Release Blitz & Review: Dear Bridget, I Want You
Amazon | iBooks | B&N | Kobo | Google Play | Amazon paperback
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.
Whatever you choose.
It’s doubtful I’ll even end up sliding this letter under your door anyway.
I admit, the synopsis and the title of the book drew me in to this one. I am happy for you if you felt the same upon seeing the cover of the book. But, honestly, the title and the synopsis do a disservice to the story. Sure, Simon and Bridget have lots of cute, flirty moments like the title would imply. The writing....the meat of the story is so much more than the title would lead you to believe.
This is a story of hope and healing. Both Bridget and Simon have had their hearts crushed. The development of their friendship into something more is paced so wonderfully. There is a nice sprinkling of humor throughout the book. By the time we get to the the letter mentioned in the synopsis, we are ready for them to find happiness again.
The secondary characters are also well placed and add to the richness of the story. Calliope and Nigel are good friends. Bridget's son, Brendan, is written true to age but also with a heart that is in the process of healing. I just wanted to scoop him up and give him a hug.
Just a brilliant story once again from these two authors. I think Simon may be my favorite of all the heroes they have written. Great job ladies!
