putting himself out there, but he’s not looking for a commitment of any kind. When he realizes he’s moved into the same house as the woman he treated three months ago, the same woman he hasn’t stopped thinking about, everything starts to change and his heart begins to open for Bridget and her son, Brendan.

I loved Bridget and Simon right from the start! I’ve said this before in my reviews ... these two authors nail the meet/greet EVERY time! It’s always fun, exciting and full of sexual tension. The moment Simon walks into the exam room, there’s instant chemistry between him and Bridget, and I came away from that chapter with a huge, goofy grin on my face, excitedly flipping the pages to see what happened next.

Their journey to a happily ever after was consuming, sweet, brilliantly written and super steamy as Dr. Hogue has some of the cutest dirty-talk dialogue I’ve ever read. The characters were a win all the way around. Simon stole my heart, swept me off my feet and made me fall in love with him, one hundred percent! Bridget broke my heart with her loneliness and pain, but then mended it back together with her determination, her love for her son and her zest for life. When she opened her heart to Simon, it was beautiful and I felt it.

And that ending? Stunning and wonderful! It felt complete and left me lighthearted, smiling and totaling believing in real life happily ever afters!

The Wrap Up: 
Dear Bridget, I Want You was fun, flirty, a little bit angsty and emotionally satisfying. My tummy fluttered, my chest panged and the smile just wouldn’t leave my face. These two authors always bring the “feels” and always deliver a masterfully told story with a journey you want to read over and over. This one is definitely going into my reread pile.
