We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind.
Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary.
Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out.
From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed.
She was an addiction.
At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise.
Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman.
But I couldn’t really have her.
I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her.
So I took a chance.
And that was when our love story really began.

Anytime Penelope Ward writes a new book, I swear that she can not top herself with how swoon worthy her heroes are and each time she proves me wrong. I loved this book so much, I don’t even have words. It was so unique the way Ryder and Eden meet, and how they connect emotionally before Eden even see Ryder’s face. Yeah, they met online, but not in the typical way you would expect. He first meets her as “Montana”, a cam girl and when he logs on, she’s singing a song his mom used to sing when he was a kid and from then on he’s hooked. She’s beautiful and as they talk, they open up more and more of themselves and it’s just a slow build up to a very sexy, yet sort of sweet, romance that first made me gravitate towards this author’s books. She took a really unique idea about finding love and she executed it so well. Both Ryder and Eden are likable, relatable and feel very real. I felt sympathetic towards Eden’s situation and Ryder’s own struggles and I didn’t drop the book until the last page turned. I appreciated that it wasn’t bogged down by drama and angst. It was an unconventional romance and I enjoyed it. 4-4.5 stars.
